We visited here for a short break of four nights (which was far too long)! We upgraded to a gold plus caravan which was filthy dirty and all the floors were sticky. The caravan was also infested with ants. My young children had ants in their beds!!! We also had to wash all the cutlery and crockery when we arrived... More

We booked a short break here as the price was so good-decided to upgrade to a platinum caravan and we definitely made the right decision. The reception staff were very nice and the caravan was beautiful. I had emailed the park first to ask for a quiet location and it couldn't have been better with lovely views over the valley....

We returned from Golden Sands at the end of June and we did not want to leave. The caravan was clean to say it was a dog friendly caravan we were happy with it. The holiday park itself is well presented and clean, the new eating area/club looks great and we were met by the friendly entertainment team. Our children... More

We visited golden sands in June the accommodation was perfect, great location. We most enjoyed the entertainment in the club. The team were great and mark the entertainment manager always made our night and made us laugh! One night was unsettled when a group of people were very abusive towards the team but they handled it very well. Even though... More

I am writing to explain my experience having returned (a day early) from Golden Sands Park. On arrival at reception,no issues,very quick service and professional. Thats where the good comments end. We opened the door to our Gold chalet (which in all honesty from outside looked like a shower block) and the first thing that met us was a musty... More

We have stayed at this Holiday Park many times over the years purely because we have two little dogs and it is a dog friendly place. We usually stay in one of the Chalets but this year we decided to book a Caravan, it was very basic the main bedroom was very small and so was the double bed there... More
