Reviewer: Barsar 35 reviews from this member

Why: The area looked interesting and friends of ours had also decided to stay there. The site reviews were also positive.

Location: A 10 minute walk from the centre of town. Benicassim is a small Spanish town which happens to cater for tourists. It is not overtly commercialised so you will not find the usual tourist shops selling ceramics and olive wood or boat trips or time share sharks. What you will find is a proper Spanish town with a range of normal shops, restaurants and supermarkets. The atmosphere is laid back and friendly. The sandy beach is excellent and you can walk along the promenade without being hassled.

Check in – The office was staffed by three ladies all of whom spoke excellent English. Sadly, the site was full. Yes, full in mid September. An awful lot of British, and Dutch stay for the Winter. We were told that they might have space the following day and that we should return tomorrow. We decided to return about 9pm and were told that they would have some vacant pitches the following morning so we paid a deposit and returned as agreed. There were about 8 possibilities and we selected the one which best suited us.

Pitches - Not overly generous. We selected one that was just big enough for our 7. 5m van, awning and car. The surface is grey gravel and they are separated by hedges. The gold pitches have power, water and drainage and are available for the ACSI rate. They were operating a 7 night for the price of 6 deal – which was good.

If you plan to visit during the second half of September beware. The annual St Thomas fiesta runs for 9 days. On the plus side you can join in various activities including Bull Running, fishing and dancing. There are lots of live musicians performing in various locations on different days. The atmosphere in town was great. On the downside the fiesta site is a 5-minute walk away which is handy but they have an open-air disco on at least 5 nights. This sometimes starts at midnight and runs till 5am. So, get yourself some ear plugs or party with the locals. If you are in town on the last night be sure to watch the street fireworks followed by a spectacular display on the beach.

Facilities

• There were three shower blocks, one of which has been updated with new floor and wall tiles and fascia boards. The other two are showing their age but are kept clean.

• Swimming pools looked inviting with sunbeds around them.

• Bar and restaurant. This was popular for drinks and evening meals. Standard menu which includes pizzas, pasta, grilled pork with chips and steak.

• There is not a shop on site but there is a mid-sized Mercado opposite the entrance. It stocked a good range of groceries and meat. There is also a Lidl a short walk away.

• Beach – is a 10-minute walk past a couple of restaurants and a small supermarket. The beach is sandy and the sea very shallow. You have to walk a good way out before you can swim.

• For 1 euro a day one of the Brits on site will connect you to his 2. 5m satellite dish. So you can get all the UK TV channels.

• Multigym (extra charge)

Pros

• Very well run and maintained site.

• Good value for money food and drink.

• Bus stops nearby.

• Short walk to the weekly market, bars and restaurants in town.

• Several walks and bike routes in the area including clifftop walk to Oropesa and the Park Naturel del Desert where there are good views of the coast.

• The site run regular trips to Valencia which is an hour away.

• Adult activities during Autumn include Aqua gym, Spanish lessons and Macramι classes.

Cons

• Pitches are tight but you get used to it

• To be sure of a pitch you need to book ahead.

• Sanitary facilities need a refurbishment

• Some traffic noise from the AP7.

Would we use again – yes. Though we might not visit for the whole of the Fiesta period. A very nice place to linger during the Autumn.

Stayed for 15 nights and for us the best sight we stayed on in Spain, very friendly and helpful reception staff, gave us a map of available pitches and told to pick the one we liked, toilet blocks are been renovated and although one was out of use the others were never over busy and always plenty of hot water, water and drainage on pitch. Good pool area, happy hour in good bar/restaurant. 10 minute walk to excellent beach, lovely town, bustling at weekends again 10 minute walk away, safe cycling on designated cycling paths, the place ticks all the boxes. Will definitely return and highly recommended.

Although a bit overawed at the size of the site, we were very happy with our pitch and location - close to the reception area and restaurant. Beniscasim is a very pleasant town - very Spanish and the site is within easy access to it. There is a great supermarket opposite the site, and the restaurant within the site itself was good value for money. Yes, the toilets and showers were a bit dated, but with a good supply of hot water. We made use of the laundry facilities and were very happy with the cost. No need to use the tumble drier as it was so sunny we could peg out our washing around our pitch. This is a very busy site and the reception staff could be a bit 'harassed' at certain times if a number of visitors arrived at the same time.

Too big and crowded for us. Only our second site in Spain, but we have decided it is not for us. Cramped, and overlooked, tight access to gold pitches, difficult without a motor mover.

The shower blocks are not clean, and very dated, the staff work hard, but there are just too many people to clear up after, and trying to keep tired facilities clean must be a nightmare. I hate seeing pubic hair in the facilities!

The general maintenance of the site is good.

The better of the shower blocks is nearest reception.

The town is nice, and beaches/walks are super, try the 10 mile round trip to Opresa on the 'greenway'. A highlight of the stay.

Supermarkets are very close, and good value.

Although this site appears to be run well, the staff friendly and the site is clean I was disapointed with this site. The toilets are dated but clean. The pitches are tight for motorhomes and some of the 'serviced pitches' are not. The water and electric on another pitch, you need really long drainage pipes and no way could you 'auto' fill the fresh water tank. The dog walk is terrible. A disused campsite with derelict toilet blocks, glass and steel bits around & just scrubland. We had to sign a form that we would not allow our dog to 'do her business' (as they put it) on site Dogs are not allowed on the beach even in off season, police toured down the promenade and did tell people with dogs to get off the beach. I would not return to Bonterra Park

Access is easy from N-340. Well signposted. Reception staff all speak good English and were very helpful. Nice big site with good toilet blocks and facilities. WiFi worked well. Site technician must hook up electrics. Ours was reverse polarity but luckily I had taken a small polarity tester and he changed over when I pointed out the anomaly. Only disappointment was that having paid extra for a Gold pitch with water and drainage we found that a) the on-pitch water was non-potable i. E. Not usable for any purpose ( there are many drinking water points on site and water quality seemed good )and b) waste water pipe diameter was too small for our standard UK flexible waste hose. All long stayers had a plastic funnel stuffed into the pipe and used a bucket to collect the waste water from the van. Our Wastemaster could not be used so we bought a bucket from the Mercadona across the road and emptied frequently. However these issues did not detract from our stay and we would return.
