Why stay here ...
This large site is set on the stunning Costa de Cantabria, a short walk from the town of Noja. Close to the ports of Santander and Bilbao, it's ideal for first-time visitors to Spain. Equipped with high-quality facilities, there's plenty for families in high season, including organised entertainment, music events, a pool (bathing caps necessary) and sports.
There’s a buzzing, multinational feel onsite, and the friendly staff are happy to provide information about the local area. Pitches, although fairly small, are arranged to offer some privacy and are well shaded from the summer sun.
There's direct access to one of the best beaches in the region, where you can swim, surf and rock pool and enjoy coastal walks. There’s also a nature park within the site boundary, which overlooks an area of protected land where migratory birds overwinter. Santander is a lively city with good shopping and some interesting attractions.

We chose this site as it was part of the Caravan club and are used to their standards and this site falls far below them. The check in process is ridiculous (considering the size of the site) you go and find a space on foot and leave the caravan outside, you have to choose a few sites as their are numerous other people wandering the site choosing possibly the same numbers (the site is huge!). the pitches are very small & very close together so you have no privacy at all. Considering how the caravan club usually have the sites and specified distances between the caravans this is nothing like that. There are alot of permanent very noisy residents who have very little respect for any one else, whether that's whilst you are walking around the site or when they are screaming & yelling at 11.30pm. Even though we were a couple with no children I would find it hard to believe that a family would find this acceptable. The only good point is it proximity to the beach but I would rather have a nicer site and a drive to a beach than that. We even left earlier than the days we had booked.
