Absolutely Fantastic, resort through to service
Just got back from and amazing stay with my mum and 3 little ones (6,5,2)when.we got there at.the very speedy efficient check in found we'd been upgraded from a 2 bed standard apartment to a 3 bed gold and it was fantastic, little touches were lovely, included a 'room service' where bins were emptied and beds refreshed daily. We paid to go half board which worked out cheaper and easier for us and it was well worth doing, food was spot on and certainly took the chore out of the holiday.
The resort, entertainment and staff were excellent, always smiling and happy to help and the kids loved the interaction they received.
It's the best family holiday I've had with my little ones (so much so we've already booked a week next year ;)) Not once did I hear "I'm bored" which shows for any knowing parent that the kids thought the same, can't rate them highly enough :D xx xx
Best time ever!
Stayed for 3 nights with my partner and 2 kids aged 10 and 8. Booked half board and one of the rooms close to everything.
We had done Pontins in February and really didn't like it so we weren't expecting much from this.
However, we were very pleasantly surprised with Butlins.
The rooms were clean and had bedding provided.
The food was fantastic AND had plenty of healthy options and the entertainment was amazing.
Every single one of us had a great stay. So much so, we can't wait to come back again!
Amazing place,lots for the kids to do
A great place to holiday lots of things for the kids to, clean,friendly and great places to eat. I recommend watching the wrestling very entertaining.

amazing break away
Absolutely brilliant tons to do for all the family. My daughter absolutely loved every minute
Fantastic holiday at Butlins, Skegness! 3 year old was in amazement the whole week!
3 year old absolutely loved it, her mummy and nanna did too! Will be going again in 2016. Fab holiday opportunity from The Sun.
1st timers to Sun holidays, but definitely not the last
Never having done the Sun holidays before and never having visited a Butlins before either I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect or how it would work, but when myself, my wife and our two boys aged 5 and 7 rocked up at Butlins Skegness last half term holiday 2015 we were made to feel welcome straight away with an unexpected upgrade to our accommodation! The holiday went from great to brilliant after this as we saw what the place had to offer. The Skyline Dome was amazing and I could not believe the variety and high quality of the entertainment on offer. There was enough to keep you active and entertained all day round if you wanted it and the staff were so friendly and helpful. And the pool, well it was far more than that, the water slides and splash park were fantastic. I loved it, never mind my two lads. My wife was very impressed with the restaurants and the wide variety of food available. The restaurants were contemporary, clean and stylish. My wife commented on how well they catered for the children, even fussy eaters like ours! Excellent food at excellent prices. Finally, the location of our holiday, being right on the beach, was perfect and meant that if you did want to build sand castles on the beach or paddle in the sea it was so easy and convenient to do. Overall I cannot fault this holiday, and this is proven by the fact that we immediately wanted to do the Sun holidays again the following year, it’s such a good value for money deal. I’ve collected all the tokens and booked another holiday today without hesitation.
Great Tots Break
Although I've stayed at Butlins several times before I have stayed gold in recent years due to a bad experience in standard accommodation some time ago. Because of this bad experience I decided to upgrade from Standard to Silver. Be aware it's not possible to upgrade from Standard to Gold with the Sun promotion. The silver accommodation was a little disappointing. It's not as clean as gold and was a little rough around the edges. My 3 year old granddaughter was unaware so this didn't affect the holiday at all.
The resort was a lot less busy than during the school holidays which was great. The redcoats had more time for her, it was easier to keep an on her in front of the main stage and we didn't have to queue anywhere (including for the characters). She loved the entertainment even though it was the same as August. Meeting Angelina Ballerina, Scooby Doo, Mike the Knight and Evie made her holiday. Unfortunately I had to buy the photographs too! The tribute bands for Little Mix and Olly Murs were both great.
Previously I'd taken the meal options (can recommend the Yacht Club) but decided to cook breakfast in the apartment and eat out during the day and evening to keep costs down. Rock and Sole was fine, the children's meal deal option during the day at the coffee shop was good value and Ludo's Italian was lovely. The Firehouse was disappointing - both the meal and the service.
All in all a great value holiday. Thanks!
way to go butlins
Fantastic camp,lots to do,great food,friendly redcoats always something for the kids to do rain or shine
