Camping Tauro was almost full, mainly long term stayers. The pitches are reasonable sized, flat and have water and EHU but are lacking in privacy. It is a remarkably quiet site considering its urban location.
The older sanitary block at the lower end of the camp site is well past its sell-by date. Paint peeling from the ceiling and outdated showers, some barely usable. The newer block is better, but still lacking. The wash area for males and females are right in front of the access doors and in full view when the doors are opened. The shower cubicles spray and flood into the area where you undress and dress. It isn\'t very well thought out.
Camp site is in a residential area with no easy or direct access for dog walkers to access green spaces. Just a well used cycle track about 250 metres away accessed via residential streets. The surrounding streets are soiled with dog excreta.Hardly anyone seems to pick up.
Also, the rubbish bins are out on the street and not easily accessed.
We could only find one very small supermarket, more like a pantry and most of the better restaurants in the town are at the other end.
Lots of people like this camp site, but it isn\'t for us.
Big double gravel pitch (Gold) with two sinks on the large pitch. Pitches are sloping which was great for drainage but levelling ramps are needed on some pitches. Toilet facilities in the middle block are brand new and of hotel quality, lots of hot water in the showers and sinks. Work was in progress to what looked like installing sinks for washing. The other two toilet blocks are old but still good. Bar is open every day at 8 and provides bread, the site also does paella and fish and chips on certain days, excellent value for money. Wifi is good and free. Town is a easy ten minute bike ride or a 30 minute leisurely walk, there is a small supermarket two minutes from the site and a large one about 15 mins walk away. The beach is an easy ten minutes stroll. The site staff are excellent and always happy to help (Paco, James and Pursey (may not have the lady\'s name spot on, sorry. The cleaning lady is always chatty and happy to help)). They also have caravan storage and their own shop a couple of minutes drive away. Cracking site, big pitches, free wifi, friendly atmosphere and excellent ablutions. Will be returning for a long term stay in 2019.
Almost a nice site but the permanent pitches taking up most of the site were very untidy and make the site look bad.
We were not told of the almost perfect sanitary block half way down the site but saw a note from a previous reviewer. The one near us was awful and should be knocked down and I wish the receptionist had explained about the new one.
Other than the terrible permanent caravans it would have been a lovely place. They are developing static homes which looked nice.
Bar and Restaurant were fine. Lovely young lady in the restaurant helped us by explaining the food on the menu 5* for her. We did eat there once. fairly standard stuff, palatable.
We asked for a large pitch and were allocated 2 pitches back to back. With a standard we would not have had space for the caravan car and full size awning.
Shame about the permanent caravans and awning as otherwise it would have been a great site (using the new block).
Short 10 minutes (NOT 3 as stated earlier) to the sea and promenade. Nice places to visit in the local hills for walks.
The pool was not ready in June and they started to clean it.for the summer even though it was 25+ degrees.
Put up with the utidy local caravans and it would be OK
Nice large pitch with sink on each one with cold water. Toilets/showers clean and hot water plentiful. The shop was closed and nowhere on site to get bread but a short walk to the shop was ok. 15 minute walk to the beach. No bins or recycling on site but large bin for all waste outside the side gate. Lots of empty Spanish caravans on most of the site which they seem to use at the weekends.
The site is a 15 minute cycle from the centre of Benicassim along a safe cycle way, 3 minutes from the beach and 45 minutes from Castellon Port. There is a small shop within 200m selling local produce and delicatessen goods. There are two restaurants within 200m, frequented by the local Spanish residents, serving very local and excellent tasting dishes. The site restaurant was open for drinks but closed for food during our stay. There were a number of activities such as wine tasting, orange picking, paella lunches laid on with Spanish lessons and local cooking lessons being planned for the future. Within 15minute cycle there is a choice of supermarkets - Mercadona, Lidl, Consume. There is a bus stop immediately outside of the site entrance. Heading in all directions there are some great, and easy, cycle rides. The site owners, now in the hands of the third generation, are the most welcoming we have come across. There is a real focus on customer service aimed at making your stay special. Pitches are delineated with trees, which have been trimmed to make access easier, unusually each pitch has a wash basin and running water. Parts of the site are a little tired however whilst we were there a small team had commenced a renovation and maintenance programme. We would definitely recommend and have already booked a return stay.
