Owned by expats (notice the Swiss and Aussie flags?), the oddly named Golddigger's Resort endeavours to emulate Aussie midrange standards.
The result is a very practical and comfortable little resort that's proven to be a hit — you'll definitely want to book ahead for one of the 20 rooms here. All rooms have satellite TV, hot showers, and a mini-fridge. It's a kid-friendly place, with a decent swimming pool and on-site restaurant. It's a bit of a walk to the beach, but the staff will gladly give you a ride there and back. The resort isn't anything spectacular, but the unbelievably helpful staff make all the difference. Recommended for families on a budget.
