The beds were very comfortable and clean. The unit was well appointed but some maintenance needs doing. The grounds were totally lacking in care and attention. The pool was cloudy and the games room could do with a complete overhaul.

Thanks for Staying at the resort. I appreciate your feed back. As discovered on arrival one of the sliding flyscreen doors have new wheels my apologies, its being repaired today. We are working continuously on the grounds and due to the large amount of rain it has grown incredible quickly in the last 3 weeks. We have some very difficult weeds that we have just finished the last patch of that needed to removed while the soil was wet. This particular weed would have had hundreds of hours thrown at it to get it under control without chemical. The resort and the cabana were all built in 1985 as a wheel chair resort and hence many things are not maybe as one would build them today. The cabana has had quite a few clean ups but of course we can still see more, and to boot we had a local group of bees wanting to nest in the apex, which drops waxes on our newly refurbished pool table. I am sure we do better next time.

Our stay here was wonderful from the very beginning. Phil was so helpful, he even walked us to our cabin instead of just giving us directions which does not often happen these days. Phil also called us the morning after we checked in to see if he could provide us with any advice on activities we could do while in Byron and have us good restaurant advise. Other reviews said that the place was a little run down but I did not think that at all, the cabins were exactly what I would have expected from a rainforest resort, they blended in instead of sticking out like most modern architecture and had all the basics you required. The walk to the beach was lovely, the dog really enjoyed it. The surf can be a bit rough so it you are looking for a good place to take your dog and have a swim the Ballina spit was excellent half hour trip south . The pool was also great to relax around after a busy morning and it was the perfect temperature. This place is perfect if you want to experience Byron but want to be a little removed from the hustle and bustle of a tourist town. Conveniently 5 minute down the road is a small supermarket, delicious Indian and excellent pies at the bakery. Overall a great stay !!

This property is a very nice respite tucked away in the rainforest. It is extremely quiet away from the hustle of byron but only a few min out of town (too far to walk but close to suffolk park). The facility is older, but the cabins are clean, the property is clean, linens and beds are comfortable, and it is PET FRIENDLY. This is a HUGE selling point for me. There are very few truly pet friendly places to stay, nice big screened in porch. Very modern and updated pool with lovely night lighting and heated. Short but a little confusing forest walk to the beach (signs would be good?). The manager is extremely friendly and helpful, provided excelling dining suggestions, and easy check in/out at our convenience. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

Lovely 15 minute walk to amazing beach, nice pool, internet spasmodic but grateful to have to book next destination. Netting against insects not great so I’d bring camping coil on next visit. Friendly & not too big like other places but had TT & pool table & clean pool. Etc Yes special & worth trying

Welcoming host

Pros: The cute cabins and the whole relaxed vibe of the place, and the bush turkeys!
Philip sent an email to say "Hi" after my plan arrived and I was on my way to the resort. He asked how I was getting there, and sent suggestions for a good route. He told me my cabin number, and that it was all ready for me, with the heater going. When I arrived, I went to say Hi, as I was a bit later than expected - got a bit lost on the way! - and he made sure I was settled in with plenty of ideas of what to do and where to go. It was a lovely, laid back environment in which to relax
