          Great resort for Camping. Very friendly service. Activities was great for kids, and the new heated undercover pool is very good even going into winter. Bathrooms very clean, but dont forget to maintain as need some repairs.

          With private ablutions, very spacious stands and top class facilities, activities and warm welcome, Sondela is a must for everyone. Our grand daughters (4 & 6) had a blast. No doubt that we will visit again.

          The campsites are very small, but it was lovely to have a private ablution. Setting up and dismantling tents was a breeze with the help from willing staff. The continual traffic noise from the freeway is disturbing, but we got used to it very quickly...More
