“A honeymoon to remember”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We stayed here for our honeymoon, and we certainly picked well!! The GCHP is so close to everything, including the themeparks, supermarket,restaurants etc. The staff provide a service that is second to none and are all lovely people with good humour. The park is as clean as a whistle and has excellent facilities for all ages. The Nibbles cafe is staffed with great people who provide lovely food and a comfortable environment. I can't recommend this place enough!! Keep up the fantastic work!!

We used the park as “base” while we visited the Gold Coast in December 2012. Easy to find and although it’s right next to the Pacific High Way you don’t hear the traffic after a few hours. The best place to book if the main purpose of your trip is to visit Wet ‘n’ Wild, Movie World etc. Sea world is a longer drive away but as it’s the only park next to the sea it’s no big deal really. There’s a Spar just up the road (as well as a McD, petrol station) and the nearest Coles supermarket is about 10min away by car. Brisbane is a 50min drive but who needs the city with all the fun places to visit just minutes away.
The swimming pool is an oasis in the hot summer weather and a big hit for children of all ages...even the grey once as well. The staff is friendly and the facilities is clean, working 100% and easy accessible from anywhere in the park. The mosquito’s is not very friendly so take some repellent or burn a candle while you watch the flying foxes during sunset.

Hi HappyCamper,

Thanks for the lovely review and the 5/5 score! Your the first person to comment on the sunset flyover of the Fruit Bats! We love 'em (although were quite happy that they keep flying rather than stopping in with us!). They are heading inland to the fertile feeding grounds up around Mt Tambourine and further inland. They really are an interesting little addition to a holiday experience!

I note comment on the Mozzies.... sadly they were are result of the flooding & the aftermath of all the tropical storms that emanated from Tropical Cyclone Oswald.

We don't usually have a Mozzie problem and as long as the Tropical Cyclones (and the floods) stay away so do they.

With any luck we will see you again soon and wish you safe travel in the meantime.

Cheers

Fantastic park. Great for travellers with their four legged friends. Best pet friendly park we've stayed in by a mile and one of the best parks we've stayed at.
Great pool, restaurant facility with excellent meals.

We stayed in a cozy cabin with a family of 5. It was definitely cozy, because space was limited. There is a great pool although it was very crowded. The jumping pillow for kids was enjoyed. It is very conveniently close to Wet 'n Wild world and movie world, which is why we chose it. Park well organised although expensive for such a small cabin.

My husband and I have stayed at this park on a regular basis for the past three years . We have an absolute soft spot for the park , as we have seen the amazing changes and transformations , with all the current renovations , and upgrades .
The pool area complete with pool for the kids , and cafe, bar and restaurant for the big kids , is the perfect place to add so much fun to your stay .
If you want to take a dip in the pool , or just sit and enjoy a lovely meal , or sip on a Yummy Cocktail , this park is the perfect choice for your next holiday .
It caters for everyone - wether your looking for an apartment , a cabin , or a caravan or tent site with or without ensuite , this park has it all , and caters for all budgets .
I have recommended this park to all my friends , and there are currently four families of us , enjoying this fabulous place - with all the theme parks at its doorstep , the perfect choice also for families .
The other wonderful thing about the park that it is Pet friendly , so our two furry friends ( Miniature Schnauzers ) Molly and Icey think its wonderful they can enjoy a holiday with us in our caravan .
Thanks so much for providing us with an amazing place to stay , with amazing facilities , and we will continue to be one of your number one guests ..
We have already booked our site for our next stay - you guys are the best ...

On first contact with the parks staff months ago over the phone to enquire and then book Deb was just wonderful friendly and knowledgable.

Upon arrival all the girls on reception were all happy and Aisha was so very helpful..... Then to put the cherry on top a smiling man named Pete held the door open for over 5 minutes while our kids decided whether to go in or stay out and he did it all with a big smile on his face!!!!! (No easy task I assure you!!!)

We booked our theme park tickets and tickets to the Outback Spectacular on the recommendation of the staff on reception right here at the park ..... The spectacular was mind blowing thanks for the heads up :)

Our villa apartment is lovely, clean and very well appointed. Being disabled is of no concern to me in this style of accommodation as it is spacious and well set out.

The Cafe menu by the pool is great, tasty and very well priced ...... Again it's no surprise that the staff are also lovely and friendly.

The pool and water slide are entertaining the kids big and small alike, the poolside seating is well thought out and really comfy.

All in all would highly recommend The Gold Coast Holiday Park to families looking for a great base for there theme Park and Gold Coast holiday as it is a brilliant environment for the break days in between the crazy busy touristy outings

100% just brilliant. Cheers :)

We booked here for 6 nights over the Christmas and left early. This was peak season so the price for a powered tent site was $40 pn. The site is right next to the highway, so there is constant traffic noise. The toilets and showers were 'tired' and dirty. They were cleaned every day, but the high usage soon made them dirty again.
The pool area and the camp kitchen area were very nice, and they do allow dogs. They also do free pancakes on sunday for breakfast and a BBQ on Tuesday. However, considering the money, the noise and the cleanliness I would not stay here again.
I suppose if you have kids and are going to the pool or the entertainment parks (which are very close by) this would be ok for a short while.

Dear Malaya2001,

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Your review has been the subject of much discussion today as we try to get to the bottom of your concerns.

It is very disappointing to hear that our amenities did not satisfy and I apologise that they did not meet your expectations. We clean the amenities blocks 3 times a day starting at 530 am and are very proud of our girls who work so hard over Xmas and year round . Nonetheless this doesn't take away from the fact that your were not satisfied.

Following your review we will now ensure that our housekeeping team come through an extra 2 times a day to check that they are up to scratch. This will ensure that the standards are not allowed to slip at any time.

I suspect that the 'tired' amenities you are referring to are those that we have sourced from the events team at 'Coates Hire' . These units were installed to supplement our main amenities block just to get us through the Xmas season. We provided them because we wanted to ensure that there would be ample facilities for all our guests. I think its fair to say that while they did serve that purpose well, we too would have preferred them to be a little 'brighter and newer' but that is something over which we had no control. We were only able to wait and see what they sent us. I guess we solved one problem but created another!

The only consolation is that this is a short term solution and our hope is to have a brand new amenities block built in 2013 & available well before the next Silly season.

Thanks also for the nice things you said about us... the pool etc.

I hope when next you are on the Coast we will be able to host you when its not so busy - the Gold Coast certainly goes a bit crazy at Xmas! Maybe you could stay on one of our river side sites - guaranteed to be large, grassy, quiet and relaxing. With any luck the new amenities block will be completed and your stay will be everything you hoped for.

With thanks for your frank review.
