Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Swift Kontiki 669 tag axle – 8.56m) For this site it’s also just for the Motorhome area

What are the pitches like?                      

Good.  There is room for about 8 motorhomes.  The area has it’s own separate entrance which is locked and secure.  There is then a gate to access the main site (and all the facilities).            


Is there water on each pitch?    

 No, but is in easy reach beside the gate           

What is the electric like?  

Good.  With the ACSI card you only get 4kw, but you have the means to monitor what you’re using – and we weren’t charged anything extra.            


There is a drain by the tap.  We empty our waste into the bucket and then into the drain.                                   

What’s the site access like?      

Good.  There are a number of 1 way streets but these are easily navigable.      

What are the Sanitary facilities like?     A little dated, but perfectly adequate

Toilets:                                              Clean                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Toilet paper provided?             Yes                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Showers:                                           Showers:                  Clean, if a little dated

What other facilities are there?    

Bar; swimming pool; laundry; barbeques          

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

Yes, free in the bar & reception area. Buy tickets in reception for use on your pitch. It was fine.              

How welcoming are they at reception and staff in general?  

Very friendly, welcoming and helpful.

How much is it?            

17 Euros per night with the ACSI card, including 4kw of electric. However, we weren’t charged any extra.                              

What’s the area like?            

The immediate area is residential, with many 1 way streets. To get to the seafront (about 10 minutes away) you cross a fairly busy road (it’s not a problem at all), where you’ll find bars, a lovely beach, a cycle path and the tram to Alicante in 1 direction and Benidorm/Barcelona in the other.                  

Suitable for 5th Wheel Vans?      


More detail:

We chose to use the motorhome area as we didn’t really like the available pitches within the site itself. There appear to be a fair number of ‘campers in residence’, with the associated extensions to their units…

The Good:-

You are able to monitor your electricity usage. Your area is secure (the gate is locked and you need to be let in and out – with your van that is!)

The Bad:-

Not the campsite’s fault, but there were a number of dogs in the houses across the road – they would bark late into the night.

The Ugly:-


Moving On:

We moved on towards Cartagena from here, ending up in Islas Plana
