“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a very pleasant campsite. It is attractive and the facilities are clean and well maintained. It does not have all the flash swimming pools etc of Camping Siesta up the road (where we have previously stayed), but it is closer to the beach and centre of Calella and offers a more authentic camping experience. Service at reception and in the bar / restaurant is friendly and efficient. We stayed at the top of the campsite, and the walk will make you sweat, but it is an effective way to burn off all those tapas.
Will stay again.

We stayed in a Bungalow at Moby Dick in july 13
the campsite staff are very friendly and welcoming always waving and ready with a smile ,
it has a nice cafe bar area with a relaxed atmosphere subtle music and cold beer :-]
the site is terraced on a hill so walking up to the top of the site was challenging for the unfit but car assess throughout the site is very good and parking near your pitch is available ,
the site is wooded and offers nice shade the gardeners maintain the pitches too a good standard sweeping leaves chopping bushes ect ,
the site in whole is a refreshing relaxing place and the staff care about the customer,its not noisy at all its a tranquil family run place and i cant wait to go back !!
the situation is superb 5mins from the spar supermarket so we could get all our supplies easily,
8mins walk to beach and town restaurants ect.. calle de palafrugel is unspoilt gorgeous catalan fishing village ,picture postcard perfect ,
dont let any negative review on here put you off its a campsite a very good one !!!not a 5 star hotel

Room Tip: less mobile people should ask for bottom of hill pitch

We stayed here after reading the Lonely Planet who suggested itand we were not disappointed. It was mid June so it was quiet so shared the place with only a few other people.
The site is set in pine trees so you get some sun and shade and some areas you get a sea view as well. Sites are a good size as well. The sites on the other side of the road are better we thought. 100m from the beach and supermarket. Restaurant and bar were not open when we were there so cannot comment if they were good.

Room Tip: Sites the other side of the underpass were better some with sea views.

We stayed here a couple of years ago for a month and loved it, beautiful calm natural surroundings of Mediterranean pine wood,friendliness of staff ,a family run business where you feel at home . I am disappointed to read the negative reviews perhaps some people would be better off in hotels, but for us this was an authentic camping experience with no commercialism or gimmicks, would love to go back!

Room Tip: A place for nature lovers who dont want to be bothered with tourist trappings, in a lovelly village

We stayed here during a backpacking trip around Europe. The camp site was adequate (it may have been updated since as it is a long time ago that I went there). It is a very small campsite.

The village of Calella de Palafrugel is lovely though with nice restaurants and little beaches.
