Why stay here ...

Situated in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, an unspoiled natural paradise, this site is a relaxing place to stay in low season, becoming livelier in the summer. There’s a wealth of facilities including an outdoor pool, multi-sports court and entertainment programme.

There’s a focus on wellbeing for adults, with a gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and massage treatments available at the wellness centre. The Oasis Restaurant overlooks the pool and offers guests the opportunity to try traditional Spanish cuisine or opt for a pizzeria menu.

Keen walkers will enjoy the trails that run through the National Park, while sun seekers will find several beaches within 10km of the site, the nearest being Playa del Arco. Almeria, with its famous Moorish fortress, the Alcazaba, and cave quarter, is a 40-minute drive.

Great location - poor management of facilities

This site is in a National park called Cabo de Gata... we visited in August and was very very hot!! All pitches have overhead nets for shade but you need zircon here in the summer... The site would have been lovely apart from the hideous stench of sewage. It did;t affect our pitch but you could;t use the pool or bar/bistro

Ok once on site.

Five nights here end of Dec 16; the drive to it is very uninspiring, passing the usual acres of poly tunnels interspersed with scrubland, or national park, depending on your nationality. You need to be stout of foot if you like walking, or have a capable bike to explore. Nothing very stimulating to seeing the immediate area, but San Jose 10 mins in a car, or Almeria 50 mins. Close to small typical beach of course dark sand/pebbles. Reception staff very good, small shop - no camping supplies. Fresh bread. Fixed rice menu in bar/restaurant good value. Facilities quite good and clean, no single wash cubicles. Site electric points good 3 pin. And taps on each pitch BUT DON'T USE THESE TAPS FOR DRINKING, or you will be spending time in the facilities. Use specified taps around the site for drinking water fills. Good atmosphere on site with mix of nationalities. Nice backdrop with hills and mountains but couldn't be described as anything more. Neighbour fused his roof mounted sat dish on overhead netting over each pitch. Mostly level pitches with fine gravel all over. We would use it again in winter.

Strange site

After passing approximately 15 miles of Polytunnels to our left whilst travelling West on the A-7 we found the site the other side of the of this spectacle. Apparently this is where we get all our tomates from. As stated in the site brief its within a very large National Park. Typical of area though it is predominately sandy hilly Scrub land which can be a little off putting. However we only used it for an overnight stop in the closed season and saw little of the area. The site pitches vary in size but all are reasonably sized and have black netting covers to protect from the sun. The shower block was good but work was ongoing at the time of visit to improve them. The shop and restuarant were open, even though it was late January. I would probably go again despite the 12 mile drive from the motorway.
