“Perfect in so many ways”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2013

With summer to look forward to i have realised that in the search for the perfect holiday the decision is in many ways decided by the reviews people leave. I read reviews but never leave one and well Bai Blu deserves better.
We visited in late June early July 2011 for two weeks with our three boys 10,5 and 3. The weather was perfect. The camp site sits in pine trees a two minute walk from the beach. Its a beautiful site, really chilled out. Great wee park for the kids and the animation team worked tirelessy with my boys despite them being pretty much the only Brits. They put on a short show most nights and get the kids up to dance with an embaressed mum or dad. If its not your scene and it wasnt ours every night it finishes early and very little noise is heard from the Keycamp area.
Caravans were good and the Keycamp couple were excellent, even helped me fix the hire car i bumped. BBQ, decking, well spaced what more do you need ?
The site beach is coarse sand and you can have as much room on it as you want. It gets deep quite quick so if the kids were in so were we. The sea is crystal blue with a great big rock you can swim out to....and i did every morning before breakfast. There are so many beaches. San Terisa about half an hour away is stunning, the sand is much finer and the truly unbelievably turqoise sea is much shallower, you will rub shoulders with the locals its very popular. Paradiso bay has to be seen to be believed and the 10 minute walk in along the rocky coast is awesome. Not a bad wee waterpark nearby also.

So what are the negatives-
You need a hire car as the site is quite isolated and well there's just miles of coastline to explore.
Its expensive and we found eating out extortinate not that theres a huge choice within walking distance of the campsite. The campsite shop was ok for bits and bobs but you need a big supermarket, another reason for a hire car as its a good 10 minutes drive.

My wife and i would love to go back we feel we will struggle to find anything similar that has that mix of what we want and what the kids want. Unfortunately my oldest boy at 12 going on 16 would torment my younger two because theres not enough for him to do.
If you dont mind self catering most nights, you love the beach and loath the typical British tourist trail then its the perfect peacefull sun-kissed summer holiday.

We stayed at Baia Blu Tortuga for the first time in 2010 and had booked through Keycamp.ie. This year we booked on line with Baia Blu Holidays as Keycamp was not available. We had a mobile home in a good location (a little smaller than the one we'd had with Keycamp) but we'd air conditioning which made up for the smaller space.
The Campsite is very well run, all the facilities are kept very clean. We used the supermarket which is a little expensive but very convenient. We also ate in the Restaurant which was much better this time round. The Animatori Team were excellent and our two boys (5 and 9) had such a brilliant time partaking in archery and tennis in the mornings which were free and the 'baby dance' at night.
The beach couldn't be closer, the sea is so clean and great for snorkelling. Other sailing and water based activities are run at a charge which we availed of on our last visit and were very well run.
We holidayed in the middle of July and found the check-in and check-out very efficient and helpful. There is a bus from Alghero as others have mentioned but I would recommend hiring a car so that you can visit towns and beaches along this coast.
We'll be back. A special thanks to the Animatori Team especially to Christian, Marcello and Raphaelo.

Room Tip: Hire a car and perhaps do a shop in one of the bigger supermarkets for staple goods before arriving.

Not at all what we were expecting. A beautiful park and location let down by the standard of accommodation and the attitude of members of staff.

We thought we were booking a standard UK style static mobile home only to end up with "half a caravan." Upon complaining to members of staff we were told that it was what they call a "hotel room." It probably was but in a 1 or 2* hotel. To say it was a tight squeeze is an understatement, there was only the 2 of us but we struggled to squeeze between the double bed, table, chairs, fridge and tv. There was no kitchen so if self-catering is what you are looking for think again, there wasn't even a kettle! The bathroom was also small and the shower kept flooding. We had one set of towels each to last us 5 days, I'd definitely recommend taking your own.

The park itself was lovely, set in a beautiful location, however, there were times we felt like prisoners. I had to leave a 20 Euro deposit just to get my passport back. There were security guards everywhere and if you weren't wearing the mandatory blue wrist band then you could not get in.

The park leads to the beach and it is a short walk to the "square" where there are a couple of restaurants and nightly entertainment, which was a saving grace.

We booked via Expedia, maybe that was the problem.

Overall, very disappointing.

The beaches are lovely...... I liked the coarser sand right by the campsite which doesn't get everywhere.....take your snorkels to see the fish and other sea life! But there are lots of local beaches...each one a little different, and it is fun to explore!
There are some lovely local strolls from the campsite or a short drive away.
We hired a car which was useful to go a little further afield (but not too far!)
We did the day trip to Corsica..... it was very pretty but very expensive (187 euros for family of 5 as foot passengers!)..... and our 3 kids were bored...... definitely a trip for adults keen on shopping and eating in restaurants.
We went scuba diving from the campsite which was a great hit, and can really recommend Wolfgang and all his water activities which are competitively priced and well run.
The campsite is immaculately clean and we found the campsite staff and the Eurocamp reps to be very friendly and helpful.

We have just returned from 2 great weeks on this campsite. We booked it through Keycamp and the mobile home was spotlessly clean. It wasn't the biggest mobile home we have stayed in and I would have liked a choice of sizes but it was adequate for two adults and two teenagers. We liked having a deck to sit on. We hardly spent any time inside anyway. Some of the pitches on the site were quite small but we were really lucky and had a large plot. As other reviewers have said the beach by the campsite is small pebbles rather than sand. This has some advantages as the sand doesn't get everywhere and as we are past sandcastle stage it wasn't much of a problem. The water sports on the beach are good. We went on windsurfers, a sailing dinghy and the banana boat. Most of the instructors seemed to be german and most spoke some English. The prices for the watersports seemed reasonable compared to other places we have been. We used the shop on the campsite which had reasonable range but didn't eat at the restaurant. There was the usual play area plus table tennis tables. Bonus facilities were tennis couts and a gym plus a cash point. As others have said the check in at the campsite is ridiculously slow. I can't see why they need quite so much information when you have booked through a company like Keycamp that already has all the information. The staff at reception are not very friendly either. However the welcome from the Keycamp reps was much more friendly.

Whilst we did use the beach by the campsite we also visited several others. Our favourite was only five minutes drive from the campsite on the way towards Ste Teresa and was beautifully sandy and more gently shelving. Some of the beaches near Ste Teresa on Capo Testa were much busier but did have more facilities like giant inflatables in the water to play on.

We ate out in a range of places. The hotel next to the campsie did good pizzas. We also ate out in Ste Teresa and had some good seafood. It was also a nice place to wander round in the evening with craft stalls to look at and lots of good ice cream shops! The other places that were popular to eat in were the Agriturismo restaurants - basically restaurants on farms with set menus for around 30 euros. You got a huge amount of food and wine and water were included. The favourite main course was roast suckling pig which was delicious. The other place we ate out was up in the mountains at Tempio Pausana at a restaurant called Il Purgatorio. My daughter and I love seafood and decided to have Fritto Misto which is usually just a mix of fried seafood. This turned out to be twelve separate plates of delicious seafood and that was just our starter! We were so full.

In summary it was a beautifully kept site with good facilities both on site and nearby.

Baia Blu La Tortuga was one of the best holidays we have had. We stayed in a VIlla Classic, which was very clean and provided all the necessity's. it also had a sofa bed in the lounge and a gas barbecue, and all the caravans on site had atleast two bedrooms. There is evening entertainment which is great for the kids. Walking round the site we found that the sinks and toilets for the campers were extremely clean There was plenty to do, such as scuba diving, wind surfing and kite surfing, which are 50 euros each. The beach was made of tiny stones, but if you walk further to the left it turns into golden sands. the shop on the site was quite expensive, but there is an off-site discount store which is a lot cheaper. There is a tent full of board games, rackets and balls which you can use for free. We would definately recommend this holiday.

Value accommodation on such a beautiful island. Set in a lovely wooded area, clean and great facilities. It's about a 20 minute drive to some beautiful beaches such as Theresa gallura and a lovely town for some food.

Highly reccomended. We stayed with Canvas and the caravan more than sufficed :-)
