We stayed here as two families, 9 in total, 4 adults, 5 kids, in 2 mobile homes with Thompson Al Fresco.
The location was a 2 minute walk to the beach, and the mobile homes were very new (under 5 years old at a guess). This part of the Yelloh Village was spacious and uncrowded. We did venture for a wander around other areas of the park, and some areas were really cramped and near the main road too.
Within the first 20 mins of arriving, we had been asked for Euros 20, refundable deposit, for the barrier key to get the car in and out of the park and also Euros 60 as a breakages and cleaning deposit. Breakages, fair enough, however cleaning...??? When the reps were questioned they said (quote) "Well its not really a cleaning deposit as we clean the vans after the guests leave, its to stop people having a fry up and leaving us with all the washing up(??!!)". Anyway, on closer inspection of the brouchre in the van, it stipulated a list of requirements for cleaning. Picture included.
Having paid over £1,500 for 10 days, I don't go on holiday to clean the accommodation after use. We stayed with Keycamps last year, and were not required to leave a deposit or "clean" on leaving.
The sun beds by the pool are a joke. There are never enough and people reserve them all day and don't actually use them.
The live entertainment was OK, with the exception of the Michael Jackson tribute which was just amazing!! There was some quite ridiculous behavior by some local holiday makers, who were pretty much man handling any children who dared to stand at the stage watching the entertainment. It was quite nasty. On one occasion I was trying to wrestle my 2 year old nieces to sit down, and a family sat right at the back on the other side of the swimming pool, decided to shine a red laser on my back and in my nieces face, in order to try to get my attention to get me to sit down! Idiots!
Wouldn't go back as Vias Plage it is a trashy, tourist dump. The only thing going for Yelloh is it is so close to the beach.
The traffic jams are horrific.
