The Point Resort
Reviewed July 17, 2008

We stayed in the Point serviced apartments for a week in July. We had a ground floor 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment block is 2 years old, but I think maintence has not been good. The saucepans need replacing, the outdoor furniture is mismatch and had two rusty chairs. The two single beds in rm 2 are so narrow they would only suit small children. There are two very worn areas in the carpet with slits through to the underfelt.Lightbulbs blown. It rained for the first three days and the open tiled area from the foyer to all the rooms was wet and dirty, when it stopped raining, the dirt dryed, it was not mopped or swept the whole week. Mobile phone reception is very poor in the building, and our 3 mobile phones did not work the whole week.
We have stayed at Bargara Blue and Manta ( also in Bargara) both properties much better.

Stayed: July 2008

This resort is a group of condo type apartments. They are well outfitted with full kitchens, our own laundry room (takes quite awhile to do laundry) and are very spacious. We had a 3 BR 2 BA for 6 adults, and the balcony overlooked the ocean. There is a pool and BBQ area out back. Skip working with the front desk staff to book any tours, but book directly with the provider - may get a better deal by doing this - and the front desk staff is not there 24 hrs should you have any problems. Easy walk to the main street and restaurants and beaches. Great location for Mon Repos turtle watching.
