General

  • Former tropical garden centre transformed into a charming campsite
  • Covered swimming pool and on-site bar restaurant
  • Barbecues encouraged

Would you like to know why Camping Parque Tropical on the Andalusian coast is called this way ? Well, it's because it's set on a very particular site, a former tropical garden centre blazing with exotic plants and flowers, that's why.

And would you like to know another extremely positive feature about this welcoming Málaga park? Barbecues are positively encouraged. Another...? Its location at the foot of the Sierra Bermeja only five minutes from the nearest beach.

On site, you'll be thrilled with all amenities on offer as the covered swimming pool open all year round (it's now the perfect moment for us to urge you to take a look to the site pics), free wifi and a bar and restaurant. The modern facilities include a mini market and shower/loo blocks powered by solar energy.

    We loved this site so much we extended our stay. Site has large sunny pitches (or shaded if you prefer). Warm welcome from Laura following very promt email replies. All staff very friendly and efficient, including the restaurant.
    Everywhere clean and tidy. Toilet block slightly dated but everything worked as it should with plenty of hot water and not silly push button showers! Swimming pool was nice and clean too.
    Great site and would definitely re-visit. WiFi was good during daytime, poor at night when busy.

    Disliked: 

    Location not brilliant but if it was beach front it would no doubt lose its charm.
    350m to beach not so bad.

A big disappointment 11/10/2016

    The best thing about the site was the welcome and overall helpfulness of the young lady at Reception. She was excellent. There was a good ambience, probably encouraged by the closeness of the pitches and the overall good nature of the campers.

    Disliked: 

    The sanitary facilities left a lot to be desired. At no time did we see anyone cleaning them and they looked anything but sanitary. The hot water supply was uncertain. The fact that one had to put used toilet paper in bins without a lid did not help the smell of the place. Being next to a very fast main road meant that sleep was hard to come by. It was very poor value for money as we had previously stayed at an exemplary site for less.

From the manager...

Good afternoon,

We feel has also found health facilities, every day of the week early disinfected with bleach all comforts and facilities.

Also explain that cleaning not only has to do with the campsite if not with other clients as they have to respect the Intalaciones to good use to all, hubeise been of help to say in reception if something was really dirty to have been solved at the time.

The bins have its cover but by misuse this week tubimos to remove them. This year we improvements around the block services

For us it is very important your opinion.

Thanks for visiting us.

Kind regards.

  • Timezone Europe/Madrid CEST (GMT+02:00)   GPS 36.4535°N 5.0809°W

Directions


Follow the A7/E15 towards Cadiz. When you reach 162km (junction) take the exit signposted Selwo and you'll see the campsite.

Bus 27 (Marbella - Estepona) stops 300m away.

The closest train station is Fuengirola (40km).

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

How much would you like to go and see some jolly and bouncing dolphins? The marine mammals, penguinarium, birds, snakes and guided tours of the Selwo Aventura Dolphinarium are only a kilometre from Camping Parque Tropical.

Paintball, golf, diving and tennis are all within an hour as well as Gibraltar and its Barbary Macaques colony on Gilbraltar Rock, the only wild apes in all of Europe.

Marbella and Málaga are also within an hour's drive: do to the former to spot celebrities, party, walk the ancient city walls and wander around the Old Town and Orange Square; at the ancient and latter town, go visit the Museo Picasso Málaga, Roman Theatre and have a walk along the Paseo del Parque.

Within the same distance, we'd also recommend day trips to the mountaintop city of Ronda (it reminds us of Gondor) and to Puerto Banús, the very swish (and enviable) marina on the southwest of Marbella, highly regarded among posh individuals.
