“Basic Cabins, excellent beach, long way from town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2011

Long way from towns, great access to beach, rowdy with lots of families during school holidays, activities for kids, expensive general store with some take away, best to take supplies from town. Cabins basic, clean linen, laudry facilities not very good, need new machines. Would rather stay in town.

BallinaBV, Owner at Ballina Beach Village, responded to this review, April 17, 2011
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review on Trip Advisor about the Ballina Beach Village. Yes it is true - during school holidays it is incredibly busy with families! So if you are looking for a really really quiet time, please don't come during school holidays. Any other time is fine in terms of serenity.

Because of our free circus school, Rainbow Kidz Klub, Flying trapeze and Snakes Alive show we attract lots and lots of families! Which is great for us, but not so wonderful if you want a desert island! So I am sorry about that. Please readers - always tell our reception staff about what sort of experience you are after - we will always be honest and upfront. After all your comfort and happiness is our greatest concern.

Our little Kiosk gets a beating about prices regularly but in all honesty it is typically only about a $1 over what you would be paying at the big supermarkets - which is not bad for being able to buy something conveniently in an eco paradise. And don't forget if you want a supermarket there is Farmer Charlies/Berties the Butcher/Sams Warehouse/Westower Tavern and Dan Murphys (all of which are huge) 10mins away (about 6kms) just where you get off at the ferry at the end of our road, or Big W, Coles, Woolies and IGA 15/20 mins away (about 12 kms). We are really well serviced for shops. Having just come back from a trip to Melbourne myself where everytime I got in the car to go anywhere and it took 1.5 hours to get anywhere due to the traffic, I think the 5 to 15 mins drive is very reasonable!!!

Our Cafe is open from 8.30am to 6pm Sunday to Thursday and our restaurant (our chef is fantastic) is open Friday and Saturday nights in non peak periods, and 7 days a week in peak periods.

We are definitely not a town experience, we are an eco beach away from the traffic noise (the Pacific Highway runs through Ballina, but you can't hear any traffic noise where we are) where it is very relaxing. While we are not a 5 star resort, we like to think we give you 5 star attention. I would describe our accommodation as fresh, clean and modern - however, we do have cheaper priced cabins that are older and in need of some 'love' via future modernisation - nonetheless they are priced as budget cabins, which of course there is a strong market for. If you have any questions, either my staff or myself personally will be only too happy to answer your every question. Remember your comfort and happiness is our concern.

This place is a gem! Really good cabin accommodation with excellent linen (I have a thing about linen), nice kitchen, BIG flat screen telly, Austar and all new and really well looked after. The place is just gorgeous - set on this huge, big white beach. We were there for a wedding, and want to come back just to camp. We saw wallabies, eagles, lots of dolphins and more whales than we could count!!! they had all this music and entertainmet going incluidng a flying trapeze (who would have known) as well as a really great jazz duo, and fire dancers. I did a yoga and meditation class while I was there - very ZEN OF ME!!! we gave it a 5.

The highlight of Ballina Beach Village for me is its proximity to a gorgeous beach that's part of a natural park. It takes four minutes by foot along a good track from the holiday park. And the river is even closer.. There's camping, and van sites but we stayed in a cabin. It wasn't fancy but covered the basics more than adequately being clean,and neat. My daughter loved the three bunk beds each with their own little windonw. She liked the pool but the beach was our preferred destination. The owners and staff were very welcoming.We will definitely be returning for either a weekend or a few days.
