We stayed for a friends wedding, which was also held at the resort. I won't lie, it was out of my price range BUT I booked early, was able to pay off the accommodation weekly which made it possible. When we got there it was stunningly beautiful. I took my sons so we could have a mini holiday and it was perfect. The house was flawless, the grounds just beautiful and the beach- just amazing. Walking the beach at sunset, waking early for a swim - there was even a whale!!!! I kid you not! Just a perfect, perfect venue. I hope one day we can go back because although it was only two days, my boys and I drove back to Perth really feeling like we had had a full holiday experience. THANK YOU!

We came from Saudi Arabia to Perth then we decided to go out of Perth in the weekend, we loved the resort and it's facilities. Everything was 5 stars we couldn't ask for more, staff were nice and greet you with smile, fast check in and check out as well, big clean apartment beach view with private pool and the beach was so nice for children no waves and crystal clear water. Only the internet was not working properly and is not free I paid $10 a night but couldn't sign in very weak signal, other that that this resort is heaven and I recommend it especially for families.

Thank you Salehaiiaf for taking the time to wrote your review and very pleased you enjoyed your time with us. Our resort is very family friendly and yes the calm waters of Geographe Bay are very ideal for small children. You will be pleased to know we have now fixed our internet problem so next visit your wifi access should not be an issue.

This was the second year that our family of 4 and our extended family (6 adults in total), 6 children (2 under 3 years) stayed at Aqua Resort. This year we upgraded to Grove Beach House with a pool. What a worthwhile investment. We stayed for 5 nights and had a blast. It is the perfect location for children, but if you have children under 2 be aware that the individual properties don't have fences so kids may take a walk next door. The pool is safe and heated and ultimately it is a great high end family venue.

We will have to upgrade next year as more kids are on the way and it will be too tight but that just gives us an excuse to try the larger houses.

Hi Ash_Dom Thank you for taking the time to review. Our houses are specifically designed and are spacious enough to be shared by several families. Sharing is always more fun and cost effective. You are going to love moving up the our double story Bay House for your next holiday. Balcony with ocean views, heated plunge pool on the lower deck, grassed area for the kids and with 5 bedroom there will be room for everyone. See you then.

I would strongly suggest that this Resort is not for young people as a group of us stayed for the weekend and were given our first warning for eviction at precisely 9.20pm as a noise complaint was filed for the radio we had playing. It states in the guest file provided in the room that quiet time is 10.00pm on wards. We also booked an apartment that had a private plunge pool, be aware that you are NOT allowed to use this pool after sunset! This was very disappointing as it was a very hot weekend and we couldn't enjoy a night dip. Loved all the facilities at the resort just a disapointment that we couldnt enjoy ourselves sitting outside chatting listening to some music playing.

Hi Jacinta B.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It is a requirement from the City of Busselton
that no swimming after sunset is permitted in any of our pools. We agree that it seems unfair especially on hot nights.

Our Strata company also has by-laws set in relation to noise and you are correct that 10pm on wards is our quiet time. Should we receive a complaint about noise at any time we will investigate and if thought fit ask that the noise be reduced to an acceptable level. I recall asking you to do this and thank you for doing so.

We are glad that you enjoyed all our facilities.

Kind regards

Grant

We arrived early that morning in Perth (from Europe), drove to Busselton and we already announced a few times (via e-mail) that we would arrive early and that we would be very pleased if our accommodation could be available a bit earlier (before the check-in time of 2PM). I believe we arrived at Busselton sometime between noon and 1PM. The ladies at reception (4 of them) were very busy with ... frankly I don't know ... and it took them 1 or 2 minutes before they even greeted me. They even seemed a bit annoyed I was already disturbing them before 2PM! And without even checking any paper work or identifying who I was (only by looking at the time) I was told my house "naturally" was not available yet and I should return after 2PM. Being a bit tired from the flight and drive I didn't want to start an argument so we left for the town and the jetty (nice!).

Around 4PM we returned and our house was available. Although I'm not sure of course but the resort seemed pretty quiet that day and it wasn't very likely our house was booked the night before we arrived. So no need for not granting us early access (1 or 2 hours!) to our house. But anyway.

The house was very spacious, clean, modern interior, all facilities present and the grounds of the resort are also very nice. A great pool (weather was a bit chilly so we didn't use the pool) and next to the beach.

So just spend some time on the customer experience at reception and the place is absolutely great!

Hi Edgar-NL. Thank you for your review and apologies your first impressions at reception were not so welcoming. Things can get a very hectic during our peak season. Especially for our housekeeping department. Having guests arrive before 2pm arrival can put them under enormous pressure, which is something we try to avoid as we consider our housekeepers are a vital part to the running of our resort. I am pleased the rest of your stay was enjoyable and I have know doubt you enjoyed our beautiful part of the world.

Just stayed there for three night mini-break. There was just the two of us. The house was very generously appointed and extremely comfortable. It was also surprisingly large, even with two of the bedrooms locked off.

Very good kitchen and laundry facilities. Extremely well designed with quality treatments.

Fantastic pool that you can actually swim as opposed to splash around in.

Lovely back patio and native garden which provided ample shade.

A real step-up from the adjacent accommodation.

Good model barbie, which had a sink attached to the water with an overhead light.

Minor grips :
i) towels were smallish and rather well worn
ii) could really do with a water cooler or bottles and towels in the gym.

Otherwise would highly recommend.

Room Tip: I suspect all the 'houses' are much the same. The ones on the beachfront have a small plun...

Aqua Busselton is our favourite place to stay in this lovely resort town. This is our third time staying at Aqua and we can't wait for our next! Both the beach and the grove houses are lovely with opulent bedrooms, generous living spaces and always fastidiously clean. The 28 degree private plunge pool is a real perk! On the cost side, a bit expensive for a couple (although WELL worth it if you want to treat yourself), but if you can fill up a house it's about $60 each per night for astonishing luxury accommodation - can fully recommend if you're down in Busso with mates/family for a sporting event or otherwise.

By far the best place to stay in Busso, I like to complain but I can't think of anything bad to say (apart from the fact that the "sauna" would really be more properly characterised as a steam room - minor quibble!). Thanks Grant and Cathy!

Room Tip: All rooms are epic
