Just spent 5 nights over the Easter break. Been 2 years ago and nothing much has changed, the pool has had a bit of a revamp but its not much different than before and the water was too cold for us to enjoy it which was a shame. The site in parts needs a revamp as its looking tired, the area across the bridge where the Mash and Barrel pub is needs revamping. The touring site is really nice but they are close together, the toilet block is faultless. The beach is a good walk away but lovely. We have outdone our days at Haven sites as our girls are getting too old now so we now prefer quieter sites with more space. We have had a lovely break but wont be returning to this site again as we have seen others in the area that we prefer.

Lovely holiday park, loads to do for the kids and lovely walks along the coastal path to the beach. Facilities are really good, and more than enough shops etc although a bit pricey for the basics. However a 3 mile 5 minute trip gets to into town for the local supermarkets.

We didn't do any of the entertainment as it isn't really our thing and we preferred to go into town in the evenings, so can't comment on that.

Static we had was really clean and modern and would have owned that myself any day of the week. The only let down regarding the park was every time we tried to book an activity for my son it was usually full, except for days we already had other things booked and paid for(the mountain train and electric mountain for example) and could t cancel or change them.

But all in all a great park, really clean and would highly recommend.

Fantastic touring site with all pitches beautifully laid out.

Some are larger than others even though the warden insisted they were all the same size. I think she was referring to the hard standing only, but I was referring to the entire pitch. Some have no grass at all at the side, others have more and some are massive.

We were advised as a previous person noted, that we had pitched over the grass even though we had no wheels or legs on the grass, and had to move. I think it would have been better had she advised us of this before we pitched up. We understood why, as she explained that the grass may die if covered even though we were only there for a few days. What we didn`t understand was why this wasn`t enforced by everyone as she said nothing to our neighbours who even put their legs down on the grass and were there for 5 nights.

The toilets and showers are fantastic with just a small complaint in that there is nowhere to put your toiletries while showering and they are push button and last for 10 seconds. We all timed them.

We joined family in a static caravan, and so went in school holidays but even so I think 65 per night is really too high.

It is a massive site with lots of activities of which the only thing free is the fun pools and entertainment. Everything else is really pricey such as 16 each for the high ropes.

There are three Spar shops on the site and they are competitively priced. The one near to the tourers is the largest.

There is a beach on the site which is a 20 minute stroll from your pitch.

However, all things considered we would return to this touring site but not at peak times when the pitch price is not so expensive. Some people we chatted to only paid 11 per night for the same time that we were there because they had booked 12 months in advance and for four weeks. So that is the plan next year. Even if we didn`t use it for the full month it works out cheaper. Sounds like I am a cheapskate but I begrudge paying that price when other sites are as good for no where near even half price.

We only went to join family but did really like it.

We have just returned from 8 nights staying at this site just before the half term week.

Upon arrival you have to wait at the entrance to be shown to your pitch, we arrived at 11 check in was from 12, normally you would be allowed on early however we had to wait until 12 even though the pitch was empty - can't complain about that though our fault for being early. The warden greeted us and was very helpful, they are very strict on how you position your caravan we had to move ours by 2' even though we were just starting to set up inside - however it's suck a beautiful well maintained site I can see why.

All the pitches are hard standing and flat with gravel/slate for the awning. As the wardens don't like you to overhang the grass at the back it means the front of your van (if long) has to overhang the parking bit of the road, it's a shame they didn't make the pitches slightly bigger to prevent this - ours is only single axle. Next to your awning is a nice grass area too for sitting out on so I actually felt like the pitches were quite spacious and not on top of each other.

We don't use the toilet block however I always like to have a look at them, these were spotless and modern couldn't fault them.

We used the club one night which was fine, same as any other Haven really. We didn't use any of the restaurants. We did use the swimming pool a lot, we loved it. First couple of times we could use the baby pool which is all 0. 4m deep with little slides in it and a raft thing for them to climb on, best baby/toddler pool I've ever been in. At first the wave pool was closed as it looked as though they were re grouting the tiles, when that one opened though the baby pool then shut much to my daughters disappointment. I'm not too sure why, perhaps they didn't have enough life guards. The life guards actually are really good, always watching very attentive there has to be about 5 on duty at a time due to the shape of the pool. The rapids were good we enjoyed those.

The whole area is lovely, we'd never been to Wales before, we actually wished we had gone for longer. Black Rock sands beach is the best beach to go to in my opinion, you can drive on to the beach and then set up next to your car, my better than having to cart all your stuff from the car to the beach.

Overall this is a lovely park, the touring feels a bit separate to the other site but I like this however it's close to all facilities even for younger kids to walk. I would definitely recommend and I would go back, I've done this site, caister, wild duck, reightin sands and Perran sands and this is by far the best one.

Booked a chalet on this site through The Sun newspapers 9. 50 holidays as a short - early in the season long weekend break.

On arrival, we were given the keys and shown by the helpful reception staff on a map where to go.

You have to park in a car park next to the chalet park and take your stuff from the car to the chalet from there. There was a service road through the middle of the chalets, but guests are not allowed to use it. Shame really when you may have many bags to shift.

The site, was clean and litter free. It was raining heavily when we arrived and there was no surface water lying anywhere, so it looks like the ground could handle it.

The chalet was spotlessly clean, but was very dated looking. It had the odd paint splash here and there, and on furniture too sadly that made the age of them stand out even more.

Electric panel heaters for heating the two bedrooms, an electric fan heater type fire in the living / dining room and an electric towel radiator in the bathroom, and did a very good job at keeping everyone warm at night.

Our bed was clean but wasn't very comfortable, felt worn out and lumpy. When you've got back problems, you notice this. The duvet / quilt only just covered you both once in bed too. Don't know what the kids beds were like though as they never said anything.

The shower cubicle in the bathroom was tiny, in the corner of the bathroom, about a metre square and only about 2m high. I'm 5'10, so it felt cramped when I used it. But you could get it nice and hot though.

By the time we got settled on our first night, it was getting on, and so decided to have a meal at the on site pub, 'The Mash & Barrel'.

Or maybe not, we looked at the menu and thought it was very expensive!

Went to JD Wetherspoons 'Pen Cob' in Pwhelli instead. Only 5 minutes in the car, and it's about half the price.

And by the looks of it, many others from the site had the same idea. As you had to display an entrance / exit card in your car from the Haven site, we saw many of these cards in other cars next to the Wetherspoons.

The Spar shops on the site too are expensive, but fortunately never needed to use them.

Never used the site parks / amusements, or night time entertainment facilities even though we did buy the 'passes' as a 'just in case'.

The wife and kids used the pool though in the morning of leaving day before we left. She said it was cold, except for the 'rapids'.

We used the park as a base to explore the area. And there's masses of things to do in North Wales we think.

So buying the passes was a 'lesson learned', you don't need them as there's plenty to do off site around North Wales.

The Highland Railway and 'Electric Mountain' are two examples of what we did. There's still loads more to do here but we were only here for the weekend.

And so, would we return? It's a maybe from us.

A bit on the expensive side if you did pay full whack for what you get we think.

We took our van here for a short break, 4 days at 66. 00 so not to expensive, the pitches as already described are of the euro standard, our van lacks such mod cons so we just used our waste master and aqua roll as usual although we did use the TV hook-up point.

The pitches although nicely laid out are a little on top of each other, the toilet blocks were nice, modern and clean, water was always comfortable in the gents and ladies shower, be advised though that at peak periods I would expect them to be very busy as with many sites demand outstretched supply.

On our pitch there was some road noise but not at all excessive, wardens were welcoming on arrival told us where to pitch on the map and that was that, never saw them again. The site issues rules regarding awnings, gazebos, tents sleeping in awnings as all barred but people just ignored these.

The site itself covers a huge area and it is a bit of a trek from the summit area to the main restaurant, being a Haven site it was busy with the newspaper offer that many had taken and for such a break is an ideal park for families.

Would we go again, probably not but I can see the appeal if you've got a family.
