Great location, within walking distance of the centre. Quiet and tranquil with lots of greenery. Lovely pool area with sunloungers, a bbq and tables & chairs. The rooms were large and clean with comfy beds. Plenty of seating in the sitting area and the kitchen area had most things needed to make a basic meal. Overall the bathrooms are a...

We grabbed a quick week here recently to escape the dreadful weather in Victoria. Had a great time in basic but terrific rooms. The rooms are of reasonable size, bathroom quite big and the added kitchenette a bonus to prepare breakfast or very light meals. The outdoor BBQ area is beautifully kept, two BBQs, fridge, tables and chairs, lounges, toilets...

Stayed there for 5 nights and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. This accommodation was great value for money. The rooms were very nice and had all the essential kitchen items. We had 5GB of WiFi which was plenty. At times it was a bit slow, however we managed to watch a few shows on Netflix using it....

I stayed here for 3 nights just doing a quick trip and reconnaissance mission of the area. I would not call the resort 4 star but the room was nice and clean and roomy. I spent most days exploring but to come back to air con or a nice hotel pool was relaxing. Town only took 5mins on a slow...

Great resort extremely close to town. Great value and extremely clean and well maintained. We stayed for a week and could have stayed for longer. Very quiet resort with pleasant outlook from the pool view rooms. BBQ area around the pool was a great spot to enjoy a meal. And so close to the main street with all its shops...

My boyfriend and I were in PD for a friend's wedding. We wanted something close to the action, by with enough facilities so we didn't have to rely on eating out all the time. PD Retreat fit the bill. It's not the fanciest place in the world but it is clean, the staff are really friendly and incredibly helpful and...

We stayed here for a long weekend in October 2016. Right for the start the couple at reception were friendly and helpful with local information of restaurants and places of interest. We had arrived well early of 2:00pm check in, although our room wasn't ready, the staff gave us a time to return which was within the hour. The hotel...

Stayed here several times, always in 24 has it has the best view of the pool which is always quiet. Its great to sit under the fan on the balcony with a glass of wine. Granted you have to go upstairs but a bit of exercise can't be a bad thing plus you don't have people walking past your room....

Enjoyed our 8 night stay. Excellent location being close to main shopping street, marina and beach. Very quiet rooms overlooking the tropical gardens and relaxing pool. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were adequate with small kitchenette. Loved the balcony room where we enjoyed an afternoon happy hour drink. Would definitely stay here again... Good value for money. 😄

Great location- easy walking distance to shops and the beach. Lovely pool and surrounds. Areas of sun, part shade or full shade during the day- something for everyone! Simple room but clean and comfortable. Shower a bit on the small side, but water pressure good and bathroom a good size. Small kitchenette if you want to cook, although it's central...
