Spent our final night of 21 day holiday here. We were in a motorhome. The host was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The site was clean, well laid out with good facilities. Close to the airport but with the feeling of staying on a family site. Very popular. Highly recommended.

Location was convenient, as we arrived very late. Keys were availtable but to our surprise there were no towels in the rooms. Good low budget option but a few issues to iron out. We had to rent out out the towels from the motel in the morning which was ok, but was head ache for those wanted to freshen up...

Only $100 for a chalet for the night, room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Was recommended by a family member. They even took me to the airport in my own car and looked after my car (no charge) until i got back from my holiday. There just isn't service around like this very often these days. Would stay again and...

We booked just a one bedroom chalet, found it to be clean, modern & comfortable. Great price too. Playground on site for the kids and motel units available if you are wanting a bit more space, but the chalet was fine for my hubby & I and our 2 preschoolers :) really friendly staff too!
