Been coming to Southport and Prestatyn pontins for ten years now so thought I would add a review
I don’t come here for my main family holiday I come with my kids and my friend and her children, we book through the sun holidays and on average pay about £120 for 4 nights
The way I look at it is like this -
No it’s not perfect, and a lot could do with replacing and updating but for £30 approx each day for myself and 4 kids I would find it hard to get a day out in the school holidays for that so I see it like we are having a few days out, we take our own food, we may have a meal out in Southport so all in all it’s a budget week and beats staying at home where I can’t get the kids off the computer!
I can’t say a bad word about any of the staff, we had a room that had a problem with the door and was moved straight away, staff are friendly, helpful and the manager is very friendly, they must take some abuse off people staying there but still try and smile !
shop is open till 8pm and stocks quite a lot of essential stuff at not too bad a price if you have forgot something
We booked an online shop this time (Asda) as I get dropped off so was easier to do this,
I met the driver at the gate and showed them to my chalet they drove round and dropped the food off
We had chips from the food place next door to the shop they were nice and large portions
swimming pool was absolutely fine very clean no complaints
Has everything you need ( could of done with a floor brush there was a small dustpan and brush though )
We had a new tin opener and chopping board, new mattresses on the beds as well
The heaters were good and Kept the room very warm ( we had free electric as we booked with the sun but I would say expect to pay £7 a day in electric )
(£4 for a single cart £5 for a double)
We had a go on the go carts which where great, we had children age 9 through to 19 so this was something for them all and the 2 guys who ran it were very helpful and cheery
(£2 for 30 min)
Our two 9 year olds liked this although
some of them were not working it kept them entertained for half an hour
(£2 for ten minutes)
Again good for the younger girls, just keep your kids shoes next to you as I’d bought my daughter new trainers the week before and someone had took them but left their shoes ( they were the same but different size!) easily done but best to keep them with you
We didn’t have a go but it’s free and looked good
(£3 for a single £5 for a 4 seater 30 min)
These are always great fun we hire these out every time
The gaming zone was closed which I’m not bothered about as it’s nice to get the kids off computers!
There could be more for older kids but otherwise a good variety of stuff to do at not too expensive
Was good in the evening as it always is with the blue coats, they are great and give the kids a really good time
I noticed quite a lot of improvements from a year ago one being that the arcade
machines were working better, outdoor areas had been painted, just looked a bit cleaner and fresher than in previous years
In the years we’ve been going we have always had a clean room and no complaints, I think people expect way too much for the little amount it costs to stay here.
