A seaside site near Barcelona – yes please. Resort Els Pins is at Catalonia's seaside town of Malgrat de Mar, and so close to its local beach that only an access road separates the sand from the site. Add in the mild Med climate and the setting between Montnegre Nature Park and the sea, and you might rightly think that things are very fine here indeed... This is a popular and lively site, with up-to-date amenities including shower and loo blocks in each camping field, free hot water, disabled and family-friendly facilities and a launderette. There's a big pool with waterslides, a paddling pool with water toys and inflatables, a playground and entertainment during high season from a professional team. A restaurant is also on site, as well as a bar – two things you might also say yes please to on hol…

Fully-serviced earth pitch (comfort)

Liked: Die Anlage ist super groß, die Parzellen sind sehr groß, die Ausstattung ist einfach klasse: Minimarkt, die Pools und jeden Tag Animation. Ein Restaurant und Baar ist auch vorhanden. Direkt am Strand

Disliked: Das Essen im Restaurant ist nicht so lecker, die Pizza bei Aldi gekauft, wahrscheinlich, und einfach aufgewärmt. Die Kinder fahren Elektroroller ohne Rücksicht auf die anderen, und von der Seite der Verwaltung wird nichts unternommen. Ganz gefährlich

Fully-serviced earth pitch (comfort)

Liked: Good sized pitches. Nice cafe bar with food. Shop with very basic items. Mediterranean pool area with very warm pool. Staff curtious. Reception staff helpful.

Disliked: Too far to walk from local amenities. No night entertainment for older generation. The activity & evening entertainment was a fair distance from us & could hear the boom boom boom boom music till midnight, which is not everyone's cup of tea.

Fully-serviced earth pitch (comfort)

Liked: The facilities were good. Liked the pool and that it was opposite the beach

Disliked: The pitches are terrible. I needed wooden ramp/blocks to get my van in and out as every pitch has a extremely high kerb and even then it was still a struggle. The entrance to the site is a joke. It should be through the front beach entrance but because sand has taken over the road and paths it is not possible to drive. You have to enter through a bumpy farm site. You can't leave the site very well either. There are limited buses from a different camp site and walking through sand is not an option. When speaking to the reception they said it was better to get a taxi everywhere which would be very expensive. It was extremely noisy at times and overun with kids. Overall I would not return to this camp due to the location mainly. It wouldn't take much to clear the front and make it walkable and drivable but it is not in a nice location

Garden 2 bedroom lodge (comfort)

Liked: Dobry den. S prateli jsme byli v cevenci 14 dni v resortu Els Pins .Ubytovali jsme se v bungalovu.Bydleni bylo dobre, ciste a cenove vyhodne. Spolecne socialni prostory byly take ciste. More krasne ciste a to je tak asi vsechno dobre, co se o tomto resortu da rici dobreho.

Disliked: K resortu ELS Pins je nutne rici, ze se absolutne nehodi pro rodiny s detmi a lidi stare a s problemy zejmena s pohybem. More je plne ostrych kamenku a vysokych vln takze pokud mate male deti nebo problem s chuzi tak je obrovsky problem se z more dostat , lezete po kolenou a budete radi ze se neutopite protoze se vam nohy propadaji do dna a vlny vas srazi neustale a nemuzete se postavit na nohy a normalne vylezt z more. pro male deti je tento resort absolutne nevhodny zejmena kvuli velkym vlnam a a znacne hloubce ktera zacina blizko od brehu. Dalsi velke zklamani vas ceka v mistni jedine restauraci, ktera v resortu je.Ceny jsou dobre, ale vyber jidel v podstate jako v fastfoodu, ktera dostanete kdekoliv u nas.Cisnici jsou mladi, nejspis studenti na brigade, někdy i neochotni. Pokud si objednavate, je nutne je nekolikrat upozornovat na vasi obednavku .Absolutne neprofesionalni obsluha a vyber jidel mizerny. Prodejna potravin, ktera v resortu je, nema, nebo alespon po dobu naseho pobytu, v nabidce ovoce, zeleninu ani maso. Takze, kdo nema k dispozici auto, nebo nechce/nemuze jit pesky asi 4 km, tak ma smulu. Kapitola sama pro sebe jsou Spanele a Ffrancouzi, kteri v tomto resorte ve velke vetsine jsou. Absolutne nerspektuji jine navstevniky, v restauraci doslova rvou a pokud navstivite bazen v resortu je to jeste horsi .Absolutne netolerantni bezohledni. Moc jsme se na dovolenou tesili a odjeli jsme domu velmi zklamani a URCITE nedoporucujeme tento resort pro spatny pristup k mori , velmi slaba a jedina restaurace a neustali hluk v kempu v kteroukoliv nocni hodinu. Jezdime kazdy rok na dovolenou hlavne do Italie a opravdu pobyt ve Spanelsku se s Italii neda vubec srovna a uz tam Nikdy nepojedeme ,ale rozhodnout se musite sami. Nam se tam vubec nelibilo a pobyt v tomto resorte NEDOPORUCUJI

Fully-serviced earth pitch (comfort)

Liked: Mini Market on site bakery, laundry and number of ladies only showers.

Disliked: Noisy, loud music which was piped through out the site. People were noisy until early hours of the morning and some one liked playing football at 1am on several days.

Liked: Pool areas were lovely. Plenty of showers and toilet facilities. Showers were warm. Shop and restaurant on site. The campsite is literally on the beach. Staff were very helpful and well organised.

Disliked: We couldn't find a chemical toilet disposal point but we didn't ask.

Local attractions

Over seven kilometres of soft sandy beaches await at Resort Els Pins's town of Malgrat de Mar, the popular seaside resort that also comes with a decent range of shops, bars and restaurants, an old market and a good chunk of good-looking architecture including the sixteenth century Church of Sant Nicolau, known because of its size as the 'cathedral of the coast'. Also very close by, the mouth of the River Tordera about 500 metres away is just the spot for some Spanish birdwatching, kitesurfing or windsurfing, and the Marineland Catalunya waterpark is less than a kilometre and a half away. To the east of Malgrat de Mar and across the estuary of the Tordera lies the busy seaside resort of Blanes with more sandy beaches and some steep cliffs; although it's a lively little place, you should be able to find a few quiet little coves here if you want them. And another very fine thing: Malgrat de Mar train station is about a kilometre and a half away and has direct links to Barcelona, for days exploring Las Ramblas, the Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, Camp Nou football stadium, the many museums…
