Having read some of the negative reviews on Trip Advisor we were a little apprehensive about this place. We needn't have been. Pontins Pakefield represents amazing value for money. Chalets are on the small side but clean and perfectly usable. Beds are on the springy side but as we had read about this previously we came prepared with mattress toppers!... More

id go again and again, if you expect and want 5* then go somewhere else and pay the price! £150 for 4 nights half board for me and my son absolute bargain, cost that to put him in holiday camp for the week! and my food bill cost 100 a week, so going there saved me money! accommodation basic but...

Having been brought up visiting a Pontins every year as a child for my holiday, I knew what standard to expect. I looked forward to bringing my 2 boys, aged 7 and 4 to Pakefield and we were not disappointed. The 3 of us were actually given 2 chalets with a partition door so we had loads of room, 2... More

My wife and I took my 89 yr old grandmother back to Pakefield, Pontins for the first time since losing her husband (my grandfather) in January this year. I had never been to Pontins, and had many years of Butlins before it refurbished and recently had a horrible time back at the new Butlins which we will never return to.... More

Before booking a stay at Pontings Pakefield, please take time to either read this review or pack some rope; although you'll be disappointed there are no balconies to jump from when you get there. First impressions are good, there are some typical holiday park flags which welcome you. But it is when you enter the park things start to get... More

We stayed for a week as a group at Pontins. The chalet was clean and comfortable and even though we stayed in peak season there was no noise at night. This is a budget holiday but be warned parents, everything here is geared towards making your kids spend money. The cafe is at the back of an amusement arcade, and... More

Good location, Beach access, clean rooms, every possible facilities to keep the kids occupied. Breakfast and Dinner offered were not to shabby. We got a good deal on ebookers but worth checking the price at multiple sources before paying.There is a bus stop just right outside if one is keen on public transport and 61 can take you upto Norwich...

We visited Pontins on bank holiday weekend and it was so bad we can home a day early. The 'apartment' was dirty, there was cobwebs and even a dead bug in the corner, and mould around the shower. It was extremely basic, the bed was hard and lumpy so had a terrible nights sleep both nights. The canteen was beyond... More
