“What a blast!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

We stayed at Butlin's at one of their live music weekends (Love the 70's) and had the most amazing time! Upgrade to VIP at just £20 each it's well worth it for the private bar let alone everything else.
The whole place was friendly,lively, clean with superb staff who couldn't do enough for you. We dined in The Deck which was really nice, cook stations as well as a buffet it was fab!

“80's Weekend Megatime!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

Everything was just one big party. Great value! Can't rate in enough! Saturday is defo 80's fancy dress and if u don't, u will feel a bit left out. Brilliant atmosphere, brilliant cheesy 80's music.

“DO NOT HOLIDAY AT BUTLINS”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

If you want a family holiday you would be better off to use another company other than Butlins, I went to the wave hotel at Bognor last summer was impressed so booked to go again this July, this was booked start of September last year, only to receive a call out of the blue 3 days ago to say that the managing director's have changed the programmes for the year and because they had changed to a tots week we were not allowed in to visit on the week we had booked holidays from work and could not change these dates.
You can imagine telling a 12 year old they had destroyed his summer holiday, Now I have to wait 7 days for them to refund my money, what a joke, Will never use Butlins again and advise anyone looking at going there to check and think twice before doing so to save disappointment and the frustration.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us.

It’s lovely to know that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us in July and were so impressed with our Bognor Regis resort.

We’re really sorry to hear that the change in our breaks has affected you. We are introducing our Just for Tots breaks in 2014 to offer something very special for our younger guests, this decision was based on demand for these breaks from families with children under 5.

In total, across all three of our resorts there are thirteen Just for Tots breaks. This means that we still have many Showtime breaks that offer all of the usual family entertainments that you are used to.

All Guests who were affected by this change were given alternative options, we are sorry that these were not suitable for you.

In terms of the refund, we will of course do all we can to ensure you receive this as swiftly as possible.

“Best time ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

We booked a New Year break and were delighted. Our nine year old son had a fantastic time - swimming pool, football clubs, party dances, geocashing, kayaking, and much much more. Great family entertainment during the day in the amazing pool with waves, flumes, dingy rides and lazy river. Funfair and ice skating. Nice buffet food at Decks and great pub food at Coast. Evenings were stacked with full on fun from Red Coat games and gigs to tribute acts from Olly Muirs, Take that and Michael Buble. Over all it far, far exceeded our expectations. Our son had a great time and because he was happy we were very happy. Can not recommend it highly enough and think that the red Coats go above and beyond the call of duty to engage the young people and help them get the best out of the experience. Bravo!
