This place was scrumptious, and will especially appeal to anyone who loves the rainforest. Compared to similar priced places around the area, I thought this was good value for money. It had a lovely pool with grassy area in the shade to lounge around as well as an indoor area to play billiards or table tennis, and a bbq, perfect for the wet season.
I took my seven year old and he was happy with the pool although we didn't stay long enough to make use of the other facilities.
We had a room with a queen and single bed with kitchenette. The linen was clean, the room was spacious and light and allowed a close connection with the surrounding lush rainforest. We could only stay 2 nights, but will definitely be back to stay longer next time.
I especially loved the verandah which just had flyscreen around it, allowing the forest experience without the bother of mozzies.
The location is not in the heart of Byron, which I preferred. Byron (about 5 mins drive) is very busy and full of traffic and it was a lovely retreat to come back to the peace and quiet of the resort. It is not your top-of-the-range 5 star resort, but it was certainly a step above similar priced accommodation, and more than we were expecting.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. I left a DVD in the player and upon return to Melbourne, they happily posted it back to me free of charge.
I agree with the review from jacjui that the online pictures do not do the place justice. It is MUCH nicer than it appears on the website.
