General

  • Lively family site 10 minutes' walk from the beach in Torreilles
  • 20 minutes from Perpignan and the Yellow Train into the Pyrenees
  • Waterpark, spa and busy programme of activities and entertainment

Ah, the tropics – a splendid place for a holiday. Blue waters, palm trees, beach time, cool cocktails of an evening as you dance the night away to Latin beats. But then – the long flight, the expense, the tropical storms in high summer…

Mais non! For this is not some far-flung island but Les Tropiques in the Mediterranean resort of Torreilles. The eight-acre site is generously bestowed with palms and beaut bougainvillea flowers, and a mere 10-minute amble from the golden sands, but an altogether more wallet-friendly and convenient option for most euro-travellers.

All comers are welcomed here, from those seeking lazy days to the active-as-poss types. If you’re the kind that prefers to fill your days to the brim, gather friends for team sports at the multisports pitch, play a game of pétanque, tennis or table tennis, or head to the gym – there are all sorts of classes as well as all the usual equipment, and you can even enlist the services of a personal trainer should you wish to optimise your workout.

Small people of a similar disposition have two playgrounds (a traditional one for younger guests and an adventure playground for the older ones) and a giant inflatable to fill their hours. That’s the hours in which they’re not ensconced in some sort of craft, game or general silliness at the kids’ club (five days a week in the summer months).

Slow-paced holiday types looking aghast at these levels of activity needn’t worry – there’s plenty of space around the pools in which you can relax while looking out for the nippers as they zoom down the waterslides or splash the hours away in the paddling pools. Or you could trot over to the spa for a soak in the hot tub, a scrub in the hammam or a massage. A beautician and hairdresser are on hand here too to preen you into your most presentable self for your nights out.

And, oh, those nights out – without even having to stray beyond the gates you can dine in the restaurant, take in a show, watch films or sports on the big screen, sing karaoke, dance in the nightclub… phew, it’s pretty much a non-stop party here in the tropics.

    zwembad was ruim voldoende

    Disliked: 

    aankomst:
    we hebben een dag van te voren gebeld met de vraag vanaf hoelaat we op de plek konden.
    kregen te horen de plek is leeg jullie kunnen er direct op.
    om 11.30 uur aangekomen gaan we naar de plek staat er een tent op .
    weer terug naar de receptie kregen te horen dat ze niet weten van wie die tent is we moesten wachten .
    uiteraard teleurgesteld want hebben 1200km gereden en kunnen niet terecht.
    na een uur werr faan vragen maar konden ons nog niet helpen.
    na 4 uur wachten was ik kwaad en heb gezegd dit is niet normaal .
    uiteindelijk kregen we na 5 uur wachten een andere plek nr k3 .
    om 20.00 uur komen de mensen terug die op onze daadwerkelijke plek stonden en hebben we gesproken.
    blijkt dat ze oorspronkelijk plaats 2+ 3 hadden maar plaats 3 ook bezet was .
    in overleg met receptie hebben ze plaats 1 onze plek gekregen .Echter hadden die mensen aangegeven bij de receptie dit ook te melden wanneer wij aankomen .
    helaas deed de receptie net of ze het niet wisten dit tot grote ergenis .we hebben tenslotte voor niks 5 uur moeten wachten eer we de plek konden inrichten .
    hierdoor ook extra kosten gemaakt omdat we niet klaar waren konden we niet koken en moesten we eten gaan halen.

    rumoerig :
    ontzetten lawaaierige camping jeugd loopt om 23.30 uur met harde muziek over de camping tot ongenoegen van vele gasten.

    Sanitair :
    erg smerig bij klachen receptie kregen we te horen dat er van eigenaar is gewisseld en dat men niet zoveel tijd mag spenderen aan het poetsen .
    de stront hing op div toiletten tegen de muur en plafond .

    security:
    op de camping liep security maar sprak de luidruchtige jeugd niet aan .
    de jeugd stond de bonken ennte slaan op de deuren van het sanitair ook hierbij stond de security te kijken maar deed niks ondernemen .
    zelfs de jeugd ging over de deuren heen kijken als mensen aan het douchen waren .hierdoor zijn onze kinderen bang geworden en durfde niet meer alleen naar de wc of douche.
    dit hebben we doorgeven bij de receptie maar werd niks mee gedaan.
    of we zelf de mensen wilde aanspreken op hun gedrag .
    ik heb aangegeven dat dit niet mijn taak is .

    the onsite food was of excellent standard and very reasonably priced

    Disliked: 

    the drinks were massivley overpriced and there was very little choice in the resort as a whole, one bar / restuarant was very much like the other. The area is still under developed and doesnt cater for varied tastes.
    The pitch we were given was very poor standard grass and weeds growing freely and we were on a corner for all to gawp at, in between two shower/WC blocks so the smell was interesting at certain times of the day. The pitch was also uneven and flooded in the rain.
    there was no one on site that could speak English fluently. We got by but its not what we expected.
    The pool area was very small compared to the huge number of pitches available at this site so it was a fight to get a space around it every day

Nice site....shame about the noise! 09/15/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Graham C. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Pitches were well laid out and hedged with cypress trees, oleander and palms. Toilet blocks were plentiful and clean. 10 minute walk to the beach.

    Disliked: 

    The BIG letdown was the noise suffered during most evenings/nights. Two or three times during our eight nights, very loud music was played till 10.30/11.00pm. On two nights at the weekend, even louder music/DJ'ing went on til 2.30 and 3.30am. It was v loud and prevented sleep. I accept that the two later nights were from different neighbouring sites, but this selfish and totally inconsiderate behaviour means we won't be returning to any sites in that area. Wifi was expensive.

Very good place, good location. 09/05/2016

    We were there at the end of August, not too busy, so we got the chance to choose our pitch. The water was warm in the swimming pool, toilets and showers clean, excellent location, you can walk to the beach. Activities in the evening. What else can I ask for 20euros per night? Excellent.

    Disliked: 

    The tight trunks which men should wear at the swimming pool, we had to buy a pair from their shop, 17euros, which are not ideal for the slides, my husband's had a small hole after the first ride on the slide. We bought another pair from the local market(much cheaper) and it happened the same thing.
    If you can't sleep with music then this may not be for you. I think it's from the local disco but it was ok for us, we slept well.

Terrible site - intimidation and stolen belongings! 09/03/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Louise C. Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    There was very little to like at all! This site is loud, brash and very insecure.
    We did have a very pleasant meal at the site restaurant. The food was a bit average - perfectly acceptable though - but it was the lovely and very hard-working staff who won us over. They do deserve a mention because everything else about this place was simply horrible.

    Disliked: 

    We disliked everything about this site. I resent even giving 1 star to this site.

    We had a terrible time from arrival to departure. Damage to our van from a badly sited tree which could easily have been fixed if the owners trimmed a few branches. We witnessed other caravan and motor-home owners suffering the same fate during our stay.

    You know that you're on a downward slope when you regularly discover no toilet paper in the communal dispenser (lots of it discarded on the floor though!) no sign of any soap dispensers in any toilet hand wash sinks and yet pool staff persistently quoting hygiene rules regarding the wearing of tight trunks for men whilst using the pool! What irony! You will be pounced on by the pool police for taking a plastic bottle of water into the pool area but walk around the site and breath in the dope fumes being smoked openly and without regard!

    This site appears to be attracting large groups of arrogant young people who have no regard for appropriate behavior or their fellow guests. They simply want their good time at the expense of everyone else. We had a persistent feeling of intimidation and just didn't feel comfortable being alone in the showers or wash areas. There were too many teenagers poking selfie sticks around and playing offensively worded music at full volume. They were aggressive and a nuisance.

    The site has a serious problem with thieves and we had 2 bikes stolen towards the end of our holiday. Locked and leaning against our caravan, we didn't hear anything because we had been sleeping with fans at full speed to drown out the over-whelming loud noise and music going on in the area throughout the night! We had spent our holiday with a feeling of being scrutinized and watched and had several experiences of people cutting across our pitch (squeezing through hedges!) just to take a shortcut!

    We never once witnessed security patrolling the site and there are gates from the beach access path which are simply left open all day. Anyone can enter which makes a mockery of the barrier and pathetic security man at the main entrance. Apparently the security man is needed on a regular basis to break up fights which occur at the main bar and pool area! When we reported our bike thefts to the police, they were not surprised and stated that thefts in the area are a regular occurrence although the site manager refused to accept this.

    We would not recommend this site for families who value their morals. You have to have trust in your fellow campers and this site just doesn't instill that. There is an undercurrent of intimidation and disrespect.

Location

[[ campsite.name ]] [[ place.name ]]
  • Boulevard de la Plage Torreilles Plage, Pyrénées-Orientales, France, 66440
  • Timezone Europe/Paris +0200 (GMT+02:00)   GPS 42.7677°N 3.0298°E

Directions


From the A9, take the Exit 41 towards Perpignan-Centre. Go in the direction of Le Barcarès on the D83, then towards Canet/St Cyprien on the D81. At the roundabout take the first exit towards Torreilles-Plage. The site is on the left in front of the tourist office of Torreilles.

Local attractions

Should you find time among all the attractions to escape into the outside world, it’ll take you 10 minutes or so to trot down to the beach at Torreilles, where a long stretch of sand awaits for fun and games (or to sleep off the night before, perchance). There’s safe swimming in the lifeguarded area, access for disabled visitors and a dog-friendly area for accompanying canine chums.

If it’s yet more activity you seek, there are pony rides, paintballing games, a go-karting circuit and a jetski park within a 10-minute drive or half-hour walk. For something a little gentler, hire paddleboards, canoes or kayaks from the town's watersports centre to paddle down the Bourdigoul river for a beach stopover. Club-wielders can play a round of golf on the 18-hole course half an hour away.

Heading out of town, 20 minutes’ drive will take you either to the 16th-century Salses Fortress or to Cases-de-Pène to join trips up into the Pyrenees on the famed Yellow Train. It’s also about a 20-minute drive to get to Perpignan, to visit the historic big hitters – the Palace of the Kings of Majorca, the Campo Santo and the Castillet are top picks – or just to poke about in the palm-lined squares and smart arcades. (Keep a particular eye out for the pink marble paving of the Place de la Loge).
