We have just returned from a four night Sun holiday break at Parkdean Torquay. We read all the reviews before we went and had some apprehension but were pleasantly surprised. We were given our caravan early and had a three bed caravan for the three of us which was very large and spacious. It was impecibly clean although maybe a little tired. There were some pealing wall paper and stains on the carpets but this did not hinder our stay. I took my own duvet and pillows as I do not like to sleep on others thought ones provided looked adequate. Kitchen was well equipped he only thing we used from home were some scissors. Plenty of cooking equipment/knives etc. Beds were lovely and comfy, by 9pm i couldn't wait to go to bed! We were in the vixen plot which was right at the bottom of the park. Although it is hilly we did not find this a problem nor did our four year old. The swimming pool is great. Spacious changing areas, free lockers (no coins required) there was a large pool, jacuzzi bath and small children's pool and a flume. All of which were clean. Pool was a nice warm temperature. There was an under fives ball pit room which looked clean but we did not go in. The arcade was as you would expect. Our four year old liked the kids club however we aren't 'holiday club' type of people! We just stayed for an hour each night with our daughter and left, we did not buy drinks so cannot comment on prices. Crazy golf is in need of particular TLC as it just looks abandoned!! We did not eat at the site so cannot comment although prices we did see looked expensive. Shop was as expensive as you expect at these sort of places with a rough 10% mark up. Park was really good for the kids. Cannot comment on staff as we hardly saw any of them! Park is not one to visit without a car. Although I feel for a short break the camp would be adequate but hard to get to!
