Travelling party: Couple

1. despite being reassured that reservation was unnecessary – when I phoned 3 days before – when we arrived the place was full.
2. Because there were no \"ACSI\" pitches left, we were charged more per day on top of the standard ACSI rate, for a water connection, despite the fact that we could not use it, and you could argue that – given 1 above – they should have waived the charge.
3. Their website gives the impression that the piches are properly separated, and sheltered; They are not. The divisions are marked with plates in the ground, and painted sticks.
4. Most camping sites place trees or water stations between pitches; They don’t, such items were often right in the middle (making parking a caravan or campervan interesting).
5. Having arrived at about 7.30 pm and set up the tent, we went to the onsite cafe at about 9.10 pm for something to eat. We were informed that the kitchen was shut and we could only have a pizza; Part way through said pizza (which with no salad or aother accompaniment) the staff locked the door and started clearing other tables.
6. On another day at about 4 pm, when the temperature was over 30C, said café – where the ice cream cabinet was located – was closed till 5.30 pm, and refused to open to sell ice creams.
7. On one day when I drove up to the beach access gate to see if I could drop my wife (and chairs, parasol etc.) off and then walk back myself, they dumped a huge pot in the access way, thus preventing any such access.
8. There was never any hot water in the sinks or showers, and if the temperature ever did accidentally slip above tepid then it only ran for 10 seconds with the stupid push “taps”.
9. The toilet block had no entrance marked “Ladies’ Toilets” in any language. The “main” door had many pictures of baths, showers, sinks etc. If ladies went through that door they had to pass through the gents showers, or they could just go through the door marked “laundry sinks”. Obvious really!
10. The pitches were not mown after users left.
11. The pitches were not cleared of any rubbish left by users.
12. The pitches (certainly in the area where we were located) were so stony as to be painful to walk on, and damaging for groundsheets (for everyone, not just tenters).
13. The reception is only open from 9 am to 5 pm, which is hardly ideal if you arrive late or wish to leave early – as most campers tend to do

Our first trip to the Carmargue. The site is about a 20 minute walk outside of St Maries de la Mer, but if you are able to cycle it would only take about ten on a perfectly flat cycle path. We had plenty of options as far as pitches were concerned and they were all quite spacious. It was, however, quite windy when we were there and we had to turn our motor home round a couple of times. There is a small beach within walking distance and the water was warm. Fresh bread in the bar each day. Highlight for us was the boat trip on the Tika II which goes from just outside the camp site. 10Euros for a couple of hours down the Petit Rhone to see the birds, horses and bulls. The town is lovely, too many restaurants to chose from, but the food we had on one was excellent. Big Spanish influence in the area. The downside was the toilet facilities, they\'re modern but not particularly clean and for some strange reason the staff chose to clean them between 7.30 and 9 in the morning. Fortunately we have very good facilities in our motor home and tended to use them instead. There is a very good motor home point on site so that was an added bonus for us. Would we visit again - probably, but we\'ve ticked off the Carmargue so it\'ll be a while before we return.

We stayed here in our caravan for three nights in June. Despite many warnings picked up in other reviews, we decided to have a go at staying on this site right on the Camargue coast – it seemed too good to miss. Most warnings concerned the biting insects, but we were armed with lotions, coils, electric vapour devices and screens, so we thought we could survive. We arrived at 12.05 (grrr!). This meant we had a two hour wait until the reception re-opened at 2pm. Quite a queue formed and tempers were getting frayed by 2pm as the queue jumpers did their best! Good points: plenty of space on site in June; a very nice, if busy, pool; direct access to the beach from the site. Bad points…well, the insect life was intolerable. Even fully lotioned, you couldn’t comfortably walk from the door of the ‘van to the back of the car without feeling the biters moving in. We mustered about 50 bites between us in 3 days. An English couple we met lasted one night and left traumatised! Having said that there were plenty of people lounging around on site, apparently comfortable. We had to leave after 3 days because we were tense and uncomfortable…not good on a holiday. Incidentally, we had a great day out on the nearby bird reserve. Did we get bitten there at all – no!! Add to this problem a feeling that the site is unloved; the older toilet block was smelly; there is a bar/café, but they offer ONE outside table and no shade! Taking all of this together, we realised that a better holiday could be had elsewhere – and so it proved! Never again!

Worst ever campsite been on, pitches very small, very untidy site, would not recommend. Staff not helpful and very untidy.

This is a very busy site, the staff were extremely friendly but the site wasn\'t one of our favourites.
It needed more sun loungers around the pool. The town is very touristy. You will need mosquito repellent for the Camargue region

Travelling party: Seniors

Visited this site intending to stay a couple of days but left after one. Reception staff, a middle aged man, very offhand and unwelcoming, electric pitches for ACSI members littered, muddy, rutted and like a truck stop. Sanitary block smelt of drains. Site shop assistant refused to serve my wife with bread (I think because she was obviously English) telling her to go to the gas station. They served me when I went in immediately afterwards. An unpleasant site staffed by unfriendly people. The location is good.

Very disappointed, probably our worst ACSI experience. No customer satisfaction, grubby facilities, poorly maintained pitches. Pool very pleasant. Surrounding area excellent.

Staff seemed offhand. Toilet facilities we're cramped and a bit smelly. Shower ceilings covered with black mould.

Travelling party: Seniors

Drainage poor and very uneven pitches. Site generally not well maintained, gardens shabby. Laundry room dirty and untidy. Cafe hygiene non-existent. Toilets/showers grubby. Our first ACSI site and possibly our last as we were so disappointed. The only good thing I can say is that it was close to a lovely beach and the swimming pool was good.

Heather Dew, on this campsite in April 2011

Travelling party: Seniors

What may be described as a spacious campsite certainly was disappointing in the low season. The area being used was too limited and resulted in pitches being small and crowded. While the swimming pool was delightful the amenities left a lot to be desired. We had intended to stay for a few days but left after one night. This meant we did not get to enjoy some of the areas delights.
