My wife and I are pensioners and we travelled to Waterside on public transport. This is not a site to stay at if you are elderly or less mobile. Everwhere you walk is up and down slopes. Even to the 'cove' is perilous. At high tide you can't see it. At low tide you have to climb down steps and... More

Thank you, harold55, for your review. At this time of year we do tend to quieten down and our facilities become less populated. Our main complex does open until 6.00pm, our other bar/restaurant is open from 8.30am until 10.30am daily, same times apply on a Friday to Monday with the exception of opening from 12.00pm onwards.

Stayed at Waterside for a week from 6th September. We have stayed in this area many times but first time at Waterside. What can I say the site is amazing very friendly staff.

We have just returned from a weekend here with my partner, my mom and our 2 kids and we have had a great weekend. The staff were all very friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. The heated outside pool is possibly the warmest pool (inside or out) I have ever been in and the kids loved it. The floor... More

Just spent 4 days at the beginning of September .Sadly whilest the rest of the southwest was bathed in sunshine we had a little cloud. We had a caravan right at the top of the hill (327 ) Awesome view right across the bay. Camp adjacent to the southwest coast path so ideal for you walkers out there. The caravan... More

Have just returned from Waterside park, spent three days with my partner and two teenage girls. Site was adequate for our needs. We used it as a base for our stay. We have visited Torbay many times so know the area well. We had a free upgrade from Silver plus to Gold. The caravan was ample big enough and was... More

Many thanks BettyVee for your review. I am sorry to read your accommodation was not as expected. We have explained through separate correspondence that we have many different styles of Platinum grade accommodation therefore making it virtually impossible to show images of each one on our website. With the crane operation, we did make you aware upon check-in that this... More

After staying here last year we went to a different park this year however enables us to use any park holidays sites so went to waterside pool. Pool was clean and warm but lifeguard was horrible didn't have time for you when you spoke to him was more bothered about going for a fag! Safety first?!

Thank you for your review. I have to say I am very surprised by your "horrible" lifeguard comment, all previous reviews of Chris & Hannah have had nothing but praise for them. There was absolutely no question of any safety issues with the pool, there is always 1 fully qualified lifeguard on duty whether ones on a break or not.... More

Just left on Friday and can honestly say, we had a brilliant time! From meeting the lovely staff in the reception/shop. To the entertainment at night. Even down to the lifeguards at the pool! Everyone is friendly and welcoming, the park itself is set in a beautiful area to explore. From Paignton beach, Goodrington beach, Brixham, Kingswear and Dartmouth. On... More
