“We have stayed on this site over the past few years...”

Written on: 17/08/2014 by XzavierO'Connell294 (1 review written)

We have stayed on this site over the past few years and have never experienced anything other than a lovely stay. The site is well maintained, the people who rent their van to us are lovely and can't do enough to ensure your stay is comfortable. The site is close to padstow and within a couple of miles, less in some circumstances there are a number of fantastic beaches. The site is a good option for families but if there is one area that could be improved it would be the provision of more… Read Full Review

“Don't stay here if you have a family and want any sleep!”

Written on: 10/06/2014

We stayed here during May 2014. First night kept up until 3am by an idiot in a close caravan having a party and playing loud music. We didn't dare go to speak to the individual as we could hear them telling others complaining to f off! Day two same again until the early hours. Day three overheard said person bragging about growing cannabis in his caravan! We went to speak to the reception on a number of occasions but it was always closed. Spoke to the lady in the cafe next door who… Read Full Review

We are sorry for your negative feedback; could we please ask which caravan you where staying in, as we would like to investigate this matter further. As you may, or may not know, our site is made up of private caravan owners, some of whom rent out to holidaymakers. It would help us greatly if you could identify which caravan you rented.

Regards

thank you for your review. We would like to let you know that over the last couple of years we have been listening to feedback, and over the winter just gone have carried out a major refurbishment on the bar/ clubhouse and converted it to a Cafe Bistro/ Bar.

Please see Facebook for info.

Also we are in the process of implementing a development timeline so please keep an eye out for information

“lovely site”

Written on: 21/08/2013 by shiba0000000 (1 review written)

I stayed for a week here, someone was advertising their static and prices where cheap so went for it with the family. Can honestly say it was lovely. It is quiet, clean, small clubhouse, crazy golf, shop fine and chip shop good. I would love to go back and will do at some point as beaches nearby where amazing. Lots to choose from and we also had nice day at padstow which is local to. Its not buzzing with bright lights and amusements, although there are a few in a room but we didn't bother… Read Full Review

“Absoulutely disgusting”

Written on: 15/04/2013 by Kelbadhams (1 review written)

Hired the gate house, the carpets were filthy, mattress stained, cold, damp, mouldy, cracks filled with tissue, radiators falling off of the walls and the smell was that awful we left the following morning only as we could not find somewhere the same night. We were appalled with what we had given to us, to rent such a horrid place was just disgusting. Most definetley would not recommend to anyone. Don't waste your time and hard earn money on such filth!… Read Full Review

“GREAT SITE,VISIT EVERY YEAR.”

Written on: 18/03/2013 by janey1962 (1 review written)

I was shocked to read the not so good reviews,we have been visiting this caravan park for years,and have never had a bad van,we usually pay to get a silver or gold van and it is still great value for money,it is near to great beaches and padstow,and half the price of some nearby parks,i have stayed at others but maribou gets my vote.The family are great and always helpful.Yes i like luxury and with the gold vans you get it as far as caravans go,so why pay over 1000 pounds for the same van on a… Read Full Review

“Avoid”

Written on: 26/11/2012 by louisag (1 review written)

We went here a few years ago and were horrified to realise that it was one of the tatty sites we had laughed at while looking around campsites on a previous visit to Cornwall. I wish we had noted doen the name at that time, Ok, here's the good bit....the caravan was clean. The site was rough and dirty. The family who run it were unhelpful. My clothes smelled of chip fat after using the laundry's washing machines. Later in the holiday i saw a member of staff washing out the washcloths from the… Read Full Review

If you went there 'a few years ago', and hated it so much, why has it taken you so long to review it?
We have been going to Maribou for 7 years and would not stay anywhere else in Cornwall. I think you are describing somewhere else.If you stay in a caravan, you have to expect some noise from other campers.
Next time, stay in Scotland..better still, the outer Hebrides might suit you. Maribou is friendly, clean, brilliant helpful staff, great family entertainment, excellent facilities, amazing location and value for money! DONT avoid!! You will have a brilliant holiday here :)

Written on: 26/02/2014

This is rubbish, maybe a competitor???? I went on holiday here with my family for a week for a "cheap holiday" i loved the site and the local beaches so much i purchased my van in october last year. Its quiet, very very clean, has chip shops, pub, amusement room, entertainment/bar. I love it, its not blinging with lights and slot machines like others i have been to in the past but i liked that and didn't spend so much money as spent most of our time on the amazing local beaches. Please please please ignore above it really can not be true.

Complete rubbish I lived there for 3 years I did the entertainment and wouldn't work at a holiday park that you described, so you obviously have the wrong site or planet.

“Great find - great value for money - family site -”

Written on: 10/02/2012 by MikeAliamelia (1 review written)

We cam across this site whilst looking for a caravn site.the site is an excellent family run place and the value for money excellent . The whole family run the site and will help you whatever the problem. Yes it's not top of the range but what iyou get on site and it's location near great beaches is far better than other sites charging far more for less ! The caravan was spacious and very clean with kids play areas . It located near st meryn which is an excellent Cornish village And all… Read Full Review

“We'll be back”

Written on: 29/07/2011 by mauricevanessa (1 review written)

we love cornwall & always will, we have been visiting the area for quite a few years with the kids & now just the 2 of us. We found that Maribou is not high end, but clean & tidy.At present the caravans are being upgraded & we were disappointed that the caravan we usually stop in had been replaced, but when we got there we found that the one that we had been allocated was much larger & better. The site has entertainment in the club house which cater for children. It has a games room for the… Read Full Review

“terrible place”

Written on: 31/05/2011

when we first pulled onto the nice part of the site we were impressed, then you come to the end and into Maribou, and all i can say is that our hearts sank, was like something back 20 years ago, caravans green, broken down cars that had been there years, old toilets outside some vans that had had new ones in, my husband and daughter were gutted, no facilities unless you like rough looking ones, and now i know why they chose to not have it officially rated, the kids tiny park had used tampons in… Read Full Review

agree this is rubbish, we went on holiday here for a week with my family, fell in love with the site and purchased a van a year later. Its is very clean, family run business near some of the best beaches in cornwall. Lovely play are and mini golf thats free, tennis courts, dog excercise area and people just chilling in the bar. Check out my caravan pics on my facebook page and see for yourself

This site was rather amazing it is a quite yet up beat site were people and staff are friendly and you can have a laugh with all the people on the site which is very nice to know.

I recommend people to vist this site as it is very lovely st merryn is only a mile away and tescos is about 4miles away and the nearst shopping place is newquay which 7miles.

Written on: 02/08/2010 by Presterjohn (1 review written)

Very odd little site. It has some very rough edges to it but is still used by some obviously wealthy people (when it comes to owned caravans at least).It is a park within a park and when you go through the posh park into Maribou you may think you have gone 20 years into the past. They don't seem to have a time limit on the age of caravans so quite a few are very tired and green with age others or very expensive and modern looking. All the staff we came across were very grizzled and rough… Read Full Review
