Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Bessacarr E769 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

Very good.  A variety of sizes, but all decent – we had no trouble pitching up

Is there water on each pitch?            

No.  This is actually the only thing that lets the site down.  The only tap that can be used to fill up is in the motorhome service area (in the car park).  There are plenty of taps to fill up containers (all push button)

What is the electric like?           

At least 16amp – possibly more.  Very good – we had no problems

Drainage?     

Yes – a drain in the car park.  Not really suitable but does the job!

What’s the site access like?        

Very good – easy access from the main road.  This is a fairly new town and laid out in grids.  Head for the Area Recreativa de Sierracilla, which is situated immediately behind the campsite (and worth a wander)

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Toilets:                             2 blocks right next to each other.  Use the 2nd.  Calv thought it was hilarious that the washing machine and washing up sinks were located in the 1st block.  In the ladies…!

Toilet paper provided? Yes                                                                                                             Showers:                         Good, but needed a proper clean really.  Clean enough, just not cleaned properly.

What other facilities are there?    

1 swimming pool – lovely (but closed while we were here)

Restaurant/bar – up an impressive set of steps 🙂

Sauna

Washing machine (3.50 Euros – use coins, i.e. you don’t have to go to reception for a token)

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

Yes.  Free in the bar area.

How welcoming are they at reception and staff in general?  

Very good.  Not much English spoken but very accommodating.  We weren’t charged to take the little car in even though we should have been – I think because I asked in my broken Spanish!

How much is it?     

16 Euros with ACSI

What’s the area like?            

Actually we loved it.  Borders the Area Recreativa de Sierracilla; within cycling distance (although we drove and would do so again) of the lake at La Fuente de Piedra (where there is a huge colony of flamingoes), and just north of Antequera and El Torcal.  If you only have time to have 1 day out, make it a full day out at El Torcal; take a picnic and your walking boots.

Very nice 🙂

We headed back to the coast for a few nights free parking at La Cala de Mijas (mainly to see friends, but also to do some shopping in Iceland at Fuengirola!)

Would we return??

Absolutely 🙂
