Have just returned from 10 days at Les Sablons, the area is lovely and we had a really relaxing & enjoyable holiday - but only because we avoided the facilities on the site as much as possible.
Upon arrival we discovered that the directions from the airport sent out by Eurocamp were wrong - sending us in totally the wrong direction, when we mentioned this to the rep on arrival she said 'Oh its funny lots of people say that'!!!!!!!........ not so funny when a 20 minute journey took nearly an hour & a half and you have 2 tired hungry kids in the car,
The pools are nowhere near large enough for the number of people on site, its impossible to attempt to swim without getting kicked, elbowed or splashed
The sunbeds are shoehorned in together with no space to walk between, felt a bit like sardines!
The pool 'regulations' state that men must wear 'speedo' style swimwear, something Eurocamp failed to specify in advance, the onsite shop must be making a fortune & funnily enough they stock vast quantities of speedos, its almost as if they have guessed nobody will be aware of this rule in advance.
The entertainment team are very over enthusiastic to say the least, just when you are relaxing with a book they launch into a dance routine around the pool with blaring music, I can see that this is the kind of holiday some people enjoy but we just prefer to be able to choose what we do and when we do it, rather than have it forced upon us.
The site is also very noisy at night, although we were quite far from the main bar area you can still hear everything, also, people seem to send their children off roaming around the site on bikes, shouting & screaming, and kicking footballs against caravans, often until midnight,
Its fair enough that maybe this just wasn't the type of site that we like but I think the lack of space is a real issue, they have just crammed as many pitches in as possible without a thought to the lack of space in public areas
