We have just returned from a weekend break to Devon cliffs and are we pleased to be home!!
The accommodation was absolutely revolting. The first thing we noticed was a)The terrible smell of stale smoke (in a non smoking caravan) and b) The utter filth and grime. We opened all windows and hoped the smell would go. It did...only to be replaced by an incredible smell of sewage. (This never left and we slept in what smelt like a public urinal!)
The carpet was filthy and stained. You could feel… Read Full Review

Fantastic Holiday.....after reading some of these reviews i was a little concerned that i had made the right choice for my family but i have to say this was one of the best holidays ive had. I payed for a prestige caravan and it was worth every penny, it was very clean and tidy and looked quite new. The park itself was very good and clean especially the mash and barrel terrace which was nice to sit on of an evening. The funstars were exelent as were all the staff. I used the spa which was a… Read Full Review

Very disappointed with recent holiday at Devon Cliffs. Paid for Prestige caravan expecting clean, newer caravan. Breadcrumbs under toaster, ice lolly in freezer, living room carpet filthy and sticky, mould inside bathroom cabinet and up headboard in bedroom. Carpet was shampooed after complaining but little else done. To top it all when stripping beds when leaving discovered duvet was vomit stained! I will never book a Haven holiday again. Otherwise facilities good. Would recommend… Read Full Review

Myself, my partner and our 18 month old little boy went to devon cliffs on monday 12th July, and were supposed to stay until the 16th, but had to leave early. We paid extra to have a 'deluxe' caravan and believe me I was not expecting luxury, but was expecting the caravan to be clean. It was filthy! Twice I had to ask the cleaners to re-clean the van due to tobacco everywhere, after the second time I then found plasters under one of the beds covered in blood and a dog tag under the other one… Read Full Review

nice beach but very steep access. Swimming pool nice but no adult swimming area. 4 adults and 1 child squeezed into a tiny 2 bed caravan - not good but seemingly acceptable to staff. Friendly and helpful staff but a bit too laid back - allowing large queues to form whilst taking their time serving at the bar etc. Food was nice and not too badly priced.
The only issue really was that it is not so much family orientated but child orientated - not much for adults to do except for the… Read Full Review

Loved it! Myself, husband & 3 of our children stayed at Devon Cliffs for 4 nights & it was great! I was very worried when I read the reviews but obviously some people like a bit of a moan. Loads for the kids to do & the caravan was a budget one but very clean. We were 5 mins walk (with a toddler) to the beach & the entertainment complex. Beach is gorgeous & we luckily had one good day to make sandcastles :D Definitely going again next year. Don't be put off by some of these reviews!… Read Full Review

Haven - Devon Cliffs Holiday Park
Having booked a really good deal online for Half Term , I was slightly concerned that I'd made a mistake when I read some of the previous reviews. We'd never been to a 'holiday camp' before, but with a 6 & 8 year old boys we decided it was worth a shot, and also enticed my brother and his family along too.
Yes - the site is steep, the clue is in the name 'Devon Cliffs'!
Yes - the site is very large, but the facicilties are well managed.
Yes - the caravans are a… Read Full Review

when reading through the other reviews we were very worried about going,when we arrived the reviews couldn't have been more wrong. the camp is beautiful, it is very large and hilly. we have 3 children under the age of 5 and the entertainment was brilliant, there was even play areas for my 11 months old daughter to play on. the caravan was clean and we was very close to the complex and didnt hear any music or people coming out of the pubs late at night. the 2 showbars had different events every… Read Full Review

Returned from a £9.50 Sun holiday on 30th April 10. I have to admit I was really put off by some of the reviews on here but the holiday was one of the best I've ever had! I can only imagine that some people are put off by the size of the park (check in did take a while) but there is so much to do that you are never bored.
Sandy beach connects to the campsite itself and there is a cafe on the beachfront. The site is quite hilly so I can understand why some people would complain but I… Read Full Review

We just returned from devon cliffs on 23rd of April. Me, my husband and 4 year old twin boys stayed in a 3 bed superior caravan and paid an extra £20 for a 2010 model. People complaining about the older caravans then pay the extra money for a 2010 model. I did that for this reason. We were about a 5 minutes walk from the main complex and had a sea view. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The entertainment staff amused my children every night. The beach was lovely and secluded by cliffs… Read Full Review
