We arrived here yesterday and we're extremely disappointed. First we got no wifi then we had to share a connection with another unit and only have coverage in one spot. Definitely not accessible for elderly people. If I knew this I wouldn't have waisted money like this. 1 star rating is to much

As a frequent guest at Chakas Rock for the past 12 years - it's like coming home everytime! Beverly (the manager) and her friendly team are amazing and will go out of their way to make you feel so special and comfortable! The Resort has amazing family facilities to keep everyone entertained. Our kids can play in a safe and secure enviroment! Chalets are spacious, so comfortable and some even have amazing seaviews.

I read the comments on Bookings.com and I was scared, we even had an escape plan to move to another accommodation should we find this one with broken tiles and dripping water! We stayed there for 5 days! It was so amazing! The place is nice, the area is also nice. We were in unit 52 and I had my breakfast outside looking at the water! The staff was great!🥹🥹 If you want to be a peaceful areas, close to beaches..this place is for you! Loved it, my husband wants us to go again 😂😂

chalet was a 6 sleeper it was bit outdated due to its age (but a upgrade of all rooms are in progress ) was clean, cosy and functional ,bed was comfortable and the stuff that was supposed to work did ,the shower is a bit flat and the floor gets wet ,(that was a bit irritating as it is slippery)but mop it and all ok ,all in all a pleasant stay ,even though i had read the bad stuff before i booked ,so from a fussy person its all ok, unless you are beyond fussy, stay at home or go somewhere more fashionable (probably cant afford it hey) cause nothing will satisfy you, you get what you pay for, it was good enough for us, thankyou very much beverly and staff,kind regards llwellyn

Great location, easy access to beach. Unit was well equipped. There was both an air-con and fans. Cleanliness and maintenance was below standard. Overall unit was acceptable but the bathroom needed a good clean. We would return based on location.

My mother wheezed all night due to the duvet covered in dust. My pillow cases still had makeup on it, there were no sheets for the sleeper couch (which didn’t even open properly) and the tables had a thick layer of dust. Spoke to staff and they somehow blamed us and had an unhelpful attitude. Don’t come here if you care about good service and cleanliness.

Really decent accommodation. 6 sleeper was perfect for our 5 member family. S jäh court was an u expected bonus and we forgot our binoculars, so the lookout with the telescope was a welcomed facility for us for dolphin watching. All round a great family vacation accommodation. Quirky fun fact is that there velvet monkeys you will encounter at least once a day, just don’t feed them otherwise they’ll never leave you alone!

It depends on which apartment you get which can impact your stay here. Some of the units have exquisite views while ours had a tiny sliver of the ocean you could barely see through the blocking trees and car ports. Grounds need serious upkeep as well as the kids playground and trampoline which was one of the reasons we chose to stay there. Chalet was older than it looked online but the beds and linen were very comfortable. Pool area was nice. We were disappointed upon arrival but did get comfortable and enjoyed our stay.
