I've just got back from my second holiday at Whitecliff Bay and wanted to add my review as I was warned by a family member that there were loads of negative reviews on here.
Last year we stayed in a value chalet on a Sun weekend break and I would agree that the accomodation could have been improved. If you are just looking for a base and aren't too fussy then it's fine, and the space available in the chalets is great if, like us, you've got young children. The interior is dated and the carpets weren't in a great state but my only real complaint was that there were only three teaspoons!
This year we went with family and stayed in one of the 8-berth comfort caravans - it was great inside and I would totally recommend it. I've stayed in many caravans in recent years and this was without doubt the most luxurious and well equipped.
The only negative things I found about the park on this occasion are that the Nab bar dinner menu seems to be reduced from what I remember last year and not all of the advertised meals were available.
Also, the entertainment in the Culver Club is a bit lacking. We didn't make it in there last year due to having a baby with us - we only went there once this year and weren't impressed. They advertise bingo as being every night between 7 and 8 so we went down there at 8 only to find they were running behind and we had to keep a 2 and 3 year old quiet while they finished. I'd pefer to see some child-friendly entertainment in the early evening as anything later is useless if your kids are young.
The soft play area has a height limit that would probably make it only for under fives but it's perfectly good for toddlers and young children and we had it all to ourselves when we went there.
I've stayed in another park on the Isle of Wight but will continue to return to Whitecliff Bay as their location is wonderful. The beach is perfect and there's hardly anyone on it even in good weather.
