General

  • Four-star campsite located in Saint-Jean-in-Monts in the Vendée
  • In a pine forest, only 800m from the beach
  • Free wellness center

Camping Le Tropicana is located at the heart of a pine forest in a lovely hilly setting. It is 800m from the beach and 400m from several walking and cycle paths.

The campsite has indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a paddling pool and waterslides. You can also enjoy the wellness centre with sauna and massaging whirlpool jets for free. There is a fitness room (available free of charge), a multi-purpose sports field, tennis court, table tennis, pétanque area, playground and games room. No need to cook as there is a bar, restaurant with take-away meals and a bakery delivery service in July and August.

For your entertainment there is a kid's club (ages 5 to 12), activities for teenagers (including barbecues, sports tournaments and night walks in the woods). Otherwise, enjoy strolls and activities in the forest, relaxing activities on the beach and evening entertainment such as karaoke, disco, family games, and broadcasting of matches.

    The pitches were good and the site was clean and well maintained staff were helpfull

    Disliked: 

    The swimming pools were dangerous for adults and kids alike very slippery on one of the pools where slate has been used all around the pool making if like an ice surface slipped over myself and my children and watched countless others do the same

    A great campsite with a real French feel. Very helpful at reception and rearrange a pitch so another family could have a pitch close to us. Good entertain but mainly in French. Lovely new toilet block. Just a short walk to the beach and supermarket. Loved the sauna and steam room.

    Disliked: 

    No toilet roll in toilets.

Pleasant site with European feel, suitable for all ages. 17/08/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Andrew W. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    We turned up at the pitch and thought "how are we going to fit the tent on there?". We did and the pitch size was more than adequate, without being overly generous. The receptionist was fantastic on arrival - we turned up unable to find our pump to blow up our tent - she directed us to a shop and bought one. We hired a fridge - this was a fantastic bonus - and the same receptionist assisted us in borrowing the correct power adaptor to run it.
    The site was very clean and well run.
    The entertainment staff were friendly and fun.
    The pool complex was excellent.
    The petanque and table tennis tables were never too busy.
    The food in the bar was of a high standard.
    All in all we had a lovely holiday.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet block being shut at 22.30 leaving just one toilet and sink. On certain busy nights in the bar I felt that this could have been extended to 00.00.
    The children would have preferred a few more English children to play with, but this did not impact our holiday. Everyone was very friendly. But this might become a decision on whether we return or not.
    A small shop would have been useful, but I can understand the reasons for not having one with a Super U just a short walk away.
    No soap or toilet paper provided.

    Swimming facilities, very clean and tidy site, would highly recommend.

    Disliked: 

    didn't like the fact the toilets have no tissue or soap in them, but from speaking to a few people this seems to be common practice in France so be prepared. NB: Grass pitch was in fact dust and sand, but I learned to live with it.

    We really loved this site. We have a pretty large tent, but the pitch was huge, plenty of room and a lovely position.
    The toilet/shower block close to us was very clean, but most of us used the lovely new block, as they were amazing!
    The Reception staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough to help you.
    We will most definitely be returning here! Lovely clean beaches....all together a great holiday and we didn't want to come home.
