The 4 stars are for the great location on this stunning beach - we would return to it for that reason. We were comfortable in a Eurocamp mobile home adjacent to the gate to the beach. The campsite is clean and functional but its facilities are basic enough when compared to other campsites. Its takeaway and restaurant are particularly disappointing.... More

Great location just behind the beach, impressed that the staff keep the facilities so clean despite the large number of folk using them. Only downside is that the pitches are very small and crowded in. Wifi was expensive, most campsites we have visited recently offer free wifi or free wifi for a set period each day e.g. 1 hour per...

Every other review has told you the basics. It's not hot, 22c which is very comfortable. We bought cheap half wet suits from decathlon in UK as it can be cold in the wind. Can be cold at night. We had to use the electric heaters in the bedrooms. No need for air con. We go for beach holiday, cheap... More

We spent two days here before boarding our ferry from Santander back home. It's a large site although it doesn't feel it and is located on the most amazing beach worthy of a Caribbean address! The site itself is well serviced with excellent toilet and shower facilities, a mini market, a fast food restaurant/bar, a disco, sports facilities, a swimming... More

Positives; modern, clean well run camp, beautiful location, good restaurants in town, nice restaurant on site, pool and many other facilities. Down side; there are lots of children, being very noisy.. Which isn't a massive issue, however, they bomb around the site on bikes and we almost had several accidents.

Camping right at the real nice beach. Spotless clean facilities. Outdoor pool. Avoid the cafeteria for food. Nice pitches on the campground. Expensive Wifi!! Walking/Biking distance to a town. Unfortunately a lot of closed in low season.

Stayed for 10 days. Lovely and clean campsite although some pitches quite close together. The campsite has an ok restaurant/bar and decent supermarket with fresh bread/croissants each morning. Pool quite small and basic although the best bit is the nearby beach which is stunning! Perfect for children with good waves and lots of tidal pools. Nearby Noja has a few... More

Stayed here mainly for the location, which we really couldn't fault, right next to a huge, beautiful beach with very clear water. Ideal for both body boarders/surfers and safe for youngsters as well. Massive site so I'd advise trying to get a pitch at the back near the animal farm and playing field for a bit of peace and quite.... More

Really great site, we visited at the start of our touring trip, ~1hr from Santander port and stayed 2 nights, then came back at the end for a chill out beach holiday for another 5 nights. Easy check-in, English speaking staff, clearly marked options on a map so you could view before choosing. Nice sized pitches with hedges between most.... More
