This was our first time at hendra and we were extremely impressed and kids had an amazing time as loads to do for them. we stayed in a pod which was amazing compared to staying in a tent. they were lovely and warm at night, didnt even need spare heater we took with us, and were very clean and well looked after, only problem is the toilets are quite a walk away, so be advised especially if you have children to take a spare bucket as you proberly wont fancie doing the long walk in the middle of the night!!! toilet blocks were lovely and clean and it is a well maintained park and cant wait to take the kids back again.

When you 1st enter the caravan park you notice how well maintained the site is, its very clean the grass was all cut short and it all just looked lovely. We requested a caravan near to the amenities as our daughter is disabled and we were given the closest! it was a beautiful caravan with huge tv and i have stayed in lots of caravans never with a tv this huge or even 1 in the bedroom. Our daughters loved the 2p machines they were on them all the time and had some nice little gifts in there for them 2 win our little lad loved the motorbike arcades it was good to collect tokens for them to choose a gift at the end of the week, the free soft play area was a little small but when you have kids that make friends easy your well away and they loved it. The shop sold everything you could possibly need for your stay and was nice and tidy, the staff were all helpful. The oasis pool was brilliant our kids loved it, the slides were great my fiance kept taking the kids on with him and non swimmers were not allowed on there own! we did not use the chip shop on site but they smelled lovely we used the restaurant inside and that food was beautiful. The night time entertainment was brilliant for our 3 kids our 2 year old loved the cuddly costumed characters and having her photo with them everyday and all 3 kids danced the nights away! our kids are 2, 5 and 6 and they did not want to come home they loved it sooo much.

Definately book here you will not be disappointed if your holidays for your kids like ours was :-)

we stayed for 5 days at hendra our first time at the park, was well impressed a lovely clean site, very happy and friendly staff , we stayed in the gwythian caravan which was lovely and comfy and warm with the central heating. The food was great and good if your on a budget 2 breakfasts for £6 and meals in the evening £12 for two meals, the entertainment team especially Adam are a credit to the park, the entertainment both for children and adults were very good, we would definetly come back to the park we enjoyed it so much we paid for an extra night nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the reception were very friendly and helpful. thank you hendra for a pleasureable holiday

Room Tip: pay extra for the gwythian caravan

We stayed at hendra just after easter in the kids holiday the park we very clean and tidy and great value for money the swimming pool was fantastic for the kids to play in i was also having great fun in the pool too there is little penny arcade inside the main club house and one just by the shop . The shop is well stocked with all your needs and not over priced the meals are good with lots on the plate they are also good value however the chip shop is a little expensive. all in all this was a nice get away we are planning to return there later in the year.

We went in April 2014 for a week 2 adults 2 children. On first impressions the park seemed nice, the staff at reception friendly enough. Upraded to a gwithian caravan one of the new ones. The caravan was a bit on the small side, not anywhere to hang coats or put boots shoes etc, beds were okay we had linen provided. It was a short walk from the caravan to the amusements and oasis fun pool. The amusements were a bit dated and never had any change, there is a small play area for children and a small skateboard park. The soft play area was a let down very small inside my daughter played for about 5 mins then wanted to do something else. The restaurant onsite was expensive we bought some shopping from morrisons just down the road. The chippy we tried one night it was okay but again pricey. There is a little train that takes you round the park takes about 10 mins, that was okay for the children,but the girl on the mike ranted on about where to buy tickets for swimming where to buy food etc....think she was on commission!! Oasis fun park was always very busy go early! The slides and pool were good we enjoyed our time there...however the staff were not very helpful...one lady slipped over with her child and I heard the lifeguard just say oh well ive worked here 14 years and I have never slipped over! what? also there were occasions I noticed small children going down the big waters slides with armbands on!! tut tut!! The parks family run and you can tell....it needs money pumping into it...though I guess you get what you pay for...sometimes. Head out of the park and there are some nice beaches not far away.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your feedback. We do always put a lot of money back into the Park each year and are always improving play areas, the caravans, Pods, camping areas, and eating areas. We will pass on your feedback about the Lifeguards in the Pool, as health and safety is always a priority to us. We are pleased that you enjoyed the beaches.

I had never been here before, however the site is immaculate, very clean. The staff could not do enough for us, very friendly. The caravan was the best I've been in. The food on site wS reasonably priced and very nice. So much to do for kids, the swimming pool was great. Will defiantly return here and recommend to anyone.

As the title suggests, we have been here before and each time is just better than the last. The facilities are great and the entertainment is always top rate. Customer service is first class as always. This time we booked a larger caravan and found it to be very clean and well equipped. They say "size matters" and in this case it is true. With three boys as well as my wife and I the extra toilet was a godsend.

If we had to offer tips for things that could be improved, we would ask for more tables in the bar/entertainment room as the seating at family bingo and early evening kids shows is limited and we missed out on two nights. More recycling facilities would be a benefit too.

Finally, we did not get our loyalty passes for returning visitors and I think this was because my wife booked this year, whereas it is usually me but we are all at the same address and some linking of details would be nice so we benefit from the extras on offer.

Overall, an amazing weeks holiday which we will be repeating next year.

Room Tip: Get the biggest caravan you can. The extra space is worth it.
