3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Villa blinds were missing so no privacy but it was cheap overnight stay for my family of six. Overall clean dry place to sleep. If you want luxury this is definitely not the place to book. Hasn't been updated since 1970's. It is very close to the entrance beach and the lake.

This is my second visit to the The El Largo Tourist Park, located on the waterfront in The Entrance. The location is great. Shops, cafes and restaurants are within walking distance. There is a bike / walking path right out the front which offers a very pleasant outlook. The ammenities are old, but clean and tidy. Not at all fancy,... More

Absolutely disgusting noisy with disrespectful guest staying in villas. Staff have absolutely no control. Adults & children still walking around & riding scooters at 2:30am right outside your window, even had children peeking in my window at 1am.packed up my children & demanded a full refund on a 3 night stay after 1 terrible night.

I wish there was an option to give no stars at all. This place was disgusting. Filthy, reception staff do not care. Over priced. Filthy. Old. Stinky. Filthy. Noisy. Beds as hard as rocks. Filthy. Needs to be bull dozed. No privacy as all the blinds are broken so people can see straight in. I would NEVER stay here again.

This place is not worth the money and is disgustingly dirty! Lights don't work, carpets are filthy, there is no clean amenities. Mound on the verticals. Lights don't work. Take disinfectant wipes - you will need them!! Do not stay here even though the location is great you WILL not enjoy your stay!!!

We booked in for 3 days on powered site. Three separate vans and were told we could only have 1 amenities key between us as they didn't have enough keys to give out. We said we wanted our own as we were apart from the other two so paid $20 deposit. The other two were told they had to share.... More

El Lago Tourist park could be better with a little effort. We stayed in the villas at the Tourist Park which could really do with some TLC. We had no hot water and only one blanket per bed - 2 of which were so stiff they were unbearable to sleep with - I was freezing!! We appreciate this is budget... More
