From the moment we arrived we were very happy. Room was very clean and modern. Great size and everything you needed to be comfortable. Staff were very friendly also. Would stay again and recommend to friends and family.

Thank you so much Chris for your personalised assistance in booking what was the perfect accommodation for some of my family to stay in when we attended a family wedding last weekend. Your customer service is 'top-notch' .. friendly, but efficient, right down to the allocation of enough car parking spaces!! Location was excellent, being close to the ceremony held in the Botanical Gardens and across the road to the Boat Harbour for the reception, with an extremely 'comfortable haven' in which to rest in between the events... particularly important for my ageing Mum. Unfortunately, in one night's stay, I did not get to experience all the unit's benefits, though the others did! Possibly the 2nd bedroom was a little small for 2 adults to share, but was certainly adequate, however the main bedroom was massive & could have easily housed a sitting chair also. Pillows were a tad on the hard side, but that usually comes down to personal preference...

The 2 bedroom 3rd floor apartment was fitted out superbly, with tasteful decor and a huge deck, overlooking the pool, with glimpses of the marina and across to the island. The quick dip we had in the pool on the morning of check- out was refreshing! Once again, thanks for making our experience at Akama part of a lovely time together as a family! It would be good to return one day for a longer getaway, when finance allows!!
Cannot make any comment on the children's activities and restaurant, but was impressed by the push bikes for hire!

We chose Akama solely on TA reviews and weren't disappointed with the 3 bedroom penthouse on the 6th floor, which was the ideal space for a long weekend (4 night) family gathering - 3 couples and one child. The views across the yacht harbour; the bay; and further out to Fraser Island were mesmerizing. Master bedroom very spacious with own large bathroom, and the other two bedrooms not so spacious and shared a smaller bathroom. Aircon a bit noisy but no complaints. Lounge area very large, and outdoor balcony also very large. Could have done with a larger table on the balcony maybe. Kitchen area adequate. At around $400/night we would have been happier not to have niggly extra charges for things such as child's bed ($15/night); converting 2 twins to a double ($10), but these things were mentioned on the website so our issue for not reading it all I guess.
Great idea to have the trolleys down in the car park for loading and unloading and straight into the lift. Waste chute a bit smelly when in corridors. Management staff and receptionist very helpful and friendly. We will return one day

Amazing amazing amazing...really not much more to say. Although I didn't swim in the pool it looked inviting. Room was very large with separate 'wings' for the bedrooms. Large amazing deck. The kitchen stocked everything you would need and was beautiful. Room was exceptionally clean & looked like it had never been slept in!

Hi ozeeGirl
Thanks for the great review. So glad you enjoyed your time with us.
Next time you visit us you will have to make sure you take a dip in the heated pool.
Whale Watch season starts late July so hopefully, you might get a chance to pay us another visit. Keep your eye on the deals!

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for two nights so we could visit Frazer Island. For the cost of $189:00 mid week we found it exceptional value for two couples.
Two bedrooms ,two bathrooms with direct access to the pool which we used when we arrived as we had been driving a long time.These apartments are LARGE and all the mod cons you need.Undercover locked parking as well
The only little things I could say is that the main bedroom with the ensuite is huge but the 2nd bedroom is quite a lot smaller. I would say it is more geared for a family rather than two couples but still when you only sleep in it you find it quite adequate. Another thing I found was the air conditioning that covers the two bedrooms and or the living area. It can only be set for the same temperature in both rooms which meant as the people in the main bedroom get very hot we had to sleep with a blanket. As I said just minor things but the location was fantastic for meals at the boat club and Chris was able to book our Frazer Island trip as well.
Would I recomend this to others, most certainly and value for money a great 2 night stay was had by all.
