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.

This is a very well maintained site, staff can always be seen working on the grounds or cleaning the sanitary blocks. Showers give continuous hot water rather than the “push button” ones. Reception staff are multi lingual, helpful and friendly. We have stayed here twice and prefer to camp on the higher plots due to their proximity to the pool and tennis court. These are good sized plots and accessible for larger units.
The nearby beach at Cala Montgó is a treat with its clear blue sea and there are a handful of bars and restaurants along the front. The campsite has its own small shop, with a larger independent shop a few yards away.
The town of L’Escala is a pleasant walk away, with the old town just a little further, both are well worth a visit.
This is an ideal location for motorhomers, like us, that only have cycles to get about.
This is one of our favourite sites and I can thoroughly recommend it.

We didnt find the campsite easy to find as instructions in the book. Use address not postcode as it keeps wanting to take you in through the town centre not easy with a twin axel caravan. The staff on reception spoke very good English and were very helpful. They gave us a map of the site and let us choose our pitch. If you have a twin axle take the stone beach side as wider avenues. All on terraces sand pitches really nice. The main pool was not open which was a shame for the first week of June, the other pool was on the small side but who needs a pool with the beautiful beach just about 500 meters away. The showers I have to say were the best I have ever been in any where while camping - No stupid push button a proper lever. Well done and they were very clean. No entertainment. We have no children.
look like good spots facilities but not used and didn\'t eat on site. Good security men on duty around the site at night.
There is a lovely 40 min walk to L\'Escalla along the path on the stone beach side lovely. If you don\'t like heights dont take the foot path on the left of the beach very uneven and on the edge! We really enjoyed the site and will be back.

This site is split into two halves. Best to stop on the road between when arriving. Very helpful staff. For us the higher part away from the facilities was best as we have a cat and this area was quieter and more spacious. Easy access for large units. Regular bus/train into L'Escala. Good facilities on site. Ideal site for families and seniors. Will return.

What at first seemed to be a worryingly large site was in practice comfortable, quiet and did not feel at all large, even though all pitches were occupied. We had a very good size pitch, it was quite well shaded and reasonably screened. Very helpful reception staff. Certainly a repeatable campsite if in the area.

la situación del camping es muy buena. cala illa mateua conectada con el càmping ideal para snorkel, buceo, kayak... y cala Montgó a 3-5min caminando ideal para niños (excepto julio y agosto que está súper llena). gr-92 pasa por al lado del camping, muy bien para senderismo y running al lado del mar. Pero encontramos demasiados fijos (gente con caravanas como segunda residencia) permanentes en el camping. Muy mal no nos avisaron que la piscina grande aún no estaba abierta!! las parcelas poco (casi nada) césped. y algunas parcelas (las de los no fijos) muy lejos del baño. bien para fuera de temporada

We stayed here for three days and were immediately struck by the friendly and helpful ladies on reception. The pitches on the lower part of the site (sandy beach side) were spacious,level and mixture of shade & sun throughout the day. you will need a Euro 2 pin adapter to plug in as for most sites in Spain. Toilet facilities were spotless and powerful hot showers. Supermarket on site and a couple more on the short level
walk to the beach where also bars and restaurants. Swimming pool looked inviting but we preferred the beach! Would definitely stay here again as very relaxing and welcoming visit.

Arrunta, agian apur bat garesti. Animazioa ez da oso ona. Beste camping batzuetan animazioa hobeagoa ikusi dut. Campinga 2 zatitan dago, errepdi bat pasatzen da erditik. kotxe asko pasatzen dira.

We intended to stay for one week and stayed for three. This was at the beginning of the season and it was lovely. As we were leaving it was starting to get busier and structure were appearing on the beach, which I thought spoilt it a bit. 5 mins to sandy beach, ideal for children. Campsite facilities immaculate. Restaurants within walking distance and possible to walk to L'Escala, about 40 minutes. Will go again but not in peak season.
