We stayed here last week in a two bedroom villa. It was with some initial concern that I booked us into this resort as some of the reviews had been negative about various aspects of the accommodation but as our relatives from Canadian had booked their time share here we were committed to staying. I booked through Classic Holidays which...

Staff were terrific, resort was clean and tidy. Very close to beach and a great location to explore the area. 15 minutes from Forster for shopping. The beaches and walks in the area are stunning. Will stay here again.

This was our first visit to the resort and the Great Lakes area. We found our villa very comfortable, clean and well equiped. We could not have asked for better service, staff were friendly and helpful at all times. The resort also offers a number of excursions to various points of interest which we found very interesting and a lot...

This is the second time we have stayed here and really enjoy the peaceful atmosphere the resort offers. With the family we enjoyed days of tennis, lounging by the pool and utilising the gym facilities. On our own we are enjoying the peace & quiet. The manager is very friendly and has recommended many lovely places to visit in the...

My wife and I stayed here for a week in July, 2014. We did not realize it was winter in Australia!! No problem, the weather was in the high 60's to low 70's the whole week. There were several beaches within walking distance, and these were mostly deserted. It was a little chilly for sunbathing, but perfect for visiting to...

Stayed here with family recently. Wildlife great. Bush turkeys and kookaburras very friendly. Facilities good. Pool and spa area great. Good playground and games room. Villas are tired. No oven. This was fine as we tended to eat out. No bath though which we found very inconvenient with little kids and a baby. Need to watch hot water too to...

We stayed for a week in a reasonably well equipped detached villa with no views but some scrub turkeys and other birdlife around made the outside passable.The local beach would have been excellent and only a few minutes walk away if the weather wasn't so cold.

When you go away you want everything to be right and unfortunately the way this 'resort' is run, reduced our entire experience. Small Zip water heaters for a 6-sleeper rooms means you run out of hot water and have cold showers unless you stagger them 45 minutes apart. The dish washing detergent is so diluted it lasts only 2 washes,...

Spent a week in a roomy 3 Bedroom updated villa with friends and it is a great spot to relax and use as a base to investigate the great lakes region.
