So utterly disappointed. Completely unsafe for children including my baby. Damp, mould, dirt, stains, when complained about the smell I was told to open windows (with children at 7pm in October) and presented with air freshener. The place needs a deep clean. Broken knives, bedside table, scart lead and blind. Although staff were friendly, they failed to act and we... More

Come back from staying at golden sands today after going down there for half term. My family had a gold caravan and also a lodge. We was told that the caravan was supposed to be brand new which is clearly was not as the sofas were already wearing away. Also the size of the twin bedrooms was just way to... More

We pulled into the main entrance and I went and queued in the main reception to sign in. It seemed everyone in front of me was complaining about their accommodation, one woman was calling her husband on her mobile insisting she'd rather drive home than stay in her disgusting caravan! Not a good sign I thought... After 5 minutes of... More

We are staying in a two bedroom bronze dog friendly caravan. It is what it says on the tin and what you pay for. Even though only a gas fire in living room the bedrooms were not cold and we are nice and cosy. Swimming pool hot and just like being in a bath. Shop had everything we needed. reception... More

Have stayed in a mixture of holiday parks, this was the worse we have ever visited. We went as a group and had three different caravans, ours was the best and that was saying something. No ignition on cooker, we had to rehang all curtains on arrival. Gold vans the rest of our party had included a patch of stinging... More

I was very sorry to note that your holiday with us was not as expected and that you experienced issues with your accommodation. Unfortunately we did encounter an issue with the pool temperature, which lasted several days, however we did inform our guests that the swimming pool on our sister park, Dawlish Sands, was available to use. I was surprised... More

The chalet had enough space for our family of four. But it was a bit cold as none of the radiators worked, just a few plugged in heaters kept us enough warm. It says bring tea towels and matches, how about oven gloves, eggcups, etc. So we survived on friday when there was enough tables to sit at but come... More

We had a lovely time, at Golden Sands, for a weekend in October The caravan and the park were very clean and tidy. I cant fault the staff - everyone we spoke to was helpful, happy, and pleasant. No mean feat when trying to entertain a load of little kids !! Watch out for heating - not all caravans have... More

Lodge was immaculate, beds where already made on arrival and heating was set to a nice temperature. Cleaned to a high standard which was unexpected after reding reviews. The accomodation was large enough for the while family, it had all the luxury extras of a flat screen tv, DVD player (good for the kids on rainy days), an iron and... More
