This was a large beach site well used by Dutch and French who would have made up 90% of the holiday makers on this site. It was well run, with plenty of fascilities to enjoy, there were good restaurants at the pool and lower down nearer the beach. There was a pub at the entrance which did food - avoid this like the plague!! I don't think this was part of the complex because it certainly was not up to the standard of anywhere else on the site, yet it was at the entrance and not a good promotional image for the campsite. Immediately behind it was the site supermarket, it was large and well stocked, though if you have a car I would recommend a visit to another supermarket, we found none closer than 3 miles, which might explain the cost of some items in the site supermarket.
You might be surprised by the irregular layout of vans as they are set out amongst beautiful palm trees but without adjacent parking parking. Parking is in an area a short distance to the rear of the grouping. So traffic and people were separated, this was safer for kids and quieter and less disruption for everyone else. A bit different we hadn't come across this before but it was okay. We stayed with Keycamp and the van was spotless, well mentained, and our first van with air con. What a great addition in hotter sites!! There was road noise behind us but it was only heard when you were at the van! We didn't spend much time at the van and the noise eased off at night. For the lighter sleeper you might need ear plugs as it starts to build up again around 6am.
The pool was a little small but coped well until some group tried to have a volley ball match across the middle of the pool. This was an area where the water was about 1.5m deep, either side of this, was a shallower end for kids and a deeper end for the very tall or better swimmers. The area around the pool was tight for space and so loungers were few. There was also grass areas but these were very heavily shaded, this area is the only area I could find fault with but then there was a beach which was extensively used and an alternative. Touring vans had emplacements at the beach end of the site and a lot of Dutch pulled their tourers to this area This was an awful distance to come with a touring van but when they arrived they knew how to enjoy themselves and brought all with them for the occasion. There was a circular shaped jacuzzi and a snake shaped jacuzzi which were both well managed by site staff. This was great to have this on site and we used it a lot, really relaxing and the chlorine thoroughly cleaned you. It was used by many but you did not have to queue for more than 5 minutes max before you were in the water. Staff were strict about kids being accompanied in the jacuzzi. There was a cash dispenser on the opposite side of the road from the jacuzzi near the reception and this was useful. It gave you the option of charging your account in Euro or pounds sterling. If you chose Euro you were most likely were going to be charged twice for the transaction through your account, so hit the charge in pounds button as rates were good.
As you approach the site from the north west on the N160 there is a safer route before the entrance which takes you down and under this busy road rather than stopping and trying to turn left across traffic into the site. Tarragona and in particular Cambrils were worth a visit, we were advised to avoid Salou and did!
A great experience and a beautiful site suitable for all, though most were teenage families. Entertainment was provided on site and there was a disco with security guards/bouncers. Another find was the beach bar which was on a small rocky area which was decked at the beach edge. It was cheap to sit and have a drink here and look at the full moon sending a beam of yellow light over the sea. There was also a "rock" group playing here a few nights, the entire area would maybe have sat 100. If you had a large draught beer they poured this into a pint glass brought out of the freezer!! WOW!! Well worth trying. The beach was long but narrow and was still used after dark by groups of teenagers. It also had a life-guard posted up a look out hut during the day.
New all wooden huts were being built which looked good. Keycamp were also good if you were positione...
