The first time we had stayed in a cabin on this type of site, but it was very comfortable, and very reasonably priced. The cabin was spacious, and room for four more guests if necessary, in a separate room with two sets of bunk beds. The double bed with ocean view was very comfortable.There was comfortable lounge seating in the... More

Travelling with a sports team & finding accommodation for all is difficult but the beautiful, sleeps 10 new baches here were perfect. Rooms were light, airy, very clean and had all the things you needed for a weekend stay. The big bonus was two showers and 2 toilets. I would highly recommend staying here if you have a large group.

We stayed 2 nights on a sea view campsite in a caravan which had a stunning view, the staff were helpful and friendly, although mother nature didn't play ball and it was abit windy the weekend was relaxing & rejuvenating which was just what we needed. Looking forward to going back again in the near future, this Resort has clean... More

This is a lovely clean very appealing camp. It must be beautiful in the summer. The set up for the kitches and ablutions is top rate. The price of $50 a night for 2 for a powered campervan site is on the higher end but really is a lovely spot. Showers were free for 7 minutes. Ask for a site... More

We had a very friendly welcome which was great. The location is also brilliant. We stayed in their best beachfront villa (called beachfront bliss I think). It was right on the beach and you could hear the waves at night which I love. The bathroom was lovely but the room itself, whilst spacious, was average AND smelt of something terrible.... More
