This site had spotlessly clean showers and toilets, with plenty of hot water, pitches are terraced so that everyone has a good view over the valley, the pitches are a little on the small side but are adequate, the site is maintained very well.

WiFi is only available in the bar area, but did not suffer from 'drop out', the staff were very friendly and spoke good English.

A large, well developed site in a good area for outdoors types, with excellent facilities including a good bar and restaurant. (Wifi available, but in the bar only. )

Two minor negatives:

- usually only one person on duty to cover reception, bar and shop, so often you wait to be attended to.

- although dogs are allowed, facilities for them aren't the best; not allowed in the bar, only one entrance/exit to the site and no provision for walking your dog unless you go out of the main entrance and find a nearby path.

One of our favourite Spanish sites nestled in the Spanish side of the Pyrenees. Fantastic views of the Pyrenees and the site is nicely terraced so you can have mostly uninterrupted views of the scenery and is immaculately kept. There are several very clean and well equipped toilet blocks so you don't have to be a mountain goat to get to them. All pitches are marked out and you can choose your pitch on arrival.

The swimming pool is open in the summer months and situated at the top of the site so that you have lovely views whilst sun bathing. Staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a local shop on site and bread can be ordered for the next morning. Local villages are either down hill about 3 miles or uphill for a couple of miles.

The bar and restaurant are good value and the menu provides a wide choice with a fixed price 2 course option also available.

Great walking opportunities and there is mountain bike hire on site but you would need to be pretty fit to cope with the hills!

Reviewer: Neil and lena 50 reviews from this member

We used this site for a 2 night stay while on route to Benidorm, on arrival we were greeted by the very friendly receptionist who spoke no English but with my limited Spanish I managed to book in for two nights.

The site was virtually deserted although there were many unoccupied caravans which were on seasonal pitches.

There are 3 toilet / shower blocks which are very clean modern and heated but only one was in use during our stay.

The site is terraced and has some lovely views across the valley but the access roads although well surfaced could be challenging if you were towing a large caravan as there are some tight turns.

The on site bar and restaurant was open while were there and there were a few local people in during the evening's who were friendly enough.

The site has free Wi-Fi but only in the bar and also a small but well stocked shop which had fresh bread on sale but during the winter months has limited opening hours.

Would we return ? Yes we would as the site is well run the area has a lot to offer

Probably one of the best sites we have stayed on. Set in the beautiful Spanish Pyrenees between the Tena valley and the Ordessa national park. The site is set into the size of the mountain and is terraced with a variety of pitch sizes.

The site is at an altitude of 909m and as a result is cold once the sun goes down.

The facilities for families with older children and limited - there is no play area for older children to play football. There are 2 play areas for younger children and a superb swimming pool set at the top of the site which provides magnificent views over the valley.

The site has probably the best toilet and shower facilities which are kept immaculate through out the day and night. The only problem is there are only 2 toilets and 2 showers in each block, so a peak time a queue can form.

The site has a cafeteria which is also the reasonably priced bar. Wifi is free in the bar area, so in the early evening it was usually full of people surfing the internet over a coffee or beer.

The restaurant has a fixed price menu each night which was extremely good value - most of the starters and deserts are ready prepared catering meals. We ate in the restaurant twice and were not disappointed - I think it was 12. 5 each for 3 courses including wine.

The one downside is that the nearest large supermarket was way down the valley in Sabinanigo. Biecas had two small shops, however we found these expensive.

This is a great site. Very new (in 2004), with superb facilities built in stone.

Lovely bar area with good food and plenty of atmosphere.

A very well run site.

The main reason for staying here is the fantastic Ordesa park which offers superb walking/hiking. You can go off for several days and stay in mountain hermidas, or just do local walks. We did the 17 km jaunt to the famous 'horses tail' waterfall. Well worthwhile and lots to see and do an the way. The Pyrenees at their splendid best!
