Accommodation tired and in need of refurbishment. Living area seating very hard and uncomfortable. Only soft seating provided is the sofa bed. House we had is supposed to accommodate 6 but in reality only suitable for 4 unless you are happy to be cramped up! Not much privacy since rear patio area is open to all and sundry (noisy & nosy neighbours, including the adults!)

Beds very hard. Insufficient crockery or cutlery. Dishwasher provided is only half full when all cups and plates have been used. Take your own dishwasher tablets!

Difficult to see any "eco" credentials other than low wattage lighting and a small recycling area. Had to drag luggage from car park on airport trolley (1 euro coin needed) as not possible to get car closer than 50m away from house.

Best part of this place is the pool which has a monster wave machine and great slides. The food is good but of limited range and expensive - mostly buger, pizza etc. Small mini-market on site has fresh bread & milk.

Kids events in the evening are ok if your kids are fluent in French and happy to stay up until 11pm otherwise not much use.

If you want peace and quiet get as far away from the village centre as possible. Too many noisy events with large PA system and loud music.

Cycle hire is expensive. Take your own bike if you want to. Countryside around is quite flat.

Summary: scruffy, tired and expensive for what it offers.

Room Tip: As far away from the village centre as possible!

Booked a VIP Villa for 8. We were assigned a house near the main square and our stay was spoilt by the noise, mainly loud music in the evenings and mornings. Not what we expected from VIP accomadation.

Room Tip: Do not book a house near the main square. Go for one on the golf course if you can

Just got back from a week at the Belle Dune. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment and it was just the right size for 2 adults, an 8 year old and a 5 year old.
The resort is easy to find, but don't expect P&V signs. Instead, look for signs to the belle dune golf club or the aquaclub.
The apartment was clean and bright. We would not have wanted to be in one in the village square but we couldn't hear any of the entertainments from where we were.
The village has a shop which provides the basics at a high price so ok for emergencies but there is a carrefour 5 mins drive away. There is a full entertainment programme but we didn't take part in anything except the Monday night fireworks.
It was easy to walk to Quend, not very attractive. We drove to Mahon plage which is a lovely town. The land train does trips round but was very busy.
The Aquaclub was good but all children under 10 had a to wear armbands which stopped our children from wanting to go. Be aware that speedos or tight shorts must be worn by males.
From the resort we explored the beautiful seaside resorts on the Somme bay.
In all, not cheap but clean and easy to get out and about to other coastal resorts or the Remembrance trail.

Room Tip: Avoid the main square. A 6 bed apartment was fine for a family of 4.

Spent there a week end with friends and family. Nice place. Ask for a house by the small lake. Lovely and ducks come say hello during the day especially in the morning if you take your meal there. Service is acceptable but there is only one restaurant on site. The pool is interesting but small knowing that anyone from outside the village can access it so it becomes easily crowdy. Houses are relatively small. Nice for 1 small stay with children.

This place touts itself as an “eco-village”. It is located in an area of sand dunes and is about 1 hour drive from Calais.

The good bits:
Wifi at very reasonable price
Staff are very pleasant
Good pool and water activities including wave machine
Bike hire & evening activities
Dishwasher (but no oven)

The bad bits:
Not easy to find reception when you arrive. Inadequate maps & directions
Can't park near chalet. Had to cart all luggage approximately 50m from car park.
Not much sign of “eco” village credentials other than low wattage compact fluorescent lighting and a few recycling bins
Limited choice of overpriced food (mostly burgers & pizzas), Burger bar very overpriced
Poor quality of houses (chalets). Ours had several faults including a bedroom door hanging off its hinges, badly fitted bath panel, some non-working electrics etc
Living / dining area not very comfortable. Only cushions provided are on the sofa bed. All other chairs are hard.
Mattresses are hard on all beds. Sofa bed in living room not comfortable or convenient.
Small patio area which is not private hence invaded by nosy children from adjacent chalets staring through French windows.

Not much help for non-French travellers

Two beaches are approximately 20 minutes walk from the centre. The beaches themselves are pretty awful featureless strips of grey sand which is machine raked every morning to remove litter. The by-product of this process is that nothing is left alive in the sand. You can forget rock pooling or any other activities involving nature on these beaches – there is nothing there. Surrounding the 2 beaches are rows of kiss-me-quick shops and greasy cafes.

Comments
If you want to sleep then make sure you get a location well away from the centre and away from the activities. The centre is very noisy with regular outside activities going on until 11pm with loudspeakers (disco, fireworks, zumba etc)

My comments are also slightly coloured by the French holidaymaker next door to us who insisted in lighting up a huge spliff every evening thereby stinking our house out. Classy.

This place is a generally bit tatty round the edges and needs some maintenance.

In summary, I found this place almost as attractive as Blackpool and about as classy. Would probably not return to this camp.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else
