“Wow!!”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

To think that this is a holiday camp! It's evident that a great deal of effort has been put in to make this resort something special and they have achieved it. We were fortunate to stay in the hotel part of the complex, on the ground floor. The room had a kitchenette area which in some rooms was used as an extra bedroom but provided little privacy. The chalets appeared well maintained and some of the older ones reminded me of the 1950's. Although I was assured that the interiors were bang up to date.The chalet I visited in the "dog owners" section was top notch.

The quality of the food was excellent, above and beyond expectations. The Sunday carvery was absolutely superb.

The manager was constantly on duty ensuring that there were no glitches and it is undoubtedly down to him (Steve Willis) that so many people adore Unison Croyde Bay Holiday Resort. Thank you.

Room Tip: An absolute gem-ground floor rooms have an outdoor seating area and there aren't balconies on 1s...

Stayed here September 2013 found the self catering cottages very comfortable very well equipped much bigger than I expected and spotlessly clean it was out of season so quiet but that suited us a car was needed as the entertainment catered for people who liked ballroom and sequence dancing wich was not for us some nice places to visit nearby during the day so overall a very enjoyable stay

We extended a family holiday by staying here for a few extra days at the end of August. We paid a lot for the 3 night stay and were really disappointed in the apartment, there were a number of minor and 2 major issues. The manager was great and did resolve these to our satisfaction but it is a shame. The apartments are basic it reminded us of student Halls and they really need updating. The location however is fantastic. Croyde was our fav beach and we spent many days there with the kids, it is clean and stunning. The facilities for the children at the resort are great and we had a good time overall and would return but would stay in the hotel on the complex which is new. Just don't expect much if you are in self catering.

We stayed at Unison Croyde bay in August 2013 and had a lovely time.
The over all site is really lovely very peaceful and tranquil. We stayed in the hotel which is very well appointed, furniture is lovely as well as a big comfy bed.
The resturant food also is great, very nice choices and very delicious.
The beach access is a real bonus especially if you are a surfer as it takes just a few minutes to get on to beach, saves using the car.
Entertainment was also good. we would recommend a visit, we are sure you would enjoy it as we did.
We have another holiday booked with them.

My second visit here and both have been excellent. We were there all weekend at the end of September with a a large party for our wedding. We would like to thank Michelle for making our day so special.If you are considering a wedding location please put yourself in Michelle's hands as we did and you won't be disappointed. The venue was perfect and the staff were excellent (special mention for Martin and Ben too). We never had the opportunity to pass on these sentiments to the General Manager in person. He is very lucky to have such hard-working dedicated staff. Our guests were equally as impressed and pleased we had chosen this venue.

We stayed in a Gold 2 bedroom self catering cottage on a Unison members special offer rate of £150 for 3 nights. Would sleep 6, but it would put pressure on the one loo/shower room. We were parents with our student daughter and her boyfriend: they had the bunks, but the sofa bed looked good quality with proper slatted base and decent mattress. Generally clean and well equipped, though the decor is getting a little dated now and it lacks subtleties such as table lamps for softer lighting. It's not a place to come if you don't like children, as the cottages face a communal green and the children play out on it (the Atlantic cottages may have been more peaceful in that respect). We used the pool which was very pleasant, and nearly empty despite the number of children staying: all at the beach in wetsuits even at the end of September. We also played crazy golf, table tennis, putting and tennis all virtually for free (if you haven't got table tennis balls or golf balls, you just buy them in the shop) Only problem was with the table tennis which was in a very dusty building and a bit too close to a snooker table for comfort when both are in use. we tried to use the Dune Bar but it kept being full of weddings! The daytime bar is horribly full of large tv screens so we did not use it, and the evening bar in the restaurant/ entertainment area is rather soulless, but it was happy to let us take our drinks back to our cottage as long as we brought the glasses back. The food selection looked uninspiring so we didn't try it. You do need to bring supplies if you are self catering as the shop is very basic, although ok for milk/ bread/ free range eggs. Also a small off licence section, but not much choice (no real ale for instance: although it is sold in the bars on draught).

The holiday Resort is in a lovely location just behind the sand dunes and beach: lovely walk to Baggy Point. (National Trust Coast). Croyde has some pretty cottages but the pubs and restaurants seem uniformly tasteless and/ or overpriced. The surf influence is not positive in that respect. We can thoroughly recommend Sunday lunch at the Kings Arms in Georgeham though (see reviews)

Excellent for families with children as it's really safe with no on site traffic and plenty to do. Overall layout is pleasant and nostalgic chalets look just that! All in all a good stay for the price we paid, it might seem overpriced at normal rates for the quality of accommodation. but you do get a lot of facilities.

Room Tip: Atlantic Cottages are probably quieter than Gold cottages

We stayed for 4 nights mid August and was very impressed with the site,our 2 children had lots of fun with plenty of facilities on site,the only thing I would say needs improving would be the entertainment at night after the childrens shows finished people left straight away and it was only 9.30-10ish we didn't mind as we had young children but for couples etc the entertainment could defiantly be improved.the children's entertainment was great though children loved the dance routines and meeting benny bear!

Housekeeping was brilliant,we had a family room,and was spotless,housekeepers were very friendly and knocked everyday to see if we needed anything etc,couldn't fault this area atall

Location is perfect,basically on the beach!and a 5-10min walk into croyde village
Restaurant was always clean and tidy,and staff always there to help etc,food was good a choice every night of a roast,pasta dish or fish,aswell as a saladbar,and dessert area,something for everyone!
Overall we had a perfect family holiday and will defiantly be returning.
