The rooms were exactly as portrayed on their website. We had apartment 7 which is 1 bedroom, with a full kitchen and lovely bathroom. The pool was spotlessly clean, and had the extra luxury of the infinity look! Very comfortable bed and everywhere was clean. There is free underground parking, and very good reception with the free wifi. You can...

Thank you for your great feedback JenJ1. We are at the highest point in Rainbow Beach and while some people love to run or ride their bikes up and down the hill all day, others prefer to drive or catch the taxi. Nonetheless our position in the landscape gives us those breathtaking views and the sense of seclusion and exclusivity....

Stayed for 4 nights in one of the King apartments, it was absolutely amazing. Very well appointed, with views to die for. Really quiet and relaxing. We will definitely be returning. The only negative is no door from the master bedroom to the en-suite, and a bi-folding screen window from the en-suite that looks out into the living and dining...

The view was amazing but the room wasn't perfect. Just small things that were annoying. There was no door between the ensuite and master bedroom, meant very little privacy. The king size bed only had 3 pillows, couldn't find any spare ones or any extra blankets. And there were no blinds on the doors/windows looking out to the balcony, the...

Thank you for your great feedback lauracollins86. My apologies that you only had 3 pillows and if you had of let us know we could have easily supplied more for you. We generally find 1 blanket is sufficient in summer but again if we had known you wanted more we have more on hand and could easily have delivered more...

Absolutely stunning views. The apartment is spotless. So big and clean, with amazing views. Bathrooms are gorgeous, so modern and big! Bedrooms are spacious and beds are super comfy. The man at reception was lovely and friendly too. Would highly recommend staying here, whether your a family or a group of friends or a couple. Pool is amazing.

Spent two nights at this resort over the weekend and really enjoyed it. My wish list included somewhere quiet with a view and both wishes were surpassed by the very obliging manager. The views were amazing and the apartment was perfectly quiet despite being on the roadside. A standout feature of the apartment was how well equipped the kitchen was....

We recently stayed for 7 nights and it was wonderful. Amazing views with great facilities. Just a short walk to the sand blow which offered stunning views also. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms spotless and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We will definitely be back next year!
