We spent two nights at the end of a three holiday. It is a big bustling site but adjacent to a stunning beach and only 24 miles from the Santander ferry which is a bonus in itself whether you're arriving or leaving. Reception was very relaxed about us staying on to "whenever we wanted" on the day of our departure.... More

Busy site but facilities always clean. It is noisy until quite late at night but that is the Spanish way - up until late in the evening but lie in late in the morning. I would agree that pitches further away from the shop and pool probably better. The shop is OK for essentials such as fresh bread but there... More

Stayed here with a family of four in a Eurocamp "Esprit" caravan at the end of August. The weather was pleasantly warm and sunny on all but one day. We found the accommodation to be very clean and adequately equipped: the air conditioning was very useful. The park itself was well kept and had a good atmosphere. We only used... More

This is a very large site with varying sizes of pitches. I will give my view on and advice where to pitch. First - don't shop or eat here. The cafe food is awful and hugely overpriced. The shop is small and overpriced probably because there are no large supermarkets nearby. There are loads of showers but myself and daughter... More

We stayed here as it was near to the ferry port at Santander (30 minute drive). The campsite was average - small pitches and it felt like they'd crammed a lot in. The shop is OK (although if you were staying more than the 2 nights we did, you'd want to find a supermarket). They sell fresh bread and pastries... More

We stayed in a Eurocamp caravan which are generally towards the back of the site so there isn't as much traffic back there - although Eurocamp guests be aware that some of their caravans do back onto the playground/sports field and would be noisier. When we arrived I was surprised at how small the static caravan pitches were, but then... More

Large, busy site with direct access to beautiful beach. Small shop with all the essentials plus lovely freshly baked bread/pastries. Great pool with lifeguard and staff on gate for security.

This was a lovely campsite: had great views, activities and facilities. The nearby restaurant had amazing food and everyone was very friendly! However this is definitely not a pace for dressing up/going out. So keep that in mind. Great place for fun!

We have just spent 5 nights here and were totally disappointed and knackered by our experience. The site is too big, I cannot give you any advice on the best place to pitch as you are either rammed in at the beach side or tortured by the kids until midnight it you pitch near to the park.

We stayed here late July for nearly 3 weeks, it is quite a large site, and it would have been better if we had a larger pitch, once the awning was up and our VW van was parked next to that, we didn't have much room.
