Stayed here with my mother for 4 nights and enjoyed it. The pool was nice and the activities were good. Is located near shops and food. Very family orientated, many kids running around. Did not have free WiFi or premium channels.

We stayed here on a family holiday for three nights in a two bedroom villa. The room was very tidy and clean and the staff were friendly and professional. There was a unit being renovated directly across from ours which was a bit of a issue as we had to close the doors because the noise of construction was drowning... More

Stayed in a motel room as it was a last minute reservation and was very dubious as to what we would find. Arrived on a late flight and keys and directions easy to find despite the heavy rain falling. Motel room was surprisingly spacious with large bed, two fairly comfortable chairs, an adequate kitchenette including storage containers to use in... More

We stayed in the Paradise Apartment which we found to be very spacious, clean and well appointed. The kitchen was well equipped and included a stove top, oven and microwave. There were plenty of utensils and crockery etc. Ceiling fans and air conditioners throughout make this accommodation comfortable all year round. Would definitely stay there again. The location is so... More

When on a recent trip in a campervan, my father and I stayed 2 nights here. We had all the facilities we needed except a shower and toilet. Felt we had to pay plenty for a small site, old facilities and fairly unfriendly service.. Once booked in, we did not ask any assistance of staff. We were self contained apart... More

Our second visit to this holiday park (first time camping) but this time we stayed in a tropical chalet unit. It was clean and comfortable enough for a short stay. Queen bed and single bed in the main living room and a triple bunk in the bedroom. Small fridge with a microwave, cooking facilities, aircon and 32" TV was certainly... More

We just wanted an overnight stay and chose a Big 4 as the facilities they offer, in particular a camp kitchen, were what we wanted for this one night stay . Our site was more than adequate and the facilities were clean and warming on a chilly winter morning but the camp kitchen was extremely disappointing for a Big 4.... More
