I had spent a long time researching holiday parks in Dawlish as it was my first time there, i eventually chose Welcome due to the great reviews. I am very disappointed to say that my experience did not meet my expectations.
When we first arrived in the bungalow the smell we were greeted with was awful. A mix of damp and dog! It turns out that the carpets were holding the awful smell. The bungalow had not been cleaned to a good standard, the fridge was rusty, the bed settee in the lounge was close to collapsing, the window in the kids room was not secure and everywhere was in need of a general updating. I spoke to reception who i have to say were very helpful and sorted what problems they could.
The next big issue i had was with the swimming pool, i took my 3 year old swimming and when we went to step into the pool there was a pile of what i only describe as rubbish on the top of the stairs (some sharp items) I then had to point it out to the two life guards (who were too busy having a chat) who promptly removed it. When we got into the pool i found pieces of plastic floating the pool!! The changing areas needed a good clean too.
I left my 5 day break feeling disappointed by the holiday park. On a plus Dawlish Warren was great and we found plenty to do with the children off site!
