    My wife and I decided to stay at the Admirals in again and we were not disappointed, and as usual, greeted with a big smile. Rooms spotlessly clean, plenty of little goodies in the bathroom, nice private balcony, comfortable and quiet

    Shoal bay is just down the road from accommodation. It isn't patrolled but the water is very still and calm.

    Apologies but I can't answer that. We did not require the use of a safe and therefore paid no attention as to whether there was one or not. Maybe you need to contact the motel direct to obtain an answer. Cheers.
