The staff were very good and worked hard but we had a problem with our cooker and were not able to use it for the holiday. This should have been fixed immediately

You would’ve got a 10 for helpfulness of staff if I hadn’t been told that there was nothing that could be done about the fact that your road humps stretch all the way across the road and in lots of cases there is nowhere to walk round them pushing a wheelchair or in a motor scooter. You could get someone to take the middle out of each one just wide enough to get a disabled scooter through therefore making the whole of the park accessible to disabled people. I found the fact that despite having the most expensive accommodation I had to go across the field and down a dirt track to get to the entertainment venue as I could not use the road way because there is no path. I thought in this day and age everybody was catered for, but obviously I was wrong. That is suicide you have the best entertainments time of any holiday camp or company that I have ever been to. James and Will are outstanding and you are very lucky to have them. Chloe and Julie are very talented singers and have certainly got the X factor. Restaurant staff and bar staff are efficient and very friendly. The camp is one of the cleanest I’ve ever been to and I would like to return if I don’t have to go across the field. It would be atrocious in the rain.

The place is lovely and the beaches were fab. The staff at the site let scoopers beach down, very unhelpful and generally very rude.
