What a great place for a getaway. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment and were very pleased with the location and amenities nearby - as well as the apartment - fantastic for the price. Just as good if not better than Sails across the road (without the view).
Anne was a lovely lady at reception who is great to work with. Couple of pros and cons of this place.
Close to beach
Close to food and shops
Clean apartments - nice beds
Not allowed on balcony after 10pm! Come on guys...
Pool wasn't heated as advertised
Spa in pool is just a cold water bath no jets
one elevator for whole complex - long waits especially when going down to basement car park
Thin walls - extremely thin walls. Any bedroom antics can be heard by all LOL
no air con in rooms only in master room (i was staying in a cheaper room though - i think deluxe rooms have aircon)
My honest opinion - if you want to party, dont come to forster. Its quiet. After 10pm its like a nursing home. Good for relaxation and families.
Get a room on floors 5 and up so you can see the ocean. We stayed on level 3 and blocked by sails apartments.
Next time i will get the penthouse as it has a jacuzzi on the balcony....however the no party policy is pretty extreme so dont think you can make any noise LOL pretty crap but thats forster, not surfers paradise i suppose.
We did not get our room serviced for 3 nights...not sure why but thats ok. Also, asked for more toilet paper and im not sure if you are supposed to buy it from them but we got a bad vibe for asking LOL
