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?
Lovely pitches. All the same size – a good size at that.
Is there water on each pitch?
What is the electric like?
16A – perfect
Yes, on every pitch
What’s the site access like?
Excellent – broad access and wide roads on the site.
What are the Sanitary facilities like?
Toilets: Fantastic. 2 blocks – only strange thing is 1 soap dispenser and 1 hand drier in each block (at opposite ends of the 10 sinks) Toilet paper provided? Yes Showers: Excellent
What other facilities are there?
Swimming pool. Bar. Café-bar. Launderette. Petanque. Car & van wash. Shop (tiny). Reception. Multi-sport court. Motorhome service area. Chemical toilets.
Is there any internet; if so how much and how good?
How welcoming are they at reception and staff in general?
Very welcoming, friendly and efficient
How much is it?
With the ACSI card 15E per night (1/1-30/6 & 1/9-31/12)
What’s the area like?
Not as taken with the immediate area as we were with the campsite. We did cycle into Balerma itself but wouldn’t return. Although the Consum supermarket on the outskirts was useful (and okay).
Suitable for 5th Wheel Vans?
Yes – probably paying for 2 pitches though? There were 2 there when we were staying. Worth asking the site.
The fact that they appear to have asked people what they want before building the site – it’s only a few years old. However, if you cycle in the opposite direction you find an old castle (not open on Mondays – when we, of course, visited!), and further along the marina of Almerimar, which is worth the ride.
The toilets are exceptional
The bar is good, if a little expensive (there’s not really any competition!)
The pitches are excellent
Not the campsite’s fault, but relevant nonetheless – the immediate area and the beach isn’t overly nice either.
Only 4 kw of electric is provided with the ACSI rate. However, the extra charges were very reasonable – it was a shame that you had no means of monitoring your usage though.
Nothing at all 😊 (except Balerma…)
We moved on to Granada to visit the Alhambra Palace.
Would we return?
Yes – if the site was located somewhere else!
