General information

Campsite La Garrofa is a campsite with 100 touring pitches. During low season, between 01-01-2019 - 30-06-2019 and 15-09-2019 - 31-12-2019, the nightly rate is €18,- at one of the 100 touring pitches at Campsite La Garrofa in Almería (Almería).

Small and friendly campsite; lovely location, right by the sea so that you can sleep to the rhythm of the waves. With some luck you will see dolphins. Well-shaded in parts. The bus to Almería stops outside the campsite.

We had a very pleasant stay.
Plots are very cramped but acceptable.
Beach is on your doorstep.
We will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for four nights, small site in small bay, no problem with access as our van only 6.5m long, restaurant ok, drinks reasonable price, facilities a little dated but cleaned regularly, the beach is not sandy. Some of the permanent \"cottages\" a bit dilapidated and run down, however close to Almeria (bus stops on road outside campsite) some good walks through the mountains. Will stop here again.

Friendly site by beach. Buses at entrance. Good cafe/bar with food.
Shaded pitches with good facilities. We will go back to this site!

Stayed here for 3 nights. Fabulous location. Staff extra helpful and friendly.
Saturday evening karaoke was great fun.
Drinks good value.
Didn\'t try the restaurant.
Toilet and shower block, although could do with updating, were very clean and well cared for.
Getting onto the site can be a little tricky as it\'s in a bay/cove and fairly steep!
We will definitely stay here again and would have stayed longer if not on our travels.
Look forward to next year when we can stay longer.
Cannot commenting the accommodation as we are in our campervan.

We stayed 1 night here, the site was a bit tight for a larger vehcle 7.5m but the staff were helpful and recommended which pitch would be easier to access. The facilities were dated and basic but there was plentiful hot water and it was cleaned regularly. We found the beach restricted and not too inviting and walked in the hills which were picturesque despite the jettisonned builders waste. We didnt have an issue with cats as the dog was with us and we found the other site residents to be friendly and chatty. Overall the feeling of being in the valley and not having open space made us move on.

Small campsite which is ideal for a sightseeing trip to nearby Almeria....the pitches are small and quite difficult to access.
The facilities are old but clean.
Staff friendly

Taeke Oosterwoud, on this campsite in January 2015

Extremely poor site with no interest at all from staff. Peeling paint and broken canopies, very small uneven pitches and showers akin to victorian baths. Feels dirty and seedy and buses
hardly running due to rock blocking road for TWO MONTHS. Don't try it as the owners dont give a damn.
