We stayed in center parcs for Christmas, the staff were amazing, so accommodating. The lodge was clean and warm. Winter wonderland was amazing, the kids loved it. The kids enjoyed the adventure golf and archery. Social distancing guidelines were adhered to in all restaurants and shops that we visited. Planning our next trip. Fabulous 😊

Can't thank Centerparcs enough for a wonderful 4 night away at Christmas. What an amazing time we had 🎄🎅🤶☃️🎁🏡 we did lazer tag and tree trekking- both really well run! And safely done. Meals out delicious and Santa claus was brilliant too , especially the elves!! We where there last September too , we did miss the pool this time but was still a very enjoyable holiday away , and just was so magical 💫

We had a fantastic 2 night break just before Christmas. Despite indoor activities being closed due to current restrictions, it did not detract from the wonderful Christmas atmosphere and overall experience. The staff were all so pleasant and friendly and did their best to make everyone feel festive. We had been to center parcs in England many years ago and had loved it then, Longford did not disappoint and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely return when restrictions lift.

(Festive break pool closed due to covid) Accomadation is lovely. Clean and very practical. Disappointed that the Aerial Adventure was closed when we were there. Very little else activity for 13 + age category. All activities are for younger kids. My two girls 8 + 13 did the tree tracking, it took longer to check them in and complete the medical questionaires than the time it took to complete the activity. So at €30 each it is extortinate. Festive trail was reasonablely priced but would benefit if it had more difficult levels. It took my kids 30mins to complete. Kids loved cycling around. Festive lights around the park was lovely. Got a take away from the Indian. It was just ok. No option to order chips with it and as I had to order on line I couldn't even ask if they could be added. I didn't like that everything had to be pre booked online. Activities and food. I look forward to going back when the pool is open. I will bring more food for the lodge and will avoid booking any extra activities.

We knew what was available before we arrived for our break on December 21st and had gotten a refund so we were not expecting too much but it was our only break after a long year What we got was just a fantastic Christmas experience from both the friendly staff and brilliant Christmas wonderland We had teenagers and a toddler but even us adults were delighted we went ahead with our break You could give out about the lack of pool and indoor activities but to be honest we are already planning a return trip once the facility is open again None of the staff were phoning it in even though further restrictions were announced when we were there and you can tell this place means a lot to them Holidays are what you make of them but the staff more than did enough to make ours memorable
