Questions:- (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Bessacarr E769 tag axle – 8.56m)
What are the pitches like?
Excellent. Plenty of space to park out the back + at least a dozen at the front (use these only if the back area is full up – although they are perfectly acceptable, they’re just nearer to the road)
Is there water on each pitch?
No, but fill up either in the motorhome service point or on the road to the rear area
What is the electric like?
Very good – our friends had no issues at all
Yes – there is a good motorhome service area.
What’s the site access like?
Good – easy access from the main road – turn onto the road beside the area and then left into the area
Just drive in and the manager will likely appear at your side within minutes – we have never had such a warm and friendly welcome 🙂
What are the Sanitary facilities like?
Toilets: Excellent. Ladies and gents in the same room (1 shower and 1 toilet each), + a foot wash (we think), hand basins and a fully stocked first aid kit. There was a separate changing area provided
Toilet paper provided? Yes Showers: All very clean
What other facilities are there?
Indoor washing up area within a kitchen diner type set up. Including 2 microwaves and a TV
Washing machine and drier – sorry don’t know the cost
Motorhome service area
Is there any internet; if so how much and how good?
The website says there is wi-fi but we were using our own so didn’t test this out
How welcoming are they at reception and staff in general?
Excellent – really friendly. Best welcome we’ve had in Spain. The family lived on site and had 3 young boys who all said ‘hola’ with a smile when they saw us. 1 of them also played Steve at table football (having given him the side that had an ‘injured’ player!!
How much is it?
14 Euros without electric – 17 Euros with. Cheaper if you stay longer. Excellent value for money
What’s the area like?
There is a decent walk/ride from the site – like a loop off the main road and back
About 20-25 minutes on the bus to Cartagena. The bus-stop is in Residencial Buenes Aires about half mile along the road (you can’t miss it!) It cost about 1.20 each to get into the city (we got off at Plaza de Espana)This time we wandered around a bit more of the little village and even found that there is a bar! We also found a little shop – so it was worth the wander 🙂
Suitable for 5th Wheel Vans?
The site itself
The feel of the site
What could be improved:
It’s a work in progress – there’s talk of a cafe and terrace and various other facilities
We really didn’t like:
Would we return??
The site – yes absolutely. Highly recommended 🙂
