We stayed here the first week of July. Check in was incredibly easy, even though we arrived after hours. We booked a 3BR Seafield to house 3 adults and 2 kids. The bedrooms are small but the living area was very large. Our caravan was clean and everything was in working order. All of the other caravans in the area also seemed to be in good shape (from the outside). I know this may be obvious for Europeans but Americans need to know to bring their own towels and cleaning materials. Bed sheets and pillow cases are provided.
The resort was great. We were here 5 minutes before my girls were out playing with the neighbors. Kids everywhere. It was great for them to have so many children close by. Large space between caravans made it easy to play.
The common areas of the resort were also nice. The pool area was large and well equipped. The store was well stocked, the playground was excellent. The on-site laundry was convenient but sometimes crowded. We did not eat in the full service restaurant but the take away shop was very good and had extended hours. The on-site entertainment is designed around the kids. There is a small walled soccer / tennis / basketball court. The only negative was the miniature golf which is expensive and the holes were always covered with mulch from the playground making it impossible to play.
Another drawback was the location. We found the park was not convenient to Ayr, about 15 minute drive back to town including the long slow drive off of the main road. There was a smaller closer town to the East, Coylton, but most touristy things (Culzean Castle, the beach, Burns house, golf) were a long way the other direction. But if golf and driving the beautiful countryside were our biggest problems, obviously we had a great time.
With so few places in Great Britian that house 5 people, we found Sundrum to be an excellent value as well.
Definitely a place we would come back to.
