“Very tired”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

Visited Bowen in Jan and must be the end of their season? Staff very average, not welcoming or pleasant. Choose a site with an ensuite very dirty and run down. Very disappointing for our first trip to this town.

Room Tip: We have a slide on camper so not sure what the on site accommodation is like or the other amenities.

Morag P, Owner at Tropical Beach Caravan Park, responded to this review, 17 January 2013
We are sorry that the reviewer found her site not up to standard . Although our ensuites and amenitites are dated we do strive to keep them clean and tidy and in good working order. We do plan to renovate the amenities and ensuites in the future. Most of our customers on departure comment on how clean and tidy the Park is so we are always concerned when a customer is not happy. A customer who departed on the same day came to thanked us for how lovely and well maintained the Park, pool, bbqs, gardens etc were and on how friendly and helpful everybody was.

The cabin section of our Park is rated 4 star and unlike the ensuites and amenities these are recent additions and are modern, clean and stylish with great balconies with ocean views.

Its a shame the reviewer who arrived after closing time and left early the next day didnt get a chance to notice how really great our Park is.

We strive to keep

I have just come back from my second trip to Tropical Beach Caravan Park. In both cases I stayed in a luxury cabin whilst friends had a caravan site. This is definitely the best caravan park we have seen in FNQ. The cabin accommodation is in excellent condition and the balcony views direct out to sea are divine. The caravan sites are well positioned and the whole park is very clean and tidy. There are excellent BBQ and picnic facilities - and direct beach access. Sitting out front we saw turtles, dolphins and more. The management are very attentive and they maintain a relaxing and peaceful environment. It is very popular and often busy so I would advise booking well ahead. I will definitely be back.

This is a smallish caravan park right on the beach. The sites are quite tight but has palms bushes between sites for privacy. The toilets and showers have a lot to be desired, not nearly enough for the costantly booked out caravan park. They are old some with just concrete floors, some toilets do not have hand basin or soap or paper towel. They are cleaned every day but need updating badly. Lucky we have our own shower and toilet. The owners are very strict with dogs, must be on a leash at all times or pack up and move out. We were told harshly not to come back, because we walked our small dog from the caravan to the car without a lead when we were leaving. The other caravaners go there year after year and take up the park up to 7 months in some cases. The beach there is not really very nice, but they have a lovely lawn area overlooking beach where everyone sits and meets for drinks or BBQ and watch the sunset. People are a bit clicky because they know eachother very well and practically run the park, but friendly enough if you go down onto the lawn area. Have been to much better van parks for $33.00 per night, but ok.
