I stayed they with my family. It's great - very pricey if you need a room with a bathroom (we did for our young children.) Anyway - $279 per night. The big problem I had is that they provide you with 1gb of internet and if you want more; you need to pay for it. With work and kids downloading...

A really nice Holiday Park. Big, plenty of space, great play area for the kids and just a very short pleasant walk to the beautiful beach (about 30 metres, depending on where you are camped). Would definitely stay here again. The staff are helpful and friendly and the toilets, showers etc clean and nice

Now this is very important -- The description of the room that was provided by the booking site is different from the language that...

A repeat visit and one that we thoroughly enjoyed as usual. Location is brilliant especially if you ask for a beach front pitch. The facilities are all excellent and very well maintained. Site is really busy at weekends, so if you want a quieter time try and stay during the weekdays. Some shops close by and good for cycling around...

DeLux Villa, absolutely worth the slight extra cost, wonderful views to beach and rolling surf. Very comfortable, fully equipped, and if you are into "beach" this could be it. Twin beds could be "bunks", and rather firm, probably for children, advise you check when booking.

We stayed in a bach for one night. There were 5 adults and 2 kids. The batch was very roomy and the mattress's very comfortable. It had everything we needed. We loved that it had 2 showers and 2 toilets so we weren't queuing up. Even though the bach is near the road you couldn't hear the traffic. We would...
