Blieben 5 Nächte, sehr gepflegter Platz. Schattige, schöne Plätze. Sehr netter Empfang. Tolle Bucht unterhalb des Platzes (Schnorcheln!), sehr schöner Pool mit Liegewiese. Weg zu Sandstrand (Cala Montgo) etwas weiter, ca. 10 Minuten. Sanitär ok, Babybad könnte gepflegter sein. Schöner Wanderweg entlang Küste direkt ab Campingplatz. Bimmelbahn fährt nach L´Escala.

Third visit. Love the area and this site. Having been before one can get a bit picky and tend to compare with previous years. Reception staff have always been excellent however we have problems pre booking a pitch which when we turned up had been reallocated, no apology given just a shrug. Entering the site the barrier closed on both car and then caravan. Had to move pitch after one night to get closer to our friends. Most pitches are fine although several have big trees centrally located and others are soft sand meaning regular tow outs with the resident tractor, so select your pitch carefully as not all reception staff know which are sandy or have trees! Since our previous visit the regularity of cleaning of facilities has reduced but they are still well kept. The site staff start work early and talk loudly to each other and the ‘leaf blower’ starts early meaning no lay ins! The local shops are excellent and the beach is as stunning as ever with warm seas. Cycling in the area has always been good but signage and track quality seems to have improved significantly. We will definitely return.

Excellent site that lives up to its good reviews. Very pleasant camping pitches with a choice of terraced or flat depending on which side of the road you camp. Very conscientious staff both on the gate, reception and maintenance staff. The shower block was spotless and unusually there were toilet seats, toilet paper and soap. Very relaxing place with easy access to a cove beach where there are seven restaurants and a supermarket. Easy access on cliff walk to the town. Would highly recommend.

Stayed for a week, our third visit. Will come back again as we like the beach, rocky cove and the town.

We have stayed here for a couple of weeks for the last 3 years. The location is fabulous: a beautiful beach on one side and Rocky coast on the other side great for snorkeling or kayaking. Lovely restaurants within 100 meters. L\'Escala town about 5 mins on a bike or 20 walking. We would recommend this to all couples or families 5 star in my opinion.

arrived to a lovely welcome. spoke great English at reception. pitches sandy and a tad small. other guests seem to use all Thier alotted space and then park Thier car on the road way making it hard for you to get onto and out of your pitch. tolets and showers spotless. we stayed two nights. and this site is on our list to return to. beach bay is to die for. only disappointing thing is the heated!!! pool. it\'s colder then I would like.

Very friendly welcome from the reception staff. They all speak perfect English as well as other languages. The site is divided into two separate parts each with a swimming pool. Used the top swimming pool which has a stunning view of Roses Bay. We could pick our own pitch which was level & spacious. The toilet block was continuously being cleaned so was spotless. Roomy showers not push button. Toilets had seats, paper & soap for washing hands. Supermarket on site but another larger supermarket on way to beach which was very close. Lovely beach with a few restaurants surrounding the bay. Little train into L\'Scala only runs at the weekend from the middle of September. We stayed for a week and really enjoyed our time there.
