We stayed here over Easter and overall had a really nice weekend, although we didn't spend a lot of time in the apartment. We were travelling with our one year old so the one bedroom apartment we stayed in was probably a bit too tight for what we needed. The bedroom door was only a sliding shutter-style door, and with only one TV in the apartment it didn't really leave us with too many options as to where to put the portacot up. Overall, the layout of the room didn't give us the privacy and ability to relax that we were hoping for. Not a problem if you're travelling as a couple, but something definitely worth considering if you're travelling with little ones!
The room was fairly plain but at least was well-equipped and clean... except for the rusty shower stall.
Our balcony was quite small but private. The biggest downer for us was that our views included a cow-filled paddock, a vacant block and a glimpse of the water in the distance. If you do decide to book here, definitely go for the ocean view over the park view if water views are what you want (an oversight on our part).
Not sure how it manages to rank #1 of 5 hotels in Bargara on tripadvisor, but I would definitely recommend checking out the resorts/hotels along The Esplanade first... at least you'll get beautiful, uninterrupted ocean-front views and you'll be walking distance to the shops, pub, etc.
