Shanty Town

We were meant to stay 6 nights here but we lasted one. We are fairly traditional caravaners who like a decent pitch, clean facilities and to be close to the beach/town. To be fair this does have all that and if you are looking for somewhere where you have everything on site, and you do not wish to move for the duration of your stay, then this could be the place for you. The site facilities are all in the centre of the site going down in a line one after the other and the pitches are in sections on each side. This site is massive and walking from reception to the beachfront is close to a mile. The reception and shop are at the top, the pool and bar in the middle followed by the football pitch and then finally the restaurant and beach. In between these sections are 2 maybe 3 big car parks - there are literally vehicles everywhere! The pitches come in 2 size and the bigger 100m are in the front sections closest to the beach, but do not expect to be in the front line or indeed to have a sea view from your pitch. As previous reviews said the white gravel and hedges provide privacy, but you are going to be looking over permanent plots which range from static caravans to metal huts to park homes in all stages of cleanliness and use. Some owners have even created 2 floors and have sun terraces. The smaller pitches back away from the beach but are not so close to these array of park homes. The beach looks lovely and tropical with palm trees but you are on a salt lake so you can walk out for miles up to your knees and it gets no deeper and the water is muddy so it is not ideal for swimming. Lots of water sports on offer but we did not try. The bar/restaurant was nice and we listened to a good solo singer perform which was pleasant, but the flies were horrendous and constantly landing on you or your food. We left the restaurant at 11.30pm and went back to our caravan and were kept awake until 2am by lots of screaming kids still playing football. Then in the permanent caravan pitch behind us their dog was barking at anything that moved and then opposite us in the one of the huts 2 men sat outside and talked until 4.30am. It was the night from hell. The next day we went up to reception and said we were moving on very early they asked no questions and gave me a refund without being prompted. It’s big, busy and noisy. It did not feel like a campsite.
