Just back from weekend break at Haven Caister holiday park,26th-29th April 2013 in standard caravan.
We always Have our hols at a Haven holiday park as the kids & ourselves love it !
Its the first time we have tried caister.The park is massive and so much to do you will not get bored!! most of the staff were friendly polite and service was good.There was a few things though what made the holiday not as good as it should of been,first of all the caravan,it couldn't of been further away from the main complex !! a good 10 minute walk,we put it down to us having a dog,the plus side the beach was only a 30 second walk away,the next problem was when i went to go to bed fri evening, the mattress on the double bed was the worst one i have ever slept on all the springs were virtually coming through all over it !! so had hardly any sleep the first night,First thing sat morn (tired) went to reception to complain although the chap did apologize and arrange for a different one to be sent to caravan it just wasn't enough after probably the most uncomfortable nights sleep ive ever had !! also the hot water never really got hot it was luke warm so having a shower was not nice,On the last night i was out with my son while wife & little girl stayed in van as she was tired, had a call on my mobile from a scared wife to say electric had tripped out in van it was 8.30pm so they were in total darkness ! luckily i saw a security guy driving around and told him and he went straight to caravan to fix it.We always stay in standard grade van and never had problems maybe just unlucky this time.
I really should of complained about all this when we checked out Monday morning but just wanted to get home.If we had not had problems with van the holiday would of been really good
