Teepees by the pool and Merlin Plage close by

Family holidays with young ones should be fun and exciting. Can you think of anything that fits the bill more than a parc with a Native American Indian-themed pool, complete with teepees and cacti?

Les Genêts is close to a sandy beach and surrounded by attractive woodland, but the real delight for kids will be the water park, with waterslides, Jacuzzi, lazy river and covered pool. Les Genêts is also just half a mile from Merlin Plage, with its thrilling water park, safe sandy beach and choice of restaurants. There’s a distinctly French feeling to this parc and if you’re camping here, expect more of an open, sand-based pitch, rather than grass.

The park itself was lovely nice pool, bar etc. However our accommodation was appalling,

- First night it was apparent the main double bed was broken, the slats weren't big enough and just collapsed when we even sat on it. When we told our euro camp rep the following day he said he'd look at it the following day i.e. After another night in the broken bed. We had to argue and tell him this was completely unacceptable
- the fan was dirty and if turned on made the caravan smell of curry
- the BBQ gas canister was empty and hadn't been checked so when we wanted a BBQ we couldn't have one
- the courier himself was rude, unhelpful and argumentative. Out a real downer on our holiday.

We had a lovely holiday staying at Les Genets. We would of like to see the caravans have duvets and not blankets.The blankets were not clean and the pillows could do with changing.The evening entertainment was all in French so couldn't understand anything but we weren't there for the entertainment more for family time. All in all we had good time the swimming pool was really good for the kids, we would go back again. A great day out that made our holiday was the explora parc well worth the money and spent all day there.
