We stayed here over the Easter long weekend. The hotel is in a great location being directly visable and accessible when you exit the ferry terminal. It is a 50 meter walk if that across the car park to Peppers reception.
The room was lovely with a beautiful view. The resort has two swimming pools with one being a very large lagoon pool which was lovely. Being close to the ferry terminal, it was easy to catch a bus around the island as this is where the main stop is for people arriving/leaving the island.
Getting around the island is easy on a day pass. Make sure you ask for a 'adult daily', this will allow you to get on and off the bus all day without having to buy a ticket for each trip.
We recommend the Forts Walk where we saw a Koala in the wild, ha ha, which was nice. The view from the top of the Forts is great. Horseshoe bay has markets on a Sunday and has a number of restaurants/bars. I would recommend Noodies for lunch or dinner, yum. Also the Koala Sanctuary at the Bugalow Bay Backpackers was a great hands on afternoon with animals! You get to hold a number of animals with the entrance price, it is additional to hold a Koala. Good little bar there are Indian restaurant but you must book if you want to eat at Bombay Nights.
Breakfast was included and was buffet style, very nice. Also it was great for dinner. If you are eating and it is windy, don’t let them put you outside, insist on indoor seat or go somewhere else.
Overall we thought Peppers was in a great location and very nice.
