“Unclean, Rude Management,”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

On arrival, the manager had a smart attitude which continues throughout the stay. On day of departure, he let himself into the apartment at 10.05am. He opened curtains, checked the fridge, went to my sons room who was getting dressed without consutation. I insisted he stop short of the door. Very rude. He took the keys and pushed them in my face. Luckily I parked outside of the apartments,(the keys are needed to depart the parking area.)
We had parked outside the apartments as the parking area is woeful and difficut to get out of.
The apartments are grimy and rusty. The utensils and cups were dirty. The curtains dirty and short of the windows. The aircon didnt work. The beds hard and pillows flat.Not good value for money.
There are many places to stay in Bargara. This one will never get my recommendation.

My weekend catch-up with family was well catered for with our 3-bedroom apartment. A short walk from Salt restaurant for breakfast and a short drive to our choice for dinner (we probably could have walked but chose not to in the dark). The apartment was clean and open with comfy beds and couches and a close distance to the beach. The heated pool was perfect for an afternoon swim, even though we visited in winter on a beautifully sunny weekend. We had ample parking with a two-bay car space. I'll be planning another visit soon.

Very close to the beach with a beautiful view from our apartment though not from the first one we were offered but the manager was quite happy to move us to one with a good view. The apartment was spacious and clean, we never found the way to the pool though we could see it and thought it a little too small for such a big complex. Itw as opposite the golf club which was excellent for meals.

While all comments are quite accurate, the post was made the day after we arrived when we were feeling very let down and disappointed. I would like to add some more information that might help balance the books a little. After being contacted a couple of times by management about our dissatisfaction regarding the cleanliness of the accommodation, we were finally offered one free night which was appreciated and welcomed. Also, after cleaning the place up to our own satisfaction, we really enjoyed the fabulous location, the beautiful views and spacious apartment and what I think was a good price. I would stay again if cleanliness was guaranteed.

Room Tip: Every room (not just bedrooms) in our 3 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor, had a view of the sea...

Good place, good price.

Stayed with friends over a 10 day period. Found the self contained rooms to be large and open. Facilities were great, nice little pool area. Found the manager to always approachable. The location is great being right across the road from the beach and gold course.....both got a work out in the ten days.

The rooms were clean and well presented and I thought we got great value for money.

Similar to the other reviews, this place is overpriced and my three bedroom unit was filthy.

The floors are mostly tiled and I had to resort to wearing socks to stop my feet getting too dirty.

When I went to make a sandwich I could see most of the cutlery wasn't really clean and they had food smears still on. Not very impressed.

If they actually had a manager on site after 5pm I would of complained directly and have them do something about it.

I was staying for work but if it was a personal stay I would of certainly had something direct to say.

Booked a quick 2 night stay hoping to relax on the balcony and enjoy the view. Ended up in a ground floor room with a view of the carpark and housing commission units across the paddock. The unit was in poor condition a homemade sponge rubber top on the master bed held in place by a fitted sheet, holes in walls and mould on curtains which were too small for the windows. Parking was poor and at no time did I see the managers in 2 days.
