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!

Large family site. We only had 2 nights here as we were travelling home. Large, hedged pitches, trees over our pitch gave us shade.

Excellent facilities, showers and toilets constantly being cleaned, I can imagine if you spent a fortnight here, you would get to know the cleaners very well!

No problem booking in as we hadn't booked in advance, just needed to make sure we had cash as that is all they take.

Definitely deserves its rating of First Class!

Reviewer: Iwalani 133 reviews from this member

This is a very large site, well laid-out on a grid plan and well-organised. Pitches vary slightly in size and shape but all are grassy, level, divided by hedges and of generous proportions - and some are positively huge.

Reception staff are multi-lingual, very friendly and helpful. On sale in reception are postcards, maps and English newspapers, and there is a book exchange.

As other reviewers have said the cleaners are ever-present in the well-equipped toilet blocks. While this is a good thing, I did feel that there were times when a little privacy would have been welcome!

There is ample hot water for the washing-up and laundry sinks and a large laundry room with washing machines, dryers and irons. The machines are among the most expensive I have come across, at 5. 50 euros, and dryers are 4. 50, but irons are free.

I can’t comment on the swimming pools or entertainment as they weren’t available in low season, but the café, restaurant and ice-cream bar were very good, as was the supermarket. There is wifi throughout, for a charge.

There is direct access to a large beach which is rather breezy and hence very popular with kite-surfers. As the area is subject to occasional strong winds, a regular camper gave us good advice – always pitch your awning facing south. He had witnessed a number of awnings damaged if not facing south. We also found that the pitches got very muddy after rain, though this would presumably not be a problem in July/August.

The surrounding area is very flat and bike-friendly, and bikes of all sizes are available for hire on the site. The nearest supermarket of any size, other than the campsite’s own, is on the outskirts of Roses, which is a delightful seaside resort with lots of amenities. About 5 km to the south, the pretty little village of Sant Marti has a lovely beach and some excellent restaurants.

We can also comment on the bungalows and mobile homes for rent at L’Amfora, because while we were there with our caravan, our son, his girlfriend, and our daughter flew out to join us for a week, and we needed to book some accommodation for them. The staff kindly let us have a look in the various options. The bungalows were very nice and would be ideal in hot weather, but because in April it was still quite unsettled we decided a mobile home would provide more spacious indoor accommodation. Like the bungalows, the mobile homes were very clean and smart and well-equipped with everything you could possibly need, even washing-up liquid, dish cloth and tea towel! They had heaters for cooler weather, 2 big fans for hot weather, TV with English stations, microwave, electric kettle, toaster and coffee machine.

Although much bigger than the sort of sites we usually prefer, the facilities at L’Amfora were first-class and it would be an excellent site for families with children of all ages.

I have rated this highly for value for money, as we used camping cheques (15 euros a night).
