Really liked this site and received a very warm welcome. Pitch size and location of our pitch were very good and our fellow campers were very friendly. The toilet and shower facilities were some of the best we'd experienced in Spain - very spacious with plenty of hot water. The location of the site itself was great for visiting Cadiz via the catamaran/ferry about a five minute bike ride from the campsite. Lovely walks and cycle routes around. A wee bit disappointed in the restaurant on site, and the supermarket is only open during the summer months. However, the town of El Puerto de Santa Maria is on the doorstep with supermarkets and cafes/restaurants.

Large site very near the beach, very clean facilities and generally a well managed campsite.

There are different types of areas and pitches.

When we arrived we were directed to an area that was very very busy, cramped and quiet noisy, particularly at night.

However it was very shady and Cadiz can get very hot!

The next day we moved to a large open area which had loads of space and very large pitches.

There is a water ferry about 20 minutes from the site that takes you into lovely Cadiz.

I would go there again but opt for the large open area

It's five years since we were last here and not a lot has changed. Last time we were here in Spring, so it was busier. This time it was a bit quieter, so we had a pitch nearer to the shower block, which is not heated although there is plenty of hot water. There were a number of people of various nationalities staying here for Christmas, although as far as I was aware there was no entertainment. However we only stayed a few days so couldn't really judge.

We enjoyed a trip to a bodega in Sanlucar de Barrameda, one of the three sherry towns (we'd visited the others last time. ) Sanlucar is the home of Manzanilla, a delicate sherry which is said to taste slightly salty because of the nearby sea.

The awkward laundry arrangements haven't changed, and for long stays are a lot less convenient than the self-service launderettes found in most campsites.

On the whole I wouldn't want to spend the winter here, but for a short visit it's fine. The town is interesting, a real Spanish town and not at all touristy. There's a very ornate cathedral, with several storks' nests on the roof (and in December, they were all occupied!)

We paid a reasonable 16 euros with our ACSI card.

Take note of the height limit on entry of 3. 3 metres. If you exceed that height or are a wide unit there is another entrance which will be opened upon request. We paid 20 euros per night in February 2012 for two adults and the unit which seemed expensive taking everything into account.

The shower block was modern and clean. However for some it might be a long walk to the chemical disposal point - the only one we discovered was by the Motorhome dump. If you have a medium to large outfit you can be accommodated - but watch out for the low walls! Some might say the site resembles a large car park and units do seem to be very close together with an obvious effect on privacy.

Great position with adjacent cycle tracks and an attractive promenade which hosts a weekly market close to the site on Tuesdays. The ferry to Cadiz is within walking distance (about 25 minutes). We used a Mercadona supermarket about 15 minutes walk from the site.

In our view a splendid site for a short stay taking in a visit to Cadiz. However we met people who had stayed for several months and were quite content.

If we were to visit Cadiz by motorhome again we would certainly think about staying here.

This is a large municipal campsite which is well-maintained but a bit noisy. There is also some noise from the adjacent public sports complex, going on until 10 or 11 at night occasionally. The pitches are grassy/sandy and of good size. The toilet block is excellent, clean, spacious and modern. There is a well-equipped launderette but to gain access you have to get a chitty from reception then find one of the cleaners and get her to let you in - a bit of a hassle! There is an on site supermarket but only open high season. The bar and restaurant were open in low season and were popular with the locals. There's no wifi, but free internet use in reception, or in the bar it's 1 euro for 20 minutes. There's a beach nearby but the main attraction of this site is its position in the famous 'sherry triangle', and its proximity to Cadiz. The town of El Puerto itself has a number of sherry bodegas including Osborne, which is well worth a visit - loads of tasting! Jerez is not far away and as well as more bodegas - we enjoyed the tour of Tio Pepe - it also has the fabulous Andalucian Riding School which puts on a wonderful show of horsemanship on Tuesdays and Thursdays. From El Puerto you can also take a short ferry ride over to Cadiz which is a city with a fascinating history.
