Just loved this resort, having just spent 6 days relaxing here. Everything about this place is spot on. From the friendly welcome from Renata, in saying that all the staff are friendly and accommodating. The units themselves are exceptional clean and spacious, well stocked with everything one requires during your stay. The views are great, and listening to the waves on the beach is magical to me. Well maintained place both inside and out, well done it's a credit to your hard work. Look forward to coming back

I cannot speak more highly about the staff & amenities of Shelly Bay Resort. We arrived a day early but they did everything they could to accommodate us. We eventually stayed for 2 weeks & had the most relaxing stay. Straight across from the beach, with a great pool. We were close to some excellent restaurants & cafes. Will stay here again next holidays, I cant wait.

On arrival we were welcomed and made to feel at home with plenty of free advice. The rooms were very clean, there was a kitchen with all equipment in apple pie order - even the cutlery on the drawers was neatly arranged. Very comfortable bed, overlooked the sea and on site pool. There is a lift - we are in late 70s and early 80s. Highly recommended.

This is the second time we have stayed at Shelly Bay Resort and will certainly return again when next in Hervey Bay. The location is great and the apartments are spacious and self contained and all have a waterfront view. All the amenities you need including swimming pool, tennis court and BBQ facilities. View the sunrise and sunset or just sit on the front deck and relax!
