Friends we met on the way in Spain recommend this campsite to us. Glad they did, it is a wonderful site. Friendly helpful accomodating staff. Restaurant on site is lovely. Small shop is handy but maybe best to stock up with main goods before you arrive. We stayed longer than planned. Lovely coastal walks along volcanos. We did walk from Los Escullos to San Jose beautiful scenery and treated ourselves to a lovely late lunch in San Jose. Very peaceful mind you it is January. Other visitors from all over Europe very helpful and friendly. Will definitely return later this year.

Lovely value for money site. Nice staff. Need more/updated sanitaries but a smashing site they are obviously on a mission to improve the site and doing a great job, the new pool is superb.Would recommend and return but stock up on meat before coming if you have limited transport available.

Lovely campsite. After passing acres of plastic Cabo de Gato is an oasis. There is a walk to a beach from the site We walked to San Jose on a marked route over cliffs. It was quite strenuous and some scrabbling in parts. But beautiful views
when we got to the site and the pool was fantastic, however come the weekend it was overrun with youngsters. There was a school trip I think and they had a buffet in the restaurant for their meals which meant the service not very good. The menu Del dia was nothing better than ordinary.
Sanitary facilities were fantastic,cleaned regularly

We have enjoyed our stay here. Superbly run campsite in a stunning location, about eight km from San Jose where you will find supermarkets and restaurants. It is also near to La Isleta, a small fishing village along the coast with plenty of restaurants. Pitches are large with water and some shade if required. Full uninterrupted wifi coverage across the site. Will be back.

Superb site in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The facilities were all excellent. The pitches were big enough. The bar and restaurant were friendly. An oasis of beauty in an an area of Spain marred by acres of agriculture under plastic.

We love this site for the walking in clean fresh air and beautiful rugged surroundings. Our experience is of a very friendly easy going site. Travelling around the Cabo de Gata National Park is straightforward in a motorhome with plenty of areas to park. The site itself has everything you could wish for. The shower block is clean and modern and has plenty of hot water. The free Wi-fi is excellent and available across the whole site. The shop is well stocked with supplies. The staff are particularly helpful and speak excellent English. If you enjoy the great outdoors then this site is for you. We will be back!

What a jewel this campsite is? If only it could have non stop sunshine and be set alongside a sandy beach like the one at nearby San Jose it would get rave reviews and be rated as exceptional. However, then it would lose its' desert appeal as it would be swamped with clientele and full up all the time. As it is the facilities on offer come highly rated with 20amp electricity and brilliant WiFi but the location can only be described as very natural and isolated with the nearest Supermarket some 12 miles away.The water provided is desalinated and therefore care must be taken to flush out Alde heating systems regularly with fresh water. There is a shop on site that provides for bread and croissants and most of the necessary essentials but it falls short of the feel good factor of a Mercadona or a LIdl such as are located at San Isidro.
The staff at the Oasis Bar are nothing short of wonderful with character and personalities to match and the ladies at Reception are very attentive and will do everything they can to help out in resolving a problem. Special mention has to be made regarding the barman Xavi with Elena and Lola at the Oasis. They are just GREAT! I would also like to mention the cooks from the kitchen but I did not learn their names.
What a find this Campsite is. Well done to all who make it so well organised!! Just GREAT!!

We love this site! The walking from here is exceptional. Use of the 1:25 000 local map, available from reception for 1 Euro, helped us find the footpaths!
Site is well maintained with hot water available at each sink.
The best free internet we have ever had. Good enough to FaceTime video.
Good sized pitches all with water.
Will be returning!

Decided to come here on the 7 for 6 night stay and it was on our way to the south... We are very glad we did. The site is quiet due to being November... Lovely and clean with excellent bathroom, washing facilities etc and the pitches are great also with own water next to our van. Very quiet at night I guess this is because it low season. We would defiantly come back when passing this area again.... Thank you for a lovely week.

Stayed here to visit the area which is beautiful! Booked for 3 nights to begin with and ended up staying ten!
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful both in the reception,bar,shop and on site!
Spaces easynto get into and given the opportunity to choose our own pitch!
The toilets/showers and all public areas were exceptionally clean.
The swimming pool was beautiful, although alittle cold due to the time of year!
We visited lots of the beautiful it's and little towns around the area, they are very accommodating towards campervans..
Would definitely visit again and recommend it as a site.
