W e have just returned form a 2 week stay in a Eurocamp mobile home. The site itself is very well managed and maintained.We had a 2 year old and 6 year old with us so the location was perfect as the beach is stunning. It's very close by and very safe for children.
The only negative was the lack of internet facilities. Having paid 15 euros for wifi it was irritating that the only place it worked was around the reception area and whilst we were there were many days when there was no internet service at all .Isla is well worth a visit. It can be reached across the bay at low tide or a 10 min journey in the car. There are lots of lovely places to eat here but I can also recommend the campsite's take away service for chicken and chips!

We stayed at this campsite for 8 days recently with our 12 year old daughter. We booked a mobile home directly with the campsite, which worked out very well. Since we were flying, we also rented sheets and towels, which were all freshly laundered. We also ordered a welcome pack because we were due to arrive on a Saturday evening and didn't know what might be open. This was waiting for us on our arrival.
The campsite has got excellent facilities: a good size swimming pool, and also a toddler's pool. The shop is small, but well stocked. In fact, we didn't need to go offsite for shopping at all. There is a take-away chicken (& chips) shop, for days when you don't want to cook. We were provided with a barbeque. The beach is directly accessible from the site, and it is big, beautiful and sandy. Absolutely gorgeous, and safe for swimmers of all ages. The little animal park onsite was a bonus. There are large playing areas for sports: soccer, basketball etc, and two play areas for younger children. This is one of the best campsites we've been to.

We have just spent two weeks at the campsite, wow it was beautiful, stunning location, beach amazing, very clean.
The campsite was excellent, alway clean and tidy the toilet block/showers were always kept clean by the friendly lady who seemed to always be there, the cleanist toilets I have ever come across.
The shop was well stocked with friendly and helpful staff, the swimming pool kept in good order and swimming hats are a must.
The reception staff were helpful.
The local karting was very good and professionally run.
The local Mexican in noja was very good,where we celebrated a birthday.
We would defiantly go back, we got the boat from Portsmouth to Bilbao in our campervan the journey was straight forward.

We have stated here four years in a row. We did two years with Keycamp (now part of euro camp) and two years with Venue. On all visits we could not fault our accommodation and the reps are always very accommodating and helpful. Colin who was the venue rep for both 2012/2013 was great.
We loved the picturesque totally unspoilt beaches at Noja and along the coast. It's a 40 min transfer from Santander airport, a tad longer if you fly to Bilbao, or alternatively take your car on the ferry.
We always travelled out for May half term the negatives at this time of year were the unpredictable weather......can be cooler than the uk and very wet as well meaning that the main attraction of the beach is then off the cards. We found alternative days out in both the cities were great and also up into the mountains. The site is very quiet at this time of the season and the only pool area on the park does not have supervision from staff or a lifeguard so faults need to ensure they are aware of this and supervise fully. The beach is also not manned by lifeguards at this time.
We loved the site for its peacefulness, however this changes at weekends when the Spanish arrive for the weekends. They love coming in large parties and congregating at one van to cook paella and drink into the early hours. The children play on the site roads and the fields until a similar time so if you like to sleep before 1 or two am then take ear plugs. Some are really friendly and encourage you to join in but every year there is a tale or two from other holiday makers who have had difficulties. It's not a big issue as this is the way they love to holiday but if you are prepared it makes it easy to deal with.
Noja itself again at this time of year is only really open at weekends when there are more holidays makers around. The local ice cream shop Regma have to be visited!!
The wildlife park is interesting but low season it varies as to when it opens so check with reception. It's a beautiful place to stay and not really to be missed!

Dear family,

Thank you for your opinion on Camping Playa Joyel, Noja and our beach.

All your opinions are much appreciated. I have noticed that you were here in July, and in that period lifeguards on all Noja beaches are always on duty (from 11:30 a.m. until 7.30 p.m., daily from 20/06 to 15/09) and on weekends during the first 3 weeks of June. Our lifeguard is all summer on duty as well, but we have a second person who is lifeguard as well, and is a Reception´s staff. Of course, we remind all families that children must be at all times (campsite+beach+pools) supervised by adults.
Just let you now that Colin (Venue Holidays) has promised to come in 2015 back again to Camping Playa Joyel !!

Thank you again! And hope to see in Noja and Camping Playa Joyel in your next visit to Cantabria!!
