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 – mostly tarmac.  Good size arranged in ‘streets’.  There are alot of them!!

Is there water on each pitch?            

No but available very close to all pitches

What is the electric like?           

Possibly 6A; it tripped very easily, but was better when we changed to a different socket.  The electric points were not good – wiring all over the place.  Plug in one and you have reverse polarity one way; plug in the one below it and reverse polarity is around the other way

Drainage?     

Yes – drive over at the entrance to the site

What’s the site access like?        

Excellent access from the road, and well laid out on-site.

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

3 large blocks with Separate ladies and gents. Extremely clean.

Toilet paper provided, but NO soap or TOILET SEATS!!

Toilets:                              Numerous cubicles

Showers:                          Numerous cubicles.  Decent size & very good.  A couple of bigger cubicles available

What other facilities are there?    

Bins and CWD

Dishwashing area (and laundry sinks)

Laundry (5 Euros wash, 4 Euros dry)

Reception

Large swimming pool, bar and snack-bar (closed out of season – from 31st October I think)

Supermarket, gym, children’s play area

Tennis

Bungalows and lodges for hire

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

Yes; charged, but I’m having no problem with ours.

We arrived on a Sunday out of season (after a challenging day..) so reception was closed, but there was a gent at the gate who took one of our passports and let us in.  We paid the following day and reception were very good 🙂

How much is it?     

We paid 17.00 Euro per night including electric, + 1.00 Euro per night local tax

What’s the area like?            

Looked to be a very interesting old town very close by.  Also close to Figueres, Girona and Pubol where Salvador Dali had a castle

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More detail:

We liked:-

The price and the people

The whole site – very well maintained and cared for (even the ‘permanent’ holiday caravans were well tended – clearly strict rules here)

Cleanliness of the facilities

We didn’t like so much:-

The electric offering – a bit of a hazard in the box!

We hated:-

Nothing

Moving On:

We headed on to our originally chose site in l’Estarit (it has an indoor pool); we couldn’t get to it on Sunday due to flooding..
