Absolutely adore this site. Facilities good but the location made it incredible, the beach is unbelievable ! We travelled with 3 dogs and we had a lovely time.

Great on site shop, good laundrette, beach entrance opposite with a lovely marsh reserve leading to the biggest sandy beach with loads of shells and great for a good run with the dogs.

Very busy park but staff were friendly,. Long walk to the facilities like shop, amusement arcade etc but you can drive down.

First visit to this site, did not venture up to the main attraction areas so unable to comment. We solely went to visit the nearby Little Tern colony. We also took the cycles and rode along the coastal path.

The site was fairly busy, hard standing and grass pitches available all with EHU.

Disappointing to find only 3 showers for such a large site, but the facilities were fairly clean.

A excellent park for families that has loads of activities to do from swimming to bungee trampolines and lots of shows day and night.

Touring pitches are clean and have access to a small play park right by the plots, the pitches are at the beginning of the camp so the clubs and main complex doesn't affect sleeping, right behind there is a pub but noise is minimal after about 8pm and is great to relax while kids play in the park right next to it.

There's access to the beautiful beach near the pitches, a shop just off camp, a arcade, cafe, pub and they are a lot cheaper and only 5 mins walk over the railway bridge. The toilets for touring are clean and are locked with only tourers allowed access which makes them a lot more convenient.

Overall the park is a lot of fun for kids, has beautiful views, clean, well kept and has a regular bus service into Prestatyn and Rhyl town centres for days out and shopping trips. Highly recommend for all action families or easy going families with young children to relax.

We have just come back from preshaven sands. We stayed in newer model standard caravan, it was spotless. We had a few problems to start with but they were sorted within minutes. Half way through our holiday the electric tripped, the maintenance were there in minutes. Great holiday. Can't wait to book again. Very friendly staff

Would recommend it to anyone, you'll be sure to enjoy yourselves

Second visit here, I have to say much better visiting in the spring than Autumn.

The caravan was clean and tidy with plenty of room for two adults and two children.

Although it's a big site and very busy I didn't feel it was too busy.

The pool is lovely and the facilities are good for a family holiday. Site is right next to the beach which is lovely.

Only real criticism is the price of the goods in the on site restaurant, expensive and not very good quality and each time I've been there's been a really long wait which is a nightmare with young children.

I would return though I think it's good value for money

Just stayed here for a long weekend on a euro pitch. The touring site is fairly small compared to the other haven sites I've been on. The toilet block was very tired and in need of a major refurb which according to a fellow camper is being done at the end of this season. Unlike all the other Haven sites I've been on, you can choose your own pitch when you arrive. Our pitch had a good sized grass area next to it which had a picnic bench on it. There is a pub right next to the touring site which has a play area at the rear which my lad loved playing on. The main complex is a good 3/4 mile away. There is a free mini bus running all day which you can ring to take you too and from the complex which is a nice touch. There is a railway line next to it but it never bothered us. Overall we had a nice weekend here and the only fault being the tired toilet block, but as said earlier the next time we visit hopefully will have been refurbished

Very good site and clean, the park was good for the kids, and the fun bus man was very nice and friendly, kids really enjoyed the swimming pool and lazy river. Think it needs more staff on the desk to book activities as they was a really long queue, staff was nice in the arcade even open the shop on a day it was ment to be closed because it was are last day, would come back to this site, kids loved the go karts x

Moved to Presthaven from Havens Greenacre site at Porthmadog. We had booked 4 nights and first impressions were very favourable. The touring site is at the entrance to Havens Presthaven sands site. It is a good 15 minutes walk from the entertainment complex but a minibus provides a regular service between the two. The usual supermarket, fast food, amusements and bars are all here.

The name Presthaven sands suggests easy access to the beach however the beach area is behind large dunes and in a lot of areas is wet and more muddy than sandy. It is a massive site, but the touring area is quite modest. It has a a mix of grass and hard standings, with the hard standings having recently been upgraded. They have the same format as the Greenacre site, concrete pads, stone area and a good grass area with low hedging between. Presthaven differs from Greenacres in a crucial way, the touring area is alongside a public house. The first 3 days of our stay were problem free, as the pub was shut. On Friday it opened and so did the floodgates! dozens of people crossing the touring area to get to the pub. This coincided with several youths playing football in the pub grounds. As the pub and touring site are only separated by a low hedge this game soon spilled over onto my pitch (11). Words were exchanged and despite this the kick about continued. Rather than escalate the situation I decided to go home a night early.

It was clear that the weekend influx onto both touring and statics brought with it issues with standards of behaviour, litter and noise. I have made Haven aware of my concerns and personally I would never return to this site over a weekend. I don't wish to be completely negative as this site does have a lot to offer.

The toilet facilities are fairly old but kept nice and clean. They seemed poorly heated and it took some time for hot water to appear. They are accessed by a key that requires a refundable charge of £5.

A regular bus service (every half hour) gives good connections to Rhyl, Llandudno etc. For a reasonable charge (£10 family rover ticket). A children's playground is situated between the pub and the touring site.

Looked at this site, usually have a touring caravan but as the touring site is virtually a mile away from the entertainment complex, we decided to rent a static van instead to be closer.

What a mistake, we where at the top of the site so still 3/10ths of a mile away, (you can get a shuttle bus but they charge 50p per person inc. Small children) but the biggest issue, we opened the door to the static van and a smell of wet dog hit you.

Inside, the carpets and seating where covered in dog hairs, Dog slime all over the windows. Later found out the Ignitor on the oven was broken, and there was a leak under the vanity unit in the sink in the bathroom, so constantly cleaning up puddles on the floor.

When I reported the issues no replacement was offered but two cleaning ladies did come out for 10 minutes, Vacuumed the floor, cleaned the windows & spayed fabreeze around. But the smell still lingered for the whole weekend.

The complex itself is good, two bars or entertainment rooms, a large restaurant & separate Bar, very large amusement arcade. A Spar shop selling all the basics. Everything for the kids, but all charged for (I would of thought they would be inclusive in the price?)

Overall the complex is good but just let down by very poor cleaning & maintenance of the vans and charging you for absolutely everything.

Would I go again - NO there are much better cleaner & well laid out sites around which offer the same type of facilities at better rates.

Hope this helps

This was our first visit to a Haven site it was very busy as expected being half term. We were on a super pitch next to the railway line the hardstanding was level and plenty large enough for our 6 berth van there is a small gravelled area for a awning and our pitch had a picnic bench. Our main problem was the drainage all the services are situated well behind the van, our water hose and electric hook up reached but not the drainage pipe even though it is extra long so the warden who was very helpful helped me to push the van back off the rear of the hardstanding and site it on the grass but even though the pipe then reached the drains have been made much higher than the pitch to my knowledge water doesn't flow up hill I do not use a wastemaster as a single mother with 2 special need children I go on super pitched to keep the jobs to a minimum so this was a pain every time I emptied a sink you had to go outside to lift the pipe along the length to empty it.

The toilet block was clean and tidy but the disabled showers are within the male and female blocks difficult to impossible if your carer is of the opposite sex my one son found the shower floor too slippery to manage showering alone. The ladies contain 3 showers one of which is a disabled The water was extremely hot too hot for my 6 yr old. The soap dispensers were also too high for her to reach. You had to pay a £5 deposit for the toilet key and the children found to hard to turn also the knob on the inside is small so if you have problems with your grip it is difficult to turn and while there I found several children trapped in the ladies because they couldn't turn the door knob.

The main area is about a mile away we mostly walked it but you could ring for the minibus. We didn't use the entertainment because it was too loud for my boys but we did use the pools, the outdoor pool was shut until the last day there, the rapids were freezing due to boiler problems indoor pools clean but very busy and it was quite hard to find a locker with a key.

Tescos is 10 mins by car in Prestatyn and open to midnight much better than the overpriced spar The chippy is expensive with small portions the chippy off site was much better and closer. It is quite a walk to the beach the sand has lots of dune grass and pebbles the sea was a long way out but the kids played in the pools left behind. It is a good park but the touring does not seem important to them the carpark is full of statics for sale so although you can stay on park till 6pm there is only room for a couple of vans to park up. Security on the gate made me laugh I just said touring and was let in with no checks a bit pointless
