Just stayed at Camping Pointe St. Gilles (22-29/8/2010) via Matthew holidays in one of the mobile homes and having stayed at other sites whilst touring I'm sure you'll find a lot better if you keep searching.
On the positives, the location is very good with a short stroll down to the beach and town at Benodet, although there is a much nicer and quieter beach at Kemper near Mousterlin if you drive 10 mins from campsite.
Pool complex is the main redeeming feature of the site which is very popular though as per other reviews, the 'bridges' over the pool sections are very dicey and there is never enough sunloungers - something so simple for the site management to sort out but seem to have failed to do.
Mobile home we stayed in (G12) was very basic, particularly kitchen equipment, so be sure to pack stuff if you think you'll be doing a lot of cooking/bbq yourself - or get ready to hit the Carrefour in Benodet to stock up (avoid the site shop which apart from the daily baguette/croissant run is completely overpriced).
Finally it still fails to amaze me the number of holiday locations who try to charge for WiFi use which costs the site management peanuts to operate - at this site they wanted 5 euros for 30 mins connectivity (only available near the pool) - scandalous - this should be as free as tapwater....
Good luck if you choose to go, if the weather is excellent then many of the niggles I've highlighted won't matter, but if you've time to research other sites then I think you'll find better options.
