Reviewed 4 January 2014

Another excellent new year celebration at Croyde. The waggy tail cottage was very clean, well appointed, comfortable and extremely dog friendly. We booked the meal package and were not disappointed. The food throughout our stay was excellent and the staff really made an effort to make the dining area very festive and special. We celebrated the new year with an gala dinner followed by dancing to a live band and then a disco - a great party night. Complimentary wine before the meal and champagne at midnight followed by bucks fizz for breakfast next day was a nice touch too. The whole package was brilliant value for money and we shall certainly be returning next year.

We have been coming to Croyde Unison for 10 years and for the past 3 have stayed in the Waggy Tails Cottages with our 2 dogs. Could not fault it at all. Accommodation always clean and tidy with plenty of room for the 3 of us plus dogs. We always eat on site at the Buffet Restaurant for all you can eat breakfast and dinner. We are always spoilt for choice and the food is excellent as is the service. The staff are always polite and nothing is too much trouble. Short walk to the beach although at high season dogs are not allowed on Croyde Beach so we take them a short drive to Saunton Sands which they love! Have been to other Holiday Camps in the past but none a patch on this one. Very relaxing and wouldn't go anywhere else. Entertainment for kids is great and for Elvis fans the best tribute act performs here weekly. Never get tired of seeing Barry Paul as Elvis!
Booking now for 2014!

Have being coming to the same site for nearly 47 years (sad I know) being as i am 48 my Mom has being coming here since she was 18 (now 82) There have been changes and have always stopped in the classic chalets during the summer months. Now food not as good as it was years gone by. Breakfast toasters are useless (conveyor type Travel lodges use these and are setup and then remove knobs so cannot be changed) But apart from that a fantastic location and always very clean and will be returnig again and again. Great for families with small children as no danger from any traffic and can explore to their hearts content. Brought my two kids here every year since my kids were 3 months old and its a way of life for them. Bit expensive but this means it is a bit excusive to be honest.
All round (having also stopped in the Hotel) top knotch

Room Tip: Have a room facing the Beach

We needed a one-night stay on a Monday in November - after some uncertainty necessitating a return telephone call, we were offered a double room at £128. Because of previous knowledge of the swimming pool and leisure centre, I eschewed one of the many, much cheaper B and B 's in the village.

On arrival it transpired that the swimming pool/ leisure centre is closed on Mondays - I felt that I should been told this on booking. The Hotel part of the Unison base was cold and soulless and was open for one party of "tinsel and Turkey" coach- trippers in addition to ourselves.

Our room, whilst spacious and well-appointed, was gloomy, especially in the bathroom area. The lack of light was compounded by missing light-bulbs, duly reported to Reception.

The whole experience was disappointing and extremely poor value at £128 for the night.

Room Tip: Book in summer months only, when Staff and clientelle should make this location a more pleasant expe...

Ideal out of season getaway if you want good value comfortable accommodation in a lovely part of the country. We appreciated the 'extra long' weekend break, the use of jacuzzi and pool, and first class warm accommodation and good food.

Family of four. We have been several times to the Resort. Our accommodation in one of the Atlantic Cottages suited our needs perfectly. It was great to have the extra room. We opted to have the meal package of breakfast and evening meal. Good food. Desserts could have included a fruit option. Carvery excellent. Did not like the fact internet connection was an additional charge. There should have been free Wi fi areas. Great location for beach. Although we were only there for three nights, would have appreciated a towel change, although bins were emptied daily and beds made. We will be definitely returning next year.

I've stayed here a few times on male only surf trips, always off season.

The chalets are functional rather than luxurious but well enough equipped.

The facilities including pool sauna and jacuzzi are clean and in good nick - what you'd expect in a 4 star hotel.

There's a bar that sells Tribute.

It's a 10 minute walk to the village and you can go over the dunes to the beach and surf.

The staff are super friendly and helpful.

It makes Unison membership worth it in itself as you get 15% discount.
