Haven Caister Holiday Park overview

Well-maintained, safe environment for a child friendly holiday. Close to a lovely sandy beach with sand dunes and rock pools to explore. Huge outdoor swimming pool with water flumes and Jacuzzi. The Rory Club will keep the younger kids amused as well as the Bouncy Castle, crazy golf, trampoline and so much more.

Memories, all alone in the moonlight......

17 Jul 2012
Visited with: Infant
Childhood memories of a caravan park on the beach, hot, sunny summer days and tons of entertainment are the things that tempted me back to Haven at Caister-on-Sea and I can honestly say my illusions were not shattered. We travelled as a party of mummy, daddy, the twins, our 2 year old niece and Nanny and Grampie! We all stayed in 3 bedroom caravan. On arrival at the park we were greeted by a friendly security guard who gave us brilliant directions and made a suggestion that as it was tipping it down ('In Britain?' I hear you cry?? Never) we could perhaps take the children to the soft play. We did just that and were amazed at how large the facility was and the fact it was free was an added bonus. After burying ourselves in the ball pool for an hour we were ready to check in. The caravan was clean and tidy (if a little snug). I would suggest if you are at the stage of needing a travel cot, to remove one of the fold away beds to make space in the bedrooms as it is a little tight. Haven is a self catering site so we cooked tea in the caravan and then headed to the evening entertainment. The 'Live Lounge' is really large and we found a seat at the front ready for the disco and childrens show to start. The entertainment provides something for everyone. My only criticism of the entertainment over the 3 nights was that it is quite slow and often the children had to do a lot of waiting around (with 3 two year olds this didn't quite work for us!). After lots of dancing to children's songs, we retired to bed. The following morning there was a big shiny thing in the sky so we quickly ran outside to stare at the novelty. We headed to the soft play again and then went down to the beach. The beach literally is on the parks doorstep. Sand dunes are beginning to colonise the area but there are some lovely sandy spots with a little shale. The sea is quite shallow and freezing cold. We then tried the swimming pool as we felt that this may be a little warmer. We had great fun. There is a large seating area on the poolside for those people who don't want to swim and the changing rooms were clean with family rooms. Following another night of disco dancing, we were up bright and early for a trip into Great Yarmouth. Great Yarmouth is a lovely seaside resort. It has a long sandy, clean beach and the promenade is full of typical British seaside resort attractions. We were planning to visit the Sealife Centre but as it was such a nice day, we went on the donkeys and then played in the arcades. For lunch we visited a carvery restauant on the seafront called 'The Terrace' (see seperate review). It really was great value and we left feeling full and contented. Children sleepy, we headed back the caravan and got ready for our final night of entertainment. The site is full of attractions for toddlers, children and teenagers (some things free, some not). Oveall, we had an excellent time on this holiday. It was cheap, cheerful and the customer service was excellent ! We will definately be back!

fab family holiday

Visited with: Infant
i went to have last september and stayed in one of the static caravans with my partner and then 9 month old son. the weather was reasonable this was a good family holiday we used most of the facilities including the clubhouse and the swimming pool. having a baby meant that we also had to use the launderette which was reasonably priced and very quick machines who wants to spend the holiday washing clothes. the entertainment was good little boring for ourselves as it is very much aimed at the children and my son being a baby didnt really appreciate it. the swimming pool was nice and large with slides but was the building was slightly green and slimey which got on my coat. this site wasright on the beach but was tricky to get to the beach with the buggy. over all we had a good time and would probably go back when my son is a bit older so that he can do a few more of the activities.

We stayed at the Haven Holiday Park in Caister in early October. On arrival we located the main “ballroom” where we were to check in – it was like stepping back in time! It was everything you’d expect to see at Butlins in the 1950’s – tatty chairs and tables and elderly ladies handing out bed sheets – we didn’t use the ballroom for the rest of our stay. As we were on a special offer, we hadn’t pre-booked our type of accommodation and were allocated a “chalet”. The Chalet looked like a post war prefab building on the outside and had a terrible mouldy smell and wallpaper peeling off the walls inside! I returned to the check in area and asked to be moved immediately. In fairness they did move us to a much nicer caravan, which although it was old, was adequate. However, if you are planning on staying in the colder months, I would recommend that you take some sort of electric heater – as the bedrooms have no heaters. On the positive side most of the facilities were very good, the new swimming pool was great and free swimming lessons were a bonus, the onsite supermarket had everything you could need but was quite expensive. The new entertainment building which houses a new bar/restaurant and a games arcade is very nice, and the kids absolutely love it! There was also a great indoor soft play area for the younger children. We didn’t use the kids clubs this time but I think during the Summer months there is a lot more going on. The location is great with direct access to sandy dunes and within easy reach of Great Yarmouth. We will not be returning to the holiday park at Caister, but we will be giving Haven another try this year!

We had a lovely holiday, enjoyed everything about our stay. The evening entertaiment got very loud (microphones) which made it hard to understand and hurt my younger daughter ears, so could have been turned down a little bit, but the quality of entertainment was excellent. The park was very clean, hopefully some of the older buildings (like where we used to have breakfast, and ice cream by the ocean) will be regenerated so that they can be enjoyed again, but new bar was excellent. Overall thank you for a lovey time, and we will be back soon

We were pleasantly suprised at Caister, especially with the cleanliness of the park. The other thing that really stood out was the number of staff available on the whole site, if we had any queries they were more than helpful, and they always had a "hello" for my two boys. Overall, top notch

We thought that the bradley bear picnic at Caister was exceptional value for money, and kids entertainment was fantastic for an out of season holiday. We've been raving to our friends since we came back. Well done.
