      The location and the room size was suitable for our needs as was the amenities. Location was awesome too.

      The smell of cleaning products in our room was overpowering and gave us a headache for the first night. The front desk only welcomed us and didn't ask at anytime how our accomodation was etc and at checkout no one asked if we enjoyed our stay, it was just take keys and goodbye!! Over all the facilities were really good but staff could work on there customer service. For that simple fact we won be staying there again.

      Location to where I was working, the cleanliness and design of the rooms, the friendliness of the staff.

      I was disappointed in that the advertising claimed free internet yet this was not the case so I had to tether to my iPhone to give me limited access to internet for my work!

      Comfortable family accommodation fully equipped and self-contained, well located close to the beach, shops and restaurants

    • Family with children

      Great aspect - view over the beach, plenty of sun in the morning, very nice sitting on the balcony. The apartment is clean, tidy, and well appointed. In particular I found it very light and airy inside. Easy off-street parking and easy access to the building. All of that said, this is not a 'top of the range' apartment, more good 'middle of the road'. The price was right though and I'd happily go back.

      The location, particularly the beach being so near. The apartment was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. We were greeted by a member of staff in reception who was very helpful and provided a lot of useful information.

      We thought the apartment was very nice. It was clean, comfortable and well equiped. Although the road was a little noisy at times, it was well worth it to be so close to the beach. It was nice having a sea view.

      The pool area was nice but the water was very cold.

      Comfortable and luckily I think it was peaceful too.

      Big room. Ocean views. In-room washer/dryer. Full kitchen.

      In serious need of a re-model. Industrial fluorescent lighting and pastel green walls give a serious hospital vibe.

      Very good facilities, staff and location.

    • Family with children

      Fully self contained and just right for a family getaway. Comfortable accommodation.

      This is our second stay, and will not be our last. The apartments are roomy, with a separate bedroom, a good sized laundry/bathroom, a very spacious kitchen- the only thing lacking was a dishwasher, but that doesn't worry us, and a large comfortable loungeroom with huge tv, dining table and chairs, long sofa and an armchair, and finally a well- sized balcony with a 4seater glass-topped table, overlooking the beach (glimpses). The onsite Indian restaurant had beautiful food, and there were good ethnic restaurants within easy walking distance. There were also several takeaways and small supermarkets. The walk/cycle track is just across the road, and meanders for many kilometers in both directions.

      Nothing, we will be back.

      The managers were extremely helpful and very friendly. They went out of their way to help up with finding an appropriate tour of Fraser Island. The rooms were spacious and clean, the pool was excellent, car parking was very convenient and the location was perfect. I would recommend anyone to stay here.

      Everything about the resort was excellent. Location was good, room was very clean and comfortable and staff were fantastic and always willing to help. I would be happy to go back again.
