We decided on a change of holiday this year to hopefully ensure our three children did not get bored. We were not disappointed, we were able to relax and know that our children were well entertained, made new friends and were safe on their scooters around this wonderful park.
They all made friends around similar ages (6,9,12) and the pool was the biggest hit with them. Pools and slides to suit all ages and ability of swimming. The pool area opened between 10.00am - 8.00pm each day and was funny to watch people queuing from 9.30 am to get sunbeds. The pool area is not too crowded but you did need to be there early to get a bed, especially near to a pool of choice.
On arrival had to wait a little to check in which can understand as everyone arriving at 4.00pm - next year I will check in slightly later to avoid the wait.
We had booked a Cottage VIP for 6 people which was on a large pitch. For the price we paid it was slightly dated but was bigger than expected. It could have been a little cleaner. You are responsible for your own cleaning at the end of your stay (well leave it in the condition it was first occupied in). I think ours was cleaner at the end than arrival. We did tell them that the bathroom was dirty and straight away someone came to re clean.
Reception excellent and extremely helpful when our shower stopped working and provided a spare cottage to use until they could fix it.
I think some of the less expensive accommodation is just as good (or even better) as we never needed to use air conditioning as wasn't really hot and TV never used. Is the extra benefit of a safe but I felt the site to be a really safe and friendly place that I could have lived without that. It came with bedding and towels, towels great but next time would pay less and take my own bedding. Also use of 2 bikes included in the price but didn't bother as had to pay an extra 100euro each deposit to use.
Internet connection/wifi very slow but we went for this type of holiday so the children avoided their iPads/laptops!
Entertainment ok and kept the kids happy. Good shop on site and was surprised that the prices were reasonable. Kids club to use, which our youngest two went for one day, they enjoyed but preferred time around the pool.
Need a car to explore, La Rochelle worth a visit. Unfortunately never got chance to visit any of the beaches as we could not drag our children away from the pool.
Overall fantastic, well kept site and next year we are returning for a longer stay.
