It was our first time holidaying at bluestone and we were impressed!
Having been to centre parcs in the past I can say I definitely prefer bluestone, it's smaller, closer together and just seemed nicer!
We stayed in a 2 bedroom Caldey lodge with 3 children under 5.
The lodges are nice with everything you need.
The beds are uncomfortable but that's minor. The travel cot didn't smell too fresh either.
We had no bath which was a draw back with small children as the wet room was a pain with wet floors.
Bluestone itself is lovely, very clean and tidy. All members of staff are excellent and helpful.
We are in the knights tafarn which was good but the food at the farmyard grill was appalling for the money they charge, I complained about my food and got a refund.
The outside play areas are good and the blue lagoon fun, not as good as centre parcs pools but still good. As there were 3 kids and only 2 adults we had to hire a lifeguard to accompany us in the pool which is something I wasn't aware of and quite cross about but it was only £7 and Stefan who helped us was very friendly and good at entertaining the kids.
We did a messy play party but it was seriously overpriced and I will avoid booking anything when we go again.
The indoor play area us amazing but the food at the wild wood cafe is poor.
The surrounding areas are beautiful and the beach at saundersfoot lovely.
Folly farm is wicked with lots available, the vintage fair is great fun.
