We stayed 3 nights in a catamaran villa. It was great!! Clean and tidy. Full equipped kitchen. However, there are not enough pots and pans to cook a proper meal. I would recommend to anyone who looks for comfort!

This place is amazing . The location and setting of the villas is so relaxing and tropical you would think you're on a tropical island. The villas are always clean and inviting. This place will get 5 stars if it had a swimming pool but the sparkling beach across the road compensates for that. We will always keep coming here.

We had a great time during our 5-day stay. Your camping amenities were very satisfactory and your location is excellent. The beach is just across the road, walking tracks everywhere and other Bays (Nelson, Salamander) are just a few minutes drive.

We stayed at the hotel for a 3 day family holiday. We chose the location as the beach is across the road. We stayed in a cabin and it was nice and clean, and had all the requirements nowadays. The park was clean and the staff were friendly. The other guests at the location were also friendly. The only thing...

Great site, close to beaches, restaurants and shops. We were located on the back end of the park near the waste disposal section. A bit of a far walk to amenities for families with kids. Overall it was a fantastic stay and loved the park

Cabins are $150 off season, but with two usable bedrooms this became reasonable as a share. Central to surf/NelsonBay and with excellent beach on doorstep. No problems with facilities - limited shade but it's plentiful next door.

Shoal Bay was extremely helpful with our stay. We arrived on a public holiday weekend and they were sold out but offered to ring around other nearby parks to find a place for us. As they were doing this someone else cancelled so we got a place. Good facilities and clean amenities
