We stayed here in October as part of a large group and couldn't of been happier. Even tho' some of the units could do with a little refurbishment, they were all clean and well presented. The management was excellent allowing us to do a spit roast dinner on our last night and accommodating all our needs. The location is excellent,...

My husbands family own a time share here and we have been several times. It's always relaxing and I love that you can hear the waves at night. It's not a flash chain style resort or hotel but the two story villas are spacious and think of the little things like big towels and plenty of pillows. When staying in...

A nice little resort on the beach and very affordable. It caters for families and the staff there were very friendly. Working in Sydney, the best holiday is where you can leave the hustle and bustle behind, and this place accommodates. Good for tennis, plenty around to do and best of all, all you can hear at night is the...

Fairly neat and tidy. Beach is hop, skip and jump away (not sure if it is patrolled though). We stayed here in winter, so couldn't utilize facilities to their fullest. Only concern, there is only a small electric room heater, so most nights I was freezing, they could do with air conditioning. Would be great for a family in summer,...

Don't expect bells and whistles. Clean, functional but more for families or groups. I thought the bed was comfortable but my husband found it too hard. Faux leather lounges and well worn paint and tiles. We stayed in A block and had lots of foot traffic in front of our room.

By the beach with bushland next door so plenty of animals. Birds in particular wake you up very very early every day. All part of nature I guess! The bushland also helps to bring the insects. Quite a few mozzies despite the screens, and a few cockroaches. At least they supply insect spray for the rooms. No view to speak...
