We stayed 1 night in a studio villa and found the facilities extremely clean, tidy and very upmarket furnishings. Reception was very informative and friendly and the park well within walking distance to local shops

We stayed for two nights in the studio villas located at the front of the property. These rooms, although adequate, are quite small with a very narrow bathroom. They do have a small refrigerator and kettle in the room. There is a nice communal outdoor kitchen with a large refrigerator behind the units where there are a few camping spaces.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the studio villas.. very comfy with the basics in the room being a bed bathroom and a small fridge with tea/coffee and a kettle.. There is a communal bbq and other cooking facilities out the back with a larger fridge. The staff are lovely. Great for a short stay.

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.
