Glamping Because I Hate Camping!

I am NOT a camper! I thought that this was the next best thing but it exceeded my expectations! The bed was soooo comfortable! Having our own shower and toilet was bliss. The ceiling fan was useful when there was no wind to cool the tent down. Most of the time the breezes made things very comfortable. Breakfast was included which is always a bonus. The lobster tacos, for lunch, are a delicious must! There were plenty of staff and they were always friendly and helpful. The only problem was the WiFi which didn't always work. Highly recommend anyone to go there! Next time we'll upgrade to a bigger tent with a small kitchen. Ours didn't have a fridge so we took an esky/fridge.

Fantastic location, well looked after facility and enjoyable stay

Would be good to have heating in room, was extremely cold at night during our stay. Maybe some netting to control seagulls when eating at restaurant and access to an ice machine within the restaurant would be be great too :)
