Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic spot for our little family. We had a 2 bedroom cabin which worked great and right next to the pool. We unfortunately didn’t get to go to the outdoor cinema or animal park due to the monsoon that was happening but we were still well entertained by the other available facilities! All the staff were so lovely and the unit very clean as well as some treats left for us for our arrival! Thank you very much!

We had such a great time from the moment we arrived. Really easy checkin and generous sized camping spots. Ensuite sites are clean! Kids can easily ride their push bikes are in a safe environment. Slides were fantastic for both kids and adults. Lots of free activities also! Mini golf, outdoor cinemas, etc. Kids never complained about being bored once (hallelujah!) 10000/10 take mozzie spray, coils, etc. Staff were nothing but kind! Overall 10/10 and will be back one day!

It was fun, slides had large gaps between the segments of slides and hurt my skin, very little water on a few slides, one slide had loose beams, another had a sharp turn where I hit my head very hard on the slide and had severe neck pain for 5 days. I won't press charges though as I'm sure it was the way I went down, I went down feet first, not pulling myself to go faster just sliding like the signs said, including peers. I suffered from mild neck pain after that for about 2 weeks.

This is a great park for families with young children so much for them to do they even have a time table of things/activities for the kids. We had a ensuite site which was really nice. I would recommend this location albeit a little pricy. Plenty of facilities ie laundry have plenty of washing machines. They have a huge swimming pool for kids. Well maintained. We stayed 4 nights and were happy with our stay. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The Spa Cottage for two adults and two children was spotless. A welcome packet of Tim Tams in the Friday with a small bottle of milk and a jug of cold water was a considerate touch. So clean, the kitchen was very well equiped. The bed was not the worst but not the best it really needed to be changed as sagged the middle so not so good on the back. The water park and food vans were a hit with the children and only 10mins from the shopping centre/restaurants. Good for families

It's fantastic to know that the well-equipped kitchen and the amenities like the water park and food vans were a hit with the children. Your feedback about the bed is valuable, and whilst we understand everyone's comfort level is different, we do appreciate this feedback.

We gave this rating due to the lack of ammenities for the number of campers. If you happened to be at the back of the park near the cabins it was a long walk to the nearest ammenities. The pools and extra activities provided for children was great.

What a fantastic holiday! 2 adults, 3 kids (12, 7, 2). We stayed on a powered slab site for 7 nights. Amenities and camp kitchen were close by and kept very clean. The kids absolutely loved the water slides and pool (pool was a tiny bit too cold though). Great amenities! The cafe produced great light meals and drinks during the morning but probably were a bit slow. A family member stayed in a cabin and it was clean, modern, immaculate! Staff were all very helpful.

Maurice C wrote a review Sept 2023
Melbourne, Australia250 contributions136 helpful votes
We stayed in a “Studio Apartment” or studio cabin which was very clean and comfortable for 2 people. The cabin was well set up with everything needed for self-catering and a comfortable bed. The area around the cabin was very quiet and was well maintained. A massive “Waterslide Park” and other nearby activities would be great for children. The pool was also a good size and easily accessed. A car would generally be needed to travel around Airlie Beach, although other transport is available. A bistro in the Reef Gateway Hotel over the road offered great meals and a Woolworths and other stores were within about 900 metres walking from the resort. Food services, from ‘food trucks’ such as a Pizza night were available in the park on given nights. Generally a very pleasant place to stay.
