Site 76 - Camping Los Madriles

IMG 1220

We were looking forward to this site. We had heard good reports and it had not one but two open all year heated swimming pools, one indoor and one outdoor, that are emptied each night and refilled with fresh seawater.

The swimming pools are truly magnificent, beautifully warm and open from early morning till (in the winter) until 8.00pm.

The pitches are of a good size and all reasonably flat, as the site is terraced up a hill. This for some may be a problem as it is quite a stiff walk from the bar or shop to the upper reaches.

There is a well stocked shop on site that is open from 9.00 till 13.30 and then 16.30 till 18.30. The bar although looking good seemed closed most of the time although there was a dance one night we were there but we didn’t attend. There are also lots of activities organised during the week from line dancing to spanish lessons, from aquarobics to Petanque.

The facilities although kept clean do rather let the site down. There is no paper in the toilets and no soap or hand drying facilities and the showers in the main block that we used (the other smaller blocks may be different) was simply a small square room with two hooks and a tiny shelf for soap etc, nowhere to put you dear to keep it dry. The shower heads were around 3m from the floor and no matter how careful you were every thing ended up wet. My trick was to seal everything in plastic bags, but those shover heads are so high if the person next door has the water on full you get almost as much of their water as them.

There are shops, restaurants and bars a (longish) walk or cycle ride away. Our pitch had a good sea view which is a pleasant 1km stroll away.
