Tacoma, New South Wales, Australia
January 3, 2003
We paid $265 (Australian) each for two nights. For the money we got a three-bedroom apartment which slept six people. One of us slept on the floor on a blow-up mattress that we took.
The apartment had an ensuite and another bathroom, and a fully decked out kitchen with all the necessary appliances for cooking if you wanted to save money on food. All linen is provided as are the towels. All you need to bring is your clothes.
Also for the price you got free use of the indoor swimming pool, the outdoor pool, the salt water indoor spa, the two other indoor spas, and the gym.
The resort complex also included a bar, pub, and bistro. The drinks were reasonably priced as were the meals. The bistro served fish and chips, calamari, steaks with salads, and many other dishes. The bars had live music on Friday and Saturday nights. One of the bars had easy listening music while the other had dance music.
The resort also had a mini-bus that transports people to the other night spots so you don't have to drink and drive.
The resort is within close walking distance to an Italian restaurant and to convenience shops. The lovely Shoal Bay Beach is directly across the road.
We had a great weekend and were disappointed when it ended and even more disappointed that we had to return to work the following day. Why is it that trips and holidays are never long enough?
