      Seeing the kids smile and have fun - my 10 year old boy loved the go-carts!!!!

      Very Poor accomodation. Some very rough guests!!!!!

    • Family with children

      The best thing about our stay (apart from the weather!) was the helpfulness of the staff. We had two disabled guests in our party and needed taxi details etc - the gentleman who helped us sorted for us to have an earlier breakfast as we had to be at the air show by 9am and we had a later breakfast sitting. he went to the trouble to make sure the 10 of us were seated together, telling us he was a bit worried when we were a few minutes late and hoped we were all ok! He even found out a taxi number and rang it on his own phone for us! nothing was too much trouble this time around and the staff are so obviously understaffed and overworked but I didn't hear anyone complain like the last time we came here. Even the bar staff were funny and friendly and nothing was too much trouble - when I couldn't find a tray to carry our drinks the lad who served me took the trouble to find one and bring it to me, even offering to carry them over for me. Since being taken over, the rooms have had new flooring and curtains from what we could see, and a lick of paint.The half board option was good for us - its not exactly 3 star food but it is edible and hot and the help yourself breakfasts were hot and excellent choice. Pontins managers - you should appreciate your serving/reception staff because they are certainly your best asset!

      The accommodation is still pontins worse feature! the floor may have been swept but certainly hadnt been mopped - our feet were literally black from walking on it barefooted within a few minutes.The shower was only tepid - had to boil kettle to wash disabled guests hair as too cold and kept turning itself off due to timer button! Our bedding was damp when we checked in - it had been raining that morning and we were told the linen got wet outside - we were told we would be brought some more and pillows (as they were flat as pancakes!) but they didnt materialise so we gave up asking!! The glasses/crockery were far from clean with old tea stains - we used our picnic hamper glasses as they were cleaner! the pull out bed was absolutely covered in dust on the legs - no good for the asthmatics amongst us! and no remote in classic apartments - difficult when diasbled to keep getting up to turn the tv over, up or off! and of course, the activities on site (other than the pool) have to be paid for so at £5 a head, were omitted by our party much to the kids disgust! We stayed here a few years ago and it was so much more dire then than now (if thats possible with holes in the ceiling and mouldy curtains and scum marks in the bath!!) If you want a very basic place to park your head for the night with a meal included (and dont worry about much else!) then it is ok for that and I would recommend it purely from the point of view of the excellent staff trying to make the best of a bad job, and its reasonable accessible location to southport town centre. It is the equivalent of a hostel to some extent!

      Having read some reviews I was not looking forward to our stay but when we got there it was good yeah the rooms werent the best but it was clean the staff were lovley only complaint is they did a kids christmas show at the begining of July over all we had a great weekend

    • Family with children

      There's plenty of activities for the kids.

      The fact that they keep getting you to sit in different places going by the colour of napkins for some reason.

      Everything, great location, friendly staff, good prices, excellent clean chalet..

      Just one thing, had to wait 20mins to check in, only one member of staff on.

    • Older travelers

      The entertainment for children and the hearty buffet breakfast.

      The only disappointment was the Sunday dinner. The usual staff were not in attendance and it was quite noticeable by their absence. The buffet dishes were empty, the soup was congealed to the pot and the young girl who was serving behind the counter made no attempt to replenish the dishes whilst we were there. We went home and cooked a meal in our chalet.

    • Family with children

      Plenty entertainment for the kids

      The accomodation was a bit run down, could do with a freshin up.

    • Family with children
      3.8

      The holiday was an unmitigated disaster because of the lack of communication between yourselves and Pontins. I have written a letter of complaint to Pontins and therefore cannot elaborate any further.

      The biggest problem I had was the fact we were put in budget accomodation when it clearly stated thwt we should have been in Classic.

    • Family with children
      3.2

      The holiday park is in a good location - just a 5 minute walk from a lovely quiet sandy beach and a short drive from the main attractions of Southport centre.

      The rooms were beyond filthy. We were the only chalet in our block who weren't part of a sporting competition and were targeted at night by having balls and stones thrown at the window and people knocking at our door - very scary so, needless to say, we didn't stay another night. The pool and soft play areas advertised were closed, and we had no microwave as also advertised. Our smoke alarm was faulty and not repaired despite being reported twice.

      The kids had a good time as they do not understand what poor service is.

      Lack of service.

    • Family with children
      5.0

      Fair for families, to many groups of lads/ girls getting drunk at night, very noisey didnt sleep till 4am

    • Couple

      The price with Booked.net was excellent so good value for a nights stay.

      Room was grubby and were glad to only stay one night. From the website we expected more facilities and entertainment.
