“Could be better”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of July. Good location for touring the area and the car ferry. We were in our tourer caravan, the pitches were small and felt rather crammed in, certainly not good if you needed an awning. Toilet and Washing facilities were quite extensive, clean & fresh smelling, but no hand wash facilities in the men's WC block and no rinse water for the chemical toilet emptying point. All the time we were there I did not get any hot water from either shower, basin or pot washing sinks, I think the water in the pool was warmer. Pools were good. Rubbish bins were poorley located the other side of the entrance gate near the road. There were a few better pitches down by the canal and there were several empty while we were there, but we were not offered one. Some friends we went with said they had never been offered one in the several visits they had made there. We found the reception staff friendly..

Our journey was great as the team at the reception is awsome!
The prices for both " chalets and pitch" are reasonable, close to the beach, ww2 sites, medieval towns. Concidering we had spent the budget we thought it would be, we keep a good souvenir and are wheeling to come bakc next year.

So here I am in what for all intents is a beautiful rural site located near Pegasus bridge. So I arrive with my mate on the 4th June full of excitement . I had ordered a grand large caravan hell to the expense for 2 of us , luxury a room each. Then I realised it was like living on a David Wilson estate overlooked by every angle my neighbours in my pocket and unable to fart without the far end of the site knowing. So I tried the bar, surly rude and ignored for over 10 minutes then over charged for several drinks. I challenged this received an apology with all the integrity and heart of a child snatching dingo all smiles no sincerity. The chalet ( static caravan) nearly €400 for 3 nights overlooked no welcome pack unless you consider a couple of bin bags n a toilet roll? The wifi I bought for€ 10 useless , as effective as a microwave meal in 1960's London . In short a poor site, poor customer service , arrogance n conceit from the boss and the families of the boss. In short massive room for improvement. X

We camped here for two weeks in August 2013, it was a lovely site although out first two placements for our tent were not acceptable due to the size of our tent, we ended up on an edge of a road but we were happy. The showers were clean but with some unruly children and the washing machines a godsend. We thought this was an ideal spot for touring and covered most of the Normandy coastline, cemeteries, museums and forts. We went via the channel tunnel as we took our dog but if you're just a car the ferry to oustrheum would be ideal. One negative the food on site was extremely basic and there is nowhere in the village to get food. Ideal to walk along the canal to Pegasus bridge. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the weather was amazing!!

We travelled here for 10 nights in July, it was me my hubby plus 2 kids and sister her husband plus 1 child. We were allocated 2 pitches together, nice and big. We had the toilets, showers etc next to us and we found them really clean, lovely and warm showers, cannot grumble at all!! The pool was lovely, very clean, perfect after a days sightseeing. We had the worst storm whilst there in 36yrs, thank god for the great laundry room!! We ate at the restaurant one night, brilliant set menu for 13€, moules steak fresh cheese, really lovely!! There is a canal walk, one direction to Pegasus bridge and the museum which was amazing, the other walk to ouistreham which takes about 1hr with little ones, nice selection of restaurants and bars. Benouville is very quiet, but you can find supermarkets very easily, a car is a must to see the wonderful sights and beaches close by.We only left early as the weather wasn't on our side, however, we really enjoyed the campsite, as a seasoned camper I found some of the grumbles on here un warranted, having stayed at municipal campsites this really was nice and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Desperately tired, I decided to pay more than usual to camp at this family campsite, the place had all the trimmings that I as a single traveller don't usually use, namely the swimming pool and bar/restaurant. The reception seemed a little disorganised when I arrived, with one girl dealing with all the enquiries and checking in as other staff stood around. The pitch was reasonable, if not a little crammed in at the end of a small lane, alongside a mobile home. Having paid over the odds I used the pool, both the indoor and outdoor sections were open, but the connecting door was closed, the pool seemed clean, but was mainly a fun pool, with slides and fountains and minimum depth. The toilets and showers seemed reasonable, except there was no hand washing facilities in the men's, meaning you had to walk to the washing up room, or shower room to wash your hands. The real negative came when the evenings entertainment started, a bingo game with a stupidly loud tannoy system blasting into the crowd, it was way to noisy and went on til gone 11, and the bar continued to be open til after my earplugged self finally got to sleep after 12. The most stupidly annoying thing was the location of the bins out the main gate, right up by the main road, i was pitched close to the entrance and it was still a 500m walk, other campers drove to it!
The noise was the main negative, with facilities stupidly located, if the pool hadn't of been decent I would have dropped it down to a 1 star, the most positive point is its location only a few hundred metres along a canal path to the pegasus bridge memorial

Reviewed 15 November 2011

We booked this site for two nights (the minimum) as a stop over before getting the ferry home. We arrived in the rain, were pointed in the direction of a field at the far end of the site & given little help in finding a pitch. We parked in the only available pitch with electric hook up next to over-flowing bins. The shop and bar were very uninviting and we avoided eating in them. The toilets and showers were dirty and the showers barely worked - a lot of effort was required for a trickle of water. The only advantage of being so far from the main entrance was that we weren't disturbed by the large groups of teenagers late at night. On a positive note the area is beautiful and we had a lovely day away from the site exploring the Normandy coast, also it was very convenient for the ferry. However I would not return, very disappointing.

Room Tip: Don't book this site!
