Stayed at this site Monday to Friday through sun holidays. Had upgraded with the sun but prior to travelling had received a letter about further upgrade options through haven. I hadn't realised that a sun luxury plus grade is only a deluxe grade caravan and so no heating. Paid £40 to upgrade to prestige, and well worth it.
The caravan was lovely, 2013 model with double glazing and full central heating throughout. Stayed in meadowfields which was close walk to entertainment but still quiet. Had viewed the site map beforehand and requested this area as the site is very large and lots of people were having to drive to the entertainment.
The site was very clean and well maintained and one day we took the train around the site and the end near the golf course was very peaceful and felt like you were somewhere else.
Now the negatives, the entertainment complex is not massive given the size of the site, fine when we went but if we were not in showbar for 6 we were struggling to find seats close enough to stage for the children to see. Also not enough play parks for young children, 2 bucket swings, one slide, and a few other bits, cannot imagine what this would be like in the height of summer. The soft play area was so small with no slides, last year at caister there was a full soft play area in its own room with an under and over 4's area and you could easily spend over an hour in there.
The entertainment complex seems to have the entrance on the wrong side, to get into it you have to walk all around it and on a busy road(where all people driving to entertainment drive on) crossing the road twice as no pavement, this is not ideal with toddlers.
The fun stars team at this site seemed poor in comparison to other sites I have visited, things started late and they did not get involved with the children. Toddler disco was music played in a dark room with flashing lights and no sign of the fun stars, in the past this has involved traditional party dances with the fun stars doing the moves with the little ones. Last year at the caister site my children spent most of their holiday in the showbar doing various activities and staff learnt
their names but this year they were bored. Hardly saw the
characters and never all at the
Overall an enjoyable holiday, children enjoyed it and the upgraded caravan made all the difference.
