Spent 6 nights here which is about 4 too many..The tents and villas are close together and the resort was fairly busy so that there is noise and not much privacy from your neighbours.The weather was devine but the one pool which is in the restaurant/bar area was small and the 8 cramped lounges were generally unavailable,
Once the crowd diminished midweek, we felt a touch of the Eco feeling that lured us here with less chatter and noise and much more relaxing.
We swam in the ocean on high tide, which was great , unswimable on the very low tides though.
We loved the hammocks on the beach, but would have liked the occasional offering of cool drinks from the nearby bar
The biggest disappointment was the fixed menu, which hadn't changed in 2 months ,according to one of the staff and we did try everything on it at least once (except the emu)There was a inconsistency of quality and the barramundi, which we had between us on 3 occasions was cold once, overcooked once and only acceptable the first time, the side dishes were a daily lottery on whether they were ok as well. The breakfasts and lunches were cooked generally good,,but again the lack of variety was nowhere to be seen..and for the money you pay I would have expected better..
The staff was great, all very friendly and helpful..We were looking forward to the yoga and meditation classes offered in the brochures , but that wasn't available when we were there.
We did do some of the walks available and experienced a paid fishing trip to Jacks Creek nearby but that was average. On the low tides you can do good walks along the interesting coastline , the birdlife is spectacular.
Overall a average experience , wouldn't do it again but probably worth a visit
