Castell Montgri Ė Touring Caravan

We have been to Castell Montgri many times but on this occasion rather than stay in a Static we took our own Caravan.

We booked on-line directly with the Site, paid a deposit at the time with the balance payable on arrival. Having booked in we were all issued with wristbands (More on those later) and we were escorted to our pitch and even helped to site our caravan by a helpful young man which was nice.

Because our caravan is over 7m long we had booked a bigger pitch, I soon realised this was a mistake and we could have quite easily got on one of the smaller pitches, one to remember for the future!

The pitch condition was good, clean and level and all facilities like electric hook up, water etc. Were very close by so no problems at all.

The Toilet/Shower block was close by too and Iíve got to say they were spotless, I have been to a few campsites in my time and these facilities rank right up there with the best, they were brilliant, as I said, they were spotlessly clean, the showers were nice and warm and plenty of them, so no queues at any time.

There was a nice Laundry on site that charged 8 Euros a load which sounds a lot but it is in fact a Serviced Laundry with 2 Lovely Ladies working there that did it all for you, no need to bother with the drying as you can just hang it out! If you had stuff that just needed freshening up then there where ample sinks to do this.

Castell Montgri was as expected with everything clean and tidy and all pools, bars and takeaways just as we remember them, a really great site with LOADS going on for ALL ages. We were located at the bottom right next to LíOmbra pool so it was great to nip in for a quick bite or for a swim etc.

In regards to the wristbands, Iím not really a fan of wearing them at all times but was told by reception itís not a problem for Adults as long as you have them on your person or nearby just in case they are needed (They are needed if purchasing WIFI etc. From reception) but they are insistent that youngsters wear them, in our case we had our 8 year old Grand Daughter with us, just in case they get lost on the park so they are easily identifiable which I thought was great, however, the biggest reason for the wristbands I think is the fact they have had a lot of bad press in the past about underage drinking, well the fact that the wristband clearly identifies someone under 18 has in one swoop cleared this situation up. I appreciate a 17 year old might not like this situation, but in past experience they were the biggest source of problem on the park, especially when the nightclub kicked out at 4. 00am!

Although I have given the review 5 Stars there are a few things that we did not so much like:

1) As we were in a Touring Caravan and it was really hot even at night we did not anticipate how noisy the site was, in a Static we would have just closed all the windows and put the A/C on, but with a Tourer we had to keep the windows open, LíOmbra last film finishes at 11. 00pm so we got the noise from that, but Panorama shows donít finish till Midnight and you really can hear them! So if you are planning to sleep before midnight take ear-plugs! In fairness, if it were not for the fact we took our Grand Daughter we would have gone elsewhere but itís the rough with the smooth I suppose!

2) The WIFI is not the best and quite pricey, this could really do with an upgrade.

3) The whole place is getting very expensive, itís not really a problem as there are numerous supermarkets etc. Really close by but if you were restricted to the site then itís going to cost you!

In summary, we would certainly return as it is by far one of the best Campsites on the Costa Brava if not Europe, would we take our Tourer back? Not if we were just a group of Adults as it is just too noisy, but would not hesitate if you have Children to keep entertained!

In the days before we purchased our Tourer we holidayed at Castell Montgri on numerous occasions (8 visits in all) and on each visit we found it fantastic.

The Park itself is very large with the vast majority Static although there are 2 Touring area's, the first at L'Ombra is large and I estimate has about 200 pitches with a mixture of sunny and shady spots and is right next to the lower facilities which are bigger than up at Panorama but quieter, the second is Panorama which is in the middle of the site and only opened during peak season which has no shade at all but is very close to the major night life and will be noisy till midnight every night, it is however right next to the biggest pool on site which is lovely, apparently it's the biggest in the Costa Brava.

The site as a whole is very clean and well attended to by the maintenance crews, the Reception is efficient and friendly and they speak most of the European Languages, English is no problem, it is 2nd after Spanish.

The site itself has loads going on and has enough to entertain all ages, we have taken 4 generations of our family at the same time and there has been plenty for each of them to do every visit, from Kids Clubs to Piano Bars and even and out door cinema, there's loads going on. There are also 3 pool complexes with the smallest being La Bassa which is right at the top of the hill, a bit of a hike to get there but well worth it as it is in a lovely setting.

The on site eating facilities are really quite good catering for everything from snack bars to sit down Restaurants, the food is ok, not brilliant but ok, if you want fine dining try some of the establishments in Estartit which is a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive.

There is an on-site Super Market which is really well stocked and not too badly priced, its great for your daily bread and essentials, but if you want a big shop drive into town to the Supermercat as its a lot cheaper.

In regards to Estartit it is a lovely little town with a beach to die for, sure, the town itself has a market on Thursdays and lots of shops to browse, Santa Suzanna is the main shopping street in town and is open till late at night and is really nice to stroll down, it has seen better days but these are tough times all around Spain but it has a lot of character and although it does have English Bars/Resturants which are lovely by the way, Benidorm it certainly isn't, so if that's your thing don't waste your time with Estartit.

In summary, we can't wait to get back to Castell Montgri but this time with our own little home on wheels, having costed our holiday for 2014 we will be paying around £400.00 for 10 nights in the main school holidays which is a clear £1200.00. Yes you read that correctly £1200.00 cheaper than any of the Key/Euro/Canvas Static's and we get the added bonus of 2 overnight stops in lovely France on the way there and back.
