We stayed at The Shores for 10 nights and it was great. Lovely and quiet, great facilities in the area and at the resort. Wonderful staff! Plenty of room in the townhouse for all 6 of us! Right on the beach!

We loved our stay at the Shores holiday apartments. We booked three family apartments and stayed over new year. We couldn't have been happier with the staff (friendly and helpful), room amenities (full kitchen and laundry), grounds (well maintained green grassy lawns) and outside amenities (well maintained, clean, functional BBQs, several pools, spa, tennis courts, volley ball facilities) and the...

We would return in an instant. Loved the place and the location. Had our own private beach really !! The unit was well set up and the kitchen had everything we could possibly need. No negatives at all that we could see.,

I adored staying there with the tennis courts, pool and beach and peace and quiet and helpful, friendly staff, I would stay there more regularly if it was around $200 per night more than that becomes more of a rare treat.

We stayed during the large Queensland Mining Expo in Mackay in July. It was great to get away from the town centre. Walk along the beach and relax after a long days work. Would be great for a holiday to enjoy more of the facilities on offer. Staff where also very friendly and it was a quiet place to stay.

We have stayed in the 2 bedroom beachfront apartments a couple of times. The apartments are well equipped and comfortable although somewhat expensive. The undercover barbeque is excellent as are the grounds and tennis court. The place has a couple of brickbats; each time we have stayed we have had to sweep the outside areas on arrival; there are ants...

Thanks for taking the time to review our property and the positive feedback about the apartments and facilities. If you feel our rates are expensive my suggestion is to phone us directly to book for the best rates. When booking online there are always additional costs that are born by the property. My apologies about the ants and sand outside...
