Stayed here 26th-29th June with my husband and 3 year old son. Arrived early and didn't expect caravan to be ready but when I asked for passes (which we had already paid for) so we could go swimming she said we could use facilities if passes had been paid for. It was quite clear on the booking confirmation I had... More

Every year I have a girly long weekend away with my friends. With the sun holiday vouchers and we always upgrade. We have been on many over the years and this o was by far the worst.

Trip Advisor is a forum to share experiences of stays at various places, and as such many guests do read through reviews before choosing where to stay. Your comments regarding the Disgusting Customer Service are unfounded and unjust in such a public forum, as I do recall both the Holiday Services Manager and the Housekeeping team attending to your issues...

We had a very nice weekend away at Dawlish Sands Holiday Park. The Park itself was fine, we had no problems with noise there and the staff were very helpful. The bar was OK and the staff there were happy and helpful. Our son loved the swimming pool and it was great that we were so close to it. The... More

Stayed here last week. Caravan was filthy inside and out. I understand that with seagulls around the outside will get dirty but poo covering most windows was not pleasant. Inside the caravan was awful. Mould in the bathroom, curtains hanging off the windows, filthy floors, dog hair on the sofas, dirty walls I could go on. The smell inside was... More

Our cleaning team have recently been restructured in order to improve the cleanliness standards provided to our guests, and I can only apologise that they have let us down for your recent stay. Entertainment is a subjective point of view and it is difficult to cater to the requirements of all guests, though we do receive a lot of positive... More

see into other vans. Dogs are allowed to roam and we found dog mess outside the door the following day. This is our 5th and final time of staying at this park. over the years the park has declined greatly. not due to the local management but the owners of the park. The area is beautiful and there is a... More

As returning guests it saddens me to read that this will be your last stay with us, and I sincerely hope we are able to improve our standards and entice you back again in the future.

You definitely get what you pay for. I have a dog so did stay in a dog friendly van and got a late minute deal for 4 nights for £99. However I expected it at least to be clean and and not to have bits broken everywhere! It smelt quite bad when I turned up so opened all the windows... More

I am extremely sorry that the cleanliness standard provided to yourselves left a lot to be desired, and we certainly do not expect our guests to wash or clean up after previous guests before being able to begin their holiday. Your comments regarding kids bangers are understandable, though I am unfortunately unable to prevent children from using these on park... More

The holiday was great, starting with a nice new caravan, which was spacious and featured everything that we needed. The staff seemed helpful when we arrived and helped us for directions on the odd other occasion. The resort was located within a 15 minute walk to the local beach. The on site attractions like the swimming pool were also great.... More

Stayed here for a week end of April. We booked a platinum brand new caravan. It was beautiful inside and you could tell it was new, although the cleaners are lazy and it was a bit mucky in the fridge and bathroom. One day we saw them clean a whole caravan in just 17 minutes. Also there was stained cups... More
