Just returned from a 4 day break at the Wave Hotel Bognor in the Butlins Resort. Never been to a Butlins before but with a 3yr old decided to give it a go. Really good to be honest - we booked the sea horse Room with a balcony which was perfectly safe even on 5th floor with a little one. The room very clean and tidy and his little bedroom with the bunks and tv screens on the wall brilliant touch. Kept him occupied at night when we wanted to relax. Also good first thing allowing us to sort ourselves out for days activities while he watched peppa pig and bananas etc. The breakfastood package really good too - food very good and kept us going all day. Never booked the dinner package so cannot comment on that. The bananas show was very good very professional as we went on a just for tots break geared for the under 5's. The downside of course is nothing really to do at night for adults as once shows etc over its back to room time. Now the warnings. Being on a resort the restaurants etc closed at 9pm and are expensive. If you are a family of four with the full board dining package then you could expect to pay maybe 50 60 pounds per night with drinks for you and kids. Your cheap butlins break suddenly becomes a 6 to £700 pounds getaway depending on how much you order. Especially factoring in the little bits and pieces you will end up buying through the day. If I was to return I would definately book the full board package and try and get best deal possible. Around £350 for the full package for 4 nights for family of 3 or 4 and snap it up. Would I go back - yes - But like I say beware the expense within the complex.
