Mayby poor accommodation but as an all round package with entertainment this is a good offer

Disgusting awful place.

Went there 2 years ago. Complained about the state of the place.

They sent a letter saying they have just bought it and are redecorating.

Last week on watchdog. Someone had same problem. They replied again. We have just bought it and are doing it up.

Shambles.

Staff weren't that great either.

We went last year to brean sands, it was disgusting!!!! Only stayed 2 days had to come home it was that bad went to complain at reception they just didn't care, would never ever go to any pontins hols again even if they were free!!
Haven are the best have never had any bad experiences with them x

Went to Southport last year for 2 nights, even though it was free i wouldn't go again. Entertainment on a Saturday night consisted of xmas music for 2 hours followed by some other rubbish, it was August oO. The place looks like a cross between a prison camp and chav town.

Pontins Brean Sands should be shut down, would never stay there again

I went to a music/pissup weekend in butlins skeggy the other week which was fine for what it was. Are these places any worse than that?

This what they did to blackpool Pontins. The way forward.

We just got back from Haven. upgraded too, and think that was pretty poor, small caravan although modern and entertainment a bit rubbish, small indoor pool too. So that makes me wonder what pontins are like lol oO

I agree!

Save your money... Don't bother. Even at this price, you WILL be disappointed

Whether you pay something or nothing, if you go to stalag Prestatin, you won't be impressed! We upgraded to their top accommodation for £200 and got plenty of fags outside the door, plastic bed covers and 2 towels for four people! Not to mention crap food and some of the entertainment onsite.
Even the locals slagged it off!! Nice people around the area, just don't go there!

I accidentally voted this hot.

I feel dirty!

All true last year stayed at southport and was bad left 2 days early awful , can't forget the fish finger beds

The locals in Prestatyn and Rhyl are abominable ! Trust me, I used to be a snooker player and was forced to go there to qualify for over 10 years. I swear of it wasn't for that place is have made it. What a depressing place. Saying that had some great laughs there but it was by no means because of pontins! Find memories of captain croc lol

Excuse the predictive iPhone text

DO NOT GO TO BREAN SANDS. Cannot speak of the others but if this is Pontins standard then they need shutting down. Stayed at a lovely caravan park in Brean and decided to pop in their for a drink. Well its the dirtiest looking place I've ever seen. Everyone looks so god damn miserable. Toilets were disgusting. There was a pint glass with beer spilt on the floor and the staff just walked round it. Is also been on watchdog. Read the reviews on TripAdvisor too.

Yes !

I won a 3 night stay at the Southport Pontins in a local paper. I now wish I had never entered it! What a horrible,disgusting and dirty place. Stay well away.

But 40 is an offer normally 150 or 250.

They haven't made it worse because you only paid 40 quid. It's always like that.

And to answer your question I don't expect to find stained carpets. Stained carpets. Mouldy bathrooms. And find 2 forks and 12 knives in a drawer.

I went last year & it's still the same as when we went 12 year ago, them double sofa beds are horride, not sure where the cleaners actually clean, the children's pool is disgusting too, never seen anything like it! This was the Southport one, shame really

We went to the southport 2 years ago, the weather was amazing so we spent all of our time at the beach, we didn't use any of the 'facilities' the entertainment looked awful, parents heavy drinking while their kids mess about unsupervised seems to be an occurring theme. We paid about £60 (saw the deal on here) for a week, the accommodation was 'sticky', we brought sleeping bags with us, good job because the bedding is eurgh. When we were there they were actually doing it up but we were in one of the old ones, so maybe its improved?
I think £40 to stay at the seaside for a weekend is a good deal though, just use it as somewhere to sleep and its fine.

It's ultra cheap, cos its ultra awful. Went last summer, filthy, disgusting, and we stopped in the best accommodation. Dread to think what the rest was like!

I would rather stay at home thank you. Why would anyone vote this hot?

Not sure which Haven you went to but I've been to several now and rate them highly maybe worth trying a different park can make all the difference! They have also changed their entertainment completely this year I have to agree it was a bit rubbish not a patch on what it was last year and myself along with various other friends who've visited recently have voiced our opinions about the changes and as its a new concept I'll be returning next year in the hope they have taken on board the feedback of their new concept and tweaked it into better shape

Couldn't pay me to go back to a Pontins - went to the one in hemsby a few years ago (its now shut down and I can't imagine why..) we upgraded our chalet/apartment whatever you want to call it, to the "top" one....I DREAD to think what the lower class ones were like if we had the "best" mouldy carpets, mould growing everywhere in the bathroom, sofa bed had fag butts under it and mouldy food, looked like a prison camp - still does...and from tripadvisor I wouldn't say any of the other sites are any better to what this was.

have to agree with you i dnt rate haven either.

We go here several times a year and its great. yes it aint The Ritz, but go with an open mind and join in all the fun. Do you remove your shoes and wash your hands as soon as you enter your home? If not, have you any idea how many germs, viruses and what have you you are spreading all over your home?????????? personally, I DO remove my shoes and wash my hands before touching anything, and I stay in a Pontins chalet 10 times a year! haven is way overpriced, hardly anything to sdo and everything bar swimming (in a tiny shallow pool) is chargeable)

Went to camber sands last year. Very basic but the kids enjoyed themselves. Theres plenty for them to do and a beautiful beach accross the road. Your kidding yourself on if you think your going to stay in luxury for 40 quid. We used it as a base. You can travel to london in an hour and a half. Where would 40 quid get you there. Also, its not pontims that leave litter or fag ends or stay up all night shouting/drinking.
Staff were friendly and room was clean ish. Bargin for 40 quid
