Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Took our little boy to Christmas Island for his very first Santa visit. Such a magical experience from start to finish. The staff are all so friendly and extremely accommodating, nothing is to big for them and they really engage with everyone. The lights and experience was incredible. We also had food in the restaurant during our visit which was lovely and very reasonable. We will most definitely be back again next year.

The family had a super Christmas experience the children especially enjoyed the North Pole Express train journey, the entertaining elfs and the visit with Santa and of course the presents. A great day had by all, adults as well. 🤣 I would highly recommend this Santa Christmas visit just to see how much the children enjoyed the day and interaction with the highly experienced elfs who had us all singing and dancing with them.

Well, that was FANTASTIC! My kids are still talking about it. We went for Christmas Island at Hidden Valley. They've really embraced the Christmas spirit there and you can feel it as soon as you arrive. Everything looks absolutely superb and the experience itself is magic. The staff are incredible and they work really hard to stay in the festive mood despite what must be long days for them. They were utterly brilliant with the kids and us adults! They made the experience everything we hoped it would be, unforgettable! I've already told some of my own friends and family to get there for a wonderful Christmas Experience. The train, the boat, the Elves, Santa! It's seriously good and brilliantly executed time wise too. Bravo to all involved!

Great family holiday and reasonably priced. Loads to do and only a short walk into the town. Water sports are great. Kids loved it. The lodges are basic but perfect for glamping holiday. Very comfortable The campsite in which you pitch rents is lovely with backdrop of river. Well run and clean site.

The most antiquated system I have ever come across. Book a ride online then you have to go to another place and get a wristband for that ride. Seriously this is 2023 ! Staff are incompetent and rude but this is down to poor management. Will never go there again, Clara Lara is far more efficient and value for money.

Fantastic fun filled family vacation, we had 2 kids aged 8 and 11 with us, and they had an absolute ball. Plenty to do. You have to pay for most activities, but all in all its worth it. Will return when kids are older, as felt some of the activities are not aimed at the smaller kids.

We were having a nice trip until our last evening and dinner in the lake house. We order a vegetarian thai green curry, a chicken one arrived. No problem sent it back, a second dish arrived and i asked the waitress if it was vegetarian and she said it was, then i noticed a big bit of chicken. I asked for a refund and was given one, (i was not even going to say anything) then the waitress said "just so you know we did make you a new dish, but we ran out of bowls so the chef scraped out the bowl and put it in the same bowl" I had to explain to her why that was not good enough, that there was still chicken in it and she did get upset and said "i'm just saying what the chef said" so i asked to speak to the chef who said the same thing. And again i explained why that was not good enough. Next thing i know we are surrounded by at least 5 staff members, Who demanded we apologies to the 15 year old waitress for upsetting her, that it was only one bit of chicken and that we had got our refund what more did we want. Not one of them seemed to understand our issue with been given chicken twice (On a side note i would never want to upset any 15 year old, I totally accept it was not here fault) but the lack of understanding about basic food safety and food hygiene, was beyond worrying. A manager did finally come out and listen to what we were saying, she offered the kids ice-cream and gave us a free drink. Unfortunately my husband over heard her the next day talking and we are left with the impression that we are being painted as the bad guys. It is a really shame as i liked camping here but i would never trust the kitchen again.

What a great little place, can't believe we hadn't discovered it until now. We stayed overnight in one of the deluxe lodges and they were great, small but well appointed and ideal for this type of facility if you're not into camping. Kids loved the water park, the kayaking and the park in general. One thing that surprised me was the food, it was quite good, maybe unfairly I was not expecting much but it certainly exceeded expectations. We'd booked a restaurant up the road, Jacobs Well, for the evening and had I know the relative quality of both I wouldn't have bothered. Well worth a trip for families that like outdoor activities, you won't be disappointed.

We had a super time camping at hidden valley. My son enjoyed the water activities, movie, playground & mini golf. The food was delicious in the Lakehouse restaurant. The staff were very friendly & helpful. I’m am extremely grateful to one staff member in particular for his first aid skills. I am so sorry that I didn’t get his name. He was working at check in/shop on Saturday 27th May when I became unwell. His skills were invaluable. Thank you so very much to this man. We will definitely return.
