    Anyone else just back from the £10 Pontins holidays???

    We're just back from Pontins Camber Sands after finding the £10 deal posted last month.
    Was really worried it was going to be bad after the awful reviews read on here but was pleasantly surprised! Yes it's dated but the room was ok and the kids loved the evening entertainment,fantastic beach and the wonderful weather was a lovely surprise too.
    As long as you don't go expecting 5star you'll be fine and if a similar deal came up I'd be first in the queue to book

    nice one, always wondered about the cheap offers. think i might try and go for it next time, thanks.

    Yep was at Southport, and for some reason I was given a classic apartment just for me so had 2 large sofas, proper carpet etc.

    Was a good time, only "moan" is the tv didnt have a scart socket so I couldnt use freeview box I brought.

    There was a few issues as the bedroom window was jammed, and the bathroom and living room windows had snapped handles but 30 minutes after reporting a handyman came round and put brand new ones in!

    Would go back again myself.

    we had a classic one too not a budget as I thought we'd get. Our tv aerial was missing but like you say by the time we got back it had been done. Thought the staff were excellent, especially the kids ones. Reckon my 2yr old could have kept going at night longer than me though!

    Sounds like its improved a lot since I last went to pontins. My son was 3 months old (7yrs ago) and the room was grotty. Filthy surfaces and cupboards and the cot was disgusting. I vowed never to go back.

    People still have those sort of complaints though I have never personally come across them in the 4 times I have been there in the last 2 years, sure the budget ones look a bit run down but I have never come across a dirty one, at least ones I have stayed in many guest chalets seem to have dishes piled high and dont bother cleaning up after themselves.

    But I think its just many people have a bit of high standards for what they expect, have seen many people on here talk about how they left after one night as the floor was sticky.

    I do know now all the cleaning staff are foreign, Polish I think.

    +1 the Camber Sands one is soo dated and run down it should be demolished.

    Sorry but for the cheap deals you can't beat it, yes it needs lots of work but ours was clean and fine for using as a base. My husband did point out there was lots they needed to do but the way some people are talking you'd put lots of people off when if they can't afford a holiday then one of these deals would be perfect as there is swimming, daytime and night time entertainment laid on fror free if you want it. We are lucky that we could have this as a extra towards our main holiday later in year but if I was struggling for cash I'd be very happy to find a deal like this if it meant we could get away. If you have kids they'd love it and there was one of the best beaches I'd been to just across road. If you've got plenty of spare cash then don't bother and go somewhere you won't be complaining all the time
