Stayed here with my daughter and 3 grandchildren over October half term this year but wished we hadn`t bothered. Filthy accommodation allegedly Gold Apartments....it took 3 attempts to get something liveable but even this was disgusting but slightly better than the first two offerings, as the heating not working, shower so small I could not turn round in it and...

Stayed here for a weekend in September as a "Sun holiday" short break. I was assigned to a flat rather than a caravan which I wasn't expecting. As I approached what looked like a small army barracks, my heart sank. It also overlooked the Under 5's play area - my heart sank a little further. No peaceful weekend for me,... More

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

Thank you for your recent review.

With regards to the mould when you moved the bed, I am... 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

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

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.
