We have just returned from holidaying here for a week. We stayed in a silver caravan which was the best one we have ever stayed in. Super clean, bright airy with modern fixtures and fittings, the shower was even powerful for a caravan!!. The only downside was it rained heavily a couple of nights and our path flooded and was not usable, it meant we had to walk on the grass which was very slippy and dangerous.
The outside pool was a fair size with stunning views and lots of sunbeds and the inside pool had a great slide which the kids loved although the warm was really warm and they could do with having bigger changing rooms for families to use and better showers (you had to stand with your hand on it to keep it going and they did'nt have much flow).
The bar had a lovely terace with stunning views to coast (Goodrington Bay). The resident entertainers was very good, they kept the kids and adults amused and the dancing/singing shows were good. The only compaint was the speaker volume needs to be controlled a bit better a visiting act was signing and wherever you sat you were completely defened. We ate in the restaurant once and our food was OK, they need to get there act sorted with regards to being able to have a tab. My husband asked if he could have a tab and was told no only to read on a notice on the tables that you could have a tab.
The play areas were lovely and the grounds really nicely kept. The amusment arcades were also good. We had a problem with a light and maintenance were there within minutes of me calling which was very impressive. The site is very hilly so you need good walking legs. Goodrington beech takes about 15/20 minutes to walk to, its one of the best ones we've ever been too. Really pictureous with the steam train at the back of the beech, rockpools and lots of sand.
All the staff were friendly and helpful and we will definately be going back sometime in the near future.
