The apartment itself was beautiful - tastefully and practically furnished with everything one could possibly want - and such a view of the ocean and dolphin park over the road. Also...

We stayed in a spacious apartment with lovely ocean views. It was presented immaculately and very modern. The Resort is walking distance to town and right on the beach - perfect for a family with young kids. The pool was huge and a beautiful temperature. Highly recommended!

We have never been to Yamba before and found the hotel to br a great choice for families. The ocean view 3 bedroom apartment had awesome views and was comfortable and well equipped. The beach across the road wasn't under flags but was still good for a little kids splash and digging in the sand. There are other beaches close...

Then it was a quick step to swim in the sea across the road, then back to the complex to enjoy the pool. Turn on the hot tub if you want a real blast. Then back to room with all the mod...

We had a 2 night stay in a 3 bedroom apartment that was very clean and tidy with Foxtel, air conditioning and, as this was a ground floor apartment, there was also a little courtyard with table and chairs which is great for relaxing of a summer evening as we were facing the beach and got the sea breeze.
