I actually won a free 4night stay here, with my partner and my 3year old son. We stayed in a lodge. I am not sure what the prices are like normally, I think they are decent, as there was a lot of people there even though it was term time. The lodge was lovely. 2bedrooms downstairs with ensuites and were a good size. The upstairs was an open plan living area and kitchen. It was very clean and had everything you would need in the kitchen, so you wouldnt need to bring anything. It was self catering, but we just got food from the supermarket, as the shop on site is expensive. We went into Tenby for the day, to the beach and the shops and went to a Sainsburys there. Even though it wasnt warm, there was a lot of things to do if you didnt want to leave the site. The blue lagoon pool is free to use and that was good. They had a big pool, a small section for the toddlers with slides and games, waves and a lazy river, which took you outside and back in, which my 3year old really enjoyed. There are also big slides, 2 of which go out of the building. There is an adventure centre with a few things to do. There is a games room, soft play and lego room which is free of charge also, so that keeps the kids entertained. There were activities you could book and do, but there wasnt much on for my sons age on the days we were here, except messy play, which he didnt want to do. There is a little village which was nice, has shops, a little park, restaurants, a lake and a spa. There were lots of different actvities you oculd book to do for an additional price, for the older kids and adults. The park itself is really big, and I liked that there was no driving, as there are a lot of kids about. You had to leave yuour cars in the car park. Due to the park being so big, you can hire buggies to drive round on. They were a decent price, cost us £70 for 4days, and saves us having to walk with our son to all the things on the park, which were a fair walk away, plus in the cold. You definately need wellies as it is muddy pretty much everywhere. There are plenty of beaches nearby. We went to tenby and that was a 15minute drive and there are other towns nearby which you can go and visit. I liked that there was a dishwasher, so we didnt have to wash up, and we were provided with dishwasher tables, washing up liquid, bin bags. tea towels etc. The bathroom in the bedroom my son stayed in, was big and it was a wet room, it also had underfloor heating in there. Both bathrooms had heated towel rails. There were stair gates on the bottom and top of the stairs, tv, dvd player and free wifi. On bonfire night they had a small fireworks display which was nice, then a band playing music.The only negative things I would say, is the lodge could have done with a bit of dusting, there were cobwebs on most of the lights and the lamps in the bedroom, on the inside were covered in dust, and myself and my son have astmah, and dust doesnt help. Also there were heaters in every room on the wall. but not modern ones, the ones which you cant cover, and they had temperatures on from off to 7 being the highest, but you could only get them to come on at 7, so it would be boiling, if it was lower than 7 no heat came out. I would definately recommend bluestone, it was a lovely break away , the lodge was great, there were plenty of thingd to do, even if you just used the free services they were good and other towns were nearby. Would definately come back.

Unfortunately my family and I must have visited somewhere completely different from the one detailed on the website. We arrived to find that the kitchen of the Skomer lodge we had been booked to stay in was dirty, crumbs on the kitchen surfaces, dirty marks on cupboards etc, and a dreadful smell. We didn't want it to put a dampener on things so we just requested that it be cleaned again -- this didn't happen in the 7 days we were there. To add to this, we also found a couple of used tissues under the sofa from previous residents, and to be completely honest there was nothing for our two young children to do. The playground doesn't really consist of much that a three year old and 18 month old could play with - there weren't even child swings, and the swimming pool was a joke for them. There was a baby pool, which was colder than the main pool, and a tiny slide -- everything else was inaccessible for there age/height. My 3 year old son was hurt on our last day and needed hospital treatment, unfortunately Bluestones level of customer care and treatment is atrocious. With the cost you would also expect some privacy, but the lodges are on top of one another, believe me you have no peace when other peoples children are running around in your 'private' back garden. I would never recommend or stay there again. One plus point to the stay was the food in the on-site pub was lovely and so were the staff, but I would whole heartedly never recommend or stay there again.

Stayed at Bluestone in a Skomer Lodge in October 2008 with my wife and two children (8 and 6). Accomodation was excellent quality, way superior to similar places we have stayed at. Despite being out of season there was plenty to do both for parents and kids, from archery to pony trekking and even whale watching. Be warned though, the outdoor excursions can be very expensive particulary for a family. Offsite, Oakwood Theme park is right next door, which compared to most theme parks in the UK was pretty good value for money - well worth a visit. Pembrokeshire itself is rich in local historic sites and castles aplenty. Speak to the owner of the wine bar (where you can also relax with a coffee in the day). Fascinating character with several books and maps of the local area, really brings it's history to life. As with other staff on the complex, genuinely warm and friendly. Kids clubs with sensible times helped us 'escape' for our own fun. Game of badminton at the gym, followed by an hour at the spa pool, sauna and relaxation rooms. Getting around, we hired bikes onsite. Bluestone is built on a fairly steep valley and the road from the bottom (restaurants and shops) to the top (leisure centre and lagoon pool) is fairly steep and windy in places. Plenty of good exercise if you're fit, otherwise walking the grass bank off road directly up and back down is just as quick. You can also hire golf buggies (seating 4 or 6) for around the same as bikes cost for a family of four. Aside from the minibus which runs to and from the kids clubs, the roads are car free which is great for the kids safety, particularly on bikes. All in all we felt that a lot of thought has been put into the design of the site and facilities at Bluestone to cater well for families with young children. Take for example the toy tractors in the square at the heart of the village. Just pick one up and ride around (and when you're done, let the kids a go:-)). Simple idea, but a complete novelty to the kids and all within sight and earshot of the restaurants and wine bar - just sit back and let them do what they do. The kids had a great time. And so did we.
