Family vacation

Pros: the room was well set up and the park had many great activities for us and our kids
Cons: the staff but nothing else
Location: so much to do in Alice springs, we went to Simpsons gap, palm valley and many other locations that are beautiful.
when arrived i was greeted with abrupt and grumpy staff that where upsetting a person that was trying to book a room before me. after the staff did not help this lady she went outside to book a room at the very park online.... enough of that check in was 2 pm and i arrived at 3 and was informed could not go in to the park and to park my car outside the park as they had no were for me to go and quote " we have had a busy week so ohwell" apart from that we had a villa and the room was lovely, the facilities of the park where very good and the kids loved it there

Good value, great for families

We stayed in a cabin for a very fair price for two nights. So much for our children to do, nice sized cabin. Very happy with our stay.

Great for families

Our sons (aged 14 & 11) were rapt with this place. They spent hours in the pool & games room and on the jumping pilliows, basketball court & go karts leaving us to enjoy the plentiful birdlife and laid back outback vibe.The villas are close together but still manage to feel private. Ours (no. 14) was spotlessly clean, adequately equipped & well situated near the bbq's & pool.

Stayed in an ensuite cabin

Pros: The cabin comfort
Cons: Cleaning of the carpet,ensure previous guests clean all the utensils and fix up the maintenance issues.
The cabin was in need of some cleaning particularly the carpet and some kitchen utensils were left dirty. There was a bad smell emanating from the drainage breather in the ensuite and one of the knobs was missing on the oven cooktop. A full size fridge was provided with all the necessary equipment including a toaster all in good working order. We were very disappointed that on arriving at 2 pm. to check in that our cabin was not ready and we were asked if we could find something to do and to come back in half an hour. This is a very busy park on the outskirts of town with many cabins and caravan sites and good facilities in the park.

Pros: Clean and comfortable.
Cons: The front desk attendant's attitude and a better system for the pool access bands for kids.
We found every aspect of this accommodation fantastic and well above our expectation. The staff are generally a pleasure to deal with. Crystal clear and clean pools. We had one dislike and that was the attitude of the front desk attendant in relation to wrist bands for the pool and her harshness towards the kids in relation to the same. We were advised if they tear or damage them they would not get another. I question why? Our 9.5 year old son fell down and tore his plastic band. when he approached the front desk with his 15 year old cousin, they received an attitude and disbelief from the attendant. Other than this the rest was perfect.
