We recently stayed 2 nights at the Morten Island Eco Village. We had purchased a deal from Cudo, so was really good value.

The units were not what I was expecting. I was picturing little two bedroom units all the same, like what you get in caravan parks. Well they were all different. Different sizes, different bathrooms and kitchens and all looked like you had step back to the 60’s or 70’s. They must have been all separately owned at some stage.

We had units 1, 3 and 7. 1 and 3 were OK but 7 was very small and it was supposed to sleep 7 people. They was 4 adults and a 2 year old staying in 7 and it was very squishy. If it had been longer than 2 nights, they would have asked to be moved. We stayed in unit 1 which was not bad. Two bedrooms with a bunk in one and a queen size in the other. Pretty big kitchen, which looked like it had been done up. Unit 3 was were my parents stayed. It was upstairs from the store. It was good too. Had two good sized rooms with two bunks and a queen. It had a big kitchen. But the lounge was long and narrow. It had a veranda out the front and down the side which was good.

They were comfortable enough but I don’t think that I would be paying the $150 a night that they normally are. Don’t think they are worth that.

Basic does not begin to describe this place. The accommodation was substandard to say the least. I was unable to use either the gas stove top or the gas oven as there was a serious leak that filled the entire unit with the smell of gas when switched on. All cooking, including boiling water for drinking was done in the microwave as there was no electric kettle provided. .
We were also unfortunate enough to have been allocated a unit which had a pump or generator outside the main bedroom which operated, noisily, all night long. We did not sleep at all that night. Furthermore, at no point during the booking procedure or during the 3 telephone conversations I had with booking staff, was I informed that I should bring my own bed linen or hire it at $20 per person. Quite an extra added expense when traveling with 2 adults and 2 children. Given the cost, I would have expected this to have been included.
The floor covering was torn in several places, the TV did not work well, the DVD player did not work at all and quite frankly it just isn't good enough. We left the village feeling tired and ripped after one night as we were unable to face sleeping in the abysmally appointed accommodation for a second night.
While Moreton Island is a beautiful place and we'd love to come back, absolutely no power on earth could convince me to stay at the Moreton Island Eco Village again. We were looking for peace and quiet and did not wish to stay in a resort however the standard of accommodation we experienced is not one which should be advertised as even remotely adequate. A tent would be better. The only positive things I have to say about your organisation is that your staff are friendly and helpful and the ferry ride enjoyable.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.
