Hafan Y Mor was a excellent holiday from the moment we got there! i went with my boyfriends family and had a fantastic week! we got the train down there which was a bit of a pain but on the upside had lovely views on the way there.

This was a five day break for myself and two children (age 12 and 8). Check in was quick and we were half board so had booked a chalet for the 5 days. The Chalet was clean and basic and close to the restaurant and swimming pool. The food was ok, the kids liked the idea of helping themselves and I enjoyed the salad bar. There is lots to do for the children and and this is where this holiday site excels. We had full days and so did not bother with the night-life (which is atypical holiday... (read more)

Just been informed today(25/4/11) by staff on the owners desk at Hafan y mor, that if you are in possession of an "Owners Exclusive" Card (one of the 10 that are granted to owners of Caravans) it NO LONGER entitles you to sign in and get free day passes for your family,that are holidaying with you.Thus, the extra cost for a family of six adults(one holding a Owners Pass), would be £190 per week(5 X £38:peak season).Rather expensive if you just want a pint and a game of bingo!!!Makes you...

I have just returned from havan y mor and found the whole experience rather poor. The vast majority of guests have a check in time of 4pm, there were only a maximum of 4 staff sometimes only 3 to check in therefore the queue was very long (approx 55mins to check in).
