 This has been the most expensive site weíve stayed on during our 7 week trip. No doubt down to location as some pitches are on the low clifftop overlooking the sea and with a few steps down to a lovely sheltered bay.

A short walk away is the main beach.

It is also within 10 minutes walk to the old town of Comillas with its interesting streets, shops (including a medium sized Lupa), bars and restaurants. Menus de Dia were abound at around 15 euros.

Given the price the facilities are pretty basic but as previously mentioned itís the location that makes it so popular and capable of the fees charged.

As far as the clifftop part of the site is concerned there arenít any fresh water points dotted around and some pitches will need levellers and longer electric cables. As with many sites the dishwashing, hand laundry and washing basins only have a cold water supply. The only free wifi is around the bar area.

The main site is across the road as we only visited reception there canít comment on the facilities on that part of the site.

 As others have stated, the site is split into two, quite different, sections.

The more open, cliff top section, with some wonderful views over the beaches and sea, though many plots require considerable levelling apparatus!. And. The section within the walled grounds of an old house. The latter is very peaceful and belies its proximity to the town. Though it offers no distant views (just the garden walls. Both sections are well grassed. )

Ablutions were good and the bar/terrace area is charming, with a variety of sections/rooms splitting it up. Breakfast and drinks are cheap.

Comillas itself is well worth a visit. Medieval centre and lots of bars and restaurants. Busy and touristy in high season. But, a good one/two night stopper en roule along the coast or to the Picos.

If you want a lovely country embedded site. I'd recommend El Molina de Cabuerniga (a few miles further inland). For a good coastal site: Camping Las Arenas, a few miles further west along the coast.

 Booked as it was fairly close (less than 1 hour) away from Santander, our ferry arrived at 18:00 and we didn't want to undertake a long journey to a campsite (we are in a touring caravan).

Straightforward journey and campsite easy to find (you can see it as you come over the bridge into Comillas. Reception closed but we did find someone who pointed us in the right direction, he also recommended the Hotel Josein for a meal - its only 5 min walk from the campsite, we had a nice good value meal which was great after such a long day. We stayed on the coast side (there is another huge campaign field and facilities on the opposite side of the road).

Not many other people on site and those who were there seemed to have clustered themselves along the cliff top to get un unspoilt sea view, however we parked further down nearer the shower/loo block on flatter ground and had a superb sea view all week as the area in front of us roped off as the ground was soft following recent rain :o).

We loved the site, showers etc spotlessly clean, good supply of hot water, only down side was that they the shower cubicles were quite dark. Washing up sinks and washing machine & dryer available.

Route to Comillas town centre is very walkable either via the coast road or up the hill opposite the camp site, its a lovely town with a great atmosphere, lots of cafes and bars and some interesting buildings including a rather quirky house designed by Gaudi (Capricho de Gaudi - well worth a visit), the harbour is nice as well (and again walkable from the camp site.

Wifi only available at the bar/reception which is across the road, but there is a lovely shaded area where you can have a beer and catch up on the internet. Overall I would highly recommend this site, prob not great if you have kids as no play area etc.

The surrounding area and coastline is stunning, we visited most by cycle (Rabia, Rioturbio & St Vincente de la Barqueva) and were there for a week from 12th June

 A lovely site overlooking the sea. Grass pitches so be careful parking. New shower block, keep pushing the button or the shower stops and then the water has to heat up again.

Helpful owner, shop on site. Quite expensive still 27. 5 euros end of September!

Reviewer: Bazlam 15 reviews from this member

 We spent 16 nights here. Initial impressions were not favourable. As described before, the site is split by a fairly busy road. The beach side of the site was very full and crowded when we arrived at the start of September, and we were disappointed that we couldn't find a suitable pitch. Many seemed sloping and the majority of outfits (motorhomes predominately), were using levelling blocks. So we went on the other side of the road where the facilities are. Much better. The whole site was reasonably level, and much less crowded. In fact, towards the end of our stay, we were the sole occupants! The owner, Carlos, and his entire team (special thanks to the lady who ran the shop and provided us with fresh bread every day)were brilliant. The shower and toilet blocks were always immaculate despite constant influx of grass and sand from feet and shoes! The large sandy beach is less than a five minute walk, and the stroll into Comillas takes about ten. Comillas is a lovely pretty town with lots to see, including a very bizarre house designed by Gaudi. The university on top of the hill has a stunning interior and exterior, and is worth a visit, as is the town's cemetery. The information centre is good. Lot's of cafe's and restaurants to choose from. Some good, others not quite so good. You won't find any other nationality of food but Spanish (apart from one restaurant, Quo Vardis, an Italian which we could not recommend)and to be honest, the quality wasn't that great. Most set price 3 course menus offered pretty much the same selections. One dish we liked very much was fabes con almejas, a clam and bean soup. We enjoyed the Restaurante Filipinas and the beachside La Caracola (5 minutes walk from site). There are a couple of supermarkets in town for fresh supplies. Near to the site is the medieval town of Santilla del Mar which, although very touristy, is beautiful. The mountains are not far away, and driving to the top can be quite exciting! On one trip we were 1200 metres above sea level, and as we turned round a hairpin bend, a very large bull with huge horns was standing in the middle of the road! We visited the cave museum at Altamira, took the cable car at Fuente De among several other outings. All in all, a very nice scenic region, an excellent site and very friendly people.

 We consider ourselves so lucky to have found this campsite by the sea in the wonderful town of Comillas.

The campsite is on two sides of a minor road, one side has pitches by the beach, there are very nice separate mens and ladies toilets, showers, dishwashing facilities and a laundry on this side of the campsite. Extremely helpful wardens, nothing was too much trouble and they were always on hand to help with any queries.

The other side of the road, there were plenty of pitches in the grounds of a beautiful Spanish house with a walled garden. There are also facilities on this side of the campsite, together with a lovely bar where there is free wifi.

Carlos, the owner of this lovely property was a delight to meet, we highly recommend a visit to Camping Comillas if you are in this area of Spain, it is nearest to Santander but also not far from Bilbao.

Comillas has a palace, great fiestas in the typical Spanish squares, a very helpful tourist information office. The beaches are lovely, very sandy, a small harbour with a great fish restaurant.

 Very basic flat site with reasonable, clean facilities. Cross the road from the front gate and you're on a sandy beach - with some cliffs and rocks quite close at hand.

Had a small bar which was usually closed and a shop which was reasonable although the fresh veg/fruit left something to be desired. Bars/restaurants within easy walking distance whether up the hill behind the camp to the old town or along the road to the fishing village.

Good place to explore Cantabria from although a bit of a drive to the Picos de Europa.
