We have just come back from a 4 day 'Sun Break' at Trecco Bay. We use the 'Sun breaks' twice a year as a holiday for our 2 dogs. While we appreciate the deal is cheap and that dogs are only allowed in certain caravans we did not expect such a low budget, basic, grubby, tatty caravan on such a Chavy site.
We reported that our shower head had fallen off and that the grill did not work- a maintenance guy eventually came to us but spent more time texting on his phone than fixing the problems. Neither issue was resolved during our stay.
The couple in the caravan next door to us had a blazing row one night- going on for a couple of hours. The language used and noise was horrendous - in the end Security were called to 'try' to calm them.
As part of the ''Sun Break' the site charges extra for bedding and entertainment passes- we declined both of these but both were still provided. Beware of this con. if you are on a budget. Don't pay the extra charge as you get them anyway!!
We did 'up grade'!!!! prior to arrival - £20 for a newer caravan with heating in the bedrooms - I hate to think what the more basic caravan to ours was like!!!
The area the site is in very run down however there are a few pretty small towns near by such as Nottage and Cowbridge that are worth a visit.
I will choose more carefully for my next 'Sun break'!!!
