Only 35mins from the ferry and if like us not been before not the best signposted site we have been to, so was a bit stressful to say the least, but, once there Wow! what a site, it has a full size amusement park with roller coasters etc and directly next door a huge water park loads of slides waves etc and needless to say the kids thought all there christmas's had come at once, and were gone allday and absolutely loved it and slept very well (blessing), a very clean site great shower toilet blocks dotted all over site, washing machines in all of them, at the centre of the site a great underground bar, restaurants, supermarkets, they hire bikes go carts etc and a very very security conscious site regardless of walking in, on bikes or car you will not get in without a pass which I liked and all this (apart from hire items) for one price, no extras for amusement park or pool obviously a family site and not that quiet, as for price very on par with uk and my fav bit cycling, it's such a cycling country it's fantastic with your own cycle paths everywhere and I mean everywhere and your own traffic lights on main roads, A couple of miles from beach with bars, restaurants showers sun beds and again very clean, If you don't like camp shop prices just across the main road outside camp is a small quaint town with a supermarket shops bars ice cream parlours etc all in all it knocks any big uk sites for six, a fantastic site as long as you have kids. If I had a downside it would be a couple of weeks before we went we got through the post a camp map with our pitch marked on it with site directions and upon arriving had to find our own way to which we did but I thought it was strange for somebody not to come out and check you had pitched correctly etc but maybe that's there way??

This is our 2nd time at this site which should be an indication of what we are about to say. We have two boys aged 10 and 6. This is a brilliant site the fun fair is fantastic with appropriate rides for all. During our visit we've been to other cities as it is central and well located.

Over the road is waasenaar itself which is a beautiful town with plenty of restaurants and pubs. Please check out lucianos ice cream parlour. If you have been to better and cheaper let us know. There is also a supermarket called jumbo with some shops like a butcher's bakers and most importantly a wine shop. Stravenger is amazing too with lots to do on the beach.

Tikibad is better than anything in England and cheaper. End of.

The down side for this site for us is the lack of maintenance on the pitches themselves. We booked online but didn't reserve a pitch so we got stuck on the rustic camp area and honestly I can only compare this to a refugee camp with vile toilets. We complained and refused to stay there and eventually got put on a field which which was perfect after months and months of them saying they were fully booked. Great spot too on the field next to the fair. The site itself ie. Hedges could have been maintained a lot better as well.

If you do go. Book early and reserve a pitch!

The toilets and showers are spotless. Overall for what you get for your money. Excellent. We will definitely be going again!

Second visit right at the end of the season as a two night stop off before getting the ferry from Ijmuiden (about 40 minutes). Booked direct again before the end of January to get free entry to the Tiki Pool.

Because we'd strayed into off season the choice of pitches was limited to a few areas (our preference of the Ijland was closed) so we ended up in the Romantische Camp which was probably a better pitch than last time and because the place was quiet we had a huge area to use.

As last time, rides and park are great with the new wild wings being addictive and a good addition. Kids love the place.

We wanted to leave later than the noon kick out time but just hitched up beside the pitch and went up to the park for a last blast and left around two with no hassle.

Reviewer: Ajh2001 9 reviews from this member

Our first try at camping with the trailer tent abroad. A world apart from the tiny, quiet site we are used to in Cornwall so I was rather apprehensive. I needn't have worried - it was FAB! We went on the CCC rally, just in case we felt we needed any back up. We were on the Romantisch pitches - far enough away from the main park that it didn't disturb us and to make it worthwhile for the boys to have go-karts for the week, which they loved, and also meant few day visitors wandered round this far.

The toilet/washing up facilities were generally spotless and rarely had to queue. A separate area for bathing smaller children was available too.

Our pitches were separated by hedges/trees into smaller groups of approx 4/6/8 pitches so it didn't seem as big as it was - though tbh we didn't get round the whole park - hoping to go back next year with friends.

We decided to chill for the week and not bother with much outside the park other than a couple of bicycle rides, so we relied on the on site shop and restaurants, which were a bit pricy but we'd brought essentials with us so it balanced out. Pizza's were lovely. All you can eat buffet was pricey but my boys made the most of it - especially the ice lollies!

While we were there the weather was amazing, if a bit too hot, so we lazed around, popping into the amusement park for a couple of hours, lazy lunch or tea and went to the waterpark later in the evening. We thought it would be quieter than it was - it had cooled down inside there by 8pm but was still very busy. We were told it wasn't usually quite so bad but the hot weather was bringing more people in. How you're supposed to supervise your children if you're not following them around is beyond me. We stayed put in one pool and told the boys to come back to us after every 5 rides - it worked for us!

The amusement park wasn't as busy so we rarely had to queue and enjoyed trying out some new rides.

The outside water area was great when the temperatures got too high, as it was freezing! My youngest splashed around for hours while I hid in the shade overlooking the pool and managed to read a couple of books while we were there!

All in all I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it more than I expected and we're all looking forward to going back next year.

We stayed at Duinrell for three nights on the start of our European trip this year, it's a huge site attached to a theme park not far from Amsterdam. My children agree 10, 9 and 6 absolutely loved it!

It's easy to get to and the site is very good value, it includes free entry to the theme park and rides which is brilliant considering the cost of the tickets. The only thing it did not include was entrance to their spectacular water park. Unfortunately we didn't go in to this as my children were to young for me to take them in on my own (single parent) however there is an outdoor pool which is completely free to use in the theme park. The play area in the theme park is great and has some fantastic slides.

The toilet block was kept very clean and although sometimes there was a wait for the showers it was never to long.

The only downside I can find is the actual pitches, our pitch was quite tight to get in to and the trees scraped down both sides of our motorhome to get to the small field we were in, the pitches looked a bit shabby, uncut grass etc however we fitted out motorhome on and made the best of our stay. This is the only fault I can find.

There is lots of things going on on site, great restaurants and take away, a pub, a shop that sells pretty much everything, bike hire, go kart hire etc.

The staff at reception spoke very good English and were very helpful.

There is lots going on in the village just outside the site too and some really lovely bars.

We visited Amsterdam while there, we caught the bus from the car park of the theme park just outside the entrance into Den Haag then caught a train into central Amsterdam, so easy and definitely worth doing instead of driving in.

My children definitely rated it as a 5 star, I would say the grounds could do with a tidy (bushes trimmed and grass cut) however do not let his put you off especially if you have children.

We will definitely return.

Second time we have stayed here the first time we stayed in a canvas static which was very small and cramped. The kids love it so we returned for a few days this year on our way to Germany in a campervan. We stayed in the field overloop which was very cramped and noisy. We were awoken at 8 every morning with music from the park which came from a speaker next to the field and went on all day. The other camping fields looked ok though.

Toilets were very busy and inadequate for this area too as they were shared with day visitors to the park and were closed for cleaning around 9 am which was annoying.

The park is good and plenty for the kids to do. Shop is good and lots of good shops in the town. Very good for cycling we rode to Leiden which was a nice town.

Wassanar is lovely place. I wouldn't rush back here but if you have kids and havent been before its worth a visit.
