“Not a resort but very clean & comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2009

Let's get one thing straight - this is not a 'resort', but rather, an apartment complex with secure undercover parking, tennis court and two swimming pools. Some apartments are owner occupied and the others are holiday rentals. It is new and clean but, it must be said, rather charmless. Complex is staffed daily by one person in reception (who is also 'on-call' overnight). The location is great - on the narrow 'peninsula' bordered by the lake on one side and beach on the other. A monthly sea-side market is held in park across the road. 5 minute walk into town & therefore generally very quiet. We stayed in a 2 bedroom 'ocean view' apartment on 1st floor, which had floor to ceiling windows in lounge and one of the bedrooms - with lovely sweeping views of park below and some SLIGHT ocean views (which you could hear at night). Enormous balcony. We got a reasonable deal paying about $150/night, unlike other reviewer. The apartment was fully self-contained: big kitchen, comfortable lounge, 2 bathrooms (one with bath), and laundry (washing machine & dryer). Staff attentive to our concerns one night re: some roudy guests (but neighbouring noise should not be a problem if they keep their balcony doors shut - bc they are sound-proof). The negatives: reverse cycle air-con/heater in lounge only, pillows too 'puffy', 'ocean views' limited from 1st floor, kitchen sink has partial splash-back so water often sprays everywhere, and our DVD player not working. Good place to stay if you want something new, clean, mostly quiet, close to beach and very secure.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2009

Stayed for 8 days with my wife and 2 young Children in a 3 Bedroom lakefront townhouse. Townhouse was spacious and modern but at $3.5k for the week it was very expensive compared to other local offerings. For the extra money one would have expected a high standard in the details and service but the level of service was very poor. The Townhouse was only air conditioned downstairs leaving the hot upstairs bedrooms without climate control. The communal swimming pool was simply FREEZING with no heating evident and even on warm days was so cold as to be unusable. Evidence of severe cost cutting was everywhere and we hardly saw a staff member the week we stayed. Coast is very expensive and for that you get a modern complex in a good location but little else. I would avoid it in the future.
