Booked a long weekend away and couldn't be more happy. The rooms were clean with plenty of space. A large balcony (could have used some nicer furniture on the balcony) with spectacular views of the bay. The area is very nice as well with a few restaurants and bars within a 5 minute walk from the resort.

This is the only serviced hotel at Shoal Bay direct waterfront....
