We stayed for 3 nights - paid in advance to get free wifi. Wifi was pretty good and reached our pitch ok. We had a tent so were in the tent section - which we had to ourselves as there were mostly motorhomes and a few caravans on site.

The pitch was perfect for the tent - grassy with sand underneath. Well kept and separated by hedges. Electricity, water and bins were nearby. Not too far to the shower/toilet block but a bit of a walk.

The shower/toilet block was kept very clean. It is quite old but still nice enough and the showers were mainly good (one was a bit weak but once I knew I avoided that one).

The site is in an excellent location for visiting the national park and El Rocio.

We really enjoyed our stay and would have stayed longer if the weather had been better.

We keep saying we wont return as seen it all at El Rocio but back again.

Nothing changed at campsite, still good sized pitches facilities old but functional. Showers always good and hot and plenty of hot water in hand washing and dish washing areas. One thing that does put us off is there are always birds in rafters of facilities, hence bird poo on floors as previous review mentioned.

We found odd that site less than a third full yet they put all vans in pitches next to each other, makes it feel cramped when there really is loads of room.

The town was much busier than we have seen before, even in the week plenty of people around. Sunday is still the best say to visit to see festivals, crowds of people and all the little souvenir shops open.

Donana Park itself is still glorious. The lake in town is great for bird spotting. Another 20 minutes walk and you are at the Rocina visitor centre - wooden boardwalks between the bird hides and over some beautiful countryside. About 8 kn down the same road is another visitor centre Acebuche, again all the walks are on boardwalks, a wonderful afternoon out and a great little cafe to visit.

The beach town of Matalascanas is 10 km fro the site, a little old fashioned but the beach makes up for that. There is a promenade that runs for over 2 miles, lots of small cafes and bars - most closed in winter but we found several open. The beach is stunning, the waves a little high and maybe more suited to surfers but well worth visiting.

El Rocio has plenty to see and do in the area but you do need to use transport or bikes.

We stayed here for a week on our way to Portugal. The site is quite nice with sand pitches but the sand gets everywhere. The restaurant is ok but not cheap. We went on our first night and were the only ones in there. There is wifi in the restaurant and the outside seating area.

The toilets and showers are basic at best and I don't think they were cleaned the whole week we were here. Two cleaners came in each morning with buckets and cloths but goodness knows what they did. There was bird mess on the floor for days and dirty marks round the water in the toilets. The water in the showers is good and hot and wasn't on a press button.

Bread is available fresh every day and there is a small shop selling basics. There are two supermarkets in town.

The town is very different. Lots of places to eat and drink. We had a very good meal in the restaurant opposite the bus stop in town.

The lake is fascinating with masses of pelicans, flamingos, ibis and spoonbills and various other birds coming and going. There are hides if you walk anti clockwise round it and a visitor centre if you walk clockwise.

Because we were in a motorhome and had a dog we couldn't get out of town (no dogs on buses) and a week was more than enough to stay here.

We booked for 2 nights and stayed 8 which says it all! This is a little gem! Great site, surreal town! We were lucky enough to be there over Andalucua weekend when the town was transformed! The town has cashpoint and small supermarket with lots of bars and restaurants. Site shop does fresh bread and bar is good. Clean facilities and well laid out site. We will be back!

We used this site on way from Portugal to Spain. Well laid out site with clearly defined big pitches, Good toilet and shower facilities. Friendly and helpful staff. Stock up before you visit as supermarket in town is very small. Plan to visit over a weekend as the town comes to life on Sunday morning, it is a very short walk into the town which is just unique and like something out of a TV western. Sand roads, rails to tie up the horses, families meeting up to eat, drink and sing, horses being ridden walking through the town and 'promenading' just amazing and unique. We loved it.

Be aware that the site can get noisy on Saturday night as the long stay units get occupied by the families in preparation for Sunday.

This was our second visit to this site and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time, although being earlier in the year the weather wasn't as warm. We realised the toilet block isn't heated - no problem when we were here in March, but in January the early mornings can be a bit frosty before the sun warms up. However the plentiful hot water in the showers made up for it.

Prices seemed lower than last time - maybe as a result of Spain's austerity problems. The menu del dia in the restaurant was 10 euros, down from 12 on our last visit, and the washing machines were 3 euros, down from 3. 60. However the ACSI price had gone up from 15 to 16 euros. But if you stay 6 nights you get the 7th night free.

There has been an improvement in the village, which is only 5 minutes' walk, as a decent-sized supermarket has now opened. We were lucky to see a big religious parade on Sunday 29th, with drums, pipes and banners, horses and wagons, and one mass after another in the church.

A trip to the beautiful city of Seville with its Moorish architecture is a must, and just north west of Seville are the ruins of Italica, a large Roman town with an amphitheatre and some wonderful mosaics. It's also a short drive in the opposite direction to the coast, where the quiet resort of Matalascanas has a huge sandy beach.

All in all another very enjoyable stay at this site.
