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.

This more than a caravan park. My wife and were looking for holiday accomodation for our stay at Phillip Island Victoria. We booked a Studio cabin. Very comfortable with ensuite, kitchenette and porch. Good sized bed and not soft The staff are friendly and nothing is any trouble. Close to shops. Highly recommend.

Amaroo Park staff are friendly. Cabins were spotless. Bed extremely comfortable. Linen spotless and sheets exceptional fresh and new. Everything you need is in the cabin and functional. Pool was spotless and well maintained. The grounds are well maintained and clean. Close to main street and within walking distance to supermarkets. Having the lovely café next door is a bonus. There's so many things to do at Phillip Island. We are looking forward to our next trip back to Amaroo Park

Perfect central accommodation in every way to explore Cowes & surrounds. Friendly hosts. Accommodation was faultless. Cabins & house were super clean, well appointed, world class bedding & bed. I can genuinely not wait to go back.

Reception did not listen to our request that we be able to park our 7 metre van next to a cabin. Took the money straight away after saying we could park and then said they would show us where to park - away from the cabin. Offered an upgrade to a deluxe cabin. 2 bedroom but rooms were small. Toilet you could hardly get in the door. No oven. Gas cooktop only went to a medium flame so our pork fillets were stewed - not browned. No bowls to use for cooking in the microwave. No egg slice - just plastic tongs and serving spoons. Couch was really uncomfortable - we put the extra cushions on top and still sunk to the bottom. Price outrageous - we took a stay 2 pay for 2 but still very expensive

Response from Lisa Macpherson, General Manager at Amaroo Park
Responded 20 June 2023
I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We upgraded you to a superior 2 bedroom villa, these are only 4 year old villas. Our star rating is generally 5 stars, most familys love them. Your van was able to be parked right next to the villa. For 3 nights at $434 I dont think this is unreasonable pricing. We are on site to help with anything you need, and are able to offer solutions. Trudi and Gerrit did there best to accomodate you, just sorry they could not please you. And I dont think we deserve a 1 star review.

Just returned from a 5 day stay at this fabulous caravan park! We travelled with our small dog, and the cabin we hired was perfect for two adults & our dog bed.. The staff at Amaroo were very friendly & helpful... Very cheerful whenever you saw any of them, at all times. Very clean pool & surrounds too. Great location.. So close to the main street in Cowes. We had lunch in the adjoining restaurant, which was lovely & plentiful. All in all, a lovely trip & we'll definitely return.

Just needed a place to stay for a night when visiting Phillip's Island. Very clean, good value, and perfectly located right next to (but a quiet block away from) the main street with restaurant and shops. Bonus: a really nice restaurant for breakfast next door with a veranda and great food. After booking, they send you an email with instruction for how to get a key using codes from a machine. That would be ok, yet sounded a little impersonal. But when I got there, two helpful and cheerful women checked me in and gave me advice. I thought I lost my key (yes, smart move) while viewing the penguin parade, and one of the women at the desk was onsite after a phone call to let me in at 10:00p. She had every right to be a grump; instead, she was pleasant and understanding. Much appreciated.

I took my 3 grandchildren ( 19, 8 and 6) for a 3 night stay . I’m from the U.K. so wasn’t sure what to expect . It’s a very compact site with good amenities such as laundry etc . The automatic check in was a bit confusing and we needed help . We got the last chalet available , which was an older model with two bedrooms but was well equipped and very clean . The outdoor pool gets very busy , as you would expect but had a large canopy over 1/2 the pool which was essential on hot sunny days . The park is about 5-10 minutes from the beach & very close to supermarkets and shops . The outdoor veranda was a welcome addition and gave us more usable space
