Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent well equipped chalet. We loved the private bbq area and the cleanliness of the resort. On check in, the staff were extremely helpful giving us information about the local area. We’d been travelling around Western Australia so we’re very grateful for the excellent laundry facilities in the kitchen and provision of sachets of washing powder. Thank you for a great few days stay.

We have stayed at the Exmouth Escape a couple of times before and enjoyed it. This time, we stayed for 17 days in December 2023. My main regret is that we didn't stay longer. Everything about this place worked for us. It's clean, spacious (we stayed in the deluxe villa), has good air conditioning, outside barbecue which we used most days, pool, a fast internet connection (this is important as we need to connect to computers in the uk for work purposes), nice bathrooms, nice kitchen with a big table, washing machine, dishwasher...... There is nothing more we could ask for. Exmouth is, to us, a magical place. We can't wait to go back and we'll be booking the Exmouth Escape again.

The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The chalet was clean, comfortable and quite well equipped. There was a small private deck with BBQ. The pool was nice. There is a restaurant on site though run separately and it was quite nice. It is a short drive to the centre of town (5 minutes).

My wife and I stayed 2 nights, arriving at 4PM with a rental car from LEA Airport. The nice receptionist checked my identity, validated my credit card and presented the key to our prepaid 1 bed apartment. #18 was clean and spacious with all modern Ikea facilities including a microwave, dishes and utensils, wash machine and a comfortable queen bed. More positives include the lighting, outlets, 2 AC units, very strong secure WIFI and a small TV with lots of channels. We enjoyed a quiet night’s sleep, quick tankless hot water and the large pool with very cool water. The property perimeter is walled and the encircling drive including access to the apartments is fully covered with pavers. Overall, an enjoyable stay.

Excellent one bedroom apartment. There is a small outdoor area complete with BBQ, table and chairs and outdoor sink. The kitchen was well stocked including a separate small freezer. The washingmachine / dryer was like brand new,with washing powder provided for 2 washes and there was a drying rack in the wardrobe so we could dry out clothes outside. One did have to make sure the place including the kitchen was tidied up and clean prior to departing. If not, there is an additional charge. Pool towels are provided at reception with a $10.00 charge if not returned to them. There is a car park outside your unit and some people had boats.

The resort itself is not luxurious, but is fine. Everything was very clean, and they have a nice pool area and a very pleasant on-site restaurant (not such great service, but a lovely setting and friendly staff; pretty good food). The villas felt more like a motel, with the added negative of having a very strange musty smell (Villa, 34), not sure if it was from the pipes or what, but it made the entire room very unpleasant to stay in. As a whole, the resort is very well located, close to town and to many of the beautiful sights.

Most things about our stay were average and didn't feel worth what we paid, including the check in experience and the standard of the villa itself. It is most certainly not an upscale resort. The on site restaurant was excellent and the staff were so pleasant to deal with. The reason I am bothering to leave a review is down to how the resort dealt with our complaint. We had booked the resort to catch up on sleep, before flying home and back to work after camping for a few nights. Unfortunately the screens on our villa windows were left unsecured by staff. We were woken at 3am on our 1 night stay by the screens banging heavily and couldn't find any way to secure them. The screens continued to bang until we checked out after 9am. We advised reception of the issue, to prevent the same thing happening to the next guest. When we got home we messaged the resort, asking for a review of the hefty fee we paid, given we couldn't sleep. At first we were blamed for not contacting 24 hour maintenance (we were unaware this was an option), this wouldn't have changed the fact we were woken at 3am and our sleep was ruined. When I pointed this out, their defence changed to we checked in at 14:18pm and had adequate time to notify reception. Well great, but the noise started at 3am due to a change of wind direction or speed (it had been windy for days). I did mention our neighbours would no doubt have heard the noise but it seems the owners made no attempt to verify our claims. Then we were outright accused of lying, the owner stated cleaner logs showed the screens were shut right before our stay. Funny enough, when asked to verify this claim, the owner was silent and hasn't responded. Why on earth would we need to interfere with the screens, if we had, surely we would we know how to fix it?! I have literally never left a negative accommodation review before but this one definitely deserved it. This is not how you deal with a genuine complaint. So disappointing and most definitely wouldn't recommend. If this is how the business owner behaves it can only get worse from there.

Hello Karen, It is lovely to speak with you again. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and we are sorry to hear that you feel this way about your stay, and we appreciate your feedback. On your departure date we have it noted that our reception staff received a maintenance issue for the window fly screen as you departed and returned the keys. On the same day we had immediately notified our maintenance staff of this issue and they have immediately gone to your departed apartment to check on this issue. Maintenance had inspected the window fly screen and everything was working correctly and fitted. We have gone through our maintenance log to see if this issue had been reported prior to your stay to double check, however we have not received any notification from prior or current guests, nor from surrounding guests of this issue. We can also confirm that the apartment and all its flyscreens, by our records, were all locked and in their place prior to your check in. The resort offers assistance to all our guests 24/7 so that we may provide a quality experience. Our office is open from 8:00am to 6:00pm daily and we offer after hours assistance to assist with any guest needs and are made available. Our after-hours emergency number can be reached anytime when our office hours are closed (this number is noted on our office front doors, website, and in the compendiums located in each of the rooms for guest's convenience). We do wish that this had been reported to our reception team or our after-hours number at the time so that we may have offered immediate assistance and helped in making your stay a more enjoyable one.

Great place to stay in Exmouth. Self catering with large fridge & stove. Your own bbq, washer dryer & clothes line outside your door. Plenty of parking for two cars. Our two bedroom unit came with two bathrooms. Large tv in the living area. Nice pool area where you can order a cocktail or snack. Restaurant was a bit disappointing so we opted to cook our own food. Would definitely stay here again

We are an American couple who stayed at the Exmouth Escape for 6-days in May 2023. It was our first visit to Australia and we were eager to experience the most fascinating Ningaloo area. According to tourist guides, we used Exmouth as our home base to explore the Cape Range National Park and the coastal waters. The Escape definitely suited our needs and we enjoyed our stay very much. Our one-bedroom apartment, with a porch area, was very spacious and clean. Although our stay was not during the hottest summer months, the air conditioner still provided much comfort. Having the washer and dryer was a plus - we were able to wash and (mostly hang) dry our clothing and gear from daily trips and excursions. Our busy tourist’s schedule did not allow much time to cook. Thus we never used the BBQ. We did use the kitchen for breakfast and some lunch preparations, as well as putting together side dishes and salads some evenings for dinner. What did we have for dinner? Half of the 6 nights we ate at the on-site Whaler restaurant, the other nights we had leftover from the huge entrees from the Whaler. Yes, the Whaler restaurant was worth writing home about. They served large portions of quality dishes, including outstanding seafood. The Whaler took up the center the Escape’s grounds and had a fabulous setting next to the pool. We were glad to have enjoyed three dinners and one lunch there. The whole Escape property appeared to be nicely managed, from the tidy grounds to prompt housekeeping. We had good exchanges with the staff, most of whom were young foreigners working in Australia. We got good support and advice in several areas – pick-up and drop-off of our rental car, daily loans of beach gear and cooler (Eskie), as well as check-in and check-out. The location of the Exmouth Escape was not exactly in the middle of town. When we first arrived, it took us 35 minutes to walk to the grocery store in the central part of Exmouth. The closest place to get dinner would be a 10-minute walk to the Whalebone Brewing Company’s outdoor dining area. After picking up our rental car, it was much more convenient to go to town and beyond. From the Escape, it was a 40-minute drive to reach the Milyering Visitor Center of the Cape Range National Park. We loved these trips to the Lakeside beach just beyond the visitor center. On days when we were on guided excursions, the operators’ bus pick-up at the entrance to the Escape was straightforward. We were able to have good conversations with fellow visitors while waiting for these bus pick-ups. All in all, the Exmouth Escape was a perfect lodging choice for our visit to Ningaloo.

Very clean, contemporary and spacious apartments. Well designed - nice walk into town but has all the creature comforts of a modern apartment. Pool was lovely and the restaurant served amazing local food in good portions. Lots of space to entertain with our large group. Ample parking and very safe. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend when visiting the town.
