Centrally located on The Entrance waterfront - and directly opposite the park, playground and very popular Pelican Feeding (a must visit) - the Oaks Resort provides clean and comfortable accommodation. Our room was quiet and offered a beautiful view of the beach and inlet. There's a good variety of cafes, restaurants and shops within a short walking distance.

I have stayed here a number of times. While they are not serviced apartments, the rooms are spacious and clean. Great pool and spa conveniently located right on the promenade at the Entrance. Great restaurants and courtesy buses to most clubs. Highly recommended

Stayed overnight in a two bedroom ocean view with another couple. Good view of the water and close to restaurants. Hallways dark and gloomy with paint damage and scuff marks. The apartment has only one bathroom. Apartments and furnishings in poor condition. Stay was in winter so didn't use the pool. Expensive apartment for low season and condition of room.

I booked and aid for a winter special for this hotel and then read the hotel reviews. I got scared. Just checked in today and the hotel is light, clean and very comfortable. Reception girl was lovely and friendly. I'm yet to check out the area but did see the Pelicans today. Worth the visit just to be so close... More

Hallways were fine & well lit, the room large & clean with an awesome view over the pelican feeding area on the waterfront. I work in a motel myself, so I'm not as finicky as some people are who look for every tiny little thing to complain about! But really... credit where it's due. I didn't find anything amiss in...

Wasn't too bad. Staff were pretty unfriendly though. The hallways were freaky... So dark and gloomy. The carpet smelt funny & they really need to dust... So bloody thick. Wouldn't come back here. No room service & when we requested towels we were told to ' Come and get them ourselves'...

Organised a room at last minute. We were given a room overlooking the bridge on 5th floor. Our first impression of the room was clean and tidy. Adequate hanging space for our clothes. The bed was comfortable and we both had a good nights sleep. The room came with a mid size fridge rather than a bar fridge. The bathroom... More

Stayed in Ocean View Studio. The room was comfortable with good views. The hall ways need updating with new carpet and painting. The shower has a very big step into it (located above shower) so if knee or leg problems do not stay here. There is a full size fridge which was great. The chairs on the verandah are uncomfortable.... More
