This review is for the campsite rather than the accommodation. Overall, I enjoyed the site, the pool looks a little odd at first with red tiles but it is clean and tidy with some sun beds. The opening times of the pool was a little confusing as a sign said it opened at 10:30 but people were seen swimming much before then. The lifeguard(s) was entirely useless unfortunately. English guests were asked to remove inflatables, Spanish guests were allowed the use of inflatables and also to take over the whole pool playing games with 15+ family members. One of the lifeguards (not sure if they were different people) seemed to have his girlfriend with him all week who would not leave his side and therefore distracted him. We witnessed a 4 year old boy jump into the pool forgetting he was not wearing arm bands and panicked, struggling to keep his head above water and screaming. His mother quickly realised but the lifeguard did not have a clue! We ate in the restaurant/bar most days and food was cheap and pleasant and arrived very quickly with staff being happy to help. There is a small on-site shop which was also affordable and very useful. I did not use the shower blocks myself but my friends often did and said they were nice and warm with showers having their own separate changing cubicle attached. The team at reception were exceptional, they are English speaking and were very helpful at all times. The site was clean and tidy in general and a couple minute walk to the nearest bus stop or train station. There are shops and restaurants in L'Alfas but you will likely want to visit Albir, Altea or Benidorm for more options/more life. Bus journeys are 1.5 Euros regardless of which bus or which destination. A private transfer (taxi) to 45 minutes from the airport to the campsite for 5 people and cost us 100 euros return.
