Had such a lovely time, the atomostphet was great, the staff were so lovely and helpful and the site for our tent was really great. What I really appreciated the most was how great the ammenities were, like the showers were big and clean, the toilets were clean and of course the kitchen was clean and very useful.

As a first time user during the January period I now know what its like in a "Refugee Camp", very noisey, crowded, with some residents intent on breaking the drinking record for the most consecutive days. The park has a 10pm curfew on loud noise, which was not adhered to at least by a number of the campers near our...

The park is beautifully located - no issues here - BUT if you are caravanning on a powered site be aware that the main road which runs along the beach will be outside or inside your caravan - the sites that run along the main road fence are so so noisy all day long and night, people walking on the...

Great place to stay with or without a family. Great for the kids with movies each night, disco and other kids to play with! It is across the road from the beautiful Shoal Bay. The park is extremely well run and the staff are really helpful.

We stayed 3 nights in a catamaran villa. It was great!! Clean and tidy. Full equipped kitchen. However, there are not enough pots and pans to cook a proper meal. I would recommend to anyone who looks for comfort!

This place is amazing . The location and setting of the villas is so relaxing and tropical you would think you're on a tropical island. The villas are always clean and inviting. This place will get 5 stars if it had a swimming pool but the sparkling beach across the road compensates for that. We will always keep coming here.

We had a great time during our 5-day stay. Your camping amenities were very satisfactory and your location is excellent. The beach is just across the road, walking tracks everywhere and other Bays (Nelson, Salamander) are just a few minutes drive.
