Do you like the combination of sea and mountains? If so, Camping Las Hortensias is the place for you. You are staying here on the green coast of Spain, the Costa Verde. The renowned Parque Nacional Picos de Europa is situated in the area. Moreover, the camping site has direct access to a fine sandy beach.
You will be staying among an abundance of hydrangeas on the grounds. The pitches are located in long rows on a lawn along paved roads. Some have a sea view and some are partly shaded. Rows of trees, hedges and a few buildings provide shelter against the wind. The camping is surrounded by tree-covered hills. The sanitary facilities on the camping site are new and are cleaned daily.
Beautiful sandy beach
It takes less than a minute to walk to the beautiful and sheltered sandy beach, bordering the camping site. For children (possibly for adults, too) this is one big play paradise. The considerable tidal difference will allow you to amble between the rocks, where there are lovely little water pools for children. There is also a great eating establishment at the beach. From here you have a superb sea view. Over weekends, many Spanish day visitors flock to the bay, but during the week the hotel and camping guests have the place virtually to themselves.
Fun and games
Apart from the beach, children will enjoy the playground and soccer field.
Great daily menus
The camping shop has a generous range. Feel like a luxury meal out? The adjacent hotel offers a good daily menu at discounted prices to camping guests.

Liked - The site was in a perfect location and the staff were warm and welcoming
Liked - Location to the beach and lovely hot clean showers
Disliked - No where to obtain drinking water for our motorhome other than the tap for the toilet disposal!
Liked - Really liked this campsite and we were sad to leave. The proximity to the beach is perfect. It was a quiet site and everyone was very respectful of either other. The WC / Shower facilities were kept really clean and were in excellent condition. The on-site shop was basic but there was fresh bread, milk, fruit and veg.
Disliked - The checking in process could have been far more informative. It would have been useful to tell us about the facilities on the site and to have given us a map of the site. The pitch we were allocated was unsuitable for our motorhome but eventually it was sorted, even though I had given the size of our motorhome at the point of booking. It was also frustrating that a key was required to hook up to the electric supply This should have been explained at check in as it took some head scratching to figure out how to connect.
Liked - Great stay on a great site.
Liked - Fantastic location, nice level pitches, tennis court
Disliked - The football pitch had so many divots and holes I feel it was dangerous and the one go I had on it I nearly sprained my ankle, maybe would be better if tarmacced.

Disliked - reception / supermarket is a bit small
Liked - Everything

Disliked - Kids play area could do with a refresh.
Liked - Great access to the beach
Disliked - Play area inaccessible as waterlogged, the campsite needs opening up and the trees cutting back as nothing could dry due to shade, pitches were wet and we had mould on on our tent after a week there. Was very happy to leave and move onto our next site.

The campsite is very well run and spotless.
Very friendly place to stay.
