“Great resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Stayed for 3 nights in bondi wing in a 1 b/r. Our unit was well equipped and clean. Allbeit kitchen was way too small. Didnt try cooking in it just ate out.One concern is the shower over the bath. Very dangerous. No grab rail so getting out is hard. The staff were all friendly and attended to our needs quickly. We loved seeing and hearing the kids having fun but the constant noise of the spa operating meant our balcony door was kept closed. Great resort though.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

We recently returned from a 9 night stay and had a wonderful time. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the pools were lovely. Yes the large pool was on the cold side, however the other 2 pools were heated and the large spa was great, very hot and very big! Our 18 month old absolutely loved the water slide and playground. It is a very family friendly resort and was full of kids. Great location, right across the road from the surf club.

The rooms were comfortable, however were on the small side and would benefit from updating. There was only 1 couch in our room, (we had a 2 bedroom) not sure how that would work for larger families. We had a pool access room and loved being able to walk out from the balcony, however it was annoying that we could not lock our room from the balcony (someone always had to go around).

Saying that, these were minor things we noticed. We really enjoyed the resort and facilities and we will hopefully return again next year!!

Great pool for kids, lovely play area for the kids, excellent location opposite beach and surf club. Only disappointing thing was that guests can smoke on their balconies. We could not open our balcony door as the unit under us smoked all day and night. Breakfast on the balcony came with a side of cancer. Very unpleasant, especially for my young son who was sick with bronchitis. We thought it was a smoke free resort but my husband saw guests smoking next to the pool-gross!!!

Dear Bronn_83

We receive many great comments and are always grateful when our guests take the time to share their experiences with us and other travellers.

Regarding secondary smoke, all public areas including the pools are smoke free, however this does not relate to individual unit balconies. If you have the opportunity to return, please do not hesitate to contact myself directly as we can offer several other options within the complex, including level four which may be more comfortable.

In the meantime, we look forward to you and your family returning.

We were surprised to have to use the room upstairs as we especially asked for no stirs. We
managed with as few trips up and down as possible! The walk to the shops was great and the sea view was much appreciated.

The facilities at the resort were great (huge pool, heated spa, gym etc) but the room was not as good as expected. We got a bargain rate so did not expect water views etc. The room was a one bedroom "apartment" and the kitchen area was very small with barely enough room for two people to prepare/cook breakfast etc at the same time. The television was a very small and old "box" style (about 20" or 22") which a large resort like this should be ashamed of.
Wi Fi had to be paid for ($13 for two hours) - most accommodation places do not charge.

Room Tip: If you want a bit of comfort ask for, or choose, a room with pool frontage. We didn't see inside...

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at your resort; significantly helped by the fantastic weather!!! Our 1 bdrm apt was rather small but adequate for our 7 night stay, kitchen very small but fairly well equipped. Lovely view from our balcony overlooking the pool and spa area but unfortunately, being in the 'glenelg' section, our balconies missed the sun. The spa was way to strong in chlorine - rediculously so but we mentioned this to reception on our departure, yes we realise we should have mentioned this straight away. All in all, a fabulous location and pretty good value for money.

Room Tip: Don't stay in 'glenelg' if you enjoy sun on your balcony.
