“Fabulous Site - I Want To Go Back ASAP!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2012

I have just returned from a five-day stay in a motorhome at Camp Globo Rojo and I couldn't have wished for a better campsite! The pitches are quite close to each other but they are very well shaded and kept immaculately tidy. The shower rooms and wash-up rooms are spotless and seem to be cleaned throughout the day and the shower pressure is fantastic too (a really strong jet and easy to control temperature). There was fresh bread cooked on the premises with all the basics at reasonable prices in the on-site supermarket. The pool is immaculately clean with lifeguard on duty and there is all sorts of sporting equipment available. There seemed to be a lot of Spanish guests on site and the beach was not too touristy.....so I feel that I got a bit of the true flavour of Spain. There was entertainment some nights and the restaurant/bar was very reasonably priced and very good quality.The beach is just across a road and railway line, the beach is a very fine grit, patrolled by lifeguards but very uncommercialized with just a few beach bars. All in all a wonderful place to stay and I would most definately recommend it.

I stayed at this campsite last year and it is by far the best campsite I have ever stayed at. The staff are really friendly and will go out of their way to help you, the showers and toilets seem to be cleaned constantly and the facilities are excellent. There is a bar where the drinks are not expensive and a restaurant too, although we did not eat there.
The only downside was the pitches are on the small side. We stayed in a small pitch and there is just enough room for a midsize tent and a car. There are big pitches too and I would definitely advise getting a large one if you are anymore than 2 people. Overall this did not affect the enjoyment of the holiday and we have already booked to return this year, can't wait!

We have been going to Globo Rojo for more years than I care to remember. We started before the current owners took it over. It was always a comfortable site, but after they moved in the site became something special. I believe the family run it in such a way they would want it if they were camping there and this is probably why many families return year after year as we do.
The site is probably the cleanest I have ever been to on the continent and The British Isles with staff cleaning the facilities throughout the day. The grounds are immaculate and the pitches are large and shaded. There is constant hot water for showering and washing up. All the staff are very friendly and helpful.
There are lots of facililities on the site including a restaurant, bar, small shop, superb swimming pool ,always with a lifeguard, play area, sports area, laundry facilities, WiFi. and sun terraces. We sometimes eat at the restaurant, the food is very good and the prices reasonable.
The site is in an unspoilt area of the coast. The sea is across the road, the beach is always clean and a lifeguard is in attendance.
Whilst the site is family friendly and safe it also allows for relaxation if you do not have children.
We have spent July and August there in the past and we hope to continue this pattern but staying into September as well.

Great family run campsite in a very Spanish (Catalan) part of Spain. The site has a mixture of tourists and ‘locals’ with permanent caravans but the owners and locals made us feel very welcome.

Our children made the most of the facilities and activities, especially the sporting ones (hardly saw my 10 year old son!).

The nearby beach is quiet, clean and safe (life guard monitored) and the excellent on-site pool is well managed and supervised. During ‘siesta’ time the pool and beach are practically empty.

The site is well maintained and kept exceptionally clean and tidy. The toilet and shower, washing up and washing facilities cleaned regularly throughout the day. There is a reasonably priced on-site shop but we tended to use the local supermarket just 2 mins walk away.

There were lots of local things we could have done and places we could have visited but with the weather so fantastic (good job the site had lots of shade) we didn’t venture far from the beach/pool. We did manage to drag ourselves away one day to visit the fabulous city of Barcelona (30 mins by local train straight to heart of the city).

We felt safe and secure and had a great relaxing holiday. We will definitely visit again.

Ever wondered what battery chickens feel like? Go to Globo Rojo in August to find out. While I must stress that we were very lucky with our pitch (larger than average on a corner, 99% of all other tents, caravans and RV's were literally back to back. There wasn't even room to take any shortcuts through the site if you were so inclined. I saw several caravans that were unable to extend their average size awning due to the limitation of pitch size.

The noise at night was unbearable. I got about 3 hours sleep and my other half got about the same. The unruly kids seem to have turned feral. The campsite is surrounded by busy roads and a train line. If the road noise isn't loud enough you have the trains random horn to keep you occupied while you're counting the circles under your eyes.

However, I still gave it 2 stars. 1 for the staff and 1 for the food. We ate at the campsite restaurant and it was lovely. The price for a 3 course meal would have been hard to beat anywhere. It sort of made up for the extortionate fee they charge for a scrap of a pitch.
The facilities were always immaculately clean. The cleaner seemed to have been doing a permanent circuit during the day, always keeping on top of things.

Great campsite. I have been to over 30 campsites in Spain, France, Italy and the UK and this wins hands down.
-Clean toilets and showers that got cleaned what seemed to be about every 2 hours as every time I went into them they smelled and looked clean. They are also in very good condition like you would be proud to have in your house.
-The showers can be turned on so they stay on and the year a good pressure. None of this push a button every 5 seconds to keep the water going rubbish commonly found in other campsites.
-Very close to a great beach.
-Walking distance to a train into Barcelona.
-Has bakery for fresh bread each morning.
-Has bar/Cafe for great coffee.
-Has shop with prices about the same as supermarket with chilled wine by the bottle.
-Right next door to a supermarket.
-Very friendly staff
-The grounds are impeccable. Everything is so tidy that when I tried to find a rock to bang in the pegs of my tent I could not find one as the grounds were so shipshape and not a loose stone unturned literally.
-Has free wifi
