Amfibietrek is quite a unique experience, but a great one. We booked last minute and so stayed in the small tents, with 3 in a row. They are as basic as it gets and in future I would book one of the bigger family tents with 2 smaller ones, just for the storage shelves alone.
It frustrated me that you have to supply your own bedding, we brought a sheet and light fleece blanket, but along with towels this is a significant contribution to the measly 15k luggage allowance. It is possible to buy these cheaply in the nearest town, which I would do on a repeat visit.
Great atmosphere and a high spot was the way the teens all made friends with French, german, Dutch, Belgian and Finnish friends.
Food is basic as everyone has commented, but I did love the relaxed atmosphere.
The one day team cooking is also a great way to bond.
Be prepared for the late disco they have one night over the weekend!
Showers are adequate.
Santa Lucia beach is beautiful, uncommercialised. The village is small, with a couple of great little restaurants.
Kayak hire no problem.
We ended up not doing other courses due to winds.
Take one of the boat trips down the coast they are stunning.
Washing machine in the opposite campsite.
We hired a car and while not essential if I were to return I would definitely get a car again.
All in all, it is no frills, but considering we got very cheap Ryanair flights it was a great relaxing holiday and as cheap as chips. As long as you are not expecting Eurocamp style luxury you will be fine.
