Stayed here with husband, our two kids, my sister and nephew. The cabin accommodation was a little squashed with so many, but it was clean and reasonably priced and really, the kids were outside riding their bikes around the quiet park the whole time (we could let even the 3-year-old roam as it is such a lovely little park) so...

I have traveled the world (see my other reviews) and found this 'park' to be THE WORST place I have ever stayed- due to their poor customer service and misleading advertising. Firstly- their website states they are Pet Friendly- this happens to be only if you own 1 dog- not 2. They state they have a pool- it is open... More

I am very sad that you feel this way about Amaroo Park. But I will defend our Dog Friendly Park. I believe that you can only review a place on trip advisor if you have stayed at the place. And according to our records the only person booked in was your boyfriend. The booking was originally for 1 caravan, and... More

This was our first trip to Phillip Island. We had 4 adults and 2 little ones and stayed in a family villa. The family villas were small and cosy, which was ok for 2 nights - but any longer and it would have been too small. The little ones liked the pool and the games room. A playground on site... More

Since your stay we have upgraded the bedding, placed hair dryers in the bathrooms. These studio rooms are being closed in July 2014 for a full renovation. Including split... More

Stayed here with my daughter and we had one of the smaller cabins. Very clean and nicely presented. Lovely central position. Can't really comment on the facilities of the site, as we only stayed one night. Happy with all the facilities and the friendly welcome from the reception staff. One slight gripe......you can't fill the kettle, or glasses, from the... More

Location of the park was fantastic, easy walking down to all the shops, restaurants and the beach. Staff (and dog!!) were very welcoming and friendly on arrival. Nice and quiet, however our villa for 4 was tiny, and seemed to get smaller over our 5 night stay. Our feet were black within a couple of hours to the point where... More

Thank you for your honest, fair opinion. Since reading this trip advisor we are changing the mops more regularly (new heads), our cleaning staff know to move the furniture for cleaning, but we are reiterating this with very large signs on our board list. Our location is fantastic, and Youkis is a real bonus to Amaroo Park. Because of this... More

Lovely quiet park. Warmly greeted upon arrival. Stayed in Villa 4 for 4 nights. Very clean and well appointed. Bedrooms and bathroom on the small side however manageable. Hot weekend so the air-conditioning and ceiling fan was a relief! Great place to stay for those on a budget that want to be walking distance (5 minutes or so) to the... More

We loved our 2 night stay here with family visitors from overseas. Bedrooms and bathroom a little small, but cabins well appointed, and the kids loved the pool - especially our 2yr old as he could wade in himself from the sloping shallow end. Despite the hot weather the cabins stayed cool, and it was lovely and quiet despite the... More

Very relaxing park with a nice little self contained unit, walking distance to almost all of the restaurants and beach. Staff was very friendly on check in and check out making it the perfect weekend getaway.

Thank you Tim for your kind review and your tips for future guests. We are quiet, we are very close to town and we are a little park, being only 2.5 acres. All of which just adds to a nice experience. Its lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to you coming again in the future.... More
