“Nice venue,but not great service and comunication.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

Arrived to a beautiful location. Further more it was a lovely getaway. Was not communicated to us that the facilities were all closed, incl the swimming pool. Spent a week there but was not much to do. If id known all facilities were closed then i would not have booked.. maybe its a idea to better communicate this to you guests in the future. Also maybe its an idea to have a garbage service come around once in a while to collect old garbage. When i arrived, the garbage bin was still full from the previous people who stayed there. Overall if it wasnt for the nice weather, i dont believe the month of may is a good season to go here.

Stayed May 2014, traveled with family

After a 3 hr drive we finally found the place. Initially I booked for just one night, 3 rooms all 2 people in each. My parents decided to arrive 1 day earlier so I tried to rebook and this is where things went wrong.
They wanted to charge me 36€ for a cancellation fee because I had to cancell it to book another chalet for a longer duration and after having to phone UK from germany to get put through to America to amend by phone (awaiting phone bill) I finally got the 3 bedroom chalet a day earlier.
Upon inspection of the Chalet or more Static caravan the kids had dust all over them, thick because they hid under their bed playing, "Really thick dust". Sitting down we noticed a trial of ants crawling up my arm which was unpleasant. The next day my Mother fell of her bike and badly sprained her leg resulting in her hopping to move around, the company got a golf car and drove her back to her Chalet but on departure she phoned to ask to get a lift to the reception to meet a taxi as taxi may not enter the site and she was refused any help and she had to hobble and hop from the caravan to the reception to have to wait to book out due to low staffing.

Very unfair treatment from the Dutch, shocking service all in all and lots of surprising hidden costs. i.e 9.50 per person for bedding, "NO Towels", its a very much look after yourself and blow your money in the captive audience area.........Terrible!

Room Tip: The Chalet Caravans seem to be biggest, arrive prepared with own bedding and towels and await disapp...

We visited this site with SportTours with a group of 14 years on a rugby tour. That's start with accommodation comfort homes don't translate more like over sized shoe boxes! They say ok for 6 people, 4 is tight.

The site however is very clean and the various toilet blocks are spotless. With regard to food, total joke, not sure they heard of service food is basic but ok but the service is terrible and when we questioned and asked for a reduction on the bill we were threatened with the police, we did call their bluff and got 20% off.

Loads of space and things to do and a good swimming pool and supermarket.
