The location of the parc was great, the children and adults enjoyed the fabulous pools and there are lots of other play areas on site too. The weather was wonderful the first week. Second week we had rain and cool conditions and then we found out if you don't have a car there is really nothing to do when it rains in September in Argeles Sur Mer. The accomodation was clean and outside space was great we appreciated the deck and we backed on to a vineyard and had a lovely view of the mountains. However, we were a bit disappointed with the space inside the Avant, the master bedroom was tiny and we could not walk around the bed easily, but had to do a sideways shuffle to get in and out ( we are just normal average size people) and as I sat on the bed to get in it almost collapsed, it turned out there were broken slats from the last occupants that needed replacing, so called the staff and they came and replaced them within an hour.

The staff were young and energetic and helpful and they needed to be because we had more problems the second day with a blocked kitchen sink, that caused a minor flood that came up under the floor, they came very quickly and did what they could, unfortunately it all got worse and their attempts to remove the blockage caused even more water to flood right into our bedroom, so they brought some towels for the floor and called the plumber and although we had to wait until the next day he did come and it was all fixed. Then the same day, in the middle of cooking a chicken our gas ran out and so they came again within an hour and brought a new gas bottles but unfortunately he could not get it going and finally after two attempts and two changes of bottles it was fixed, however, by this time four hours had elapsed and so we had to abandon our partially cooked chicken dinner and just ate salad, no offer to compensate was made so we let it go, we were in holiday mode so didn't want to stress or fuss about anything. However, we could not use the kitchen sink, dishwasher or the cooker until the next day so a bit inconvenient to say the least.

I would recommend the campsite but you might want to hire a car for convenience. Local supermarkets in town were good, Lidil was cheaper but located over a mile away so not so useful for us. There is a bakery and snack shack on site which was great, the on site bar was very convenient and had activities every night and was a social gathering place where you could take the kids and the prices of drinks were very reasonable. all the staff were pleasant, friendly and welcoming. We only went to the actual beach once, it's not sandy but rather like kitty litter so no sand castles for our toddlers and as the sea was very rough for several days it wasn't suitable for our family but was great for sunbathing and older children. The promenade is lovely and you can walk, run or bike to the port and take in the spectacular mountain scenery and there are lots of nice restaurants, cafes and ice cream shops all the way so we really enjoyed stopping off for lunch or dinner it's bustling at nighttime and has a great vibe.

The site was fine but in the van we were in there were 4 other vans in close proximity and one in particular was very noisy with very badly behaved children. My wife suffered heat stroke in the middle of our holiday and we asked if we could transfer to a site further North. This was duly organised and we transferred to Berney Riviera for our last few days. We were shown to our van and at first sight this appeared alright. As I had driven from Argeles I had a takeaway meal and then retired to bed. Next day we realised that all was not as well with the van. The shower was unusable. The shower head was rusted and most of the holes were blocked. When I tried to use it the water was coming out of 4 holes! After a while I gave up and got out of the shower and found water coming out from under the shower base and there was a strong smell of drains. We had a good look round the van and found the following. Only 1 lounger, no curtain on the kitchen window, the curtain in one of the smaller bedrooms was torn and inoperable, the heater in the bathroom was rusty and dirty. It rained heavily one day and the gutters appeared to be blocked and all the water was running off the gutter at the back of the van and flooded the ground around the back of the van. The rooms were all damp and my watch, which lay on the bedside table each night, was damp to the point of the strap rotting. The inside of the bedroom window was soaked with the condensation. All this was reported to the staff on 4 occasions and a new shower head was fitted. Unfortunately this worked too well and even more water was flowing under the shower tray and into the bathroom. The tray had signs of cracking and there had been an attempt to paint a new skin in the tray but this had not worked. On the day we left I called at the office and told about 6/7 reps about the problems and they claimed that no-one had made any complaints about the van before. I found this very hard to believe. I am very disappointed with this episode.

Excellent location,easy access on foot to the beach and town.
The wifi was not up to scratch,however,as our pitch was on the furthest side of the campsite.
Also there was a huge difference in pitches offering the same accommodation. If we had been given one of the smaller,darker pitches,with older mobiles,our overall opinion would be quite different.
