Love the fact this caravan park is a very short walk to the beach. There’s a privately run cafe at the beach providing a good selection of food for breakfast, lunch and weekend dinners. I stayed in the self contained pink cabin and my only complaint would be the tiny ants that made an appearance every now and then. The RAID spray the proprietor used when I told him didn’t work. The pool is tired looking but still refreshing if you don’t want to swim at the beach. If relaxation is what you want then this may be the place for you though best to avoid school holidays if you don’t have kids.
This is a lovely out of the way spot in Bowen we have now unexpectedly stayed at twice. The facilities are very clean, tidy and the kitchen extremely well stocked with everything. It's quiet and very close to the water if you are a boaty and or fishing enthusiast. The only disappointment was the wifi, which for some of us is an important part of our camping adventures, especially looking for the next place to stop and explore, I could not get any good reception to use even though I was told there were 'boosters ' everywhere. Lovely people running the place too !!!
We decided that 4 of us would go to Bowen for one night and of course nobody wanted us for only one night. The last place I called was Horseshoe Bay Resort and to my surprise they said 'yes'. We arrived early and again were surprised that we could get the cabin. Also I was told that they had already made up the sofa bed. The Cabin is definitely one of the cleanest we have stayed in. Just perfect.
A lovely bay where this campground is sited. The pool area is very disappointing and uninviting, consequently, no one uses it. Communal areas are cleanish! The reception and office staff are pleasant enough. The sites at the front overlooking the beach are beautiful but can be windy. The best part of this camping ground is definitely the people- the other guests. Many of them are grey nomads who come every year to this park and they are the ones that make it so welcoming and friendly.
If you are planning a trip to the Whitsundays, make sure you visit Bowen and this beautiful hidden gem in Bowen, Horseshoe Bay Resort. Janelle was very friendly throughout our stay and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in one of the caravan sites with ocean view, site was perfect and my Mother in law's cabin was also immaculate and great value for the price we paid with an enormous bathroom. The views were spectacular across the bay and just across the road from the beach near walking trails, great snorkelling and swimming and the restaurants nearby were perfect as we did not feel like cooking. Bathrooms at the resort were very clean and great water pressure. I could not fault this place at all. Such a great family holiday and we will look forward to coming back again and again.…
We stayed a couple of nights on a powered van site. Not cement, but roomy. Good location & a nice little Cafe by the Beach. The pool was dirty & not cleaned whilst we were there. The shower was full of dirt & leaves, however a big sign saying "Always shower before entering the pool or Spa'. No sun lounges or sade. Very old & cracked tiles & cement. Better Caravan Parks in Bowen 🙏👍🤔
We tried this “resort” after friends had visited the area. The bay and surrounds are beautiful with a couple of other bays to visit close by. The resort caters for camping and caravans. It has several cabins and a small bank of motel type units and a pool. There is a sizeable cafe on site between the accommodation and the bay. This is where it went pear shaped. We booked a “bay view” cabin, at extra cost. On arrival we were taken to the accommodation, which was a few feet from the cafe. It was 2.30 on a Sunday. There was live music blasting from the outside (only) seating area. I was not happy but was reassured by the young lady it stopped at 4pm. It went till just before 6pm, closing time and apparently this happens every weekend. The cafe opens around 7am till 5pm weekdays and until 6pm weekends. The cabin was more glimpses of the bay rather than bay view and I certainly do not believe it warrants the extra paid. As per photos, when sat on the patio, we are almost outside the back doorway of the kitchen, which is open, with staff coming and going, for 10hrs per day. Other cabins, within a few meters away, are cheaper and no different to “bay view”. Some cabins are fully equipped with 2 burner electric stove, full size fridge, microwave, cutlery and cooking equipment, others not self contained. Our cabin (blue) was well appointed, very clean with air conditioning. The lady on reception was very nice and I handed over a list of a few things that I felt were needed to be added to the cabin when we were leaving. We left something behind and they were gracious enough to call and forward this to us. I do not have a problem with the staff, area or cabin itself, but absolutely do not believe this particular cabin (and the one next door) should have an extra charge for a really bad outlook. A warning of this would be good so you can make a decision where to stay within the park. We would certainly visit the area again but definitely not book the “bay view” cabins.…
Thank you to Janelle for looking after us - her attentiveness was very reassuring The Cabins are clean and very well positioned for a very beautiful spot The beach is one of the best we've seen Has wheelchair access
Horseshoe Bay is stunning and the Family cabins are fabulous. Everything looked shiny and new inside. Separate bedroom very comfy, an alcove with bunks for the kiddies and a good sized kitchen with full size fridge. Lovely deck with new outdoor furniture overlooking beautiful gardens and only steps to the beach. Great pool onsite and a great cafe just in front of the resort for brekky / lunch or coffee and cake :)
Stayed just the one night at this resort and was absolutely delighted with the service we were provided. We are budget backpackers so this is not a normal type of place for us but the service we were provided made it worth it. The staff on reception went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable. Decent basic cabins with a comfortable bed. Shower facilities offer privacy and are clean. Location is perfect with outstanding beaches and views within a few minutes away.
