Reviewed 3 December 2013

I stayed at Mariner Bay with 5 other girls for Schoolies this year. We had an amazing time, it was so much fun. The apartment was really big and had everything we needed including 2 bathrooms to get ready in :-) The staff were great and put on a free BBQ for us on Sunday afternoon and the pool was heated. The 2 night managers were really good and we felt safe with them being there. Red Frogs even came and cooked us pancakes one morning after an amazing beach party. My younger sister is staying here next year for schoolies and is so excited after telling her all about it. Thank you for making our end of school trip so awesome!!

Me and few friends stayed for a weekend and had a great time! Great location, only 10 minute walk to the town, friendly staff and decent size unit. Loved the big outdoor area which is where we spent the majority of our time in the afternoon and the pool was only a skip, jump and hop away. Would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

Thank you for your great review. We are glad you had a good break with your mates – our 3 Bedroom Apartments are a good size and can comfortably fit 6 people for a good catch-up and break away from the rat race. We look forward to seeing you back at Mariner Bay Apartments again next time you stay in Byron.

The Mariner Bay apartments were really good for a family because it was walking distance into town and the beach and the pool was great for the kids after we'd spent the morning on the beach. Its a shame there is no direct access to the beach from the road behind.
A second TV in one of the bedrooms might be good in the future so the kids can watch something separate to the adults, but apart from that the apartment had everything we needed! Even a hairdryer.

Thank you for such a great review and for taking the time to post on TripAdvisor. The apartments are great for a family getaway as they are fully self-contained so have everything you need. We will look into your idea about having a second TV in the apartments. We look forward to seeing you back at Mariner Bay next time you come and holiday in Byron.

We've stayed at Mariner Bay Apartments three times. Holidaying with teenagers, we love the two level, three bedroom/two bathrooms apartment option at the rear of the property. Our most recent stay was in Unit 13 which is really well aspected and furnished (two patios) along with a well equipped kitchen. Beds are firmer than our preference but ok for a holiday stay. Lots of pillows and plenty of spare blankets. Undercover parking is excellent and easily accessed and the grounds are kept immaculate. We like the location and enjoyed hearing the sound of the waves at night. We also experienced great service from the Managers during our stay.

Hi Cathy, What a great review, thank you. The 3 bedroom apartments are spacious enough for a family with teenagers – plenty of room for everyone, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Apartment 13 is in a great position with glimpses of the sea from the balcony – nothing better then falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. We look forward to seeing you next time you come to Byron Bay.

We went to Byron recently for family holiday - we stayed in unit 4. It was spacious and roomy. We paid extra for a roll away bed which was so hard that my daughter couldn't even sleep on it preferring to sleep on the lounge. Apart from that the location was great and easy to get to the main hub in Byron. We would certainly use this apartment again for a short stay.

Room Tip: Front room was fine as the bedroom window had double glazing.

Thank you for your review, we are glad you had a nice weekend away in Byron. The rollaway you had is a deluxe version with a firm mattress which suits most people so I am sorry your daughter found it too hard to sleep on. Our 3 Bedroom Apartments sleep 6 people and has 2 queen beds and 2 single beds so maybe that would be better suited next time for your family. We hope you come and stay at Mariner Bay Apartments again soon.

We stayed in unit 5: Great location away from noise of city centre but close enough to walk to shops & restaurants and beach.

Only downside was that the we found the beds too hard which could easily be rectified by adding foam overlay.

Otherwise we would definitely go back.

I went down to Byron Bay recently with a group of friends. We were after somewhere with a relaxed atmosphere and close to the beach and shops, this is exactly what we found in Mariner Bay Apartments. We hired a 3 bedroom and 2 bedroom for 3 nights, the apartments were beautifully furnished, and kitchen supplies and utensils were abundant, this is something I certainly value for a weekend away and when cooking your own meals. Would certainly recommend!
