Stayed for 4 nights in one of the King apartments, it was absolutely amazing. Very well appointed, with views to die for. Really quiet and relaxing. We will definitely be returning. The only negative is no door from the master bedroom to the en-suite, and a bi-folding screen window from the en-suite that looks out into the living and dining...

The view was amazing but the room wasn't perfect. Just small things that were annoying. There was no door between the ensuite and master bedroom, meant very little privacy. The king size bed only had 3 pillows, couldn't find any spare ones or any extra blankets. And there were no blinds on the doors/windows looking out to the balcony, the...

Absolutely stunning views. The apartment is spotless. So big and clean, with amazing views. Bathrooms are gorgeous, so modern and big! Bedrooms are spacious and beds are super comfy. The man at reception was lovely and friendly too. Would highly recommend staying here, whether your a family or a group of friends or a couple. Pool is amazing.

Spent two nights at this resort over the weekend and really enjoyed it. My wish list included somewhere quiet with a view and both wishes were surpassed by the very obliging manager. The views were amazing and the apartment was perfectly quiet despite being on the roadside. A standout feature of the apartment was how well equipped the kitchen was....

3 nights stay was not long enough. Such a quite spot with magic views. The Pool was a delight and even has views. We stayed in the one bed unit and it was open and clean. Everything we needed was there. We walked to the Sand Blow and down to the Surf Club from there. There were a few privacy...

Myself and partner decided to book some last minute accomodation as we didn't want to camp in the rain for the weekend.

We recently stayed for 7 nights and it was wonderful. Amazing views with great facilities. Just a short walk to the sand blow which offered stunning views also. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms spotless and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We will definitely be back next year!
