Great location, great room, great amenities. Would definitely come back again. Two pools with bbq facilities and near new rooms, nice alfresco and convenient car parking. Close to both beach and town which makes everything cheaper and easier to walk to. Couldn't even hear the neighbours which is always a bonus !

The resort is very centrally located only a few minutes away from central Macrossan Street and does not allow children below 16, so it's very quiet and perfect for couples. The one bedroom apartment is huge and great value if you stay 4 nights (one night...
