Parkdean - Trecco Bay Holiday Park
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

We had food in the coast and bar kitchen restaurant,trecco bay porthcawl Wales. After an hour and 15 min wait for food,it finally came. It was terrible. We are a family of 4 on a budget,I'm gutted we spent £33 on food for it to be not eaten. No staff came to us asking if everything was ok. We've been coming to porthcawl for years won't be coming any more. very very disappointed. Feeling sick the thought of wasting money like that. So so disappointed

had a lovely weekend break. on a 'sun' holiday. arrived late but reception was great. bit of a pain to find the van in the dark.

The van was lovely, clean and roomy and nice 12ft wide. we did not upgrade. but there does not look to be many 10ft vans on site. nice to walk around the sea front from the park. well lit.

the chippy on site is very reasonable, the nisa shop is a little dear but not to bad for holiday parks. did not use the entertainment complex.

easy to get to Cardiff and Swansea and the Gower. very nice site.

Note to Parkdean, please can you improve the exits signs from the park as it is a nightmare trying to find the way out

will I be back yep

Room Tip: We did not upgrade, and where well pleased with the caravan

First time with The Parkdean Trecco Bay Holiday Park, very impressed with the standard of the caravan . The whole park is lovely and very clean. The beach is a short walk away. My daughter really enjoy the entertainment there. Will return there again sometime.

Weekend sun holiday end of March. We was by no means expecting 5* but let down by Parkdean overall service. Arrived to find no kettle, powercut everytime we used the toaster. Shower was freezing and no grill tray provided. Customer service sent electrician but rather than try and find fault, replaced electrical items only for problem to continue. Site is not too far from beach and you can walk to Porthcawl from seafront within approx. half an hour. Park has crazy golf, swimming, clubs, football pitches,etc which were well maintained. Entertainment was good. Some nice places to visit not too far, The Mumbles, The Gower,

Myself and my partner stayed here on one of the Sun holidays. We decided to upgrade our caravan before we arrived to a larger one which had central heating. We also took our dog. The caravan was lovely and very spacious and the heating came in handy on the first night! The whole park is lovely and extremely clean, always people around litter pickingml. The beach is a short walk from the park abd takes you to the town of Porthcawl (around 4 miles there and back). Our little pug found lots of doggy friends to play with and all the people we encountered were very friendly. Cannot comment on the bars because we didn't use them. Can't speak highly enough of the caravan, it was a home from home! Will return next year!

I've been to Trecco many times over the years, this time on a Sun hol with my partner. Our caravan was a 3 bedroom , of a good standard with heaters in the bedrooms. Bit of a walk to the main area but I prefer that. We didn't purchase entertainment passes , we went to the sports bar for a drink and ate in the Coast . The food and menu had improved since the last time and we enjoyed it. Our young grandchildren came to the caravan Sat and we took them to Jungle Jims play area. We were in there over an hour for £6.00 for the 3 of them and they enjoyed it immensely .Unfortunately due to work we had to leave on the Sun but we are already planning our next break.
The Globe pub near the entrance , does a decent meal and we also stayed for a few drinks after.

Room Tip: I feel you are better situated if older! away from the entertainment area

The park was great, with lots to do and places to eat. Also everywhere was clean. We had a kenfig caravan which was lovely, the only thing was the bed was extremely uncomfortable, springs digging in our backs. Lamps in bedrooms would be good and wifi would be excellent.
