We stayed here for 10 days and the whole 10 days was packed with fun filled activities. The camp itself was really good. The entertainment had a variety of things on and that always made us laugh. A huge thank you to the arcade worker Luke who made sure that everything was always up to the correct standard and he...

I've just returned from a Sun Holiday to Golden Sands. I upgraded my booking before arriving and was pleasantly surprised, the caravan was fairly new, spotlessly clean, spacious and in very good condition. I reported a couple of minor things to reception and they were rectified within an hour. The children's entertainment was very good in the clubhouse and all...

Just came home after a week here. Stayed in a 10 berth gold plus caravan (4 bedroom) that we paid under £500 for. There was 5 adults and 2 children. Was a good size and not too crowded. This was our second time here (went July 2016 the first time). Both trips we were able to check in half hour-40mins...

Where to begin. Avoid avoid avoid. Save yourself. This place is the lowest of the low in the caravan site world. Guests treated a major inconvenience. Rude receptionist Rochelle needs retraining. Spoke to her on site and on the phone before arrival and during our stay and all I can say is wow!! I've never in my life met someone...

Wow..... as a family of 4 and a dog, we are frequent visitors to holiday parks and usually have a great time. We do not use too much on the entertainment etc as we use the sites as a base, so normally nothing to complain about. This site however.... Upon arrival, our 4pm check in was delayed significantly. We finally...

We booked our break through Sun Holidays to stay at this park. When we arrived it was really busy. We queued at reception as we werent sure what time we could check in and were told 4pm (was about 3.15pm) but could use the pool whilst we waited. So the kids (12 and 10 years) went in the pool which...

Thank you for your feedback following your recent stay with us, I can only apologise that Golden Sands accommodation and park did not meet your expectations, I am pleased that Brenda was able to move you to our other Park Dawlish Sands and that this park was more suitable for you.

After pathetically being told we couldn't check in for another 10 minutes. We finally checked in to find someone's old dirty linen from previous was dumped out the front on the caravan. We decided to pay extra to have the beds made for when we got into the caravan as we have come a long way and my partner might...

Thank you for your feedback, I can only apologise for your disappointment regarding the allocated accommodation. I am sure had you reported the issues to Reception that they would have been able to resolve the problems to your complete satisfaction. Once again I am sorry to read you did not enjoy your stay as much as we would have hoped.

Been coming to golden sands for 7 years now, many times more than once a year and each year it gets better. The camp is in a very ideal area with a supermarket close by and many local small shops near by, it is positioned well between two beaches. The night time entertainment is amazing you are made to feel...

We booked a last minute break for Easter hoping for more than we got. We weren't able to check in until 4pm and weren't met with the friendliest of welcomes when we tried half hour earlier. The apartment was dreadful (see pictures) and we contemplated coming home but with two young children we decided that the beds were at least...
