We have just returned from two weeks at the holiday village. We were impressed with the hotel. It was clean and fairly large. We have 2 kids a 4 year old and a 14 year old so wanted something for them both to do and not get bored.This was the place to go. I hardly ever so my eldest wot with all the teenagers and the pools and my youngest thouroughly enjoyed the kids clubs.
Ive read some of the reviews and get the impression that all they want to do is complain.
The waiters and waitresses were all friendly but it helps if you remember to say please and thank you and smile. (Who wants to be nice to ignorant people) The maids were helpful and if you required anything they would bring up extra towels pillows etc.
The reps were friendly and couldnt do enough to help you.
Yes this is BUTLINs in the sun but we had an absolutely fab time.
The beach club is 10-15 mins walk so what!! when you get over there there is so much to do with all the different pools to swim in.
The meals at the beach side restaurant were lovely and varied. One of the negatives that I found was the bar at the beach club often only had on barman so you had to wait to be served for drinks.
The meals in the restaurant were varied and we ate well with no funny tummies betwwen the whole family. My partner even cancelled his sleep ins on a morning to indulge in the breakfast eating the cooked in front of you omelette, delicious.
The entertainment was ok the team worked hard and entertained us nightly, what do people expect west end musicals your on holiday for goodnesss sake.
The bar staff were friendly but only if you can be friendly to them so make an effort.
The few negative comments were quite a few of the sunbeds around the main pool needed to be replaced, some paving stones also needed replacing, and the pidgeons were a bit of a nuisance with their bird poos.
Overall if you have a family and want them to be able to make friends with kids their age and want a stress free holiday, ignore the moaners. come to the village.
Weve already booked for HV Turkey next year
