We booked this last minute for a family break travelling with hubby and 1 year old daughter. After reading reviews and looking at pictures I was worried what I might find and expecting to arrive in a dingy holiday park that was very run down. On arrival down a little lane we were met by a small reception, staff were... More

Pleasantly surprised by this site after reading the reviews. A lot better than expected however still some major improvements needed. The caravan was as expected of a bronze standard caravan. We also had a larger TV than website said and also a DVD player which we weren’t expecting. Caravan was very clean. Downsides were: Only 2 wine glasses and 1... More

Thank you for your recent review. It was good to note that you were "pleasantly surprised" with Golden Sands after reading previous reviews. It is important to remember that it is a very small percentage of guests who choose to post comments on platforms such as Trip Advisor and in many cases only the negative points are highlighted, however I...

To have caravans like that must be against health and safety regulations.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review which would suggest that Golden Sands was not suited to your requirements or expectations for which I can only apologise. I was sorry to note that you appear to have had an issue with your heating and I am certain that one of our maintenance team would have been happy... More
