Nice location on the beach!(hence 3 stars).......But....The reception was staffed by one person, which is totally inadequate on a full camp site. Due to this the reception person appeared to be on the telephone most of the time and so were very slow in dealing with even the most trivial of queries, like booking in. On arrival (booked through the Caravan Club - listed site) we were instructed to go and find our own pitch and could park up if it was free. The single member of staff was busy sorting out another issue (mostly on the telephone). So much for a welcome. The site is well laid out, next to a quality beach and at the time of visit in February, was full. The famed restaurant was closed for the full week that we were there and the beach side bar did not appear to exist (or had been washed away). These two facilities are major selling points made by the CC. The shower/toilet blocks are tired and although they were cleaned extremely well, because of the age, appeared to be of questionable cleanliness. For example the block nearest to our pitch did not have any paper in the roller dispenser in the gents, for over 36 hours. The shower cubicles are so small that some stouter campers took to using the disabled shower room (more space) meaning that this facility was always under pressure and not available for the purpose for which it was required. The showers when you turned them on totally filled the small cubicle up to the door. Great if you like the first 30 seconds of your shower as cold water! Security is non existent as the site is totally open to a public beach and there are no control measures at the entrance. There is no CCTV anywhere on site. We were targetted by 5 Spanish youths on bikes, who tried to rob us on our pitch. It was only the fact that my wife and I realised what was going on that I prevented a sneak in theft from my motorhome. I immediately reported the matter to the single receptionist (engaged on the telephone), who the youths had just ridden passed, and she had seen nothing (busy on the telephone). The receptionist appeared shocked and surprised (once she had put the phone down), but no follow-up was made by staff (only one working and on the telephone) with me later. I do not see what the attraction is here, there are much nicer and safer and cheaper sites in Spain. Would I use this site again... er, no!
We've been four times now and will go back. The site is right next to a wonderful beach, where dogs are tolerated. All the facilities are good but the new shower/toilet block is excellent. Reception is very helpful and they speak excellent English.
They have a lovely pool for chilling round and also a hairdresser and therapist. We both had our hair cut there and were very pleased. I've had a couple of hot stone massages which were divine. We really enjoyed sitting up in the bar/restaurant, overlooking the beach and marina and enjoying an afternoon drink. The food in the restaurant is only average. If you want a better meal you have a choice of restaurants in Oliva or right next door to the site is Casa Juanmi a real gem, where you can get great food. You do need to book.
We really enjoyed a walk or a leisurely cycle up to the restaurant in the marina. There is a barrier in place but it's fine to take the walk through and carry on up to the restaurant. This place is very Spanish but the food is good. We also liked coming here for a morning coffee. You sit next to their pool, overlooking the sea. Bliss.
There is a small supermarket on site but this is just for basics. There are plenty of shops in Oliva, including a new Lidl and a Mercadona. Market day is Friday and is definitely worth a visit. It's not a tourist market although gifts etc., are on sale. Many of the stalls have an excellent choice of fresh fruit, salads and vegetables. There is also a fixed market, open daily, which sells fish and meat. The square in Oliva is a great place to sit with the locals and enjoy a morning coffee or a freshly squeezed orange juice. If you cycle the opposite way from Oliva, and follow the direction of the beach, there are bars and cafes to choose from and every time we go, we find somewhere new. As my title says, this is our favourite site in Spain.
