“Beautiful Benderloch.”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Stayed in one of The Willows Lodges for our first ever trip here. My brother had been many times and always spoke highly of this site so we thought we'd give it a go. We were not disappointed . The lodge was warm and comfortable and excellently equipped . We loved the fact that it was such a quiet, peaceful place to have a relaxing holiday. A twenty minute walk along the beach took us to the pink shop and the lovely Ben Lora cafe. So much to do in the area too and not very far from Oban. We managed a trip to Seil Island, Mull, and Oban. We climbed Ben Lora, walked in Sutherland Grove and visited the nearby Sealife Centre. All in all a fabulous week. Staff were very friendly and helpful too. Hope to visit again in the future.

Room Tip: Lodges around the lake have peaceful settings.

We've been going to Tralee Bay for about 10 years and have always enjoyed our holiday there. We've recently returned from a week there and found the lodge tired. The wallpaper was ripped in numerous places, the furniture was badly scratched, the sofas were sunk in the middle, the steps were broken as you entered the lodge, bulbs missing on interior lights and generally tired decor. The cleanliness is still spot on though.

On our early arrival I was greeted by a member of staff at the reception who wasn't very helpful. We asked if we could get in before 4.00pm and were told 'you'll be lucky'. We had been in the car for 10hours and asked to go onto the beach, which they let us do. After a walk on the beach we sat in our car by the cabin at around 2.30pm, another member of staff told us we putting the cleaner under pressure by waiting. So we headed for a coffee, another hour in the car! They had our mobile and were supposed to ring us when ready, they never did! We also had a changeover after a week into another cabin which we reminded them of mid week. On the changeover day we had someone knocking on the door asking if we were leaving because we should have been out by 9.30am, I reminded him that we were supposed be in another lodge not leaving! He returned later to say that we were correct and that our new lodge would be ready around 11.00am. It wasn't it was 12.15pm and a day had almost gone, we had only got 3 booked.

For five days we looked out of or lodge at a jcb digger and a dumper truck digging trees out of the ground. This noise carried on until 6.30pm some evenings as well as listening to a strimmer!

Not a very restful holiday and the staff should communicate with each other. Sorry to say after many good holidays at Tralee this was our last.

Booked this lodge after excellent customer service and assistance from reception staff. The lodge (Islay) was right on the beach front with excellent views over to oban. Excellent equipped modern kitchen with dishwasher. Was great to come across this secure park with no " club" or commercialisation at all, bliss. Some areas of lodge were discussed direct with staff who are very proffesional. Hope to return.

My family of 4 have stayed at Tralee Bay twice. Once during a summer two week stay followed by another week at Easter. Had a woods lodge both times. Absolutely fab. Quality of accommodation was excellent. Very comfortable with everything we needed to quickly feel at home. A well stocked kitchen meant we could cook easily and the dishwasher helped keep time spent in the kitchen to a minimum . I'm really fussy but couldn't fault the cleanliness overall. Kitchen storage, utensils,appliances etc were immaculate as we're the bathrooms. Three rooms meant both my kids had a room each. Lounge was spot on. Very comfortable with tv and DVD. Small touches like a very informative brochure helped us get to know the area and plan trips with ease .

The site itself is top notch. The beach is lovely and a real bonus. Staff were so helpful when needed. We had only a couple of occasions to ask for assistance. Once to help work out heating and another an issue with tv . Had help within minutes and both issues quickly resolved. Really friendly and pleasant too . The site is well positioned - lots to do. Would not hesitate to recommend. Oban is about 8 miles away and used coop or telco for supplies.. Go and enjoy....we will definitely return .

Tralee Bay holiday park is amazing! We stayed in a 4 berth caravan, it was perfect! Was so spacious with everything that you could possibly need. It was spotless when we arrived. The park itself offers a complete getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, so peaceful and beautiful, ponds, walks its own beautiful beach, chip shop, really could not fault it and am looking forward to going back next year!

Room Tip: The 4 berth caravans are perfect for a couple looking for a quiet getaway.

We booked very last minute because we decided to join family who were staying in the 'Hispania' lodge. The only availability was a basic 4 berth caravan, so we weren't expecting it to be anything special. However, every aspect of the park was first class! The owner was helpful and friendly, the caravan was exceptionally clean with everything you would need also the fixtures and furnishings were modern and in good repair. The location of the park is superb, beautiful views and beach!

The lodge was also of the same high standard.
