Second time and just as good

The title says it all - we first stayed in 2016 and returned for a month in 2018 (March and April). The site was a little scruffy around the edges but I think this was due to the very we and windy weather they had had in February and early March - with we were told rain for 20 days. The site has matured since our last visit but still offers an excellent product. The beach is at the bottom of the site, and the bar and restaurant is far better this year than 2 years ago - a new Chef if seems. This site still would be in our top 5 of all Europe and we have visited many.

Terrific Site in Great Location

We tried to book for three nights from the 30th December but only two were available even booking months ahead but having visited we can see why. It has a fabulous beach front location and is only a few miles from Gibraltar that we wanted to visit. Some of the pitches are tight to manoeuvre into and modest in size but once parked up the space is adequate. We note previous comments questioning some of the cleanliness but our experience was good. There are grown up showers where the water doesn’t turn off every 15 seconds which are also really spacious. The on site restaurant is ok but there is much better if you take the twenty minute walk into the harbour at Manilva. We are definitely planning to book for a slightly longer stay next winter.

Good for a week

We have stayed here twice now, once 30 days in the winter but more recently 18 days. The reception is more than adequate with nice friendly staff to greet you. The site is clean and tidy with a lady continually cleaning the toilet and shower areas which were in first class repair. Found no problem with the chemical waste disposal which have been altered for the better since our last visit. The bar and restaurant are both above average for a campsite and there was a quiz night on Mondays which was quite competitive but not really well supported by the campers, more by outsiders. The pitches are quite large for Spain but watching some of the motor home drivers trying to manoeuvre is a bit of a pantomime. We would definitely recommend this site and would happily come again if we were ever in the area.

A bit of a mix

I suspect this is a bit of a marmite site! In a smallish motorhome we found the pitch size and access more than adequate but I suspect inconsiderate parking by some long stay residents may have affected some. There is plenty of flat walking in both directions from the site and the port is picturesque. However although we expect to see the Brits in Spain at this time of year we felt this area was swamped with menus in English and sports bars all over - not Spain at all. Bar staff were great but sometimes asked to do too much! My main problem is with the cleanliness of the site and I am surprised no one else has expressed concerns. The facilities are superficially amazing but not everything works properly, some drain covers were missing or left lying about, showers flooded rather than drained and the same clumps of hair were there for longer than one day. The ramp down to the showers was never swept and rubbish sat there. However my most serious concern is the appalling design of the chemical toilet. I was only brave enough to use it twice but on both occasions the long trough had human faeces sitting in it, open to the elements, because it doesn't drain. A really serious health hazard. We won't be using this expensive site again

An excellent site well located right on the beach.

Excellent facilities on this modern site. Yes I agree some pitches are a bit tight. We were unlucky that we had little choice and having declined our first very shady pitch all we could get was one right next to the busy N340. Only other criticism would be the location of the chemi loo right by the entrance - a long walk- must get some wheels! Good entertainment in the bar and very friendly staff. A fifteen minute walk to the restaurants and bars at the marina. Handily placed for a bus to La Linea for Gibraltar. We will return next year.
