As usual in Spain the price is too high for what you got! This camping has most plots with a slope down to the sea, so you need to level up your mobilhome quite much to reach acceptable situation.
The plots are too small for a mobilehome which is 7 meters or more!
To stop a night or two but no more!

Guter Cp zur Durchreise. Alle sehr freundlich.
Schöne Bucht. Alles o. K. Zufahrt auch mit 7m Mobil passierbar. Witzige Stellplätze zum größten Teil mit Sonnenschutz überdacht.

Extremely poor site with no interest at all from staff. Peeling paint and broken canopies, very small uneven pitches and showers akin to victorian baths. Feels dirty and seedy and buses
hardly running due to rock blocking road for TWO MONTHS. Don\'t try it as the owners dont give a damn.

unico campeggio vicino al centro. nulla di che. direttamente sul mare ma con spiaggia molto sassosa. il mare splendido ma purtroppo troppa immondizia che galleggiava, e non solo alla spiaggia del camping. bagni nella norma. area camper Service un po rudimentale. piazzola non eccezionale. comodo x visitare parco Oasys a solo 20km (noi avevamo anche un motorino)

Deze camping ligt vlak aan de zee. Ze komt als het ware onder je caravan rollen. Voor de deur ligt een hoofdweg richting Almería. Je bent verplicht met de auto of de bus naar de stad te rijden. Fietsen of wandelen is uitgesloten wegens te gevaarlijk. Op zondag rijden er weinig bussen naar de stad.

We vinden het een vuile rommelige camping. Met zeer verouderd sanitair. Het sanitair is wel proper. Het plaatselijk winkeltje stelt niet veel voor.

Smalle plaatsen met weinig ruimte tussen de campers en caravans.

Der Platz liegt DIREKT am Meer. Nur 10 Meter zum Wasser. Sandküste. Es ist eine sehr sehr schöne und saubere Bucht. Die Sanitäranlagen sind NICHT NEU - ABER: dafür ordentlich, mit Warmwasser, und werden JEDEN TAG GEREINIGT ! WAS WILL MAN MEHR!! MENSCH!! MAN IST DOCH NICHT IN DEUTSCHLAND - SONDERN IM AUSLAND!!
Ich verstehe die Menschen NICHT - die an ALLEM etwas Auszusetzen und Rumzunörgeln haben!!

This is a very small and scruffy looking site with very old toilet/shower facilities. It\'s located right on a small pebble beach which is also a bit scruffy. We only stayed for one night as we were travelling but the staff were very friendly and the toilets/showers were clean and worked very well. We woke to a lovely bright sea view and enjoyed our stay.

Had iets meer verwacht van deze camping gezien de unieke ligging. Sanitair was opgeknapt en goed schoon.
Standplaatsen ingedeeld als een parkeerplaats en daardoor is het voor een hedendaags kampeermiddel op vele plaatsen moeilijk je plekje te vinden. Geen schaduw gerealiseerd terwijl er wel de frame\'s zijn voor schaduwdoek. Het was er bloedheet, de enige verkoeling is dan de zee of een koude douche. Entertainment gedeelte was vies en veel te verwaarloosd!!
