A beautiful clean site, great ambience and friendly staff 07/13/2017

  • Liked: 

    A beautiful and exceptionally clean site with very friendly & helpful staff. Staff spoke good English. Loved the whole ambience of the place. Offers incredibly good value daily 3 course menu for 10euros. Nice swimming pool - need to wear hats, so take with you or purchase at site. Near to some lovely beaches/coves/villages/towns both by bike and car. Good cycling area. Would definately go again and recommend for a short or longer visit - we were there for 5 nights and sad to leave.

    Disliked: 

    Had to pay 1euro for wifi, which isn't a lot but often didn't work. Could get 15mins free occasionally

    Friendly staff. Great little shop, mini arcade

    Disliked: 

    Antiquated pool rule....you have to wear a bathing cap........plus no chairs to sit on or lie down on. The spaces for vans and tents is so tight you can hear each other brushing teeth!! Would be fine in low season but august felt overfull, overrun and clostophobic.
