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.  A variety of sizes, none small.  Seemed to be separated by a tree each 🙂

Is there water on each pitch?            

No, but easily accessible in this compact area – 1 tap in the motorhome service point + another on the edge of the garden/seating area

What is the electric like?           

At least 16amp.  Very good – no issues at all

Drainage?     

Yes – there is a good motorhome service area.

What’s the site access like?        

Good – easy access from the main road, although there is a slight bump as you enter the site there is an area built so that you can swing in to lessen the impact of this.  The approach is through the plastic until you get to Albaricoques; the site is just before the little town.

Just drive in and somebody will appear at the office within minutes (if they’re not already there).

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Toilets:                             Gents on 1 side of the building and ladies on the other.  Very, very clean but the cubicles are a little tight!

Toilet paper provided? Yes                                                                                                             Showers:                         Perfectly acceptable but a little small – which meant that Calv showered in the van

What other facilities are there?    

Bins etc.

Lots of tables and chairs + a bbq

Washing machine – sorry don’t know the cost

Dish washing and laundry sinks

They sell blue! (A little more expensive and a little runnier than we’re used to, but the only place we’ve seen it recently)

Is there any internet; if so how much and how good?    

Yes –  Free! To be fair the signal on our own was a little hit and miss (for the 1st time this trip).  But the signal on the site wi-fi was actually pretty good

How welcoming are they at reception and staff in general?  

Excellent – really friendly

How much is it?     

13 Euros including electric – 10 Euros without.  Cheaper if you stay longer.  Excellent value for money

What’s the area like?            

Right on the edge of the Cabo de Gata Natural Park.  So on 1 side you have plastic (although tbf you can’t actually see much plastic from the site) and on the other wonderful views of the mountains etc.

Some wonderful days out to be had.  And of course if you wander up to the town you can find a famous street used in a scene in ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ 🙂
