As previously mentioned, a lost opportunity indeed. This site is in a lovely area of countryside with a very regular 24/7 direct bus link to Madrid right outside the site. Friendly staff and residents, nice bar serving simple meals and reasonably priced drinks with free in bar, also this has to be by far the quietest Spanish site we've encountered - it's very popular with families from Madrid at weekends and gets pretty full, but after 11pm is completely silent. Wifi is free at the bar but with a very weak signal - a good excuse for another beer . . .
However, although the site was 'extensively refurbished' in 2008 (apparently), it's very early 70's in design and doesn't seem to have been maintained since. If you can find a shower that isn't broken, there is plenty of hot water and the old and worn facilities are cleaned regularly - but once something is broken, it seems to stay that way. It wouldn't take much work or investment to make this a first class site, especially with such a fantastic bus service to the city.
The local town of Manzanares a couple of miles west is worth a visit, especially when the weekend craft market is on.
Over all this site had an 'unloved' feel about it and perhaps could be best described as a missed opportunity. Whilst the men's toilet facilities were acceptable this was not the case in the women's where at 4pm the floors were strewn with toilet paper which remained there until the following morning. Additionally the area allocated to the permanent accommodation is best described as a 'shanty' town. We will not be returning.
