Why stay here ...

Set in the traditional Spanish town of Benicassim on the Costa del Azahar, this vibrant site has a warm welcome for all visitors all year round. It's a popular destination for winter sun seekers, and offers inviting swimming pools (one covered) surrounded by a terrace for sunbathing and overlooked by an attractive bar and restaurant. Several supermarkets can be found just outside the site and the traditional Spanish town of Benicassim is a ten-minute walk away.

With a strong emphasis on social activities, evening entertainment includes quiz nights, flamenco evenings and games nights. If you are looking to learn Spanish there are language classes available, as well as Spanish cookery classes in which you’ll learn how much some delicious traditional dishes. There are fantastic cycle routes from the campsite, and the lovely Oropesa del Mar cycle route is nearby.

Famous for annually hosting Spain’s top musical festival, Benicassim has one of the most beautiful beaches in the region and some lovely architecture. The modern city of Valencia is within driving distance, while more locally there are plenty of cycling routes to enjoy.

Second visit-good site

Bonterra Resort
This was our second visit to Bonterra and we weren't disappointed. All the trees have become leafy and therefore more shady than last time. Some of the facilities blocks have been upgraded to a high standard. The beach, the Village and Mercadona still within walking distance make it ideal for motorhomers. Expensive site but still cheaper than CMC.

Ideal touring site especially for motorhomes, but....

Bonterra Resort
We've stayed at Bonterra a number of times. Ordinarily, we find it the ideal site for all the reasons expressed in other reviews especially as we are cycling motorhomers. This year, however, we had the misfortune to coincide with the weekend of a Spanish National Holiday in September when a bloc of pitches adjacent to ours was taken by a number of families as a group. It was raucous until quite late. The many children ran amok. No effort was made to moderate behaviour even though, like us, a number of those affected complained. Our other unwelcome surprise was when, for the first time, we ventured into the swimming pool area to catch the last of the sun. It was 5.30pm and none of the sunbeds was occupied. As, however, all the beds in the sunny part had apparently been reserved for the day, we were allowed only to use two (unreserved) in the shade. Beggars belief. Would we stay at Bonterra again? Yes, for sure - but we'll be more careful about timing and forget about the pool.

Quaint but Quiet

Bonterra Resort
I would agree with everything positive about this site, all facilities are excellent, staff friendly and helpful, lovely swimming pools, ideal for beach and Benicassim but for us it was just too quiet, a lot of shops and restaurants were closed, Sundays especially, and, unless you travel away from Benicassim, by bike, bus, train or car, there isn't a lot to do. If you're looking for a break away from it all then this is ideal but we prefer a bit more going on!

Wonderful well organised campsite

Bonterra Resort
This was a very friendly and efficient campsite. Well looked after and very clean. Lots of facilities and you were allowed to choose your own pitch. Pool was lovely and it had a great restaurant although we didn’t eat there. Short walk from the beach and there is a supermarket opposite the entrance. We only stayed one night but would look to stay longer next time as it had a lovely feel to it.

Winter Suntrap

Bonterra Resort
We stayed at this large site for 9 weeks from early January until 9th March 2019 and had very good weather. There is a tendency during January for ferocious winds, but otherwise it was sunny and dry most of the time. The site is extremely efficiently run and kept immaculately clean. In the newer shower block the showers are like mini wet rooms and there are private cubicles with sink and electric point. All the general sinks have power points too. Facilities for washing dishes and clothes and even dogs (!) are attached to each shower block. There is a laundry room by reception. The site was quiet but would probably be noisy during high season when there are lots of children. The lovely little town of Benicassim is ten minutes walk away and has some lovely restaurants.The beach is also a few minutes walk away. There are frequent buses to Castellon (the next town) from a stop nearby. A supermarket is across the road and a Lidl a few yards further on. There are lots of daily activities run by the site, including use of the gym equipment and classes in Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and general fitness plus bike rides, hiking, Spanish language lessons - all free! Two swimming pools (indoor one is heated) are close to the site restaurant and bar. There are cycling paths all around the area and a dedicated dog walk. Pitch sizes vary and most are surrounded by hedges for privacy. Electricity is an extra charge and is very expensive. Lots of English, Dutch and German people plus a few French. We would definitely stay here again.
