This was our second trip to the Akama Resort. We stayed in a 3br apartment 2 years ago (reasonably high up, overlooking the ocean and the pool) and had a great stay. This time we were given a 2br poolside apartment. We were a little worried that the two years would have been hard on the rooms but everything in our apartment was sparkling clean and as new.
We especially liked the poolside location. We had a small lawn/garden off our balcony and the children could wander down to the pool when it suited them.
A really nice touch is the free Nespresso machine from reception (you only pay for coffee pods) and the great selection of DVDs for all ages. The resident managers are very helpful and their son very kind and happy to play with our kids. The pool is lovely and there's a spa and BBQ in the pool area too, and lots of interesting restaurants along the marina.
The front (main) bedroom was large enough for a very comfortable air bed for our daughter with our sons in the twin bedroom.
Great location and a super holiday choice - we go to Lady Elliot Island regularly and the children beg for a few nights in HB on the way.
