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

We are currently here untill Friday.. 2 adults and 4 kids between 7 and 14. Paid a lot to come here but it's very basic... 14 year old is bored. Ok it's only day 4 but I wouldn't say it's a very entertaining place. The best thing is the pool and there's not a lot going on there either..no strip... More

We stayed in a Bronze caravan with 3 bedrooms as this suited our needs. We opted for bedding to be supplied and beds made and although there was a charge for this it was reasonable and the bedding was spotlessly clean. All the staff are friendly and John seemed to be everywhere, he booked us in, served in the shop... More

Our expectations were changed a lot once we got there, we got our keys from a woman in reception called Gina- very poor communication skills. When we got to our caravan there was no car parking...

Wow, Bondgirl1999, what a great review, thank you. After coming to Waterside for 15 years you still enjoy all we have to offer and you still appreciate the effort all the team (especially the entertainers) put in to make yours, and others, holidays memorable. See you again in 2015. More
