Overall a great site in a lovely hillside location and I would happily recommend it.
We booked our holiday here through UK based Siesta Holidays travelling down by overnight Club Class coach. It is an economical and generally stress free way to travel. Once seated you can sit back and relax with a reasonable amount of foot-space and watch the countryside roll by. Served on route by a hostess with hot/cold food/drinks, you have little to grumble about really
As for the accommodation and the site itself, the mobile home we had was starting to show signs of wear and tear. A deluxe 8 Lodge, for 5 (4 adults and a large teen) it was adequate but a little cramped in spaces, but it had everything you needed. Some of the other lodges looked new but were the smaller models. There was no welcome meeting at this site with the Siesta reps, so no excursion blurb or similar that you'd expect in some resorts. The site itself was in my view very nice, situated on a hillside slope and the various companies on the site had their units set out on terraces/steps throughout the parc. We saw Canvas Holidays, Homair, Siesta and La Siesta and a large area given over to touring caravans and tents. There was a lot of free space. Facilities on site are very good; an onsite bakery, supermarket, accessories store selling all manner of things, pharmacy, cash point, medical centre, shower blocks with washing machine area and sinks, small arcade, playgrounds, tennis court, sand based mini-football pitch, massage facilities and gym and 2 pools one which has the restaurant, bar and take away food sat overlooking it. A short but walk away and you are at the sea with fabulous views and a number of beaches, good selection of restaurants and some bars. But be warned the walk down and back is via a steep hill and there are a lot of steps to consider in town.
Service on site we found to be good, the quality of food likewise, though the range is limited and they stress it as fast food but not in the true sense though. Entertainment was average during our 2 week stay but on some evenings they had mini discos and theme nights.
Bottom line is that I was impressed enough to consider a return visit. I would recommend this site easily.
