Visited during January after school hols in a large family group of 11 adults. Great facilities, town is a pleasant short work away, as is 4-mile beach. Rooms are nothing fancy but perfectly well equipped for a short stay. Made good use of pool and BBQ areas which were always clean and available for use. Reception very useful in assisting...

Recently stayed 2 nights, fantastically appointed you will want for nothing, and very well detailed. Within "town" route for shuttle bus. Friendly staff, easy access, with plenty of parking. When the need arrives this will be my accommodation of choice.

The appartment was OK, clean, but somewhat outdated. Service was difficult to find but OK it was X-mas time. A couplle of small pools we didn't use, but a short nice walk to the beach, which was beautiful. Only problem was that due to risk for stingers (poisonous gellyfish) you only should swim in a smaller area protected by nets

I am not sure how to rate the Bay Villas. The location is fine, 15 minute walk to the main street, there is parkingspace (watch out if you have a big car), the front office is more than friendly and it was clean. Yet we were not overwhelmed by the apartment. It really was a little small. Small kitchenarea, even...

Stayed here with young daughter for five nights. Good standard of facilities. A bit dated. Very clean. Full kitchen in apartment which suited us well. Support from staff via email beforehand was fabulous. Two things I think could be improved on - 1. Better shower head. It was so tiny. Didn't even wet your back without having to move around...

Our room we booked was at 219$ when we got there we had to pay an extra fee of 150$ because my children where over 8 years old .. they said take it or leave it . They would not refund our deposit and said the next morning that the manager would refund some money back to us but that...

You booked a studio for 1 night for a whole family of 4 people and this is only allowed if 1) both of your children are under 2 years old, and 2) one of it sleeps in the same bed than you and the other one in a baby cot. This policy is clear and simple enough, it's just common...

Great size for families, with good kitchen/laundry facilities. Very convenient to marina, town centre, 4 mile beach and nice pool to relax at (water is cooler than beach and no stingers!) A few maintenance issues - we had to move due to non flushing toilet but was not an issue in low season. Air con in new room struggled in...

We enjoyed our recent 3 nights at Bay Villas, the staff are helpful and friendly. We loved our simple apartment with the bandicoot and orange-footed mound builders (birds like chickens) who visited us nightly.

We landed here after some bad weather to lovely sunshine and heat. The resort is great rooms big and spacious with your own amenities to feed, eat and clean your stuff almost self catering in paradise. There is a washer drier, large kitchen space with all the amenities, close by is a large super market to get all your shopping....
