We stayed for 10 days in August with 2 teenage children. We definitely would not recommend this site unless you like crowds, noise, paint peeling off the facilities,crowded pitches and access to the beach through a dirty underpass covered in Graffiti.
When we arrived we were met with literally hundreds of people milling around in the entrance. We had to pay 84 euros for an armband to use the facilities. I'd never experienced this before and it seems unfair having already paid for our holiday. The bar is a concrete platform overlooking the crowded entrance and the 'restaurant' is a tacky looking cafeteria ,again with no view. The pool area is ok but there a sense of 'insititution' to it - entrance through a concrete building, no food or drink, no shoes etc.
This site has none of the attractiveness we had experienced previously in French and Spanish sites. Pitches were bare and small.
We went to Camping Montroig in Spain last year which, although a large and busy site. was relaxed, beautiful and sophisticated but our experience this year has put us off this sort of holiday for life!
