The property is in an excellent location with fantastic views across Encounter Bay from the Studio Ocean View room. Unfortunately there are quite a lot of steps to get to your room so you have to carry your luggage as there are no lifts. You need to drive 10 mins for dining and shopping options. The bedroom/ lounge area is comfortable. The kitchenette is small but adequate if you don't want to cook meals. The bathroom is freezing in winter. The staff were very friendly.

Would stay there again. Could do with a little more maintenance in walkways as these were covered in litter dropped by palm trees.

The apartment was super comfortable, the view amazing, the staff friendly and attentive. The spa was a great surprise and they provided bath salts as well. The coffee machine, the robes, everything was perfect and exceeded expectations.

Room was too light at night due to outside lighting. Broken fittings not replaced. No plug to sink.

Our room suited us as we are older, we could not have managed the stairs to any of the other rooms. Our room area was superb, however the bed may need to be renewed not in good shape at all.
