          We stay here every year, and know what to expect (we're not blind to the fact its no Ritz). Has suited our family fine over the years. Would love to see more dining options in the area but that not a fault of the resort.

          Lots of things to do only a few minutes away, very well set and amazing views from your room. There are several restaurants and cafes centred near the apartments and also lots of things to do like jet skiing and snorkelling

          Thanks for looking into that Dawn! We did ask on 2 occasions for another set of keys and were turned down each time. We had 2 cars out at a time and one of us wanted to stay back at the unit so as you can see - it was a real nightmare for one lot trying to get back into the complex

          We had the same problem as I wanted to go shopping at the Marina and my husband wanted to go visit a sick friend. Result I couldn't go shopping. There are many reasons why I could not recommend this establishment.
