Very clean and well appointed. We shared the weekend with another couple and were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment. There is a supermarket near by and the beach is across the road. We had a pool view apartment on the ground floor which had a very nice balcony and view of the pool area. The pool is heated and... More

It's been a couple of years since we last went & whilst no major renos have been done the reef is perfect for a family break The apartment was clean, everything you want, the pool brilliant only negative was the free wifi isn't strong enough! Too slow but the weather was shocking so perhaps that caused it! We will be... More

Stayed here for a week on business. Fantastic accommodation with very pleasant owners. Certainly stay there again. Apartments are not serviced for duration of stay which means you have that feel of stay at home freedom without having to worry about cleaners going through the place. Right on the waterfront with easy walking distance to The Mount Township

Stayed for 2x nights to attend a wedding. The management was friendly and helpful from the start, always smiling and friendly and happy to assist. We stayed in a poolside apartment, which was huge (much bigger than expected). Full kitchen facilities were great (enough space for the bride to put together her cake), and having two bathrooms was great. Also... More

Excellent apartment with a lovely pool, had a fantastic time here with our 5 year old. Was very nice to sit in the hot pool in the evenings. Only thing I would say would be in regards to the heating in the room. It was very cold when we were there and we had two small heaters to heat a... More

Had a lovely 2 night stay with children and grandparents. Plenty of room for everyone. Great having two bathrooms. Cooked in - great kitchen layout. Loved the pool and spa (although the salt water was hard on eyes - recommend goggles if swimming for a while). Would happily stay again.

Thank you for staying with us, and for your review suzannef370. Yes, the apartments are a very generous size aren't they, which does make it easy for three generations to have fun together!

The location was amazing ! The suite was very roomy. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Being across from the beach was awesome, we sat on the patio and listened to the waves. We took a couple long walks on the beach.
