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.

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...

The pictures were deceiving, it was no where near as nice as I was expecting and frankly it was disappointing. We were given a flyer to purchase $10 breakfast vouchers for the restaurant next door when we checked in and then when we attempted to purchase them the following day we were told they didn't do them any more. The...

Agree with others that sea views from the rooms at the rear are great however the decor in the room was tired, difficult to fill the kettle then find where to plug it in which was way away from where it was placed on arrival, the shower is difficult to access, the parking garage stunk of refuse and the unit...
