We stayed for a couple of nights here with our camper van and tent at the end of our 2 week holiday touring around Spain, when we were in dire need of a bit of rest and relaxation after having driven quite a few miles across the country during our trip! We certainly got it here! We were lucky and had none of the issues with noise that others have experienced. In fact, we had some lovely neighbours who had also been touring around in their camper.
We stayed in a small but dedicated area for camper vans which is located amongst several of the chalets and accessible up a sharp incline (which was quite a fun challenge after an evening eating pintxos and drinking Rioja!).
The site, in general, is not that big and seems to be mostly given over to the chalets and camping with tents, although we did see some larger motorhomes in another part of the site.
The swimming pool was clean, well maintained and of a good size. Very welcome in the August heat! The only thing I would say is that it's a shame you have to descend/ascend quite a few steps to reach it - the (what looks like an) old entrance at the side is closed off.
We didn't use the store but popped into the bar area and few times in the daytime and hooked up to the free WIFI which worked very well. Again, nice helpful staff.
We would definitely come here again with our camper van or even book a chalet. You cannot pre-book for the camping though.
You can get a bus into town but you need to be mindful of the timetable as, it's quite a walk to pick up a bus on a more frequent route closer to the town. We would get a bus into town and a taxi back. (we didn't take our camper as it was hooked up and, during August, it can also be a bit challenging parking in Santander).
The faro (lighthouse) is close to the site and well worth a visit. These days, they have quite a few outside tables, along with a varied menu.
We found the site good value for money and the staff exceptionally helpful and accommodating. We really enjoyed our short time here and it's a great base from which to explore the wonderful city of Santander. Can't wait to go back again!
