We really enjoyed our holiday at Duinrell thus summer. This is a fantastic holiday park for many reasons and we would definitely come again. Firstly having the theme park made the holiday because the rides are good and perfect for the age of my kids 10 and 8 and also for older kids. It's a big place with bit just rides but a large area for little ones too and normal play park areas. The food within the theme park was delicious at 'La place' restaurant and we were impressed. It's pricey but superb quality food. There is also a pancake restaurant and profiteroles stands etc and places to get fast food too.
On site there's a supermarket but in the village about 5 to 10 min walk there is a c100 supermarket which is better value and choice. The village is beautiful and fantastic eating places plus an ice cream parlour 1 euro a scoop called Luciano's. Delicious!
To get to Amsterdam we needed to get a bus to Leiden and then a train to Amsterdam. In total the journey was about 30-40 mins including bus. We paid 4euro each for bus (even kids) although depending on driver some give kids half fare. Then 36 euro in total for all four of us on train.
If you fancy a trip to the beach, I don't recommend scheveningen unless you are dying to go and you have a car. We had to get a bus to Den Haag which cost 16 euro total. Then from there a tram to scheveningen which cost 12 euro is we paid in total to get there and back 60 euro to visit a beach that looked like Blackpool. Instead would be better to hire cycles for the day at duinrell and cycle to nearby beach 20 mins bike ride.
We stayed in a 3 bed vista home which we booked through euro camp and it was ok but a bit small. Next time we plan to book direct with the holiday park and stay in a dungalow which are bigger and better equipped and better value.
