Date of Visit: February 2019 Unit:  Tent
Reviewer: Razorrog 1 review from this member

 We're staying here whilst we search for our new home. The access to pitches is a little tight for larger vehicles. If you have a tent you will need nails not tent pegs.

That said it's a very friendly place with fresh bread available daily and a vegetable seller once weekly. The tapas is very good. The restaurant has a limited menu but it's very good value.

Like most sites it has its quirks (not putting toilet paper down the toilet is one) but all in all a great place to stay almost on the beach plenty of walking routes up the valley and only 30minute walk to bustling Almerķa.

 Touring caravan, avoid, far too small even for the smallest of outfits, is in the shade after about 2pm, pitches are ad hoc. Lots of Brits in small campers with dogs. Beach is awful. Better places either side on the coast road or on A7

Reviewer: DHut 5 reviews from this member

 Camping La Garrofa is tucked in a small cove right by the beach, about 5Km West of Almeria town. It is clearly signed from Almeria, just stick to the coast road. The entrance and on site manoeuvring could be difficult for large vehicles - not recommended for towing caravans. The pitches have electric hookups and awnings to protect from the sun, in what is one of the driest, hottest areas of Spain. The beach itself is nothing special.

The facilities are fairly basic but include toilets, showers, a washing machine, and wash up area. Unfortunately hot water was not available at the time of my visit. There is also bar and small shop. The reception staff speak good English and were helpful. Wifi is charged at 3 Euros per day, or 8 Euros for a week, but is slow.

Almeria's Alcazabar, possibly the best surviving Moorish fortification in Spain, is free to visit for EU citizens and affords great views of the town and coast. The wider area is famous for it's cave towns and the filming of countless Spaghetti Westerns. The landscape is impressive.
