Very friendly. Arrived in a downpour and had to stop overnight on the hard standing which was great as the normal spaces were well and truly sodden. By the next day all was again dry and we moved to a very spacious pitch. Whole site covered by WiFi Due to circumstances we returned there as well. Food in the restaurant is good for €11.50

We had a lovely 2 night stay here after arriving on the ferry from Santander. A generous pitch for our motorhome and car trailer. I enjoyed a morning swim in the pool cold but refreshing. the showers are lovely and hot and kept very clean. The lovely beach at Camillero was a short 10 minute drive away and we\'ll worth a visit.

Camping cómodo y ubicado en un entrono privilegiado, cerca del mar y la montaña. Parcelas amplias.

Se trata de un camping rodeado de naturaleza, siendo el entorno y la cercanía con Comillas... su punto más fuerte. Los sanitarios... son para mi su punto más débil, ya q son antiguos y están bastante deteriorados. Las parcelas son en algún caso muy escasas, a mí me tuvieron q reubicar ya q mi caravana de 6 metros no entraba. Luz 6A por lo q cuidado con los calefactores, ya q salta el diferencial. Piscinas correctas, parque de niños mejorable. supermercado escaso, restaurante correcto y ambiente muy familiar. Muchos de los instalados allí... son de los q están tres o cuatro meses allí fijos.

This site has separate areas for tourers and permanent vans - the latter was a complete mess ! There is some development taking place so builders\' vehicles buzzing around all the time. We were there before the season got under way so the touring area was fairly quiet BUT a group of around 30 teenagers were staying in bungalows on site and each evening they had a disco or other loud entertainment until well past midnight. Staff were friendly and the restaurant was ok but it was not the best site we have been on. Beware the rainwater gullies which have to be crossed to get on your pitch - they are very deep and we saw one van completely unhitched when the wheels went into the gully.
