On the Bay Apartments - Bribie Island
Reviewed June 20, 2010

It was suppose to be a different experience for me & my partner as we thought we would celebrate my partner's birthday up at Bribie Island. It took me awhile to decide where we would stay at Bribie & On the bay resort looked decent at their website.

I booked for us to stay for few nights which wasn't cheap & to be honest it wasn't worth it. When we got there receptionist greeted us & showed us our room. When we opened the front door oh my gosh the room smelled like cigarette smoke. What a disgusting smell!

Apartment was nicely decorated & fully furnished. Few downsize we had to remove all rubbish in the apartment or pay $100 for cleaning surcharge, toiletries wasn't supplied, no gym, no spa & the noise from the neighbours at 6am every morning was very annoying even the weekend so we didn't have much sleep!

There was few small stores like Woolies & IGA about 5 -7 mins drive. Nearest shopping centre was at Morayfield which was 35mins drive from the resort.

Overall it wasn't what we expected & the resort needs to improve on the sound quality of the neighbours & offer daily room service would be great.

I had the most wonderful time the room was lovely and clean and had a great feel to it. It was not far down to the corner store and over to the little beach and every morning my whole family including my aunty who is in a motoroised scooter went walking by the bay down for a coffee. The evenings were also just a short stroll for my mum to give the pokies a spin at the local club whilst my sister and I enjoyed a wine watching the sunset. Again it was just a short walk back to my comfy bed
