We stayed here for a long weekend in July but were not overly impressed. Check in staff were very efficient and helpful, no faults there. The cabin was huge - two bedroomed, one with two singles, one with a queen. The beds were very hard, but otherwise the rooms were well appointed. The bathroom was massive, suitable for wheelchairs so the shower was set up for the disabled. (My husband can't do stairs so we had the disabled cabin which has a slope instead of stairs. Others have 3 or 4 steps). The lounge suite was quite comfortable. The carpet wasn't great, a bit stained and moth eaten down the join. It was equipped for 4 people, so it was a small table, which is absolutely fine but the room is massive and looked unfurnished. The kitchen is very well equipped, everything clean. There is a large deck with barbecue and a massive table. The noise from planes isn't really too intrusive though planes do start at 6am, but surely if you book somewhere close to an airport, it really isn't fair to complain about plane noise! The cabins are on stumps, as frankly are most cabins everywhere, and there will be a certain amount of vibration when people walk about - these are after all holiday cabins, not solid brick homes. The location is close to the beach and the boardwalk to Glenelg, but don't expect a sea view as the resort is behind the sand dunes. Where these cabins fall down is in the lack of privacy which is so bad as to be unacceptable. They are close together (no closer than most other parks) and have massive windows but there are no nets or vertical blinds, they are all roller blinds. That means that due to the large number of windows, if the blinds are up then you may as well be living in a shop window. The same applies to the huge patio doors - they are great, but the really bad thing is that in the evenings with the doors open and the light on there is absolutely no privacy whatsoever. It's really not acceptable. Beware the in-cabin information suggesting that the restaurant at Adelaide Shores Caravan Park is open from 7.30 for breakfast - it's not, and it's a 1km walk. That's ok, but not when there is a long queue outside and it's raining with nowhere to shelter. The golf club over the road is not open for evening meals, or early breakfast. The best bet for evening meals is the sailing club which is easy walking distance along the beach or the boardwalk, but beware the quality and service. Most people will end up needing transport of some kind to get to a decent restaurant. We won't stay here again, just happier with the smaller cabins in Adelaide Shores Big 4, with its restaurant on site for basic food.
