This was our first holiday abroad as a family. Glorious weather, and the park facilities were also amazing. The swimming pool was phenomenal as were the rest of the facilities. The location is perfect with local beaches, shops, restaurants and clubs all within walking distance. Would love to return some time in the future.

Let it be known, I am not a camper. I like the idea of it, but I like my comforts too much. This for me was a good compromise. We were in need of a family holiday, somewhere not too expensive and somewhere that the kids would be happy, but so would we. We live in France, so driving was...

Lovely campsite, pool facilities here and across the road in La Sirene are excellent, Restaurants not up to much but we barbequed so it didn't matter to us. Nice bakery with lovely croissants. I would be giving this campsite a very positive review it it wasn't for the noise. Hippocampe is just across the road from the entertainment complex in...

The official website of Hippocampe claims that guests will ''benefit from the calm that comes with a smaller campsite.'' Unfortunately, this is not the case. The campsite is terribly noisy. A circus was situated next to the campsite and the employees of the circus were allowed to drive over the campsite and advertize for the shows with a megaphone. This...

Stayed at L'hippocampe from 2 -16 July 2013. Family of 6 - two adults and 4 children aged 12,10,8,and 5. We had a 3 bed mobile with Lifestyle holidays which was very modern and clean. Our pitch was near the pool & in a shady location which suited us. At night-time some noise can be heard from an adjacent road...

Very noisy site. Mobile home in direct line with speakers from la sirene. Rehearsals went on for hours by day, and the show, till late at night. Then, neighbouring campsite's entertainment boomed out more noise. We have had several holidays in other parts of France without this problem. Kelair staff were really helpful and moved us after first week. We...

Have been going to this park for over 10 years and have never had a bad holiday here. My children have also always enjoyed the holidays taken here and indeed still go as adults now.

So we have a four year old son and a one year old little girl. A couple of years ago we went to a place named Club Farret in Vias Plage, which was another of the popular French campsites. That one was excellent in that it was right next to the sea, had an outstanding recently constructed pool complex and...
