I don't disagree with any of the preceding comments. However, we were there for five days last week during torrential rainstorms. We were put in a 'new' part of the site, sans hard standings. It took five men, rubber mats and the motor mover just to get us onto our pitch, and I had to wind the legs every day to compensate for 'That Sinking Feeling'. We moved on to Madrid as soon as there was a (short) break in the weather. It rained there too.

My only other observation is that the owner was polite to the point of obsequiousness.

First time to Spain in our VW campervan with 2 adults and 2 children ages 12 and 15 yrs. The site is only 50 mins from the Santander ferry and is easy to find from San Vicente. We were placed on a lovely pitch half way up the site with views to the Picos De Europa mountains, with other English families, so the children immediately made friends. We didn't have any shade, so I would suggest you either go to the bottom of the site, but you won't get the views, or take a canopy for shade.

The shop on site only sells essentials, ie milk, bread, butter and cold meats. The nearest town Comillas (2 miles away) has a small supermarket and there is a cycle path the whole way. There is a large supermarket in the next nearest town.

There is a beautiful beach within 15 mins walk, with a free car park and a beach cafe. You can get surfing lessons on the beach. The on site restaurant is brilliant value (5 for a lovely salad) and the coffee is just 80p a cup. You will just have to get used to Spanish meal times, in that it doesn't serve food until 8. 30pm.

There is plenty to do in the area for at least 10 days, but you will need a car to see all the beautiful towns and mountains. We had bikes and there are just too many hills to get very far on them.

The site was very quiet

We had a very enjoyable 13 nights here. Previous reviews describe the site and area perfectly.

The cleanest toilet and showers we have ever come across staff on duty throughout the day to ensure they were clean. Lots of hot water. Dish wash facilities also superb. Small laundrette too with dryer. Francis was very helpful.

We had a pitch closest to the road which was not a problem as it is reasonably quiet just traffic to the beach.

The beach is amazing. We would return and would ask for a pitch on the terrace as you get lovely views of the Picos. I would also ask for a pitch with some sun.

The site is nice and shady with lots of trees but if it rains you do need some sun to dry your pitch.

You have to expect some rain we had 3 days, the area would not be so beautiful without it.

The site is a great base to explore the area Picos de Europa is stunning, Comillas is lovely and San Vincente has some great restaurants.

We had 3 teenagers with us and they had a great time too. Didn't take us long to adjust to Spanish time site is very quiet up to 10ish lights in the play areas go out at 12 midnight so quiet after then.

I can only agree with the comments in the previous review. Having spent our holiday in a variety of sites in Spain & Portugal we decided that this site had the best facilities overall. The toilets / showers etc are spotless as they are regularly cleaned. The is a large bar / restaurant and an excellent swimming pool. There are pitch sizes to suit all sizes of unit including our 28 feet long motorhome. The beach is a pleasant 1 mile walk and the sea offers the chance to surf. Highly recommended. The site is 10 minutes from the A8 Autoroute.

Reviewer: Townheadbluesboy 1 review from this member

It hasn't changed - great site could easily go back and spend more time in the mountains. The on-site restaurant has great food - best rice pudding I've ever tasted. We are a family of 4 and our favourite days were spent bodyboarding at the local beach followed by barbeque at the site. Comillas is the nearest town and has a couple of supermarkets. Had to adjust to Spanish time with not a lot happening early in the morning. Bilbao and interesting day trip.

Francis who runs the place knows everything and is very friendly.

Great place -we all want to go back.

We have been to this site playa de oyambre 3 times in 2002, 2005, & 2009 and we have enjoyed them all, cannot speak to highly enough of Francis amd his team. The site and surrounding area are great favorites of ours and we will be going back possibly in 2014

Ok it rains a bit but that's what makes the area so beautiful, give it a try you will not be disapointed. The beach is one of the best we have been on, and a trip to the Picos de europa is a fantastic day out
