The other reviews are harsh, this is a lively site but friendly. Our kids 11 & 8 throughly enjoyed themselves meeting others and joining in with pan european football matches messing about in the play areas with kids form a number of european countries..learning to get out there and be part of it all. Yes the young adults were having a few early beers but I cant recall seeing any outrageous behaviour that made me think that my family were at risk or would be traumatised. Ok Matthews Caravans basic ...use them to sleep in and cook light meals..spend your quality time on the great beach ( v v g surf !) on your bike in the Pine Forests and in Lacanau especially if the Pro Surf comp is on. The cost of staying here isn't much and therefore if you're expecting Club Med cossetting dont go. The pool is really for the kids, although from time to time there are activites for Teenagers, its got a nice verandah where you can enjoy a drink whilst keeping an eye on them.
We are going back this year because the weather is good and we enjoyed the fact that its very much a get up and do things area. I cant comment on the washing toilet facilities for tent campers as I didn't use them. However I'm sure if there was a problem with them this should have been brought to the attention of the Staff who in my experience were attentive. One last point there is an on site noise / outside drinking curfew at about 11pm. This is enforced by staff patrols and in the main is well adhered to. Failure to comply reults in warnings and I understand ultimately ejection from the site! Tip Relax be a bit less Little Englander and make it a FAMILY Holiday.
