Recently stayed at this holiday camp. Had an extra wide caravan in a thankfully peaceful area of the park. It was clean enough, and the kitchen was better than we expected. The front windows of the caravan weren't designed to be opened, which given the heat was not welcomed. The shower tray took ages to drain, a pain but we managed. Locking the door was equally a challenge - warped flimsy door!
The beds were awful!! So uncomfy. New mattresses needed please! If you go, take extra bedding to lie on! (It did look clean though, so that's a bonus!)
The EllenGlaze bar and restaurant is a rip off. We complained so much we got our money back, but fear that won't happen to everyone who does this.
The pool is lovely, but sadly the slide is only open for a few minutes every hour, so a huge queue soon forms, meaning you can only ride the slide once, before a long break to ride it again.
It would be much welcomed that they introduce some form of land train to collect people (even for an additional charge) from around the site and take it to the pub car park (St Pirans Inn) for the beach. It was very tiring for small children to walk quite a long way, and with all the beach 'stuff' we all need to take.
Tent/camping people can do with an additional toilet block at the far end!
A bigger/better playground area for 10-15 year olds would also be a welcomed site.
PS - Wifi didn't work - in fact no phone signal either.
