Pontins Pakefield Holiday Park
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Stayed 5 days end of November 2013. Catering fine and food OK. Staff all friendly and helpful. Chalets adequate and clean.
Entertainment absolutely dreadful. The entertainment manager should be fired and his team of Blue Coats reorganised. The male specie of the Blue Coats are somewhat embarrassing in their general manner. Their leader, also embarrassing for the same reason, is repetitive in his ramblings on stage and not at all humorous.
Games room great and swimming pool very warm and enjoyable. Games room could be swept now and then, but equipment in good order.
All in all, for the price enjoyed our stay.

Stayed: November 2013, traveled with friends

Excellent value for money , much cleaner then we expected. Food very good for price paid. Pool clean and big enough for lots of families. Very good entertainment for children , kids very happy and asking when we can return. At that price will be considering soon.

My husband and I have recently returned from a Mon - Fri Turkey and Tinsel break. If you want 5 star accomodation and food this is probably not for you. However, we had everything we needed for a most enjoyable few days. Chalets were small, but now have fridge, micowave and small kitchen sink as well as usual kettle. Also toaster, crockery, glasses, cutlery.Entertainment was good, aiming at pension age holidaymakers. Food was self service, with 3 choices main course dinner. There was also a salad bar with various cold meats.Brekfast included cereal including porridge, full english, We did not feel hungry between meals.

We stayed here in the school holidays for a mon-fri break through the sun newspaper, with 2 children they was easily pleased, the weather was really nice when we was here which helped if it had been raining there would not have been much to do. We arrived and got keys to our room which was not suitable for 3 people so they moved us to one of their brand new apartments which was lovely and clean with lots of space so that was a bonus, all I can say is or a cheap sun holiday it was OK and did the job not a bad break away

Our three families had a brilliant weekend away, entertainment, pool, food, all very good value. Our only complaint was that the food bays closed far too early even when the staff could see there were many more people queuing for breakfast/dinner. They shut two bays and let people queue for over half an hour - ridiculous - and could have been avoided by leaving these food bays open, it really is not good enough!

arrived at pontins at pakefield on Mon 18 Nov for 5 days. when we finally got the keys to the chalet we were very upset to find the rooms smelt damp ,more so when we unpacked the bedding bales we had paid for to find they did not resemble any type of bedding the single sheet must have been at least 15 ft long and the double duvet was of a silky material not at all like what was shown on their website when booking ( a case of pontins miss selling ) when we unfolded the double duvet it looked like someone had died and lost some of there body fluids with large brown stains and also blood stains covering parts of it.the bathroom was filthy all black mould around tiles scum around taps on tiles and the floor could have done with a good wash,the food was horrible as it was turkey and tinsel themed week i pity anyone who has paid to go there for Christmas day and had to pay a lot more then i paid as the Christmas dinner was not enjoyable both brussels and carrots rock hard yokshires wet and soggy overall the meals were poor .i and my family will certainly not be going back to pontins

Room Tip: do not go to pontins at pakefield if you are going do not buy a bedding bundle take your own

Four night midweek break, all inclusive.
Took a club room as electricity is included; heating is electric, so on all the time in the cold weather. Plenty of hot food 3 times a day, good selection, but not 5 star, self service only. Plenty to so, swimming pool open also.
Very good value for money.
