Camping Castillo de Banos is situated on a narrow coastal strip with mountains to its back and the Med to its front. It has a small beach which unless cleaned up by environmentally aware campers, contains the rubbish discarded by fishermen, locals and tourists alike. All around it is surrounded by and butted up to large plastic polytunnels, which are themselves surrounded by discarded vegetables and general refuse/detritus. The ramblas are a disgrace.

Within walking distance there are two bar/restaurants and one small convenience store. Further away, but still within walking distance is the small village of La Mamola that has a bank, a pharmacy and a few more bar/restaurants. The local restaurants are distinctly lacking in any type of finesse and cannot be recommended at all. The convenience store has a curious line in fresh meat. It all appears to have been soaked in brine prior to sale and therefore is not only 'over plump' but incredibly salty. Beware the frozen fish which is also frozen in brine. You are paying for frozen saline!

The site itself is in dire need of investment and refurbishment. The bar/restaurant on site is dark and dingy with a distinctly dark and dingy clientele, who consist mainly of young males in hoodies who apparently live and work in the myriad of plastic tunnels. Only a small proportion of the washing up sinks, clothes washing sinks and personal washroom sinks have hot water taps. The showers are essentially open to the elements and the doors are old and rotting. Similarly the toilets are old and in dire need of replacement. The cleaning of said toilet/wash blocks takes place 6 days a week by a woman dressed as a slaughterhouse attendant in rubber boots, armed with an industrial hosepipe, with a cigarette permanently dangling from her lips. EVERYTHING is hosed down and that passes for cleaning. The pay for use WiFi was appalling, but whilst we were there they upgraded the server and made it free for all. It's still rubbish if you don't have a pitch within range but at least it's now free.

We managed to get out a few times but to be honest the area has little to commend it. Yes, you can go to the Alhambra, but it's not worth staying in Banos just to go to Granada. Stay in Granada instead. I wish I could say we would stay here again, but I can't. Even for a stopover. I would carry on driving and find something worthy of our money. The whole area has a sense of brooding deprivation and while I'm sorry for their plight, it doesn't mean that tourists should be considered 'fair game'.

Have stayed on this site for past 2 years and going again January 2012. We go on the C+CC rally. Shower and Toilet Facilities are good, and there is a separate shower/toilet for wheelchair users - key available from reception.

There is a bar restaurant on site, as well as shop selling basics, and fresh bread daily. The site has opening directly onto the beach, which is mainly pebble and grey sand. A short walk away is a village shop, and bar/restaurant.

There have been improvements made since our first visit, with roadways tarmacked, drainage to each pitch, and electricity upgrades.

There are a few chalets for rent but it is mainly used by touring units.

There is a weekly market about 5 miles away to the south and the village of La Mamola is about 1 mile north of the site.

If you want a nice quiet break then this is the site to choose.

A fairly big site typical of the area - a grey sand beach right outside the camp entrance - not the nicest looking but typical of the area. The site is well set out with small roadways separating areas - pitches fairly generous size.

One shower / toilet block in the middle of site, clean and well kept and plenty adequate for site size.Individual shower cubicles with small changing areas.

Bar, restaurant and supermarket on site. Fresh bread sold daily. Wifi available 8 for 48 hours - good connections.

From most pitches you could see the sea - its literally 40ft away from the back pitches and the front pitches look directly onto the beach (although it is fenced between).

C&CC rally on site whilst we were there - friendly group who had organised activities. Work ongoing on site to put in running water to pitches, we had draining to our pitch as most other did.

This is a cracking site in this area - don't let the greenhouse farming in the area put you off - you cant see from the site and it really is a peaceful friendly site - at 13 with ACSI its a bargain too.
