A brilliant 10 day hol at Hendra with extended family. What a great place! Two of our families had a top of the range caravan..superb, and three families had budget range and we struggled to find the difference between them, apart from size and content! Everywhere is immaculate, so clean and the staff are sooo freindly. Our kids couldn't get enough of the kids club and the entertainment was great too, very funny comedian. Family favourites was the indoor pools, couldn't get them out of there, the train and the club, and pizzas from the pizza cafe! Town and beaches very close, we loved Dairyland and the Zoo both nearby, and Fistral beach surfing even though its was a bit cold! We've booked for next year and my sister has booked again for this July. Thoughly recommended park, fantastic value for money, genuinely family orientated (no groups of noisy singles!), and has everything you'd need.
