The new proprietors of smugglers are great and are doing an excellent job. As many of the units are privately owned it was unfortunate that the one we had during our stay was under par from standard. Paint of ceiling was peeling in many areas exposing the ceiling. The curtains were old and not particularly clean. The tracks worn so that the sheer curtains were hanging down. The 2nd tier of curtain was too close to covering the aircon unit which for me is not recommendable. Screen door to balcony not lockable and split. Otherwise it has all the other necessary ammenities that you would expect by a holiday stay. The unit we stayed in was no. 7. I hope the owner will come to the party as have other unit owners and renovate to a standard to which they would be prepare to live in if that was the case.

Loved listening to the waves crashing as your falling asleep. You are 5 minute drive to everything you need. The owners are lovely and are extremely helpful. Loved the BBQ/ pool area. Definitely staying again.

Property is well managed and good. We do not mind staying here again. The manager was helpful and friendly. The place is so close to the beach and you can hear the waves from the room. The main image (Aerial View) of the hotel is little deceiving but we happy with the place.

Stayed for a week. Had all the amenities and felt at home. Pool could do with some maintenance. Nice having a beach close by but full of seaweed so used the pool mainly. Got cramped at times when others were using it. Small pool.

Hi Tony Glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for providing this review. The pool experienced a lot of use with a large number of families staying over the Christmas period - maintenance on the pool is scheduled in the near future once the holiday period has finished. Thanks again and hope to see you again soon. Sue Smugglers on the Beach
