This is an older-style motel but quite well kept. Our room, No. 67, was clean and comfortable, although I found the bed to be excessively bouncy... a matter of personal taste, I think, but every time my partner rolled over in bed I was nearly thrown out. There was a spa bath, always a bonus for me. The kitchenette was adequate and clean; no oven but an electric frypan was useful. There is also a BBQ area near the pool. The pool was a pretty area, but in shade almost all day so the water was a bit brisk (although, to be fair, it is the middle of winter here). The beach is right across the road, calm water safe for swimming while we were there - there were no waves at all.
There are several quite acceptable restaurants within easy walking distance.
Our room was quiet apart from the last night; we were situated upstairs, the first room at the start of a long concrete balcony/walkway and right next to the open concrete stairs. Two or three of the next-door rooms were occupied the last night of our stay and for some reason the occupants of all (I think they were travelling together) were up and down all night, opening the heavy sliding glass doors and walking up and down the balcony and stairs at 2:30am. I'm not sure what they were doing; perhaps someone was ill. Not the fault of the motel, but just a warning when choosing a room that perhaps downstairs may be quieter.
Front-of-house staff were polite and friendly; I had organised to have some mail forwarded prior to us arriving; the young woman I spoke to on the phone, Bec, was very helpful when I asked her to set the mail aside if it arrived before we did. It was waiting for me when we checked in.
I would stay at this motel again.
