“park good but food terrible”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

if you want food dont eat in the park restaurant the food is over priced and not very good the chips are frozen chips which must have been kept warm for hours then re flashed in the fryer. the waiter who brought our meals droped the garlic bread on the table and said please pick up your garlic brad as it is face down did not offer to replace it. the portion of the pasta was more like a childs portion. the mixed grill was ok but the gammon was wafer thin the steak was also very thin. also the bar was very under stocked and even had no ice for the drinks.
we stayed in a bronze bungalow for a weekend in august which was fine for our needs but he main door had not been cleaned properly as it had nose marks from a pet still on it and hand prints on the glass also the door could have had a net curtain on it for privacy, we would probably stay here again if in the area but would defiantly not eat in the complex.

This was our 3rd year of coming to St. Margaret's Bay Holiday Park - Park Resorts, this is our 1st review, we had booked a Mid-Week break from Mon-Fri in July, the Park was very clean as it always is, All staff were very helpful and pleasant, we had telephoned to say we would be later than expected, everything was waiting for us on arrival. The caravan we had booked 2 bedroom bronze as we have a dog was very clean and tidy the cleaning team do a great job (well done.) The groundsmen are very approachable and show you were to take dogs on the park, the area for dog walking is spacious and clean. There is a shop and Laundrette on site but we have not used them so feel it is unfair to comment, The Teamstars, Nikki, Bekki and Martin did an excellent job in keeping everyone entertained, Go Teamstars!!! The food was reasonably priced and to a high standard, but I felt the bar was a little low on choice and stock. Overall we had an enjoyable stay and have booked for next year.

We stayed for 1 week in July, booked a Gold plus caravan. The van was clean and tidy, spacious with a bonus of an extra en suite in the master bedroom. The location is great for exploring the Kent coast. All staff were friendly and helpful. It is only a small site and was surprised to find the club house quiet , but this didn't faze the teamstars who did a great job of keeping everyone entertained. Thank you to Niki for keeping our last night balloon free !

We arrived on Monday for a midweek break with our two teenagers 14 & 15. On arrival the site looked clean tidy and well maintained. Check in was very easy and the staff very pleasant and helpful. We had booked a 3 bedroom caravan gold plus as we have a son and daughter each needing their own room.On arriving at the caravan we were very impressed, it was virtually new and immaculate. All beds were made with brilliant white clean fresh linen the whole van was beautifully clean and prepped for us, well done the cleaning team !!!! The caravan had an added bonus of having a shower room with toilet and hand basin and a second cloakroom ..... very useful with two teenagers!!!!
We ate most evenings after a day out on site as it was good value and very good no complaints not even from hungry teenagers. The cooked breakfast in the mornings is a must it was exceptionally good value and set us up for the day ahead. The swimming pool was clean and tidy and was quite quiet allowing us all to have a leisurely swim.The Jacuzzi was wonderfully warm and empty of people most of the time so we were able to enjoy a leisurely soak in peace.
Our only complaint is that the evening entertainment is awful for adults and teenagers, but fantastic for children. We are not criticizing the enthusiasm of the staff they are doing their best but for teenagers and adults its not good at all. We have been to other Park Resorts where the evening entertainment range from early eve for little ones to late for teenagers and adults. The young children of 10 and under were still singing Karaoke at 10 o clock where as at that time it would have been good to have had a cabaret and been geared more towards more adult time but at this site it was not really the case at all and quite disappointing.Most evenings were spent in the lounge bar playing pool.Dover Castle is a must go see trip a fantastic day out
and the new wartime tunnels are really good but expect crowds so get there early.
All in all we had fantastic weather, immaculate accommodation and a clean peaceful holiday park.We recommend this park !!!

We went 22nd June for one week. Sat and Sun entertainment was ok, nothing special. The rest of the week the bar was shut and no shows! The Arcade was tiny and covered in litter. The Accommodation was nice and spacious. The place is a good stop off point to go site seeing. We were put off going to Park Resorts again when we booked up for Valley Farm.See my review.

Room Tip: Choose a Bungalow.

had a lovely 5 day break here through a newspaper holiday offer. The van was breath taking, normaly don't have a great van but the one we had was new, plenty of room and was honestly complete luxury. The only complaint I have is we had a very noisy neighbour who liked to play there guitar with amp and sing on the mic, although it did stop at 10.30pm! The pool was great not to busy which was great meant my 14 year old cold enjoy a good play ad swim.
thanks for a great holiday

Excellent accomodation, we had one of the lovely brick built chalets, right next to the swimming pool . Although it was quiet in the entertainments the Funstars Becky, Martin and Nikki made it for the kids, only wish more families supported them in the evening events. Great to not have a packed swimming pool as well. Will come again, great escape for my as a single dad.
