young family 5 day stay

Port Stephens wonderful place to visit (reasonable priced dolphin cruises in nelson bay a must do). The Retreat was a nice budget options, place clean and nice and quite. Hot water ran out quite quick but assume is standard for cabin accomadation. reception staff helpful. Need a car if staying here as nothing really walking distance but by car easy enough to get around.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful quiet location

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Was perfect for what we were there for. Highly recommend.

Pros: The beautiful surroundings. Was stress free

Location: Close to where we had to be

Stayed 2 nights in Feb. 2018


Dog friendly cabin.

Booked a dog friendly cabin only to be given one that wasn't. Had to pay $80 clean up fee and move ourselves to dog friendly cabin the next morning.The eco friendly cabin certainly was that with ants and cockroaches in the bathroom and kitchen. When you tried to escape these you couldn't open the screen door - door handle jams. Cover on remote control kept falling off and shower screen rails were rusty and dated.This was disappointing as we were staying there to be near a engagement party but this experience has turned us off wanting to stay there for the wedding. Also when we arrived there was a naked man and drunk blokes hanging around the barbecue area and making lots of noise.

Pros: The size of the park and the setting and closeness to the beach.

Cons: Correct booking procedures, repaired problems and updated facilities. Staff could be more approachable.

Location: Close to dog friendly beach and views of sand dunes. Nice places to eat - " the Crest" restaurant and pizza shop.
