“Great place, great value, will go again.”
Reviewed September 11, 2010

Ignore all the negative comments. This is the third time we've (me and my two kids 14 and 7) visited this particular Center Parcs and we will be going back. We've not encountered any of the problems stated in any of the other reviews.
Just stop and think about what you are getting. We paid €650 for a premium cottage for a week's stay during the UK school summer break. That's for a fully equipped dwelling with two double bedrooms, living area, kitchen, bathroom & loo. In the living room there's a flatscreen TV with HDMI for your games console (worth taking if you have one) and a home movie unit. There's a second TV in one of the bedrooms. Also take your laptop as all cottages have Wi-Fi. As well having access for emails etc., you can even play online with your friends if you wish!
Dont forget the price includes free access to some facilities e.g. Aqua Mundo and Discovery Cove. If your children are under 12 or so they will want to spend most of their time in these two places while you relax assuming you don't wish to join them!
The key to a successful visit to Center Parcs is planning. Look at the park map and choose your location based on your needs. Balance proximity to the Market Dome against other requirements e.g. privacy or outside play facilities (of which there are plenty).
You can save money by taking food with you. Especially for easily prepared meals e.g. pasta or rice based meals. Stop on the way at a local LIDL or similar for frozen goods.
I can't imagine ever staying at a UK Center Parcs. The typical cost of a European site is half that of a UK one and, ven when the cost of getting there, it is still a saving of hundreds of pounds/euros. And yes, doesn't matter where you go, all the staff speak English.
If you are not happy with the European approach e.g. buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner then stay in the UK and waste money but don't moan because it is different.

we enjoyed our holiday but found this site lacking in outdoor play areas for children and the villa was smoky and grubby. we moved from the first to another which was slightly better. after 30 minutes in the firts villa i was feeling nauseous! It was a kids villa with bunk beds and childrens toys - OK but the carpet was filthy!

That being said - the Aqua Mindo was great despite having very feq family changing cubicles and the Discovery bay indoor play area was excellent.

Wouldn't go to this parc again though

we have just returned after giving a week in the Park, we travelled with our own three children age from 5 yr to 2 yrs. Also with us was my two brothers and my sister familes all who have children in around the same age. We had a great week the faciliates are great, the aquamundo is a bit smaller than the one in Certer Parcs Lac De Lallittee in France but it was still super and never got too busy, we always mangaed to get seats near the kids pool where our kids spend alot of their time. The Pirate Bay which is a seperate building was a huge hit and the kids wanted to go every day even though we did manage it with all that we had to do around the park. The prices for the activites in the park are very resonable and between us all we used quite a lot of them including the high adventure, canoning on the lake, zip wire, wind surfing and the archery, the kids also went on the pirate treasure hunt in pirate bay which was excellent the staff here were superb and the kids loved them 1.5hrs only cost €6 per child.
The food was reasonably priced and there was a resonably good selection although we cooked in the house ourselves quite a bit as we had brought food with us. there is a good supermarket and although a bit expensive was very handy for the extra bits and it accpets laser as do all of the shops and bars etc in the village there is also a cash machine on site. There is a supermarket in the village near by JUMBO which is very good, but just bear in mind it only takes laser cards from Belgium or Netherlands you will need to bring cash if traveling from outside these countries.
All in all would highly recommend this as a destination and our eldest kid is really only now getting old enough to start to really make use of all the facilaites but they still loved it, i can see use visiting center parcs ever year for the forseeable future. The Europe Center Parcs that is as they are about half the price of the UK villages and this easily makes up for the time spend travelling, we normally drive, but my sister and brother flew to Eindohoven and hired a car however they said they would not bother hireing a car in future but organise a taxi as it is not that far and would work out cheaper.

We have just come back from this center parc. The reason we travelled here was because the exact same holiday was more than double in England at half term. We paid well below half price( for a premium V.I.P cottage with very large sauna shower room)! We would only have got a comfort villa here for well over double. The set up is exactelly the same. Aqua Mundo excellent almost duplicate of Elvden. Surroundings lovely. Restuarants dissapointing, not open all the time in fact most close very early. But is does appear that most familys take their own food. No one blowing whistles in pool...Parrots and flamingos in dome!! Prices in supermarket reasonable.Bread rolls crossants and english paper by door in trolley every morning free of charge!! The web site tells the truth and does a really good live look around.

Just come back from a weekend break and was left feeling very unsatisfied. The accommdation was very basic even though we had booked a VIP villa and it was filthy dirty throughout. The carpets were stained all over and the toilet was unusable due to it being left with brown stains down the front. This was sorted out quite quickly but not the relaxing start to our holiday.

The swimming complex is good, but a little tired. However would not pay for the additional half board as you are only entitled to go to the one restaurant which is a buffet and not very appetising.

The shop and bakery sold very good produce and Hammonds restaurant was good value for money.

The activites were o.k. but pricey.

I would not recommend this centre parcs to anyone.

We spent a week at this center parc complex . we have been to the center parcs in the UK ( Sherwood forest and in the Lakes ). the accomodation was very similar and the set up almost exactly the same . The park is more attractive however and we got a villa right on the large Lake .
There are numerous cyle paths outside the complex and as it is so flat it is easy to travel some distance quite easily . the park do sell a map at about 9euros of all the cycle paths but this will probably not be of interest to all but the most enthusiatic of cyclists .

If i were going again in the summer and had an inflatable boat I would consider taking it . You can take boats onto the the Lake but you are not allowed to swim and many people had brought their own infaltable boats /canoes .the lake is very deep and the bank shelves VERY STEEPLY . Therefore the idea bout a boat is really for people with teeenage children who can swim well .

Activities in the center are expensive - a tennis court is 16 euros per hour , badminton 12.50 euros and bowling 20 euros before 6pm and 22 after . not sure how this currently compares to the UK .Some things like the petting zoo are free and even our teenagers enjoying going to see the animals . Thereare also sheep which roam the park and it was fun seeing if you can se them

The supermarket in the complex was being refurbished when we were there but it had a reasonable selection of stuff . There are several supermakets around - we liked the Jumbo supermarket in Luyksgestel best - it is easy to find as it is on the main road and you may well drive in that way when you arrive . i would take a reasonable clear map of the area -road signs are not as good as in the UK .

we had a good stay and would be happy to recommend it - our accomodation was fine .English was spoken by everyone who came across - and spoken really well so the lanaguage issue does not apply ( apart from making us feel slighly ashamed that our language skills are poor )
