“Nice but not enough for the price”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

We stayed here recently after reading mostly good reviews. Unfortunately we were a little disappointed with the apartment. The location was excellent with the apartments so close to the beach and the main street of town. The major letdown for us was the cleanliness or lack thereof. Traveling with a baby makes you notice the little things and as soon as we put him on the floor he was crawling around picking up little bits of fluff and random bits and pieces to eat. We vacuumed ourselves after this! The kitchen was lovely but the cupboards and drawers need a good scrub. And the bathrooms were nice but also not as clean as I would expect when paying over $700 for three nights. On a positive note the staff are lovely and the overall look of the apartment was modern and appealing. The pool is also very nice.

We were not disappointed. The place is fabulous, excellent location with wonderful reviews and quite spacious. The Hosts are very friendly and go above and beyond to ensure there are no impediments to having a great time, whilst at the same time ensuring your privacy.
Forster has it all, from the shops to the quiet out of the way areas, and all with an excellent ambiance.
We will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms have an excellent view - some with 180 degrees (even 270 degrees)

We popped-in a few months ago just to have a peek and decided on the way home that we would treat ourselves to a couple of day's away and this is where we'd stay. Well, we've done that and boy, let me tell you, you can not go wrong. Everything was just perfect! We stayed in the penthouse on the 9th floor and WOW, what a view! The apartment was spotless, bed's huge, bathroom very clean, security parking and nothing was a problem. Shops and restaurants nearby, the beach, well, you look at it every day and clubs serving fine food.... what more can I say? It was just the most relaxing hassle-free stay we've ever experienced. Instead of travelling overseas for a break in the future, we'll spend our money locally instead and Forster is well worth it I'm here to tell you!

Room Tip: Go and stay with another couple and share the penthouse! You'll have a wonderful experience.

We stayed here for three nights right in the middle of winter and loved it. Actually got the penthouse for a 1 bedroom price (low season is probably the only time this would be available).

Great views of the ocean, loads of dolphins about.

The fitness room wasn't the greatest (it's right off of the lobby) so don't expect much from that. And Beaches doesn't provide any food service of any kind, but that was OK with us. The room very well appointed and comfortable bed. We'd be back.
