We stayed at this resort last week and it was a nightmare. The location is 7 miles from Newquay and there is no bus that can take you into Newquay, so you are stuck on site unless you want to use your car all the time. The nearest bus stop is a good mile away but not walkable as it is a busy main road with no lights at night.
There is no shop on site as advertised, you can buy milk and bread from reception, but they don't advertise this, we found out by chance one day when we were in reception.
The accommodation is clean and tidy, the issue we had was that the shower did not drain when you had a shower and the toilet nearly overflowed when you flushed it. When reported to reception there first words were "did you book direct with us, because if you didn't you need to get onto them to sort it out" not helpful. This never did get resolved as there was never anyone in maintenance available when we went to report it.
The food was OK, but nothing out of this world and we really couldn't have spent a week eating in the restaurant. In actual fact we stayed in Newquay and paid for B & B for three nights out of the week as we could not stand to be stuck on site all the time with nothing to do, all the entertainment had finished by last week, so all you could do was watch TV and drink in the bar.
If you are looking for somewhere to go with children then this may be ideal if you don't want to go anywhere other than the site as there is a pool and a small play area, but if you want anything more, then this is not the place for you.
