“Nice, quiet campsite close to beach - shame about the weather!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We booked to stay at this camp site for 2 weeks end of June/early July. When we arrived we were really pleased by the site, nice swimming pool, quaint little out buildings and aside from the first pitch which we were shown to which was really overgrown the second pitch was much bigger and more pleasant. Unfortunately though the weather for this time of the year was really naff so although the beach is just down the road we didn't get to appreciate it. The local town is about 20mins away and is nice to visit but the capital St Martin is much nicer and definitely worth a look. Because of the weather we gave up and moved further South but it is a very nice site and would be well worth going to if you love cycling as it is right onto the paths for the whole island!!

Room Tip: Ask for a pitch away from the walls as they are much bigger and looked after better!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2009

We've just returned from 2 weeks at Tour Le Prises on the Ile de Re. It was our first visit to the island and we had a fantastic time and would definitely return. The campsite was fairly small and quiet and the staff were friendly. The shop was adequately stocked and open all day and free WIFI access was available in the games room. The reception staff were friendly and spoke English and were very welcoming to us and our dog (so much so we were concerned that we'd be leaving minus the dog!). The best way to get around the island is by bicycle which you could hire at the campsite and the staff were very accommodating to our ever changing hire requirements. Our biggest regret is not hiring the bikes earlier in the holiday - there is so much to see on the island and bike is by far the easiest way to get around and the campsite is ideally situation right on the main cycle path. The campsite and facilities were clean and take away pizzas were available. However all that said there were a couple of downsides mainly - there were insufficient sinks for the campsite and you often needed to queue, the nearest restaurant was 10 minutes away on bike (around 20 mins walk) and the whole island (not just the campsite) was fairly expensive and certainly a little more so than France in general. All that said we would definitely return and would stay on the same site.
