Site 77 - Camping Los Escullos Cat. 1


We had read such good reports of this site that we were hoping it would perhaps be somewhere to spend Christmas.

We were sadly disappointed.

But why?

Difficult to quantify. The pitches were laid out with some running from front to back and some running from side to side. Although the pitches are of a good size the front to back ones were to short for us and the side to side ones were just not wide enough, although with a bit of help we managed to squeeze in across a side to side pitch.

All the pitches had close weave plastic sun shading over them essential in this area in summer I would imagine but in winter made the pitches feel dingy and slightly depressing. The only other twin axle van on site was in a pitch just long enough to get the van on and and wide enough for a full awning but it was so dark they used lights all day long.

The facilities were of a reasonable standard and kept clean with seats to the toilets, soap and hand dryers but on our second day there I tried to grab an evening shower but gave up when there appeared to be no hot water available

The shop accessed through the bar/restaurant had a good range of stock and was open when the bar was open. We had a meal in the bar that was acceptable but only just.

The swimming pool was closed for the winter but there are tennis courts etc available and a full programme of activities for the long stay campers to enjoy.

Although there are things to do and see in the area they are a bit limited.

There were a number of long term stay people on the site that return year after year. We will not be joining them again.
