We stayed in a two bedroom. It's definitely worth the money. The apartment is very spacious and the best views. The staff were very friendly and was able to get into our room early. Great place for families, being close to the strand, the use of pool, BBQ, tennis court.

Very clean, up to date and had everything needed for a 5 night stay. We were there for New Years Eve and the balcony of our unit gave us the best view of fireworks in Townsville! Also included free ferry tickets to Magnetic Island which was a bonus. Would definitely stay there again.
