Booked this before reading reviews - I was horrified on what was said. but the location suited my families sporting advent. Turned out to be pleasure LARGE, clean and did everything we wanted it to do. Will be back for next years cycling event. Loved the out door spar.

Appalling treatment from the staff. They didn't honour our reservation on booking.com. Left us sitting in the driveway on a Saturday afternoon with no place to stay. Noone eden cane to discuss the situation with us. DO NOT BOOK THIS ACCOMMODATION..

We booked and payed for the hotel weeks in advance. After spending the day at wet n wild myself and my friends arrived at Sailfish Cove at 4.30pm to check in. We called the number on the door and were told they couldn't find our booking. We gave them our booking reference and still no. She said she'll call her...

We hada 3 bedroom apartment backing onto the estuary/river. Stayed a week. There were table & chairs outside to enjoy the view & early morning rowers.. The accommodation itself was clean & tidy. Onsite Burger & Chips one night we had, was good. Our teen boys used the pool, thats always a "Treat" in itself especially when you have it...

Sailfish Cove is a gated community. I had the impression that most of the other people there were permanent residents, which made the experience a bit strange. The accommodation itself was clean enough, and the beds were comfortable. The sofa was badly stained and really should have been replaced. The kitchen was not well stocked, ie, there was one oven...

Washing machine top loader lid hit into dryer. Infested with ants. Hot upstairs no a/c only old fans. A/C downstairs did not respond to remote and had to...

Totally Disappointed!! We stayed here 2 years ago & thought it was wonderful, this time round we brought extras with us and talked up how great it was. I have never been so embarrassed & disgusted, I couldn't believe how the units had deteriorated & how run down they were in such a short time, if there weren't so many...

We only stayed at this complex because we were playing a tennis tournament nearby, but soon after arriving we found the whole apartment to be in a dilapidated state. There were cracks in the walls and holes in the walls. The walls were smeared in some splashes of some sort of liquids I'd hate to think about. The kitchen floor...
