Stayed here after reading positive reviews and stayed for 2 nights. Large site with lots of static homes but has large touring field. We were right at the beach end facing a super sandy beach which was great for walking the dog.

Facilities good have to leave a 20 deposit for toilet block but individual bathrooms with showers and toilets in. Clean and hot showers although timed and stop frequently. Only complaint was there was not one plug in the wash uip area which is annoying.

Good site for exploring Fife coast, lots for the kids and would be happy to stay again. We didn't use it but large restaurant and entertainment.

First visit to Fife and picked Elie due to the favourable comments from other reviewers and I wasn't disappointed.

Pitch fee was 16 per night for two people which was great value, the pitches were mostly hard gravel with some grassy areas close by, the bay is literally yards away from the site with stunning views across the Firth of Forth.

There is one Toilet block which adequately served the site, there are 8 personal showering cubicles, a laundry room and outside sinks for washing your plates etc.

For children there is an imaginative Robinson Crusoe play area, for adults there is a bar lounge which provides entertainment at weekends, there is also an on site shop.

The site is perfect for touring the Fife coastal route, I would definitely visit again.

This is a great site.

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed our stay.

It's a great location right on the beach, the beach itself is very clean and is a mixture of rocks and sand, the kids loved exploring the rock pools and making sand castles. There is also the most amazing pirate themed play park which was also a great hit for them.

We had fish and chips from the takeaway window one night and that was reasonably priced and also very nice, we didn't use the bar or restaurant area so I can't comment on that.

Shower and toilet block was always clean and tidy every time I used it.

On a bit of a downside, we were pitched close to the bar area and at chucking out time around midnight it did get very noisy, so my advise would be to get a pitch away from there, unless of course you don't want far to stagger home.

We'll be back again this year.

Stayed here 22 - 24 may, great site, toilets and showers were very clean (20 deposit for key). Ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was fab also had breakfast before leaving. Shop on site, . Pub, games room, restaurant, large play park, football pitch and right on the beach. Pot wash, laundry. Had an EHU and paid 48 for 2 nights, 10 mins drive from St Andrews. Entertainment both nights were very good, bingo then Guitarist/ Duo respectively. Staff very polite and helpful.

Spent a few nights here during the first week of the school Easter holidays. It was a last minute booking and this is not the type of site I would normally visit. I had read the reviews with an open mind.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a tent on an EHU pitch. There are only 8 tent pitches and the rest of the pitches are for the tin tenters. The pitches were a generous size and next to the facility block (showers, toilets and pot wash area). The reception with the bistro and entertainment area were a short walk away. The pitches for caravans were smaller and more crammed together in rows. For those pitching a tent/awning, remember to pack your sturdy pegs. The ground was quite hard and sandy with it being so close to the beach. I am sure it also gets a hammering from the wind. Something we thankfully didn't experience.

I can imagine at peak times this site would be very noisy. We were lucky to encounter no problems with noise from other campers or from the evening entertainment. We did not use the bar area but we did have breakfast in the bistro twice. The food was very nice and reasonably priced. They do evening meals and offer a takeaway service also.

The play area was a big attraction for kids all ages. There is a big pirate boat climbing frame that was being well used. For football fanatics there is a football area with goals.

We were fortunate with the weather. It was warm and sunny for the beginning of April. The beach is a stones throw from the site. Its a pretty bay with shallow water safe enough for kids to paddle whilst being supervised. There are lots of walks around the site. You can walk into the pretty village of Elie from the beach but remember your sensible foot ware for this. For people planning a longer stay, this is a great base for exploring the East Neuk of Fife.

I would visit this site again but would try and avoid weekends and Bank Holidays when it is at full capacity. All members of staff that we dealt with were very nice and helpful.

We stayed for two nights in Easter hols with two kids 6 and 3 years. On arrival, reception was busy but staff were friendly. Unfortunately the young girl who served me seemed inexperienced. She couldn't tell me where my pitch was, or the best route to reach it. She did however move my pitch when I requested it.

We had originally been placed in the E field. This is a large field where caravans are 6 wide and 4 deep. Ridiculously overcrowded. Caravans were so close together that you could only fit in the caravan and awning with car parked in front, and we would have been staring right into the window of our neighbour. We managed to get moved to a pitch on the edge which gave us a little more space and privacy.

The park seemed very busy when we arrived but was surprisingly quiet noise wise, and we were away from the entertainment block so didn't get any noise from that either. I didn't like the toilet blocks at all. Not too busy and didn't have to wait but the showers were not powerful, floor soaking, no stool, only two pegs, everything soaking. On my second morning I decided to wait til getting home to shower!

Food in the restaurant was good and staff were helpful. Kids entertainment was good for my 6 year old. Jolly Jigglers. Short walk down to a rocky beach which was fun for exploring. Pirate ship playpark was great fun for the kids. Shop was good and well stocked. Arcades were fine.

I will not return though due to the shower facilities and the feeling of being packed in like sardines. Not my idea of relaxation.
