Travelling party: Couple


Stayed 3 nights in January 2016.
A good base to explore Cabo de Gata. Loads of walks & cycling in the area. If you\'ve never visited Southern Spain before the poly-tunnels on the way in can be a bit disconcerting but they end several kilometres from the site.
Most pitches are covered by shades (supported by steel rods pointing out which could damage high roofed motorhomes) and in the low season it would be better if the shades were removed.
As a consequence of the shades the pitch was dark which made the inside of the our van even darker, required lights most of the time!
Toilets & showers were clean but dated, gents shower had no hot water on one day and on another fluctuated between hot & cold.
Restaurant food was good.

Stayed here for three nights. The pitch is large and, with fine shingle, there is no need for a ground sheet. The showers and toilets are looking a bit dated but clean with plenty of hot water. In fairness, the top half of the site was under renovation so perhaps the rest of the site will be done. There is a nice walk, about 1 km, to Los escullos beach front. I\'m sure it\'s busier in the summer but the scenery is breathtaking. We cycled to Los Islatas del Moro, about 6km away. A wonderful picturesque village in a stunning cove setting. Well worth a visit. The site was very quiet for the first two nights however on the third night we had around 15 young folk setting up 7 tents in front of us. They were just having fun however were quite noisy. Not sure if this is usual at the weekend.
We would certainly visit again...... Making sure to avoid weekends.

Hola a tod@s.
Vacaciones verano 2015. Cabo de Gata es un sitio espectacular. Digno de visitar y respetar los espectaculares paisajes naturales. En cuanto al camping.... a mi criterio, deja mucho que desear.
- La instalaciones de los aseos y duchas son muy antiguas con un mantenimiento y conservación pésimo. Muy pocas duchas y algunas de ellas no funcionan adecuadamente. Solo hay 9 duchas de masculinas y 9 duchas femeninas. Imaginad en hora punta después de una jornada de baño en la playa.
- En la parcela que nos han asignado hay dos arquetas las cuales emanan olor.
- Las calles son de gravas, por lo,que el polvo es considerable.
- Horarios de descanso, poco respetados. Son las 00:23 y continúan
- Relación calidad - precio muy desequilibrada. El precio de la estancia no va acorde con los servicios y el cuidado que debiera tener.

- Entorno maravilloso. Cabo de Gata es digno de visitar y relajarse observando los paisajes que el tiempo y las olas han dejado para el viajante.
- Muy buena comunicación con carreteras y pueblos cercanos.
- Proximidad a la playa por un camino en buen estado. Solo 1,5 Km. Se puede hacer en bicicleta con los niños sin problemas.
- Muchas rutas cercanas para senderismo a pié o en bicicleta.
- Buen control de accesos.

Estuvimos en el mes de junio recorriendo la zona de cabo de Gata. Está ubicado en una de las zonas mas bonitas del parque, es tranquilo, con unas buenas instalaciones, wifi gratis y un personal amable. Lo volveria a escoger sin dudarlo.

Marked pitches with netting overhead to provide shade . Pitches on gravel many bordered by trees & shrubs. Electricity 10 amp & reliable, Wifi free & good signal on pitches. Very nice site which catered for most needs. Lovely pool with lifeguard. We stayed longer than expected and would certainly return. Highly recommended.

Mooie camping met voldoende ruime plaatsen. Tijdens ons verblijf, in een weekend in januari, was het een rustige camping. Sanitair is zuiver, goede warme douches.
Mooie woestijnachtige dorre omgeving, met uitstekende wandelmogelijkheden langs de kust, in de onmiddellijke omgeving van de camping.
Voor bevoorrading is men, afgezien van een kleine supermarkt op de camping, afhankelijk van het op 7 km gelegen San José.
Een aanrader.

Très décus: pas de piscine comme promis sur brochure ni chauffée ni froide, rien, pas de transas autour de la piscine comme sur photos, loin de la mer, pas d\'amusement dans le camping hormis l\'heure d\'espagnol (séjour en janvier et février 2015)..
Des structures qui existent mais pas en service!!

David Moody, on this campsite in January 2015

Nice site in natural park. Black sunshades are a bit unsightly and should be removed during low season.
Nice area for walking and biking with pretty little villages along the coast.
Happy hour 6-7 good as get 2 beers or wine for the price of 1 with a small tapas.
Top up with shopping if in Motorhome as quite a distance for supermarket.
Would visit again.

Chose this site for a stay of at least two weeks but we only stayed 3 nights. However we would visit it again, it did just not suit our needs this time.The site is attractive and well laid out with marked hard standing pitches, with good space in between. Plenty of flowering shrubs and greenery and the toilet facilities were clean but the 2 ancient washing machines are crying out to be replaced. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. No charcoal barbecues are allowed and there is no barbecue area. The reasons we did not stay longer are as follows: being in a motorhome we are quite happy to cycle or walk 5 km to shops in general but the road to any such district was not really conducive to either. The camp shop was poorly stocked and the open all year outdoor swimming pool was absolutely freezing. On the plus side, the wifi reception was pretty good and free. Soap provided, electric hand dryers

I stayed at this site for a month - October-November. Plenty of spacious pitches with or without full sun. When it rains, several pitches flooded but were drained dry in a few hours.
Reception staff were very helpful, as were the bar and restaurant staff.
The site can experience high winds at times and tents/caravan awnings need good rock pegs for security.
The site is roughly divided into two sections - left and right! On the right are many Spanish annual pitches. At weekends this section is lively without problems. The children love the on-site facilities for their use. The left side is used by both long and short stay visitors from all over Europe. The visitors appear to be very friendly and helpful to each other.
All the services are very clean and serviced as many as three times a day, depending on numbers present.
WiFi coverage is excellent across the site and is provided FOC! Well done.
The area provides plenty of good walking and beeches within the Cabo de Gata Park.
