It is a number of years since I last went camping so was a little apprehensive as I took my young 9yr old son for his first camping experience.
I went with Canvas Holidays who are great in every way from the booking, cleanliness of Tent and support and information from the Representatives who live on site.
This site is amazingly spotlessly clean and there are a lot of staff in every area so no need to wait.
Internet signal is excellent on wifi which costs $5 for 10 hours, you can log off to save minutes
We arrived late but one of the 4 restaurants on site were helpful in making us something good to eat even though they were closed.
This site is in woodlands with plenty of shade and there are more than enough shower and toilet blocks, the water was controllable from hot. The shower blocks also have little shower rooms for children which I thought was excellent.
The shops on site were well stocked with fresh goods, open all day till late and the prices were very reasonable.
All the staff were very helpful and friendly, some spoke enough English to avoid any confusion.
The 6 pools seemed to be spilt between the higher level up the hill where the fabulous Robin hood restaurant (open Evenings) is next to the top pools (2) that also has a café and bar with a pool and football tables. A great top quality Menu, it’s the place to eat for the evening Dinner.
The cold spina draught beer is excellent (Warsteiner), they also have bottles of Italian beers. Food consists mainly of Burgers Pizzas etc and is very good at a reasonable price.
The lower pools, (4) were well set out, very clean and orderly, a nice shallow pool for the younger ones with a fountain too.
There is another bar and café here that also sells great fresh Italian icecream. (gelato). All very reasonably priced.
My Son had a great time and made new friends from different nationalities.
We stayed on the site the whole week as there was no need to go off site for anything, only the sea or beach.
There are parks here too and sports activities, Tennis courts etc
I highly recommend this site and will visit here again next year
