We have just returned from 8 days on this site. The site itself is huge (but that seems relatively normal for Spain) but it does mean location is important. Some parts would be quite a distance from the main amenities and beach but if you had bikes or hired them that would be no problem. The site is very clean and is very well maintained. It is divided into areas for camping/caravans etc and mobile homes. We stayed in a mobile home (with Lifestyle holidays - more on that side later) and I have to say the regimented rows and rows of all different sorts of mobile home was a bit off putting. The camping area, especially the shaded woodland area is very nice and the pitches all looked to be a very good size.
The amenities are good with the best supermarket we have ever seen on a campsite. As has been previously reported it is not overpriced and stocks just about everything you need except fish. The bread stall is very good and the orange juice, freshly squeezed is exceptional. The staff at reception were mostly helpful apart from when we asked questions about the surrounding area and things to do, when the knowledge level seemed to dip a bit.
As mentioned above we stayed for the first time with Lifestyle holidays in an Emerald moibile home. NOrmally we go with Eurocamp and tend to go for the higher end of the range of mobile homes. With Lifestyle you get what you pay for, if you accept this you will be fine. The mobile home was very clean and relatively new but quite small (and we were only a family of three) and sadly the pitch we had had a scenic view of many other mobile homes or a 12ft concrete wall next to the waste management centre. The deck was not attached to the mobile home as expected but to the side of the mobile home in quite an overlooked area. Inside the mobile home it did have all you needed and was stocked with new equipment.
With Lifestyle you can chose your pitch and so take note when you go if you wish to return as some pitches are infinately better than others.
We went to Estartit and enjoyed the boast ride around the islands (though not for those who suffer motion sickness so beware). Estartit has some great restaurants and is worth a visit for a stroll around the harbour, the nice beach and pretty streets.
The beach at the campsite is nice and relatively young child friendly. There is an initial dip into the sea but then it shallows off for quite a way so made for some good wave jumping and mini surfing. We went in June and the sea was warm enough for my cold phobic daughter.
Overall the site did grow on us as the days progressed and yes we would return but in a more planned way now we know what to go for.
