Me (26) husband (26) son (2years) daughter(9months) booked our short break with the sun package holidays £9.50 we paid this plus extra to get an upgraded gold caravan. We arrived at 2:30pm receptionist given us all the information. We were on the middle part of the site which seemed a bit odd as there are gold caravans on the lower levels ( there are 2 very steep hills to climb and trying to push 2 buggies what a nightmare) we wanted to not use the car or very little during our 5 day stay but we had to use it all the time ( plan of saving on petrol money went out the window ) the caravan itself was ok nothing overly special but for an extra £80 for the upgrade I felt it was pricey and not worth it. We went to the entertainment everything is outdated felt like we had stepped back 20 years the arcade or lack of wasn't what we expected even my 2 year old asked to leave after 5 mins. The entertainment time table never followed the plan on the booklet given when you arrive we went 4 times each time the sparkys store was closed they start putting on music and little games when it gets to around 8:30-9pm now my children are in bed by this time this clearly hasn't been thought out by the planners near enough everyone with children there were of the age of my children as it was in school time. We bought from the patio bar once all I can say is reheated and microwaved it was absolutely dreadful never tasted anything as bad we even tried again asking for a portion of chips £1.99 for the smallest tray which were like cardboard the texture of reheated chips we asked for refund when they handed them over as we say we were not going to eat them they stunk of stale fat or cooking oil it reeked another elderly couple was heard explaining about their upset stomachs after eating there so stay clear !! There is nothing to do there on site or outside the park if you take a left then a right at the mini round about drive straight on past the gold course you come to a remote drive on beach area perfect for picking shells it's beautiful and so picturesque we stumbled upon this on our daily drive out to get out of the caravan (watching tv was impossible the tv signal was no existent asking for help we got that it was bad weather) there are no other chippys or take aways the cafes were full wall to wall with elderly people and couples not ideal to take lively chatty children as well behaved as they are I doubt they would like to hear my sons versions of if you happy and you know it and row row row your boat :).
We drove into Aberystwyth ( the roads are awful my son was car sick on a daily basis the windy roads just not good at all) again nothing to do stupid one way weird system full of students , cafes and same shops you would get anywhere else. We went to borth animalarium £26 for 2 adults all outside and it started raining all the staff looked so unhappy to be there there were poor animals being soaked big animals in tiny cages I think the animal welfare would have a real field day there so stay clear unless you like ring upset watching bored animals rubbing there heads against their cage out of boredom or lifeless animals mopping about :,( awful. We couldn't wait to leave just 2 weeks before being here we had stayed 7nights at haven in Prestatyn and what a difference. This site needs a transformation down to the stupid awkward useless speed bumps to the children's play area on a steep hill ??? Why ?? It's not for young children even the swimming pool daily was over crowded or quite chilly ! This wasn't out first choice with the sun holiday Unfortunatly you can only accept what your given we are very openminded on different resorts but never again will we be retuning.
