We stayed two nights at this motel.
The man at the reception was very friendly. The room was charming, spacious and clean, but it smelled weirdly somehow. It smelled as if oil had been cooked the evening before. Bathroom was clean and quite nice.
Free wifi was rather useless, it

Perfect location, close to parkrun start and just 1 block back from the esplanade. It was well appointed with everything you would need for a longer stay than our one night. Had a ground floor room which is perfect if you’re staying with luggage and also need an early start. Nice

Do I book the airport shuttle or is it hourly and we wait at airport?
Hi Andrea - this is a small motel not a large resort so the shuttle runs to a limited timetable.Wr always catch a taxi from the airport TO Reef Palms but book (at least the day before) the free shuttle TO the airport. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Hi, was just wondering. How old do you have to be to stay a night here?
Hi, I have no idea I am sorry. We had one minor with us (16) but he was accompanied with adults.

Staying for 6 nights. See breakfast is, $10 per person. Is this for a cooked or continental breakfast?
Breakfast included is not a cooked breakfast, If breakfast is included in your room rate , you can add a cooked breakfast for an extra $8.00

We have an early flight before the shuttle starts, how hard is it to get transportation to the airport at 4:00 am
You can easily call a cab or have it prearranged. The shuttles don't run that early.

what time is the airport shuttle offered? Our flight does not arrive till 8:30 pm. Can we be picked up then at the airport and be checked in? Thanks
We arrived about 11 pm , got a taxi to the hotel , the staff knew we were coming and gave us a code to open the box where our room keys were . They told us what room we were in and that was that . very enjoyable hotel

"Try somewhere else"
"Ask for a room at the rear of Hotel overlooking the reserve"
"Ask for a room away from the after hours side entrance gate. This can be noisy especially late in the evening,"
"Good room but keep an eye on the shower"
"We had a room which backed onto a small park. It was beautifully shaded and cool."
