Each to their own, apparently its been done up, but im not going to listen to negative comments until i go and see for myself. If it is a dump then so be it, but its a base for a family holiday where we can visit gorgeous parts of Wales. AND Timmy Mallett will be there, what more do i need to say!!

my sister had to cut her stay short after being in her room for no more than 1 hour.
The manager on site even agreed that the room was not fit for a child under the age of 2 to live in. There was damp, it was filthy and there was mould all over the bathroom and windows
She then had to send a letter to the head office threatening legal action before they would refund any money.
Stay away from these god forsaken hell holes. How they haven't gone under sooner I do not know

The night time area's i.e where the acts are are quite nice. The accomodation is really bad, we got locked in our room because the lock on the front door broke, good job there wasnt a fire. An 'engineer' came and wiggled the handle and opened the door, and that was that, didnt change it and it probably did the same again.

Read it and weep , doesn't matter which one you go to , they are all of a similar standard ,featured multiple times on watchdog , slaughtered on every consumer website known to humanity , filthy mattresses , staff who couldn't care less , gangs of teenagers roaming the entertainment areas and drunken adults in the bars. An absolute health hazard , MANY MANY people book in for three nights , take one look at the facilities and leave , seriously , go to haven.

Sadly I agree with other posters here, pontoons is well past it's sell by date.
We went last year and stayed approx 6 hrs, the kids fell asleep and we drove them home. They were so upset as we're we , but the place was so filthy we just couldn't stay there.

We always go to Haven, went in may and will be going again in October, we just wanted a cheap base for a few nights in August, wish i hadnt bothered now

I live in Prestatyn and this Pontins has NOT been refurbished. My daughters friend works there and she has confirmed this. I really hope you get a nice chalet and are not disappointed, but there are not many of them.

On the plus side the pool is fantastic and the outdoor activities are good if you get the nice weather. Also it is a fantastic base for exploring Snowdonia and North Wales.

Prestatyn also has a new retail park so you can pop there for your bit of shopping (Tesco, M&S etc)

Can anyone recommend any nice cheap UK holidays (similar type of holiday to pontins, but clean accommodation, friendly staff etc...)?

Cheers

Far better off taking up the Daily Mail holidays offer, recently published here.

Buy a decent tent and go camping. Some sites are peaceful but others have playgrounds/bingo/burger bars/pub/"entertainment" if that's what floats your boat.

Dont think Id leave them alone with anyone from my childhood, theyre going down like flies!!!!

went pontins southport great location spent a day in the sands dunes it was great ,ok theres people you wouldnt mix with but its 3 days and cheap

we went to brean sands last month, I also read all the negative comments and was dreading it, when we got there our room was beyond basic but it was clean. This would have been tragic if it wasnt for the fact that everything else made up for it. The entertainment for my two year old was great, lots of parks and indoor activities for him to do aswell and he had a brilliant time. I will admit we didnt eat there as the food looked rank but I wouldnt say we had a holiday from hell, in fact we'd probably go back! Just go there knowing your not visiting the ritz and you'll be fine

:-) thats what we intend to do. Husband said were going on a cheap caravan holiday not a 5* hotel break!

Ive emailed Pontins about all the bad reviews and asked what they make of them and did they intend to improve the quality of cleanliness!!!!!!!!! Dont expect a reply but thought i would try!

We will have a fab time no matter what the accommodation is like. We are away as a family and in beautiful Wales. We dont need much else!

Hi,feel the need to give you my opinion on the place as yes its bad but for somewhere to sleep it will do,if you have children they will absolutely love it! Its a great base to visit many other parts of wales. The rooms are pretty bad BUT most have been made better ie vinyl flooring throughout so you can clean easier than when they had the FILTHY carpets. Still they aren't great but you don't plan on spending time in the chalet or at least we didn't. Swimming pool is massive and has a smaller pool for little ones,great for all the family,there is a big park area,skateboard park for stunt scooter and skateboards (take your own) you can hire the pedal cars to drive around the parl,again great fun for the kiddies and yourselves. The entertainment in the clubs are great for all ages and the staff do a good job with the kids.

It is filthy and it does attract the wrong sort of people BUT the times I have been there has never been any trouble or anything,and for £99 for the weekend you wouldn't get a family room for 1 night for that! Im sure the children will enjoy themselves and it is a great base to explore other areas. Id be surprised if you didn't enjoy yourselves based on the entertainment alone. It is what it is,its not the cleanest of places,you get what you pay for and I certainly refuse to pay Butlins prices so don't expect to be staying anything like that! I hope this helps you x

It really does help, thank you so much. The children will love the entertainment and everything there is to do on site, so if theyre happy then we are happy. We usually go to west wales so we plan on exploring north wales. We will hardly be in the room but we will take a few cleaning items for when we are in there.

Yep, tomorrow. I emailed the manager at Prestatyn Pontins and said i was worried about all the negative comments. He took my check in date and said he would ensure my chalet was clean. Surely all chalets should be clean!!! We will see what its like. I will take some cleaning stuff, but to be honest its a base for us to go to Anglesey, Llandudno, Betws y coed, Bangor etc etc
