Enjoyed our stay for 5 nights. Amazing location or even the best views in Harvey Bay. Clean and well maintained facility. Will visit again. Have recommended it to family and friends too. Shops close by and excellent views of Fraser in the distance.

Very handy position close to restaurants. A quiet position right on the beach front and no traffic noise as the rooms are away from the road. Close to the Hervey Bay boat club and only about a 10 minute drive to the shops.

This resort is absolute water front - some rooms are overlooking the beach, some rooms have views of the Marina. Both lovely.

We had the same problem as I wanted to go shopping at the Marina and my husband wanted to go visit a sick friend. Result I couldn't go shopping. There are many reasons why I could not recommend this establishment.
