We stayed wit family and friends in 5 different cabins for 2 nights. All were well equipped, clean and what you would expect. We had a good front river view. The bathroom shower head did not shoot straight and was a bit small. The double bed also very short. Kids 3 bunk beds were great value. Aircon is in the...

We stayed here for 8 nights and really enjoyed the park. It is very well maintained and cared for. The camp kitchen is one of the best we've seen. The pool was a great place to cool off and has shade sails to keep the sun off. My only regret was that I didn't know about the sandflies the first...

I stayed as a couple in the bungalows as a cheap option. It was cramped and we were climbing over ourselves in the room and we aren't people that use our room for more than sleeping. The bathroom was clean though. There was an upstairs once that was a bedroom but was closed as I assume the ladder was no...

We stayed here a few weeks ago and loved every minute of it. The park was great, it was quiet when we were there which was good as the kids ran a bit wild, cabins were clean and the kids loved the pool and playground. The water was a short stroll away, and although the fish weren't biting, the kids...

Most important for me are the facilities. And these were great. We had clean toilets, good showers, a clean kitchen and WiFi (just at the gate though). We were welcomed friendly and the directions to our places were clear. Not much to say: we had a good time.
