My young family of four stayed 2 nights (Friday and Saturday) over a beautiful weekend in a villa. The tourist park is located down the road about 200m away from the front reception at El Lago Hotel. It is situated right opposite a popular fishing spot along the foreshore but rooms don't have any views. It is a short stroll...

I am so disappointed! Came here with my partner and two small children and booked a "6 person Villa" to find it's only literally one room with a Double bed and 2x bunk beds in another little room when the photos lead you to believe there is 2x double 2x singles and 1x bunk bed for children. There is no...

This place is a 2 star at best. Besides being in a good location it is run down, the smallest t.v. in the world, no air con, no wifi, no pots and pans for cooking, the blinds are missing so privacy is at a minimum, the clothes line is a rope around a group of trees..At $200 buck a night...

I'm so shocked at what I got for a $200 a night (min) place. The cabins are disgusting. The torn carpet is repaired with gaffa tape which is torn anyway. The door knob has been repaired by sticking another door knob on top of it. The shower curtain has mould on it. The vertical blinds are useless and don't close...

When booking a self contained villa for 4 I assumed there would be enough cutlery/glasses/crockery/mugs for 4. Woops, silly me. I also assumed there would be cooking utensils and perhaps even cooking implements and even knives to cut food up with but no, the cupboard was bare apart from a spare toilet seat..............oh, but that was broken. Just as well...

If only you could negitavely rate. Was booked in here for 2 nights accommodation after the first night we got a refund and went else where. Still rubbish in room after waiting for it to be finished to check in, an hour late. Toilet seat broken, dirt on shower curtain, dust everywhere, oven not working, could feel the springs in...

This was the worst place we have ever stayed in for the price we paid- my daughter was playing with someone's old ear plugs, that's how disgusting it was! The bed broke just by sitting on it, and the place was old and run down. When we arrived there were people sitting around drinking and playing heavy metal music. We...

Villa blinds were missing so no privacy but it was cheap overnight stay for my family of six. Overall clean dry place to sleep. If you want luxury this is definitely not the place to book. Hasn't been updated since 1970's. It is very close to the entrance beach and the lake.

This is my second visit to the The El Largo Tourist Park, located on the waterfront in The Entrance. The location is great. Shops, cafes and restaurants are within walking distance. There is a bike / walking path right out the front which offers a very pleasant outlook. The ammenities are old, but clean and tidy. Not at all fancy,...
