We spent 16 nights here. Initial impressions were not favourable. As described before, the site is split by a fairly busy road. The beach side of the site was very full and crowded when we arrived at the start of September, and we were disappointed that we couldn't find a suitable pitch. Many seemed sloping and the majority of outfits (motorhomes predominately), were using levelling blocks. So we went on the other side of the road where the facilities are. Much better. The whole site was reasonably level, and much less crowded. In fact, towards the end of our stay, we were the sole occupants! The owner, Carlos, and his entire team (special thanks to the lady who ran the shop and provided us with fresh bread every day)were brilliant. The shower and toilet blocks were always immaculate despite constant influx of grass and sand from feet and shoes! The large sandy beach is less than a five minute walk, and the stroll into Comillas takes about ten. Comillas is a lovely pretty town with lots to see, including a very bizarre house designed by Gaudi. The university on top of the hill has a stunning interior and exterior, and is worth a visit, as is the town's cemetery. The information centre is good. Lot's of cafe's and restaurants to choose from. Some good, others not quite so good. You won't find any other nationality of food but Spanish (apart from one restaurant, Quo Vardis, an Italian which we could not recommend)and to be honest, the quality wasn't that great. Most set price 3 course menus offered pretty much the same selections. One dish we liked very much was fabes con almejas, a clam and bean soup. We enjoyed the Restaurante Filipinas and the beachside La Caracola (5 minutes walk from site). There are a couple of supermarkets in town for fresh supplies. Near to the site is the medieval town of Santilla del Mar which, although very touristy, is beautiful. The mountains are not far away, and driving to the top can be quite exciting! On one trip we were 1200 metres above sea level, and as we turned round a hairpin bend, a very large bull with huge horns was standing in the middle of the road! We visited the cave museum at Altamira, took the cable car at Fuente De among several other outings. All in all, a very nice scenic region, an excellent site and very friendly people.

We consider ourselves so lucky to have found this campsite by the sea in the wonderful town of Comillas.

The campsite is on two sides of a minor road, one side has pitches by the beach, there are very nice separate mens and ladies toilets, showers, dishwashing facilities and a laundry on this side of the campsite. Extremely helpful wardens, nothing was too much trouble and they were always on hand to help with any queries.

The other side of the road, there were plenty of pitches in the grounds of a beautiful Spanish house with a walled garden. There are also facilities on this side of the campsite, together with a lovely bar where there is free wifi.

Carlos, the owner of this lovely property was a delight to meet, we highly recommend a visit to Camping Comillas if you are in this area of Spain, it is nearest to Santander but also not far from Bilbao.

Comillas has a palace, great fiestas in the typical Spanish squares, a very helpful tourist information office. The beaches are lovely, very sandy, a small harbour with a great fish restaurant.

Very basic flat site with reasonable, clean facilities. Cross the road from the front gate and you're on a sandy beach - with some cliffs and rocks quite close at hand.

Had a small bar which was usually closed and a shop which was reasonable although the fresh veg/fruit left something to be desired. Bars/restaurants within easy walking distance whether up the hill behind the camp to the old town or along the road to the fishing village.

Good place to explore Cantabria from although a bit of a drive to the Picos de Europa.
