Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Bessacarr 769 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

Good – hardstandings.  Fairly good size for the ACSI pitches, but there are bigger pitches available if you need them.  They’re not actually that much more expensive (about 4 or 5 Euros)

Is there water on each pitch?            

Yes

What is the electric like?           

16A – BUT only 4kw per day included in ACSI price – excess charged at 60c per kw.

Drainage?     

Yes – on each pitch so excellent if you have a pipe.  Also a big drive over drain by the car wash just outside the entrance to the site (where there are also 2 overnight pitches available)

What’s the site access like?        

Excellent

What are the Sanitary facilities like?   

There are 4 toilet blocks available (which is more than you would normally see for a site this size), 3 old blocks and 1 pretty much brand new (for which you’re given a code).  The new block is very nice, but I really don’t like toilets and showers with any suggestion of see-through doors (which are in all the other blocks!)

Very clean, although the new block is already starting to show signs of use.

Toilets:                             Numerous cubicles with toilet paper, toilet seats and soap provided 🙂    Also sockets available

Showers:                          Numerous cubicles.  Decent size & very good.  Push button operation

What other facilities are there?    

Bins and CWD

Dishwashing area (and laundry sinks)

Laundry (4 Euros wash, 3 Euros dry) – located just outside the entrance; 3 washing machines and 2 driers available

Reception (24 hour)

Swimming pool

Bar and snack-bar (cooked takeaway chicken available + pizza & pasta, breakfast, sandwiches, ice-cream & cakes

2 restaurants (1 not open at the moment – not during the week anyway; we ate at the other last night – had a lovely evening)

Hairdresser

Dog shower

Supermarket, children’s play area

Bike hire; car wash;

Cash machine

All open out of season 🙂

A small number of apartments for hire

Size:               161 camping pitches; 30 apartments

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

Yes; free and not bad at all. I also had no problem with ours – I wasn’t aware of the free WiFi until another camper told me…  (i.e. this information isn’t automatically shared!)

Excellent

How much is it?     

We paid 19.00 Euro per night including 4kw electric, + 1.00 Euro per night local tax

What’s the area like?            

Located on a beautiful beach (with even nice beaches within 5/10 minutes on your bike)

About a mile walk into town, where you will find more bars.  On the way is a Lidl (also Aldi/Consum and Mercadona in town).

Personally I would stick to the beachfront – there are plentiful opportunities for drinking and eating in this area.

We also cycled and ended up going ‘off-road’ and cycling through orange groves (they’re everywhere) and even sampling a couple of the oranges (naughty but nice 🙂 )
