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.

We've stayed here twice, booking a Starfish Cabin, love the location. The other cabins are mostly blocked by caravans so no view, so we are happy to stay in this cabin as it has an open outlook, and the balcony is a nice feature. The queen bed was surprisngly comfortable. But cabin is old, dated, and not very welll equipped. Two small uncomfortable lounges. BYO anything you think you will need aside from the 4 cups, plates and bowls, and one large glass dish supplied. Really old worn cutlery, ie plastic handle knives coming away from blade. Tiny bathroom, no shower caddy, could use extra hooks as limited hanging for towels and toiletry bags. There is a small clothes airer, which we used on the balcony to hang towels. Coat hangers were grimy old plastic attached to the rail. Having said that the overall cabin cleanliness was very good. No entertaining platters, bowls etc. Our Cabin was quite small compared to other Holiday park cabins we have stayed in, not much you can do about the size, but the furniture could be more comfortable and updated. We asked about Foxtel, which they had advertised on their website, but told they definitely don't have it, nor do they have smart TVs. Also advertised was free WiFi but an info sheet in cabin said you had to pay for it. This is a great Holiday Park if you are a caravaner or camper, as the communal facilities are very good. I just can't recommend the cabin standard we stayed in, certainly not homely and we make do as we love the location and holidaying with friends who use the park with their caravan. So you need to weigh up your priorities of comfort / location, etc..I do feel for the dollars charged, the things I mention are not luxuries and should be updated / included. In writing this review, and it's similar to last years, I am hoping that management will consider taking on board what I have highlighted. If these things are not spoken about, nothing changes. Here's hoping. On a positive final note, the staff are lovely and they do their best to accommodate. It's higher up the chain I'm hoping, that someone can listen to constructive guest feedback that they ask for.

We loved the location of this caravan park. It is literally right next door to the town of Byron Bay and also has direct beach access through the back gate. You get personalised codes for everything, the boom gate, the amenities and the beach gate which makes you feel safe.

The basic powered sites are tight and difficult to access but once in they are great. You can get the super luxe sites up near the beach for extra premium price and they have a large, new pad.

There is absolutely NO TV reception unless you have a very tall moveable aerial which we wish they'd tell you upfront so you don't mess around trying to fix something that's unfixable.

But overall, this place is brilliant and we will be back.

Dear Lynda Thank you for choosing to stay with us at First Sun Holiday Park. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We don't usually have any issues with TV reception, perhaps all of the storms and weather events recently have affected it. Your feedback helps us continue to provide great experiences for our guests, we look forward to seeing you again in the future Kind regards

My partner and I spent three nights at First Sun in our motorhome whilst working our way up the East Coast recently. (Feb 2021).

We LOVED this site! The amenities were clean (I really liked that they have the radio playing throughout the bathrooms, nothing worse than silent bathrooms!! Something I actually missed when moving onto our next few sites throughout the trip - it was something really small but was a nice touch!) the kitchen was in good condition and had everything you needed to make your meals.

It's in the PERFECT location within Byron, from our site it took 3 minutes to be on the beach and in the ocean and was just a 3-4 minute walk into town and had everything you could possibly need right on the doorstep.

Would 100% recommend and we will no doubt stay again in the future. Thanks for a great stay First Sun :)

The sites were extremely overpriced. We had motorhomeS so we required a powered site which was at a crazy price.

The location is great however the staff were not nice at all very rude and unpleasant. If you came back late you had to basically be a mouse Or you had rude caretakers telling you off. We were not loud at all and were very courteous to others around us.

The showers were filthy and need a serious upgrade. I felt more dirtier walking out of them

We deffinatly won’t stay again

We really enjoyed our stay and for sure we will come back!
The location is excellent, near to the beach.
The facilities are very good.
My suggestion is to add a curtain on each shower to avoid the space gets so wet.

We recommend it.

We had a 4 night stay in this park on a waterfront powered site and loved it. If accommodation is all about position then you can't do better than this. The staff were friendly and helpful on check in and the park was lovely. Grounds and facilities were well maintained, BBQ'S were checked a couple of times during the day to ensure cleanliness.
We loved the seat's and tables overlooking the ocean and had sunset drinks each evening there.
We loved our stay but as with most things in Byron you pay a premium. It's the most we have ever paid for a powered waterfront site even though it was low season, but for a break it's perfect spot on the beach and step's to town.

10/10! Location to Byron Bay Town Centre and the main beach right on your doorstep are amazing. Welcoming reception. Beautifully well laid out and kept grounds, facilities, kitchen areas and shower/toilet areas. Easy to park up our Motorhome on a powered and water site, reasonably priced for the location. Direct secure gated beach access. Perfectly located park area with picnic tables, bbq’s and seating overlooking the beach and ideal for watching the sunrise and sunset. If you love to eat out, the local town has an array of gorgeous cafes, restaurants and eateries to choose from to meet every budget and an abundance of shops and boutiques. Nightlife entertainment and rooftop bars are awesome with something for everyone to enjoy. We love the laid back vibe of Byron Bay, such a special place to stay, unwind and enjoy. We will definitely return and stay longer and highly recommend to family and friends.

This was our first mini break since Covid. First Sun is located within walking distance to the Main Street, we just park our car outside our cabin and walk everywhere we need to. Our cabin was spotless, fresh and modern. Staff were excellent and able to help with our enquires.

This caravan park is an absolute must if you are seeking high quality budget accommodation in lovely Byron that veers between the ridiculously opulent and expensive, and the opposite. The Lodge rooms (which are not multiple accommodation like a hostel - you can book your own room some with a little bathroom!) at First Sun are great low cost accommodation in the most convenient spot - right next to the beach and the town centre. Clean, safe and highly recommended for singles or couples particularly if you want to spend your holiday $$ on the activities you are doing, not on where you are staying.

This is a lovely place to stay. It's smack bang on the beachfront and the ocean breezes are great. We sit out for hours admiring that wonderful views every time we go there. The staff are so helpful and cheery, so that nothing is too much bother. The facilities are kept spotless and the grounds are as tidy as you can expect, considering those cooling sea breezes can sometimes blow the leaves about. Being right in the middle of Byron Bay, it's within walking distance of so many great things to do. We recommend this park and their great staff very highly.
