From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. Unit size was great and well furnished. Position is awesome right on the bay, close to shops and cafés. Only downside was the pool was a little small but other than that a perfect couple of days, will definitely be back!

Upon arrival we were treated poorly, manager made us feel very unwelcome. The overall interior of the apartment was nice, airconditioner in one of the rooms didn't work unfortunately. Would be a lovely place to stay if they treated their guests with a more welcoming manner rather than a roll of the eye and a auro that made you feel...

The picture in my mind if a resort is probably Bali, one with 24hr service, pools an acre in size, 5 star restaurant, you know the deal. This property is a motel style apartment complex, set off the street, possibly views from the front apartments but ours was of the parking lot. Not an issue in itself, just sayin'. But...

Good accommodation for those needing more than 1 room, location at Horseshoe Bay is pretty good. But at the end of the day it is a motel style property. If you want a resort feel this is not the place. Reception closes early evening and overnight. No facilities here as such. Might pay to book a table for dinner at...

Price was a little high due to school holidays, although justified by the fact kitchen was the most fully equipped of any we have stayed in. Everything including egg cups, whisks, washing machine and dryer in room,......could only be better if there was butter in the fridge;-) Seriously, that is the only thing we needed as shop on ground floor...
