I'll start off by agreeing that there is quite a queue to get checked in, and for the half board food. However, if you're expecting that then the rest is actress is actually a pleasant stay.
We arrived on 25th august and, like others, we went to the main reception at 4pm, to be told that we had to wait for check in in the entertainment area, where check in would start around 5.
The entertainment area had a huge amount of disgruntled people waiting for the keys to their chalets. The delay was that the cleaning was still being done. Can't fault them for that... After all, I'm sure people would rather have a short wait than a dirty apartment! Communication could have been a little better though.
There was nothing wrong with the apartment at all. It was clean, well presented and had everything we needed.
Entertainment was good too, our little man has autism and, the hall was a little noisy for him but, there is a gaming hall with lots of xboxes in the next room so, he was entertained happily. This does cost extra and, if your little ones plan on spending 2 hours a day in there or more, I would recommend the extra wrist band for it.
There was a considerable queue for food, but this is quite understandable with the amount of people that were dining. There was a good selection of food on the buffet, and our family of 4 were all happy with the food there.
Southport itself has a lot to offer with bowling alleys, fair ground and cinemas.
We're still in the middle of our trip but, happy here and looking forward to the rest of the week.
