Am shocked and surprised at some of the reviews on here. We visited brean sands in the October half term and we had a lovely time. I'm not saying it was perfect but for a short break that cost less than £50 it was fine.
Here are the positves The chalet was small and very basic but was clean and enough for the 4 of us (2 adults 2 children 8and4) the entertainment staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough to help. we spent one day off site at a farm then the rest of the time on site as there was plenty of activity to keep us going. The pool and changing area was clean on the day we went swimming only draw back was the slide was only open for 15 mins. Daytime we watched wrestling, took part in a quiz, went to a Halloween party, and the children even had an hour in the arcade with the bluecoats playing on games for free. The arcade wasn't great however the candy floss machine was utilised every night.
The negatives. Had to arrive early at the fun factory in order to get a table and seat despite signs telling you not to save seats or push tables together whole groups would leave bags on tables or leave 1 person sitting there and then come back 2 hours later and nothing was done. Onsite takeaways chicken place was nasty and often ouy of what was advertised, fish and chip shop was nice food but only 2 staff members on shift and food took almost 40 minutes to get though at least was cooked to order and not sat under hotplates. There are a choice of takeaways just ouutside camp and on brean leisure park there is a Starbucks for a decent coffee. All in all for the money paid we had a fab time and people should remember this is not a luxury resort and turn up with an open mind instead of reading bad reviews and immediately thinking the worst.
