Marengo Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Just arrived home after 2 awsome (and unexpected) nights at Marengo. Family of 5 could not afford rates in Appolo Bay,
so went back to Marengo just in case - what a surprise! Location, Location, Location. It's everything! Right on a fantastic
beach with swimming, canoe hire, rock hopping, seal watching........The staff were fantastic and very accomodating, managing to stretch our stay to a second night - we were sooo impressed! The park itself is beautifully presented in an informal and rustic setting with it's wonderfull native trees and wildlife. We stayed in a deluxe cabin - 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, dining and lounge areas, plus DOUBLE SPA , and an outdoor setting on the front verandah with glimpses of the ocean through the trees. Our cabin had ample parking for a car and trailer or medium size boat. The playground kept the kids busy while we prepared meals.Bliss! Did I mention CLEAN ?? The facilities are well maintained and clean, our cabin was exceptional - we have travelled extensively in motels, cabins and caravans , this is without doubt one of if not the best place we have stayed. Thanks again to the staff at Marengo, next time we'll bring the van and stay longer!!

We stayed in one of the cabins. The park is situated just past the main part of Apollo Bay. We looked at the other parks from the outside and they didnt have a very good appeal. We drove around to Merango Bay and were immidiately impressed by the location. The staff were extremely friendly, lovely little hidden spot, very clean, neat and tidy. Good, clean linen and towels. Excellent cooking equipment. The blinds and curtains also close properly, so my child actually slept in - which certainly made a difference to our stay. Absolutely loved it!
We used the binoculars and saw the seals on the little rocky outcrop off the beach. It's a great location. The supermarket is about 5 mins drive away from the park, back at Apollo Bay.

This was our fourth trip to Marengo Holiday Park and once again we enjoyed our stay and couldn't fault the place. We stayed in a cabin as usual, this time the Marie Gabrielle which affords a view down the driveway over the ocean and across part of the reef. Our two dogs slept on the front verandah as required. As always the cabin was clean and had all we needed for our stay. I noticed that the small outdoor settings have been upgraded from the old plastic furniture to a glass topped table and basket weave style metal framed chairs which is a nice touch and shows the owners are not stingy when it comes to maintenance and appearance.

We stayed three nights and enjoyed warm, but not hot, pleasantly overcast weather with some light rain overnight. The sound of the nearby sea sends you off to sleep at night at Marengo and is relaxing and soothing.

Two minutes walk away is the quiet, clean Marengo beach. You won't find tons of people here like you will at places like Lorne - in fact I'm reluctant to write this review as I'd hate to see the place get busy!

During our stay we visited Melba Gully rainforest walk, Johanna beach, the Apostles, and did some beach fishing and fishing off the pier at Apollo Bay. There is so much to do in the area - the only pity of it is that while your pets can stay with you at Marengo, Parks Victoria have made so many areas off limits to dogs - even on leads! It is just a tad mean IMO.

As always our stay was not long enough - but we will be back again.

Room Tip: Take your groceries from home as the Apollo Bay supermarkets are expensive - especially the IGA.

We had 3 great days at this park and really loved the location, close to the beach either side of the park. You can rock walk or sand walk and the view across to Apollo Bay township is fabulous...
We had our dog with us and she too had fun time along the beach. A bit cold in the sea! For swimming but we did!! The amenities block from where we were was a long trip to and from but that's my only bad point. We shall be back. Thanks

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool or fitness centre can't get it off.

Stayed at Marengo Holiday Park in a campervan for one night. Requested a space with ocean views and sounds - to which were kindly granted. Powered site great value for money, clean facilities block and neat communal spaces. The team were very accommodating of our late arrival and a we were greeted with a very friendly farewell on our departure. Very handy for a walk or short drive into Apollo Bay for dinner.
Fantastic!
