Affordable

Posted 16-Apr-2017 on Wotif
Pros: Central and easy to find shops and beach and the boats grate for families as well as groups.
Cons: just a fresh up on furniture
Location: Boat club and pool short drive to beaches and parks
Fun and peaceful could enjoy yourself just staying in the room with a full chef kitchen.

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 hotel, lovely big rooms and well equipped.

Posted 26-Feb-2017 on Wotif
Pros: cleanliness, room size, modern décor, great hotel
Cons: A couple of extra garbage bags under the sink
Location: slightly out of town, need to drive to the main beach swimming area and restaurants so you do need to still use the car which isn't always ideal
Great stay lots of fun lovely rooms nice and big and airy.

Thanks for your time in posting a review. We are pleased to read that you appreciated our clean, spacious apartments. It sounds liked you enjoyed our full chefs kitchen and we take on board your suggestion of extra garbage bags. Hopefully you managed to wander over to the Marina complex or The Boat Club to enjoy a meal there too. Look forward to welcoming you as a return guest in the near future.

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.

Nice place, not a resort

Posted 12-Jan-2017 on Wotif
While the room was large and spacious and we enjoyed the gorgeous balcony and pool and the staff were very attentive and lovely, we were disappointed by a couple of things. Being summer in QLD, it would have been nice to have full block out curtains or blinds that didn't let the light/sun in (at 4.30am!!) This was not a resort but simply a self-contained apartment complex with a pool. If that's what you are looking for, it's a fantastic place.

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...
