“Spectacular View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Stayed here 2 nights during the week in a villa with a fantastic view of the lake (stay 2 nights for price of 1- great deal running certain months til end of March). No one else was using villas so was very quiet how we like it- not sure I would like to share the 'back' part of villa that has a internal connecting door. Be sure to ask for lake facing and if anyone else is in adjoining villa. 2 things about the accommodation- the toilet paper is the leaf variety and in what looks a public toilet dispenser- cheap and not a good look! Secondly there was a complimentary body wash but no flannel to apply it to or am I and husband the only ones who needs one??? Now for the cream….the infinity pool….view is amazing and have read others who say it is world class…it is. I can't speak highly enough of it and I found it hard to take myself out of the pool and away from it- spectacular and a must do. Went on the sunset cruise run by Greg from Lake Argyle cruises- another must do and he is a wealth of knowledge- 5 stars to him!!! I would highly rate this just because of the pool and the boat cruise and I will certainly do it again in the quieter months.

Fantastic service, great amenities, super friendly staff and a pool to die for! Make the most of the magnificent infinity pool - the view is truly extraordinary! A very well maintained campground which in a few more years will have even more shade as all the numerous young trees mature.

We had booked here for a few days but ended up staying for a week. The park is a great place to relax. Great sites with excellent facilities. The staff were super friendly, both at the office and at the grounds. Meals are available and once or twice a week some live music. Internet is almost non existent and also there is no mobile coverage (good to relax!!)

Dear RobertKaren
We are so glad you had such a relaxing and enjoyable time during your stay here and it is not uncommon for our guests to do exactly what you did and extend their stay! We are continuing to lobby for improved communications but it is nice to see guests engaging with each other rather than being distracted by phones. From all the staff here at Lake Argyle Resort - enjoy the rest of your travels.

Thank you so much for your excellent service. Leah, you are a treasure! Staying open late for us to get in even though we came in two hours after closing time, service you don't hear about these days! And still a happy smiling face greeting us when we arrived. Excellent clean rooms an comfy bed with ice cold air con. And the views. I have no words to explain the happiness we experienced when waking up to the view I the lake. Enjoyed a walk along the dam wall and then a pleasant swim in the gorgeous infinity pool. Location WOW!! Chef cooked us an awesome breaky and all staff were happy, smiling and willing for a chat. You guys are blessed to have such an awesome home!! Thanks again and will rave to all about this resort. Absolute gem!!

While travelling to Kununurra on business a few times per, we have stayed many times at this great Lake Argyle Resort & Caravan Park. We’re always happy to be back in this wonderful oasis with its world class swimming pool and spectacular view over the lake.
It is a great location, with very friendly staff in a beautiful environment.

Good campsites and the pool is world class! Would recommend.

I don't have anything else to say why is trip advisor so stupid as to require a 200 charcter minimum, beyond belief!
Still not enough words .......

Room Tip: A must do is the sunset cruise on Lake Argyle

Not sure where to start with how great this place was for us. After spending a couple of pretty average days in expensive motel accommodation in Fitzroy Crossing and Kununurra, Lake Argyle Resort was an absolute oasis.

Firstly, there is the genuine and, what might now be termed, 'old fashioned' service. Everywhere along our route had been staffed by travellers who's demeanour was somewhere between disinterested and rude. Lake Argyle is staffed by people that actually care about the job they are doing and realise that the guests appreciate that.

We had paid a deposit to cover 1 of our 2 nights stay when we booked. Upon arrival the woman at the desk informed us that since the booking was placed they had started a 2 nights for the price of 1 deal and that we now no longer had to pay for the second night. Both myself, my wife and our bank balances really appreciated this and we actually couldn't quite believe what we were hearing. There would have been no way for us to know about any special deal and you would assume that most (probably all) other places would just happily take the money off you. This alone would have been enough to motivate me to write this review, but it gets better.

Secondly, after being at so many expensive motel/hotels throughout the region that are just run down motel blocks given a new coat of paint etc, the vibe of this place was another really welcome surprise. They have kept all of the natural charm of the original caravan park (brings back memories of great 80's holidays) while giving the place well thought out and worthwhile updates. We stayed in a regular room and it was clean and modern, but not in a way that is either pretentious or a cynical grab for a higher room rate. The cabins are comfortable, private and up to date.

Thirdly, there is the pool. This is truly one of a kind. Beautifully designed in a way that makes the most of the magnificent view. You really need to see it in person to believe it. Every new person that got in the pool after us had the same reaction: "Wow!" I was such a great experience. It was one of the first (maybe the only) times on our holiday I found people (ourselves included) just chatting to complete strangers. I think the old fashioned holiday vibe and natural beauty of the place really encouraged an openness and friendliness in people. And to arrive just before sunset after a long hot day was just perfect.

All I can say is this is the best place we stayed and the greatest experience on our entire 2 week holiday. My wife and I both count this as an absolute highlight (and we also stayed in 5 star accommodation at Cable Beach). No mobile reception, practically no TV reception, but you don't need either. The ultimate balance of charm and luxury. Recommended for both couples and families that appreicate an actual holiday and not just your usual life transplanted into another part of the country. Go there before it gets a write up in one of the big city papers and everyone is talking about it.

No need to stay in Kununurra town. Load up on supplies (we made ourselves a couple of BBQ meals that were better than any of the overpriced pub meals we had on our route) and spend an extra day at Lake Argyle. It's only about 40 mins drive out of town if you forget something.

Would love to go back.

Room Tip: 2 nights for the price of 1 deal runs through the wet season, so I would recommend booking on the ed...

Dear Keith,
A great big THANK YOU for putting so much time and effort into writing such a comprehensive and well written review! Especially like your comment regarding the lack of modern communication facilities. We are lobbying to try to get mobile phone coverage here, but sometimes we think that maybe it is a good thing that there is not any phone reception. All of our guests have a great time chatting to each other without being distracted by their phones and many stay for a week or more because of the peace and quiet.
Thanks again, and all of the staff and management at Lake Argyle wish you all the best for the rest of your travels.
