I was seriously impressed with this holiday and wish I had been able to stay there longer. The resort is quite large with a couple of shops and a few options for places to eat. I got the impression that only the main restaurant was a serious option for providing proper meals but there were a couple of other places on site for fast food. The restaurant was itself fantastic; we are a very awkward family with loads of different food allergies and intolerances; the staff went to incredible lengths to make sure that we were still able to enjoy our meals. I am used to being brushed off and having to make do but Anna, Allan and Pav in particular gave us service with a smile and were helpful enough to please people who are far less easily pleased than us.
The swimming pool here is really nice; we only got the chance to use it once and wished we had been in there a lot more. There were bowling alleys and pool tables in their 50s diner section, there were the obligatory amusement arcades and a really nice looking crazy golf type area as well as evening entertainment from singers, dancers and comedians in the main hall. There was little chance of getting bored here. I didn't get the chance to use a great deal of the on site entertainment because the area had plenty to see. Bridgend was a few miles away but I got the impression it had seen better days. Porthcawl was only a couple of hundred metres away though and it was really nice, a classic British seaside town. The beaches and rock pools around the area were really nice to walk around and I found that even with the terrible weather we had during our week there it was still nice to do a lot of exploring on foot.
