We visited Camping Mar Estang in late June to July 2013. We travelled with 15, 11 and 6 year olds. We have travelled to France a number of times and without doubt this was the best site we have stayed in. There is a full itinerary all day for everybody - aqua aerobics, step aerobics, zumba classes, football tournaments, tennis, art classes etc (everyday bar Saturday). The pitches are close together, some not as good as others. We stayed with Vacances Soleil in a tent which was fine - bit of a sting on arrival with local taxes and bands for site amenities costing 102 for the 5 of us which we hadn't been warned about. But we didn't let it take from a great experience. The majority of staff have great English, the entertainment by night is excellent, something for all to enjoy. The onsite shop lady has poor manners but other than that all staff are super and make everybody feel welcome and included in all activities! The pool is excellent if a little cold - there are two heated pools but they aren't on the same side as the shoots & slides. Be warned, they are very strict about not being allowed to wear burmudas - we witnessed a couple of males being asked to leave the pool (not the pool area though, which is ok if you just wanna sunbathe). The onsite shop is dear and a little walk up the promenade will bring you to Utile, much more reasonable. Lidl in St. Cyprien is 10 mins in a car and worth a visit to save a few euros. Key Largo across the road via the underpass is brilliant. Excellent staff. The bar on site is excellent, staff have great English and the beer is reasonably priced - happy hour every day from 6-7 is a must! Overall this site deserves all of its stars and will be somewhere we will return. Notes for you if staying in pitches - bring your own toilet paper as none provided in public toilets!
