Great stay in Hervey Bay

Posted 23-Mar-2017
Akama resort is an apartment style hotel with very spacious rooms and a full kitchen. It's close to a supermarket (though walking at night can be creepy with the bats flying around by the Botanical Gardens). The staff are so friendly and incredibly helpful. Definitely the highlight of our stay at Akama. Dana had a full package ready for us when we arrived outlining nearby food options and our excursion plans. It's a bit further from the barge than we expected - about a $45 cab ride each way. But we enjoyed our stay there as a stopover to Fraser Island. Highly recommend Akama and there was laundry in the suite too!

Great apartment

Posted 15-Jan-2017
Very quiet location away from beach and shops restaurants. Excellent apartment , ocean view on level 4 ok but mostly of harbour . Not that exciting . Pool and spa very nice as was garden and bar b q facilities. Robyn very helpful and took time to explain Fraser Island tour which was well worth the time to go and see.

3 Night Getaway

Posted 23-Dec-2016 on Wotif
Pros: Quiet for a block of apartments, except when the kids upstairs were running about overhead...
Location: There isn't eating places nearby so a car is a must...
Lovely clean place, used the pool everyday... pity there aren't more places to walk to eat out at...

Great place to stay, lovely staff. Nice little pool. Had a massive room which was great! Only problem is that there is hardly anything around in the local area. Great place though, free parking great room
