We were travelling from the Gold Coast to Sydney and were after a one night stay somewhere halfway. Most caravan parks have a rule of only being able to book four nights minimum in the school holidays. However Sawtell Beach holiday park were very accommodating and booked us one night stay in a cabin a few months prior to our... More

Camping with kids. Pool is not their own, but you do get a pass to get in once. $5 a day per kid or $1 to supervise. Some play equipment, but there's constant traffic next to it to a youth church. Close to town, but surf beach is 10min walk. Sawtell is a cute place, but trendy cafés are expensive.... More

The accommodation was booked several months ago with specific instructions for 2 separate rooms to be made up. When we checked in the girl in reception stated that there was a specific request in the system for the second room to be made up. I think she needs to review how the internal communication works. When we got to the... More

We just spent a week here camping, and loved it! It's a big park but set in beautiful grounds at the end of the main street in town. We had a powered grass site for our camper and found the site really big compared to many other places we've camped. The grass is well taken care of and there were... More

Sawtell is a lovely town and area with so much on offer. However, after many years staying at this caravan park over Xmas I feel it time to complain. This park is very expensive with little to show for the expense. A) Amenities block dirty and unhygienic. Scum around all floor wastes in the showers, obvious mould only cleaned up... More

The cleaning in this caravan park was terrible. Most showers the floor was so filthy I would have to wash it out myself! I had overheard cleaners saying "Don't worry, lets do it another day", with some days I was left without any toilet paper.. Lazy staff, unclean environment.

Great location, however the price is extremely high. The rule of 4 night minimum payment (even if you only want to stay one) is money grabbing and disgusting. Toilet block extremely unclean, mold growing on seats, walls, and doors; while grime on the floors is thick. In our stay a 2 metre long seat in the disabled shower came loose... More

Located in walking distance to the centre of Sawtell village and shops. Great view of the beach and sea. Plenty of space for your caravan or tent and different types of cabins. Amenities are very clean. A big caravan park with plenty of facilities and friendly staff.

Spent three nights here in our camper trailer. Arrived well after three but still had plenty of powered sights to select from. This is a large, leafy park with lots of grassy space to spread out in. The quaint tree lined Main Street was only a few minutes walk away and it had plenty of eating (and browsing) options. We... More

Overnight stay in a 5-berth cabin as there were no studios with Queen bed available. Rather old and extremely compact style with so little space on either side of the bed that we had to shuffle sideways around it! And as per other reviews, kitchenette cooking equipment quite badly rusted. The pros : Check-in was pleasant and easy going, grounds... More
