“family memories are made here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

My partner has been holidaying in Dawlish with his family for 33 years now, I have been going for the last 3 and coming from Blackpool to holiday on another beach in Devon is not appealing to most however Dawlish Warren is just fabulous.
There is lots to do for families, admittedly for a young couple it can be a bit too quiet, but once you find your feet then you will realise that there is a lot to do.
The beach is well maintained, the Warren itself has a lot for children to do and some good go-karts for the bigger kids and the pubs nearby serve good qoality food (the Smugglers Inn is a personal favourite). It is also worth phoning in advance as many pubs allow pets in which is great.

The only thing that I dislike usually during our stay is the poor entertainment in the Hazelwood bar. Last time they decided that at 9pm suitable entertainment was the young "reps" singing Disney songs. This needs looking at really however is the only thing that lets it down. The bar now serves food through the day however a little hatch or BBQ area near the pool might bring a few more bodies in?
The beds are quite small and we have had bunk beds before with broken ladders but if you alert staff to anything you find an issue with they are very quick at responding and putting it right.

Room Tip: The ones right at the front are where we usually stay, despite being nearest to the bar they are alw...

we spent a week at park 22/06/13 through to 29/06/13,when we entered chalet it was cold and had a damp smell we put on wall heating but it would have been better if we had lit a match,kitchen appliances ok if you had any intention of cooking which I did not (so not a plus). shower head was green obviously cleaning(I digress)was only done on floor level, beds sub-standard pillow shams disgustingly unhygienic,feather pillow on bed which surely is not the done thing ,all bedding should be washable,sofa bed with matching chair must have been taken from someones skip it was disgusting I would not put it in my shed, now on to amenities laundry facilities dour and expensive (would be worse if you had small children) fish and chip shop not open, club expensive, staff serving in bar not happy bunnies,up until Wednesday only two entertainers performing at club ,as there were hardly any patrons at club entertainers were struggling! singing was not to bad but same thing just different songs for 7 nights is more than a human can cope with,then a new girl joined the entertainment duo, O.M.G.she looked so bored I I really felt for them because they really had not got an audience,as we did not have children with us I cannot comment on what there was for them.staff at londis shop did not seem to be enjoying there stay either I don't think I saw one smile or even bother to converse ,I have been to a lot of holiday parks but this one is one we would never visit again yes it is cheap enough ,but as they say you only get what you pay for and at hazelwood !!!!!!!!!! PS no facilities in bathroom for toiletries bath un-usable it was pitted and grubby,no wardrobes in bedrooms which to me is a minus .etc! etc!

Room Tip: don't visit this park

HazelwoodPark, Owner at Hazelwood Holiday Park, responded to this review, 12 July 2013
Thank you for your feedback. I was sorry to read here that you were unhappy with your holiday in June.

I would haved loved the oportunity to have met you while you were here to try and resolve all the issues you had. We have many accommodation styles one of which may have suited you and your family better. We are an independant family business and in that repect we are personally disapointed when people have a bad experience on our park.

We always strive to have the accommodation in a perfect condition when our customers arrive, but we appreciate that things can go wrong so we have a team of people waiting to deal with custom issues on check-in and throughout their stay. It's unfortunate that we unaware that our usual high standards had dropped in your case.

During quieter weeks the free entertainment in the Clubhouse is scaled down with a full schedule in place during the Summer Holidays and our Themed Weeks. Within walking distance local pubs and restaurants at the Warren Resort can offer an alternative.

Not long wrote a review for this hotel but as we have just come back again and had such a great time I think it is appropriate. As we went in the school bank holiday week it was very busy and alot of children were in the complex. The room was great, we stayed in a hazelwood accomodation, omly thing I'd say is that the double bed could be a bit bigger. The eating area/ kitchen/ living area were nice and clean with everything you need. The bathroom and shower and bath facilities were great and also very clean. The clubhouse was great, good prices for beer and good childrens entertainment and bingo which we took part in,. The adults entertainmnet isnt the best but I would highly reccomend watching Elvis aka jimmy collins. The staff are great and friendly and I cannot fault hazelwood at all. Its a great place to stay in a lovely location. Dawlish warren resort itself is beautiful especially when you get the weather like we did. Few pubs and restaurants to look out for are the mount pleasant, the boathouse, the welcome inn and swans nest which is just past starcross on the way to exeter. I would recommend a trip into dawlish aswell as teignmouth, shaldonm and torquay. Lovely place and I have been coming here most of my life and have already booked again for next may. Love it.

My last review was about the cleanliness of the lodge we stayed in.
We have had conversations with the management at the park and they very kindly gave us 25% of our money back.
The park is very nice and safe for children, good location and reasonably priced.
We would go back again.

Room Tip: Lodges are the best accommodation and hot tubs are great even in the winter

This site is for the over 50's - not suitable for families (You get a different impression from the website though). I felt a little let down when we arrived as we have a young child and there was no entertainment for children, pool wasn't open (but it was green so I wouldn't have let him swim in there if it was open anyway) and there was one slide and climbing frame. The "club house" was dire and held bingo every night (Indicating the age group here) - the chippy on site was't good either (we visited the chippy at the site over the road and that was a million times better).

Having said all the above the 3 bedroom lodge we stayed in was brilliant - spacious - great view .
If you like holidays where opening till late is 8.00pm, fishing and bingo then you will love this site - if you have children over 3 years old then they will be really bored.

Overall we had a good holiday because we were out and about visiting places but it would of been nice to have more to do at night - The site is great value for money.

Room Tip: Lodges all the way

Very good value for money. You get what you pay for really. This was a cheap getaway for family and friends and we had no complaints. Reception staff were friendly on arrival. We stayed in a hazelwood lodge, it was clean, although I did take some anti bacterial wipes with me and give it a once over. The entertainment in the evening was poor, but it was very early on in the season and only a few people in the club house so you can expect this for an april stay. No doubt this will pick up in higher season. All in all we enjoyed our stay here, we cannot complain for the price we paid.
