Reviewed December 3, 2010

The only thing going for this place is the beach, and I suspect that this is the only reason visitors come back. The reception staff could barely raise a grunt when we booked in. The van sites were not level, grass was uncut, gardens overrun with weeds and the whole place looked like it could do with a makeover. This is supposed to be a four and a half star resort park. The cost reflected this but not the quality. Management needs to go and take a look at Park Beach Caravan Park at Coffs Harbour and take a leaf or two out of their book.

We booked a 2 nights stay in this Caravan Park based on a lot of review on the internet. We paid around $165 per night for a 2 bedroom spa cabin which was described as 4 star. Either the owners have not stayed in a 4 star hotel or have plainly lied about this place being a 4 star. This is hardly a two star or less (atleast the cabin that we got). The cabin had an old air-conditioner which would mysteriously stop every now and then and I had to wake up 3-4 times through the night to turn it back on. The 'SPA' in the main bathroom was so dirty that you couldn't possibly use it unless you were drunk. The linen was very old and bad quality. Some matress protectors had big holes in them. They had two very old CRT televisions, an old tape HIFI system and a VHS video player in this 'so-called' 4 star cabin.

Just a week ago, we had paid $130 a night for a 2 bedroom apartment in Sydney overlooking the darling harbour so I couldn't understand who this dirty, old place was so overpriced despite being in the middle of nowhere.

I certainly don't recommend staying in this place and was definitely the worst place we ever stayed in for our $165.

We stayed in a spa cabin at One Mile Beach for 1 week in January. We had friends and their daughter stay in the cabin next to us at the same time. We had such a great time that we wished we could have stayed longer. Whilst it is pricey for the deluxe cabins, they were well set out and easy to live in. Its only a couple of hours from Sydney and not as expensive as holiday parks closer to Sydney. The park is very clean and BBQ facilities are available (though not a lot of them and if you don't get there 1st you may have to wait a while - take your own BBQ if you can). One of the best things about the holiday park is it's proximity to the beach (1 minute walk over the dunes) and the streets full of kids safety riding their bikes or ripstiks. The park has everything you need for a great holiday and staff service is great. We thought it was so good that we have booked our holiday for January 2011 and added a couple of extra days.

We travelled for a weekend in May which qualifies as low season and the prices reflect this. The high season prices could be steep when staying for more than a couple of nights. The accommodation is clean and of a high standard. The staff were exceptional and ensured that we had eveything for our toddler son that we needed. The park is right on the beach (just over the dunes) but also has a swimming pool, multiple bbqs, children's play areas and even a little aviary. As caravan parks go, this would be one that I'd recommend.

Stayed here for 2 nights in a cabin with my Husband and 3 young children. This park is a great place to stay for families.Our cabin was self contained and had 2 seperate bedrooms plus a verandah with outdoor setting.
The facilities at this park are great, there is a playground & a pool with waterslide and also putt putt golf which the kids loved.
There are free undercover bbqs around the park, these are kept very clean.
The park grounds are well maintained.
The beach was very accessable being only a 1 minute walk over the sandune from our cabin.
You do need a pin code (provided at reception on check in) to use all park facilities(pool, golf etc) and to enter and exit park, this can become a bit of a hassle, but otherwise we found this a lovely place to holiday.

We arrived here late in the day (at 4) and were only staying one night so there wasn't alot of time to enjoy the facilities but it would have been nice to do so. The holiday park is a collection of cabins and slabs for caravans and tents that seems like a whole suburb in itself with street names to help navigate through the large park.

The pool and spa were nice and relaxing after a long day drive. It was a shame that these facilities were closed off after sunset though. One mile is a very family orientated park with lots of children running around and such. There's free mini golf and tennis courts, basketball courts, a small cage of birds and the beach right next to the park.

Our ensuite rooms had all amenities we could of wanted (except a hairdryer) and came with a small porch in front to enjoy the night air.
