We have just returned from an amazing little get away at the Caves Beachside Resort. Walking into the room (after struggling to open the door), we were really impressed, it is very open and lovely - took us a little while to get used to not having a toilet door though, probably not something we would adapt in our own...

I booked an 'Ocean' 2br Villa for 4 nights thinking it was by the ocean as the photos show. Upon checking in I was given keys that said 'Garden' Villa and when the receptionist showed us the map of the resort I noticed that Villa #16 allocated to us, was nowhere near the ocean. I questioned it and she said,...

Walk to the beach is only about 100m from the suite, fab location! We ate at the hotel on Saturday night, the food was beautiful. The portions were huge! The...

This place has the ideal location but is not worth the visit. The food is TERRIBLE. There are magpies flying around inside, the seating is so stained and dirty it's embarrassing. This place needs a total makeover. Spend some money on it to encourage your locals to return. The burgers are awful, the chips are old and cold and the...

A Luxury Escape this was not. Rather it was an overpriced room with a few quirks in a great location. First thing you need to know is that mobile phone coverage is almost non-existent at the resort and therefore you will experience trouble accessing the internet on your phone or tablet directly. This is not something that you can blame...

This is an incredible hotel. Gorgeous location right on Caves Beach! You can walk right out onto the beautiful sand. The rooms/bungalows are very nice and modern. Very clean and up to date. Only issue I had was that EVERY time I showered the smoke alarm went off! Way too sensitive. Another issue, if you're going there for business (which...

The hotel room was good and was down by the lagoon had all the things you required and even a deep bath. The room furnishings needed some updating or maintenance issues, but all in all was entirely acceptable for the price we paid. The Beach itself is a lovely walk through to the caves themselves and best to do on...

This is a wonderful place for a Sunday lunch with friends and family. The dining area has heaps of natural light and a view of the ocean. The food is good and the staff are friendly. It's wonderfully relaxing with a 'kids room' so everyone is happy!

“Fabulous views from front villas town houses”

“If you book an ocean villa better ask how close it is to the ocean. And that the whole villa is air conditioned - not just the one room.”
  • The room key says Garden Villa but they insist it's an Ocean Villa -partial Ocean View Villa at
  • Room has no air con (only ceiling fan) and the sun shines strongly in there making it boiling ho
