We stayed at this 'holiday' park over the easter long weekend, It was RUBBISH!
We arrived good Friday in the afternoon to be greeted by a hostile grumpy old man that showed us to our sites. we had booked and paid for three sites and told them at the time of booking we had a camper trailer. we were shown to our site that was big enough for possibly 2, three man tents. if you were lucky. We were unable to fit in this area and argued the point that this wasn't big enough for us. the grumpy old man said well try and set up and see. Great conflict resolution skills. We physically could not fit in the area so we complained and finally were moved to a bigger ares. To the Irish group that got put on our site for 3 tents and paid for 4....you should have gotten a refund. We had no power. if I'm paying for 3 powered sites i want three power boxes. I didn't even get one power box! We ran power from another site 15m away with our own extension cord as the grumpy old man failed to provide us with power. we created a trip hazard and an electrical hazard as we used power boards and further extension cords within our three sites to power all of our tents.
this wasn't the only problem.
Bathrooms - now I don't expect luxury when I'm paying 35 dollars a night but they were filthy! Pure Filth. They were not cleaned every day over a long weekend which the park was at full capacity. they had shower curtains in each shower that reeked.
Rubbish - The rubbish was not cleared over the long weekend thus rodents being attracted to the area. the bins were over full and smelly.
The beach was a 25 minute walk.
The only plus that this place has is the amazing view of sunset.
this place was beyond awful. wont be back. ever.
