I was apprehensive about booking this place after reading the reviews on here. It might be because the hotel was quiet, but I didn't have any of the issues that some of the reviewers have had.
A few minor gripes, the bar was badly stocked (only available bar snacks were salt and vinegar crisps and no lemonade) and the TV reception was poor (but I didn't ask them to do anything about it, so only myself to blame). They didn't start doing food until 6.30pm, which wasn't any good for us with a kid we want to get ready for bed at around 7.
Room was nice and plenty of space, but we were put in one of the rooms which had a name which you would assume are nicer than the rooms which don't have names. Breakfast was OK. No complaints about the service. Pool was nice, not too cold and very clean.
For what we paid, absolutely no issues with this hotel. I've paid more to stay in hotels not as nice as this.
And one thing about the other reviews on here. If the view from your room is important to you and you're staying in a hotel called The Beaches, then surely you would ask for a sea view. If the view isn't that important to you then presumably looking at Pontins isn't going to bother you.
