This is an excellent site, very well-maintained, within the unspoilt landscape of the Cabo de Gata National Park. Pitches are gravelled and are of a very good size, separated by hedges, and with a variety of trees for shade. All pitches are covered by permanent sunshades but these don't cause any problems with access.
The orientation of the site means that all pitches on one side of the 'roads' are in sun, the opposite side in shade. So in winter - and this is a very popular site for over-wintering - the sunny pitches are in demand, and in summer I imagine it would be the other way round! Cabo de Gata is one of the driest areas in Europe and the summer heat must be pretty fierce.
There is one, large, central sanitation block, fully enclosed, very clean and well-equipped. Loos have seats and paper, washbasins have warm water, soap and hand-driers, showers are roomy and have controllable temperature, although they are push-button.
There is a large, semi-enclosed washing up and laundry area. Half of the sinks have warm water, the rest cold. Washing machines cost 3 euros.
There is a popular restaurant and bar. Set meals cost 9. 75 euros, but on Wednesdays it's only 6 euros! There is a shop but it's fairly limited. Fresh bread is available daily. As this is a fairly remote area it's about 25 km to the nearest big supermarket, but there's a small one in the picturesque little resort of San Jose, just 4 km away, along with a good selection of bars and restaurants.
There's a nice swimming pool, open in winter, but the water is a bit cold! There are some organised activities in winter - Spanish lessons, etc - and various sports facilities. Wifi is free and available throughout.
There is a lovely beach 10 minute's walk away, and many good walks and cycle rides in the area. The scenery is fantastic - volcanic, arid, with strangely-shaped rock formations along the coast.
A lovely site that we would be happy to return to. Camping Cheques accepted.
