My wife won a best dressed compertition on Melbourne cup day, and won a one night stay at the marina apartements.
Whilst a few years old they are clean, tidy and pretty well presented and very spacious.
Location is stunning, and they have a large terraced balcony overlooking the marina and ocean.
Had a great time, great bars and restaurants all around in a two minute walk.

Room Tip: try and get a second floor room, we had room 11 and that was one of the best

The location is pleasant with a few restaurants and bars to choose from. The reception staff were cheerful and helpful. We stayed in a "luxury spa suite" - room was a good size, was very clean and had spa in the bathroom but certainly not luxurious. There is a nice pool but it looked like the pool area was closed because there wasn't any sun lounges, chairs or tables in the pool area to sit and relax - we contacted housekeeping to check if it was open and if we could get some sun lounges to be told they don't have any??? Overall the hotel is in need of refurbishment, the furniture is old and the paintwork is flaking in many areas, considering the quality and lack of breakfast the hotel is very overpriced.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Stayed in a King Spa room - for three nights. Nice view of the water. However I found the room to be old and outdated. The paint on the door frames were peeling and walls were dirty - found a hair in the bath. Also had a problem with the service. Room was cleaned on first day but the second day came back from work and found a plastic bag with towels next to bathrrom and room not made up. Overall the location and vire is good but improvements are needed. I would look at staying elsewhere before returning here.

We spent a pleasant Friday evening here with our niece and other family members. Busy, lively and with plenty of family groups as well as couples. Good value Italian and local cuisine with reasonable levels of service given the number of diners. Not used to both pre-ordering and pre-paying for one's meal. Clearly some clients have done a runner in the past!

Large room which felt more family focussed than the 'luxury spa room' we paid for. Bathroom was generous, large corner spa bath was great. Combined toilet and shower was a bit strange. Close proximity to restaurants and bars was great, but I was expecting a little more than just a room... no room service (not even the bar fridge was stocked?) and no housekeeping, even at 4pm when we called down for more towels! We were actually asked to come down to get them ourselves if we wanted them...
Linen was very average, no thick duvet (even though we didn't need it, it's always nice to have one!), only a sheet, itchy wool blanket and comforter.

Would be great for families, not so much for couples looking for a relaxing escape. Serves it's purpose as a room, with not much more.
Would be fine if it was a self contained apartment, but it wasn't, it was a hotel room that was missing all the essential elements.

We booked a one bedroom suite on wotif.com on the day we stayed (Perth was full) for about $140 and were very happy with our choice. About 20 years old, the hotel is well maintained and our room still had a sense of luxury and resort about it. Probably this is the result of walking into a room with a balcony that looks directly on to the water and boats in the marina. However the room was spacious with a big bed, lounge, table and chairs, wide screen television and pleasant decore. Instead of a bathroom it had a basin in the luggage/wardrobe/dressing area and a combined shower and toilet.
The resort has tennis courts, a swimming pool and three eating places. Our deal included a complimentary drink each in The Indian Ocean Brewhaus & Grill and as it was Tuesday $10 pizza night (normally $18.50) this was a cheap dinner.
This place was about a half hour north of Perth in a flash modern seaside suburb. The marina is only a couple of blocks from a good little shopping centre with supermarket, liquor store and a couple of little restaurants.
This was a happy choice for our last night in WA.

We stayed here for 2 nights while i was recouperating from illness so that did put a dampner on things. It was great value for money and the rooms were lovely and big. The bed was very comfortable and big too. The bathroom is a bit small and cramped but still got everything you need. You have beautiful views of the Marina and ocean. I would reccomend this place :)
