    I sent mine off 3 weeks ago I think it was on the second lot that was in the sun and it's for April and may only and still not received it back.

    I will need to book the time off work so just wondering how long they take? They haven't cashed the cheque either. X

    Just contacted them and they haven't received it! So upset this was our only chance of a family holiday! Apparently there's nothing they can do. :(

    Also Ive had reasonable holidays through Haven and Hoseasons as well for short breaks.

    Im really sorry it has turned out like that for you weve been on a few Sun hols they were quite good,sometimes we have upgraded and paid more and could have booked direct round about the same price.:D

    How disappointing. I've had sun holidays & they are brill, don't let this put you off give them a try again when they are next out.

    My cheap holidays are flights with easyjet & accomodation through owners direct. I've never tried ebay but will do in future it sounds amazing value for money.

    Thanks bb I tried but they are saying 300 to 500 pounds for a 4 night thing.

    Had a look at butlins which I hate with a passion but they have a Thomas the tank engine thing on term time and self catering that's 168 for 4 nights which is alot more than 38 pounds but affordable. So will be looking into that. X

    I was ging to say that actually once all the service charges and entertainment passes are paid, it is often cheaper to book direct during term time, off peak. I ahve to go school hols, due to job, and Sun Holidays are the only way to go at that time, but i think you can get a better deal direct in term time. Try Park Resorts, they are often a cheap one

    Well you could turn this into a positive, if they have your cheque you have the opportunity of a cheap holiday:D Which is better than you thought you had yesterday.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Blimey, Skeggy is a long way to come for you!!!

    It's okay, if you get the weather. If it's the Haven park then there's plenty to keep the kids occupied I'm sure. They've spent a bit on the beach area (if i remember correctly).

    It's cheap and a holiday though!
