Unfortunately gone down hill since covid. The dolphin experience isn’t as interactive as it used to be, the bbq’s near the beach and picnic area were fenced off, and the staff had no idea why! So we were had to either use the ones on the other side of the park, or the very dirty ones in the communal area. We had planned to kayak, however they were closed for a whole month due to one member of staff being on annual leave! This was very disappointing as this was one of the reasons we chose the park to stay! To top it all off there seemed to be a large number of kids on a school trip, so the communal area was often too crowded and we would constantly hear the children running and screaming right outside our room.

Beach side villa, location was great. But the room was tired and tatty, curtin hanging off doors cupboards dirty. Shower was nice. Our biggest issue was villa 1 superior beach front, because we flew up, everyone thought they could park next to us with boats at 4am waking us up and the public using our drive as public access to the beach. If you fly up the villa should be roped off or cones stopping this, as the public non stop walking on and past our decking to the front off villa one.

We stayed in one of the older rooms, no toaster, swooping nesting crow got us on our 1st trip to the cafe, but alternate routes were safe. Lovely outlook and access straight onto the beach but no path from carpark to our room.

We enjoyed the restaurant, pool and rooms. Would like to see a bbq around the outside of the pool , so you could enjoy the view and also the grass are. What we didn't enjoy was the huge amount of crows and gulls which would pinch food when your back was turned.
