Nice site with outstanding facilities, let down by poor management. 13/08/2017

    Amount of facilities and coastal location.

    Disliked: 

    Advertising hardstanding but all on grass so needs changing. Poorly managed, my daughter booked and paid for bowling slot online for 8:30 pm. Arrived at 8:20 pm to be told by security on reception desk, no bowling as reception staff had left at 8:00pm so have to come back in morning to sort out refund. Bowling is advertised on site as being until 10:00 pm. Second occasion of travellers on site in a short period of time, unnecessary if proper systems in place for prevention. Writing additional rules do not work, wake up, get off your assessment and get something physical done. Proactive approach not reactive. We were there for 9 days and during all that time the barrier post with the sensor attached was broken, causing the barrier to remain open for a large portion of the time. Online bookings are making you an easy target for travellers, word will be spreading! People need to be checked in to gain an access code or send out a pre activated swipe card to the addresses of people booking as travellers don't have fixed addresses! It's fantastic what's been done and invested but you might as well close the doors now if you don't sort the basics, before word spreads and people like myself stop coming. By the way your daytime security may be more efficient if he did more than walk around with a cup of coffee permanently stuck to his palm, as I was told he's the guy with the white polo t-shirt.

    Breakfast was excellent

    Disliked: 

    Pitches to small couldn't fit caravan and awning on pitch. Would move us even when asked. To close together. Didn't want to help because didn't book direct.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review of Fontygary. I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us as much as possible. We take our customer service very seriously and would never discriminate against someone because they booked through Pitchup instead of directly. We were unable to move you as we were fully booked for the majority of your stay.
Our pitches are within the industry recommended size and we rarely have an issue with customers not being able to fit on the pitch as they are designed for a caravan, awning and car, so I can only apologise if the pitch you were on was not big enough for you.

    Everything about the park. Located in an amazing area, easy access to local shops, enough entertainment for young children, beautiful food from the on site Indian restaurant, the takeaway and the main club. Showers and toilets were spotlessly clean.

    Nothing at all to dislike.
