Blimey......I think some people on here must be confusing this place with a 5 star all inclusive in the Maldives! Seriously people....you get what you pay for and this place does was it says on the tin! We did the groupon offer and for what we paid we got a good little break. Our room was a popular apartment in the yellow block - no complaints whatsoever - sure it wasn't ultra posh and could do with a lick of paint but blimey.....it was fine and spacious! The pool was basic and was very very cold so we only stayed in it for 15 minutes! They need some more things to do as we did get rather bored rather quickly and didn't want to keep spending pennies in the arcade! The crazy golf looked like it would give us splinters so we didn't bother! We played snooker and pool (pool tables pretty naff!) and we walked to the beach which was amazing! The entertainment was ok.....I wouldn't put it on a par with Butlins at all....and the Pontins Got Talent show was awful and so cheesy! They could do better as the 2 entertainment rooms are very nice and big. My main complain with the place was the dining room - it was totally chaotic! At dinner I'd advise that if you want your first choice you arrive dead on opening time! We got there after half hour and 2 main dishes had 'finished' - pretty poor I think and one night I had the kids meal! They need more staff in the dining room desperately - everything had run out, cutlery, serviettes etc and tables weren't cleared. I will however say that the breakfast was VERY TASTY and they give you LOTS!!!! I felt sorry for the staff in the there though as they were really up against it.
At the end of the day it is a basic little camp but if you go with an open mind and make the best of it then it is possible to have a laugh and enjoy yourselves! People who pay pittance and expect the ritz are a bit out of order in slating it so much! WAKE UP FOLKS!!! Most people there only paid £9.50 from The Sun!
