Top family getaway - Hervey Bay itself is great, but having Fraser Island just a stones throw away....... even better! Our room's view must have been one of the best; pools - too warm in Jan; excellent location for the marina (esp. during Whale watching season).

If you want the best view in Hervey Bay this is definitely the place to stay. They have amazing views and their facilities, like the tennis courts, the pools and the secure parking are great! But with saying all that, the resort really needs to update! A place without Wifi can really make or break the stay. Although they offered...

Fantastic views and location. Room old and smelt like wet dog. Room not as clean as we would have liked, dirty under all the beds. Needs modernising to bring up the standard. Would not stay here again

The rooms were good, the view was amazing, the pools temperature were good. The location was lovely and quite, even though our stay was in peak time. A couple of minor things the pools didn't always seem to be clean, and it would be nice to have a TV and air-con in the main bedroom.

Great family accommodation. Room was great. Views were stunning. Kids loved the pools and tennis court. Easy access to the beach for a swim and walk. Easy walk to the Marina and shops. Loved watching the dolphins play in the water outside our unit.

The views from our room were amazing! The room was great. Only suggestion I would make is the room we were in only had a TV in the living area, nothing in the main bedroom. Also the cane lounge was extremely uncomfortable to lay down on to watch TV. Apart from those couple of small things, everything else was really...

We had a refurbished 3 bedroom unit which was perfect for our family. Everything was neat and tidy and the new kitchen was lovely. The pool was very nice and the gardens very well maintained. We enjoyed our stay.
