We had a great hoiday. The site is great and it is the third time that we have been to this site. It is a busy site with loads to do and the beach and pool are amazing! As you can also walk to the beach you do not need to drive, which is a real bonus.

It's a big parc, but as long as you're in zone 1 you don't notice. Beach is Lovely, pool is great. Restaurant/bar/theatre area run down and scruffy looking, we didn't use these facilities so can't comment on the quality.

The parc was too big for me by far - somehow I missed that there were nearly 1600 pitches! That said, it was spotlessly kept, beautiful pool complex, and lots of facilities. The walk to the beach was about 20 minutes - a bit further than we had expected. We hired bikes from the site, but were disappointed that they don't hire out children's cycle helmets, which was a worry. We enjoyed our week, but wouldn't rush back to the area.

Awesome beaches and waves, great access. Good facilities. Bit of no large site! Take bikes.

We stayed in a tent with two children 7 and 4. We had a very mixed holiday, it started well, we had a pitch close to the beach (at extra cost) which unfortunately was opposite a park for the kids and could be noisy at 8am. We could live with this but on our 3rd day two new families arrived either side of us, they were holidaying together and both had babies and toddlers. To start with they constantly walked through our pitch to get to each other and their kids kept going in our tent, again we could put up with this but unfortunately the babies cried all night keeping us all awake and they were extremely noisy from 6.30am! We spoke to our couriers who were very helpful and said if we wanted we could move tents in 3 days which we did. Unfortunately it meant we had 3 days of very little sleep, the kids were extremely irritable and tired and then we lost over half a day moving tents. Whilst the couriers were extremely understanding and helpful, we were upset that 4 days of our holiday had been so spoilt. On our second week my daughters bike was stolen, we reported this to both reception and the eurocamp couriers, neither were interested or surprised and we were simply told 'it happens all the time and it may turn up'! Why on earth aren't people advised that this happens regularly? The following day another family had their bikes taken so it clearly is a common occurrence. We did find her bike but not until we'd spent four hours looking, another day wasted! All in all I wouldn't want to go back to this parc, it's a good location but we had too many bad experiences and felt we lost a number of days. It is expensive to stay in a eurocamp tent, the uk equivalent is a fraction of the price, what you pay for is the nice weather and unfortunately our second week the weather was pretty rubbish too.
