Campsite Mar Azul Balerma Cat.2

General information

On the south coast of Spain between the towns of Almeria and Motril in eastern Andalusia, you will find this newly constructed camping site. Camping Mar Azul Balerma offers its guests first class facilities on a level and open terrain. The fishing village of Balerma is only a short distance away and at approx. 10 km from the camping site you will find the attractive small town of Almerimar with a lively harbour packed with restaurants.

All possible flags of Europe welcome you from the through road, which runs parallel to the sea. The camping site is located a bit further off the road. The helpful Dutch owner has built a complete and relaxing camping site in a short period of time in a region which is very popular with hibernators. But also in summer months, this is a paradise. This is certainly the case for families, also due to the entertainment programme and the lovely swimming pool.

Palm trees

On camping site Mar Azul Balerma you can find sunny pitches everywhere and the vegetation is still young. Most of the pitches are provided with shade cloths. Pitches are given an extra tropical touch with a palm tree on each pitch. The pitches with loose gravel are located along several streets which are well-illuminated. In the centre of the camping site are a number of colourful wooden bungalows in a row.

Arabian atmosphere in the mountains

A short drive towards the north brings you to Granada where the Alhambra towers above the city. This impressive palace complex from the times of the Moors in on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

This is not a review of the campsite facilities as we turned around at the gate but more a view on the location of the site. There is no mention in the ACSI book or previous reviews that it is surrounded by miles of white plastic greenhouses in a less than picturesque and barren landscape. The whole scenery along the A7 between Almeria and Motril (and beyond) is blighted by plastic tents, it isn\'t a journey we will repeat.

stayed on this campsite for one night in January 2017.
GOOD:- clean, hot showers
great on site cafe - excellent coffee and good staff
quiet
flat pitch
good wifi
beach just across the road to walk the dog
go north on A7 to J409 for a really good LIDL and Carrefour
the campsite had a power cut for about 1and a half hours, the staff were brilliant in the cafe, they provided candles and free food
BAD:- not a pretty beach
nothing in the small town you pass through before the campsite
although the shower block is heated, the doors and windows were constantly left open
you pay extra for electricity
an awful smell of manure, which I think came from the plastic greenhouses

Our first visit and we were impressed with the facility\'s which are very modern the shower block was spotless with hot water always available also a dog wash and good child facilities and good sized pitches. The staff were very friendly and the bar area was pleasant with good basic food served. The town was very quite while we were there but had good supermarket about 20 min walk, 10 klm to the East is Almerimar which has a lovely marina with plenty of restaurants/cafe bars. The campsite is surrounded by poly tunnels but there are good views of the mountains and after a while they didn\'t seem as noticeable. We will definitely be returning sooner rather than later!

This is a lovely site with big pitches and plenty of shade. The toilet blocks are immaculate and cleaned regularly. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The beach 100 meters from site and we can take our dog on it, and we could wash her off back on the site in their own shower room afterwards. A beautiful pool with easy access for people with disabilities. Food in restaurant good quality and value love the pizzas but drinks a bit expensive. The village 5 minutes in motorhome 10 minutes walking with great seafood bars. All in all a great site will return again.

Friendly and informative staff. Site has good size pitches with individual hook up and water, the surface is large gavel. There is little shade as the trees and shrubs have not fully developed due to it being a new site. There is a bar/restaurant which does meals of standard quality. Free Tapas with drinks. The shower and toilet block are immaculate. There is hot water for clothes washing. There is also a cubicle for showering the dog. The beach is on the opposite side of the road. 10 minute walk into the local village where there is a supermarket, bars and restaurants (a lot closed for the winter). The site is surrounded by cultivating crops which are all grown under plastic sheeting, there is miles and miles of it!

First class camp site with excellent facilities. On arrival we were greeted by the owner who was very pleasant and polite. The site is well laid out and although relatively new much work has been done to ensure the pitches provide some shade and afford some privacy. A lot of new planting has already been done which will further enhance the pitches. The toilet, showers and washing up areas are immaculate and are the best that I have encountered in Spain. There are two pools, a small one which is ideal for children and a very large one for swimmers. The pool surrounds are good and there is a good few sunbeds. There is a small shop and restaurant on site. Wifi access is excellent and we had no issues with the speed. With regard to the location you need to close your eyes to the surrounding poly tunnels and look up to the Andalucian hills which provide a lovely backdrop. Would highly recommend this site as a top notch place to stay.
