Not for me

ProKids entertainment was actually very good.

ConsEverything else.

Pontins, Prestatyn Sands It's not usually in my nature to write one-star reviews; I generally find something in the way of redeeming features in everything I review. Sadly, not this time. Weekend in Wales My Aunt retired to North Wales a few years ago, so as a family we try get down a couple of...

Pontins at Brean Sands Somerset Holiday Camps. No longer a hi-di-hi experience with heavy tents that falls down in the midnight rainstorm, or the dirty dancing encounter where your parents assume that you love to sit huddled in the corner whilst some drab old man stands on the stage telling...

Just got back from a short Break at Pontins Southport with myself, boyfriend and my three kiddies so here is my review. What Is Pontins? Pontin's is a British holiday company founded in 1946 by Fred Pontin. It specialises in offering half-board and self-catering holidays with regular...

ConsPrice of the drinks!

Oh thankfully, a holiday, we decided to forgo the long drive abroad and stay in the UK. We trawled and trawled through the Internet looking for a bargain and gave up in favour of Bakers Dolphin. They cam up with a seven night stay with Pontins, we decided to ignore past reviews, worked out that...

Proclose to beach and amusements

Conseverything else, cheap, shabby, poor

We stayed at Pontins Brean Sands near Burnham on Sea in Somerset in October 2007. We booked this through The Sun Newspaper holiday scheme, so it cost us £38 for 3 nights and a further £12 for entertainment passes. We decided to take our own bed linen to save another £6. Electricity was thrown in...

“PONTINS PRISONER OF WAR CAMP”

published 19/10/2001

ProAre you being bloody funny?

ConsDon't know where to start, just read the opinion.

Once again, thanks to reading another opinion, it has inspired me to write one on the same topic, this times the thanks goes to “Judgee”, and the topic I’m about to talk about is Pontin’s Prisoner of War Camps, oops sorry, Holiday Camps! Now before I start, I want to make...

ProCheap, cheerful, loads of netball

ConsTired!!! We have never won it.

Pontins, alongside Butlins, the mainstay of British family holidays, except for a few weekends a year when thousands of netballers flock to Brean Sands for a weekend of serious netball………and some quite serious drinking too. Our weekend cost around £200 (didn’t pay for it myself) which included 2...

Consnot enough on site

We are just back from Pontins Southport and to be honest I really did not want to go as I had seen a holidays from hell type of programme the week before we were due to go and it looked really bad like a concentration camp the rooms look horrible and it completely put me off. But I went got all...

ConsNot the holiday advertised, poorly maintained

Last year we went to Blackpool and stayed in a holiday flat along the sea-front, this year we fancied returning to Blackpool, but fancied something different, something that would keep the kids entertained and a well earned rest for myself and my wife Sarah. Pontins seemed the obvious choice and...

Back in February my partner and I decided we needed a holiday and our 17 month old daughter deserved her first holiday! I have a phobia of flying so abroad was out of the question! We started looking for holidays in this country! We looked at the pontins website http://www.pontins.com/ which is...

“Oh no not Pontins Brixham”

published 22/10/2001

ProAt least we had a good laugh about it!

ConsSee the opinion - there's too many to list here!

I have recently read an opinion by Brianlfc about Pontins and it struck quite a chord with me. In fact, as soon as I read his title, I though I bet he went to Wall Park at Brixham and sure enough I was right. So, just in case you didn’t have enough excitement reading about Brian’s...

For an 18th birthday treat, my friends' parents booked for 6 of us to go to Pontins in Rye, near Hastings. Before we left, a member of our party warned us all to look at the reviews and prepare for the worst. Naturally, we all lost our excitement for it and prepared to expect hell-on-earth. So...

For whatever reason it seems that people only tend to leave a review of somewhere when they have had a bad experience...just human nature I guess, but certainly makes life difficult for those who look at reviews hoping to get an honest appraisal of somewhere - which I think it's fair to say that...
