Well I'm so glad I didn't listen to the reviews, we stayed in a silver caravan which was very clean and tidy and spacious enough for the three off us. When we arrived... More

Thank you for your review of our holiday park. It is always upsetting when a guest feels they didnt enjoy their stay. I trust that once these issues were reported they were dealt with efficiently. I do hope you will give us another try in the future. Many thanks More

The bathroom door did not close from the outside and the toilet seat was broken, they knew we had a one year old surely this should have... More

We have just come back from a 4 night stay at Suffolk Sands. We have really enjoyed our stay. We booked a Gold Plus Caravan and I'm very pleased we did. This caravan was fantastic, it was everything we needed. Very spacious, large dining lounge area, good sized kitchen and very large double bedroom with en suite, with 3 separate... More

This was our second time at Suffolk sands and as before we had a good time . Lovely walks and weather was kind to us considering it was March. Caravan was brand new and so very clean and comfortable, plenty of heating and so cozy evenings with an bottle of wine went down well!! Will be coming back again next... More

We chose this holiday park because of its close proximity to where we live. We stayed in a bronze standard caravan, which was adequate for our needs. Apart from the small blood stains on the duvet in the double bedroom and a few troubles with the TV, we were very pleased with our accommodation. The shower was warm enough and... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad you made the most of the bad weather. Hopefully the duvet was changed when you reported it to reception. The complex at Felixstowe does get busy, I will ask the staff to try and keep an eye on the children running around, as you can imagine they are excited about being on... More

after reading the reviews on here I was a little apprehensive about our visit however all was a lot better than expected. Caravan was extremely clean and spacious but did take our own bedding, which I was glad of. Wasn't expecting an eight berth caravan for 2 of us!
