Magic location of complex right on the waterfront. You could sleep with the doors open & hear the waves. Bedrooms had no screens to keep out insects. A concern re insects and security. Even in rooms above ground level you had no security as balcony was only divided from neighbouring rooms by a 3 foot high glass panel. Sitting on the balcony in the morning you could see the people from the room next to you reflected in the glass balcony rail. We had a coral sea room (Room 215) with largish balcony which was lovely with a day bed, 2 chairs and table to sit at. The balcony and motel room are suffering from the ocean climate & the need for ongoing maintenance. Timber on balcony needs treatment to stop it rotting, bolts/screws on day bed are all rusting & timber swelling. In bedroom & bathroom paint was bubbling and cracked on the ceiling & door frame in the bathroom was bubbling & rusty. You are paying a lot of money ($269 for 1 night) for a small motel room that looks stylish for a photo but is in need of maintenance. The bed was really good - firm and not saggy in the middle. There was a foam flip out divan in the bedroom that was a waste of time as it was too low to sit on. This cheapened the entire room & left only 1 kitchen chair to sit on. 2nd person had to sit on the bed. (Raining on and off when we stayed so sitting on the balcony in the evening was not an option. Pools weren't heated. 1 night stay was ok for experience & location. Easy walk to village & dining options

It was the strangest room layout I have ever experienced I booked for 4 people, there was no where to sit, there were no taps in the small kitchenette, to boil the jug you had to do it in the bathroom, there were no wardrobes and no privacy for the people sleeping in the double bed. But the beds were comfortable and the shower water pressure and water temperature was great.
