Reviewer: Caecampers 2 reviews from this member

 Just returned from a 2 week stay at the site. We had a fab time. My daughters 9 and 5 loved the pools and the location right on the beach was awesome. This was our first trip to Spain in a tent and had this site recommended to us, they were right.

The site is really big with lots of facilities, very big toilet/shower blocks, shops bars etc. Showers always clean and plenty of hot water with washing up areas always available. On site pizzaria was good, self service restaurant had good food at a good price. Supermarket well stocked and good value, had an adjoining bakery/croissanterie which was busy every morning.

The bars were nice with one having a rooftop terrace where a meal for four with wine was 50euro, overlooking the beach as well. Pitches were well maintained, hookup and water on the pitch, we also rented a fridge for 6 euro a day, very handy in the heat! ground was a bit stoney but pegs went in eventually.

It was very popular with europeans, German, Dutch, French and Spanish. Site was quiet after midnight, though one night I could hear a beach party going on! All in all a nice place and we will be going back next year!

 The site has wonderful facilities but does have that big corporate impersonal feel. The site is huge, being the size and population of a large UK village.

Site excellently located for beach sports, kite surfing, windsurfing etc. Beach cleaned regularly and sea safe for children.

Entertainment was poor but has been better in previous years.

Great facilities on site, supermarket, excellent pizzeria, bar, pools, playgrounds, clean single sex toilets and showers. Good activities for children with English speaking staff.

Nearby towns are well worth a visit, St. Marti, Escala, Estartit, Roses and just a bit further Barcelona and Girona.

Dont use the cash point, dreadful exchange rate.

Overall a good site, just a shame its 1200 miles from my home.

 A very large site that is about 40 minutes over the french border. Although it is large it is immaculate. The shower blocks are cleaned regularly and there are loads of showers that have no timers, The toilets have toilet seats and paper! Baths are available for babies. There is a laundry room and plenty of space for dishwashing.

The site is directly on the beach, which is also hugh and very clean.

There are plenty of playgrounds for the little ones and bicycle hire is available for the more energetic campers.

There are 4 swimming pools all with lifeguards and sunbeds.

On the site there are cashpoints as well as a pharmacy, souvenir shop, beach shop, book shop (selling English newspapers) and a large supermarket which we found cheaper than the ones in the town. There is a disco for teenagers and young adults, 3 bars (2 directly on the beach) and a pub. Restaurants and cafes are available until very late. There are also tennis courts and an internet cafe which also provides wifi from your pitch!

The pitches are very large with super pitches which have water, electric and drainage which are well separated by hedges and flowers. There is a separate dog area which has its own section of the beach with dog showers and poo bins and bags!

Everything you need is on site for a peaceful relaxing holiday and the nearby towns are lovely for an evening meal and stroll around some lovely shops.

I would well recommend this site for anyone as this is the first time we have been to Spain I would not have missed the experience.
