Lovely holiday. It's a shame that kids were allowed to ride scooters up and down the roads on the site. Bit dangerous, as they are underage and riding the wrong way. Food at the boathouse was expensive. Apart from that, a lovely park, with excellent facilities and surroundings.

We had a fantastic time this time around at Coopers Beach. We have visited several times before and I have to say that the cleanliness and the service all round has really improved. Our caravan was a little small for an 8 berth, I think it’s the smallest one we’ve stayed at there but it was absolutely immaculate when we arrived. We were made to feel at home by the staff especially Frank, who was fantastic. He was very kind, funny and helpful to us all, thank you Frank. Our food service could have been better due to the app not working or food being out of stock but what we did have was very nice and we didn’t have as long wait times as we’ve previously had there. The entertainment was good, thank you for entertaining the little ones. The outdoor pool on the hottest days of the year was an absolute dream, we loved it and went there daily.
We didn’t want to leave Coopers Beach and we will most certainly be back very soon. Thank you to everyone who made our week a great one.
