This park has beautiful facilities and a perfect location with many cabins right on the beach front. The playground is very good for toddlers, well fenced and has that soft rubber base for little kid crashes. The pool and spa have great surrounds and there is a cafe on location for a lazy breakfast etc. There is a large range of accommodation options available with many different cabin styles and prices.
On this trip we were on our way to Sydney for the long weekend and only had the Friday night to spare. We could see on the Big 4 online booking website that many cabins were booked for Saturday and Sunday only, which should have made our Friday only family of 5 booking a bonus for Easts Beach. Unfortunately the person taking our booking kept insisting that a 2 night minimum was required even though it actually wasn't available. Eventually she consulted management and our booking was taken but we were only allowed to stay in the basic and very dated “Holiday Villa” cabin up on the hill.
On arrival the reception was very pleasant and a faulty light in our cabin was quickly repaired. The cabin we were were offered was unsuitable and very unsafe for a family with an infant and toddler, it had a very poorly designed slippery concrete stair well in the entry that extended into the family room. This alone was unsafe but it also had no intermediate safety railings and only a top hand rail. After our toddler fell twice on the stairs we found we had to rearrange all the furniture to create a safety barrier. The next problem was the reverse cycle heater cut out half way through the night and we were all freezing in the morning.
We noticed that many of the better quality cabins in better locations remained vacant on the Friday night and we were very disappointed that we were not permitted to stay in a safer and more comfortable cabin. I would highly recommend this park, but at $200 a night for a basic, dated, cold and unsafe ”Holiday Villa”, there are better motels in town for far less, insist on one of the newer cabins when you book as they are not much dearer.
Insist on a newer beachfront cabin and avoid the old cabins on the hill.
