“Perfect location and great park.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

This was our first time and a last minute booking at this park. It could not have been better. I was a bit dubious after reading previous reviews especially travelling 700 odd kms to the place. But it was top notch in its location, facilities, activities that they ran were all on par with any other park we had stayed out.

Highly enjoyed our stay and will be back and could not recommend it more highly to anyone.

Thanks for a great holiday!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2011

We stayed in a 3brm villa for 7 nights in Dec 2011. The villa, while expensive had the best views over the road to the beach. There are 3 bedroom but only one is air conditioned which seemed a bit strange as the Gold Coast can get very hot especially at this time of year. We ended up all camping in he main bedroom.

The villa could have been a bit cleaner and wasn't properly cleaned for our arrival. I found plenty of reminders left from the previous guests which I found a bit creepy.

The staff were rather unpleasant and didn't seem happy to be there at all.
Management was excellent and really put an effort in to making the guests welcome by cooking pancakes for beakfast and screening movies, maybe they could have a chat to their staff.
My suggestion would be to take your own toilet paper. We were put on rashions and ended up buying our own just so we didn't have to go back and ask for more.

The rooms were only serviced every eight days, there were washing facilities in the room and I was forever washing and drying towels.

Overall our stay was wonderful. We had a few minor maintenance problems which were fixed immediately.

Room Tip: The 3 brm villas have the best location, private and quiet. The other villa seemed nice but had lit...

Never again! One particular staff member at booking in was the rudest person I have ever come across. I don't think I found the attitude changed from the time we arrived to the time we left. Great location, clean, but not worth the hassle. No fun, condescending, rude if you dare ask for help.

This park offers caravan, camping and cabin accommodation in a great location, right opposite the beach and just down the road from theme parks and the night life of the Surfers Paradise area. The park is well maintained and facilities are kept clean. We have camped here several times over the past few years and enjoyed our time there.
However, our most recent visit was spoiled by very unhelpful staff, who allocated us a site too small for our group - despite advance requests for large family sites. We were cramped onto the small site, with insufficient room for our car. Management were very unhelpful in solving the problem they had created - eventually fixed by a friendly group of neighboring campers. In addition, the security patrols seem to be totally ineffective in controlling noise from rowdy groups late at night. We cut our stay short and will not return unless management changes.

The villa was clean and pretty good. However, the staff of the place are very rude. Asking for help with dificult neighbours at the site, and no response. Not helpfull.

This Camp Site is Great. We spent a total of 6 nights here during March 2008. The facilities on sight are absolutely superb. The pitch size for tents/campers/caravans are great! The wash rooms are always clean, and are modern, the various toilet blocks dotted around the sit are great too, as is the pool and sun-bathing area, and the laundry and internet facilities. Right opposite Main Beach, and great location for the Gold Coast Theme Parks, around 15 minutes drive.

  • Liked — Pitch Size and location
  • Disliked — expensive prices of the food in the on site shop. But there are plenty of shops near by

Excellent location, new refurb, great facilities for a bargin price.

My family & I stayed in a Cabin at this park but it also has powered sites & camping facilities. Its quite a small site by caravan park standars but the location is unbeatable. It is directly across the road from Main Beach which is also home to the Surf Club & a kids playground. Just down the road is Seaworld & the in the other direction is Surfers Paradise. All the major theme parks & attractions are only a short drive away. A short walk will find you in the midst of trendy cafes, resturants, bars.

I was very impressed with our cabin (No 1) which overlooked the inground pool (complete with sun shade cover) & gardens. It looked to be new & everything was immaculate. We had a double (comfy) bed & separate room with single bunks. An open plan lounge, (full) kitchen dining & a bathroom complete with bath. The cabins also have a verandah with an outdoor table & BBQ. Right near our cabin was a kids playground & a communal BBQ area. Perfect for my small offspring.

The Surf Club across the road is good too. We had dinner there one night & the food was quite good, bistro style. There is also a bar & pokies.

The beach is beautiful but we did see Bluebottle jellyfish, so bring your wetsuit for a surf or at least some Stingoes spray. We could hear the roar of the ocean from our cabin, Bliss!
