Camping Sandaya Cypsela Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

About 10 minutes from the beach of Platja de Pals lies this wonderful resort. The Cypsela grounds are well designed, there are a few nice restaurants (I can recommend the churros), a huge swimming pool and a bowling pub. Perfect for families with a GREAT animation team. Cypsy the starfish was the big star of the holiday. Lot of GB, NL and ES visitors. The only minus; the laundrette is quite expensive (7,65 per wash) and is not clean. All in all 5 stars, we would certainly return here!

Stayed: July 2014

Third time at this resort and the last, we have just returned from a 12 night stay with no sleep before 3 am the noise is terrible, it's overrun with kids drinking shots and running around screaming and shouting, playing football till 3-4 am, the security is a joke they have no powers to do anything they just tell them to go away in a non too polite manor,
If you like all night partying and don't like sleep this is the place to go!
If you have a family stay well clear, on our second to last night we had a football kicked against our van so hard it rattled the windows at 3am, twice I had to ask women to move on from talking on their phones outside my bedroom window at 2am for 20 mins,
Also the entertainment is very very loud you have no chance of sleeping before 12.30 with this booming out, then you have the kids and people returning from the entertainment for the next hour or so, I have never commented on here before I just feel so angry with the terrible management on this site that allows this to happen.
Avoid avoid avoid at all costs!!!!!!!
This used to be a very nice quiet site

i have just returned from a good family holiday spent in Cypsela Resort, the campsite and facilities were of a good standard and clean.
Our accommadation was via Eurocamp and not great, poorly maintained and dirt from last year at least under couches and fixtures - the mobiles are old and poorly kept.
my mobile was reasonably clean however others in the area were really badly cleaned and had no equipment. the Eurocamp staff are all very young and no manager was evident

the kidsclub is badly supervised and badly organised, my children age 4 & 6 were allowd to leave alone and return to our mobile without a second though by the supervisors.
they changed the time of closing as suited themselves and on one occasion left 15mins early with our children left in the playground to await collection unsupervised!!

Arrived on the 15th June 2014 as a family with 4yr old and 11mth old. First thing we noticed was the security personnel were very observant of vehicles and pedestrians coming into the resort which was a positive thing. Must wear wrist bands and vehicle must have permit displayed. Cypsela is not like Cambrilles. Its on a very large site but its well spaced out. Its a much quieter place and your not treated like a number but as a guest. The workers do a great job keeping the place clean. The shower blocks are kept pristine and great for washing infants and toddlers in the baby/toddlers baths upstairs. The supermarket is very reasonabley priced for essentials. If you are a coeliac they do gluten free crispy rolls on site freshly baked. Pool is very large and crystal clear. Toddler pool colder but perfect for them and the water slides went down a treat with daddy and the 4yr old! Dont recommend the restaurant. Staff not efficent and rather lazy. English not good either. Pals beach 5min drive or take free Cypsela Bus from resort. Kids club not great as they dont really entertain the kids they just paint or draw. Sports centre on site with tennis courts, ping pong tables and large trampoline. Plenty of playgrounds dotted around. Noticed a lot of Irish, like ourselves, at the resort and with Gerona Airport only 40mins away its a short enough drive. Will consider Cypsela again in the near future.

Room Tip: If booking with Canvas, Kel Air, or direct with Cypsela ask for Zone A,B OR C. After that your put d...

First week in September, in Costa Brava , crowds dissipated, weather balmy, enjoyment maximised.

Just the wife and I, in a 2 bed van.we have been six times before , last visit 2009, from reviews looks like we missed out on Cypsela slip from glory .
The park has all the amenities you old wish for, a FAB ( warm) pool with diving boards, bars, great takeaway, pleasant outdoor restaurant, lovely tree lined pitch avenues, very clean, secure , great on site shop with reasonable prices, and a great bakery...then loads of stuff for the youngsters including indoor bowling.
Pals beach (huge) is lose by, regular shuttle service, butif with car the local beaches are a complete joy. Just get a map start at Begur, and carry on around the coast ( Sa Tuna , Tiramisu, favourites of ours). Evenings in Begur, Pals are a joy too.

We found it very quiet, and the people that were there , close to use at least, were pleasant and courteous.
Went with keycamp, vans well positioned in a quiet area behind the shop area.( Note to keycamp, van/outside furniture,area, was simply not clean, all around us commenting, not just us.)

Well done Cypsela, helped by going in a quiet period, but no complaints from us.

been going to cypsela resort for nearly 20 years over the past few years the old owners left and things changed,not the same family fun atmosphere new staff and new attitudes to there guests.went last september when things there where really bad.no bar open and a complete lack of any regard for guest happiness.

what a difference this year new owners for the bar and restaurants new staff as well as most of the older ones ,new facilitys new bar ,new water slide,improved camping pitches ,they have certainly realised what an immense place cypsela is .

any one wanting a family holiday either touring or renting you wont find better in europe.

see you again in june.

We loved this camsite and booked with Kelair for very good value. Pools are deep but this really helped our 6 and 7 year olds swimming to come on. We rented bikes for all and used these to get around within the campsite. Only downside is that the boke rental from reception should include helmets, they should not charge extra for them - this is very bad example. Signposts on the cycle paths to the beach would be very useful. Kelair reps were excellent again this year.
