“Let down by a few issues”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We have stayed here a few years ago and it was somehwat better - then rooms were serviced and very well laden breakfast trays were delivered to the patio each morning which was an excellent start to the day. Unfortunately that is not the case now - now breakfast is not served; there is no daily service; toiletries dispensers in the bathroom were empty and broken. Only small tubes of toiletries for one use were provided for the three nights which is just not acceptable for the price paid.
I agreed with a past comment that the beds were not that great; the hob in the kitchen was rusty and looked nasty. However, large clean fridge; washing machine and dryer.
We were two couples and paid a total of $600 for three nights in two adjoining apartments.
Post-Easter the resort was very quiet and there were only 6 rooms seemingly occupied in the whole of the resort. On the last morning we asked if we could extend our check out by one hour (from 10 to 11 am) as the men wanted to play another round of golf. We had a somewhat curt reaction to this that the cleaners could not be kept waiting around an extra hour for us. I did not find this acceptable. The two golfers in our group paid over $60 for a round the morning of our departure - and indeed had spent over $200 between them on golf in the three night stay we had at the resort. As the resort was virtually empty, it would not have hurt them to let us stay another hour - the cleaners could have done the room the next day or at least it could have been offered that they would do the rooms after the other two, so we could get the extra hour.

Room Tip: Roons facing the golf course are quieter

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and we are sorry to hear that you were let down by a few issues. We try to make every guests stay a good one. We think our prices are competitive and these few days between long weekends were quite. We are sorry we could not have offered you a late check out on departure day. We try to accommodate all requests for late check out but in this instance we were unable. We did have a wedding checking into the resort the following day. We can provide breakfast baskets on request for a small fee. The rooms are not serviced motel rooms and we would have been happy to supply further amenities had the request been made to our staff. We hope you enjoy your travels.

What a find. we spent a week here over x'mas. Something for everyone. Golf and tennis if you so desire, a nice walking track from the resort along the coastline to Innes Park and 2 swimming pools. Fully fenced - great for children.
Rooms were spacious with a spa bath. Elliot heads is an 8 minute drive lots of sand and a tidal lagoon also great for the kids and some beach cricket/ footy. Resort is quiet and private.Had a fabulous time we'll be back.

Stayed December 2013, travelled with family

We had 6 rooms booked for our 5 day break over Christmas. We had them side by side in a separate block (rooms 23 - 28) and there was heaps of room outside the units to set up our tables and chairs undercover on the grass area - complete with Christmas lights of course! It's a fantastic place for families especially those with special needs children because it's fully fenced around the units and we really appreciated that. The playground and pool were close by, it was easy to keep an eye on the kids. They also played tennis and we even got to enjoy 9 holes on the golf course. The units have everything you need with the added bonus of SPACE. They're well set out with the kids bedroom down one end (with TV) and the main bed is situated in the living area with the flat screen TV and corner spa bath. It's clean, comfortable and the resort staff were always so friendly and helpful. We'd love to return in 2017 for our next Christmas get together!

We had the pleasure of attending a wedding here. Guests were able to stay and not have to travel far to get home. Room was very clean and large enough for 4 adults for 1 night. Grounds were lovely and a very peaceful atmosphere and a stunning backdrop of the beach.

There is also a good sized playground for the kids to burn some energy on as well as a tennis court and swimming pool.

The only drawback is that it is remote and a decent drive for a good coffee / takeaway shop. Staff are friendly and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Be sure to take your original booking documentation with you as there was a misunderstanding regardi...

Great place to stay for peace and quiet, golfing and for the children. Dont stay here if you wsnt restairants and nightlife close by.
The golf course is challenging and ver reasonably priced, costing $32 for a round of 18 and this includes your buggy.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom beach condo that had been refurbished great, bar fridge upstairs, saved the legs. Flat screen TV s, stereo, ipod/iphone docking station listen to own music great. Nothing cheap about this unit. Nothing like the photos on the web. Will remember to ask for room 34 next time. Golf was great. People were great. We are going back.
