I know Haven are one of the succesful holiday parks in UK but they definitely need to move with the times.
Haven in Pwllheli we found to be clean and the staff very friendly but their set up is very outdated and at times something like Hi De Hi!
Most activities are outdoor and as you can appreciate with the British weather means quite often you ahve no choice on wet days other than to go to the indoor pool (which is actually one of the few good things) or spend your afternoon in the entertainment clubs on the arcades.
Speaking of which, if you love arcades and 2p machines Haven will be your haven (Sorry for the pun) but unless you want to send hours in them there isnt much more to do indoors.
The beach is nothing like the pictures unless you travel at least 5 miles. The beach on site is rocky, full of stones and doesnt have much sand - a far cry from the pictures.
The night entertainment for children is fair - the staff on stage really do their best but the set up is so outdated even the kids get bored relatively quickly.
Overall this holiday is fun if you manage to go during the few days of sun we have, enjoy long stints on 2pm machines and like cheesy stage shows. If you ever went on holiday as a child in the 70's / 80's in Britain it will be like stepping back in time!
Come on Haven, move with the times!
