We've been to this site for 6 years now, and really enjoy the direct beach access and nearby attractions.

However this year we have noticed some changes.

The toilets, normally somewhat suspect due to the lack of toilet seats and the high traffic levels in peak seasons, were not so clean as normal. Given the variety of national practices regarding toiletting, this became somewhat offensive.

We reckoned that the normal team of 6 cleaners was down to 2 or 3.

Similarly the beach, cleaned daily in previous years, was only flattened, and NEVER cleaned. Hence, the once lovely beach was a sand filled rubbish dump.

Although the site personnel have all clearly had a customer service training, it is notable that the bars on site with other owners haven't. Indeed, it was impossible to get served atall at the pool bar, during our stay.

Next year, we will either stay next door (Montroig) or even try a different country.

Please note: no affiliations or relationships with any mentioned sites.

This is our site of choice out of season, when its not so busy as in school holidays. A lovely beach that is cleaned daily, easy access via wooden steps, be careful if you are a little doddery as they are a bit high, but site does all it can to keep them as safe as poss. At this site there are all the facilities you would wish for and they are all open out of high season.

In the towns close by Miami Playa and Hospitalitet there are plenty of restaurants cafes and shops, and also they have street markets a plenty.

Further afield there is Salou for a lively night out, check out the fountains that are turned on with music and colours, there is a lovely ambience here on the promenade, on a lovely balmy evening, there is nothing better.

Further north there is Tarragonna, which is a very interesting city full of history and culture.

For a trip with a difference, head out towards Monseratt not far from Barcelona with its wonderful monolithic mountains and monastery with the black maddona to see and very often dancers and singers performing,

If you are disabled you will be able to park right at the top if you show your blue badge, which is a godsend, there is also a vehicular railway to the top of the mountain for the most spectacular view,

Then visit the restaurant and shop before heading back to site. This trip takes a full day but you will glad you did it.

The area has so much to offer, which is why we're going to this site again in September.

We use camping cheques to pay for site which is 13. 95 per unit of 2 pers per night inc. Electric caravan/motorhome or tent, But I think from 2012 they will not be accepting them, but they will take an ACSI card and they will charge 15 euros per night (other sites charge 11/13/or 15 euros depending on the facilities), so it is the cheapest way of staying here. Although there are retirement rates when you stay 3 weeks plus that are cheaper if you stay for 6-8 weeks out of season.

Huge site. Good pool complex, entertainment. Site situated next to a lovely sandy beach with beach bar plus other bars, nightclubs, movie theatre, restaurants. Facilities clean.

Pitches are small and with our 22m caravan, we found it very tight to get down the roads and into the pitch.

To enter the main camping area, you have to drive under a small bridge, where there are children constantly walking under / cycling under to go to and fro the swimming complex. I do feel this does post a real risk of an accident if this has not already happened.

A site ideal for families with teenagers, but not for young children.

Fantastic site couldn't want for more. Right on the beach with a lovely beach bar and restaurant. Pitches are well maintained and security spot on. Toilets and showers are regularly cleaned so no problems there. English speaking staff who were very helpful. Only downside was going under bridge to entrance of site, can be dicey with young children on bikes but if you are going very slow (as you should be) not a real problem. Pools and jacuzzi are great and plenty of activities, even a cinema. Our friends loved this site too. Not too far to drive to Cambrills or Salou or Tarragona and Reus airport is only 15-20mins away.

Our favourite site for a warm holiday.

The campsite is directly adjacent to the beach, giving easy safe access. The on-site swimming pool is large, well managed (at times over-supervised) and the whole place is meticulously clean.

Extensive restaurants and bars on site, make this an excellent venue.

Barcelona is within easy reach (we usually go by train) Portaventura is 40 minutes drive and Santander is one (long but interesting) days drive away.

The down sides: very busy in peak season, difficult to get a spot beside the pool or on the beach. The roads are not made up on the pitches: so it can get a little dusty. A central open storm drain runs down the centre of part of the site, its needed but it smells occasionally.

All in all, its a wonderful site with good facilities on site and wonderful places to explore around about. Its the easiest run across from Santander / Bibao, and in our opinion the closest place to the UK for assured good weather.
