We treated ourselves to an ocean/beach villa and did not regret it. Although we hadn't realised the villas weren't actually right by the beach until we got there, the hillside location didn't disappoint. Views were stunning.
Annette was welcoming and very helpful. She offered a late checkout as it was a quiet period.
Villa was very clean and more than spacious for just two of us. Felt quiet and private also. Decor was quite dated and some fittings could do with replacing. Kitchen and bathroom absolutely fine and well equipped. Plastic loo is just wrong though!!!
There was no aircon or ceiling fans in our villa which surprised me and could be a problem in summer. Pedestal fans were stored in cupboards. We were here in the winter and I worried we would be cold at night but it was absolutely fine.
The only big let down was the Whales Way restaurant which is on site but not really managed by the resort. Think there must be a premium charged for its location - which becomes pretty meaningless after dark. Paid $32 for a seafood curry and got 2 prawns and a scallop in it!!!! Staff didn't ask how meal was, presumably because they already knew the answer.
Would go back to Pandanus any time but not to the Whales Way restaurant!More
