A truly wonderful site with excellent facilities including some of the hottest dishwashing water we’ve experienced over the years camping in Europe.

Extremely helpful and welcoming staff and good sized pitches. We visited out of season and had a reduced price. While there seemed to be a lot of seasonal pitches the campsite was not anywhere near full and we can’t comment on what it would be like in the height of the season.

While wifi was available at an extra cost the signal was very good.

Beautiful beaches at the perimeter of the site. We stayed for three nights as a final stop before catching our ferry from Santander. While there are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance the town is a bit of a trek hence the location rating.

If we’d known about this site we’d have stayed for longer and will definitely use it again.

Stayed here mainly for the location, which we really couldn't fault, right next to a huge, beautiful beach with very clear water. Ideal for both body boarders/surfers and safe for youngsters as well.

Massive site so I'd advise trying to get a pitch at the back near the animal farm and playing field for a bit of peace and quite.

Toilets and showers spotless. We had the same lady cleaning them for the full 2 weeks - she practically live in the toilet block, she was always there cleaning - I was so impressed I found her on our last day to give her a tip.

Pool looked good but didn't use - you have to wear a swimming hat(available from the shop)which possibly put some people off which was just as well as it would have struggled to cope if half the site wanted to use it.

Well stocked shop and toy/camping accessories shop.

Café fairly basic but ok

Nightly entertainment held on tennis court but again didn't use it.

Huge playing field was great for kids

Animal park a little run down and not sure if it wouldn't be closed down if in England.

Town, supermarket, restaurants all within walking distance.

Site was probably 80% Spanish, 15% British and 5% other, staff all speak fairly good English though

Enormous site with direct access onto a beautiful clean, safe beach. Great for absolutely every beach activity you can think of.

Clean shower blocks but the site is so large that there were always queues for a shower at peak times.

Pitches are very small and equally very shaded which some might consider a bonus but I'd prefer to have the sun and make my own shade - each to their own. The roads around the sites are narrow which meant we felt incredibly crowded. We wanted to stay longer because the beach was so beautiful but we left after two to get some space.

Well stocked shop which was cheap as chips. We didn't visit the bar, café/restaurant so can't comment.

I wouldn't go back here despite the beach. It was expensive and the pitches felt massively crowded to us.

This site is in a great location next to a beautiful beach, with a number of rocky outcrops which can provide a spectacular sight if there are rough seas. In May the beach was deserted except for those taking a walk.

This is a very large (1000 pitches) site with many seasonal vans as well as a large number of statics.

In May it was very quiet, but it is obviously geared up to be very busy in peak season.

The weekends were very busy with an influx of visitors to the seasonal vans.

The cost out of season was only £16 per night and the toilet blocks were constantly being cleaned.

Arrived 6. 30 to be told to walk around site to find a pitch we wanted. Chose one that was furthest away from reception, disco, swimming pool etc, but then we had our bikes. All pitches delineated by hedges/ trees. If you wanted a sunny or shady pitch you would need to choose wisely. Our pitch just about fitted our outwell Montana 6 and extension. Fortunately as it 3rd week in August there were empty pitches to the side of us, where we parked our car. There were a fair number of Brits, probably because it was only 30 mins from Santander, but mainly Spanish.

Facilities - washing machines were 5 euros, WiFi was 15 euros a week or 2 euros an hour, hairdressers, take away - chips 3. 80 euros ( medium to small sized portion), restaurant and disco (can't comment as didn't use either) and shop. Shop was well stocked and sold many different pastries/ pies, bread etc

Several toilet blocks which were always nice and clean with plenty of hot water

Recreation - swimming pool looked nice but we didn't use. Had to wear a bathing hat and life guard was on duty. Football pitch, basket ball, tennis court, outdoor exercise bikes and table tennis.

What made this site was its proximity to the beach and estuary, which was part of a nature reserve. There were 2 gates giving you access to the beach from the campsite. Can't comment on the town of Noja as we spent most of our time on the beach. Well organised site especially as large.

Reviewer: JULIED444 56 reviews from this member

Booked this online about 8 months in advance requested 2 large pitches together as we were travelling with family and this was all in order when we arrived. Pitches varied in size and with or without borders depending on what you paid. We had large hedges all round giving plenty of shade. Pitch was large enough for our caravan, awning with annex, car and washing line so very large compared to some Spanish sites we have been on.

Beach was a 2 minute walk from our pitch – cold showers just inside the site to rinse off with a large gate that closed at 11pm to avoid unwelcome visitors onto the site. You could walk to the neighbouring village when the tide was out – or swim back if it was in which nearly happened in our case – so be warned!

On site facilities were of the highest standard – lots of large toilet/shower blocks, constantly being cleaned. Laundry facilities – wifi area which you paid for, but to be honest was a bit erratic. There was a tv booster system on the electricity hook-up posts, presumably only Spanish TV, not sure.

Strict noise restrictions which were obeyed there was a nightclub for teenagers which was no problem. Swimming pool (swimming hats required), supermarket, souvenir shop, beauty salon, doctors. Outside gym, inside games room, tennis court. Restaurant and takeway – we did try the pizza but they were only out of the freezer so didn’t bother again. Chips were better value for money. Roast chickens available to buy but must order 2 hours in advance.

Just outside the site every Wednesday a fantastic market. Every 20 minutes or so also just outside the site was a little tourist train which could take you into town for 4 euros return.

Great site, would return if in the area, our only 2 minor issue would be for those campers that like their electric gadgets as on 6 amp we did find we used to pop the electric just by keeping the hot water on and then maybe putting the kettle on. The second would be no evening entertainment as it does say in the brochure for high season The only entertainment was karaoke once a week which I don’t think that can count.

Weather in August was just how we wanted it, not so hot that you couldn’t sight see during the day (Valencia last year, beautiful but just too hot!), but warm enough to sit out without putting on a jumper.

Also note, site very dark at night, so bring torches. A definite site to bring bikes. Security very good, guard at the entrance 24/7 checking the sticker inside your car.
