After a hard couple of months at work my partner and I decided to treat ourselves and our 6mo and 3yo to 3 nights of relaxation up at the bay. Tracey and Wayne greeted us on arrival and showed us around our apartment, which was incredibly spacious and well equipped. We stayed in apartment 201. It has its own private...

Stayed here for 5 nights and can not fault it. Fabulous very well equipped, comfortable apartment over looking a beautiful beach. Wayne and Tracy and the whole team are lovely and nothing is too much trouble for them. Great restaurants, supermarkets etc very close and the best place to relax and unwind.

Brilliant place to stay views from the apartments are breathtaking. The apartment was modern very clean, with all the conveniences you would expect from a place like the Armana A great place to get away from the rat race and chill out without having loud noisy neighbours. I would recommend the Armana resort to any couple who want luxury and...

We were looking for a comfortable quite place to stay for a few days. The Armana provided this. The quality of the building, its fittings and facilities are all of exceptionally high quality. This is matched by the attention to cleaning and the courtesy of the managers.

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Amarna Resort and we have loved it both times. This time we flew into Newcastle, picked up a hire car and 30 minutes later we arrived. Easy. The room is very comfortable and we just step outside our door and there's the beautiful pool. Down a few steps and...

A family stay last school holidays. Views and apartment was outstanding . What lets this resort down is the feeling that your constantly being watched. We had friends visit , not to stay or use the facilities but a drink in out unit. They were greeted with hostility and asked to vacate the property. The owner then let herself into...

What happens in the first few minutes often sets the tone for the whole stay. This was certainly our experience. We arrived well before the check in time, after a good run to Nelson Bay. Unfortunately, we could have access because the suite was still being cleaned after the last guests - we found out later that the cleaning is...

Apartment is 5 star Amenities are 5 star Location is 5 star but where Amarna falls down is its stiff management. Noise not permitted. High surveillance. It should be listed as an old folks home. My granny would love it. Recommend for over 70's or boring farts.

Our family came to Amarna not knowing what to expect. On entering apartment 302 we immediately thought we had died and gone to heaven. The quality of the interior of the apartment is world class. All 3 generations could relax in peace and enjoy eachother's company without being distracted, enjoying the breath-taking view of Nelson's Bay. I would highly recommend...

Wow, what a place only 3 hours from Sydney. We travelled here with a family of 6. Huge Appartments with great appliances. The view over Port Stephens is amazing. It's a great location, right on Duchmans Beach. Excellent walking track towards town and the opposite way towards Soldiers Point. We saw Koalas in the trees along the walking track and...
