Proudly sat on the beautiful North Wales coast on the outskirts of Prestatyn, Lyons Robin Hood offers something for everyone wanting to enjoy the delights of a traditional seaside break away.
There’s plenty to keep all age groups entertained... it’s fun from the moment you arrive! With the seashore just a few minutes away and fun-packed entertainment day and night.
There are outdoor adventure play areas with climbing frames and basketball courts, as well as an indoor soft play area for the little people. You could visit the Splash Zone with three indoor pools, water jet characters, or for those that like to take things at a slower pace, visit the jacuzzi where you can sit and be massaged by the gentle water jets.
If you’re not such a water baby you can still enjoy watching the rest of your family with a refreshing drink at Hetty’s Poolside Bar. For the up and coming ‘Tiger Woods’ in the family there is an 18-hole golf course sitting between the park and the Blue Flag Beach. After all that activity you’re bound to be hungry - the Sports Bar and Restaurant is the perfect place to re-energise yourself ready for the competition and evening’s entertainment.
