We only stayed one night but we found the units very clean and the desk staff very helpful and friendly. We had lunch and breakfast the following morning at The Boat Ramp Cafe and the food was very good and the pricing was the cheapest we have found for a long time. We actually stopped on our return journey to...

This place serves a $5 and it is busy but terrific value! Good service and couldnt ask for a better deal. Lots of bacon, 2 eggs tomato and heaps of toast. We came here twice as we were staying down the road. I had corn fritters for $7.90 the 3nd morning and theybwere good too.

We have stayed here before and it was great...putt putt movies jumping bag and much more. Now the developers have taken hold and destroyed this. We were not told on the website about changes to this place so I feel ripped off beyond belief. I WANT MY MONEY BACK! I bet I don't get it

I'm sorry that you were disappointed. Unfortunately we are no longer a caravan park and the direction of the park has changed. Our website does state that development is happening on site and certainly does not advertise putt putt or jumping pillows. We do have a large heated lagoon pool, tennis court, BBQ areas and family friendly cafe. We also...

Having previously stayed here twice before, we were looking forward to another stay as the kids had loved the putt putt, jumping pillow, ping pong, basketball hoop, tennis court, playground, and free movies. Pulled into the carpark only to discover it had ALL been dimolished!! Only the pool survived. We were not told. Would not have stayed if we knew,...

Gateway lifestyle opposite the Maroochy River was, once a caravan park,but now a retirement village, but that's not all, there are a quite a few studio and even two bedroom chalets that are rented out to the general public so it is very unique in its mixture of retirees, Mums and Dads and children. The rooms are well furnished with...

We booked a 2bdrm spa cabin here some weeks ago after doing a lot of research. Room good, size good. Clean and well furnished. This is not what the poor rating is based on. Upon arrival we noticed it was very retiree orientated and the tennis court we had greatly anticipated on using with out 7yo was covered in puddles...

Thank you for your feedback regarding our park. I apologise that you were disappointed with the facilities. It is true that Gateway Lifestyle Maroochy is undergoing development which includes the upgrading of the pond and nature walk, the tennis court and the play area. The pond is currently cordoned off for safety reasons whilst the board walk is being replaced....

We stayed in an open plan cabin, which was the 3rd Cabin from the road. The Cabin was reasonable but unfortunately a bit too noisy when trying to sleep and the blinds weren't block out so rooms were quite light also when trying to sleep. The bed was too hard and pillows were too thin which made it very uncomfortable....

We booked and stayed in an Open-Plan King Studio cabin and loved it. We found the cabin spacious, very clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was provided. The cabin had a lovely big shower and a decent sized bathroom with a separate toilet. Although it looks like there may be some construction happening nearby soon, we found it quite and...

Stayed there as part of a group. Rooms in little chalets were great. Clean. Great activities for families and a good pool. Best thing of all tho was the little restaurant there.
