“what a nightmare!!!”
Reviewed 23 August 2008

Brynowen should be renamed as the Holiday camp from Hell.
We booked a gold star apartment at Brynowen only to find we were situated on "heart attack" hill, with two pensioners in tow,
this was not a good start. The apartment itself was very basic.
There were no coasters or placemats and nowhere to hang your coats. The flowerbeds outside the apartments were a mass of 3 foot weeds. As my son is a keen swimmer we visited the onsite pool. The changing rooms were dire to say the least, grotty curtains and filthy floors. The surround of the pool looked like garden paving slabs!!! One night I needed to use the ladies in the patio bar only to find the waste bins overflowing with paper towels and used nappies - obviously had not been emptied for days. The car parks were inadequate and holidaymakers were forced to park on the grass verges surrounding the camp. The childrens play area was up a huge hill followed by two flights of concrete steps. Entertainment - this was great if you were between the ages of 3 years and 7 years. It seemed like the childrens show never ended. Beverages - you had to queue for at least half an hour everytime you wanted a drink. The only thing for older children to do was use the arcades. These were may I say placed in the most convenient place to entice the youngsters to part with their holiday money. If you want a fun family holiday in beautiful surroundings then do not go to Bryowen Park Resorts Site.
