“Wish I could live in the resort it was beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

The Location and the price and the activities was perfect.
From the spa to the pool, to the ultra clean and big houses is more than expected.
Owners are lovely people and I would recommend it to anyone needing to stay in busselton.

Arrived just after 5 pm on a Sunday. With the sky dark, we missed the sign of the resort as it was covered by trees. The reception is closed (please note the opening hours) but there was a sign for us to go to our villa.

The chalet is clean but the whole property is dim as the lights were not bright enough. We realised we need wifi coupons to get online. The coupons have access codes which give you 250mb or 24 hours whichever is reached first. As you would imagine, without wifi, we were quite upset. The day was still very young at 5 plus and no internet. The staff could have left some coupons in the villa with the key.

The chalet is good for a family of 4 - full kitchen, washing machine and dryer, dish washer, oven, fridge. It's a double level unit so 2 persons can sleep upstairs with the master bedroom downstairs.

Some chalets do not provide washing powder and dish washing powder so you have to purchase separately at the reception. Thankfully ours does. It was good to buy in raw food and cook like back home.

The tv had many channels so we occupied our evening hours by watching movies. that was the saving grace.

The place is a good gateway to Margaret River as it is only a 30-45 min drive away.

Cons - only 1 car park lot per chalet. There is only 1 mirror and 1 toilet. It was good that there was only 2 of us but still we have to squeeze ourselves around the basin (because of 1 mirror) in the tight toilet as the lady needed time to make up while the man used the basin and shower.

There is a tennis court but have to pay to rent the racket and balls.

We have to clean after ourselves as the maid comes once every 7 days. Thankfully there is a dishwasher but it also means your towels stay with you through your stay till the maid comes.

Wifi - controlled via coupons. 250 mb is not huge at all and you could imagine my annoyance when the access stops after 1.5 segment of a movie. Keying in another coupon means reloading the entire segment which took up some of the allowance under the new coupon. It's really annoying. Well if the wifi is meant to be free, why the need to key in a coupon for every 250mb?? Grab a bunch of coupons when the reception is opened!!!

Busselton is a very quiet residential town. The supermarts close at 6 pm and only a small IGA opens till 8 pm on a Sunday. At least that allowed us to make dinner on the first night!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for Amalfi Resort.
I am glad that you found the villas clean and that the accommodation is good for families and well placed for accessing the region. These are all things that we take great pride in.
I am sorry that the lights were not bright enough for you. Arriving in the early evening is a difficult time as it is not yet dark enough for the lights to shine brightly. We were also having difficulties with some of the lights not working properly but this has now been rectified.
Normally Wi-Fi vouchers are left with your key for late arrivals and I do apologies if this wasn't the case. I will remind all staff to make sure this is not missed.
All Villas are provided with washing powder and dishwasher powder.
The tennis courts are free to use if you have your own equipment but we do charge if you need to hire the equipment to cover replacing it.
The villas are fully self contained and self catering. They are serviced every 7 days for those guest staying more that 7 days and this is stated on your confirmation letter. For shorter stays towels can be replaced through reception, for a small fee, or every villa has a washing machine and dryer if you would prefer to wash them yourself.
There is one parking bay per villa however there are extra bays scattered throughout the resort and plenty of street parking for extra vehicles.
Free Wi-Fi is a feature of our resort and not many places in Busselton provide this service free of charge. Our service provider controls the vouchers and although we allow guests to have as many vouchers as they require if everyone is down loading large amounts of data at once it does slow down the system and make it harder for everyone to access.
Kind Regards Cheryl and Rod Managers

Nice villa with full kitchen and laundry facilities. The villa is about 150m to the beach. The place is very near to Busselton town centre where various type of food easily available. There is even supermarkets nearby where we can easily get our groceries. The staff is friendly and even recommended the restaurants in town centre for us to try. We tried the thai restaurant and it's good and price reasonable. There is free wifi but it's slow. The laundry, bathroom and toilet are within a shared room. It's not good if you have a big family as each person has to wait for his/her turn to bath. It's will be wonderful if the bathroom got a separate door and the toilet got a latch to lock it though it's already got a sliding door.

Hello Alfred - thank you so much for your review! It sounds like you had a great time here with your family! We really enjoyed hosting you :) Thank you for all your lovely comments. Next time you visit - why not try one of our 3 bedroom/2 bathroom villas! You might find that more suitable for your needs! We also have some villas with separate toilet doors in the bathroom as part of our constant refurbishment needs, as suggested by previous guests! Thanks again and we hope to see you on your next trip!

Stayed there for a long weekend and enjoyed our stay. It was quiet being that it is autumn and abit cooler. Played tennis and the staff were nice in the contact we had with them.
The villa are nice- beds comfy but I do think the bathrooms need abit of updating. The kitchens have been done so I'm guessing it's only time before the bathrooms are next?

A pleasant and affordable and enjoyable stay

Hi Sinnys,
Thanks for taking the time to write a review! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us down here at Busselton. Thanks for the great comments about the resort and staff. Yes - you are correct! Amalfi Resort is constantly upgrading and refurbishing individual villas. It is a lengthy process and takes time as you could imagine, but we do endeavour to keep all our villas looking modern and fresh. We hope to see you again in the near future!

A nice little resort with everything you need. Tennis Court, Spa and Pool were great. A Few BBQ's around the resort for guest use. Our Poolside Villa was spacious and perfect for our family. Having Foxtel meant Footy for the boys (an added bonus). Free WIFI And close to the Busselton City Centre.. Busselton Jetty is also down the road. Will definitely stay at Amalfi next time we are in Busselton.

We were two couples & we stayed for two nights for the ironman. Good communication & easy booking via the website. The unit was clean & well equipped, with plenty of room for four people. There was one double & two single beds, which I found comfy. There was wifi & foxtel which was handy. The only thing we could have done with was another car space but we were able to park on the road so wasn't a problem. Overall a plesent easy stay.

A great place for a group of friends to stay, affordable and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Only a short drive to the Centre of Busselton. The Deluxe Villa was Great and fitted 7 adults in it very comfortable. Will definitely be staying here again.
