Spent a week at Sandford September 2010 and had a lovely time. From the time of arriving we felt very welcome and the only problem we had was put right immediately. My daughter and her family of 11 month old boy and a 2 1/2 year old girl and her partner also had a caravan there at the same time.
The children were very well catered for by a team of staff with activities every day. The caravan and the whole camp was very clean. The bus stop was at the gate so we did not have to use the car to… Read Full Review

This was our first Park Dean holiday and i am very pleased to say that we would definitley book again. The staff were fantastic and the caraven was very clean and tidy. We spent most evenings in the main hall with the park troopers, we have two children one 6yrs and one 2yrs, both our children enjoyed all the games and singing. They catered very well for both of them.
I felt i wanted to write a review as prior to this trip all the reviews I had seen was giving a very negative feeling I… Read Full Review

Sandford Weststar Holiday Park has gone down hill this year. we have been many times but noticed a big difference in the cleaniness and overall appearance of the park.none of the staff abide by the one-way system or the 10mph speed limit.they are the worst offenders!
No security walking around park as previous years.
The only thing that hasnt changed were the fabulous troopers who work so hard and are great entertainers for all ages. well done guys.
Need to improve to get our money next year… Read Full Review

We have just returned from 4 nights camping at Weststar Holiday Parks. First, the toilet facilities are shocking! Filthy is an understatement. the facilities were appauling. No hot water. Very low pressure, we all felt dirty the whole time we were there. No toilet paper!
No soap. No locks on doors! No one was checking the facilities. The childrens play area amounts to a "boat". What a waste of time. We were packed in like sardines, lots of drunk adults swearing late at night! Security was none… Read Full Review

PARKDEAN HOLIDAYS, Sandford Park, Nr Poole. We have recently returned from Sandford Park having loved going as children. The site has no rules cars drive around the site at all times of night which resulted in the car of one of our group being damage by someone returning to their pitch in the early hours of the morning. Luckily the car was parked across the tent so noone was hurt but the culprit didn't stop and the lack of CCTV prevented us finding them. We were pitched next to the stables… Read Full Review

Booked a Sun offer holiday at Parkdean Sandford, as we did not pay much we did not expect much. However we were pleasently surprised, Got large caravan, not the latest model but it was clean and well equipped and everything worked ok (unlike the expensive "prestige" one we booked last year from another company it was a filthy dump) we also found the site clean and tidy with lots of trees and bushes, not just rows and rows of caravans. we did not go to all the entertainment but what we saw was… Read Full Review

we have just come back from a 4 night break at Weststar parkdean sandford and were very impressed. we have a child of 7 and of 2 years old and there was plenty for them to do. They both went to the free kids clubs and were allowed to go to both totstars and freelanders together even though thet were different ages. Great value for money and better than some Haven parks we have been to… Read Full Review

This was our 5th holiday with Parkdean formerly West-star, we had been to Sandford twice before, before it got modernised. Was impressed with what they had done to the site moving the outdoor pool, new restaurant etc, accomodation was a big let down, we have been to Parkdean/Weststar Mullion and their accommodation is spotless and well presented. On entering our caravan, it smelt like someone had been storing seaweed in it, it had obviously not been used for the majority of the summer and was… Read Full Review

Sorry but really disappointed with Weststar Holiday Parks, Standford. Been to quite a few campsites but this has been the worse. Too many pitches on one site in my view. We walked round to have a game of cricket/rounders. Nowhere to play!! They seem to have used up every inch of this site, and boy do you feel it! If they update all the shower blocks and remove pitches and made space I would recommend. If you like the what I thought was tacky eve entertainment you'll enjoy, but unfortunately not… Read Full Review

Sandford Holiday Park is great we have been now 4 times. The staff are brilliant and so friendly they always make time for you and the entertainment is fantastic. My children love it and so do I, come rain or shine there is always something to do. Can not wait to get back there.
Caravans are clean and tidy when we have always been and they deliver to your door extra pillows or sheets if you need them at no extra cost which is what you want. We have just got back from there and now planning to go… Read Full Review

Sandford is a lovely, clean park with friendly staff and in a lovely location near Poole, bournemouth and many other attractions. We loved the park so much that we even kept our caravan down there for the whole season. The kids love it and enjoy the characters - Sid and Lizzie and others. Definitley be back soon!! Thank you so much everyone… Read Full Review

This sort of holiday appeals to a lot of people, but it wasn't for us. Not really into arcade games for my kids or bingo, not our scene. Why stay in a dirty, cold caravan when its nearly the same price to hire a cottage?? All seemed a bit tacky, can't understand why Sandford was given an award?!… Read Full Review

we went in the October half term week,we had been to Sandford a couple of times in the last ten years,but this was the first time going back there since they have spent all the money on it.

I do not think we will go there again, as the reception staff seemed to have minders with them, quite intimidating! Restaurant prices looked expensive, and the food looked like it was frozen and boil in the bag… Read Full Review
