Great service ! Before we even arrived, a text message had been sent to us that our room was ready. During check-in, the young lady from Malaysia was a real delight; very friendly and professional. We were so pleased with the Garden View Apartment that we were given as it was the closest to the pool and even had ocean views from the balcony. There was a separate air-conditioned unit in the Master bedroom and also in the open area where the other beds were. However, due to the 40 degree heat and humidity, the air-cond seemed not to function once the day progressed but it cooled down the apartment at night again. The apartment was serviced daily and the housekeeping crew were another nice bunch of people. What a fantastic location with the main beach just 100m away. Here, you could see the blue spotted ray, huge spangled Emperor (snapper) and under the floating platform, trevally is seen. And just around the corner at Paradise Beach, there were better corals and more fish to be seen. The main shopping area was also within walking distance with 3 restaurants, a bakery, a supermarket and other shops. The sand dune was just right next to the resort where most people went to view the sun setting. However, you could view the sunset basically anywhere with the ocean in sight. There was a public laundry area but with only 1 washing machine and 1 dryer. We did our laundry twice and thank goodness both times, nobody was using them. $1 coins required with $5 for the washing machine and $4 for the dryer. Detergent was provided. What a memorable 25th wedding anniversary we had ! Will love to come back here again.
Excellent, will be back for sure!
I am disappointed reading some of the negative reviews on this resort. Considering it’s location and facilities I am confident in giving it 5 stars. There surely cannot be many places in WA that you can have a World Heritage Reef not 50 meters from your door, but also every creature comfort you could want. A bar and restaurant in the resort liven things up for the better in my opinion as I am fed up with having no real entertainment or eating options when visiting the more ‘special’ locations in WA. As well as the ones at the resort, we also sampled Bills and Fins restaurants and Loved them both. There are way too many tourist sites and accommodation in WA that need a good lick of paint and this is not one of them. Prices are not cheap, I agree, but compared to other options I would say this was a bargain! The unit we had was on the ground floor overlooking the pool and was an awesome location. Try to get these units. There was one that had a BBQ outside though and I would try to avoid this one if you can as I wouldn’t want everyone cooking right outside my front door. Bottom line is that if you are used to international travel and stopping at Sheraton style 5 Star resorts and expect nothing less, then don’t bother travelling around WA. It’s bitterly annoying, especially given the prices but that’s just the way it is.
The "Fancier"budget accommodation in town
These self contained units offer all the comfort pleasures of a beach holiday such as clean towels and sheets, air conditioning, a bathroom and kitchen area and is just across the road from the beach and 50 metres walk to the town's lookout. Shared facilities include a swimming pool, sun beds, beach umbrella's for shade, BBQ's and lots of grassy outdoor space to sit and enjoy the views. The Shades Cafe/Bar is also on site if you want to pop in for a good meal or sunset sip.
Hard to beat
Absolute favourite of this trip around WA, hotel was fabulous, with amazing views of the beautiful Coral bay, room was clean and regularly serviced with everything we needed. Bar and restaurants on site were very good, good food at reasonable prices with entertainment thrown in too. Now an RAC resort and being upgraded to reflect their quality will definitely return
Quality place to stay
Couldn’t fault the place, it’s on the beach, staff were all happy, room was adequate and clean, the view is amazing Kids loved the pool The bottle shop was decent as was the pub, food was excellent, recommend the pork knuckle
