 We stayed here for 2 weeks.
The site is very well kept with excellent services and facilities. The toilet blocks and showers all look recently renovated new. There is a well stocked shop, a very nice bar and restaurant overlooking the lake.
The pitches are not particularly big and you may struggle with a twin axle sized van. The pool areas (there are 2 pools) are lovely and clean with plenty of grassy areas around and plenty of sun beds. There is a nice bar and snack bar area around the fun pool. There are no restrictions on shorts type bathers here. Weirdly though it shuts from 1 to 3pm !
In regards to the lake, it is right on the lakeside but there are only small pebbly beaches with site access, take footwear in with you. There are stunning views of the lake and consider it is worth hiring a speedboat from the site.
Consider a visit to Salou, very close by. Stunning with wonderful restaurants. If you are interested in opera, Verona is close by and it has an amphitheatre. Beware Carmen was 4 hours log, my wife didn't tell me that bit !

 Part of the Caravan Club portfolio though did not book in advance but luckily there were able to squeeze us in.

Site facilities very good - pool with jacuzzi - closes between 1pm and 3pm every day - but the lane swimming pool remain opens.

Toilet blocks very clean - press the green button, and if the red button comes on - you have 7 minutes of hot water. Toilet roll and hand soap is supplied in toilet area. My only concern was the floor on the shower area was so slippery when it was wet.

Lake lovely bit rocky getting in but once in was warm.

Bar and restaurant, with spectacular views of Lake Garda. 1 small beer was 5 euros, so a bit price, but they had a good range of take away pizzas ranging from 5 to 8 euros.

There was a mini club for small children and we did see the majority of families had little children (that tended to wake up very early!) as oppose to us with teenagers; so if you do have young children this site would be ideal.

There was no other organised activities and no evening entertainment.

 We stayed here at this lovely site in Lake Garda for 2 nights both ways to and from Ca' Savio on the Venice beaches in Italy.

Many years ago we frequently stayed at their sister site Camping Fontanelle, just down the road in the village of Moniga del Garda. The site is owned and run by the Cavazza family who also own huge tracts of Olive groves along the lake (you can buy their olive oil on site) and the only island on Lake Garda which has it's own castle and can be clearly seen from the site. The site often runs boat trips to the island in high season.

The site is extremely well kept and clearly benefits from investment in it's services and facilities by the owners. There are 3 lots of toilet blocks and showers all looking recently renovated or fairly new. There is a medium sized but well stocked shop with fresh bread and UK newspapers and even a few English books! There is a nice bar and restaurant/Pizzeria with take away facility available.

The pitches are not huge though and there is only one motorhome service point which is out in the main carpark so make sure you fill up before you go to your pitch. Be careful when travelling around the site in a motorhome as there are low branches and some fairly tight and narrow roads! If you book before, request a pitch close to the reception and shop areas (although some there are tight too) as it's when you further up into the site you get the problems.

The pool areas are lovely and clean with plenty of grassy areas around and plenty of sun beds. There is a nice bar and snack bar area around the fun pool. There are no restrictions on shorts type bathers here.

In regards to the lake, the site is right on the lakeside but there are only small pebbly beaches with site access. However, a short walk out of the site to your right leads to a 'town' beach which we didn't visit but were told is larger. There are stunning views however, from the site with lots of boats racing around out on the lake and it is worth hiring a speedboat from the site which they launch directly into the lake for you. Bear in mind you need to book them well in advance as they are very popular!

All in all a lovely, picturesque site with great facilities with only one downside and that is, some (but not all )of the young reception staffs' attitudes which could border on the downright rude at times!
