Myself, my teenage daughter and 8 year old son stayed here over the Christmas period in apartment M410, which was classed as a 'premium' room and we loved it. Before booking I did my homework, they are all privately owned apartments so the decor will vary and having stayed in similar before emailed the staff, asked for certain rooms recommended... More

My daughter and I checked in on the 10th December 2015 for a one week stay. We were in Unit M402. We moved out 3 days later.

Room was very nice, comfortable and fully optioned. I looked around and received best rates from renting from Druitt real estate in Scarborough and found them very obliging. Also been told Peards real estate do a good deal on short term rentals. Overall a great holiday venue for family .

Hi Gary, Thankyou for your review. You raise an interesting point in your comments about Peards doing a great deal on short term rentals because unfortunately due to the By-Laws external agents are not permitted to offer short term rentals at Observation Rise, only longer term. Observation Rise Realty is the only company authorised to offer short term accommodation within... More

Not quite sure what to make of this place. Great views of Scarborough Beach and Indian Ocean (spectacular at sunset, and magical when storms roll in). Outside pool has a sandy beach, inside pool is dated, very contained and floor tiles slippery. Mostly residential suites now, which may be an issue if staying as an overnighter (unsure).

We're on holiday from the UK, and spent a few days in Scarborough. The apartment we stayed in offered lovely views of the sea and beautiful sunsets. Great location for the nightlife, bars and restaurants. The complex has a lovely outdoor pool area but the plastic chairs are uncomfortable and outdated.
