Mark and Di.

Spent the first week of a 7 week trip north at First Sun. What a great place to start from! Amenities great, security personnel on the ball, and staff always helpful. Assistant/Managers Lincoln and Nat were awesome. Would have to say these guys are only to willing to assist in any way and do so with absolute courtesy and professionalism. Made our stay a delight. So much so will make it our last stop before home. Highly recommended.

I have stayed at First Sun a few times. The camping is really expensive for just the small bit of land but you pay for the location I guess. I suggest getting a camp site near the end. There is a security person roaming tthe area as well so at about 9 or 10 you have to be a lot quieter. Bathrooms and BBQ area are clean. Lodging is very small but again, you pay for the location. The cabins were amazing. I loved my stay there. It's fairly expensive but I can't wait to book another stay at the cabin sites. It is again fairly small but very clean and everything is walking distance (beach, bars, resturants, shops, etc). Staff were always friendly.

Have stayed at the First Sun Holiday Park now twice and both stays we had the same problem.
We always go down with a group of about 4-6 families and stay in the lodges, i think the accomm is fine and clean same with the bathrooms. The undercover bbq area was disgusting, the tables were filthy, you wouldnt dare put anything in the fridge as looked like it hadnt been cleaned in years. the pathways covered in leaves. just very slack on the maintenance.
My biggest problem with all of us was the STAFF, ive never met anyone so rude, its suppose to be a holiday destination, all i can say is girls you need to SMILE more lifes not that bad or guess what, get another job, maybe where your not dealing with people.

Room Tip: if your after the lodges go with the one where you share the bathroom as the lodges with ensuites ha...

Check-in staff were very friendly and helpful. Stayed in one of the ensuite lodges. They were quite small but clean and functional. Location was perfect, close to the beach and right beside the bars and restaurants.

Hi Donna, Thank you for your positive feedback. We do have the refurbishment of the camp kitchen on our agenda however this is difficult to do throughout the summer months. We look forward to seeing you again soon and trust you are able to continue to enjoy all facilities we have to offer.

We stayed only one night and found it to be very comfortable and clean.

We stayed in a lodge. It was quite small but comfortable after riding on a motorbike for hours!

Can't complain but I suppose it was a tad overpriced...

Stayed for 3 nights. There are no BBQs by the beach, they are just grill plates. We stayed in a lodge and the toilet and shower were combined so everything was wet and damp as it took a long time to dry out. The rooms are small and the facilities very basic. Wifi is temperamental and you are only given a set amount of wifi time for free. Wouldn't stay again, rooms are too pokey to be comfortable- and it was expensive for what was on offer. The positive is its central to Byron bay- but Byron isn't that big anyway so everything is in walking distance.
