 The first time using the touring site.

The pitches are large with electric, water and grey waste, they have hedges for privacy and we found them fantastic.

HOWEVER. The hot water system is antiquated and 90% of the time, it doesn't work.

The cleanliness of the toilets is ABYSMAL at best.

I had meetings with managers, maintenance and reception staff about the problems and I know for a fact I wasn't the only one.

The problem, according to management, is the wardens walked out and they can't get reliable cleaners.

The management turned round and said they wouldn't use the toilets and showers, so draw your own conclusions.

The site itself is huge, mostly well kept and the staff I spoke to were friendly and tried to sort the problems.

The biggest problem is some people don't deserve decent facilities and would be more at home in a pig sty.

Would we come back? Yes, because if they can solve the issues, it is a great base.

 We have just returned from here on our first ever camping trip. Could not fault the place. Clean, friendly staff, large enclosed pitches, toilet and shower blocks cleaned 3 times a day, dog walking area was clean. We didn't use the bars or restaurants/cafe as we brought our own.

Dogs are not allowed inside on the carpeted areas but you can sit in the patio areas outside the amusements.

My son has an anxiety disorder and he was worried about the location of the pitch so the receptionist showed him a map of alternative pitches available and asked him choose one. It says on booking site only 2 dogs but we have 3 french bulldogs and was told this was fine as they are a small breed. We only booked for 2 nights as this was our test run but will be going back. The ONLY thing about this place is there isn't beach access but we walked upto ulrome to nearest beach access.

 Spent the bank holiday weekend here and was awful. Costing the same as other sites we have visited for over 30 years this has to be the worst! When we arrived and drove round to the pitch there was some undesirable looking pitches with Finnish strewn and looked more like people were living in camps but I was persuaded to give it a go. The pitch was fine but we enclosed ourselves in with windbreaks. Others arrived around is and it quickly became a game of who could play their music loudest between camps.

First visit to the toilets was a filthy floor and two of the four toilets had no toilet roll. When we returned the next morning for a shower the floor had been cleaned but the water from the showers trickled out. The next day there was no hot water at all in the shower block I visited so after I complained I went to another block which had hot water but there wasnít enough pressure in the water to rinse out the shampoo and the lock was broken on the shower door so I had to stuff the hole with clothing so no one could see in,

When I campsite canít even make sure there is hot water and toilet roll as a basic thatís bad. Defo wonít be visiting again!

 This is a nice place for a couple of days stay with open countryside all around. Skipsea is just down the road and Hornsea is only 6miles away for the large supermarket, shops, pubs and restaurants.

The site is large and there is pleanty of space on each pitch for your tourer, awning and car. The electric, water and waste are all at the edge of the pitch. Toilet and shower block are within a minutes walk of everywhere and they are clean and tiding.

Itís does say Skipsea Sands but donít be fooled you have to travel by car to the nearest beach you can get on.

 We have used this site lots of times, keeps the kids amused and is clean enough. The pool, bowling & play areas are Excellent. Has a small dog walk, launderette and shop. Close to seafront (via steep cliffs!) and a chip shop. Will go again for definite.

Reviewer: BillieP 1 review from this member

 I just came back from my holiday today and it was fantastic. I had so much fun. The best parts of my time there was been at the club from 6pm until half 11pm. There were so many different things going off but my favourite part had to be when the 3 girls were dancing around, singing, playing games. Just entertaining us completely. The 3 girls who are at the club almost every night are wonderful, caring, kind and loving young ladies. They made me feel very welcome every time I was there. They were all brilliant with the kids and kept them on there toes all night, I've already started begging to go back there again. Every night me and my mum would go to order food and I'd always pop in through the door just to watch them dancing around. There is different acts every night but the 3 girls are my favourite. For anyone wondering how to get to the beach for the Parkdean Resorts Campsite; if you go down a path next to the 'kingdom' arcades and keep walking along a bit someone has made steps on the edge of a cliff that my family used everyday. Spending a week here has made me want to get a job like this one day, they're amazing. I can't wait to come back here again! 10/10 for everything. Sorry it's long but I just needed to make sure everyone realises how good of a holiday park this is and to book as soon as they can.

 Since our last visit 2 years ago there have been some good improvements.

Pitch sizes are good, 10 x 10 metres but only some have the privacy hedges and a couple were water logged and very muddy. I'd called about a week ago with a request for a specific area and was told they do what they could but when we arrived they had no record of my call and we were placed somewhere completely different. However the gentleman (I think he was called Samuel?) managed to move us closer to where we preferred to be so a big thanks to him.

Facilities are plentiful, 2 separate blocks with 4 loos and 3 showers in each, we never had to queue and it was busy.

The clubhouse and bar have had a revamp and it's much better with more seating and upgraded furnishings. The new bar and restaurant staff are so much better than the previous bunch, friendly, helpful and attentive!

We used the pool and the water was lovely and warm, again an improvement from previous visits and the girl and 2 gents on there were so pleasant.

The entertainment team were superb, once again a huge improvement from our last visit and especially Sam! She was amazing!

On our last day we went for breakfast and what a bargain, 2 mini breakfasts including toast and hot drink for £7. Once again, the restaurant staff were brilliant.

We'd fallen out with Skipsea Sands due to its lack of friendliness and state of array, all of which have been addressed and so we will definitely be back.

Well done Park Resorts, you've finally brought Skipsea into the 21st century.

 The touring park at Skipsea is nicely laid out and not too far from the main reception block (but far enough) pitches are a decent size with their own water taps, toilet and shower block are OK but could do with a little TLC. The bars and restaurants are the usual Park resorts type quite expensive, and the entertainment mostly for the kids, but just outside the main gate and next door is Skipsea club whitch for a small membership is much cheaper with better entertainment. Very handy for Bridlington, Hull and lots more on the east coast this site is well worth a visit

 Just got back from a 5 day stay at skipsea sands, reception booked us in quickly & gave us a map to locate our pitch, which could have been marked better, had to ask another camper what pitch number they were.

We pitched our tent, which we had plenty of room & hooked up. Make sure your electrical cable is long, when booking we got told that we couldn't have a gazebo, but when looking round we noticed that a caravan had a awning attached then a gazebo at side of that. Not pleased.

Toilet block was in need of attention i. E gents have 3 toilets 2 with locks, showers had 3 showers 2 with locks. & dirty due to mucky people using them. Not cleaning after themselves. Dirty, no fault of staff.

After Bank holiday weekend most of the noise lapsed due to kids & loud parents left site, also toilet block became cleaner,

Saying that could do with more regular cleaning.

The site is dog friendly, that's why we booked ( nothing against kids, got 2 ourselves. Grown up now) good dog walking area. Some people need to pick up after there dog's & able to read sign's. Dog's on lead.

Also booked because the site has a dog friendly beach. Which it does just difficult to get too.

The site provides quite a lot for families ie pool, amusements, tenpin bowling, play area etc. Good on site shop, bar/ restaurant & entertainment bar, but to say that they are dog friendly your not allowed in to bar with your dog. So not so friendly.

There is a chippy & private club on outside of site ( beer cheaper in club).

After saying all that the site is nice to be based there. If you have kids. Then great, if you don't don't do what we did & go when kids are off, great for cheap get away.

 Just returned from a mid week stay at the sands, , brill touring site plenty of room on all pitchs water tap on each too. Pitchs well away from the static, s. That's a bonus. Toilet block clean and didn't seem to be abused, cant be said for a july/aug visit when the kids lare let loose. Good dog walk round site although some owners don't seem to clean up after them. By the size of it its the owners with big dog s to blame. Clubhouse of a decent size but ale prices bit steep. There is a big tesco in hornsea not far away for all your beers. And grub. Shop on site to cater for your basic things. Pool was not busy but warm water, steam room and sauna all free on your passes, Dont forget to take them with you. Pitch 74 and all for £18 for 3 days with electric. , but will go up in the rugrat holidays. Be back later on in year. Well done park resorts
