“le vieux port”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

My family and i went here june/july of last year, the weather was good for the 1st 2 weeks but for the 3rd it rained non-stop. this had nothing to do with the site though which was amazing. everyone really friendly and helpful the pools spotless clean, the beach for me was the best, we just brought our own packed lunch and beers to the beach with us and spent the day there. people say the waves are really dangerous and i suppose they are but if you take caution you can have lots of fun with them.there are near-by towns to visit all within walkin distance, if you have a child 3 or under, a pram would be needed. there is also a great supermarket up the road a bit and reasonably priced aswell, though the more into the summer months you go they put their prices up so if your holidaying for a few weeks like we did, stock up early. we are goin back next year and cant wait.

We spent eight days in total here . The weather was just amazing just one cloudy day. Showers and toilets were clean but I think the staff took Sunday off from doing it and the standard was lowered a bit but it didn't bother us much. We stayed in purple and as driving in to our pitch it was very difficult to find so I would recommend parking up after reception and walking to ur colour and number to avoid getting lost like we did . We got a lovely flat pitch for our camper van . There is one area to bar b q and ur not allowed to bar b q anywhere else so bring ur lighter fluid charcoal and a large wire rack to fit between the blocks u will be cooking on. The rubbish bins are at entrance of park so anytime heading out bring some rubbish it's a pain it's so far away though. We took our bikes such amazing bike paths . The beach was a short walk away it was breath taking. Reception staff all spoke great English . We can't wait to go back

The site is brilliant! Lots to do! Amazing swimming pools, the trouble is some of them could be warmer:L The inside pool is amazing and is like a sauna so hot and lovely!!(:
The slides are brilliant! We also went offsite to Biaritz very good but kinda expensive though, the beach is good there!(: As well as that we went to adrenaline parc, which is good for the us kids. It is pretty cheap to, which is good for you parents! It is also very good for adults to! The good thing is it isn't that far away from the campsite either! The beach which is very nearby is very good!
We also went to the bullfight, which was well interesting, lets say!:L If the circus is in town you MUST go, it is AMAZING, the lions, dogs, cats, doves, pony's, horses and there was even a lama outside!
We even had two thunder storms and although it was hard to get to sleep, in the morning there wasn't even a puddle to be seen!!
Well I would recommend this site to anyone of any ages, AMAZING!!

Big pitch, great location near the beach. Clean bathrooms. Good restaurant and take away pizzas. Pool complex well mantained. Lovely beach with a surf school.

Key camp mobiles homes were good as expected, however this site is enormous. Agree with previous reviews about garbage, restaurants and on site shop-expensive and a long way to walk if you are in one of sections closer to the beach. On previous sites my youngest has been able to play with other children by the caravans, hout wever I would not recommend this due to the sheer volume of bikes. My daughter was run over by a bike and we witnessed crashes between bikes and pedestrians, and bikes and cars, and plenty of near misses. It really was a case of taking your life into your hands to walk through the campsite.
The pool area is good and clean.
The beach is very close and the dunes are amazing as is the surf, therefore making it quite dangerous. There are lifeguards but the size of the waves make it unsuitable for younger children, they could stand at the edge and paddle but only with an adult. The drag of the waves was pulling people all over the show and just standing at the edge, you felt like you were being sandblasted. Howwever we saw an amazing subnset there one evening and the water seemed a bit calmer, however both my husband and daughter were mushed about in the water and they are strong swimmers. This said it is very exciting.
I would definately recommend visiting Bayonne and Biarritz and if you have a car, it is very easy to drive down to Sans Sebastian in Spain which is very pretty. The beaches at Biarritz, Sans Sebastian are much calmer but very busy.
All in all although we enjoyed the hoilday, it is what you make it, but we would not recommend this site to people wishing to travel with younger children (those who want to play outside the caravans or go to the park with their firends) as it is just too too big and dangerous (bikes). You also have to be incredibly fit just to keep walking to the pool, beach, park, entertainment, in fact anywhere.

Room Tip: Be aware that all the pitches are very close together, especially the mobile homes.
