Our car journey from Hertfordshire to camber was a good easy drive. Olivia slept for most of it and I was joined by my sister which meant we finally got to have a much needed catch up and chat. As soon add we hit the village Rye I started to feel excited. Lots of good childhood memories were flooding back and I knew we were nearly there.
The pontins big blue building stood out like a sore thumb. First impressions and all that. Definitely needs a new look.
On arrival we met Gary Donald assistant manager. He welcomed us with a very respectful manner and gave us a choice of apartments to choose from. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a 2 bed club that was spacious enough for my sister and I to have our own rooms as well as a living area and separate kitchen/diner.
Olivia was more than happy to sit and watch the other kiddies playing whilst eating her lunch.
As I said we bought our car so literally filled it with every thing we needed. Bed linen, towels, pillows , food and even deck chairs. We really had no need to leave the apartment but the weather was amazing so we explored and had some great trips out.
There were play areas on camp for both babies and young children. There are also a lot of activities for teenagers including giant sized go karts whizzing around the camp.
And of course again the beach. Whether day or night the blue flag beach at camber is just a stunning location. I’ve spent many summers there and I will spend many more with family and friends in the years to come.
So my thoughts for Pontins.
Looking for a cheap budget break to entertain the kids then absolutely. Not recommended for adults or couples without children.
Food on camp not that great so load the car up and take your own. From our experience in a club apartment the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. Thank you Pontins for a great break away and thank you for our cuddly toys!
