Hi Denstrip We really appreciate you taking the time to review your stay with us and for the recommendation of our park. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us in our Waterfront Villas. They are our most popular cabins because of their fantastic location overlooking Loders Creek and the Broadwater. With the parks location we are very lucky, especially with the public transport at our front door making it so easy for travellers to get around to all of the amazing locations and attractions nearby. We are very sorry about the lights, if we had known we would have endeavoured to fix the problem straight away. Thank you for your feedback about the villas and possible improvements, we will definitely consider them as we are always striving to improve our park and maximise our guests experience. We hope that your kids had lots of fun on the giant jumping pillow, playground and our pools. We look forward to welcoming you into our park again next time you are on the Gold Coast! Kind regards Broadwater Tourist Park

Thank you for your enquiry! Our pools are heated from May to October and are set to a beautiful 26 degrees, making it enjoyable to swim even in the middle of winter. Yes we have lots for the children to do!! We have a giant jumping pillow, a playground, a tennis court, a recreation room full of arcade games and other games, pedal bikes to hire and of course our two pools. And if all of that doesn't keep them busy, then our fantastic location right on the water and being within walking distance of Australia Fair should definitely suffice! We hope to have you and your family stay with us!
