Stayed in a one bedroomed garden view apartment which was actually quite large. The apartment was well equipped with everything needed to self cater. The resort is very centrally located with access from both the Esplanade and Abbott Street, with the main entrance located in level 1 and accessed from Abbott Street. The resort is an easy walk from the train station (about 800 metres) and a 10-15 minute taxi ride from the airport (approx $20). The resort has a very nice barbecue area and a good pool. There are plenty of good restaurants and pubs along the Esplanade, all within very easy walking distance of the resort. The night markets are located virtually below the resort and run every night from 4.30 until about 10.30pm. Perhaps the only downside to being so close to the markets is the smell of cooking from the many food outlets, but it didn't really bother us. Megan on reception was very friendly and extremely helpful; nothing seemed to be too much trouble. I would certainly recommend the resort and stay there again.
