“Excellent family accommodation and facilities”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

I visited the resort for a weekend reunion with 5 other families. Each family had a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa for a very reasonable winter rate. Everything was geared perfectly for a family stay, with BBQs and microwaves in each villa, a kids's club to free the adults up for Saturday night dinner in the restaurant, and very accommodating managers at the Endota spa for weary mothers. Downside: the restaurant/cafe wasn't open in the morning and it was hard to find a decent coffee nearby. Next time I'm bringing my Nespresso. Otherwise, a very enjoyable stay.

I was one of the guests who stayed at your resort from 24th to 27th june. I was there for my nieces wedding where the ceremony and reception was held on the saturday. I couldn't faulter anything, I found the villa I was sharing to be a+ and even though we were in and out all the time I still enjoyed the facilities that was on offer .The bedrooms I found to be very comfortable and the living area to be spacious with all the mod cons on hand. In regards to the wedding on the Saturday afternoon ,the ceremony was held on the grounds of the resort. It was so serene, the birds were even chirping. The reception after was also there ; the canapes were scrumptious and they just kept coming. The main menu was unbelieveable and the service was outstanding a credit to the chef&staff of 3Nippers Restaraunt...... So if you are considering a wedding check the package that is on offer. Thanks again for a wonderful weekend; Regards one satisfied customer(and aunty). PS Thanks to the cleaners who work so hard in such a limited time frame to get each and every room on the resort cleaned after guests leave. A+

Pleasant surprise....lovely cosy villa, light, airy, sunny. Quiet location. A few steps walk to the pristine Diamond Beach. Accommodation had everything you need. Would recommend it.

Friday night 17th June 2011, my husband and I went to see Matt Zarb play at 3 Nippers restaurant..It was a lovely night out, the music was great and the fixed menu was tasty.
Matt played from about 5.30pm to 9pm with only a few short breaks. His show was easy to listen to and he made it interesting by telling us about the individual songs.
The menu was good also, even though it was a fixed menu.
The only complaint we had of the night is that we were seated right next to the exit door, so everytime someone came in or out there was a gush of freezing cold air....
We will definitley go again maybe next time during the day and sit by the pool. Its wonderful to have such talented local musicians available in our area.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Australis Diamond Beach Resort and were extremely disappointed. The website showed photos of beautiful rooms but the reality of it was very different. If we hadn't paid upfront then we would have left within the first 5 minutes.

Outside
- The front door wouldn't lock properly from the outside so we had to use the side door
- The outdoor furniture was rusted

The Lounge Room
- The cottage we stayed in was supposed to be able to house 4 people but in the lounge room there was one 2 seater lounge, no coffee table, a TV which had a fuzzy signal

The Kitchen
- There was tea and coffee provided but no milk
- A table which should have been able to fit 4 people but if you pulled the table out from the wall then you would not have been able to get into the kitchen

The Bedroom
- The slats on the bed moved and banged loudly at the slightest movement
- The mattress was flimsy
- The bedside tables had gouges out of the top

The Bathroom
- There were not enough towels provided for 4 people
- The water pressure in the shower was appalling

As other recent reviewers have mentioned, I don't know where some of the unhappy reviewers have stayed, and to think their comments almost made me cancel, so glad I didn't. Found the resort to be excellent. Room was clean, extremely comfortably and the linen was of a high standard. Reception staff were friendly. We dined at the resort restaurant on Saturday night and were not disappointed. The pools in the resort looked great, and I'd love to return in the summer months. Resort backs on to a large unspoilt beach, bit rough for swimming, however the patroled beach of Black Head is a short drive away.
Lovely area to visit and would not hesitate to recommend this resort for a holiday - perfect family destination.

Having read some of the previous reviews, we we a little concerned about what to expect from our stay. My wife's company paid for 2 days as a 5 years of service reward and we paid for the other 2 days.

Overall, the resort and facilities were great, and the staff could not be more helpful!

We had a 2 bedroom apartment although it was fully detached from the surrounding apartments. Each bedroom was clean and neat although there was a bit of dust on the pictures and venetian blinds. The kitchen was well equipped and the Weber Q BBQ on the veranda was clean.

The bedrooms each had its own en-suite bathroom and the main bedroom en-suite included a spa (which the kids loved). The hot water was hot and strong, and a nice selection of toiletries was also included.

The lounge/dining/kitchen area had a TV which had the standard free-to-air channels, a number of Foxtel channels (Sport, Animal Kingdom, etc) as well as 3 dedicated movie channels including a kids movie channel with Up, Toy Story 3, Bolt and Tinkerbell showing. The weather was pretty poor for a couple of days so this was a bit of a lifesaver.

The resort pool was relatively small but really well designed and equipped. There was a shallow area for toddlers, a separate lap pool area with a bridge over the middle. There were also plenty of deck chairs and umbrellas although the weather was not good enough to allow us to take advantage. A second kids pool was next to the Kids Club which is free during school holidays and weekends.

The resort is right on the beach which had beautiful sand and the kids spent many hours making sand castles and collecting shells and rocks.

On the last night we went to the restaurant (3 Nippers) and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the menu as well as their welcoming attitude for children. Our kids got activity packs on arrival and had a quality spaghetti bolognese (so big we took the rest home in takeaway containers) followed by a free ice block for dessert. Our meals were generous, interesting and delicious, and the staff were attentive as well as accommodating of our kids.

Overall a great experience and we look forward to coming back during better weather.
