Reviewer: Dini 1 review from this member

Have just returned from a fortnights holiday on this site. Wonderful site, clean toilets, loads of hot water in shower block, pitches are large and there are two pools and a bar/restaurant. Staff are helpful and speak english.

Couple of points to note - for some reason the site does not allow sunbeds around the pool or inflatables in the pool - don't really understand the reasoning for this - surely sunbeds would do less damage to the grass than people laid around on the floor? Also inflatables would add to the enjoyment around the pool for the kids.

Other than that cannot fault this site. Its location is close to Benidorm centre (less than 30 minutes slow walk), very close to Benidorm Palace (approx 5 mins walk). There are a few bars/shops nearby if you don't want to walk into the centre. There are frequent busses down to the centre (number 10, about every 15-20 mins, cost 1E 40 cents one way but I guess you could get a return ticket - we never bothered as we used to talk down and only get a bus back if necessary), a taxi from Benidorm centre cost us about 8 Euros (after 12)

Its also easy to get to from the main routes, no driving through Benidorm centre.

Dogs were allowed on the site and we took two with us. They need loads of shade so if you taking dogs pick a shady pitch.

Would definitely go back to this site - I think it was a good choice (perhaps management may have had a rethink on the pool situation by then. )

We stayed here for 7 nights. A large site very well run, pitches are large but as cars must be parked on the pitch + awning + large caravan, so positioning is very important,

Shower blocks are well placed very well maintained and never had to wait. TV point on pitch. WIFI available at a cost of €10.00 for a week and the site installs an antenna on your pitch to enable good reception,

We will definitely return maybe in November this year

This is an excellent site with nice neat well kept pitches all separated by low hedges.

Most are fully serviced with plug in TV points allowing you to watch British TV which is a real bonus, there are also 3 wash blocks around the site with very clean showers and toilets and dish washing facilities.

The site also has an excellent shop on site which sells a good selection of fresh and frozen food as well as British Newspapers and some caravanning accessories, the on site bar restaurant also serves good quality snacks and meals and there is usually some evening entertainment in the bar.

Benidorm town centre is only 10-15 minutes walk so this site is good for Motorhomers without transport and there is a bus stop close to the site entrance for any one not wanting to walk.

The site was virtually full during our 1 week stay with a high percentage of pitches being occupied by British caravanner overwintering

I have not stayed at this site but my parents live 5 minutes walk away on a static site (Camping Villamar)

El Raco is in a fantastic position for Benidorm. Out of the site gates turn right and down a hill takes you directly down to Levante Beach (30 mins stroll). 10 mins walk to Benidorm Palace, loads of bars and restaurants outside site as well. Number 10 bus outside site takes you into Benidorm centre or Altea / Albir the other way

The bar/ restaurant has a lovely terrace area overlooking the pool, lovely when the sun is setting over Benidorm.

Indoor and outdoor pool and small playground for children, shop on site as well. Can't comment on facilities inside the camp ground itself but really nice position if you want to be in Benidorm
