Stayed in a honeymoon spa cabin. Modern, clean and cosy. With a view too!

Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful!

Beautiful location with great facilities, good for a couple or families!

Take me back!

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend, and it was just amazing. We stayed in the Oceanview Bungalow, and it was perfect for the three of us that were staying there. Beds were very comfy, shower was fantastic! It has everything you could need - very impressed. And it is only a 5 minute drive into town, but far enough away to feel like a holiday retreat.
It is just a short walk down to Short Point Beach, and it's worth the walk, the view is breath taking.
The staff were so nice and friendly and responded quick to fix a broken light. I could not recommend this place highly enough.

So thank you Merimbula Beach Resort and Holiday Park, we will definitely be back!

We stayed on a powered site with a campervan. Great facilities and amenities. Plenty of kitchens, bbqs, tennis courts, games room with good new video games (including new ones). Plenty to do, and a fantastic beach. Recommend for all.

We stayed in a cliff top villa which was really quite lovely. The park is quite big and it looks like there are plenty of different accommodation options to suit everyone. The park really does seem quite geared up to catering to families and there is lots for kids to do to keep them amused.

The villa was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Although the bathroom light didn't work, we informed reception but it still hadn't been fixed when we left the next day. Apart from that everything was pretty good. It would be even better if the tree's out the front of the cliff top villa's could be trimmed down a little, the view out over Short Point Beach would be simply amazing!

Although we stayed as a couple and it was quite good, I would definitely recommend this park more to families.

We stayed 2 nights in the 2 bedroom "The Point" cliffside villa. Fabulous location with sweeping uninterrupted views east and north over the ocean and along the beach. And quiet too, apart from the relaxing roar of the surf on the beach and the rock platform below us.

The villa is comfortable for 2 or even 4, although (given the high price) it would be an unpleasantly tight fit for any length of stay if the second bedroom was fully occupied (it has a double bed plus 2 bunks in the same space). Six in that size of villa sharing a single bathroom and toilet would only work for quite short stays. It is well equipped for self-catering, if everything worked....

While the villa was clean and the whole resort park was obviously very well maintained, it was disappointing that the gas heater did not work beyond the base setting. The fact that there was a notice on the wall about this problem indicated that this was obviously not a short-term thing and so it was doubly disappointing that we were not advised on check-in. Given the high price charged and the season, surely a supplementary or replacement heater could have been installed. Similarly the dishwasher did not work - not a big problem for us over 2 nights, however. We put up with these glitches given our short stay and the weather being milder than predicted, but really not good enough for the price.

Overall an enjoyable stay, but certainly not good value for money.

Room Tip: The villas looking over the beach and along the cliffside are well situated

Thank you for your feedback.

The type of accommodation in which you stayed is fitted with a reverse cycle air conditioner which will comfortably and economically warm the villa during the cooler months, particularly through late afternoon and into the night. Every attempt is made to ensure the appliances in all facilities are in working order prior to a guest checking in, however a team of experienced maintenance staff and spare appliances are always available to replace faulty items that may be discovered by guests. Should you choose to visit one of NRMA’s Holiday Parks again, please don’t hesitate to advise Reception of any shortfalls you may find for immediate rectification.

Kind Regards,

Annika
Guest Relations Manager

We stayed for 3 nights in an ocean view spa villa. On the positive side, the resort is in a wonderful location with some camp sites and cabins having water views. The grounds of the resort are immaculate and clean, as are the facilities. It has everything you need ... 3 pools, games room, tennis court (only $5 to hire including racquets/balls), volleyball, jumping pillow, plenty of areas to cook food, cafe , free wi-fi, TV room, the list goes on. I think if you were camping this would be the best park. Plus you have the sound of the ocean to go to sleep to!

Our cabin was very private and spacious. It had views of the ocean/beach and, as it faced north, it had plenty of sun on the covered verandah. It had everything you needed for a great holiday.

Merimbula itself is a lovely little town with a terrific boardwalk around the ocean inlet. We saw a seal, stingray, plenty of crabs and other creatures. You must also go to bar beach kiosk and have a coffee with a view! (Note that this kiosk closes in winter)

On the negative side, the beds are average and our cabin was a bit grotty. It is also a bit dated. If it had been cleaner and newer I would have given this place 5/5. It appears some areas are cleaned well, but some parts had not had a good clean for a while. When I pulled back the sheets I found 3 different hairs! A first I thought the sheets hadn't been changed, but I think they had. Maybe their laundering isn't very good??

Anyway I got over it and ended up having a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the ocean views.

Thanks for taking the time to provide your great feedback to us.

We totally agree with you about the beautiful location with such amazing views. Many people comment about how nice it is to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean!

It sounds like our holiday park had everything you needed during your holiday - with its huge range of facilities and private cabin accommodation.

I'm sorry to hear that the beds were average and you were not satisfied with the level of cleaning. We would love to address this asap and encourage guests to notify of these oversights so we can rectify them as soon as possible. We are sorry and will definitely look into the laundry process.

Thanks for staying with us and we look forward to you and your family returning to the park again.

Regards,

Annika
