5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities

The 1 bedroom apartment was spotless and comfortable. It had everything you needed. The pool was a lovely temperature and plenty of sun lounges around the pool. We found the bed a little hard for our liking but otherwise wouldnt hesitate to recommend staying there.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Great location for walking to town, the marina and the beach. Pool is nice. It’s more like apartments than a ‘resort’ but we were happy with the rate we paid in off season November. Found our studio to be comfortable and well designed for a 5 day stay. I would suggest they add a black out curtain to the front window in 17B - I always find it impossible to sleep in past 5am in QLD in spring/summer without blackouts given the lack of daylight saving time. Overall, really nice.
