This site is the most enormous one and therefore has every facility and amusement a family could want but in November they are all closed other than the shop which opens in the mornings and supplies bread. Six check in desks give an idea of the size but again at this time of year only part of the site is open and of the fifteen or so vans parked there only six were occupied so it was really quiet. The pitches were reasonable and we were able to chose where we wanted and for E4 upgraded to a fully serviced pitch. The staff were all helpful. The facilities were clean as you would expect with so few using them. Five miles from the Escorial Palace and three from the Monument to the Valley of the Fallen this site was ideally situated.

After checking in at one of the six check in desks we were guided to our pitch by a man on a golf buggy. He ensured that the caravans were spaced out and not bunched together and asked us if we were happy with the location. We were.

This is a huge site and must get very busy during the summer. In May only about 30% of the pitches were occupied. Though it did get busy at the weekends when the Spanish arrived. You just have to accept that they like large gatherings and enjoying themselves. Good luck to them. Just accept this will happen.

Security if very good. Security patrol round the site at least once an hour. So, any noise does stop at 11pm.

The sanitary facilities were recently refurbished and exceptionally clean.

One of the large pools opened whilst we were there but it was a bit chilly. Indeed snow fell on the surrounding mountains whilst we were there.

The supermarket is well stocked and not expensive. The bar and restaurant are also worth trying.

The site is in a very good location with great views of the mountains. Be sure to visit the Palace at El Escorial.

This is a very big site which is very well managed. Facilities are of a very high standard and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Happy to recommend.

This is the biggest, and most well-organised, site we have ever stayed on! Reception has six check-in desks which were all busy when we arrived, a week before Easter. A man in a golf buggy showed us to our pitch, and he was careful to spread everyone out so we weren't all on top of one another.

The site is all on a level and laid out in a grid-pattern. Pitches are grassy and a reasonable size, and there are some extra-large ones for people with RV's. There are trees for shade and about half the pitches have permanent sun canopies.

There are well-separated areas for tourers, tent campers, bungalows and permanent caravans. As anyone who uses Spanish sites often will know, the Spanish love to go to campsites at weekends with their large families, usually staying in their own statics or bungalows, and they can be somewhat noisy - so it was a nice touch to have the touring area well away from the hubbub!

There is one large central sanitation block, very smart and clean, with roomy showers of the push-button type but with controllable temperature. The washing-up and laundry sinks are under cover and have hot water. Washing machines cost 3. 50 euros. Everything is fully enclosed and heated in winter.

There is a large bar and restaurant and plenty of entertainment and sporting facilities. There are 3 large swimming pools and one smaller children's one. The supermarket is large and there's also a souvenir shop in high season. Wifi is free but available only in the bar.

The surroundings are very pleasant, and look more Austrian than Spanish - mountains all round, lush green fields full of cattle, and even chalet-style buildings. There is a bus to Madrid but it's a long walk up to the main road from the campsite.

There is also a station in the town of El Escorial. If it's Madrid you want to visit, there are more convenient sites than this; the great attraction here is the huge monastery-cum-palace of El Escorial which is austere but impressive.

Another interesting place to visit is the Valle de los Caidos, not far from the campsite. This is where Franco had a vast mausoleum hewn out a mountain, to house his body and act as a memorial to the dead of the Civil War. As a monument to Fascism it's creepy and disturbing, and was almost entirely deserted when we were there.

Security on the campsite is fantastic. Staff drive round in vans or golf carts keeping an eye on everything.

My only complaint would be that there was very little tourist information available in reception, and everything was so well-organised it was a little impersonal.

Nevertheless, a very pleasant site that I would recommend. At 16 euros a night with ACSI it was good value.
