Butlins has more or less everything for the youngster and has quite a bit for the older person too. You just have to wait and wait quite a while for the Splashworld if the weather turns wet. ( Everyone wants to go 30 mins). We stayed in the Seaside Apartments on the front near the beach. Very handy. had all... More

Stayed in a 6 Birth Static Caravan. The caravan was clean and tidy on arrival and, was to a good standard. It was about 10 to 15min walk into Butlins main centre.The van had full central heating, shower room and basin and a seperate toilet and basin. Three bedrooms consisting of 1 double and two rooms with two single beds... More

So much to do for everyone in the family regardless of age - just a shame you have to leave at 6pm as the time goes so quick. Great value for money though with so much entertainment on offer as well as the fantastic pool.

Visited on a day pass, and didn't enjoy it at all, what looked like young students employed cheaply that didn't care less about anyone visiting. Penned in as the site has robust security to stop anyone getting in who hasn't paid. Justvdidnt feel family friendly for my children and everything seemed to be "pay again" despite it being expensive to... More

Just got back from Skegness and wanted to comment on the staff in the Deck Restaurant. Same staff in the morning for breakfast & dinner there to give guests a very warm welcome both ends of the day which makes all the difference, talking to both the adults and children in the group being friendly & cheerful. Well done Butlins!

Day visit to Butlins on 21st July. Quite expensive for 2 adults and 1 child £56. Good parking facility and walk underpass to get into Butlins. Swimming was very busy at 11am but went quieter over lunchtime. Not as much to do for older kids like by 11yr son, mainly geared towards young kids with Fireman Sam and Puppet show... More

We stayed in the caravan village so can't comment on Butlin's accommodation. Overall the site was very well set out with lots to do for every age group. The staff we encountered were all friendly and the shows we decided to watch were very good. Keeping a single teenager occupied takes some doing but we had a lot of laughs... More

We have just spent a week at Butlins and my daughters (5 and 3) just loved it. Their swimming attraction is one of the best in the country and the shows are as good as any we have paid for (and they are all included in the price!) There are plenty of optional extras, we opted for archery for us... More
