First impression on arriving there is very good ,but the welcome of the staff was a little frosty on hearing we would like an en-suite camp site. We was told where to go and I must say had it not been the night of a big storm we would not have stayed there. All we could see was neglect and... More

Stayed for 1 night stop over. There were 2 lounge chairs in the room both of which were grubby and uninviting to sit in. We did not use these chairs. The carpet was very badly stained. The TV sound was crackling and was hard to hear. The small fridge made a terrible noise while it was running. Outside small court... More

Absolutely beautiful 1 bed apartment. Very clean, spacious new unit. When we arrived we were greeted by Susie who told us the power was out and immediately upgraded us. Fortunately power came straight back on. Room has extensive ocean views, very comfy lounge and bed. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here because they had ensuite sites available - however they are old and tired and in need of some maintenance and TLC. Filmsy shower curtain means the ensuite floods every time. Venue was rated 4* didn't see the room accommodation but won't be rushing back.
