Just returned from a 2 week holiday at this park and felt that it was quite cramped and noisy.
Our caravan was ok had everything we needed but was not very clean.
The on-site shop was good for all the essentials bread, milk etc.
Clubhouse was busy and a few times we were unable to get a table - so get there early!!
The outside pool was ok but I have to say that it was pretty cold, kids enjoyed the waterslide. There are no toilets or showers by the pool which was a pain as we all had to troop back to the caravan to get showered.
There is a very small arcade area but a lot of the times my children went there (to play the 2p machines) they were out of order.
We were overlooking the play area and this was noisy on a number of occasions late into the night with older children screaming and shouting - not sure if this was patrolled or not.
The beach which is a flat 5/10 minutes walk away is fantastic, great surf, lifeguards on duty and small snack/ice cream van - perfect location and views.
Overall we were slightly dissapointed with this Parkdean site, it just didn't tick all the boxes. Would not return here and would recomend anyone else to go a bit further south and head to Sea Acres which was a wonderful quiet site with stunning views we visited in 2011 and 2012.
