I stayed for two nights in June 2014 with my elderly aunt (aged in her early 70s). We had a two bedroom villa which was just perfect - luxurious but unpretentious. The bathroom was superb - one of the nicest hotel bathrooms I have ever seen, and the bath itself was deep and long and very comfortable. We had dinner the first night in the restaurant at Tamarind, and breakfast both mornings, and the staff coped easily with our food preferences (some dislikes, some intolerances). The second night (a Monday night) we had dinner at the Long Apron restaurant at Spicers Clovelly Estate, where the service from Courtney was the best we've experienced anywhere in Queensland. We would both return in a flash. My only issue was that it was a bit of a challenge for my aunt to walk from our cabin to the restaurant and back in the dark - there was some lighting along the road but if I hadn't had a torch it would have been tricky.
