“Holiday from Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

My family and I first stayed here about 10 years ago and we totally fell in love with the place! It has changed alot over the years but only for the better. We go back EVERY year as we just cannot stay away and now its like a home from home. The facillities are fantastic, the pool is great for all ages, the arcades, takeaways and pubs or clubs are just a walk away they are kept clean and tidy and the staff are perfect, couldn't ask for better. The beach... WOW! just a quick wlak away from whereever part of the site you stay on, we are normally located near the enterance to the park as we stay in a relatives caravan and it doesn't take us 2 minutes to walk to the shop, fish and chip shop, pub or entertainment. We honestly love the place and cannot get enough of it, it is even better the next time you go and it never gets boring! It has to be a place to give a go, because honestly you'll be hooked!

Holidayed here in 2013

We have been to Parkdean sandford in Dorset, cherry tree in Norfolk and now Trecco Bay, Wales. Trecco Bay is our favourite yet as it is right by porthcawl beach. We stayed in a lovely new Cornelly caravan and the beds were already made up, there is also an en-suite in master bedroom. Don't forget to bring a baby monitor if you have a young child as the master bedroom is on other side of caravan so you may not hear him/her at night. Caravan very clean.

Entertainment - You can't beat sid and lizzie! Staff were great fun. We did notice though, same kind of shows as year before at Norfolk but kids still enjoyed it. Talent show was so funny.

Indoor pool was quite busy and therefore your time there is limted to an hour.little ones.Theres a main pool/slide and a small pool and slide for little ones. The life guards are very on the ball. The park is very clean, main restaurant has a great food choice (even for vegetarians!) plus reasonably priced and i wish we had eaten here every night as the take aways are quite expensive but aren't they always on holiday parks?! Gift shop reasonably priced.

Local area - The children had donkey rides in porthcawl and there was also a funfair. They can explore the many rock pools on beach when tide is out. Coch castle isn't far away, well worth a visit and it has a lovely tearoom. Tin mines interesting in Abergavenny , lots of history and very well set out for children as it is owned by the National Trust and they provide activity packs for kids to complete going round the mines.
If you are self catering there is a large co-op in Porthcawl.

We would definitely go back to Trecco Bay

We visited Splashland while visiting family and the children had a great time in the pool and on the slide. While there, the children had food which was quite expensive but they enjoyed it. Lots of things to keep the children amused. Bowls and Pool Table were favourites too with the children.

This camp would be great in the summer, but unfortunately, for a new years break, quite dissapointing because all the shops on the camp was closed, the slide in 'Splashland' was off because the boiler was broke and there was only the showdome and the sportsman open (very good price for the large pitchers), but atleast the entertainment staff were brilliant, friendly and very good looking-Gary and Kerry were my favourite, easy to get on with. But overall, I really enjoyed this new years beak, because of the caravan, 10/10 for facilities, cleanliness and comfortability. It was the caravan that definetly made my 5 day break great, oh make sure you take towels because hand towels, tea towels and bath towels were not given. P.S the bargain booze opposite the road entring the camp, was very reasonable in price. The beach is fantastic!!!

Awful! Nothing open! Pool bolier broke. Amusements closed. Never again at Trecco! We thought this would be nice break for the family over new year but never agian. The only good thing was that the caravan was nice. Small but nice!

Stayed in trecco bay many times,last twice thought we would upgrade to a higher spec never again will go for the lower spec next time cheap and cheerful,the first time we stayed in willows,poor cleanliness cushions mouldy and damp also net curtains were also mouldy and it was damp mattresses,after arriving home my elderly father who looks forward to going ended up in hospital with bronchitis,also plumbing was terrible fishy smell out of the shower every time we used it this time we booked for a family new year in chestnut, my holiday memory came home with us we are all itching like dogs after sleeping in the beds no plastic coatings or protective covers on the mattresses DISGUSTING! Will be going back again as overall it's a great family place with good entertainment but lesson learnt will be staying in a lower spec as they are so much cleaner ,but will be taking our own mattress protectors just in case their needed,

Room Tip: Just by paying extra doesn't mean u get better
