“Two bedroom villa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

My husband and I found the new looking villa very clean, large, comfortable and it had a full kitchen with oven, which we like as we like to cook our own meals. There was a separate bathroom and toilet, which is a great idea. The second bedroom had two sets of bunk beds. The position of the villas was great, overlooking manicured lawns, a very nice outlook, which we could also enjoy sitting on the balcony. The staff were friendly and helpful. We found our stay relaxing and enjoyable.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Stayed just one night in a park cabin as part of a longer road-trip.

This is a beautiful Big4 holiday park - manicured lawns and gardens, great sites, modern cabins, and very good additional facilities (ablution block / laundry / camp kitchen / BBQ area / etc) - it can't be faulted.

Management were very helpful in every way.

It is located 10km south of Yeppoon main street, but this is not really an issue in the sense that Yeppoon is just one town along this very attractive coastline. Only 3km from the ferry terminal to Great Keppell Island, for example.

We would recommend this holiday park highly for anyone - caravanners, campervanners, and those in cars seeking park cabins.

Room Tip: Not really close to a major supermarket, so stock up with food and drink in Yeppoon prior to arrival...

We booked in for one night as a spur of the moment decision the day before, so glad we chose here. The kids had a ball, it was just unfortunate that we were there such a short time. We were in a deluxe family cabin which seemed new and was lovely and clean. All the staff were friendly and accommodating, they even turned the water slide on for the kids (even though it was freezing! Crazy kids) We will definitely be back, hopefully for longer next time. Thank you Big4

Room Tip: The Deluxe Family cabins are fantastic, clean and modern.

The staff were cranky with the kids. It was Easter and there were loads of kids. The amenities block was never clean. The bins were over flowing. The kids loved the great pool and slide. The movies each night were great with fantastic tiered seating. Beautiful grass to camp on.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our park.
During the peak times we have a cleaning schedule that has the amenities swept by maintenance in the morning. They then get a general clean at 8:30 - 9:30 by our cleaners and a full clean between 12 and 2 in the afternoon. Apart of the problem stems from the younger children not being supervised by some parents therefore they do tend to play in the amenities creating a bit of a mess with toilet paper and paper towels. We have reviewed our cleaning process to see how it can be made more effective, we also have signs near the amenities that state that younger children must be accompanied by an adult.
To address the bins, we have them emptied 2 times a day during peak times and also provide extra bins in the park to cater for the high volume of people. We take on board all feedback to improve the parks policies and procedures.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

We arrived a day early - which was fine and staff were very accommodating. However, as my partner put it, it feels like the barracks. We have travelled extensively with Big4 and this by far the most disappointing and dirtiest of all. We found ants/bugs in the bedding, the 2 single couches are worn and grubby, you wouldn't buy them from a tip shop. This is the first park in Queensland of the Big4 group with no fans.... We paid $108 p/n for this unsatisfactory overpriced rate. Our plan is to approach reception in the morning and check out a night early and find clean accommodation.
We have enjoyed Big4's membership up until now. I hope this falls on the appropriate people and also hope you have enjoyed the comments, we don't recommend it.

Great facilities, friendly staff, our kids had a ball. Would recommend to anyone, very clean and well managed, close to beaches and a lot of things to do inside the park. Also close to Keppel Bay Marina for a quick trip to nearby islands.

Room Tip: Get a site with shade in the summer.

We stayed in our motor home on a site near the camp kitchen and pool. Contrary to previous reviews we found the park to be exceptional. From the staff through to the spotless amenities we could not fault this location. It was what we expected and nothing more, being a top4 site. Although only staying 4 nights we wished be stayed longer. The fishing at the nearby estuary was great as well, as was the market. Make sure you stay with the Capricorn Palms when passing through Mulambin. Pass the word, the bush telegraph of the grey nomads is strong.
