“Not a holiday for adults only”

Written on: 01/06/2021 by RavenWard210 (1 review written)

We arrived 14th May 2020 and booked to stay until 24th may,we were not told nothing would be open until the 17may,we were in our caravan number 28at Green lawns in boulevard.
On 17th May 2020 we went to the Embassy club to watch a show there was a very strong smell of urine coming from the men's toilets ot could be smelt in the hall,I told someone they said it was coming from underneath and was being dealt with,the smell was still there 2 days later.
The application for Embassy club kept coming up for the smoky bar,covid instructions were not being followed properly,children were running everywhere instead of being with their parents.
There was a quiz night boys against girls with the staff,staff were jumping over the barriers running around like lunatics only going to one table to get answers to the musical quiz no though for health a d safety or people's safety with regards to covid and not giving other people a thought to answer the questions,also people near the barriers often had to move as the staff were jumping.
Drink orders were getting muddled and taking up to 45 minutes to arrive,
The show was made awful with music drowning out performers and mike's crackling and giving feedback.
On the18th May 2020 asleep in our caravan we were woken to rumbling machinery,and cultivators down in Boulevard green lawns digging outside opposite our caravan,we asked what the hell was going on and was told trees and plants were being planted around the site,we were not told of this happening at all the machinery was bulky and noisy we had to shut the doors and caravan windows and could still not hear our stereo or TV.
The company ems were being used,we could not use our balcony due to blue dust from the blue marking chalk blowing in the wind.then they were outside our bedroom window early the next morning,surely this could have been done during lockdown,it made us miserable and want to go home,but as we had paid up till the 24th May we had to stay or loose money.
There is not much on the sight for adults only 45 minutes shows and bingo on the 18th May 2020 we went to the Lido bar we managed to order drinks via the app on the table leaving a message to the kitchen for no ice in any drinks,we were table number 225,still the barman got all the drinks wrong and it was not busy at all.
We then went upstairs to the Whitehorse Theatre to pay bingo,our table 546 was unlevel,told a member of staff who said they would sort it,the barman came with our drinks and split the shot drink over the table,my husband and his bingo book,he apologised and said he will be back with a new book,cloths and drinks,20 minutes later my husband we t to get some beer mats and blue tissue to clean and stabilise our table,it was another 15 minutes before the barman came back,
There is only a fish and chip shop and papa John's take away onsight not everyone like these takeaways we went of sight 5 minutes and found a Chinese takeaway and kebab shop,why can't their menus put put in the caravan along with the pizza and fish and chil shop ones,apparently the manager will not permit these leaflets on his sight.
My uncle had a bad back and asked at time of booking for a mattress cover,when ask at the office they said use a duvet from the sofa bed in the front room.
20th May 2020 At the Whitehorse for bingo there were kids being noisy and running around while the caller was calling,he should have stopped and ask the parents to control the children or leave,table 515 made a tap before the caller called the number out as it came up on the screen,my uncle ended up doing a false call as the kids were calling out numbers,he called up on number 57 but it was a kid called the number not tje caller.
22nd May 2020 At the Whitehorse Theatre for bingo and it was packed and e tremely noisy,kids were running around around screaming etc,the lady caller did say can we quieten the noise please,doi g a shushing sound,it was so hard to hear we got up and went back to our caravan.
I am disabled I found it extremely hard to get around the sight,if you hire the golf cart etc its just for an hour,a daily or weekly scooter hire would be great,the doors are very heavy to open so automatic ones should be put in.
Most activities are for children with pools and activities being booked in advance so many people wait days for their kids to get on activities.Bunn leisure need to look at activities for outside the sight during the day for adults to do and add leaflets to their caravans.We would not recommend this holiday unless you have kids and a lot of money to spend.
Overall we had a miserable holiday,the weather did not help and not being told about the machinery,The holiday was booked by my uncle.
