Did not feel pool was safe as children and adults coming down slides on top of others. One lifeguard insufficient as could not see the whole pool

This campsite lived up to our expectations. Animation programme was excellent. Upkeep of campsite was very good always very clean. Even though we booked with Al Fresco, our reps. were Eurocamp....but indeed very good. Al Fresco need to advise on advertising this campsite on website and brochure that all their accommodation is located across the road from the main area where clubhouse and pool are located.

The campsite was good but very dated and the pool floor needs upgrading, paint was chippig of the kids pool as you walked in it. Pool beds were all tied together by a wire which was lethal for children, every day young children fell over this wire and hurt their feet.

Excellent Park, night time entertainment not as good as larger parks but still decent, very good Park for Children.
Overall a very good well run Park. Proximity to Biarritz is a real bonus as it is a great town to visit with excellent beaches and restaurants. San Sebastián is well worth a day trip, about 45 mins drive, excellent sea front and Tappas Bars.
