      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      recommend to all young people looking for a uk adventure

      Although i worked for Butlins at Skegness back in 1989, i have never forgotten the experience, yes you work hard but by heck you have lots of social life on your time off. The money isnt too great but as in another review its your money as you have food and accomadation supplied for you I met some bands albiet country and western, some commedians, the one that sticks out is Brian Connelly I would reccomend any young person to do a minimum of a season there and i do recomend it to young people i meet and who want something short term and different to do. i wouldve been back year after year but decided to start a family and my daughter was born the year after {incedentially i met my husband there now divorced after 12 years) Disadvantages in my time were the acommadation very basic so small we called them sheds, the security were heavy handed at times and some rules were a bit 'strict' but you put up with it cos it was so much friends. I and my ex husband tell our kids about our adventure working at Butlins, my eldest son wants to go and work there when is old enough, we wont stop him Although i worked there years ago i hope this review is useful

        we have just returned from a week at the club mac complex in alcudia, we were given jupiter as our hotel on the coach from the airport. Weather fantastic This is quite a big complex with 3 hotels, you can use any of the 3 hotels facilities other than lunch when only jupiter restaurant is open and marte for supper. Food absolutely fine long as you make sure you look at labels above some of the food, we had a shock when we thought squid was onion rings as did a lot of people. Snack bars were fine althogh i couldve really enjoyed a jacket potato sometimes Rooms are very basic but enough for what you need although one of my 'bug bears' are that their are only 2 queens beds so kids have to sleep together, 2 camp beds wouldve been better Swimming pools are brilliant and outside areas are power hosed everynight so are clean, kids stuff are good ie playground, train, boating lake etc and evening entertainment not too bad The only real bad thing i can complain about is the lifts are diabolical not so much kids playing with them but call the lift on level 8 and you can still be waiting 10 mins later For anyone that is going this year you should enjoy it long as you remember it is a family complex so there are plenty of kids running around, if you dont like that type of holiday this complex aint for you
