Expensive site, very small pitches, cramped and we were charged a mid- season rate (campervan and 2 adults) when only one toilet block was open and the swimming pool was closed. Also they refused to charge our credit card with euros and demanded we paid British pounds on our credit card - which costs us more but they claimed they get a better rate!!

:( very disappointing and the most expensive site we stayed in the whole of Spain and Portugal. Shame there are not alternatives in the area.

Excellent for visiting the city. 20/30 minute walk and regular bus back. Pitches only ok. Bar ok did not use restaurant. The prize is expensive but is very convenient. Site is around the back of the shopping mall so follow signs not sat nav.

The site is very steep, with careful consideration of approach required. The site is under renovation so reception, bar and restaurant not available. My wife informed me the facilities will be great when complete. 5 minute walk to bus stop, 10 minutes max bus ride. Good, although water went cold very quickly. Staff were very pleasant and helpful but you had to ring a bell to “summon” them. Price in February seemed high but you are at a pilgrimage site. Sports, a basketball court. Child play area. No food and drink available onsite however large, very good and cheap supermarket with great choices 5 minutes walk away.

Bar staff not very welcoming. Very little eye contact. Provided nibbles to all locals with their drinks without question. We had to buy ours. Another table of non Spanish were not given a good reception either. After just coming from Portugal where the people were absolutely amazingly friendly and kind, this is an absolute culture shock!!

Come at it from the right end, or you are faced with quite a hill. The site is steep, pitches are terraced and most are small and a bit cramped. Don't expect too much and you'll not be disappointed. It's quite expensive for what it is, and you only get 5 amp electricity. Where we were, we could pick up the free WiFi no problem. On leaving our GPS wanted us to turn left out the exit, to get us back onto the main road. Don't. Further along is a no entry sign. The city is, however a real picture and worth the effort.

Good situation within easy walk of the centre. The receptionist/manager dismissed the ACSI card and identity card and insisted on passports. On checkout he put through payment in sterling without giving me the choice. It was later that I found this out. Learning curve here!!

This is a good site for visiting Santiago which is a very attractive city. There are buses into the city from near the site and it is also possible to walk there in about 30 minutes. The site itself is not particularly attractive, and vans are packed closely together with little privacy. The facilities are satisfactory.

The location makes this site. It was so easy to visit the amazing city, by walking or an easy bus ride. A map was supplied to show the route and bus number. I didn’t see the swimming pool or cafe so I’m unable to comment on them. The grounds are rather rundown with a broken concrete roads, plenty of shade from trees and pitches close together. The night we stayed it was noisy with bangs from fireworks and loud music from a nearby event, just unlucky I guess.

Water in the taps and showers was lukewarm at best in the evenings, despite reassurance by staff that it was hot. Clearly the power was being switched off. We had to ask for lights to be enabled in the toilets at night. Power to sites was also switched off during the day. The site is very convenient for the city centre but over priced for what you get.

This is a good site for visiting Santiago, but not recommended for a long stay. As others have said, pitches are cramped and unkempt. It’s also on a steep hill so you’ll get used to the smell of clutch smoke......pitches are difficult to get on to without a motor mover on your caravan. For motorhomes they’re OK, though, again expect your clutch to be tested....(SEE TIPS BELOW). It’s also expensive, especially for the facilities. Toilets need modernising but are clean.

Good bar though and staff are helpful and English speaking. Getting to the centre of Santiago is really easy on the Number 4 bus, 5 minutes walk from the site, every 30 mins for €1 ! And they run all day up to 22:30, even Sundays.

TIP : When you arrive, park OUTSIDE the entrance (there’s space on the road) and go in, book in and find your space first, then go into the site; you’ll Get a better run up the hill and easier access to your pitch. Always try the lower pitches first, the upper levels are tricky to get to (that’s British understatement for you....!)
