Sorry to hear you had such a bad time. We had a great time with our 2 children. From the accomodation, facilities to the staff, we could'nt complain at all. To give you an example, I was able to leave my partner at the accomodation with our youngest child on several occasions while I took my eldest out for walks to the beach, to the park speaking with locals who never had a bad thing to say of the location, etc. We were treated well at Thou Walla by the staff and even used the BBQ area near the pool at night. No Balangalo State forest for us, just a three night blissful stay. I guess if you pick at every little thing and look for trouble, you will find it.

Hi All the glamping tents look over the water. Each tent has a fire and is quite warm but in July you might not get the weather to sit out on the balcony and watch the sunset!

"Make sure you don't get a remote bungalow like we did."
"Don't take valuables - there was no way to lock the tent up."
"Request a tent numbered 4 - 10. Tents 1 - 3 do not have a good aspect. I think tent # 10 has the most private aspect."
"The Glam Tents have superb views!"
"If people find walking difficult, they should ask for a lower level, eg the sunset or sunrise cabins. Views are good from most cabins."
