We loved the Amarna. We stayed in a 1 bed apartment for 3 nights with our baby and couldn't have wished for a better place. The room itself is really well done, very modern with high quality finishes throughout. Great touches like the Miele coffee machine and deep bathtub make it feel really luxurious. We had a ground floor apartment with a deck that opened straight onto the pool. While it was perfect for us with a baby, the ground floor location did lack some privacy as people around the pool can see into the apartment. The pool itself was really lovely, and there was a massive spa too.
Excellent location - there is a staircase from the pool leading straight onto the beach. The beach was very kid-friendly, no waves and lovely clear water. It was a 10 minute walk to Nelson Bay town, either along a beach track or by road (don't take the beach road at night, there is absolutely no lighting!)
Breakfast is great, warm muffins and fresh fruit, yoghurt and muesli delivered to the door, with the days paper. Service was wonderful and understated, the staff were all very friendly and happy to help, but stayed out of the way of guests.
Compared with other places in the area, this was excellent value for money. We can't wait to return!
