The 3 bed waterfront villa was excellent, warm and well equipped. The park was quiet and relaxing. Our teenage boys loved the Flow Rider surf machine. Great for cycling both inside and outside the park.

Not a 5 star for sure! Not better than the 4 star ones, probably worse overall. I have been to 5 other ones and this was by far the worst one compared to the rating. Go to one of the other ones or choose the hotel accomodation on site.

We really enjoyed our holiday! Our kids are 5, 3 and 1 and this location was perfect for them! If your kids wake up early like ours do be aware that the pool and restaurants do not open until 10! It was an easy family break!

Room Tip: Bring your own pillow! They have a stove top but not an oven-just in case you plan on cooking.

Comparable to the UK in many ways. Our cottage was very clean and well maintained, similar layout and age to UK. Staff very friendly and speak brilliant English. Swimming pool complex had something for all our family (3-10 yrs), again very similar to UK in terms of layout etc. Kids loved the Turbo Twister and wanted to have a go on the flow rider, but it was fully booked.
The restaurants and cafes offer reasonable value and choice

Went for half term and for a whole week which was a fraction of the cost of Centerparcs in the UK. Chose De Eemhof as close to Amsterdam.
Everything you expect from Centerparcs - except no squash or badminton. Aqua Mundo (pool area) was superb with the added attractions of the Turbo Twister ride on blow up rings, and the FlowRider indoor surfing which was excellent fun for all levels and a good novelty.
The kids did the Cool Factor mission which at 15 euro was good value - 3 hours of, climbing, rafting, BMX bikes and more.
It's a compact site easy to find way around, and with bikes especially it's no trouble at all, and very flat of course!
We took the overnight ferry from Harwich to Hook of Holland and I can't praise Stena Line enough. Great value (especially if you use Tesco Clubcard vouchers too!) so cost us £210 for return trip including car, 5 bikes (no extra charge for those), 5 people and cabins. Bargain, and very very well run.
We also went into Amsterdam for a day - well worth it, only a 40 min drive to the Arena where there is a superb park and ride. For just 8 Euro you can park all day and it also includes free public transport on metro/trams etc for up to 5 people. Great bargain well worth knowing about.

One of the bedrooms in the Centerparcs villa did smell a bit damp and musty and they did come and spray but it didn't really help. All villas back on to water which was nice, see the ducks etc. Accommodation clean and recently refurbished.
All in all a very easy and great value holiday, I would really recommend and much much cheaper than the UK for those who need to go in school holidays.

Having stayed several times before in other centerparcs in the usual cottages this time we decided to try one of their new apartments overlooking the marina at de eemhof. Ours was No 60 on the top floor. This was spacious and had a wonderful view. There were many good features such as ample space for 6 people with 3 reasonable bedrooms with twin linked beds. There was a high vaulted ceiling which seemed to make all sounds louder and this was a problem with two young children and a conflict between hearing the tv and making a meal in the attached kitchen. The balcony required constant supervision with the children.
