Pontins should be cheap and cheerful- really, it's expensive and fairly miserable. The check in 'run to the desk' is horrendous and due to being checked in to the wrong room initially, it took 2 1/2 hours to get into the right chalet! Allocated parking areas may be a more sensible approach than the general mayhem. Also, staying during the... More

I have NEVER written a holiday review for anywhere before, but this was by far THE worst place I have ever stayed... When we drove into the 'estate' our faces dropped. There were people, rubbish and cars everywhere. Parking was atrocious...we queued for ages while staff stood around talking to each other, while one woman served, then we arrived at... More

They say you get what you've paid for - well I want a refund. Arrived on a Monday, first challenge is to find a parking spot! When we finally got into our room it smelt really bad the culprit was soggy rotting salad left in the fridge. Room was dirty & had to clean it myself with antiseptic wipes. Found... More

An absolute disgrace they should be done for false advertisement. I knew we wouldn't get a 5* Hotel but oh my days I was taken aback by how run down, dated, and dirty the whole place was. The staff just did not want to help you. It was a pure disappointment but the sun was out and we made what... More

ROOM: Chalet looked and smelt clean on arrival but basic even for club. After a night there we found the floor was filthy our feet were black(so remember to wear shoes)... More

If there was somebody actually managing the place it could be so much better. We had a club apartment which was absolutely terrible and so dirty and basic, I didn't even want to go in the shower. On the first night we decided to eat in the Sands restaurant which was our only option but the food was disgusting, chicken... More

We drove from Staffordshire and came straight home. Prison cell block chalets with no parking nearby. Family accommodation was 1 small bedroom with 2 crap single beds. Other room was kitchen/ living dining/ bedroom with tiny settee that doubles as a bed. No good for a 6 foot 3 husband and his wife. Room smelled, no shower and no nets.... More
