I stayed in a cabin for 2 nights. On arrival the gentleman at reception was rather cold and distant, pointing out that this was no party place, even though we were far from partying age. You can certainly tell that the area is branded from schoolies and backpackers.
The cabin I stayed in was pretty clean, but very poorly equipped and very simple.
It is located in a great spot only a short walk to the beach and the city centre.

Good for a couple of nights, if you are simply after a place to sleep and plan to eat out.

Stayed there for two nights. Camping is one thing with a camper/caravan. However the so called deluxe cabins are small with a big S. The beds are small....really...very difficult for two adults to sleep on. For self cooking, the equipment could definitely be better. OK for a coupla nights, just to chill out and don't expect any great comforts.Otherwise clean, a distance from the beach...so if you are a beach bum then this is not the place. The staff is not clued up about local attractions so do not expect any guidance in that direction.

Room Tip: Like I said, ok for a couple of nights. No great service, and terrible beds.

Only stayed the one night in a suite, but it was very clean. The whole place was beautiful and spotless.
Have to mention the super friendly staff and they allowed an early check in which was really appreciated. Good facilities and laundry. Would highly recommend.

The guy on reception was very welcoming and helpful. The park was very well maintained and lovely and quiet. Our cabin was spotless with all that you need. We only had one night there, but would go back if we had the chance.

Staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, rooms are charming. I stayed in a small cabin and it is great for couples or 2 single people. There is no room service but they are happy to provide you with anything replacement should you require. Place is quiet for those looking for staying away from noise and parties. A great place to stay.

Handy to town while being far enough away to be quiet and relaxing...
Friendly, professional staff make the stay most enjoyable. Would certainly stay there again and recommend to others to do the same...
The only disappointment was that we were only there for one night.
Next time in Byron I know where I will be staying.."Glen Villa Resort"

We stayed as a young couple in a studio cabin. It was lovely! Great price and close to the main part of Byron, but far enough away so as you could get some sleep. The pool was quite small but nice and relaxing, plus was never busy either. It's also about a 5 minute walk to the beach and shops. The room was a good size and the staff were amazing! They even let us use the facilities after we checked out because we went dolphin kayaking on our last day. Would definitely stay again, Byron is one of my favourite places so far.
