We booked this as a last minute weekend break to relax and spend some quality time together as a family, and we were not disappointed. We rented a chalet for 4 people and there were 3 of us (2 adults and a toddler). It was a nice size, very clean, modern and good facilities. The only things I would point out are - it stated fully equipped kitchen, but there is no oven, only a microwave (there is a hob, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, toaster, kettle, coffee maker) and you need to bring your own towels and all toiletories including handsoap. Also as the site is mainly occupied by Dutch and German visitors all printed information is in these languages only, although I believe some of the staff also speak English, and they are very friendly and helpful.
The site has excellent facilities - indoor and outdoor pool, cinema, plenty of play parks for kids, large indoor soft play area, kiddie farm, cycle hire, horse riding, shop, lauderette, golf course, close to the beach, campsite with great facilities from what I saw, plenty of restaurants, bars and much more.
I think the only downside to the chalets was the fact that they didn't have any fencing around them - just lots of bushes dotted here and there. This made it impossible to leave the door open and let our toddler play outside as it was impossible to keep an eye on him and also he could easily run onto the roads through the site. That was a pity as, even in October, the weather was lovely and patio furniture is provided - we just couldn't take advantage of this.
Overall though, we had a fantastic time and we are definitely planning on going back next year in the spring before the site gets too busy (it was nice and quiet in October - not sure I would be so keen peak season!). Next time we will stay longer though - 2 nights were not long enough!
