Potentially a very good site. However the facilities are rather poor. Toilet/shower blocks are in significant need of renovation/modernisation. Showers do not work properly [the press button to activate the water need to be pressed continiously] which is not easy unless you are a contortionist! No seats on WC's! The 'First Class' rating is a joke - Caravan Club please note!

Response from Despenaperros:
In response to your email below I would like to respond to the different observations that have been made by this client which require a response:
1)All of the showers heads have been changed
2)The toilets are not covered for hygiene purposes because they are a source of bacteria.

Coming from Wales we love hills and valleys and we were so pleased to arrive in Despenaperros (Plunging Dogs) National Park. The town of Santa Elena was very quiet and so was the site, although there seemed to be some sort of lorry park whose access road went past the edge, but the noise was only in the mornings and late afternoon. Very few other campers, which was fine with us, there were permanent caravans with awnings etc. in need of tidying up, which made some parts of the site look scruffy. Walks from the site very nice, either into the park or into town, good restaurants and a couple of shops (avoid siesta!). Very good value for money
