Great spot for a family caravan adventure - the facilities are clean and there's plenty of toilets and showers. BBQ areas and vending machines on offer also. The park shop has lots on offer in case you forget anything and open hours are long. Handy if you don't want to venture far into Labrador or surrounds. 2 pools with shade...

Didn't get the cabin we were promised. Cabin we got wasn't up to scratch. Door was hard to open. Mould in the bathroom, kids beds weren't made and mai bedroom door doesn't shut. Park itself is lovely. Cabin is not.

Great location with easy access to a great walking path along the Broadwater and very good water access for kayaks - also several excellent boat ramps. Close to transport to Surfers Paradise. Great swimming pool with partial shade cover. Staff are particularly helpful. Perfect park for families. Hope to be back for Commonwealth Games next year.

Enjoyed our short stay. Northern shower & toilet block clean, although shower cubicles are not very wide and bench is narrow. Grounds men not unfriendly but not overly friendly. Really nice spot and would definitely be coming back, although with our van we would ask for a north facing site in order to keep the sun off the fridge vent...

We booked in on a ensuite site. The site was a good size and the ensuite very clean. The caravan park is well situated and is close to a large shopping centre (Australia Fair) as well as approximately 4 kilometres to SeaWorld theme park and 5 kilometers to the main shopping area in Surfers Paradise. We found the office staff...

All facilities are cleaned daily. Caravan sites are mowed before the next guest arrives. Park is close to Australia Fair and with a $10 tourist pass you can use the buses and trams for a day which makes it very easy to get around.. Beats driving..

We stayed for a couple of days on an ensuite site - it was spacious (both the site and the ensuite. The park is well maintained, & very clean. The pool was lovely and shaded but was too warm and gave no relief on our 30+ days in February. It would have been nice to have some shade trees around...

The thing about this Park is that you get value for money in a great, central location with great views. The people staying across the water at the Palazzo Versace are paying a huge amount more for the same view. We have stayed here in a de-luxe cabin, on an en-suite site and an ordinary powered site. Everything is well...
