What a great location to spend a break, we stayed in a premium cottage opposite an inlet very close to the main lake, it was idylic. Although not an original Centre Parc, it was accuired from Gran Dorado for a three star it was ideal, it was peaceful, picturesque and a bargain.We paid £640 for two adults & a 15 year old for 4 nights in a premium cottage with flights & car hire, compared to the cheapest one we could find in the UK which was windfell in te lakes for £1100 for a comfort cottage it was a no brainer. The pool and facilities were not as good as the original centre parcs and we have visited 4 in Holland, it had all round wifi which is great for teenager's, it is the nicest and most picturesque. There were a couple of down sides which were a slight inconvenience but not enough to spoil the holiday. The cottage had ants both inside and on the patio and although they tried to deal with it they still came. They are upgrading the main complex inside around the restaurants and reception area and had builders in during the day, I feel this work could have been done during the night or after hours. The supermarket in the centre was very good and same price as those outside which is unusual for a centre parcs.
We visited the local town of Emmen which had a wide variety of shops and eating places and also visited a transit concentration camp which housed Jewish people before been sent to there death at auswitz and Belsan, the museum was very good and it is a moving insight in to what the poor people suffered, over 102,000 were sent from the camp, it is 27 miles from parc sandur and we'll worth the visit.
The parc is two hours by car from Amsterdam but a nice drive as holland is a very pleasant country to visit. A bonus for us was the weather which was excellent and the tan unexpected. All in all a very enjoyable holiday.
