On all visits we could not fault our accommodation and the reps are always very accommodating and helpful. Colin who was the venue rep for both 2012/2013 was great. We loved the picturesque totally unspoilt... More

Dear family, Thank you for your opinion on Camping Playa Joyel, Noja and our beach. All your opinions are much appreciated.

We were looking for a part of Spain which is not overrun by tourists. We wanted the local feel and be near the coast. We had been recommended Playa Joyel by friends and decided to stay in a large static caravan. It’s easy to get to from either Santander or Bilbao airports as we had hired a car. We had... More

Booked this online about 8 months in advance requested 2 large pitches together as we were travelling with family and this was all in order when we arrived. Pitches varied in size and with or without borders depending on what you paid. We had large hedges all round giving plenty of shade. Pitch was large enough for our caravan, awning... More

Approximately 45 minutes from the port of Santander ferry terminal, first impression was the camping pitches looked scruffy with quite a lot of older European vehicles and caravans, pitches are close together with narrow lanes. However if you look through this the site is well organised and well equipped and a superb beach on the door step for body boarding.... More

Having initially thought that a large campsite was not really our kind of holiday, we decided to give it a go anyway. We arrived on a Saturday without having made a booking, but the friendly staff did everything possible to accommodate us. The pitches were large and most of them were well shaded...
