On arrival I thought it was nicer than I expected it to be. Price very reasonable for Easter when everyone seems to hike their prices up. Friendly check in. Three storeys, no lift. It is nice and private on the top floor but you can see straight into the ground floor units if you walk past. Some parking under cover.... More

The 2 bedroom apartment we had was basic and could have done with some more blankets and kitchenware. Noise between apartments was an issue. The rooms were clean enough. The restaurant was very good as were the facilities and grounds. If you're out and about in good weather this place would be a good choice.

My wife and I often camp, but the weather was forecast to be rainy, windy and cold. We looked into getting a room. We ended up in a first floor apartment for the same price. It was quiet, clean and comfortable. It was not brand new, nor was it luxury. It was very nice and a very good price. We... More

We booked for 1 night before heading over to Fraser. Facilities in the room were good. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. A bit out dated but funtional. The pool area was very nice and well maintained. We only met one member of staff.. a lady on reception.. quite rude and unfriendly. Made to feel like we... More

The room was very disappointing, needs maintenance very badly. There was a power point hanging out of the wall, cracks in the bath/shower base, the door to the shower was catching on the bottom and very hard to open, the shower head was also broken, broken window in the bathroom, broken lock on one of the windows so could easily...

Clean, walking distance to shops and restaurants. No lift, we were on 3rd floor but didn't mind the exercise. Decor could do with an update. Room has basics for doing ur own breakfast. No hairdryer in room :( limited undercover parks. Great pool.

Neat and tidy rooms with an excellent pool for the kids. Close to beach and shops (within walking distance) very affordable. Booked in easily over the phone in school holidays would highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in rainbow beach.

We checked in for two nights at the last minute as the hostel we had booked was terrible so we needed somewhere else to stay at short notice. The room and communal facilities were all spotless, comfortable and very pleasant. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. Small but nice pool area with hot tub, was very quiet when we...
