This was our second stay at a Siblu park, having enjoyed Le Lac des Rives immensely in 2011. After being told how good La Carabasse was I was looking forward to returning to this wonderful part of France. While La Carabasse had some good points - clean, comfortable mobile home, good reception staff and excellent entertainments team which my daughters loved - I feel the minus points ruined the overall experience.
Firstly the pool was way too crowded - allowing outsiders to use the pool facilities is not a good idea - especially when there are not enough sun loungers even for park residents. And the marshalling of people was too light-touch - a couple of times a bunch of guys were playing football around sunbeds - to the annoyance of other guests - and nothing was done to control this by the attendants. Additionally, I disliked the incessant radio music that was playing on speakers around the pool. I asked numerous times for this to be turned off, or at least down, to be told that it was for the benefit of other guests - none of whom I spoke to seem to be listening to it.
The other thing was the noise from nearby parks was loud enough to affect the quality of sleep. I took this up with the duty manager only to be told that La Carabasse is a "lively" resort and that I should have thought about this when booking. I'm sorry but in my book "lively" is not the same as "noisy" - Siblu should be more honest in their description of this resort.
While these may appear small annoyances it's the small things that make a holiday...
