I am the customer that doesnt normally write reviews, good or bad. The customer who has a bad experience but doesnt complain, I just walk away quitely and never repeat the experience.
Until now....I read the reviews on this site before I left to go on our trip to Perransands and the bad reviews really stressed me out! I even had a back up plan for me, my wife and two young children to move out from our caravan straight into a local hotel if the accomodation was in anyway poor.
We paid an upgrade to get a new 2011 caravan (this is a must at only £5 extra per night!)We were given a 2007 caravan with no water facilities that was a smaller caravan than we had booked. You can check how old the caravan is by checking the date on the main gas appliance/boiler (this tells you when the gas was commissioned.)
I went straight to reception. No drama. Explained I wanted a new caravan. We were given a free upgrade to a brannd new caravan that was immaculate and only commissioned two weeks earlier. The staff were very professional.
All staff members we came across were very friendly. The site was spotless. But why would you stay on the site as Perran Porth is fantastic, the beach is one of the best I have ever been to. You will read about the long walk back from the beach on the site, but why bother as you can drive to the same beach in Perran porth in less that 5 minutes.
There is a Morrisons only 7 miles drive from the site. And some wonderful swimming pools with large flumes and great life gaurds at some local holiday parks that you can take a quick drive to that are very well priced (just check on the internet before you go).
I hope you found this useful, with a bit of basic planning you will have a great holiday!
