It had been a number of years since our first visit to this campsite. It was immediately obvious that little had changed. The location is excellent, especially for regular theme park attendees. The resorts of Nice, Juan les Pins and Cannes are easily accessibleby bus and train, 300 yrds away.
You have to be aware that the prices in this region are high, especially drinks, but the site bar provides a happy hour at 7.00pm daily, which is very reasonable. We found that the bar and restaurant were resaonably priced, but you felt that you were being fleeced having to pay to use the pool and especially the sunbed (mattress) at 3 earos hire. These mattresses were old years ago. It is also outrageous to ban inflatables/floats in the pool, with the exception of the camps own floats, which can be hired at around 5 euros for half an hour. The main reason I have downgraded the camp is the public toilets, particularly those at the pool. They are wooden, worn out shacks with no toilet rolls that just look bug ridden.
This site has been popular for many years and lives on its past reputation. There is little competition therefore they are resting on their laurels.
