My wife and I stayed here for 25 days. We were given no. 1 pitch, next to the pool and restaurant /bar. The pitch was large with plenty room for our caravan, awning, car and space left over. It had 16w electric, water, drainage and analogue British TV - BBC1, ITV1, BBC News 24, Channel 4, ITV3. The pitches are on hard ground mostly covered in gravel so you need strong, pointed pegs and a tough groundsheet.
This is a very large flat site with three toilet blocks. They each have modern men and woman toilets, (not like the French unisex ones) showers, dishwashing, hand clothes washing, washing machines, a dryer, ironing and chemical disposal.
The site has had lots of trees and bushes planted so the pitches will be better separated in the future. There is a small shop with basics including real British bacon and bread.
There is a good supermarket selling lots of British food at Al Faz del Pi about a mile from the site with sensible prices and a large Carrefour an easy 5 mile drive along the N322 main road.
The restaurant / bar is clean modern with very pleasant hard working staff. Beer was 1.50e (£1.20) a pint, Sangria 7.50e (£6) a litre. All sky football matches are available in the bar or on the outside terrace.
The outside swimming pool was cold, I only managed 20 minutes (April) in it but the indoor pool (small charge) was lovely and warm with a jacuzzi like a hot bath. There is a bouncy castle and a small playground next to the pools.
There is a good bus service to Al Faz, Altea or Benidorm from the site, every 15 mins. The fare is 1. 40e (£1. 20)for any journey or 1. 15e(92p)if you buy a bus card for 10 or more euros. 15 minutes to Benidorm and it passes the 'Palace'.
The train station next to the site has trains to Altea, Benidorm and goes as far as Alicante.
The Scotsman who looks after the entertainment was very good. He sings, does the karaoke and play your cards right. There are a number of British people living on site who frequent the bar and are very friendly and make you feel welcome.
I found all the staff, reception (good English), cleaners, maintenance men etc. Very polite and helpful.
The wifi is 12e per week and is ok but goes off sometimes when using Skype. Wifi is free in and around the cafe /bar with good reception. Internet is available in the bar /cafe.
We booked here for 10 days over Easter week as it was cheaper.
We stayed on Almafra while on a Winter Rally with the Camping and Caravanning Club and although we enjoyed the Rally the site is Ok but there are better.
The actual site toilets and showers were nice and modern as was the main site reception building and bar/restaurant but the pitches were not the best, some were nothing more than mud and grass while other's were made up hardstanding.
On the plus side all pitches had individual water taps and grey water drains and on the EHU bollards there is plug in TV points through which you could watch analogue British TV - BBC1, ITV1, BBC News 24, Channel 4, ITV3.
The site is well situated for catching the local Bus and train into Benidorm which is ideal if your a motorhomer and have no transport.
The nearest shops are 2-3 km from the site at
L'Alfas del Pi or Altea which a bit further.
Benidorm centre is about 5 miles from site and 15 minute bus ride.
Because of the proximity of the N332 there is also some road noise although it just background hum so not to bad.
