Lovely, lovely, lovely! Toilet block/showers on hand. Playground within sight of our caravan, felt very secure when son went to play. Lovely little village within walking distance, could park the car and leave it for duration of the holiday. If need be, a shopping complex 15 mins down dual carriageway. Sea gorgeous! Beaches gorgeous! Site owners a pleasure to meet, will be back very soon as we totally enjoyed our stay at Shoreside xx

Chose this site as the site we usually stay on was fully booked. Owners were very friendly on arrival. We found a pitch next to the park as we have young children and like them to be close by. The downside to this pitch is it is on a slope so wouldn't go there again. There are lots of flat pitches near the entrance though.

Our children were subject to the bullies on this park and once again it was because my daughter dared to introduce herself and try to make friends(this is not an issue if your children are happy to stick up for themselves as they run away then).

The toilets and showers were fairly basic to be honest, another downside is there are no hand driers or paper towels provided to dry your hands after using the toilets. As said in a previous review it is quite a large site and the hot water does not last long at all. We only managed one hot shower during our stay. There is no washing machines or driers to use on this park which has been a massive plus to us on previous camping trips

There was a lot of noise until well after midnight coming from the park area and kept us all awake.

The location of the site is very good and rhosneigr is a lovely place for a holiday :)

First the pluses - very accommodating owner who allowed us to book 11 pitches in a combination of tents, motor homes and caravans all in one area. We paid 20 per night for our pitch inc electrics. The surrounding area is lovely with superb beaches and forest walks/bike rides in easy reach. Big Tesco down the A55 10/15 minutes away. Village in easy walking distance with a couple of restaurants and pubs.

And the minuses - this site is set up for the statics. The site covers a large area on each side of the main road and has two toilet blocks, one on each side. There is only one washing up sink for the whole site, so be prepared to queue or wash up at your pitch. We stayed over the spring bank holiday weekend and I never once had warm water to wash/shower(even at 12. 30AM!), never mind hot. 10 out of the 11 families left a day early because the weather suddenly turned very bad and most of us were washed out. There is nothing to do on Anglesey if the weather is poor. Two of us suffered badly damaged tents due to high wind - but our family received a refund for the cancelled night. Summary? Stay if going out of the busy period and you want hot water.

This site seems to be largely taken up by seasonal tourers into water sports and everyone else slots in around them. The seasonal campers were friendly enough (with the exception of a few of the kids - see below!)

First the good bits!

The price is very reasonable - 20 per night per pitch regardless of how many people.

Location - It's a half mile walk into the village of Rhosneigr where there's a couple of convenience stores, restaurants, chippy and a pub. The site is also next to the golf club where you can go for a drink. The beach is long and seems popular with water sport enthusiasts. Unfortunately the weather was pretty atrocious for the duration of our stay so we were not able to take advantage of the beach.

The site is very laid back - we were literally just given directions to the pitch and left to our own devices, without the usual list of do's and don't's.

Now the not so good bits! Perhaps if we'd had better weather, the good points would have outweighed the bad, but as we were pretty much confined to the site due to torrential rain and wind, the bad points were perhaps more noticeable.

Facilities are pretty basic - toilets and showers are in a small block with a tin roof. The showers are very basic and never seemed particularly clean. I chose to shower outside of what might be classed as busy times as I was warned that once the hot water runs out you have to wait for it to heat up again. There is no shop on site.

Electric is only 6amp - so ok to keep the basics running but you might have problems if you try to plug in too much.

RAF valley - this might be considered a bonus for plane enthusiasts (and fans of Prince William who is based here!) but for us it was just a little too intrusive - being right by the RAF runway means low flying jets throughout the day (although I believe they stop at weekends).

The play park - some of the kids who are on the seasonal pitches seem to rule the roost here. Our kids only went to the park twice for this reason - the first time they witnessed another girl getting a mouthful for introducing herself and the second time our kids were subject to a torrent of abuse for no reason.

All in all, probably one of my least favourite sites but if the weather had been better, my review might have been a bit more positive.

We decided to book after the Easter bank Hols to avoid the crowds, boy did we get that right. You could have walked from one car roof to other on the cars coming out of wales on the A55 / M56.

Shoreside was peaceful enough for us, large fields and with our last minute booking we were given a sheltered corner out of the prevailing wind.

The location is five minutes walk from great beaches and rock pools.

The kids certainly enjoyed the playground and were able to use the adjoining empty field to play in. They did however get some 'attitude' from kids who were on seasonal pitches believing they owned the site.

We did not use any of the local pubs / bars etc so unable to comment on them.

The RAF did provide us with spectacular acrobatics each day so any plane buff out there would certainly enjoy this site.

We stayed for five days in total and the kids did not want come home and neither did I.

My only criticism would be the cleanliness of the toilet blocks. These could do with a scrub and would not miss a quick refurb.

However in balance at 20 per night per pitch (no matter how many kids dogs etc) there is not much to grumble about.

Spent 5 nights at this site just after Easter weekend. Great location for beaches and shops a short 10 minute walk into the village. As mentioned in other reviews the showers are basic but were always clean with plenty of hot water. There is no shop on site and I ran out of gas while there and had to buy gas from the shop in the village as the site do not sell gas.

The nearby RAF Valley provided hours of excitement for the children with jets and helicopters flying overhead from about 8am to 5 pm.

The children's play area consisted of swing, slide and an old boat for the children to play on. Although basic the children had a great time playing there and there was a lot of space for them to run about.

The only downside to our stay was the electrics. At least twice a day we lost mains power even though we only had the fridge and low wattage kettle running, the power would go off even though nothing else had been switched on. I don't know if this was down to a fault or others on the site. There were very few people about and a lot of the 'vans appeared to be seasonal units. Speaking to another site user the supply is 6 amp.

In general the site is basic but good value and we will be returning again, hopefully when its a bit warmer !
