The caravan was brilliant clean & tidy. The entertainment was good for our 3 small kids aged 4-6-9 even tho in 7 days our 3 esp our daughter was up the front eager to be noticed every night they chose the same kids over n over equalling on very upset 4 yr old !! , the 9 yr old dealt with it as his had no other opinion & in our 7 days stay the entertainment was same every night apart from one evening when ur management thought it would be a good idea to put on a kids film at 8:30pm meaning finish time would be 10:30 at night. our 2 teens 13-16 where bored, over the yrs we have visited many caravan sites your entertainment was for teens & adults appalling (doesn't exsist) we love linked in bingo but sadly u changed the time to a time when it should be more kids time infact due to exploring the island we wasn't even back to go to club house at 5:30 !
Swimming was a nitemare as I have a son with myotonic dystrophy & booking in a day before is not sometime we can do due to his condition so in 7 days we went once ! The lovely hot day at 1pm we walked down to swimming not realising we needed to book couldn't get in cos u was using that time to do private session, my opinion is this isn't good enough I paid nearly £1,000 for our week & u never had enough staff to open both inside & outside pools together even tho it's August n school holidays so u must realise the majority in ur site is families with kids away for a holiday !!
I will not be recommending this site due to the swimming & Lack of entertainment I was disappointed that ur website never stated we had to book swimming & that entertainment was purely for very small kids !!
Disappointing all round really !

Overall a very nice holiday. My 3 yr old daughter had so much fun. Compared to other holiday parks we 've been to..the entertainment for kids is excellent! The food is freshly cooked and well priced. The caravan is very clean and bed are made and all kitchen utensils are provided. The park is clean. It should have been perfect if they improve on the play area for kids. But definitely very happy with our stay.

My family and I had a lovely break at coopers beach. Staff overall were helpful, although receptionist said she would phone when caravan was ready and never did. Entertainment was ok, maybe a little dated at times . Swimming pool was too busy for adults in my family to find enjoyable but the children didn't seem to notice. Caravan was clean and of a high standard.
I would stay here again.
