Usually we tow to Brittany as we love the area however this year we wanted more of a gaurantee of weather on a daily basis. After a vast amount of research we found Sanguli and booked a touring pitch for our caravan.
We thought that the brochure was very well laid out and that the photos were the normal very well angled shots that were not what you would find on arrival. However we were pleasantly surprised that just about all the shots were a very good depiction of what to expect. If I were to be picky then the onlt critism I would have is that the pitched aren't as grassy as they are made out to be but very dry and dusty. This didn't spoil our holiday though in any way shape or form. Just one tip for tourers or campers, make sure you have heavy duty awning/tent pegs with you as the ground is soild and normal pegs are no good. Further to that a claw hammer is handy to get them back out again!
The site is very well laid out and is extremely well kept with daily pruning and watering by the maintenance team.
The showers etc are cleaned around about three times daily and are spotless! I almost felt like I was being stalked by the cleaning attendants as everytime I showered they were in there cleaning!
There are three great pools on site all with full time, very observant, life guards. Some may say too observant and too keen to blow there whistles at the slightest misdemenour being conducted. To be honest I felt safe knowing that they were constantly on the look out and that my two children (12 & 15) were in a safe zone.
The shops on site are very well stocked and not that much more expensive then larger shops in the area. In fact we found some very paletable red wine in the shop at 1euro 25cents!!
The gym facilities are great for those that are that way inclined and most of the activities are free! The only one that we paid for was the spinning at 2 euros a session.
We ate twice at the main resteraunt on site and both times had a great meal with excellent friendly service. We also used the takeaway facilities on site which again were great.
Clothes washing couldn't have been less stressful! Large bin bag sized load of washing was 6 euros a time. All you needed to do was drop the bag off with the laundry attendants they put the washing in for you along with the powder and conditioner and you picked it up again about an hour later! Drying was an extra cost but with the weather so hot it was dry within a couple of hours.
The location was great for the sea front and shops of Salou. The only observation I would have would be the closeness of the main railway line which you cross to access the site. You do hear the horn and motion of the trains during the day however at no point did they keep me awake during the night.
The entertainment was good but would have been better if not mimed on certain nights. Also there was a night where the audience could volunteer to get up and have a go however our youngest daughter, who is a great singer, was turned down when she asked to get up and sing as she wasn't with one of the tour operators!!
The local area is great as well. We found some great beaches within 30 Mins at L'Hospital de L'Infants and Miami Platge. The nearby resort of Cambrilis was also great to wonder around and shop. The port/harbour was nice with many boat excursions to be taken advantage of.
We always look for pleasant resteraunts that overlook the sea and this area was full of them. Many great meals with fantastic sea views were to be had.
We took in a trip to Barcelona on one of our days and thoroughly enjoyed it. We took the train which is only a 15 min walk from the site at a cost of 60 euros for a family of four. The train does get very busy and was standing room only. Word of warning though, in the short journet we witnessed two accounts of pick pockets! One of the favoured methods is to draped a shirt/t-shirt over their fore arm to disguise their hands entering handbags etc. To be honest we could of done with two days in Barcelona so next time we would look at driving there and booking a hotel over night. One good thing that we took advantage of was the fantastic app that Tripadvisor offer of the city guide. All you simply do is enter where you want to go to and follow the compass arrow to where you want to go to! It was acurate and a blessing.
Any way back to Sanguli.
We had a great holiday and came back wishing we could of stayed.
Would we go back? YES we would and have already emailed them for a quote for next year.

A great site. Very high standard, very clean. Good location. Evening entertainment in the amphitheatre is Ok but a bit of a let down. Ok so it's free so I know I should not expect much but why try to produce something that is beyond you? Tonights show is totally mimed to a backing track as was the 'Broadway' show (more Holywood actually.)..PA rig is capable of delivering sound to no more than 50% of the audiorium (just been for a walk round the top level and currently typing this next to the control room). The show will end as they all do - same songs, same routine.

This is our second stay in paradise vila in Sanguli. Went to France last year but had to go back to Sanguli for its cleanliness, location and wonderful facilities. We stayed for 9nights, the time goes by quickly as there was lots to do for our 3 busy boys. We hired bikes outside the site in the nearby bike hire on the way to cambrils as there were cheaper and cycled most days. The boys loved the pool, play area and trampoline. Sanguli is situated central to both Salou and cambrils so plenty of choice in food, we ate in the mucky duck, towards cambrils, the Guinness tavern in lower Salou and in some of the seafood restaurants alone the beach front in Salou - all good. As far as we are concerned while this campsite is a little expensive it is worth it. The staff are effecient, courteous and friendly. The place is spotless, safe and has a warm atmosphere. You have the best of both worlds of the facilities in the camp and the buss and variety of a busy resort. Somethiing for all tastes. Hope to get back next year.

We booked a last minute Al Fresco break and were lucky to get four days on this campsite.We have been on a number of campsites in France and Italy but for me this is the best. I absolutely loved it, and goes without saying that I would have stayed longer.
We always hire a car but here there wasn't a need.We flew Cork to Reus and got a taxi to the campsite which took about 15 minutes.We arrived about 3 in the afternoon were checked in quickly with some great tips from our Al Fresco rep, and our girls were exploring the pools by 4.For someone thinking of a short break the fact that the pools remained open until 8 is a big bonus,the three pools were very good with something for everyone.
The things that we liked most about the site were the the relaxed atmosphere, the facilities, its closeness to the beach, the fact that everyplace was so clean, the takeaway pizza,s were a big hit, the entertainment at night was good, and of course the weather.
We used the Plana bus to go to the market in Tarragonia, and to Cambrils one of the evenings, its a lovely town and we enjoyed a very nice meal there.We bought a card for the bus in the Tabac which allowed us 10 journeys for 10 euro.
Overall we had a really great four days and would love to go back again but for longer.

Great to see such good feedback regarding our team on Sanguli - I will make sure it gets passed on to our overseas team.

Sanguli is a fantastic site with a brilliant location so we're really pleased to see you enjoyed your short stay there.

Hopefully we will see you again next summer, or maybe later this year Sanguli doesn't close till the end of October.

Kind Regards, the Al Fresco team

Hi There

This is gonna be a long review so I suggest you get a coffee, relax and enjoy.
For the last number of years i have been thinking of going here but something else always came up.Am I glad I went this year.We went in a group of 12 10 adults a 14 and a 10 year old.we booked 2 saluris mobiles and a bali hut.

From the time we arrived the reception staff were great and efficient and spoke good english.Our mobiles were really lovely and spotless and had everything needed and the best part was the air conditioning.lovely table outside covered by a gazebo and plenty of room if you had a car.a stones throw away was a supermarket and one of the pools.

The park itself is absolutly fantastic for young and old.plenty for children to do.3 large swimming pools with all sorts of slides if you were brave enough.well supervised with lifeguards and lovely restaurants.unfortunatly we only went for a week so didnt get around to the many facilities but roll on next time.

if you really want to leave the park then its a short stroll down a beautiful tree and flower lined walkway and across the train track to the beach.Fab beach and glorious sand and water is beautiful.quite expensive for the loungers and cover though.5 each for a bed and 7 for a cover.

Lovely little beach bars along the way into salou which is a good 20 minutes walk.salou is beautiful and my favourite place to eat and drink is Danny boys Irish pub great food at very reasonable prices.
if your going to newcamp on the train please BEWARE of PICKPOCKETS my daughter actually saw them in action.

Back to the park if you fancy a take away there is a couple in the park and the cooked chicken is divine great when your too lazy to make up anything else and the rolls and cakes in the supermarket are to die for yum.

Finally all in all a fab holiday great company by the way with our family and friends.fantastic weather very helpful and courteous staff.what more could you ask for.

Ps security is brilliant

Just returned from a Al Fresco holiday in Sanguli, Salou. A great holiday. We had a Rosini mobile home that fit the bill for my wife and I and our five and six year old boys. The site is very well run, very clean and the pools are fantastic. The Al Fresco team was excellent and always on hand if needed. The beach if needed (we only went once because the pools were so good on site) is just a ten minute walk. Taxi from the airport (Reus) was 30 Euro for the four of us and is a 10 minute drive. Lots of fun things to do. Do take a side trip to Cambrils, you can take the bus right outside the campsite for 1.65 Euro each. It is a great little Spanish town and a lot nicer than Salou with a great marina. Although the one thing with the mobile is the shower does not give adequate amount of hot water, goes cold, then hot....better to use the campsite showers which are very clean and you can get your own shower stall with privacy - there are also family/children stalls, quicker and nicer to use than the mobile's. Nothing to fault on the holiday - would highly recommend and will be returning. Lastly, with little ones, the site is very safe, lots of security and at 12 midnight, everyone has to be quiet - i.e. a plus for families with little ones.

Booked a weeks holiday on the park through Thomson Al Fresco for the family.

Both the site team and Thomson teams were brilliant, the facilities were spotless, 3 pools were fab. The Thomson Kidz Club was well liked by our little one. The choice of food in the take away and bar were limited, but the restaurant was serving very tasty dishes a reasonable prices.

The onsite shops were well stocked and provided good choice and lovely fresh bread every morning.

Used Plana buses (booked just up the road from the camp) for a few tours to break up the stay.

A great place to stay, good clean beach over the road and with Reus airport 15 mins away.
