Just returned from Riviere Sands staying Friday-Monday with family. We booked through Sun promotion and decided to upgrdae to luxury plus.
Arrived on park around 1pm, received a warm welcome from the staff on reception. We were given the keys although advised the caravan was not ready and that they would give us a call when it was.
Whilst we were waiting we decided to go & do some food shopping in the Tesco store about 8 miles away. Rception then phoned to say the caravan was ready so we headed back. We were given the keys to a basic caravan which did not feel like anything more special than what you would get if you decided not to upgrade to luxury plus. We went back to reception and explained that we had expected more having upgrdaded to luxury plus. Firstly we were told there was nothing elese available but then given the keys to another caravan. This was much better and felt like an upgrade. Clean caravan with general wear & tear but alot more spacious and modern than the first one.
The park itself is quite small and it feels like Haven have tried to squeeze as much caravans into the park as possible. The views and beach are amazing and the parks best feature.
Facilities are poor. They have a nice new modern cafe but thats about it. Pool & entertainment club very small, can't comment on entertainment in the evening as didn't use this.
The Bluff Inn pub is a short walk away and has gorgeous views but the food is very average and the place itself needs a major facelift.
St Ives, Newquay and Truro all close to the park and worth a visit.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay but would not return to this park.
If your thinking of going to this part of Cornwall i would stay at PERRAN SANDS. This park is one of the best around.
