Has great facilities with huge heated pool, spa pool, well equipped gym, tennis courts, half court, squash, playgrounds, canoes barbecue areas etc. However one of the main ingredients for good accommodation was missing -comfortable bed and pillow. The bed and pillows were so hard they bruise your back. Rooms are a good size and kitchen has everything you would need. Supermarket and shops nearby.

Room Tip: All rooms are similar but 1300 block is away from the pool and tennis so is quieter

Stayed here for one week, with my daughter, mother and sister (a bit of a girls reunion), at the beginning of March and had the best time. The best assest this place offers is the staff...they were all fantastic, especially Dylan the "Activities Guy" who was just as fantastic with the...um! "middle aged"as he was with youngsters. The pool, gym , tennis courts were all fantastic, so as well as doing the usual "touristy" things save a bit of time for the in house activities. The resort is located on the beautiful Boambee Inlet which was amazing for canoeing and stand up paddle boarding as well as swimming. we also ate at the Indian restaurant at the resort and were not disappointed. So a big thumbs up from the four of us......and Dylan I will get my revenge on the tennis court on our next visit!!!

Room Tip: One overlooking the Inlet, very peaceful and beautiful.

Stayed here twenty years ago and we always wanted to return. Well we finally did, and it is as good as we remembered. We've been canooeing.tennising,snorkelling in the creek, swimming in the ocean every day. Lovelly views of the tidal creek and wildlife in the well maintained gardens. Great Indian restaurant with yummy curries. Hope it's not twenty years till our next visit.

It has taken me a few months to get around to this review, but the memory of a lovely week spent at the resort with my children is still strong. By far the great winner for my family was the beautiful pool, and its resident lizards! Our unit was upstairs, which was great, and backed onto the creek, so we could sit on the flyscreen enclosed balcony and enjoy the sounds of the water and the birdlife in the trees, without being eaten by mosquitos. We were easily able to slip the nearby supermarket, stock up and cook for ourselves. As well as a meal in the resort restaurant, which was delicious.

Some perks can be bad for you, like the taste for milkshakes and chips with gravy that my kids developed due to the convenience of the resort café, getting takeaway snacks whilst enjoying the pool and terrace. Overall the resort is clean, family friendly, provides parking albeit a bit tight, and I met many other guests who had barely left the resort during the stay due to the abundance of facilities. It is a nice distance from Coffs too, an easy 5-10 minute drive, but keeps you out of the tourist frenzy. Definitely a thumbs up!

Room Tip: Ask for a top level unit if you can get it, and backing onto the creek gives you a great view, and still close to everything.

I've visited this resort on several occasions for family reunions. All the rooms we've stayed in are clean, if a bit out of date, with views of the lagoon or the pool. It's a great location, with tons of national parks nearby for hiking and swimming.

The room I stayed in most recently was a bit stinky, but nothing a fan and open window couldn't fix. Loved having a washer and dryer available.

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms are on the bottom, so if you want the best views of the water opt for even numbered rooms.
