Good provided you are OK with BIG BIG Sites

We have stayed three times here now - principally because it is a good one night stop over going to and from the South of Spain. The food at the restaurant was not good - very plastic and lacking in flavour. Pitches level and the BBC TV link was appreciated - however it only worked with the cable direct into the TV and not via the caravan aerial booster. Access is easy even for big units. However with over 1200 pitches you have to like BIG sites to be comfortable, We did not but would return due to its convenient location. Bags to do and see in Alicante

Quality

So, Previous reviewers have mentioned what's on offer here so I'll talk about my time here. As a club warden I get to overwinter in the sun. I chose to come here in 2011 and have basically never looked back. From the easy access off the ap7, the ample check in parking to the friendly professional reception staff. That has not changed in the 7 winters we've had here. The site itself is massive with around 1200 pitches in neat rows, basically a grid system. There are 5 toilet blocks that are cleaned regularly through the day, the water pressure is immense and always hot. There is a winter rally held at the bottom of the site by the camping and caravanning club from October to May, that gets busy. After touring Portugal and Spain for the last 7 years we've decided we love the feel of this site and have bought a seasonal pitch for our RV. Come give it a try, it has a lot to offer JK

big site

When we arrived my OH was absolutely horrified having just come from a small peaceful site in the Sierra Navada - we arrived on a sunday. Booking in took a while as there was a queue. There is a large reception, social plazza, pool, spar etc. etc. We were allocated our pitch, which after 1 hour didnt suit us, so reception gave us a choice of 2 others. The pitches are back to back, north/south, so half the pitches do not get morning/evening sun if you have a unit behind you which is positioned across the pitch so to speak. Very anti social, the Spanish don't do it. I think people that do this should pay for 2 pitches. I would have given top marks for facilities, but the dish washing is open air and on most days a keen wind was blowing through. The AP7 motorway gets noticeable at night, especially if the wind is in the wrong direction. This is a BIG site with impressive facilities, very good location for the local nature reserves and historic towns. I enjoyed late afternoon bird watching on El Hondo reserve. The air quality during our month stay was very poor. This is obviously out of the control of the site. It may have been unusual but there were many fires burning rubbish locally. The weather conditions during our stay may have contributed to this. The final niggle is that you have to book the indoor pool 24 hours in advance. On balance we enjoyed our stay but will try and use smaller sites in the future.

Winter Break

As commented on before a nice site until the Spanish arrive at weekends with absolutely no road sense. It's amazing not many children have been injured! Restaurant is only open at weekends unless there is a special function on which is a shame because rhe surroundings and food can be good.Bar meals are very simple. Not all toilet blocks were open when we arrived and due to the size of the campsite can get a fair hike to the nearest one particularly in the rain or at night. Loved the WiFi 25 euros a month that worked well and water and electricity on pitch as well as TV . The campsite is very flat and exposed which can also be a problem in strong winds. The campsites facilities were always spotlessly clean.

Great site, shame about the sunbeds

We spent a week in October here and loved the site. It can be noisy at weekends when the Spanish families descend but it was certainly quieter in the week and the added bonus was that the outdoor pool was open despite literature suggesting it closes in September. The facilities are excellent and very clean although there is the usual drainage smell from the shower gullies at certain times of the day. I think it is better suited to a caravan than motorhome as it is a little isolated if all you have is a bike. On saying that, there are good cycling routes and the nature reserve was well worth a visit and that's just down the road. Staff were all friendly and helpful, even for happy hour! The animation team worked hard and the sports facilities are excellent. Our only real grievance was the sunbeds by the outside pool, and this also applies to the sister site at Guardamar. They are covered in white waterproof fabric but are going mouldy so they don't look very attractive and they aren't very comfortable. For a 5 star resort we would expect better. Other than that, we thought it was excellent and we will certainly go again.
