Ok, so we have stayed at quite a few sites in the last two years & at last we have found the best one!
On arrival I do have to say we got confussed as there was no clear signs to tell us where to go for key collection. A fellow holiday maker told us where to go & that's where I met the fantastic park manager who gave me our welcome pack. We then went to find our caravan expecting something very basic as we had booked through 'The Sun Hols deal', yet we were given a 3 bedroomed one with double glazing & central heating. It was also very clean. We were amazed that nearly all vans have verandahs with picnic benches. Our van looked over the play area so we could watch our children (3 & 5) whilst we drank our coffee!
The site itself is clean & well looked after. The range of activities is great for families with smaller children. There's not much for older kids to do, but if you are at the beach or daytripping It'd be ok. The staff were fantastic & the girls who were on the entertainment team did a great job. On our first day, Gemma spent a while with us & chatted to our children. She had a real knack for remembering childrens names & making them feel special. In fact I chatted to every staff member I met. The views are fantastic & if you walk you are right next to the coastal path.
All the times we have stayed on caravan sites our children were too young for the entertainment. This time they got used to their surroundings quickly & we even stayed for bingo! The entertainment itself is pretty much the same every night & may get boring. Also the function room is a little on the small side, so get there early. We really enjoyed it though & it was perfect for our children.
We ate both in the restaurant & had takeaway. The restaurant was clean & quiet. Just a small point, you can only have roast off the menu on the sunday which wasn't all that clear. You also have to get your own drinks from the bar, so get them before you go in. You also can't eat outside even though there is a perfectly good outside area with tables. To do that you have to get takeaway. All the food we had was very good & freshly cooked, the prices were not all that bad & drinks were reasonable.
The shop on site was well stocked, but we stocked up at Helston on the way through. There are three large supermarkets there.
This is the best site for us. It's relaxed, friendly & quiet. If you have older children & want more to do, then the sister site at Mullion would be better. We stayed there last October & it was also good. We loved Sea Acres so much we have booked to return for a full week next year.
