I honestly don't think we have had better service anywhere we have stayed. Without any prompting from us, the team there moved us from a glamping tent to a spa cabin because of the crazy wind and rain - this was such great advice from them. We will definitely go back to stay in a glamping tent because they have the most sensational location and view, but we were pleased to be in the spa villa during the stormy nights. The spa bath is a decent size :) and the villa was clean and comfortable, warm and had everything you need. We were given good advice about local dining and supermarket. It was an easy 15 minute walk to the club for dinner (which meant we could both have a couple of drinks and walk back). The beach is right there and if you keep walking up sunset beach you find really lovely little private beaches. We will definitely be back.

We stayed in Glamping Tent number 6. It was a great stay for my husband and I and our 2 girls. The king size bed was so unbelievably comfortable! The eco toilet in the tent was fine, not smelly at all. The girls loved the shower with the music :) We loved the amount of wildlife there was around and the view of the colourful sunsets. The pool is great for kids as there was a smaller pool to splash around in for the younger ones. There was a park across the road from the resort which the kids loved, and we also took a few walks around the marina. We fished down at the beach and at the boat ramp which was nice and close. The only downfall i would have for our stay would be no lighting on the deck of the tent for the evenings, so once the kids were in bed we could have sat outside and enjoyed a drink - apart from that everything was wonderful!

It felt really special to stay here in one of the glamping tents. It was such a nice spot and boutique feeling for a leisure park. We stayed during the week and felt like we had the place to ourselves although there were others around. The accommodation was so well appointed with added touches like dish washing things a really nice surprise. Although we got quite a bit of rain during our stay, being inside the glamping tent was not an issue when we could open the window flaps and watch the rain outside. Sitting on the patio in the morning for breakfast and looking out to the water with the bird life coming over to investigate what we were up to was lovely too. Would definitely go back.

We stayed for two nights in the glamping tents overlooking the water. The location, presentation of the tents, and the friendliness of the staff were all amazing. Our kids loved the experience, especially the bath with music and the pool! We will definitely be going back.
