Cannot believe the review of Maurice D from Manchester, he is talking absolute rubbish. The park is very well maintained and the beach I have always found spotless. The staff have always helped and gone out of their way to help you enjoy your holiday. The entertainment may not be to everyones taste, but they do make an effort and... More

Had another fantastic holiday at Auchenlarie, roasting hot weather stunning scenery, and beautiful modern caravans. This is one of the best kept parks I have ever been at. Hence the reason we keep coming back. One point I would make however, is the lack of internet/broadband facilities within the park. There is free wi-fi available down at the pool area... More

We stayed for a week in a luxury caravan with hot tub. The caravan was absolutely stunning and hot tub was amazing!!! To make the caravan perfect we would loved to have had gates on the decking to stop wee one getting up and down the stairs (but I'm sure that will happen through time as the decking looks like...

Great parc with wonderfully sheltered private beach and fabulous views from the caravan. The vans were very modern and new and clean and reasonably well equipped. Just the usual things you get at most campsites like tiny frying pan, knifes not sharp enough to even cut onions, no wooden spoons, tiny wine glasses. I phoned and asked if there were... More

The complex was very good with a great little pool and arcades and again all spotless. The only slightly negative for us was we got a takeaway from the bistro and found the... More

Just back from another fantastic week, weather was also fabulously warm. Plus points; Location, facilities, helpful/friendly staff, food in Bistro was delicious, pool/sauna, nice walks, veranda on caravans, clean and tidy site. Negatives; A few dead rabbits lying around, however were removed as soon as notified, caravan was untidy, old food in cupboards, windows unwashed. Would we come back again?... More
