Highly recommend

We have recently returned from a 16 night stay here. The site staff are very friendly, helpful and speak very good English. The site is very well maintained, clean and it is clear the owners take pride in the campsite. The pitches are compact, I recommend you book the larger pitch, which has a water tap, grey water drain and 10 amp hook up. If you have a large van or motorhome, over 7.5 m then book early and make sure you inform them. There are a number of pitches suitable but! The atmosphere of the site is very pleasant and family orientated. There is a very large a clean beach with lifeguards 15 minutes walk from the site. There is a campsite shop but it is very limited in stock, small local supermarkets are close by but the nearest big supermarket is approx 12 miles, however the quality of produce is excellent. If we return to this area, Cantabria, I would definitely return to Oyambre.

Great reception staff.

Our first stopover for one night as we headed into Spain from the Santander ferry in mid September. Due as much to our own error (taking two wrong turnings!) we arrived at the site as the light was going however the young lads on reception were really welcoming even walking over to our pitch and showing us around. Some of the pitches looked quite close and tight on space however the pitch we had for our 7m Motorhome was fine. Washblock facilities a little dated but very clean and hot water in the showers! Before we left in the morning we took the opportunity to take a walk down to the beach via the narrow but quiet road behind the site and obviously then up hill to return! Nothing to steep or strenuous though.

Nice site

I arrived late evening after a delayed ferry crossing but received a nice friendly and helpful welcome. I stayed for a week and enjoyed my time here - helped by some good weather.The site facilities were all good - the pools, gym, bar, toilet block and although I didn't eat in the restaurant I heard good reviews. The towns of Comillas and San Vincente are both close by and worth visiting, with some beautiful countryside around. I would recommend this site - one to return to!

Very good site

Very good site. Not open in November. Don't cross reference with E27 in the 2017 Venture Abroad book they are not the same site! This one closed on 15 Oct for the winter (see acsi) Playa Oyambre they say and sell you is open until 01 Dec right on the beach and a lot of permanents there. Beware.

Great site for a family holiday

We have just returned from a two week stay at caravanning Oyambre. After a couple of initial days of bad weather we were lucky enough to have fabulous sunshine most of the days. We explored local beaches and towns and went up to the Picos de Europa. The campsite has lovely views of the mountains. The bathroom facilities were spotlessly clean and we made use of the basic shop and site restaurant. There is also a bar selling very reasonably priced drinks. A 15 minute walk takes you to the local beach which was great. On the downside some of the pitches are very small and the access was pretty tight. Our caravan is 8m long and with the awning/car there wasn't much room around us! Also bear in mind this a lively site in summer, the children loved the facilities and made friends however beware that there is often loud music at night, not from the campsite itself but from the neighbouring bar up the road. We would return.

Friendly and unpretentious.

We stayed here in our motor home on our way north, we had planned a stopover in the Picos but with very bad weather on the way we came to Oyambre instead - we were really glad we did! It's an unpretentious site with reasonable sized pitches and clean facilities. The weather was too wet for a trip to the nice nearby beach but the nearby small towns were ideal for day trips. We took the bus to Comillas and enjoyed a wander around the town and the wonderful El Capricho house designed by Gaudi, highly recommended. The town square also had plenty of cafes, with great chocolate and churros! We had a meal in the restaurant in the evening and it was one of the best meals we'd had on our long trip, with a very attentive waiter. A really nice campsite to finish our tour of Spain and Portugal.

Beautiful views. Worth a visit!

We stayed for 8 weeks from mid May until mid July 2017. A well run site with extremely helpful owners and staff. We booked & stayed on a fully serviced pitch which had enough room for us to manoeuvre & park up with our CR 5th Wheel. Our pitch was considered a large pitch, flat, but was only just wide enough for the unit, with one slide out and canopy awning. Touring pitches are on 4 tiered levels with many pitches enjoying beautiful countryside views towards Picos de Europa Mountains (on clear days). Some pitches are situated close to restaurant or children’s play area, so as mentioned in previous posts, choose your pitch wisely. Site facilities are very good, clean and well looked after. Prices in the bar and restaurant were great value and food was excellent. Easy access to a fantastic beach which is within easy walking distance. Nine hole golf course very close – reasonable tariff. Both neighbouring towns, Comillas and San Vincente de la Barquera provide good shopping, banking facilities etc. We enjoyed our long stay during which we experienced the unpredictable weather that this very green, lush, beautiful part of Spain offers. We will definitely return in the future if needing a stopover before/after using Santander ferry.

Choose your pitch carefully

​We stayed here in mid July 2017 as a final site following our tour of France before catching the Santander Ferry (40 miles away). The pitches are on the small side and are 'crammed in' and most of them are not level. We were allocated a pitch close to the 5 a side football area - complete with the noise that one would expect from this. I wonder if the club are aware of the standard of pitches being allocated to it members. The site was very busy with many families on site. It is a shame that none of the parents seem to be interested in what their offspring were getting up to. Notwithstanding this, there was a friendly atmosphere around the camp. Can't fault the facilities. Clean and plenty of hot water. I booked the site via the Caravan Club and was told that the minimum stay was 3 nights. I learnt from the proprietor that if I had booked direct then I could have stayed for one night. The site's only saving grace is that you can walk (15 minutes) to a very nice beach and there are some very nice views of the countryside as you do so.

Best views

We chose this site as the first stop on our 8 week tour and it was an excellent choice. Very easy to find from Santander port, which is always a bonus! Great site with amazing views of the Picos de Europa mountain range from your pitch. Bar and restaurant excellent. The food was lovely and amazing value. The toilet block was very traditionally Spanish and exceptionally clean at all times. We would definitely return to this lovely site.

Excellent site

The facilities at this beautifully maintained site are excellent. It is ideally positioned 45 minutes from Santander in beautiful countryside with views of the Picos mountains and a short walk from a fabulous beach. Francis and his staff are superb - and the restaurant on the site serves an excellent choice and quality of food. We will definitely be back next year.
