Thanks Ingrid for your review. I are glad you enjoyed your stay, found us clean and value for our prices. I am sorry about the airconditioning over the top bunk but it is not possible to change the layout of the family rooms. We only have 5 of the family rooms and only recommend for 2 adults and 3 children...

Stayed for a couple of nights and loved it - could have stayed longer if time permitted. After travelling, this is a great spot for rest and recuperation. Rooms are clean, bed it comfortable and the pressure in the shower is great. Close enough but far enough away from town and within walking distance to the casino. Highly recommended

Spend a few days after my overseas flight. Nice place, a lot of space - the very right spot for acclimatisation. Have been here some years ago and didn't regret the decision to come here again. It's a little longer walk to town centre but if you try to acclimatise to Australian climate - it's the right way to do...

After a long day on the road my first impression was an inviting one with the complex abundant with a variety of palms. The reception staff were polite, efficient and friendly. Parking in front of the villa was very convenient with a room containing a queen and two singles worked well. The room was clean and well appointed. The bathroom...

Nice clean self contained cabin style accommodation which was basic but adequate, with small kitchenette, fridge, TV, free Internet service,nice pool area and in a good location, a bit of a walk to town however there are restaurants at nearby hotels at reasonable prices available. Nice quiet spot with friendly staff, would return and would recommend.

A very pleasant and enjoyable stay on two occasions, with staff helpful at all times. Room was clean, neat and tidy, together with the laundry block a very short walk from the room. Very relaxed pool surroundings with nice easy laid back chairs. With the golf course at the back of the complex, it does also make for an enjoyable...

We enjoyed the cabin style accommodation. The reception staff were very friendly. Good shower, fridge and tv. Free wifi. The pool was nice though a tad chilly. A little bit of a walk into town however there are good dinner options nearby. Would recommend!
