Booked a 7 day break. Prestige caravan which was exceptional. Modern, very clean and in a quiet location which is what I asked for as we have a son who is autistic.
The park is massive, the reception staff informed me one of the biggest. Very clean, dogs are allowed but no doggy poo which is great. All staff we encountered were helpful, happy and friendly. The security of the site more strict than other haven site we have visited, with staff asking for passes etc which is good.
Other guests kept themselves to themselves- no tattooed women spending their wongo loans here I am pleased to report!!
The pool is definitely a selling point. My kids loved it and it was well managed and very very clean. The only thing I will mention is the restaurant area is used as a changing room with little kiddies in their costumes wrapped in towels. This did put me off ordering a meal but we did enjoy drinks and nachos. I think Haven should address this.
The local area was a bit disappointing but with the free wifi and an ipad we discovered karting and high ropes - no leaflets for these in reception in fact most of the reception leaflets miles away from the camp. Saying that lots to do in the camp and we did spend two days doing activities, you just need to be organised (we are not!) and rich (we definitely are not!). On the whole good value for money and it is a holiday after all. Lovely beaches and playgrounds that are free and the sacred football pitch. Also nice walks past the little chalet village around the site, very quant.
Do spend a day at the theme park right next door. I cant comment on the entertainment as my son cant stand it and its not cool for bigger boys but the "seymoors" show on a Thursday had me in hysterics, I am talking peter Kay and phoenix nights, loved it!! Also opposite parkway cinema is an all you can eat Chinese- put on half a stone yum....
On the whole due to our quality caravan, chilled out atmosphere and nice, friendly staff we had a great time. Nice job Haven. My hubby even wanted to look around the for sale caravans- I dragged him away.......
