We took a 7 day half board break here on the 24th of August. On arrival check in was quick, we were issued with our halfboard meal vouchers and a handy booklet of events. The caravan we stayed in was absaloutely gorgeus and squeaky clean. It had heating, an electric fire, electric shower, flat screen tv, dvd player, freeview, cd plyer/ipod docking station and all remotes were present. We went for one of the higher models of caravan as some of the reviews on the budget ones were not so good so we avoided them. You do pay quite a bit extra but it was worth it in my opinion.
The Troupers were fabulous, making sure that my children aged 7 and 9 hd a great time. The entertainment on the whole was very very good, there were a couple of duds, mainly a female trouper doing a solo show and another female singer parkdean had booked - they were pretty awful to be fair and honestly they cleared the entertainment venue with the vast majority of people returning to thier caravns. All of the entertainment is family friendly with some sublte adult humour that most children wouldn't understand. There is very little to do in the day though.
The food was ok, although it was a gamble as to weather or not you would get everything on your plate that the menu said, for example dips were never ever brought out and you had to ask for them. Sometimes the food came out cold or undercooked, other times it was ok. Some of the portion sizes were daft and wouldn't fill up my cat!
We were very happy all in all with our stay and I would reccomend that if you are thinking of going then try it out at least - we did and loved it. We will be returning next year for sure.
