Have just booked to go back to Golden Sands this year. We have been to Golden Sands several times. We love how close it is to the beach, and there's so much to do in the local area. On park - facilities are kept well maintained, I hear they have refurbished the swimming pool this year too so we're excited... More

I can't believe that F9763FBanna is talking about the same Park that we stayed in - perhaps it was the one by the beach, rather than the one on Weeks Lane. From the welcome by Jim, through the lovely Lisa and Carole in the Restaurant, to the checkout by Jenny, we had a FABULOUS holiday, with unfailing helpfulness, courtesy and... More

Great value. Booked through sun holidays. Great location as lose to Warren and beach. Only downside was the door had a gap in when closed making it cold. But better than expected for what we paid. Lovely clubhouse... played bingo. All staff I came into contact with were friendly and helpful.

Fun holiday caravan site. Wonderful entertainment in the club house, along with good value food. A must for staycations. Near the Dawlish Warren beaches and entertainment. Close to station and a good place to explore Devon from.

Advertising for this place is very misleading! Filthy, nasty ghetto. Cut our losses and left after 2days. Drunk parents leaving their children unsupervised to roam this hell hole. Had a GOLD accommodation but more like economy, actually ,I've had better economy accommodation elsewhere.
