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

What are the pitches like?                

V. good.  Decent size.  HOWEVER, you want to be turning left from reception rather than right… Right takes you towards the ‘shanty town’ which is preceded by pitches that are basically on wasteground.  They still have their own shower/toilet block, but it’s not a nice area.  The contract between the 2 areas really could not be starker.  If we hadn’t been able to move after 1 night we would have left – as it was we extended our stay!

Is there water on each pitch?            

No, there is 1 tap in the motorhome service point meaning that you need to move to fill up properly.  There are a few water fountains dotted around though for drinking water

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 1 way street – note: it is the 2nd site along the street (the 1st is Puzol)  Onsite access is also very good

Reception is on the left as you enter and they are very good

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Toilets:                             2 blocks with plentiful cubicles.  Cleaned several times a day

Toilet paper provided? Yes  – also soap, but no hand driers                                                          Showers:                         Generally acceptable but a 1 row seems to only have scolding hot water available (in the gents at least), and tonight Calv had problems getting any hot water on the other row.  Our neighbours tried later and had no problems.  He did say it was a little hit and miss overall.

Other Facilities:

Bins etc.

BBQ area

Washing machine and drier (4Euros and 3 Euros respectively)

Dish washing and laundry sinks

Restaurant/Bar

Small supermarket

Swimming pools + slide

Tennis court  /  padel  / football pitch  / table tennis

Childrens play area (3 slides and 2 swings..) ;  mini-club

Free shuttle bus to the railway station for visiting Valencia

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

Yes –  Free! Not a brilliant signal although our own was good

How welcoming are they at reception and staff in general?  

Excellent – really friendly and efficient

How much is it?     

16 Euros on ACSI.  We had 7 nights for the price of 6

What’s the area like?            

Very close to the beach (the site’s website says 100m but I’d say it’s a little further!)  About 5 mins walk from the gates of the site.  Very nice beach with a few opportunities for eating and drinking

Lots of opportunities for cycling along the many, many quiet agricultural roads which surround the site.  I also found it easy for running

Suitable for 5th Wheel Vans?    

Probably not (unless you go down the other end of the site – in ‘the ghetto’)

More detail:

The Good:-

The nice end of the site

The feel of the site

The welcome

The facilities

The area

Free shuttle to the train station

What could be improved:

The ghetto and the shanty town for residents – really just needs tidying up

 We really didn’t like:

The ghetto and the shanty town.  Luckily once installed at the other end of the site these were out of sight – it was as if you were on a different site completely

Moving On:

We’re starting our journey home and heading towards Zaragoza

Would we return??

Yes
