Reviewed 27 February 2012

Horseshoe Bay is truly a beautiful part of Queensland, there are two beaches to choose from at this Resort so if it is windy at one beach you can go around to the other beach to the sheltered side of the Resort. The waters are warm and clear. They have older rooms that really need attention but are reasonably priced, or they have modern rooms in the 400 block. The restaurant is not open for breakfast but the resort has breakfast packs. I stay here on business and I have even brought my family here for a holiday I love it that much. There is NOT a lot here for children to do except play at the beach.

Reviewed 28 November 2011

We only stayed for one night here but the view from our room was absolutely lovely. We had a room overlooking Greys Bay and while this sheltered our balcony from the sea breezes it also made it very hot in the afternoon with the sun belting in. The only way to get the breeze is to open the main door. We found the air con a little small for the area so not really that cool in the room. It does have a fan as well and you need that going flat out. Next time I think a room overlooking Horseshoe Bay would be preferred. The rooms are quite big, we actually had an extra two single beds that we didn't need but even with those it was comfy. Bed was nice and comfortable. There is a lot of tables and chairs to sit on in the grounds. We had dinner on site but while the food was quite good, it was very overpriced in my opinion for what you received. We had been told the restaurant next door was very good but didn't realise that it was a chinese restaurant. Nice quiet area but an older style resort. All in all we enjoyed our stay. As Horseshoe Bay is about ten minutes drive to Bowen the resort also sells ice, icecreams, sunday papers,milk and soft drinks I think as well, so this is very helpful.

Room Tip: Try to get a sea breeze room.
