This is a tricky one as we experienced the site from two perspectives, as a couple and as grandparents when we were joined by our young family. We were greeted warmly and were able to select our own pitch. Most pitches have some shade, are on dusty ground, some have good views. The facilities offered were adequate, the usual bar, restaurant, shop, take away etc but could have been so much better with just a little more flair and co-ordination between what seemed to separately run concessions. For example there is a lovely courtyard but you can't order a meal and a drink from the same venue which mean't that people were sat around eating their pizzas out of boxes accompanied by drinks bought separately, such a wasted opportunity, especially for young families.The restaurant was not very welcoming for children and the staff complained when our grandson dropped chocolate on his chair. But when we returned on our own we had a lovely evening and good meal. The indoor children's pool is ideal for little ones but there is a problem with the new play area as the children were getting static electric shocks from the equipment. The pool complex is good, apart from the paving around the pools which are extremely uncomfortable to walk on, the new equipment is great for children of around seven to ten years old. The local area is beautiful but again perhaps the beaches are not ideal for small children as the sand is very gritty. So to sum up fine for adults, less so for young children and we came away feeling that there was nothing to complain about but it could have been so much better with more attention to detail.
