Loved it!

Not sure if the previous people went to the same site! We went here after our first site Valdequeros and we’re impressed by how tidy and well maintained the pitches were. Lovely palm trees and hedges all clipped. Showers very modern and clean. On every Spanish campsite there is a slight drain smell in the showers! The beach is on the door step. Lovely walks along a path that goes both ways out of the campsite gate. We had a walk to the port. Supermarket (Eroski) just a short walk away. Beach is not as nice as further down south. Black gravel/sand. Staff on site very helpful and friendly. Very good stocked up shop on site, had Lurpak butter, our favourite : ) .In the winter seemed to be mainly British customers. There was some weekend entertainment. Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Disappointed

Very disappointed with this site. Not only did we get charged the premium price by caravan club, when the site itself had reduced their prices. found this site to be poorly maintained. The plots had not been tidied for many months. The showers and toilet area although are cleaned are not maintained and the drains smell badly. Dog excrement was left on the path next to reception and not cleaned away over a few days. Only good thing going for this site is its location. The entertainment is okay, quiz good. Would we return. I certainly don't think so. The chemical toilet facility has certainly not been cleaned and maintenance was poor. No wonder there was a fly infestation....

So much potential - don’t book based on the Photos

First thing - those photos must be from 2011/12 when the camp was first built, all the vegetation is much more grown around the pitches and trees provide the shade, also a lot of long term stayers with full pitch awnings. We are touring so not booking in advance, at reception with two dogs we were advised the price was €37 a night! However it had so many good reviews we wanted to give it a go but I was a bit taken aback so checked online and they had an offer for €18.60 a night. So I stood in the reception and booked two nights on my phone for €36 plus €12 for the dogs (a charge I don’t fully understand as there are absolutely no facilities for dogs, not even complimentary poo bags). So that wasn’t a good first impression as we felt they had tried to rip us off on the price. However, the site has a lovely pool area, direct access to the beach, laundry at a reasonable price and lovely toilets and showers, that with a bit of maintenance would be perfect (shower head need replacing and fixtures are starting to rust). The restaurant is the nicest we have seen on a campsite however the food was possibly the worst we have had since we left the U.K., my lamb skewer was tough and so salty it was inedible - I took it back to the Moho, washed it off and gave it to the dogs and my DH Hd the four cheese tagliatelle But it was totally overwhelmed by the blue cheese that he didn’t finish it. If you do stay take a short walk along the beach to the left - there are a number of excellent restaurants to choose from. On that note, don’t expect golden sands, the beach is more like grey gravel. The pitches are fine and separated by hedging and tree but ours didn’t get a speck of sun, all the plants and trees are much more fully grown than the pictures. There are a lot of long term stayers but they are very friendly but out All in all I’m a bit torn, it had all the ingredients to be a fantastic stay but someHow it just wasn’t.

Summer 2019

This site was recommended to us and we booked a special large pitch. The site is accessible from the main road and the approach creates a good impression, However, the road and pitches are quite tight compared to other Spanish sites. We have a 7.5 metre outfit and found it difficult to access out pitch. The site is a great location directly on the beach, which many bars and restaurants within a short walking distance, Please note that the site is located on the beach. The sea shelves away very quickly and is deep, which makes it unsuitable for families. This site suggests English standards, yet people are allowed to book pitches and park cars on the road, which makes it difficult to access pitches. My recommendations are as follows. 1 The site needs a traffic management plan, which must be enforced. 2 The check in process must be the slowest in the business 3 I would like to see proactive security patrols like some of the other Spanish sites 4 We had visitors for a BBQ and they were charged 5 Euro per person including children for a stay over 1 hour. This is ridiculous as they didn’t use any site facilities. The toilet block is amazing. .

Dec 2018 first time and never again

we were booked in for 5 nights in dec when we arrived we were given our pitch and when we got to it , it was in a corner and in total shade with no chance of getting any sun at all it was,overgrown covered in leaves just a mess. when we looked around all we could see was cloths on lines from what seemed to be permanent caravans . i went to the office and told them we had decided not to stay . we lost our deposit of 50 euros . we booked this site after viewing the photos that the caravan club has put on , these do not reflect this site now and need to be updated
