Thank you for taking the time to review Seashells! We will take your advice on board. We're glad that you had a great family holiday!

Pros: Facilities were good and people were friendly.
Cons: Update units aesthetically and refresh.
Location: Location is a bit remote from Forster but the area is growing so activities will get closer.
Location and general feel of complex very good. Facilities excellent for children and adults. Units were clean and tidy and fitted out well. Beds were very comfortable. Furnishings could be updated and a coat of paint would definitely lift the appearance. Dishwashers and air-con could also be more inviting for return visits. A few maintenance issues such as hard to slide windows. To sum up units need updating and modernising to compliment the resort's facilities.

Seashells was very clean and the office staff extremely helpful. The resort is an older resort but very well maintained. The room was comfortable.

Pros: Close to beach Rooms were spacious. The cost was also very reasonable.

Great facilities right next to diamond beach

Had a great time, kids enjoyed all the facilities- tennis, games room, pool and spa. The only thing to be mindful is the beach is Unpatrolled and there is no cafe in the resort. But not too far from the town or shops.

Loved the vicinity, quietness and closeness to the beach. The unit we stayed in was well maintained clean and tidy. Would recommend to friends and will certainly stay there again.

Very uncomfortable in summer.

Pros: Nothing much.
Cons: Install air conditioners in the room.
Location: There are no major attractions close by. If you enjoy the beach, it is a minutes walk away.
The first thing I have to say, there is no air conditioners in the rooms. We arrived on a 34 degree, very high humidity day to find only ceiling fans. It was terrible. Secondly, the term "not enough room to swing a cat" applies to the bathroom/toilet. Whilst rinsing my mouth at the basin, my rear end was bumping the wall.

Nice resort, right on the beach

Pros: Wotif
Location: Very close to beautiful beaches, bush walks, Tallwoods Golf Course and only 20 minutes to Forster.
We really enjoyed our stay at Seashells. The staff were friendly and helpful. There are lots of activities for kids and adults, we loved the table tennis and the pool. The adult areas, spa and billiard room, were also a plus. The resort is right on Diamond Beach and close to other beaches. Would highly recommend this resort.
