We just stayed overnight on our way from Santander, though it took a little longer to get to the site than I thought. As with many sites I guess it could feel quite crowded in high season, if it was full. We had plenty of room and had the option of sun or shade. The bar/restaurant was open and the food was simple but good. Reception staff were friendly and helpful though the same couldn\'t be said of the bar staff.
The site is in a rural area and the nearby village is very small.
Handy site for getting off the ferry nice to cycle into Comillas. Showers and toilets good plenty of hot water. Pool was open even though the weather wasn\'t very warm..Stayed for a few days.
Nicely positioned site but once again No view from our pich.. or indeed any pitch that we could see..a common fault in Spanish sites. Otherwise perfectly pleasant.
Although a narrow gate on entering this great little site offers a friendly reception with some English spoken. Some long pitches allow you to stay coupled which is great for towing a car trailer or even a caravan. Small restaurant offers good quality food and a friendly face. Reception staff allowed us to stay past the normal check out time as our ferry was much later in the evening. In all worth the drive out to this site if your intention is to drive on through Spain the following day or waiting for the ferries to travel home.
Nice site with friendly helpful staff. Toilet block a bit old fashioned but has a bio award & is spotlessly clean. Some pitches large enough to leave the car & caravan hooked up. ideal for ferry ports but let site know in advance in case ferry delayedl
Surprisingly open late October. Very quiet with all seasonal caravans stored off pitch. A good walk to the coast but worth the effort on a fine day. Booked for one night but stayed three. Good stop-off for Santander ferry.
Nice little site set in woodland very close to pleasant villages. Too far to walk to coast, need car or scooter. Toilet block old fashioned but very clean with ample very hot water. Very tranquil in September but pool closed as per normal. Good for couple of days to relax or go off visiting the area and beaches.
We stayed 8 days. It is an excellent place to visit the excellent surroundings. You must visit Santillana del Mar, Comillas and San Vicente de la Barquera, their nice beaches and more.
The staff were excellent, helpful and kind
We stayed at this site in a caravan for 5 nights in July 2010. The staff were friendly and helpful on arrival and allowed us to choose our own pitch. The shower/wc facilities were of a good standard and the number provided were adequate for the number of campers. The pitches were a reasonable size for a car, caravan and awning. The site was within easy access of the coast in a quiet, traffic free location.
