Absolutely awful such a disappointment. Spent a fortune for a 1 week break 'stay and play' we couldn't book ANY activities, no swimming, no activities, no restaurant and no entertainment so ultimately paid through the nose for a caravan.
Caravan was shabby with a door that doesn't close properly with a constant draft.
Poor staff all seemed to be clueless teenagers who had no idea what to do and not a manager in site.

If you think you will be able to go and chill and have a drink in the bar... .forget it! If you haven't 'booked'you have no chance. Never experienced a 'holiday'like it.

We are NEVER going to book a Haven 'holiday'again. If you want a top tip, go to a Park Dean site where you can actually enjoy the amenities without the stress and disorganised nonsense.

We will be looking for a partial refund due to the lack of access to 'Stay and Play'.

We’ve just got back from quay west, haven caravan park and for us as a family it wasn’t what I thought it would be, we couldn’t book any activities for our children even thou we were under a stay and play option?? our children were so annoyed at this not being able to use the pool once over a 4 day break, it was a bit harsh on them as they were seeing others play but they couldn’t. The access to the arcade was always an open option and the volume of people in there could get quite intense at times.

The on site shop is really expensive so before you check in there is a Lidl in Aberystwyth to get what you need.

The caravan itself was only partly cleaned hair/pubs in bathroom grease everywhere in the kitchen we called the cleaners back and I cleaned it myself while she waited at the door.

Heating was absolutely fine in our caravan although I suggest you bring your own duvet and pillows from home every time myself or my hubby rolled over we took the duvet with us leaving one in us cold and exposed. Really poor quality bedding in all rooms including the kids room.

The beach is absolutely beautiful although the walk down to it is pretty steep and dangerous and only has some support on one side covered in nettles to help you down and back up which isn’t really that helpful, there are no other access points to the beach from the park!

We didn’t bother trying to eat in the restaurant as the cue was always massive we found ourselves going off site a lot and exploring the local area and going for some food out at a local restaurants which you had to book in advance.

We made the most of it as a family and will definitely use haven again. we will just do our homework on surrounding areas before we book and make reservations and come better prepared.. over all I’d give this site 4/10

Booked a year in advance. Booked a NEW platinum caravan at milkwood way. Arrived and yes we were in milkwood way but it was most definitely not a new platinum caravan, at most it was a standard. Very very shabby, holes in the kitchen cupboards, dents in the fridge which also had an inch worth of dust on top. The floor was ripped. Basic furniture. The website states “exquisite interiors”, this was not “exquisite” it really was awful. The website made it look beautiful, it wasn’t. Complained to reception, complained afterwards and then again and no one has been interested. We DID NOT get what we booked and paid for. We booked a NEW PLATINUM caravan which we did not get. Refused to stay in it.
Sort your website out, stop misleading people and take responsibility.

On a brighter note the site is lovely with sea views, which by the way you can’t see at all from milkwood way, not even a glimpse so don’t pay extra for the “best location” as it’s not, caravan 23 at milkwood way is not a new platinum caravan that you think your getting so if your offered that REFUSE IT straight away to save yourself some disappointment!! Book a caravan on site so you have the lovely sea views. Ended up staying in a 2 bed downgrade (prestige) which was by far a lot LOT nicer then the NEW PLATINUM grade.

Room tip: Avoid milkwood way!!

Booked a stay and play holiday for this site. Couldn’t get any tables for food on the booking app. Or any activities as it’s just for over fives mainly. Booked the swimming session and had to wear wrist bands. They fell off in ten mins of being in the water and we had a pool full off wrists Bands floating all over. Very Covid friendly not. We went in to ask about meals and were told the booking app doesn’t let you book more than three people. So family of more than three people you have to go in. The waiter told us that you can’t swap anything on the menu either so if you have a one year old that likes sausages and chips you’ve gotta order two meals for one child or just stick to the one displayed. So my one and two year old had great joy throwing the spiralized veggies all over the place. The outside veranda was never full and neither was the inside. The arcade was always open but the entertainment was a bloke in a costume dancing to old songs. Then bingo. We left after one drink. The beach is beautiful I will give it that but if you’ve a pram to take it’s gonna be an adventure. The hills are horrendous to get back up and the one route with steps as advertised is unsafe as one of the steps is rusted away and has a stone in the middle. But not actually part of the park apparently and council owned I was told when complaining. The mattress we had in the caravan was broken and the heating didn’t work either. We came away early as the place was abysmal. Nothing for kids to do and we spent most of the time away from the park. The response we got back from haven was a ten percent of our money back for not being able to book activities. It cost us 100 pound more to book stay and play and they offered us fifty quid. Disgusting from the haven site and you can’t complain like you would if you’d booked through a travel place to go abroad as it’s not part of the insurance people. Save yourself the money and just go to the beach a couple of times during the holidays and a couple of trips to A theme park. Much more worth the money.

I'll summarise. Arrived as instructed at 5.00, reception shut on busy Saturday. Tried many times over several days to book activity...any activity ...for kids, none available. Offered one swim in pool but in 3 weeks time.
Told outside tables fully booked yet only 2 were in use.
Covid gets the blame,but that's only partly true.
Outside pool closed most days in sunny weather. How is that covid?
Management is notably absent.
Try telling your kids (in our case 2 grandkids) they cant do the things they have been looking forward to. It's not a happy experience.
Only upside we were in private clean caravan.

Dont go !!!
