“This review is to let people know that it was obvious...”

Written on: 18/11/2010

This review is to let people know that it was obvious that pontins standards dropped over the last few years. I visited pontins twice a year as a kid this was in the 90s and it was amazing, the chalets were clean and looked after, the food was always gorgeous and full of choices and the bluecoats would do anything for you. It had blackpool down the road and the sand dunes across it… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/01/2010 by best2best (1 review written)

Pontins in Blackpool was a great place when it was open , I am nearly crying now it's shut. I had so many memorys there. The free brakfast , dinner and tea was LUSH !! It was sooooo nice :) the food made youi drool! The shalets were so small, but so sweet ! There was soooo much room, the park was awsome, the pool was great, the night club was great with the blue coats. I really miss blackpool, I was there twice and I miss it sooo much. I hope they re-open it in the future. :[ x x x x x x x x… Read Full Review

“Heard this morning that Balckpool Pontins is closing,...”

Written on: 04/10/2009 by piglet0909 (1 review written)

Heard this morning that Balckpool Pontins is closing, best news ever.
I was there with my sons football team in May and I have never seen anything like it. The staff were unhelpful,rude and really just couldn't have done anything else to be so unhelpfull. The room was disgusting -dirty, holes in bed sheets, dirty cups and by the first morning after wakening up the room was crawling with ants.
We've been to Cuba twice and to different resorts and for basically a 3rd world country by god they… Read Full Review

I worked there back then the staff were rude to us as well, our chalets weren't up to scratch, mine had spiders in it, I had to move chalets when the carpet became all wet, none of the toilets had seats.

“This is the third time I have been to Pontins,...”

Written on: 04/10/2009

This is the third time I have been to Pontins, Blackpool - I'm sorry the camp is now closing.
The check-in is a bit chaotic - there were two areas to book in "A to L" and "M to Z" - but this was not obvious to people queueing out the door and we wasted 15 mins before we realised this.
The accommodation is basic and the whole camp looks a bit down at heel.
The entertainment at night was good and the Restaurant meals were very good - as they have been on each of my visits.
And of course it is a… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/09/2009

So,so, sad to see Pontins go from Blackpool. We first stayed there in 2000 courtesy of the Inverness Sunshine Holiday fund,(our young son has a serious heart problem)and we have returned every single year since, at our own expense. We have thoroughly enjoyed every single one of our holidays there over the past 9 years and were already planning next years visit when we heard the bad news. Thanks to all staff and good luck wherever life takes you… Read Full Review

Just heard Pontins is closing in October. About time too. I booked in for 4 nights in August this year with my daughter and her family.

I couldnt see through the windows of my chalet, but when I went in uggghhh the smell, knocked me sick, the room not cleaned, beds unmade, rubbish bin tipped, I stepped over the banana skins and stuck to the carpet, I wondered what was behind other door, but dont ask me what it was… Read Full Review

“We have just come back from blackpool pontins. ”

Written on: 08/09/2009

We have just come back from blackpool pontins.
Its still in the 80's! the entertainment if you call it that was cancelled at last minute as it was just out of season. They did have entertainment for the kids but nothing else. The crazy golf was a joke!The go-kart track was rubbish and out of the way! The only thing i can say was ok was the chalet, couldnt fault it, it was clean, good size only downfall sometimes late at night you did have the odd plane or helicopter go over from the airport… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/09/2009

We had a great time last weekend at Pontins, Blackpool. We stayed in club chalets, basic but spotless. Fresh white towels and fresh bedding lovely. Good food in the canteen, friendly staff, the bluecoats very entertaining and great cabaret. We read the reviews before we went too but gave it a chance and our children loved it at Pontins. So remember its not a 5 star hotel but a good old fashioned british holiday!!!! Its a shame its so old because looks are deceiving… Read Full Review

Arrived at Pontins today oh my God! It looks like a run down prison and we were not even going to bother checking in. However I decided to take a look at the room it was a club room, basic but clean, the surrouning area was free from litter. The security staff were good, before checking in I tried to take a look and they would not allow me on site prior to checking in so thumbs up to them. After a wander around and seeing the people staying we decided to leave. Say no more ! Rundown and… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/08/2009

I am most disappointed in the attitude shown by Pontin's to their customers. I booked a family weekend in Pontin's Blackpool in October, to avail of the facilities, and see the illuminations. After paying the booking deposit, booked non refundable air fares. Pontin's contacted me to say the weekend was now going to be for over 55's, and cancelled my booking. Although I got a refund on the deposit, this was only after a considerable number of calls to their call centre. Despite 2 letters I… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/08/2009

Paid £900 for 4 days in July, for Club Accomodation, don't know why I bothered upgrading because they are disgusting. Spent the whole four days in Blackpool because nothing to do in the Camp, swimming pool smelled of urine, nothing for kids to do during the day, When we got home we discovered my little girls ipod missing, i phoned Pontins Blackpool to ask if it had been handed in they said they would get back to me, after four further calls they told me nothing had been found i also discovered… Read Full Review
