Outstanding site

Playa Brava
Although based next to a lovely beach and we were pitched on a very sandy site Playa Brava was extremely clean. The toilets and shower blocks were plentiful rarely had to wait to use any facility and they were constantly being cleaned as were all the other facilities in the camp including the water points & roadways. At least twice a day the roadways were damped to keep the dust down. The pool & private beach offered swimming & relaxing for all members of the family and for younger children there were plenty of other activities organised for them. Th supermarket was extensive & inexpensive and saved having to travel. It was used by the locals which ensured it was competitive. Staff & visitors were all extremely helpful & friendly. We had a Master L pitch which had electricity, water & waste and large. A great holiday and a site we would recommend.
