Getting to know the DIBB

Join Date: Jul 11
Summer Bay is on Hwy192, just one mile short of the junction with State Hwy 27.
Check in was quick and easy. There is the usual palaver whereby you have have to pick up your parking permit from another desk and you're invited onto the tour. However there was no hard sell here and it was a relatively pleasant experience.
There were a lot of phonecalls afterward trying to persuade us to take the tour, but by that time you're settled in and they are easily dealt with.
The apartment (3 bed) was clean and tidy and access easy with a lift. We were in block 530 with Big Kahuna pool right out front. We did worry that this would be a problem with noise, but that wasn't the case, the apartment was very quiet.
With the pool so close to the apartment, we made good use of this, particularly in the mornings, before we went to the parks. Pool was nice and clean and has a shallow entry area suitable for small children. The only complaint really is that the bar/diner does not open till ten o'clock, so no breakfast service. However prices are reasonable. There are poolside games and activities in the morning and these are well organised and enjoyed by everyone.
There is a Publix on site with a small strip mall. There is also a 'Papa Johns' pizza which will deliver to the resort. We ordered at the shop after buying our groceries in Publix and it was delivered just as we'd put the groceries away. Nice timing.
One good tip is that when you are leaving the resort, take the road to Publix, and leave the resort that way, making use of the traffic lights to get onto the 192.
There is a Walmart nearby on Hwy 27.

Staff at reception were very helpful, and it was no problem to arrange late checkout from our apartment, letting us have use of the facilities prior to heading for the airport.
There is a film night for kids at the pool next to reception, which was good fun, but beware of mosquitoes at this pool in the evening. There is also a kids water play area which our Grand Daughter very much enjoyed.
All things considered this is a nice resort and we would be happy to stay there again.

Well we did stay again, just two of us. I'm happy to report that high standards are being maintained. When we arrived, the lift to the apartment didn't work, just one of those things, however my other half has mobility difficulties. On informing reception, I've never seen anything fixed so quickly. The reception manager RAN over to the block and maintenance was on the scene immediately. Well done, Summer Bay.
There has been investment since last year with the kids adventure pool now finished, security is good with barriers now fitted at the gate and there is a new activity centre under construction. There are plenty pools but these are mostly geared for kids. The resort does lack a deeper pool where adults can actually swim. But that's me being picky.
No hassle at all this year with phone calls trying to get us to take the tour and once again, checking in was easy.
Still a nice friendly and clean resort and once again, we'll be back.
