Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Swift Kontiki 669 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

Some decent sized pitches, varying in shade and proximity to the main A7 road along the south coast.  We had a good sized pitch right next to the road (which wasn’t actually particularly disruptive), which did get some sun during the day but not often right by the van!

Is there water on each pitch?            

No – Mostly shared between 2 or 3 pitches. Very close.

What is the electric like?           

At least 10A – We had no problem in the 3 weeks we stayed

Drainage?     

Yes  – proper drive over site with washing facilities

What’s the site access like?        

Very good – easy access from the main road; small dedicated parking area on arrival

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Toilets:                             Good enough.  Several blocks available throughout the park.                                                                                                                                                                               Toilet paper provided? Yes                                                                                                    Showers:                          Again good enough.  Calv was happy to use them.

All facilities were cleaned at least twice a day.

What other facilities are there?    

2 swimming pools (1 indoor, 1 outdoor – only 1 open at a time)

Café/Bar; mini-market; reception; take away; restaurant; Indian restaurant (off-site, a 5 min walk); Sauna; laundry; outdoor gym; petanque; table tennis; kid’s play area; bungalows; social area

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

Yes.  Free in the bar area.  Not overly good reception. We have our own mobile capability now.        

How welcoming are they at reception and staff in general?  

Very welcoming and professional.  There is always somebody available to assist.

How much is it?     

With the ACSI card 19E per night (see here for dates) However, the longer you stay the cheaper the site’s own rates are – it was cheaper for us to use their own rates overall, we paid about 17Euros per night.

What’s the area like?            

10 min walk to a wonderful beach and the marina (Alberts is well worth a visit or 5!!)  There’s also an extensive boardwalk along the beach.  There are also a number of shops available in walking distance – unfortunately it’s not quite so easy to cycle as the road is the main A7, which is definitely not suitable for cycling on…!

We also visited Gibraltar, Camino del Rey, Frigiliana and Nerja.

There is an awful lot to see and visit in the surrounding area – although it is better to have a car.  On which note we hired one at a very good rate from reception.  Also the easiest car hire transaction ever!

 

 

           

Suitable for 5th Wheel Vans?    

Yes – there were a few there at the same time as us.       

More detail:

The Good:-

Tbh, after our initial disappointment on arriving we loved it here!

The Bad:-

We don’t like how the site allows 2-3 caravans per pitch during the Spanish kid’s holidays.

 The Ugly:-

Nothing at all 😊

Moving On:

From here we went to El Rocio just south of Seville.  An absolute must see!
