      The penguin viewing doesn’t allow you to see them come out of the water. Basically they come through the property. Lovely location.

      We really enjoyed our stay. The room was lovely, spacious and clean with all amenities for cooking provided. The bed was so comfortable and there was extra bedding if we needed it. Will definitely stay again.

      What beautiful scenery and a wonderful relaxing place - seeing a few penguins is a bonus. It’s not a 5Star resort and no one should expect that at the reason price - it’s just a place you can enjoy nature and be among some very reason creature comforts

      Great location. Accommodation is very clean, fresh and lovely. Food in restaurant is pretty good. Reception area, restaurant and grounds need renovating/ tidy up.

    • 6.0.Good

      Very cheap fixtures fittings and furniture. Extremely lack of utensils. Very poor tradesman works around the unit. Paint coming off skirting boards. Bed was hard as a rock. Pillows the same. Only good thing was the friendly and professional service from the gentlemen at the front desk. And the location is magnificent!!

    • 4.0.Fair

      We chose Diamond Island for our Golden Wedding Anniversary as something special as it was rated @ 4.5 stars. While there are some lovely appointments within our suite, it was shabby with very poor workmanship apparent in the bathroom. The exhaust fans are covered in dust, no telephone connection from our suite to reception, a note taped above the washing up sink saying a fine of $35 would be applied if dishes were not washed; and there was a singular lack of staff. No cleaning staff anywhere and rooms only cleaned every 3 days. We enjoyed our stay, but it simply was not worth $300/night!
