We did a weekend break, booking last minute so ended up staying quite a way out in the forest in villa 638. It was a luxury 3 bed villa with a 'steam room'.........the steam room however turned out to be a shower cubicle with steam facility, my daughter assured me it was fantastic.
The villa was nice, it lacked some basic utensils for serving food etc. The ovens were not very practical. The villas still have the same ovens as they did when I last visited CP back in 2006. I suspected that the ovens were so awful to encourage more people to eat out in their resturants instead. They just take ages to cook anything, it took 2 hours to do roast potatoes. We only had 2 small saucepans too, which was tricky when trying to cook for 6 people however the house-keeping team were brilliant and got more saucepans out to us very quickly, brand new ones too.
We used the land train to get about, its an excellent service and worked well. Swimming was great, so was the sports area. Centre Parcs has always been a favouite winter holiday resort for us its still great, but I notice that the standard of the restuarants have gone down hill. We ordered food in the sports cafe and all 6 meals were delivered to us in less than 5 minutes, everything looked microwaved and I'm not sure the chips were even made out of potato. One night we had a takeaway delivered, this was a great service because you could order either Chinese, Indian or Pizza all at once and it was delivered hot to the villa within the hour. Some of us ordered the madras curry, we love our curries, but this bad boy was the hottest madras I have ever eaten, it was more like a vindaloo, so be warned. :-)
The staff at Centre Parcs were great, always helpful and lovely to deal with. We will definitely be back again.
