Cabins were too close together with little outdoor seating area provided (no deck), shower head dripped all night keeping us awake, there was no TV antennae connected so watching TV was difficult and there was a lack of power points to use my laptop which needed charging. I had to stand at the kitchen bench to use my laptop while it charged up!

We had a waterfront villa and absolutely loved it! Right on the beach! The park has so many facilities and great for kids. Will definitely be coming back again! The only suggestion is making the kids pool a little heated.

Thank you for your review!

Poorly maintained ensuit cabin. Faulty TV which was checked once by staff but then more problems occurred and made it impossible to watch. I rang reception again but no one came to look at or replace TV even though I was told they would. Waited until 9.45pm in silence before I gave up and went to bed. Couldn't read as there were no bedside lights which were shown in pictures of the room. Also only 3 of the 11 windows had privacy curtains so had to keep curtains closed and felt closed in. Window above main bed lets light in directly on your face so no chance of a sleep in although unlikely anyway because the cabin is very close to a busy road. The cabin has beds for 5 people but is far too small for a family. Even a couple would be uncomfortable in the double bed trying to keep out of the light through the window. I didn't get much sleep even on my own. On the plus side the cabin was clean and the pool and cafe looked good. But I won't stay here again.

Hi Katrina, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your review. We are aware that some of our accommodation need a bit of a facelift, and we have works scheduled in for 2019. Over the last few years we have been upgrading our facilities and accommodations, these things take time... We can only hope that you will give us another chance in the future.

Arrived late afternoon and left early morning so didn't get to use many of their wonderful water facilities- both pool and riverside. Wish I was a kid again and could stay a few nights. We did take a walk to Yamba point and watched a couple of help us of whales and dolphins putting on a show not far past the breaking waves as they headed south. As the path out was closed we accessed the point from the beach to the south.. Wonderful.
