Just have to say thought pitch sizes were on small side, toilet -shower block nice and clean, but to go in casual camping field you would need to be a mountain goat

A very nice site if a little expensive.  We have visited the site on and off for the last 8 years and enjoyed every time we have been.  The Clubroom and Pool are nothing to shout about but satisfactory and safe for kids.
 
Having 16 teenage and young adults in our party (21 of us in total) we find the local area keeps them occupied without us having to drive them around everywhere.

Excellent Park. Showers were hot any time of day and very clean. Very well maintained site. Had a problem with the electric hook up when we first arrived but staff were very helpful and cheerful and soon sorted it out for us. Club House seemed a bit scruffy and the toilets weren't that good but overall this was a very good campsite, I will definitely go back there again.

Expected it to be busy but you could not park your car next to your tent but on a small road thus leading to double parking.
The playground was at the top of a hill so steep that even the grown ups struggled to get up/down.
However, great for tiring the children out! Playground itself was ok.
Toilets/Showers need updating and even though site was very busy there was plenty of hot water.
 
Swimming pool was good 15 minutes walk with the children and was average.
 
Reception, you needed a bike to get to it and the beach is not 680 metres from the site.
We didnt use the beach at Dawlish as found Exmouth to be better but if you dont want to drive the twenty minutes etc then it would take you about 30-40 mins to walk.
 
Pitches were marked and you were shown and told to park in between the white lines??? What lines and how come large caravans complete with extensive awnings etc seemed to take precidence.
We could see into next door very clearly and thought this must be against fire regs.
 
Would we go again--NO.

Stayed here in August 2006 with OH and two girls aged 6 and 4.
Whilst you expect everywhere to be busy during the holidays, I think we had the better pitch.
The pitches are very very close together and no room to park your car except on the minute road that therefore led to double parking, so you were stuck if another car tried to get past.
The playground whilst central to the site was at the top of a very steep hill and felt that this was some what dangerous as little ones kept on falling down all the time, even when walking. Having said that it did exhaust them out.
We generally felt very packed in and I was sure this was against fire regs.
Toilets / showers were ok with hot water.Didn't have to queue but did get up early to get a shower most mornings.
Shop very very basic indeed. The beach is not 680 metres and takes good 20 minutes walk. Nice little bakers on the main road stocked with fresh bread etc. We only used site for base but each night we returned it felt more like a game of sardines. The caravans seemed to get the bigger pitches and the one opposite us had HUGE caravan with awning, three tables 4 windbreaks and a BBQ Jamie Oliver would be proud of. It made us giggle because each morning she would get her hoover out and begin hoovering!
The staff were pleasant and did show you the the pitch but then had the nerve to ask you to pitch between the lines of which there weren't any.
Would we go back No thank you.

Me and my family stayed at golden sands last week and we stayed in a chalet. We came here last year as-well we had a brilliant time and we have decided that we would be going again next year. The entertainment was brilliant, from reading all the other reviews i found that people thought that the music from the club in the evenings was very loud but staying at the club from when it opened to when it closed we did not notice the noise and also are chalet was not right next to the club.
 
When we got there the chalet was very clean and unlike the caravans the shower was really nice and warm. We only had one problem and that was the cooker, we had to put things in the oven about 4 hours before it was time for tea. So most nights we ate out at the club.
 
Also I found that there was not an awful lot of things to do in the day for the kids. Also all the kids stuff in the clubs are based on about around the age of 5-10 but with us having kids at the age of 12 and 13 there was nothing for them to do. Everything in the club was for adults or younger children but they still had a great time.
 
I would recommend this park to everyone cause it is great for all the family.
