A very nice studio apartment with every thing we needed including small kitchen area, washer and dryer in the bathroom, 2 seater lounge, dining table & chairs, and balcony with the most stunning view. Unfortunately the restaurant has closed but there are plenty of alternatives nearby.

Cigarette butts throughout verandah. Pool was nice but looked like it had rust spots or something looking like it. Pool chair broken. Asked reception about what's good in area...

The Oaks Waterfront Resort is in need of renovations. The front desk told us that plans are in place to renovate this hotel. The condos are individually owned. We had a studio unit. It was comfortable and clean. However, the washer was missing. We did not need to wash clothes, so this was not a problem. The highlight of the...
