Off camping in Benidorm? Lever yourself into prime position with a berth at budget-friendly Camping El Raco, surrounded by trees in an area with numerous shops and bars, and less than 15 minutes' walk from both Levante Beach and Aqualandia waterpark: you'll probably want to raise a glass to that.

    On bus route to Benidorm centre. Friendly receptionists. Good sized pitches.

    Disliked: 

    Not enough washing, drying machines. Poor service at bar on site. We were ignored at bar and a Spanish man was asked what he wanted as soon as he walked in!

From the manager...

Thank you for your comment on our facilities and campsite staff.

In the camping and in the Bar Restaurant Racó all the clients are welcome, we do not attend by nationalities. It could have been at a time when the waiters were very busy and did not realize their presence, we are sorry for that.

We wish to see you again soon

Excellent site , friendly ,helpful staff, in convenient location 24/11/2018

  • Liked: 

    The staff on reception were so helpful and friendly, explained about the best offers and helped immediately with a problem we had getting tv reception. The location is near to bars and shops, and the number 10 bus runs every 15 mins just up the road and takes you to the beach for 1 euro 50.{ walking took us OAPs about 25 mins] The indoor swimming pool was a lovely place to swim. We could easily get to the market held on Sundays and Wednesdays about 15 mins away. Just one comment,it would be nice if there was a place for books and magazines to be exchanged, perhaps in the restaurant area in a small cupboard.

    Disliked: 

From the manager...

Thank you very much for your kind and descriptive comment.

A pity you would not have asked in reception for our library and social room where to sit down to read or change books.
We look forward to your visit.

    Receptionist Far to Slow & Not Very Helpful

From the manager...

We were sorry that our plots were not suitable for your expectations.
On the dates of the accommodation we were almost complete and the 10 free plots that were left were probably not the best.
We hope to have your confidence for other occasions.
See you soon

Excellent campsite 29/08/2018

  • Liked: 

    The pitches were very large. The showers and toilets were spotless. The bar had Amstel on draught and only 2.40euro per pint. The restaurant was very good. The on-site shop had a wide verity of produce including fresh fruit and vegetables. The campsite was within walking distance from all bars, restaurants and nightlife.
    We had a fantastic time and will be back.

    Disliked: 

    August is not a good month to sleep in a tent! It was very very hot at night and we didn’t have much sleep! This was our own fault really haha

From the manager...

We work hard to meet customer expectations and we love to know we're getting it.
Thank you very much for your great score and for your kind comment.

  • Liked: 

    Brilliant location with one long road that takes you into town and to the beach.

    Make sure you get a 4 tree pitch and then they will put a cover over your pitch for free to stop the sun from getting too hot in your tent.

    Electric is very cheap. We stayed for 5 days and it was less than 1 euro.

    Shop very well stocked, very cheap and with very friendly staff.

    Disliked: 

    The drinking water is not very nice
    Rude long term residents on the campsite that make you feel very unwelcome
    The pitches are gravel and not really suitable for tents
    on the saturday night big noisy spanish families arrived and were very noisy until past midnight. Better patrol of quiet hours would sort out the situation.

From the manager...

Merci pour votre commentaire. Nous aimons que vous aimiez Raco.

Il est vrai que l'eau dans la région a une teneur élevée en minéraux, en particulier le calcium, de sorte que ce n'est pas une eau fine et douce, mais parfaitement potable.

Comme vous le savez bien, toutes les personnes ne sont pas les mêmes, il y a des personnes exceptionnelles, merveilleuses et bonnes, c'est de trouver la bonne personne

Le mois le plus chargé de l'année et un week-end...

Salutations et nous espérons pouvoir compter à nouveau sur votre entreprise bientôt.

Local attractions

Those bonzer beaches first, of course (well, perhaps after a beer or cocktail): Benidorm has over four miles of sand in its popular and good-looking beaches of Poniente and Levante – as well as glittering nightlife, its Old Town and five fab family theme parks. Across from the beach, the waters of Benidorm Island are where to spot local marine life.

Away from the resort for day trips, try Altea fishing village and its Old Town filled with the stalls of artists (look out too for the blue dome of its church and its narrow alleyways); the clifftop houses and the castle of Guadalest village; hiking the trails from the Moorish castle of Finestrat and the mountains of Tárbena; visiting the Ethnographic museum at Villajoyosa, and seeing the Palmeral at Elche, the biggest palm grove in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Calpe, a tourist resort at the foot of the Rock of Ifach, is now a nature spot and has spectacular views.

Two other well-known tourist options in the area are lively Alicante, again with an Old Town, and the city of art and science Valencia, to see its cathedral and the Miguelete, La Lonja, North Station, Serrano Towers and Quart de Dos Aguas Palace.

And wherever you end up, also very much recommended is Spanish cuisine: make a meal of rice and fish from the coast including black rice, arroz a banda, peix cauldron, paella aladroc, les pilotes de dacsa, les cokes, la olleta de blat...
