Besides winning awards in the ‘Best UK Park Operator’ category at the British Travel Awards for 3 years in a row, you’ll find lots of great reasons to stay with Parkdean. In fact, in the last three years alone we’ve spent £33 million across our 24 parks, with £12 million spent in 2013, to make sure your Parkdean holiday experience is the best ever!
There are two Hayling Islands. The first is our fabulous holiday park where there's always plenty to do, from splashing around in the indoor and outdoor pools to enjoying the live entertainment. The second is beautiful Hayling Island itself, set just off the Hampshire mainland with glorious Blue Flag beaches, great golf and spectacular views across to the Isle of Wight. Better still... they're both all yours!

Really disgusted. Arrived with our two young children to find the caravan stank of urine! Went to reception to complain. Was assured that it would be sorted out. Within 10 mins the Head of Cleaning turned up with some air freshener!
Sofas were thread bare. Cooker was greasey. so that we could stay in reasonable comfort I had to go out and buy cleaning stuff and bleach. Spent the next few hours cleaning. It is clear that the cleaners use one cloth / mop to clean the bathroom and then out into the main living area (possibley even the kitchen for all I know). I am not house proud by any means but this was horrible. The taps were filthy too so it wasn't just an error on one occassion.
Swimming pools where good. Restaurants sold the usual rubbish. Shop very expensive and not well stocked.
If you stay here order a shopping delivery from a good supermarket or there is a Tesco Express near by, and include in your shop cleaning products.
We have stayed at a few Parkdean sites and have been very pleased with the caravans / cleaning etc but we will never return to the Hayling Island one.

Well What can i say...What a load of rubbish..Got there early had to wait hours for the key.When we got into our caravan it wasnt what we expected it wasnt that clean..In the kids room there was a handle missing off the window...Under the fridge and freezer there were crumbs... The Glasses in the cupboard were dirty.. The Entertment was soooo boring....The shop on site was very expensive...And it was a bit of a walk to the beach which had nothing there apart from a little fun fair and a few argades and NO shops...We booked for 4 nights but left on the 3rd night...

My mother and a friend stayed at this site for a long weekend, apart from the weather being bad, the caravan was very poor, certainly nothing like the pictures portrayed on the website, pillows on the bed were yellow and very worn and thin, curtains torn and falling off the windows, very uncomfortable beds, sofas were very tired and worn and very uncomfortable, rather a waste of money I'm afraid.

Arrived at park about 2.30pm 2 adults and 2 children (under 6). Don't expect to get keys for caravan if you arrive early...not available until 4pm!
Indoor pool temperature a little chilled (kids soon became cold)
Just 2 showers in pool area (non in changing room). Not allowed to use shampoo!
Entertainment staff not bad but a little overworked I felt (not much variety). Karaoke cancelled...not happy...was looking forward to some adult stuff!
Great for young kids..not so for teens or adults!
Overall...small, quiet park, clean and tidy, but felt cramped.
4 nights was more than enough

Hayling Island has some points going for it with others making it not so good.
On the good side our caravan was near new and immaculate - only "complaint" was the cooker wasnt self igniting.
The staff were very helpful on arrival and on other occasions. The site was also very clean all over.
There is entertainment on the site and we went to 2 of the bingo sessions which was fun - but there were only about 30-40 people in a room for 200, top prize of £66.
This was one of the downsides with there being no atmosphere. We're not nightlife hawks, but it made the place seem "dead".
The camp people who looked after the kids were very good as well, but there were few kids for them to look after, and I think that made it difficult for them.
We had our 6 yr old G/Daughter with us and she loved the "Crazy Caves" room where she could have a slide, jump on a room full of balls etc.
The biggest down for the site is that theres no shop, so if you need something like matches to light your cooker, or find you've forgotton to bring bread etc, it means a car trip. The nearest shop is about half our walk away. We found it strange for such a large site to have no shop.
The location is not the best either being about a mile from the seafront, again another car journey.
Another point was there were loads of posters and leaflets inviting you to buy your own caravan, and when handing in keys at end ( with a 50% deposit ). My wife was made to wonder if they were trying to sell off all the caravans, and lots seem to be privately owned already.
Hayling Island has no sandy beaches, and a local warned us that the currents can be dangerous.
If your into kite surfing its great. ( theres a live webcam if you look up Hayling Island surfcam.)
For anyone interested in railways Hayling island has a seafront railway as well, but all in all its not really what we'd call a holiday resort.
To sum up the site is clean etc but without a shop and its location lets it down
Clean and well maintained quiet site. I believe most vans privately owned at present which makes it a little quiet, lacking a "holiday park" feel. great for small children-good animation team. Pleasant indoor and outdoor pool.
Premier caravans very comfortable indeed. Only drawback is no outdoor furniture to sit on. I think that's to encourage you to sit on their little patio and buy their refreshments.
We took two teens, big mistake. The weather didnt help either. The entertainment wasnt great and the club house was nearly empty once the kids shows were over. This could be because the weather was so awful all over the UK at the time, it may have put people off travelling but it was the first week of the school holidays in July so we did expect more of a holiday atmosphere.
