Stayed in Deluxe Cabin which was roomy, clean and most important had a comfy bed. . A five minute walk to Cowes beach or Main Street Cowes with Coles supermarket close by. No noise from traffic. Thanks Carol on reception who was fantastic with making our 'girlfriends' getaway an enjoyable one.

We have spent 2 nights at Amaroo. The park is well located, only a minute walk to Coles and a few minutes walk to the main strip of shops and the beach. The park is predominately occupied by permanents. There are a small number of cabins and caravan sites. The cabin is relatively small with a particularly small bedrooms and... More

We had a lovely one night stay in our one bedroom cabin. The lady at reception was polite and helpful, and gave us plenty of options of things to do. She also informed us about the free wifi and gave us the code. Our cabin was cleaned nicely and all of the linen was nice. My only suggestion is maybe... More

Fantastic find for a quick one night stay for a friends wedding in Newhaven. It seems to be one of the few places on the island that does not overcharge and accepts one night stays, well done one filling a void in the market. Very friendly staff with a quick check in. The studio was spotless in terms of cleanliness,... More

Just got back from a perfect 2 night stay on a grassy powered campsite. Park hosts were friendly and kept the place at a wonderful standard. Camp kitchen covers all needs ( 2 x barbecues, tables, large fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster, 2 x hotplates). Facilities and the grounds were immaculate. Didn't get to use the pool but maybe next... More

I only booked one night in a cabin as I was travelling and arrived tired at the end of a very long day. The receptionist was cheerful and efficient - my key was ready and within minutes I was in my room. The room was spotless, the bedding felt crispy clean. I walked next door to the Japanese Resturant which... More

From the helpful and smiley staff to the swimming pool, our accommodation was fantastic, clean, presentable, comfortable. The location is brilliant, walking distance to Coles and the main shopping strip as well as Cowes Beach. Not crowded, very family friendly. We will definitely be coming here again.

Good feel factor when we arrived here. Toilets spotless. Swimming pool a bonus. 3 minute walk to local restaurants and Main Street. Beach 5 minute drive. Penguin Parade 15 minute drive. Grand Prix circuit 10 minutes away. Outdoor kitchen very outdoor with no protection against the wind and rain. The design of this area lacked any thought for rainy days... More

Thank you for your review Our villas for 4 are smaller than our family villas, and understand your frustration with the hanging space. We have improved all of our villas, and still trying to solve the cupboard space issues. Take care Amaroo Park More
