Wij waren hier in het voorseizoen. Normaal qua formaat niet onze camping: te groot. Maar wat was het heerlijk rustig! Personeel krijgt hier een 10, niets was ze te veel, ze spreken verschillende talen. Wifi gratis! Schrik alleen niet op vrijdagmiddag, dan komt er een complete invasie binnen van Spanjaarden tot zondag. Geeft een hoop drukte, maar ook gezelligheid. Prima omgeving om te fietsen. We zijn ongepland 2 weken gebleven.

A l\'accueil un personnel très très sympathique, qui a eu la gentillesse de nous prévenir de l\'arrivée d\'un énorme groupe pour le we. Nous avons donc adapté notre séjour en fonction de ces arrivants !!
Piscines magnifiques, sanitaires impécables (nettoyés plusieurs fois par jour par des personnes compétentes et très attentives !! ), supérette applique des prix corrects. En septembre en semaine c\'est un camping très calme (les we sont surement plus agités, mais nous sommes prévenus ... donc on s\'adapte !! :) )
Posez vous et profitez, vous avez tout sur place !! :)

There are a couple of comprehensive reviews before this one that sum up this site very well so I\'ll be brief.
As seniors we travel in France in low season a) to use the ACSI card and b) because things are quieter low season. Sylvamar may be quieter in September but it is not not quiet.
The close proximity to the Spanish border attracts loads of Spanish family campers at weekends and facilities got well used. The pool complex is excellent.and there are restaurants and bars adjacent.
Our pitch was near the pool and the toilet/showers serving this area gave an appearance of luxury - wrought iron, a fountain, richly coloured tiles and piped soft relaxing music, clean tidy and plenty of hot water - however, there were not enough WCs for the morning rush.
We stayed for 3 night Thurs -Sat. Friday afternoon saw a constant stream of arrivals and this went on well into the evening filling most of the pitches. At 11.0 pm there loads of people were to-ing and fro-ing with kids zooming about on bikes and skates etc all chattering away as though it was the middle of the day. We didn\'t mind this as it created a nice cosmopolitan atmosphere. However, if you\'re the kind of person that likes to be in bed at 10.30 pm (for whatever reason) this may not suit you.
All in all a very well appointed site and good value for three nights. Would go again.

De kwaliteit van de door ons bezochte campings van Yellow Vilage staat op een eenzame hoogte. Onze complimenten!!

We chose to stay here after being very impressed by 2 other sites in the ‘Leading Campings’ chain and it was on our route back through France. Sadly the site did not live up to expectations.
The site is located in pine woods near the beach and is well signposted from Labenne.
A lot of other caravan parks are also situated nearby.
There are several bars and restaurants within a few minutes walking distance from the site. Adjacent to the site there is a large adventure playground and a small water park. There is also a Zoo nearby plus lots of other activities geared to families.
It’s a thirty minute drive to Biarritz and St Jean de Luz which was lovely.
There was a warm welcome and the team of receptionists speak several languages. We booked in with no hassle and were told we could walk around first and select our own pitch.
All pitches are on sandy ground and most have good shade provided by the pine trees. All pitches have water, drainage and power. The vast majority of pitches are huge and could easily accommodate a large caravan, awning and up to 2 or 3 cars. Access roads are good and it was easy to get the caravan onto a pitch.
Given that the French school holidays were about to begin we were surprised that only about 40% of the pitches were occupied.
Sanitary Facilities
Not as good as other sites in this chain. The sanitary block nearest to us was very dated indeed. The tiles on the shower floor I am sure were clean but were brown around the edges, making them look unclean. If you wanted water pressure you had to have a cold shower. If you wanted hot water you had to wait a while and lost all the pressure. This is not what I expect from a 5* site. On the whole it was an unsatisfactory showering experience which my wife was not prepared to repeat. We did find a newer block on a more recent part of the site which seemed little used as it was among bungalows with their own facilities. This did look and feel much better.
There is a reasonably priced small supermarket which also serves bread and bakery goods each morning
There is a large outdoor pool with tame waterslide, a lazy river and lots of sunbeds. There is also an indoor heated pool for younger children with lots of opportunities to splash and squirt water.
There is a pool at the Spa complex for which you will have to pay an admission fee.
There is a take away and restaurant on site. The take away serves pizzas, hamburgers etc.
The restaurant has a decent menu and is well priced. The pizzas looked good and we enjoyed our Moules et frites.
The staff were attentive and very jolly.
Loads of stuff for kids with several activities during the day for various age groups.
You can also hire bikes
There was some form of live entertainment every night between 09.30 and 11.00pm plus a junior disco at about 8.30pm.
Other Stuff
There’s a large children’s playground plus football and volley ball areas.
There is an expensive Spa called Dune & Eau.
A large family orientated site with lots going on. We managed to get in at the end of the low season and so paid a special prices using our ACSI card.
Security was good with overnight patrols and all noise ended at 11pm. It was very peaceful overnight and not too bad during the day actually.
As previously stated, the site does not measure up will to other sites in the ‘Leading Campings’ chain. The pitches are not well maintained (straggly grass and unpruned trees and hedges). The staff that we dealt with seemed to be well trained and courteous.
The biggest let down were the sanitary families. Don’t get me wrong, if you drive onto this site having been on a rustic Spanish site (and we have) you will be pleasantly surprised. It depends what your benchmark is. If I was asked to recommend a family site with lots going on, this one would not be in my top ten.
In addition to the touring pitches there are a lot of bungalows/statics for rent.

Étant des habitués des yellow village, ne partant que hors saison, quel fut notre déception. Bloc sanitaire, wc fêlé, entartre, sol encrassé, porte accès aux douches non sécurise (enfant qui joue claque les portes coulissantes, nous restons coinces à l’intérieur à attendre qu' une personne daigne venir avec les clés pour nous délivrer, sans aucun mot d'excuse). Emplacement caravane, obligé d'acheter un râteau pour pouvoir s'installer, demande de prêt de râteau à la réception , réponse 'ce n'est pas à vous de le faire, je vous envoie quelqu'un dans la journée'. Jusqu'au jour de notre départ, personne n'est venue.

Camping très très bruyant, de jour comme de nuit (chien aboyant toute la journée et enfants hurlant jusque tard dans la nuit). Espagnols ne respectant pas la tranquillités des autres campeurs.

Piscine que pour les petits enfants, bassin "moyen " même pas équipée d'une échelle de sortie, grand bassin (en profondeur) impossible de nager sans se faire sauter dessus.
transat :propreté à désiré.

Camping 900 m de la plage FAUX, de notre emplacement à la réception 500m, de la réception à la première place du parking de la plage 1500m et nous ne sommes pas encore arrivée a la plage.

A notre départ après avoir passée une nuit sans dormir vu le bruit des surfeurs qui se vengeaient du bruit des espagnols pendant leur séjour. Nous avons fait par de notre mécontentement à la réception, la réponse " si nous étions pas content nous avions qu'a partir" nous avons demander à voir la direction " cela était impossible", j'ai dit que dans mon métier je ne pouvais pas me permettre des erreurs , réponse "si votre métier ne vous conviens pas , vous avez qu'a en changer".

Internet: ai réglé 15 jours, mais pas de remboursement si départ avant,( cause du bruit et du manque de compréhension de la réception) car nous devions resté trois semaines,nous avons tenus six jours.

Conclusion: camping mal entretenu,bruyant, non accueillant de certain personnel, beaucoup de chose de fermée pour un yellow, la devise de l'enseigne tout les services doivent être accessible de l'ouverture à la fermeture.

Prenez exemple chez vos collègues, de la Cote de Nacre, le Panorama du Pyla et bien sur les top du top de l’accueil et de la propreté le Serignan plage ainsi que les Vikings.

Tout très bien, seul bemol l'éloignement de la plage. Bien 20mn a pieds, donc problème pour les personnes peu mobiles et les enfants, car en camping car on n'a toujours un moyen de transport. Les vélos sont donc indispensable. Sinon très bon camping, propre, accueillant, très belle piscine, beaux emplacements.

Camping agréable mais trop bruyant le week-end et assez éloigné des commerces et de la plage (voiture ou vélo nécessaires) Sanitaires et équipement propres.

We arriveerden op 26/9 's middags op deze camping. Bij aankomst bleek dat de camping dat weekend zou sluiten, hoewel de ACSI DVD 2013 aangeeft dat de camping tot 31/10 open is. Ook het restaurant, de pizzeria, de winkel en het zwembad blijven tot einde seizoen open. Niks van dat alles en brood was ook niet verkrijgbaar, terwijl er toch behoorlijk wat plaatsen bezet waren! Voor de Wifi wordt de hoofdprijs gevraagd, echt bespottelijk. Als goedmaker krijg je een kaartje mee, waarmee je 30 minuten kunt internetten.

Netter, großer CP unter hohen Bäumen. Daher sind sehr viele Stellplätze schattig, der Untergrund ist Sand. Überwiegend sind sie voneinander mit Hecken und Büschen abgetrennt.
Die Einrichtungen auf dem Platz sind super: es gibt sowohl draußen als auch drinnen ein tolles Erlebnisbad, außerdem einen Wellnessbereich, mehrere Ballspielplätze und viel Programm für Kinder.
Die sanitären Einrichtung sind schön gemacht, jedes ist in einem anderen Stil gefliest und eingerichtet. Leider hakt es bei der Funktionalität: obwohl der Wasserdruck der Duschen schlecht ist, läuft das Abwasser zu langsam ab und man watet im Mittelgang immer in großen Pfützen. Am Waschbecken läuft das Wasser ebenfalls schlecht ab. Die Toiletten sind teilweise reparaturbedürftig.
Schade ist auch, dass die Wasserstellen zwischen den Stellplätzen unangenehm riechen.
Der Weg zum Meer ist länger als 800m und zieht sich an der Straße entlang. Der Strand ist aber hübsch.
Die Pizza zum Mitnehmen auf dem Platz war lecker.
