After calling to confirm (twice) that it was suitable and ok for me to bring another child for the weekend of our booking, I arrive to be told that this isn't possible. The answer was "we had a temp last week and it's probably her fault" Seriously!! After driving 2/12 hours with another child in the car I certainly wasn't...

This property has enormous perks. Firstly, it is less than half the cost of hotels in the same area (and I did my homework) so a big tick for the budget! The location is second to none, right opposite the beach, a short stroll to shops and restaurants, and a little drive to Mt Coolum and the great bike paths...

We had a beach front view which was amazing and private on the southern end of the building. Our room needed maintenance with the lock very difficult to lock and unlock both with key and manually - definitely a health and safety concern. We reported this to reception so hoping it is attended to. Tiles were chipped and needed attention....

Well located, nice views, not overpriced. Rooms were tired with paint flaking off ceiling in bathroom and on door handles. Sound of water through pipes was quite noticeable but not unpleasant. Clean enough but nothing special.

In writing this review I will keep things in perspective by looking a price, location and the resort itself. The price is good compared to what else is on offer along front in the town area. We paid $115 for a single night in an ocean view room. Most of the other resort and units will be close to double...

The unit complex is in a great location. We had room 121a which was on the ocean front. Beautiful view of the surf and the balcony is pleasantly set up for out door eating enjoying the view. The decor is very tired. Carpets worn and dirty, furniture chipped, however it was clean and tidy. The bed and pillows were very...

It's a great location!!! Our room had a awesome ocean view however the kitchen & bathroom could be updated. The only negatives we had was the horrible garbage smell in the car park and the reception wasn't the most welcoming.

Booked two rooms that was supposed to be adjacent to find out that they had booked opposite side of the resort. this could not be rectified even though we had asked reception every day to be moved. Could not be bothered letting us know that units had become available when I spotted the Vacancy sign out 2nd 3rd & 4th...

We stayed here early December, and the room was adequate , and although the DVD player wouldn't the unit was all we needed. They could have a freshen up. The guy in reception was very polite and helpful, in the end he gave me a breakfast voucher for Canteen, which is just below the hotel, it was nice to have...
