“The worst I've seen.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2006

My girlfriend & I booked a two week holiday on the Costa Brava in Spain at the above campsite. We paid €900 for a two person Mobile home.
The first thing we noticed was the age of the mobile home, more than 15 years old and time certainly was not kind to it.
None of the windows closed properly or had any latches to keep them closed. One window was cracked and the other had a large hole. We asked for them to be fixed but none were.

The main problem we had was with ants. The mobile home was infested with them. There was thousands of them over our clothes and food. When we pointed this out to staff we were told that we were in the country and not in a hotel.
I have stayed in about 10 different campsites in mobile homes over the years and never have I come accross such an amature opperation.

Book at your peril.

Dear Customer,

Sorry for not responding sooner. Although we were aware of your review, we have just realised that there is a capability to respond to you through Trip Advisor.

We regret your poor experience at our mobile homes and how it may have impacted your overall holiday experience in 2006. We have long since removed those defective units and would like to apologise for the inconvenience you have suffered.

If you happen to come back to Calella de Palafrugell, we would very much like to find you a bungallow or a different place for your caravan or tent. The bungallows are all newer and in very good condition. Please let us know in advance that you may be coming and we will sort something out for you. It's feedback like yours that enables us to improve our service.

Best regards,
Camping Moby Dick
