“Great location!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Absolute best location. Lovely staff. Very helpful. Great pool - but freezing! Toilet block amenities were atrocious...desperately in need of a makeover and rarely cleaned. When we stayed last year, it was much better. Not sure what's happened???

We stayed here for a week in our campervan and had a fantastic holiday. We love the beach and the area.
Our kids enjoyed the holiday activities, especially the kids' yoga, and of course the swimming pool. The beach is beautiful and having surf life savers there is great. The bird life was also amazing.

Called up this holiday park to book afew nights and treated extremely poorly due to my younger age. I won't be going to this place purely on poor and rude service. Was a shame as this place looked quite nice.

Hi Kate,
We are very concerned to hear your complaint of rude service as we endeavour to treat all of our guests with utmost respect and consideration at all times. We do have a policy which requires at least someone over the age of 18 within each booking, this is fairly standard practise across the accommodation industry and doesn't tend to upset too many people. Our Park Manager - Iam Wells would really appreciate the opportunity to discuss with you your experience of customer service at Fingal Bay Holiday Park to see if there is any way we could have better served you. The phone number is 1800 600 203.
Best Regards Rebecca Smith (Marketing Manager)

Our family of 4 stayed in the 3 bedroom Surf Villa SV5 because we like a little extra space and the villas are so close to the beach. Accommodation was clean and well appointed and could easily comfortably accommodate a family of 5 however there is enough beds for up to 7 people. Our favourite aspect was the position. From our spacious verandah, one could see Fingal Beach. A 1-2 minute walk and you're on the sand! A little pricey but you're paying for a beautiful location and great amenities. Would definitely stay again!

We stayed in the garden cabins. Clean, large, new, very comfortable queen bed, quiet and surrounded by trees and palms creating a little oasis. Highly recommend. Great location across the road from the beach.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Just got back to Sydney after a week camping at Fingal Bay. We had a big group, four families on adjoining powered sites on surf road, and one family in a surf villa and another in the top end villas. Womens amenties were good, clean and well maintained but the mens need some attention. The grounds have lots of trees and shrubs so it still feels sort of close to nature and not pure concrete. Great scheduled activities for kids, some a bit pricey, but our gang aged from 3 to 14, especially enjoyed the sand modelling and plaster painting. Hot chip tip - the local cafe/post office run by two lovely women is the superior local for an awesome bacon and egg roll in the morning, and make your coffee a double shot. Their fish and chips are much better than others on the same strip.
My husband rates the fishing as excellent around high tide, but dont tell too many people as we plan on going back and wouldn't want a price increase! Was noisy in the morning with lots of early rising kids during school holidays and there is a fair amount of traffic within the park so although rhe kids rule the roads on their scooters and bikes, watch for the odd thoughtless driver not keeping to the park speed limit.
We had amazing weather for the last week of April and enjoyed swimming, walking and relaxing.
