We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Sand-le-mere.

Our holiday started the Sunday before Easter and we returned on Easter Sunday.

The main reception/entertainment complex has been built within the last few years and is modern and clean. Housing a large entertainment club, swimming pool, restaurant, arcade, gym and small shop.

The site's primary business is static caravans of which there are row upon row.

The touring field has 51 pitches of which all are hard standing with approximately 6-8ft of grass between pitches with a tarmac road running around the field. Electric hook-ups are located close by. Rubbish bins are located around the perimeter of the field. One potential problem is only one chemical toilet and waste water disposal point. Rock pegs are required for pitching awnings.

The main complex houses a swimming pool with a splash pool and slide and a main pool with a max depth of 1. 5m. Family changing facilities are provided as well as lockers using a returnable £1 coin. The pool has a soft touch floor which I guess is to prevent stubbed toes when swimming in 1. 5m of water.

The entertainment club is large with seating for approx 500 people. We visited it Mon-Thursday easily getting a table to sit at. By the Friday/Saturday at 7pm it was standing room only unless you wanted to sit in the adjoining restaurant bar. Prices for drinks and snacks are reasonable for the venue. Food prices for breakfast and meals are cheap and plentiful offering excellent value.

One of the disadvantages to the close locations of the touring field to the entertainment complex is the noise levels can be excessive sometime until the early hours. Maybe best to request a pitch further away from the main complex if you want a quiet night time.

There is also a coffee shop which overlooks the swimming area which serves pleasant coffee with TV's to watch. A soft play area is also available for the under 10 to play in and burn off some energy. Close the front of the complex is a large children's play park which is close enough to the touring field to allow the kids to burn energy off whilst tea/lunch is cooked but still be within earshot.

One of the main reasons to visit the main complex is the free Wifi offered by Sand-le-mere. Fast and easily connectable.

Hornsea and Withernsea are the local towns to visit with light houses within both and local shops.

Hull is a little further afield but is well worth the extra miles. The Deep is the main attraction, fish in tanks. Hull city in more interesting. Hull Old Town quarter is very quaint with cobbled streets and historic builds. The William Willberforce Museum and Hull Museum of Working Life are all worth a visit and are FREE to visit.

The Market Place car park was the cheapest and most central located we found. £3 all day to park, compared to £10 in a shopping centre car park!

When we arrived (the Sunday before Easter) the touring pitch was a quarter full and all park facilities could be used and enjoyed. When we left on the Easter Sunday people were queuing to pitch on the touring field and the site was struggling to cope with the number of people occupying it.

Overall an enjoyable stay but not during peak holiday times.

Overall the campsite is tidy and quite modern as the owners have spent a considerable amount on the main building. Tourer field is clean and tidy and statics seem to be decent, pool is small but suitable for young children. Entertainment is limited and cheap as you would expect, nothing for adults to do unless you drink, couple of pool tables and a penny arcade all in quite a confined area. Now for the negative bit, camping field for tents is a disgrace, very dirty, ground is appalling and pitches are crammed together no space for playing or parking your car. Think again before camping at this site. Site very secluded nothing in the immediate area except for a golf course but you can't play if you don't have the correct foot wear. We certainly won't be returning.

We have just returned from a 2 night weekend stay at Sand le Mere. The location is lovely and remote, which we liked, but maybe not good if you want explore the surrounding areas. They seem to have spent a lot of money on their reception and entertainment building, which gave a great and reassuring first impression. We were immediately told the toilet block on the tent pitch was out of order, but were directed to others we could use. The tent pitch itself was a little crowded, and we were practically on top of the tent behind us. We made the best of it and managed to squeeze the tent on. The redirected toilet block, which we were told wasn't far, was in fact a good 5 min walk away, so with 4 children needing the facilities at different times, I seemed to be constantly walking to and fro. They were clean on the friday, but come Saturday they were smelly, dirty and hadn't any toilet paper.

The indoor pool was a definite hit with the children. The changing rooms were modern, clean, spacious and most importantly warm! We all used the showers here, as they were infinitely cleaner than the site ones. There was also a small indoor play area, coffee shop and small supplies shop. We couldn't fault these facilities at all. We didn't use the restaurant, bar or evening disco, but heard it loud and clear in our tent til at least 1am.

The biggest drawback of our stay was a large group of campers who spoilt the experience by shouting, swearing and fighting at 4am. They eventually topped it off by racing a car around the camp site drunk. We felt extremely vulnerable in our tent, and the whole site was woken up. The police were eventually called, but didn't make up for how scared we'd all been. The management never came to see if we were all ok, or offer any apology. Needless to say, we won't be making a return here.

A nice site and very popular. The pool and beach were a hit with the grandchildren. We never used the club but we could hear the acts from our van. Parking on the site needs policing cars parked in front of vans made it difficult for people to reverse onto pitches and in some cases getting off as well.

Most vans had two cars parked to a pitch. The serviced pitches are good, but the waste water drains would have been better sited at the rear of the pitch. The toilets and showers are ok but there, s only three of each. They were mostly clean but there were times when they could have done with cleaning more often. But it was due to some of the users rather than a fault of the site. The staff were all very good and polite. This was our second visit and we will certainly be back.

We visited here mayday bank holiday and if I'm being honest it was a gem of a place, our children 6 and 2 years loved it too. We could see where it may fall down at busy times as we were camping and if the allocated pitches were full it would have been a little crammed for our liking and there is only one toilet block with three toilets and three showers, these were clean all times I visited. The kids clubs seemed well run with activities all day long, the swimming pool was great and clean if not a little cold for the youngest but the eldest had no issues. The evening activities for kids seemed everything you would expect also, cabaret both nights was professional. The short cut path from the camping field to the main complex was one drawback as it had some small steps and was loose gravel, not ideal with a buggy but that said could not fault any other walkways on the park. Overall we enjoyed our stay, it had a nice feel about it for a large park, drinks pretty fair priced, food fair priced and not bad. Would go back certainly!

Just returned from Easter and on the whole we were quite impressed! Obviously they have spent a lot of money on the place and it makes a very good leisure complex. Kids entertainment was the usual stuff but both nights the star turns that were advertised were replaced by mediocre acts so we didn't stay long. Unfortunately we were able to listen to it till after midnight whilst lying in bed!

Toilet block and pot wash for tourers has an inadequate number of showers, toilets and sinks (I think the one in the tent field is being replaced) so is in constant use making cleanliness, loo roll and hot water a lottery!

Bar prices standard, food looked good but we didn't try it. It's advisable to ask for tickets for swimming as it is popular and this guarantees your places. Pool clean but cold and scarce baby changing facilities.

Shop poor and pricey, Aldi in Withensea only 10mins away.

A pull-in for tourers at reception and a more accessible water waste disposal would make it even better for tourers.

The Bengal Lancer in Withensea recommended for good curry!

All in all would go back.
