“A wet week”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2008

I have been to Trecco Bay many times over the years; being from South Wales originally, but I found that the site has changed a lot in the last 5 years, not all for the best.

We had the misfortune to book one of the wettest July weeks I can remember for our stay (not the fault of the park) and found that a lot of the facilities were closed during our stay. What was open was quite expensive with the mini-golf being £3-00 per person regardles of age. At home I can play a full round of golf at my local course for this price!

Caravan was good, clean and tidy with plenty of room for a family of 4. Staff were friendly and helpful but not so much as to save the impression of being expensive overall. There is only so much you can do in the slot-arcades and swimming pool. The best day we had during the entire holiday was the day we left the park and went to Oakwood Theme Park, a great day out regardless of the weather and it worked out cheaper than staying on the site.

Sorry Trecco Bay, I will keep my happy memories of years ago intact and not come back again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2007

We have just stayed at Trecco Bay one of Parkdean's Holiday parks (Family of 4). We found that although the park is very large the lay out was very good. The games facilities were good but found it strange that some of the on site shops were closed, it was half term week, although not in Wales, and the site was busy. The caravan was large enough, a six berth, and clean. Unfortunately we had a couple of cold nights and it took a bit to get the caravan warm, but that can't be helped. We visited Gower, which was lovely, not over impressed with Swansea. We would visit again.
