Golden Sands Holiday Park Rhyl
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

I love Golden Sands Rhyl.

I usually go twice a year here through the Sun Holidays, although it's still very good value for money if you book direct!

It's fantastic. The caravans are beautiful - sparkling clean, great amenities and big! They have a flat screen tv which usually has a DVD player and so much lounge space. Only thing I would say is if you go in a standard caravan they may not have heating, and in winter months will be FREEZING so take a few portable heaters, you can get them cheap enough. The location of the caravans is amazing, right next to the pretty beach!

The location of the campsite is good too, 2mins away from a huge asda so you can stock up.

Rhyl itself is disappointing as it's so run down and not much there, but we enjoy the bingo, cinema and cafes. Avoid the nightlife in the centre of Rhyl it is horrific I've never seen such rough people.

But on the other hand - you don't need to go to entertainment anywhere else as the entertainment at Golden Sands is really good, especially on a weekend (Fri and Sat). We are a couple (both 23 and no kids) and it's a good laugh. We've also been here with friends the same age and had such good fun. Drinks are reasonably priced and the entertainment is good for the whole family. They seem to do real good for the kids and then the adult entertainment is cheesy but fun.

The food here is good value for money and nice.

Staff are helpful too. Only ever had 1 problem ever here when our hot water broke but they have 24/7 handy men - who couldn't fix it but they moved us caravans!

Is highly recommend Golden Sands - especially to families. It's fantastic and so cheap to go.

I also forgot to mention it is amazing for visiting beautiful north Wales - Welsh Mountain Zoo, Llandudno and Snowdon all drive able!

Just got back from our 3rd visit to the park we always book two caravans as daughter and son and lots of grandkids come also.its the first time we have been placed on Beech fields daughter had BF29 which was very spacious and clean, for a bronze caravan it was very good. We were allocated BF4 when we got to the unit well what could I say,we thought we had been given the wrong van for a bronze ,it had a range cooker '3piece suite ,patio doors and was very nice and spacious really made our holiday.Just one complaint about it the lounge area had been wallpapered and this was coming off in quite a few places if this was stuck down the van would be excellent.Park still as good and clean, staff excellent customer service very good especially Michelle in reception Shane Carly and the other gold star team.We have booked to come again on the 13th sept for 7nights withe my mum and dad as its her 70th birthday and there wedding anniversary it is a surprise for them and can't wait for them to enjoy or park .Hoping to get same caravan again BF 4 again .see you all soon

Just got back from a weeks stay.the park and the facilities are the best by far we have experienced whilst staying on a caravan site.the staff were pleasant.the acts on stage were really good,all were good performers with good singing voices.the campsite was spotless and had nice displays of hanging baskets and flowered borders.the bar had drink offers,was well stocked and was well staffed.the chippy though is a hidden gem with a great simple choices and the chips we had were proper chippy chips and not frozen.everyone who worked on the site seemed to enjoy working there.a lot of thought and investment has gone into this camp.nice to see there are no charges on the cash machines.we will be back and hopefully soon

My family & I have been owners on the site for under a year. Overall we are very happy with the site & the facility's & it's great location next to the beach.
There are just a couple of minor things that could be improved.
Firstly the lack of cameras, especially on the beechfields site. I know from other owners there has been concerns of people lurking around late at night & other incidents.
Secondly the lifeguard, or should I say the misery at the pool, has on every occasion we have been to the pool with our children constantly told us off for every little thing the kids did. We were not the only family she seemed to be 'telling off' either. The last visit to the pool resulted in us leaving after 15 minutes as I was on edge with her constant looking over us & even trying to tell us how we should be showing one of our children to swim. We are there for a good time, not to feel like we're being watched over. I know there are rules, which we follow, but she is just over the top!
I also feel that the site would benefit from maybe a play area or football nets on the open grass area closer to the back of the site.

Just returned from a 3 day break here and got to comment and say it was well worth the visit. We go to these parks a few times a year for long weekends generally along north wales coast so have done the havens and few others but never here. Arrival I thought this may not be great as it is tucked away down a side road, then given a static miles from entertainment next to a train line with 2 young kids not what I expected. Went back to reception manager Kerry told her who straight away changed the caravan to one closer to site no issue at all.
Our caravan was gold standard, comfortable and clean more than enough equipment in kitchen lounge etc beds comfortable. Entertainment was good, standard sort of stuff but all done well and professionally better than a lot I've seen. The bar is ok size and not to pricey food is good too.
The best food option is Bombay buffet!next to site entrance, really good Indian food for Buffett style good quality and cheap for whats on offer we went twice as that impressed.

The site location is excellent with direct access to a great beach. There is then the beach pathway into towyn with all the fair etc which is good, it's worth buying the £10 all in bracelet for the fair for the kids. The towyn market on sat and Sunday is excellent too.

Overall I was really impressed, this site offers a lot excellent location. The site is clean and tidy and I had 1 issue when we arrived that was sorted no issue. We will go back, kids loved it and we enjoyed it too. I have paid a lot more for far worse.

We booked a caravan (No 45) for our stay.
Not wishing to sound arrogant but this was our first break in the UK for some time so didnt know what to expect.
The caravan was very clean and everything worked well,beds had even been made up for us.
The staff were all very nice,the Fish and Chip shop staff on our first night were excellent,im sure the fish was a baby whale,it was enormous!
The only thing I would ask for as someone who runs their own business is to offer Wi Fi as part of the initial booking as pre paid,it is available but I couldnt be bothered messing to get it once I got there.
Great little break,Rhyl is so much nicer than I remember it from years back as well.

Room Tip: I would ask for one near the main entrance as closer to club house and shops.

We stayed at Golden Sands for a week, end June - beginning
July and reckon it's the best holiday we've had in years! Check in was great, our caravan was spotless, modern and a really good size. We were really close to the lovely beach, which kept our 2 (age 2 and 5) really happy. The pool was really clean and well managed. The on-site chipper was great, not too expensive and nice quality. The kids loved the evening entertainment and although they only went to kids club a couple of times, they really enjoyed it.
The location of the site was great, so handy for Llandudno, Conway etc and we had a great day in Greenwood. Rhyl and Prestatyn were as expected - a little in need of TLC but as you would expect.
I just wish we (in Ireland) had something similar here, so nice to have all facilities on-site even though you may not always want to use them. It was ideal for our family ( with small kids) and with so much close by the grown ups had a ball too. Top marks all-round!
