As perhaps could be expected from a campsite with a theme park and Europes largest indoor water park, If you want peace and quiet do not go to Duinrell.

I've just returned from my second trip, and will probably go again.

Springbank 2010 was noisier than August Bank holiday. It was a German Bank Holiday and was full of lot's of large groups. It was noisy but I did not witness any anti social behaviour.

Duinrell is big. Lot's of pitches and lots of mobile homes.

I've stayed on Romantich Kamp, and would go back there again. The pitches are flat sandy and grassy with a good amount of hedge / tree boundaries.

The toilet/shower facilities are scattered around the site, and all were modern and cleaned regularly.

As expected for Holland, the campsite has a central hub, with fairly good quality restaurant, take away and on site supermarket. For cheaper and even better quality (the on site one is still good quality) restaurants, the village of Wassenaar is just across the road a 5 mins walk. Their is also a very good local market outside the site on Tuesday.

The beach at Wassenaar is beautiful blond sand, but can be windy V it is 6km - 15 mins cycle, or 40 mins walk away.

The kids enjoyed the hired go karts, the theme park, swimming pool etc etc.

In summary, is big, gets full, can be noisy, but is good quality, and loads and loads and loads for the kids to do

Broke with the norm and stayed in a Eurocamp ready erected tent. We were pleasantly surprised by size and equipment with the tent, we would definitely stay in one again. We took the Hull Rotterdam overnight ferry and the park was less than an hours drive from Rotterdam.

Duinrell is a paradise for kids, my 9 yr old son loved every minute of it. There are rides to suit all tastes from the gentle to the white knuckle type. Also lots of old fashioned play stuff like giant slides and playgrounds.

The site is very large but well set out into smaller areas surrounded by boundries such as hedges etc. The sanitary facilities were some of the best I have ever come across. They were always clean, plenty of loo roll, heated during the night and no queues. Saying that it was only Easter week and I don't know how stretched they would be in the height of summer but judging by the number of pitches in the area we stayed they would be ok.

The on site supermarket was a little pricey but convenient for those things you had forgot from town. Bread baked all day but rather expensive 1.59 Euro for a french baguette!

There is an Irish pub on site but give it a miss. Very expensive 4.50 Euro for a draught Grolsh, the only other draught being Guiness but never dared ask for that price! 2.75 Euro for a tiny glass of wine, a bottle from the local supermarket wasn't much more.

On site Takeaway sold usual stuff, burgers, pizzas, fries. Didn't try restaurant so cant comment.

We hired a go kart for my son 10 euro a day(did deals for 7 nights 50 euro) which he thoroughly enjoyed. He certainly got his moneys worth doing 'laps' around the site. During the day bikes and go karts are banned from the theme park but are ok around the site.

Had a couple of hours in the waterpark 'Tikibad', lots of slides, some scary some not so scary. Lovely lazy river and a fab wave pool which created lots and lots of waves. Only problem we found was that the water was quite chlorinated and gave us sore eyes.

Wassenaar is a 5 minute walk with a couple of supermarkets and a range of bakeries, butchers, veg shops etc. Came across a windmill in town which was a pleasant surprise! Definitely worth the 5 minute walk, follow the road straight opposite the site.

I would recommend this site to anyone with families and we are planning a return trip hopefully later this year!

I wont repeat what the other reviews have said as I agree with it all.

I would add that if you do have a touring caravan and want a bigger pitch, then book through the Caravan Club as our pitch was massive. (Romankisch area we were put in - I know some pitches were as little as 60 sq meters)

Obviously no mosquitoes in April - but with water all around, and we did see citronella etc on sale in the site supermarket, then if you go in the summer be prepared to be bitten.

Overall great site - love the show tunes music playing in the toilets (even at 4am my husband tells me), gives it a sort of Disney feel.

My only moan would be the park closing at 5pm = and even in summer 6pm - which does seem really early. (Falcon ride rules!)

Had a great 4 day break over Easter at this fantastic site, we had 3 girls with us aged 11, 8 and 7. They loved it. An easy 40 miles from Rotterdam approx 1 hour,only downside - could not get into the caravan until 3 pm in the afternoon and arrived at 10.30am so had to wander into Wassenaar town which was fine with small cafes and shops to browse through.

Lovely theme park suitable for children of all age groups, this is included in the campsite fees so great value as you just walk in and out, no hassle. Tikibad pool great as well, fast slides and clean facilities.

There is a nice beach also, outside the camp entrance turn left and left again and an easy bike ride on proper cycle tracks takes you a beach with about 6 cafe bars where you can sit and have a drink while the kids play on the sand. This bike ride would take about 20 mins but we only had 3 bikes so the kids rode while we adults walked and it took an hour (so beware)

We went to Amsterdam but wouldn't go again because it turned into a long winded journey on public transport (we kept missing our connections so had a long wait in bus stations and train stations) probably easier in car and when we got here it was pouring down and had to shelter in bars so maybe not a good idea.

The Irish bar on site is very expensive and only seemed to serve Grolsh or bacardi breezer, supermarket was well stocked and seemed reasonably priced but we took most of our food and drink because we were there only a short time. Overall really enjoyed this site and we are already looking forward to booking for next August

Just got back from this site where we spent the last week and a half of the school summer holidays with our tourer.

We booked through the caravan club and got a good deal - 880 for 8 nights on site and the overnight ferry crossing from Hull to Rotterdam including all meals on board the ferry.

The site is about a hours drive from the ferry terminal at Rotterdam (40 miles) and being in Holland everyone spoke English well (puts us to shame).

Site in general - Toilets and showers were probably the cleanest I've ever seen on a big site. Someone cleaning each toilet /shower block all the time.

The pitches where fairly small and could be difficult to get into if you had a big unit due to tight turnings from the main roads through the site.

Roughly an equal mixture of Germans, Dutch and English on site where we where however there are a number of areas on site that are operated by companies such as key camp etc.

The site has fairground attractions which are included within the cost of the stay - similar to flamingoland in the uk. Most things on site are expensive 4Euros50 for a pint, 2euros25 for a pepsi, 3euros for the hook a bag (which contained a small bottle of bubbles) - You expect to pay and get a daft teddy but I felt it was taking the proverbial a bit.

However if you use the local supermarket you can get crates of beer for around 6 euros - and a 4 euro deposit on the crate or a reasonable bottle of wine for a few euros.

The fairground attractions are good with a couple of good sized playparks for good measure. The only trouble I could see was that they would become full of teenagers around 10pm - didn't cause us a problem but may have been rowdy if you where pitched close to them.

There are also indoor and outdoor pools on site. We used the indoor pool - 3euros50 each for two hours. It was ok with a lazy river, jacuzzi, slides etc. However beware of the slides. My eldest daughter was scared witless by the 'moderate' slide. I went on the tubes with her which again was classed as a moderate but I would describe it as fast.

The site was generally a nice change from the UK. Everyone friendly. Slightly overpriced but no more than a Butlins or Centre Parks would be. The best part was the weather - We could have been at the south of France rather than Holland. Warm and sunny for most of the time with just a few hours of thunderstorms one evening/night. Pitch got slightly flooded but dried out by lunchtime the following day.

We went there for a week using night sailings on the Harwich - hook of holland route largely paid for by clubcard vouchers. We chose to stay on the Natuur-Kampeer-Terrein part of the site because of the private sanitary facilities. You can only stay on this part of the site out of peak season as naturists use it during peak season. There were few units on this lovely forested area and it was quiet although only a 5 minute walk to the theme park.

The big attraction of the site is the free use of the theme park for people staying here. There is also an indoor water park, but you have to pay 3.50 pp for 2 hours stay. The site is ideal for children. I think it is better to take most of your food with you as meals at the site areas are expensive and not brilliant.

The small town of Waasenaar seemed to be quite an affluent area and not a cheap place to eat out. Up the coast there is a nice beach at Katwijk.

For children I don't think this site can be bettered.
