Stayed here for one night over a weekend for a quick getaway. I tried t book a week beforehand, but was told to try the day before - as they like to save their cabins for people staying more than one night - fair enough I thought.
Fortunately, this paid off and we were able to obtain a garden villa cabin. Quite functional with a kitchenette, we were happily self contained. Beds weren't too uncomfortable, and we were in a good location within the park (up the front for easy access to the beach).
During our stay we noticed a plethora of cockroaches, spiders and mice within the cabin. For over $200 for one night, I wasn't expecting to stay in such a low maintained cabin. The bugs and vermin issues were a complete turn off.
I wasn't school holidays but there were also many many children on bikes and scooters riding around the park. Great if you have kids, not so great if you don't. They were everywhere, and are an issue if you are driving around the park.
Staff were friendly, but we were only here for one night - so there wasn't much of an interaction with them.
Overall I would contemplate staying again, but would definitely complain to the enth degree if the bug and vermin situation has not improved. For shame Fingal Bay Holiday Park, put mor effort in to making our visitors stays clean and comfortable.
