Very disappointed with the park, it seems that the owners are more interested in static vans and the general maintenance of the park was poor. The rubbish bins where smelly, the toilets also could have been better kept.

The pitch sizes are very small itís like other campers are walking through your awning. If I was asked to describe the park I would say it was Skegness on a Devon beach, On a positive nice walk to beach good for petís Will not be going back!

After reading very mixed reviews I was unsure.

But it seems that the company have spent some money on fixing the problems highlighted to them.

Our caravan was fairly new and spotless. The site is basic, but is small and friendly. We booked through the Sun and feel lucky that we got such a nice caravan. The 'Chalets' looked terrible - prison block style, this would make me hesitant to book through the Sun for this park again. If we have ended up in these I think we would have had a very different holiday!

The club house was a good size and entertainment was ok. Didn't use the pool but the kids all seemed to enjoy it. We walked down to Dawlish Warren through Peppermint Park, the caravans here seemed to a much higher standard (most privately owned I think).

Good points:

1.Helpful friendly staff.
2.Quiet peaceful location.
3. Clean, very well appointed caravan it really was nice and had a fantastic shower.
4. Site had a cared for appearance.
5. Handy small shop.
6. Only a short walk to Dawlish Warren.

Bad points none really about the site apart from a lack of recyling facilities.

Dawlish Warren wasn't really for us a bit Blackpool and static city but that dosen't mean it was bad it just wasn't our bag, niceish beach though. Nearby kids loved Pennywell Farm great day out, thought Diggerland was very expensive £45 for 2 adults and one 4 year old ( 2 year old was free) to get in plus lots of machines £1 here £1 there. Brixham was very nice enjoyed crabbing at the harbour.

We arrived at Golden Sands first impression was 'oh my god'!

Good points as follows:

1. Helpful Friendly staff.

Bads points: Not really sure where to start so here goes in no particlar order.

1. Very run down shabby appearance, litter, peeling paint etc.
2. Do not believe the website description of the Pool it was tiny. (We did not use it).
3. Exteriors of the staics that we saw where in a very poor shape.
4. Childrens playarea terrible, broken swings jagged metal sticking out overflowing broken bins it was really, really terrible.
5. The club house was full of Christmas decorations nothing for halloween at all as it was October half term this seemed a bit odd.

Walked through the touring area and it looked really poor muddy and very cramped. We had the misfortune to use the toilet block and it was shockingly bad.

After we had walked aroung waiting to check in we where not sure if we where going to stay or not, we wanted to see the static first.

We had booked a gold plus and on checking in where told they had none left and we could have a silver instead. We said NO WAY we would not stay in that case and so they offered us a gold plus at their sister park which is called Peppermint Park and oh joy of joys it was great, clean, quiet and well looked after. I cannot comment what interiors of the caravans are like at Grotty Sands as we did not hang around to look.

Ps: Pennywell Farm is great and Dawlish is nice, Diggerland is very expensive, Brixham is lovely great for crabbing.

Used this campsite to visit relatives nearby,a typical holiday type park with small pitches and large open areas,being Oct. It was quiet but dread to think what it would be like peak times Aug.
Toilets/showers adequate though a little outdated,reception was friendly, that said it was very cheap at £8 /night for two with ehu,hardstanding and own tap.
Site excellent for cyclists being mainly flat,I cycled along cycle route 2 to Exeter and back or you can take the train from nearby Dawlish Warren station with the bike if you want to.
Area good for walking also with a nice coastal path walk to Dawlish Town. Didn't use the clubhouse as prefer proper pubs the best of which was the GBG listed old nautical pub The Anchor at Cockwood with a nice looking menu and Otter ales.
Probably would return as a quick stopover if in the area and was out of season.

For the price of the pitch you would expect the ground to be level, but no quite a slope. Toilets always running out of hand soap and toilet paper, reported it several times, showering area very small, two morning sick on the floor at the entrance to the toilets. The only positive was the shop staff were helpful. The swimming pool was more like a deep'ish paddling pool, about 4 foot all over.
