This resort is fantastic if you have kids! It's directly across the road from Pippi Beach and there are two pools (one with a spa) and two tennis courts available for guest use, as well as a BBQ area with two free BBQs, tables and chairs. The apartments are pretty big so there's lots of space to keep boogie boards, beach umbrellas and beach bags in the apartment. Full-size kitchen was excellent for breakfast and cooking some evening meals. It's quite a walk from town - not great with younger kids - but we had no trouble finding parking right in the middle of town.
The main negative was inconsiderate guests drinking, talking and laughing loudly and playing music on their balconies, waking up our kids on two separate evenings. Quiet time is meant to start at 10pm and perhaps management needs to consider some prominent signage reminding guests to turn down the volume down on balconies after 10pm.
The complex is modern, clean and safe and the amenities make it a great choice for families.
Highlights of our Yamba stay included eating authentic Italian food at The Italian on the Hill restaurant, boogie boarding in the patrolled area at Pippi Beach, 10-pin bowling and dinner at the Bowling Club and bushwalking through the rainforest in Iluka. We'll definitely be back and we wouldn't stay anywhere except the Sands.More
