Perfect size for extended family, we had a grove house so the kids and their parents at one end, grandparents and me at the other. Good heating with the gas fire in the lounge and reverse cycle systems in all bedrooms and the kitchen. Temps dropped to 5 at night so we tested out the heating over our 3 night stay.

Good position for exploring the wineries and beaches. The resort has great beach access BUT no wifi (guys you need to sort this out and make it inclusive like other properties at this end of the market).

Room Tip: The beachfront houses with plunge pools (near the main pool) would not be my choice if I wanted priv...

Hi Weekender 1000.

Great to hear that you and your family enjoyed all that The Aqua Resort had to offer.

We have a high speed wireless fibre optic internet system installed at the resort. During a recent storm we experienced some damage to 4 of the 13 transmitters. All but one are now working and we expect a part for the last transmitter to arrive this week.

The temps are rising now and spring has finally arrived.

Kind regards

Grant

We arrived at Aqua resort and were received and processed very efficiently and with a personal touch, like we were old friends.
The Accommodation was first class, and beyond our expectations.It was roomy, comfortable and like home. The bed was great as was everything else.
MY only gripe was that the lighting wasn't great for reading for me.
Unfortunately the weather was lousy but i'm looking forward to going back.

Hi Doug Sydney.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay with us. We have had a very wet winter this year and look forward to our beautiful spring weather.

There is a lot to do in the south west region regardless of the conditions.

We hope when you return the sun is shinning and the shores of the bay are at their glistening best.

Kind regards

We just spent the October long weekend at Aqua Resort, Busselton. The Grove Villas are amazing! Grove Villas have 4 bedrooms, 2 masters, one with twin beds and one with 2 bunk beds. The villas are clean, new, spacious and have everything you would want from heating/cooling in every room to salt and pepper supplied.

The backyards are green, tranquil and a delight. This place is quiet, all glass is double glazed, and just so peaceful. We are very fussy and just loved this place. We have booked to go back next long weekend - its that great! Cant wait to try the pool and have a swim at the beach!

Hi CLK PERTH.

Paradise in the South West. Thank you so much for that description and we agree with you. Our infinity pool overlooking the ocean is solar heated. The sun is shinning today and the pool heating up ready for your next visit.

We are a group of 8 adults and were so pleased with the resort that we decided to extend an extra night. We took the 4 bedrooms & it just beautiful! Clean, new, spacious, fully equipped.Fire place, BBQ, full kitchen, separate laundry room! There were 2 ensuite master bedrooms, 1 bedroom with twin beds & 1 bedroom with bunks beds that sleeps 4. 1 common toilet in the laundry room, & 1 common toilet with shower.
Driving down to Margaret River and visit the vineyards are 15-30mins down south. In fact a lots of good vineyards are just 15 mins drive away. Busselton town is just 10km away, we goes there for grocery shopping.
There is an infinity pool in the estate, facing the sea, however it was too cold for us to use it.
Nevertheless we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and looking forward for our next visit soon!

We thank you for your time in reviewing the resort and look forward to seeing you again very soon.

We stayed at Aqua for 3 days it was amazing we stayed in a grove house and it was extremely clean, new and large it was so comfortable and modern, really close to shops, wineries and food. Having a fully working kitchen and laundry with all the appliances makes a big difference. We are already planning our next trip

Shell19,

thank you for taking the time to review The Aqua Resort. Our cleaners do a fantastic job. They have the hardest job with the least appreciation. I will pass your comments onto them.

Kind regards

We spent 2 nights at the resort last weekend. Beautiful accommodation, friendly staff, nice and central to the wineries and Margaret River.
Only thing I would change is bigger towels (please) the towels were standard bath size, in a place like this I would expect fluff bath sheets. Also a bit of cover from the weather on the verandah, it was raining but not really cold when we were there, would have been nice to sit outside with a glass of red :)

Just spent 3 days in the best accomodation.
The whole resort is a pleasure to be in.
Quiet, well maintained, private and well situated.
Even though it doesn't provide restaurants there are numerous eating venues or coffee shops in easy walking distance along a beach path with fantastic views.
We entertained 20 people for a sundowner easily.
Couldn't speak highly enough of the staff and how they accommodated our needs.
One tiny drawback would be the shower in the ensuite. Bad design.

Room Tip: The beds are firm.... Back rooms are better.....sun rises in the front rooms
