My husband did a 5 day ICC course and had a fantastic holiday; I did a 3 day Intro to flotilla and had a so so holiday. All down to the instruction. I raised my concerns whilst I was there - Sunsail UK say they know nothing about my complaint- disappointing to say the least. Their guidance says to rasie it whilst you're there.......
Rules around day hire of yachts were not explained, so we lost the chance to have a boat off the draw, shame.
We've done Neilson and Mark Warner so we know the set up - beach kit was very good and even though its the end of the season the beach staff were keen. Liked the ladies only sessions, mainly as the numbers were low!
Wind was either non-existent or high; on yachts it meant we used motor mostly,didn't really give either of us the sailing we'd hoped for.
Down sides for us, and not really mentioned elsewhere on these reviews were noisy rooms (we tried to keep the a/c on at night to block out external noises), and the buffet becomes rather boring - I found waiting for food straight off the BBQ better than taking off the buffet.
Rooms were very comfortable and clean and loved having a kettle. We had sea view, so glad we had to, rear view rooms looked dark. But then again its an activity holiday!
Complex was very well maintained, and views from the seafront rooms were good. Bar prices were OK and the beach bar food prices were similar to local bars (food not as good). Marina supermarket was also a bonus, prices keen. Wish we'd taken gym kit - very well equipped gym. Spa underused, very friendly therapist.
Overall, could have got 4/5 stars but the inabililty to deal with my complaints whilst on site were disappointing.
