The title say's it all we have had many holidays here and enjoyed everyone of them. Always plenty to do around the resort sports, bowling, quizzes, keep fit, gym, swimming, golf, archery rifle shooting and much more.
We always go for a Bungalow Plus Chalet which is on £5 per person per night extra but worth it.
The chalet has tea/coffee making facilities, iron/ironing board and fridge plus toiletries.
Although the chalet this time was next in line for refurbishment I think they were doing next door when we were there. They also have rooms in the Hotel if you don't want to be outside in the grounds.
The restaurant is very spacious but there aren't many tables for 2 so you have to share a table unless you are one of the lucky ones that get one. (We never have done!!!) Great choice of food at all meal times I'm sure you will always find something you like?
Entertainment always brilliant the Potters Theatre Team are fantastic and are all stars in there own way. Keep up the good work.
It is a great place to go for any family celebration such as Hen Parties, Anniversarys, Birthdays etc.
Reception staff always smiley and helpful at all times.
You will find the resort very clean throughout wherever you go.
Will definitely return soon.
You can join the Breakaway Club for a small fee which is well worth it you get emails every month with cheap breaks throughout the year.
Book it and enjoy you won't regret it.

Everything about potter's is exceptional especially the entertainment. Mark Brewer was really funny I haven't laughed that much in a long
time
The activities are run very professionally and are also great fun
The food is of a very high standard and a great variety.
We have already rebooked for next year Can't wait.

All in all this is a very nice resort with excellent facilities. I would rate the hotel accomodation 5 star and the rooms are very large. The chalets are very nice also but in the colder weather it can be a problem as some are quite a walk from the main resort area. Having now been on 3 Sunday/Monday breaks which includes a 5 course evening meal we have found out that to get a good seat in the theatre you have to leave halfway through the meal. Indeed on all three occasions there has been a queue outside the theatre at 19.30 and the resterant only opens at 18.30. The theatre seating is not sloped so the view from the back is somewhat limited. This is the only downside to the breaks we have been on but saying that I feel it is very important because we go to see the shows on the Sunday evening. I fel I must also add that we feel the standard of the food is not as good as our first visit.

Room Tip: Definately stay in the hotel rather than a chalet. It does not cost that much more and is definately...

We normally go with our bowls club for one of the bowling weeks, (Monday to Friday) but this time we added in the Sunday as they advertised this as a St.Patrick's Night. Being Irish, I thought this would be a perfect start to the week. I didn't get the impression that much effort had been put into making this an Irish night as there were no flags or banners or anything relating to Ireland around the resort, restaurant of Theatre. After dinner we went to the theatre expecting to be entertained in an Irish manner. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. The show lasted 90 minutes and the Irish content was, to say the least, mediocre. We felt that they added Country and Western style dancing to pad out the show and by the end it looked like they were having difficulty in filling in the 90 minutes. To be honest we could have lent them our Ipod to ensure they had sufficient Irish music to fill the program. All in all a very disappointing Irish night.
Apart from this we found Potters to be up to their usual high standard of cleanliness and that the food in the restaurant was 'up' on last year with food well cooked and plenty of variety. The chalets were always well cleaned, the tea and coffee was replaced daily and the shower in the bath was definitely of power shower intensity.
The staff were, as normal, friendly and efficient.
With regard the Chalet, we found they had changed the wardrobe from previous years and there was hardly any room to hang, blouses, shirts trousers etc. In actual fact, I had to hang my long dress on the outside of the Wardrobe door, along with some of our other clothes. I must admit we were not impressed with this.
The Potters Theatre Company put on good performances except for the final goodbye which was very much the same as previous years. We had Union Jacks distributed and all sang 'You'll Never Walk Alone'. This does need to be addressed as it does become, for regular visitors, rather boring.
The bowling was very well organised as usual and I think it fair to say everybody enjoyed themselves.
All in all, the small amount of negative points were well outweighed by the positive points.

Room Tip: Chalets nearest the sea are quieter as they don't get the footfall when guests are returning aft...
