We decided to take a risk due to the previous mediocre reviews and were glad we had!

We spent 4 nights here. It is about a 2 hour drive from Santander and right in the middle of the Rioja wine region - if you like wine this is an ideal site!

The site itself was a little tired but was fine. The staff in the reception area were all very helpful and spoke good English.

There is a bar/restaurant which served ok food and also sold bread, water and wine.

There is a pool which we used a couple of times as it was very hot, with a nice grassed area around. There is also a kids club although we had no children with us so can't really comment on that.

We were allowed to choose our own pitch which, although wasn't huge, was the largest of the three sites we stayed at. There were taps regularly spaced around the site and a good motorhome service point. The EHU is the same as the UK, unlike some sites in Spain.

The showers and toilets were clean, with spacious cubicles with hot water. There weren't a huge amount of cubicles but we never had to queue in the morning - but we were up before most of the Spanish, who are the main nationality on this site!

It is a 10 minute (uphill!) walk into Haro, which has some nice restaurants, various touristy bits and several supermarkets. A 10 minute walk in the other direction takes you to the Wineries. We didn't need to move the motorhome during our stay but if we had wanted more wine then we would have had to have done so!

We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return if in the area again.

We booked via their website, which would only let us book a five night stay (and we had to pay one night as deposit) but there was no problem with only staying four nights in total once we arrived.

Stayed here on our way across Spain to Santander. Nice site and the facilities were good and the staff are friendly and helpful. Easy walk into the old town of Haro and it's Rioja wine cellars very ancient town. Only stayed 1 night so didn't really get the full picture but a good stop over on your way South. Pitches with hedges didn't seem big enough for our motorhome so we had to park in the middle which was a bit open but ok.

This is our second visit to this site and I have to say there is a vast improvement from our previous visit two years ago.

Both toilet blocks have been revamped and now have seated toilets and our spotlessly clean.

The general appearance of the site has also improved with it being a lot tidier.

The site reception also appears to have had makeover and the staff were very helpful.

We had only intended to stay for one night but have decided to extend our stay due to the improvements.

I would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone wanting a good stopover when heading south

This site was open when we visited on September the 14th, the swimming pool was closed as was the bar and restaurant. It may be that we picked the wrong night but towards the end of the season and midweek its often the case. There are quite a few weekend permanents and chalets but we found somewhere nice to pitch our tent. The toilets were clean and washing facilities adequate. It is only a short walk into town for a good selection of bars and eateries so it was no problem but a tent, 2 people and 2 motorbikes came to 23 euros and a cheap hotel would have only been 40--45 but I guess I would use it again because it was in the right place for us

Reviewer: Neil and lena 50 reviews from this member

We stayed here in March for one night while returning home from Portugal and to be honest I would not use it again , there were many itinerant workers permanently staying on site and the place resembled a shanty town with many old and dilapidated caravans permanently sited.

We were at the very top of the site on rough ground along with a few other brits who were on route to Bilbao and there were a few unsavoury characters wandering about which made me feel uneasy .

But my main gripe was the stinking disgusting toilet block which had not been cleaned and the toilets had no seats and were covered in urine etc.

Also the nearest fresh water point was a very long walk from the top of the site , in fact I took my aquarolls down in the car and filled them .

The C&CC list this as a good site to use on route to to southern spain , well I most certainly wont use it again emphatically

Mary and I have used this site in transit for the last 3 years. It is very handy for the town although it is uphill walkking for 1/4 mile. Some nice bodegas' and pleasant surroundings. It is close to the motorway (about 1 mile away). It looks rather tired when we are there but it is out of season. English is spoken by the manager and his daughter.
