Absolutely loved it here.... entertainment team Terry, Cory, Liam,Emma,Charlotte and kirsty together made a great team.... We won another holiday back in October too(bonus). We upgraded to a luxury plus van and it was beautiful.... clean and spacious. The grounds were clean. The only downfall was for us that the pool roof was being fixed so it wasn't open, could...

I spent the Easter week here and as parks go its not bad. The Silver Caravan was clean and the beds made up for us. The only problem was the loo door would not lock. The park is very dated. I stayed there fifty years ago and can remember the clubhouse not being that much different. The pool lacks shower... More

Swimming pool is ok though cold if the sun isnt out. Caravan was clean but artistic licence on the website says you are next to... More

Thank you for choosing Dawlish Sands as your first holiday park experience; I am sorry however that we did not meet your expectations. Our Indoor Swimming pool is heated to 30oC, though our Outdoor Pool is not due to open until July. The Housekeeping department work very hard to ensure the caravans are presented in a clean and comfortable manner,... More

Just back from Dawlish Sands- staff are rude and have upset many families- some refused to go back to club house due to rudeness. 2 email complaints sent to park Holidays but no response or acknowledgement- poor service, poor staff and ruined a holiday. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY
