We've been here many times as the location is amazing and if you get the weather you just can't beat it. This time we stayed in one of the Willow Log Cabins overlooking the pond - so restful with such a lovely outlook from the deck. Just a short stroll to the long sandy beach, our daughter loved the Zip Slide - there are two on the way to the beach together with some swings. There is also free putting (clubs and balls outside main reception) and you can play as often as you like. My husband is a keen fly fisherman and there is also a fly only pond on the site. The main pond is no fishing but it's great fun feeding the massive trout there some bread - you can see how big these fish are in the very clear water. The accomodation itself is fully functional, good size, with good wardrobe and drawer storage, very clean. Has some Sky channels and DVD player - the only wee niggle - the WiFi was touch and go more off than on - probably the system was overloaded with all the techy gadgets people have these days - we had taken the Wii to watch Lovefilm and Netflix and couldn't watch either for a week. Apart from that everything was brilliant. There is a grocers shop in Benderloch for food shopping and another shop with outdoor/giftware etc - for those forgotten wellies. Next to those shops there is a brilliant hill walk with great views at the top. The sealife centre is also just along the road and has been updated a bit since our last visit. Places well worth a visit are Poppies Tea Room And Garden Centre on the way to oban - lovely cafe with snacks and main meals and football size meringues along with lots of other homebaking - also has a gift shop, Also the Lochnell Arms Hotel in Connell does a brilliant Sunday carvery 12 -4pm well worth a visit. Also the Falls of Lora Hotel the other side of the bridge in Connell does a very nice lunch. All in all Tralee Bay Holiday Park is great which is why we keep coming back !
