I'm giving the Oaks a rating of 5 because the actual resort, the wonderful staff and the facilities were awesome. Check in was a breeze, the pool was lovely, the staff were warm and friendly and the rooms were clean and well appointed. Absolutely nothing wrong with the Oaks Waterfront at all. So here's what made for an angst ridden...

We stayed one night. The room was fine. It was very clean. The rate was good. The cable from the DVD player to TV was not plugged in and was a mixture of AV adaptors that, once connected, had a poor quality picture. Battery was missing from the remote. I guess not many people watch DVDs on holidays. The stay...

Our room was without fault, it was big with a balcony, good shower & everything we needed. The location right in the centre of town close to everything The Entrance has to offer is so handy & the pool area & spa are absolutely outstanding & its not expensive! We would stay here again.

We stayed one night. The location is great, with the rooms facing the water having lovely views. There is a variety of cafes, restaurants etc in walking distance, so it is very central. There is amusements such as carousel and other rides plus a park for children right in front of the accommodation ( the park is still under construction...
