I stayed in a studio unit on ground floor unit 3. Very spacious room, cleaning standard was great. Loved the little extra touches. For eg zip lock bags, Salt & pepper shakers, serviettes & fly spray in the kitchen. Binoculars to look at the beautiful veiw. Room had a heater and a small fan and a dehumidifier. Love all the windows for the veiw and little courtyard outside room however I think for a better veiw without road in between you and if you want total privacy I would request an up stairs room although the ground floor unit was good for ease of access. The only thing I would add to make it perfect would be real milk instead of just the little UHT milks and If I was going to be REALLY fussy would have liked tissues in the bathroom. Overall great place to stay will definitely be back.

We got apartment 5 and it was so good we booked an extra night. It was spacious, clean and well maintained. The staff were really helpful. Town and cafes are in walking distance and the beach is just across the road for easy walking and a great view.

Room Tip: we had a top floor apartment with two bedrooms, spacious living area and a conservatory with views...

Waterfront apartments are a great place to staý. You can sit on the deck and watch the day go by. Very comfortable and relaxing. Very close to the main street of town and right across the road from the beach. Staff are very friendly and very accommodating. Value for money

We were caught in a cyclone while visiting the area. The Waterfront apartments, are right across from the beach and ocean. We lucked out and managed to get the penthouse suite, so our view was amazing. The facility is wonderful, full kitchen, gorgeous bathroom and great king bed, though the suite did have 2 bedrooms the second having 2 single beds.
If you want a hotel with a view, this is the one, walking distance to the main street, restaurants and such, but if you want to splash out go for the penthouse, it is worth is.

Room Tip: If you have a chance visit the "Lost Spring" thermal pools, a short walk from the apartmen...

Very comfortable unit on the beachfront, with large furnished glassed balcony on the front with large sliding doors that opened right up. Beautiful bathroom with separate spa bath and large shower. Had a small kitchen including microwave. Large comfortable bed with decent curtains so the sun didn't wake us up in the morning. Unfortunately we only stayed 1 night, wished we could've stayed longer. Loved the location. Would be perfect for a family to stay - homebody away from home. A laundry room was on site.

We had 4 adults stay in the 2 bedroom unit upstairs and it was awesome. We arrived late and the unit was open for us. Staff were friendly and helpful.
