There is little I can add, with regard to information regarding the facilities, that has not already been mentioned by other visitors to this site.

I have been visiting Amfora for many years, and have watched it expand, to the point that personally I think the last 70+ pitches that they have just added beyond the 'new' 5 star toilet block, may be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

The site is now also welcoming student groups in a tented encampment near the beach, not in itself a problem, but I would have thought that with a rather large body of young persons in tented accommodation they might have opened the third toilet block, but it remained stubbornly closed.

Having visited both in May/June and September, I have noticed that the full facilities are now open for a much shorter period than used to be the case.

The newer 'Amfora' shaped pool now seems to only be opened in the high season.

Over the last couple of years many of the older 'cabins' have been replaced by new ones, and a few more camping pitches have been given over to yet more cabins. Hence the 70+ new camping pitches, I guess.

The majority of campers seem to be Dutch and German, with a multitude of regular weekend Spanish visitors, who seem to delight in making a lot of noise late at night, which can be a problem. This scenario has gradually worsened over the last few years, or maybe I'm getting older and grumpier ?

Even with Camping Cheques booking is advisable in low season.

It is probably not a site to visit if peace and quiet is high on the agenda. It's still a fine site, but if they carry on expanding I doubt I will return.

Shame really, I will miss the leisurely 20 minute stroll to the bodega and restaurant at Mas Guso !

We thought this site was lovely and clean well laid out, the pitches are mostly large long pitches with hedges between except the length of pitch there is no division, so you would be quite close to other van on the pitch, but, still enough room for caravan awning and car and still room for 2 loungers. You can have your own water so take a long enough hose to reach, I must say it was lovely not to have to keep fetching water barrels.

The beach is excellent but if you have limited mobility it could be an issue as its quite a walk from some pitches it being a very large site. If you take chairs and brolleys to beach you would need a trolley of some kind to transport them, we went to beach through the tropical bar/restaurant as our pitch was close to this and there is a pathway upto and on the beach so it was easy to walk it for us.

Security is very good with all staff including cleaners checking you had a wrist band on, and they all had radios or mobile phones on them, which we found very useful as we had an altercation with a steel post on exiting the site and cleaner called for help on her radio and they were there in minutes.

Shower block was modern and spotless with loads of hot water and good powerful showers with button press to keep water coming, they were going to close one of the blocks, there are 3, due to them closing on the 25th sept, wish they would stay open longer but I think they get a lot of high winds and storms later?

There are other facilities such as pools shops etc but didn't use them so cant comment.

The site was fairly full at time of our visit and get the feeling that this is the case all season

The only downside for us was the amount of dogs on site, mostly they were on leads with only occasional dogs getting free, but the problem was the noise of barking, when one started rhe whole lot started and it was like camping at a dog kennels. And we like dogs but it was a bit annoying, you could be unlucky and be parked opposite someone with whinning barky dogs.

Used camping cheques so good value for money

Overall a nice site and hope to visit again soon

I have little to add to the fantastic service and cleanliness of the place mentioned by other reviewers.

The town of San Pere Pescador is rather basic but the Tourist Office by the bridge is very helpful.

Just up the road, on the outskirts of L'Escala is a new Mercadona supermarket, which has a wider range of products and lower prices than the on site supermarket.

The wifi, for which you pay, is time specific rather than device specific, so more than one device can use the same code.

If arriving in the early season, remember that the area is host to the World Kite Surfing Championships. So it is windy.

The Tramuntana from the North West can spring up from 0 to force 5 in seconds, and play havoc with injudiciously placed awnings. ( The local camping shop has storm straps and awning repair kits very prominently displayed. )

As it takes Camping Cheques, this site represents a wonderful value for money.

We love this site. Admittedly we paid extra for a pitch with a private toilet and shower but after a few weeks on the road in the cramped environs of our van conversion it was a worthwhile luxury.

We were out of season so not everything was open but the contrast between weekdays when only tourists are there and weekends when the local holidaying Spaniards arrive is marked and much more fun for it!

Reception staff are great and entirely multilingual and the supermarket offers almost all you could want. The pool and general facilities are great and the beach although windy is fantastic. You may be disappointed if you go onto the very basic pitches - it's a bit cosy but that was the only slight fault we could find. Otherwise pitches are tree lined and private, run east-west to catch the sun, and are beautifully tended although in June you get burrs off the clover grass which required constant brushing from our dogs fur.

As a footnote - try the kite surfing (2 day course - 6 hours tuition ) totally exhilarating!

Oh yes - not the cheapest but good value - cash only for pitch fees although everything else takes cards. A minor inconvenience as they have a hole-in-the-wall at reception.

First time in Spain and we were a little apprehensive. No need though, we had a really enjoyable week here. This is a very clean, slic, well organised site. Never been on a site this big before, but it has its advantages, we enjoyed our evening strolls looking at all the different outfits, from tiny. And I mean tiny to the German Juggernauts with the small car in the garage in the back.

Not very many English, mostly Germans and Dutch. , still quite busy a week before it closes.

The toilet blocks each had their own full time cleaner who sprayed / cleaned the toilet when you had left it.

Staff all very pleasant and helpful

Roses a is a lovely place, as is aEscala, very Spanish, no sign of English breakfasts etc.

We would come again.

An excellent site, although it is large it doesn't feel overcrowded at all. All nationalities represented, everyone mixed in, which was good.

When we arrived we were shown to our pitches which were in a cul-de-sac which meant that there was no passing traffic, however it wasn't quiet! We seemed to have arrived on a Spanish bank holiday week-end. Lots of large groups of Spanish people all coming and going to each others tents or caravan. When they all went home it did become a lot calmer!

I agree with all the other comment regarding the toilets which were spotless always.

The supermarket had everything you could want making frequent trips to other supermarkets (which were near) unnecessary.

The restaurant was good, we ate there several times, also at the restaurant across the road which was also good.

Very flat in and around the site, made bike riding very easy!

We visited Roses and went on the Roses Express taking the mountain route. It was surprising how cold it was on top of the mountain compared to the coast. If you go take a cardigan or jacket.

We did go to the beach a few times but it was always windy and the sand blew about a lot making sun bathing difficult. Good for all the wind surfers though!

The only negative thing was at reception, on busy days, you had to queue with all the people booking in (which takes a fair amount of time) when all you want is a token for the laundry, lesson learnt, get the token when it is not busy!

The Wi-Fi was good but not good enough to Skype.

Some good evening entertainment, mostly we just listened from our own pitch, but we did go to watch a couple of times.

This was our second visit which speaks for itself as we rarely visit the same place twice!
