Incredibly priced, we booked this accommodation due to Tripadvisor reviews. We were delighted. Huge, modern, fully equipped apartments. Washing machine, dryer, dishwasher and the best bed we've slept on since we left home -so good that I actually looked up the brand! We stayed for 3 nights but it's so comfortable it would be a great place to spend if...

We're a family of four with kids both under eight. We had a great time staying in the Akama Resort. We were offered a poolside apartment with direct access to the pool, which is heated and has an great adjoining spa. The kids played for hours, whilst we soaked up the sunshine. The standard of the apartment was excellent with...

We loved Akama, visited in winter so requested a light, sunny appartment. Arrived on a grey wet day but sunrise next mornig was stunning. We enjoyed our all day sunny balcony, serene aspect and the relaxation that comes from staying in spacious, fresh, well appointed, boutique style accommodation. Received useful advice on easily accessible eateries & activities. Staff were friendly...

This was by far the best apartment we stayed in during our current around Australia trip. Well appointed, bright and spacious. Great views from the fifth floor. Certainly ticks all the boxes, laundry, dishwasher, dining suite and comfortable couches. Great parking, lift and luggage trolley.

The apartment we had at the Akama resort was very bright and spacious and the kitchen well equipped. We had distant water views across the treetops to Frazer Island from our bedroom, sitting room and balcony. Breakfast on the balcony is a great way to start the day. It is a short walk to the marina and restaurants. My bed...

Reviewed 15 June 2013

We stayed at the Akama for one night. Everything is there and clean etc. However, the overall feeling is one of sterility, blandness and over-organisation. Bed and pillows not very comfortable, fair bit of noise from outside. Overall somewhat grim.

Our first impressions of Akama resort are very similar to that expressed by Margie K in her review. Ease of checking in (we had pre booked) and the beautiful open space feeling of the unit particularly with the folding doors to the balcony being wide open.
