Why stay here ...

Situated in a pine forest near to Andalusia’s beautiful sandy beaches on the famous ‘Coast of Light’, Roche is close to Conil la Frontera, a much-loved destination for UK campers especially in Winter. Its rural location makes it tranquil in low season, but it livens up in summer when a range of facilities and evening entertainment is available.

The pitches are grassy and well-kept, amenities include a large pool and tennis courts.The bar and restaurant serve as the on-site hub of activity, with happy hours and occasional celebrations for local festivals, especially the Romería of San Sebastián held on the 20th January. Games are organised for children in high season, and the nearby town and beaches are quickly and easily accessible by a network of cycle paths running through the pine forest.

The site is well-placed for visits to the ancient town of Cádiz. Its winding streets are dotted with seafood restaurants and pastel coloured buildings, and it has a wonderfully laid-back feel. Jerez, famous for its sherry production, is also within driving distance.

Very disappointed.

After travelling here on the bases of this site appearing in the C&MH club website to say its disappointing is the only word I can use. There is lots of noise from dogs barking constantly and the Electric at 10amps was constantly being tripped and it was obvious that the long termers had household electrical appliances and unfortunately however hard the owners tried these people still used them, the longtermers were also very hostile to us and tried to blame us for the electrical problems even though I only had the fridge on and the owner checked my ampage. The toilets and showers were clean and tidy but no hand washing or driers in the toilets and the pool was closed understably at this time of year. The staff were helpful but a lack of information on arrival.if you have a MH then a car hire is essential to visit the area, no local ammenties within walking distance. There are far better sites along the coast towards Tarfia. Sorry camping Roache .

Never Ever Again.

The site seems pleasant enough and we enjoyed our first five days, although the facilities are a bit scruffy in places and need repairs. Missing door latches, problems with drains etc. Shop is OK and bar and restaurant too. The site in early September is quiet in the week, but livens up with locals at the weekend. It could be very pleasant. Pitches can be small, but members are supposed to get double pitches. We did on the first five nights on 212 and 213 but then had to move to a small single pitch only on 212 so 213 could be irrigated. That is why pitches are green and grassy, but at a price. Irrigation is by grey sewage water and we had to move our equipment to a single small pitch to stop it being wet with disgusting, evil smelling grey sewage water which sprayed by our unit all night. Wind blew it onto the pitch we occupied. The smell was nauseating and we could not sit outside. I shudder to think what bugs were in the water. We would never recommend anyone to stay here as pitch irrigation is clearly more important than guests comfort and hygiene. We shall never return. ABSOLUTELY DREADFUL.

Not For us Unfortunately

We arrived on New Years Day having booked through the club to find the reception locked up. We found a Spanish speaking chap who spoke no English and said “hoy cerado”, in other words today we are shut. Fortunately my Spanish is good enough to explain we had a reservation so he let us in on the promise we would go to reception at 8.30 manana. To be fair he was friendly enough and the facilities were decent. The toilets and showers were clean and the hot water plentiful. The site claims “a network of cycle paths running through the forest”. We couldn’t find any that weren’t on private land. We asked the next day when the receptionist arrived but she also spoke no English and perhaps my Spanish isn’t good enough to understand. The beach is an hour away walking briskly. We are Motorhomers with dogs looking for good walks and eating places/bars within walking distance and the site just didn’t suit us. For others looking for a different experience it would be fine.

Roche Never Changes Thank Goodness

It is 2 years since we stayed at Roche but it has not changed. Friendly helpful staff, nice big pool, sanitary facilities good and clean, nice restaurant and useful shop. The town of Conil de la Frontera and its beaches are well worth the journey down to the south coast.
