I stayed for a week and loved being away from all crowds of Brisbane and Gold Coast. Feeding the birds and ducks, you can paddle or kayak around the lake watch the turtles. Mini Putt putt, golf, I walked to the Hinz Dam which took only 30 mins one way, walk along the spillway then had a lovely lunch. The...

We went out to the dam. Stopped in and had lunch. Great relaxed spot and lunches were great. Kids can play and you can relax. Ignore that it looks old and call that charm. If you are out at the dam for a look and want lunch then worth stopping in. Bring a few $ coins and the kids will...

Peaceful and relaxing accomodation, but close to the theme parks and Gold Coast theme parks, or whatever tourist activity you have in mind. Two parents and young adult children were able to spend a few days together. Comfortable accomodation and activities and pool / spa at the resort made our stay even more enjoyable. Thank you

Had a wonderful time at Cedar Lake. Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant had lovely food. Very family friendly orientated resort. The kids loved all the turtles in lake and the ducks and geese and kangaroos that were around in the morning's and afternoon.

This is a resort 20kms from the gold coast. If you have a car this is no problem and it is good to sleep away from the hustle and bustle. The units are well equipped and comfortable without being glamorous.The swimming pool is excellent and the array of free activities are more than enough. It is a good place to...

We had higher expectations because most often timeshares are 5 star. This one was definitely not. It was old, cinder block construction, with noisy air conditioners and closet doors that wouldn't slide. The bistro, which was hardly ever open, served up the only undrinkable coffee I've ever purchased. We didn't risk a meal there. The staff had very little customer...

Awful. Rude staff, over priced nasty food and prison cell like accommodation. Do Not Spend money to stay here. There are lovely hotels with nice surrounds for the same cost and much nicer food. The staff are very militant with their rules (don't believe the website, no kids club, no gym)
