We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with a 10 night stay at the apartments. The room was great - clean, neat, and met our purposes perfectly. The grounds are very well maintained by Trevor. [For the Park View below - read Garden View / for Lagoon View read Fantastic Water View]. The apartments themselves and the other buildings and areas... More

Stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment with family and friends. Apartment was clean and spacious and we made good use of the balcony with its beautiful views of the bay. On dusk you can see turtles in the water. We made good use of the BBQ on the balcony and the pool. If planning on a stay longer than 2... More

The staff were very helpful and friendly. You could walk to the marina or into 'town' along the walking track or a short taxi ride if you didnt have a car. Definitely worth... More

I have stayed at these apartments on several occasions however my visit this month was my last. I attribute this to the poor service and low quality of the apartment itself. I booked a 2 bed-roomed spa apartment with water views. Contrary to the spectacular water views advertised our apartment (218) overlooked the driveway and garbage bins. The water views... More

Nice apartment , however if you are staying there the best apartments are those with the sea views. We were disappointed . Our apartment had an obstructed view of the marina. We chose Marina Shores based on website views of the sea. Having paid the same price as the sea view apartments it certainly left us feeling that we over... More

Spacious one bedroom apartment with ocean views. Full sized kitchen which would be perfect if you wanted to stay a while. Very nice and perfect for what we wanted. Only negative is that most of the glasswear had lipstick stains on them so we had to wash them before use
