We booked at Boambee Bay for 2 reasons, one as a stopover on our way home (we were driving back from Noosa to Sydney and needed a break!) and for me to rediscover the area after 20 years.
For a family of 4 for 2 nights it was very reasonably priced. For us with a 9yo and 4 yo, the big safe playground and beautiful grounds were perfect. Our unit (ground floor, to the back corner of the property) was a little bit dark, and the bathrooms a little dated, but it really didn't bother us.
The facilities are lovely, the proximity to Boambee Bay is perfect and the unit very comfortable.
Hopefully one day soon we'll be back for longer and can enjoy the lovely looking pool, restaurant and bar areas. Reception and staff lovely and friendly. Thank you for a nice stay.

We only got to spend 4 out of our 7 nights booked due to illness, but what we did have was well enjoyed by all. The resort is very clean and comfortable and the amenities are really enjoyable aswell The children had a ball and we had some peace. We went to dinner in the indian restaurant and it was very tasty good quality food. We also visited the hairdressers and the staff there were very friendly and helpful and did a great job on my sons hair. all in all it was a perfect place for us, wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: we requested a room without steps due mobilty issues with my mother - the majority of units have a set of stairs outside them - even teh ground floor units have steps leading to them so be aware of this when booking

So pleased to see the resort still so well maintained with the amazing pool, beautiful gardens and great size unit with modern furniture - having two bathrooms and two TV's perfect for a family.

My parents were one of the initial timeshare owners to buy at Boambee Bay and we're so glad they did. We have so many great memories over the years, swimming in the pool with family & friends, cooking bananas on the BBQ, trying to stay upright in the canoe's - great fun! We also exchanged weeks both within Australia and overseas but having recently sold decided to get the family all back together to use our final week back where it all started here at Boambee Bay. It was great, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the family time.

TIP: Café prices are reasonable, can't go past the bacon & egg roll, good old fashion milkshake and lime cheesecake. Yum!

Thanks Boambee Bay for many years of great family holidays!

Room Tip: #1502 High floor at the back overlooking the creek, lovely outlook, close to everything.

We have been probably 6 to 8 times over the years. When the kids were younger it was a great place to just kick back and relax. Particularly liked the fact that there are no cars in the resort itself. Good pool for the kids. These days we tend to use it as a base. Last year we stayed here and travelled to Armidale for the University open days. This year it was to break up our trip to Dubbo.

Nice setting overlooking the estuary. The rooms are good with all the necessary facilities. Has indoor and outdoor spas, tennis court (full and mini), squash, sauna, gym and kids room.

The onsite restaurant has been a little up and down over the years, but the current instance is great. Good food at good prices.

We stayed in one of the two bedroom apartments, one queen bed and two singles. A number of the reviews have made reference to the resort and rooms being 'old' and 'tired', this has not been our experience at all. The resort has been here a while, that much is obvious from the style of the buildings, and it is not what I would consider 'luxury' accommodation. But it is a long way from 'run down' or 'tired'.

Our apartment was lovely - the living and kitchen space was a good size and very comfortable. We have a three year old and an infant, so plenty of noise and activity, but we still managed to find enough space to stay out of each other's hair. The balcony, which is fully screened, looks out onto a beautiful run of Eucalyptus trees and even in June was warm and sunny. The room had a wall heater which managed to keep the entire living space warm enough not to need jumpers, which was fantastic also.

There are plenty of things to do at the resort, most of them free. We hired canoes and spent a day paddling on the creek, which was a highlight.

We only ate from the restaurant once. It was okay, nothing wrong with it, but there are better options out and about. We were mostly self-catered and the kitchen was more than well equipped for our purposes.

A number of other reviews have made comments about noise. We were staying on a second level apartment, so I can't comment on noise from above, but we heard nothing from other apartments. We were placed right next to the tennis courts and during the day there was a fair bit of noise coming from there, but it is a family resort and this is kind of to be expected. Come the evening and at night we heard nothing from the other guests.

We would definitely stay here again, especially as the kids get older, and we would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

Stayed: June 2013
