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, although tbh we were probably a little big for the site (not an issue though as when we arrived we were the only people there!)

 

Is there water on each pitch?            

No – a few water points available.  We had to poke the hose through the hedge to reach the nearest one.

What is the electric like?           

6A – you just have to be a little careful to only use 1 device at a time1

Drainage?     

Yes                        

What’s the site access like?        

Very good – easy access from the main road, but need to stop and walk to find your pitch really.

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Toilets:                             Acceptable.  1 block and a couple of individual cabins.                                                                                                                                                                                   Toilet paper provided? Not when we were there                                                                            Showers:                          We didn’t use them as the hot water wasn’t working whilst we were on site

What other facilities are there?    

Swimming pool shared with the restaurant next door.  As we visited in mid-February this wasn’t open and we were unable to even access it to explore.

Café/Bar; mini-market; reception selling Alhambra tickets;  play park; terrace with wi-fi zone; launderette

 

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

Yes.  Free in the bar area.  Not overly good reception        

How welcoming are they at reception and staff in general?  

Not unwelcoming… however, could definitely have been better (we were there on Valentines Day, and think perhaps the lady hadn’t received an expected card…??)

How much is it?     

With the ACSI card 17E per night (see here for dates)                                     

What’s the area like?            

Lovely views over the Sierra mountains towards Granada.  Just 10 minutes from the city and 15 from The Alhambra Palace.

Calv went out for a bike ride (upsetting other cyclists as they slogged up the hills in all the gear).  He was impressed with the area.

We got held up in the taxi home from our visit to The Alhambra due a massive cycle race going through (nobody seemed to know about this though!)

               

Suitable for 5th Wheel Vans?    

No.       

More detail:

The Good:-

The location for The Alhambra.  Peaceful

The Bad:-

No toilet roll provided (this is a bit of a bugbear of mine).

Trying to get a drink or get served in the mini-market.  All the facilities are within metres of each other, yet we stood waiting by the bar for 5 minutes before giving up and going back to have a drink in the van (15m away…)

 The Ugly:-

Nothing at all 😊

Moving On:

From here we moved on to Cabopino where we were to stay for 3 weeks 🙂
