After reading reviews and recommendations for Spanish campsites on the Costa Brava, I feel it would be wrong to hide this little gem from everyone else. We stayed here for a week from 18 - 25 August, 2012.
Firstly, the summary at the top says this site is for 'Adults Only', which is not the case, so ignore that as this is one of the best family campsites we've ever been to.
Right, so where shall I start? Maybe with the price, because we were on a budget at the time and felt their prices were very reasonable compared to other sites in the area. An added bonus is that over 55's stay free from around middle August onwards, which is the time we normally go, so the parents may even come along next time!
The site itself is right on the beach, with 2 types of pitches. Those closer to the beach that are a bit more expensive, and those further back that are cheaper. We stayed a bit further back but thought these were great as they had more shade. The toilets and shower blocks were spotless (my wife's biggest bugbear!) and were cleaned all the time. There was always hot water, can't remember ever queuing and they also supply toilet paper.
On arrival we were told to go and select a pitch and just tell them the number afterwards. This was great as we could pick the perfect spot for ourselves. We spotted a few GB cars but the majority of campers were either Dutch, Spanish or German. We were surprised to hear the entertainment offered in English as well, which was a bonus!
There is a supermarket on site which was very well priced, we felt it was cheap coming from France the week before. They also baked fresh bread every morning which was very popular! There's also a little restaurant and a mini golf next to the supermarket.
The pool area is great, with 2 lifeguards and lots of open space and grass you can sit on. The pool doesn't have any slides, but we soon realised that's not the be all end all. Give our kids space, freedom, water and sunshine and they're in their element! There was one day where they had massive inflatable slides in the pool which the kids loved. Needless to say, the weather was amazing and averaged around 35 degrees during our stay, with a light breeze which was perfect for cooling down.
The surrounding area is nice with Pals, Toroella de Montgri and L'Estartit well worth a visit. We drove further up to Roses which is a nice and where the more expensive campsites are found. A bit further up along a narrow dead end road you'll find the town of Cadaques, which is an absolute must to visit. There's a Lidl on the road between Toroella de Montgri and L'Estartit and I believe there's one in Palafrugell as well. We also went to Palamos for a day but wasn't that impressed. Got the feeling it comes alive in the evenings, but not much to write home about during the day.
Closer to home its well worth going for a walk along the coastal path, where you'll discover amazing little coves and cliffs from where you can jump into the sea. Even my 7 year old braved it and speaks about it to this day! Pack some snacks and make a day of it.
All in all, its a big thumps up for this campsite. We stayed there for a week but could easily have stayed another week if not longer. We're going back this year and we don't normally visit the same site twice, so that alone should tell you something. Hopefully as a result of this review we'll see a few more GB cars this year! ;-)
