Easy parking and easy access to lift from carpark. Although the apartment was not ocean front, level #2 was high enough to see and hear the ocean. The room size...

Dana and Robin were wonderful and super helpful and flexible. We had booked four night and ended up adding on two more. The apartments are spacious and...

We had booked a 2 bedroom apartment and were lucky to get # 19 on the 5 th floor. The view was magnificent. As other guests have mentioned, the apartment was carefully maintained and the lady at the reception desk was very friendly and competent. We are more than happy to recommend this resort.

This is an apartment hotel with no restaurant. We had a two bedroom two bathroom apartment with a pool view. It was very spacious and airy, with good aircon. Only downside was that the second bedroom was very small with an aircon unit taking up most of the balcony (and the accompanying noise). Apartment was clean and well serviced, although...

We stayed at Akama Resort for the Queensland Youth Surf Life Saving Championships. Its the best self contained apartment we've stayed in, it had everything a real home away from home experience. After a hard day competing on the beach the kids could have a swim and we used poolside BBQ. Overall a great experience.
