Center Parcs De Huttenheugte
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Dalen
Reviewed 10 April 2016 via mobile

My family have stayed at several Center Parcs in England and across the netherlands. We have stayed at De Huttenheuge previously, this time our cottage was in terribly poor condition and had clearly not been updated since we last visited (ten years ago). The ceiling in the 'cave' bedroom was incomplete, the bathroom was vile and smelt of damp and the door which led to the outside seated area leaked when it rained one evening. The aquamundo had not been updated either but was in better condition than the cottages. The dome WiFi signal was good and the staff were friendly. I would highly recommend Centre Parcs in the Netherlands but not this park, Port Zeeland is considerably nicer.

Stayed: April 2016, travelled with family

This is our second visit to Dutch Centerparcs having visited De Kemperveenen last year so it had a lot to live up to. Didn't find the beds soft as in other reviews, if anything a little firm. We stayed in a premier lodge which was the right balance of cost vs comfort. Picked a lovely spot cottage 843 central and near all the amenities but up a little path so not overlooked or walked past giving privacy. Had all the usual centerparcs activities except for badminton. Even had an observatory although only worthwhile for beginners / those who have limited access to a telescope. Lovely setting nice and peaceful. On the odd occasion, the drains in the bathroom were a bit smelly but other than that no issues. Son hurt his hand on the first day falling off his bike and the staff were helpful in directing us to a hospital and when my phone wouldn't dial internationally, ringing ahead to book him in on our behalf. Most staff had good english even though there weren't many english people there so the kids had fun on all the activities. Would definitely go again. Ate once on-site at the pancake house and the price was extortionate. Supermarket a little more expensive than offsite but with Ceoverden just down the road with a Jumbo supermarket, Aldi and Lidl there was no need to but anything but the morning fresh bread on site

Room Tip: 843 has views of the lake but quiet and peaceful cabin

First when I walked into the room was really dark so switched all the lights in the room. However when I stand at closet mirror still could not find the switch so I look into the celling and found there was no recessed downlight on the celling and can see through the celling hole. Head board did not sealed so it kept falling down and made loud noise so we decided to remove to the side.Eventhough we stayed for two nights however housekeeing still did not fix the problem.

This was the first time in a Center Parcs for me. Since we have younger children usually we visit (quite regularly) a park from another provider (Landal) for a midweek or weekend. If the name Center Parcs is discussed it is often mentioned together with the excellent quality "aqua mundo" and the "market dome" in most parks. I must say I was quite impressed by the pool. Maybe the best I've been to so far. This is a huge park and so is the Aqua Mundo. Slides, wild water area, everything you need!

The bungalow itself is fairly basic and perhaps in need of modernization but does provide the standard. Staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Most restaurants and supermarket are outrageously expensive (supermarket prices can easily charge you more than 50% of the "normal" prices)
Not offering a free WiFi network in the bungalow is really outdated. Luckily I had my KPN hotspot log- on hand so free Internet was still available. The Emmen Zoo is real cool and you can easily spend a few hours over there!

All in all a good weekend. I still find the park too expensive and the only reason I 'd would book another stay at Center Parcs is the pool.

Room Tip: Bungalow 102 is not far from the market dome and the front desk and still offers plenty of privacy.

We used this CP as a base for a long weekend. Cottage was clean but desperately needs updating. Beds were very soft and need new mattresses! Staff were all very helpful, especially the bar waiter Barry. The pool area is good but small and limited compared to others we have been too (5 others) even our water junkie got a bit bored. Disappointing that the shows, crazy bingo were in action stations and not the market dome, can see why as a lot more room, but the games machine, football on the tv, kids play area all still open too! Shame there was not the option to have an evening drink in the market garden as it looks lovely all lit up, we sat outside in the end as it was a nice evening. Normally see lots of management walking around checking everything is as it should be, but didn't see a single member of management! The shop seemed to close very early and not the best stocked shop at a CP. Lovely pastries in the bakery. All in all a good base, clean park but not sure it was worth a 4 hour drive from the port when other parcs offer better.
