“First time and impressed!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This was the first time we had stayed here and because of the time of year the site was only a third full. We stayed with Venue Holidays who worked out to be the cheapest in a supertent. The campsite is set in pine forest, 10 mins stroll from the beach. It has an excellent onsite supermarket which was cheaper than some of the larger ones's nearby. A good selection of fresh meat for the bbq and fruit and veg also fresh baked bread and pastries every day. The site bar was very friendly and reasonably priced but along with the pool because of the time of year, very quiet (which we loved). There are further bars and restaurants approx a 30 min walk away along the sand dunes (need a torch at night) but it is a flat path. The toilets are also worth a mention, they were the cleanest I have ever encountered and they seemed to be a cleaner in there 24/7. Toilet roll was also provided. The only downside to our stay was that there is constant night time noise from the frogs around the lake and the bird and boar scarers at the nearby rice fields, ear plugs are a must!

Camping playa brava is a excellent campsite and very well run. We were a family of four, two adults and two kids. The campsite pitches are very good and are bigger enough. Our pitch was 165, which was near the main toilet block, play ground and the base for the kids club. Our daughter loved the kids club, which is run by the team. Plenty for older kids to do on the site, footie, table tennis, swimming and you can walk to the beach through the campsite path. Their is a well stocked shop, which has every thing you need and isnt overall priced like the camp site shops in the uk. Their is a bakery next door to the shop, the smell is to die for but you have to queue for your fresh bread, which doesnt take long. their is night time entertainment and a mini disco for the little ones. Overall the campsite is very clean and the toilet block are cleaned on the hour. Their is plenty of washing up sinks for your dishes and a lovely clean beach.It is near the town of pals which is very small. Only thing is that the site is full of Dutch and and Germans, not many brits which didnt bother us too much, only the language skills are needed for the kids. We loved it that much that we will be back next year 2013 for longer.

Very busy campsite with access on to the beach- great! Toilet blocks were clean and well maintained. The site has a very well stocked shop with bread baked each morning on site. Could do with take away. Did not use the on site restaurant. Plenty to do on site with music and entertainment each night. Reception very helpful. Seems like a lot of Dutch families use this site.
