Very relaxed and pleasant stay with my family.”

Great location, tasty food, friendly staff

My experience with Caves Beachside Hotel is full of joy. It started with a very quick check-in and beautiful smiles on the face the reception staff. I was even given a $100 gift card to spend in the Bristo restaurant in the hotel to compensate the under-construction work of the villa beside the one we stayed. In fact, it didn't bother us at all because it was the Easter holiday so nobody actually did any work on it. From the lounge of our villa, we can hear and see the ocean through the gap between the villas in front of us. I guess the view must be better from the front row however, it is absolutely OK for us as we could take a short stroll to the Caves Beach (within 5 minutes) and there is much more magnificent ocean view waiting for us over there.

Great Getaway for Couples ”

Pros: great restaurant with outdoor deck, the restaurant is order at the cash register and pickup much like a food court. The beach is only 1 min walk across the small grass field. We stayed in a beach bungalow and each unit is not stuck together so you don’t need to worry about the “thin walls” issue like hotels. Free underground non-secure parking. IGA groceries is 5 min walk up the hill and nice cafe as well that we went for brunch. Coles and Woolys is 5min away. The surf club is only 5 min away (all by car). Cons: no transit system, staff was not too courteous and had a whatever attitude at times. The phone in the room wasn’t working at all and some of the light bulbs were out and not turning on (which they fixed the next day) but the phone wasnt fixed so we had to call from our cellphones to call front desk and explain each time that we’re currently staying there and the phones not working etc etc .... They hold weddings and late night drunk people can be disturbing at 12am.

Lovely spot ”

Such a lovely place to stay for the weekend. Rooms are warm, light & cosy. You can sit on your balcony & enjoy the sunshine, watch the bird life around & listen to the ocean. Loved getting up early & having a very peaceful morning walk on the beach. Lovely spot to recharge the batteries. Hotel is close for dinner or just a drink, great atmosphere. Highly recommend for couples for a beautiful weekend away.

Our family enjoyed staying at this hotel, rooms are clean, and bed size is big. However, there is no air con in the bedrooms, there is only one in the living room. Staff can be unattended occasionally, and the lady we spoke with doesn't seem to be very familiar with the area.

Beautiful place to stay”

Stayed in a wonderful fully functioning townhouse right on the water.. doesn’t get much better than that! Very clean, with comfy beds and a gorgeous view. Loved the pool and very short stroll to the beach. Staff were excellent, very welcoming and generous. Only downside was there is hardly any phone reception or internet access (but that is probably perfect for some trying to get a break from busy life). Would definitely recommend! A++

Wedding Venue”

We attended a wedding and the organisation of it could not be faulted (due to the function organiser and the bride). The reception venue was decorated simply but effectively. The food was excellent and the function staff were very attentive. There was no WiFi connection in our room and it was very poor in the hotel itself. This meant no phone or computer access until you left the hotel & staff knows this and should advise on their website. Yes, it is good to 'get away' from phone and email at times but it is essential to let potential guests know beforehand, particularly if they are awaiting important, personal news etc. Overall, our 2-night stay was very pleasant but we felt the suite rate was about 20% too high.

Very good”

The lights in our room didn’t work properly and majority of the ones in the bathroom were out, or flickered when on. If I turned on a twitch all the lights in the room went out. Also the mattress in our room was really old and uncomfortable. The stair in our room walking down was extremely unstable and I actually had fell when I stood on it and it went forwards. But everything else was beautiful, the view, the small touches like the headed towel rack, the size of the shower head. Stood out far more than the negative. The convienience of the lock up parking, the bar being 1 minute walk from the suite was incredible, i’d Stay there again!

These are nice rooms in a great location. If you want a resort this is not a resort. No pool, very average food and minimal service. These are very good modern beach Villas but very little extra service and not even a phone to call reception. We had a good time here and were well satisfied with the Hotel and it was a great holiday villa but that is all.
