This campsite is fabulous ... cannot understand the negative reviews ! However, the toilet/shower block is brand new, so cannot comment on the old facilities . We have travelled round Spain for 3 months this time and the facilities are by far some of the best we have encountered . The site is in a fantastic location , at the foot of a mountain , near to lovely golden beaches, villages, towns , stunning scenery etc. The local town of Castro-Urdiales is just beautiful - 6km away. Yes , the local Spanish families use the site at the weekends and holidays - but let’s just remember, we are the visitors, not them . We will definitely come back here !!

Looked like a travellers site. The toilet block was huge, however, only had one button to press for the water in the shower which came out BOILING, the water burnt my feet.
The neighbourhood dogs were barking and howling all night long, furthermore the sound of the road was so loud it echoed along the side of the hills down to the campground. Would definitely not recommend, not to the normal ACSI standards.

This campsite in our view is underrated. We spent three nights here upon arriving in Spain so have nothing to compare it to. Staff very friendly however do not seem to be aware that the Camino de Santiago passes the gate of the campsite. We found it by accident on day 2 and walked for hours. On day 3 receptionist ordered a taxi for us and we walked back to Islares - beautiful walk. Islares itself is very scenic. Really enjoyed the few days. Can’t review all categories as they are not applicable to us but if you like walking, this is a lovely area.

Thought we had arrived at site for travellers. The toilet facilities were clean but extremely dated the near by beach and harbour were nice. Wish we had stayed in Haro and as only took half a day to get from there to here plenty of time for the ferry.

Good location near a lovely long sandy beach which allows you to easily visit Bilbao and Santander, and a little further to the Picos de Europa. A very relaxed campsite and reception staff very friendly. The toilet/showers block near our pitch was a little dated but always very clean and functional (there is a newer block at other end of the site.) Grass pitches well maintained but not large.

Overall a good campsite, open pitches and easy access. Shower and toilet facilities are dated but clean and functional.
No pool but access to a beautiful beach is only 100 Mts away. Swimming is safe.

7.0

Travelling party: Couple

A convenient first night stop on arrival at Santander being just off the auto via. Friendly welcome from Luis Cueva the campsite manager who allowed us chose a double pitch as we did not wish to unhook the van. Clearly an old site which, in an ideal world, could do with an upgrade. However the facilities were clean and well maintained. Hot water was limited and only cold water available in the wash basins. A cafe, immediately outside the front gate, served basic food and was cheerful with locals. Pitches are well shaded with a large proportion taken up by permanent residents who although clearly enjoying themselves, at some volume, were never intrusive. There is, reportedly, a nice sandy bay closeby with water sports although we did not visit. A good overnight stop but not for much longer.
