    Being only 10 minutes from a beautiful beach. Also the availability of a ferry from Somo to Santander. Saves taking the car. Somo is a lovely little town. The site manager/ owner was very pleasant .only grass pitches for caravans so not good if weather is wet otherwise very nice. Showe/ toilet facilities were spotless.

    Disliked: 

    The smell from the adjoining farm and the flies were prolific. Couldn’t sit outside because of the flies. Very off putting. Cold water for washing up. No washing machines or hot water for doing laundry. No Wifi. Signal non existent.

From the manager...

Hello,
we love that you felt comfortable even though the flies have bothered you but against nature you can not do anything.
Just tell you that if we have washing machines and free wifi in the bar-restaurant area.

Greetings and see you soon.

    Tuvimos que irnos, sin seguridad del sitio, nadie en recepción. No se proporcionan sábanas limpias, toallas o ropa de cama, pero solo con nuestro dinero, el camping no tiene servicio. No hay a dónde ir si hay un problema y no hay procedimientos de incendio o emergencia. Estamos haciendo arreglos para visitar el sitio de nuevo, pero solo para pedir que nos devuelvan el dinero. Hemos enviado un correo electrónico, pero no hay respuesta. Llegaremos a una hora conveniente para nosotros si no volvemos a escuchar nada. Nuestros cobradores de deudas son minuciosos y experimentados.

    We had to leave, no site security, nobody in reception. No clean sheets towels or bedding provided but only our money taken then the campsite has no service. Nowhere to go if there is a problem and no fire or emergency procedures. We are making arrangments to visit the site again but only to ask for our money back. We have e mailed but no answer. We will arrive at a time convenient to us if we hear nothing again. Our debt collectors are thorough and experienced.

    Disliked: 

    Drinking Water above Black Waste Hole??? Showers Outdoors .
    Incorrect Information on Reception Windows. States Barriers closed between 23.00-07.00, However when we tried to leave at 07.15 to catch a 09.00 Ferry from Bilboa, the barrier would not open! After a few attempts I contacted the Warden (who spoke and understood English on arrival very well)! However on the phone all I got was "No ingles" No, No, No! Fustrated we were going to miss our Ferry, I ran next door and managed to find a lady to explain to him on over phone what was going on. He then told her that the barriers do not open till 08.00? Well we were on 08.24 by then! He then asked her to drive her car to the barrier outside and let me out! We made our ferry by the skin of our teeth. Had we missed it and the pet friendly cabin, I would be taking this further!!!!

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Secluded pitch. Dog friendly. Food in the bar/restaurant was excellent. Short walk to Somo beach, with great views to Santander and a nice surfers paradise.

    Some pitches are located backing onto a dairy farm - so the smell of cow dung is pretty strong!

    It is a very relaxed site with lots of visitors coming for the weekend. The facilities were good and the food in the restaurant was very good.
    It,s location is ideal, either for a stop-over having landed in Santander, or as a base for enjoying the beach at Somo.

    Disliked: 

    Some of the pitches were a little tight, but then again we only have a small caravan.

Local attractions

The fab seaside town of Somo a kilometre and a half from Camping Somoparque is a topping destination for Spanish surf all year round from its wide golden beach, as well as for other watersports like sailing and windsurfing – or you could just snooze the afternoon away with a siesta on its beach…?

Take the ferry across the bay from Somo to reach Cantabrian capital Santander, the spectacular city filled with sights such as the swish villas of the Avenida de la Reina Victoria, the 'Beer Plaza' of San Fernando and the UNESCO-listed cave art and medieval kingdom of Asturias of the Museo de Prehistoria y Arqueología de Cantabria, all under the nineteenth century Mercado del Este and all very much a must-see.

For a quieter vibe, have a day at Cabárceno Wildlife Park 20 kilometres away, home to over a hundred animal species from five continents all roaming wild. The reserve also has a reptile house, restaurants, a play park, botany routes and picnic areas.
