“It was ok...”
Reviewed December 28, 2010

Nice enough site, but a couple of let-downs.

Firstly, the lady that checked us in was very miserable, and almost rude. Certainly not a good advert for prospective clients!

Secondly, our pitch was well located, but was very dusty and the ground was uneven. When I say we were well located, we were actually opposite the kids' play area, which could have been a bit of a nuisance (in terms of noise), but actually the play area was closed. Which leads us onto our third point...

We were not informed, during check-in, that our kids would be unable to use the pool or play area. We actually don't have kids, but that's not the point... Also, I am not sure if the lack of facilities was reflected in the price that we paid.

Initially we booked in for one night, but had to extend our stay to two nights due to problems with our campervan. When we booked our additional night, we dealt with two other women at reception, both of whom were lovely - and the complete opposite of the first woman that we had dealt with.

Another issue was with the male bathroom. Well, the door to it. Whenever anyone went in or out, the door would SLAM SHUT! We were actually located next to the shower block, and the slamming door did cause interrupted sleep.

Finally, we were told that there was free WiFi, but that it was 'down today, but will be back up tomorrow'. The fact that we had just booked in for one night failed to register with the receptionist that we would be unable to use this facility. In actual fact, we did stay for another night, but the WiFi still didn't work...

On a plus note, both an ice cream man and fish man did their rounds of the site, selling their wares. Also, the beach was lovely!

Not a terrible experience by any means, but not brilliant either... We might stay here again, and recommend to a friend, but only if we could be located away from the pool and play area - if they were up and running - and if they weren't up and running, I would hope to be told about it.

Stayed for one night in a "Sandpiper" cabin for two. Great value with flat screen / dvd / foxtel as well as a spa and very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful, and such a short walk to the beach.
