Summer Testimonials 2017

Our summer season is fast approaching so it's the perfect time to look back at what some of our clients had to say about their holidays with us in summer 2017. Here are some of our favourites...

Our Children's Programmes

Adventure Academy - 12 years +

Children in the PB Adventure Academy enjoy non-stop action with awesome activities like surfing, scuba diving, paintball, kayaking and inflatable obstacle courses, and that’s just the start!

"My boys raved about Adventure Academy and especially enjoyed the water sports. I only wish we could have stayed longer."

“All three kids loved their time in the club. Evie particularly enjoyed all the action in the Adventure Academy, we would 100% recommend."

By the end of the holiday, new friendships have inevitably been formed and unforgettable memories made.

 "I can't fault the children's programme one bit. Adventure Academy was perfect for my son and he made so many of friends during the week."

 Our PB Adventure Academy staff are seen by the children as fun-loving responsible older siblings rather than disciplined organisers, which gives children the freedom to enjoy their holiday to the full in a safe environment. 

“The outstanding Powder Byrne team went above and beyond.  The week exceeded our expectations on every front.”


TheZone - 9 to 12 years

The children in TheZone have days jam-packed with awesome new experiences, like surfing, sailing, inflatable obstacle courses and stand-up paddle boarding, all enjoyed with their newfound friends.

"We really appreciated the fact that the kids could enjoy all the non-stop action of TheZone without the need for us to run around with them ourselves. We were able to really relax while they had a blast." 

Our fantastic staff take great care of the children so parents can really relax and enjoy some much-deserved downtime.

“All the staff have a real ‘can do' attitude, combined with lots of energy and enthusiasm for the children and the result was a really fantastic week for us all."

Our aim is to ensure our clients enjoy a very happy family holiday all round.

"I will definitely recommend TheZone to other families. The kids came back with huge smiles on their faces at the end of each day."


Scallywags - 4 to 8 years

The Scallywags embark on plenty of active fun like tennis lessons with our LTA-accredited coach, trips to Kidzania or the aquarium and even the Scally Olympics on the last day, which is always a huge hit.

 "My children loved the sports aspect of Scallywags and its great that the PB staff are so active with them."

 Our children’s programmes are now even more flexible with the ability to dip in out of them to find the right balance for each family. Persuading the kids to miss a day of Scallywag fun may be the only tricky part… 

“PB staff provided excellent, first class service as always. My son never wanted to leave and loved all the activities."


Creche - 2 months to 3 years

It’s quite something entrusting someone with the care of your precious bundle but it’s so important for each member of the family to get the downtime they deserve. Our pb crèche staff are hand-picked and expertly trained meaning they’re more than capable of keeping little ones perfectly contented. 

“A wonderful programme! We felt completely at ease leaving Freddie in such capable hands."

“Such an incredible PB team, thank you for the amazing holiday. We were able to relax and venture out for the day knowing that Thomas was well looked after."

Children are stimulated and entertained with activities like biscuit decorating, swimming, arts and crafts, beach games, pizza making and lots more, with a healthy and tasty supervised lunch and nap time daily. 

“The staff were amazing with Poppy. She was so contented and happy and we loved the freedom to enjoy the resort. It felt like honeymoon take two." 

"Joe had a permanent smile on his face in the crèche. Thank you, Powder Byrne."
