A well presented on the camping site, the reality is quite another thing ...
Terrain Camping unsuitable lovers Tents: no greenery, the canvases are parked on narrow surfaces clay (just room for the tent and that's all). Those who are camping in height and therefore, to be away from health, will have the joy of using toilet construction. You will understand, the site is prepared while high on a rock with ledges that serve as a campsite.
Location of camp: 300m from the beach (not 100) with between it and the site a national and a railroad; the camping is at the entrance of Calella approximately 800 m from downtown (not 200m) downtown is nice and very festive.
Parking not really defined: it starts where there is space, because in general it is the neighbor who has taken your place because his neighbor had taken his place because he could not not keep his (you follow me) makes it the bazaar! The campground does not have required number of places near your bungalow and controls nothing. You will surely find the place at the top camp in a vacant lot, inadequate parking and not practical (except for 4x4, it climbs and it is broken). Warning, if you bike, you will pay 5 € a day, even if you do not have a location and you are forced to move the motorcycle several times during the stay, because they constrain (this was our case). Our first mission was to try to find a place that does not exist but which, of course, is charged!
Atmosphere / animation: Given that the population is mainly composed of teenagers atmosphere is guaranteed, with the booms private, organized by the German camps ... If you find the rest, go your way, otherwise go to the fasting's, the puff! Some activities, outside the camp, are free as bike and kayak.
Pool: No interest, except to illustrate the brochure and the camp site and can be for young children. A basin of water 30cm for small children and another pool of about 1.60 m without slide and diving board without. Swimming pool where you feel very quickly to close because of its small size. In short, anyway, we are here to go to sea
Housing: Renting a bungalow 4 places with sea views overlooking the sea, not bad, even if two thirds are towers. The bungalow is not for 4 adults but a couple with 2 children and children not too great, in fact, room for children consists of bunk beds, it is microscopic and worthy of a closet (in Speaking of wardrobe, they still managed to put one in it! But do not think you can unpack your suitcase), it is important not to be claustrophobic (this should be about 2m x 1.5m). Bathroom, not really clean, with mold in the shower tray. One thing also that he must take care that there is no inventory entry, and now we have almost got to the end of our stay. On a chair that, supposedly, we damaged (although it was already before our arrival). The campsite at the current state of output, falsely accused us, and strangely the person who has verified that controlled these chairs (and very quickly the rest of the bungalow). I guess it is not the first to be scammed with this famous chair ... Many difficulties in recovering the deposit! Be careful!
In conclusion, a value close to zero, with a mentality of "you paid so you install you test and you shut up because you're wrong." Camping too expensive for the services provided, the customer must be able to meet a minimum real go if he wants a good holiday. It is unfortunate but true, I recommend this site to find better, it is not difficult, I am convinced.

Camping No Really

Review of Guiguili from Bretagne / France, August 2010

Travel date: August 2010

Camping built on a rock, very very steep, it is still climbing up and it becomes very tiring. It is 100m from the beach as advertised on their website, last 100m as the crow flies maybe, but there are easily 10-15 minutes walk from the campsite to the beach, and more so because it goes back really. It is not 200m from the town center either, but rather 1km. The sea view is not worth the price it is charged 10 € per day to our bungalow, and frankly it is a pity because the view is the beach front hotels, and the voice of railway between the 2 nothing extra really.
The pool is really small, like the rest of the site in fact, sites are really stuck to each other without separation, and the bungalows are practically glued (50cm between two bungalows, just enough to open a window). We really appreciate the convenient because it really feels to be piled one upon the other.
We had a bungalow four seats, but we must understand two adults (couple) and two children because it is a bedroom with a double bed and one room with two bunk beds. This room is really very small there is the seat of a person standing beside the bed. We are therefore obliged to go one by one. The bungalow is really too small for four adults.
When we arrived, the unit was not really clean (dust, mold in the bottom of the shower, a trace of moisture in our room, colonies of ants in cupboards in one bedroom), TV not working not, and lawn chairs on the terrace was cracked. This does not really bothered us, since we have almost no use of lawn chairs, we pulled the chairs inside to save space. Except that the inventory of exit, the guy immediately started looking for a break in the sun, as if he knew there was a broken chair. After finding this chair broke (finally cracked) he made a quick little tour of the bungalow, but very quickly. He has not even checked the washer, or appliances. It is not even in the small back room. We could pick up the mattress or break the bunk bed as it is obviously not made for adults, but no, he did not even checked it. All this seemed a little fishy, and is certain to have seen the broken chair in the very first day we had the feeling of having been scammed, although not huge (10 € chair), but enervating. As before the bill this week was not expensive enough. We wanted to complain to the campsite, which we flatly send roses, and we never ask to return to his campsite. I just hallucinated, these people do not really have anything to make customers once they have cashed the check to arrive.
There was no parking near our bungalow, a car parking space is at the top of the other side of camping in a field on a steep slope is not at all practical.
In addition to the car we had motorcycles, for which we had to pay 5 € per day per bike, without being given any room for parking. Unable to park bikes in the field next to the car, because it is much too steep. It took one manages to find places ourselves. They were parked in a certain way or they are embarrassed holidaymakers, so we had to move several times in short, this site is not at all suitable for motorcyclists.
The camp's population up 75% of teenagers in German or Dutchman camps, I will let you draw conclusions about the noise and atmosphere ...
Only positive point: free activities are proposed on the beach: 1 hour free bike and kayak ½ hour free. The rest is paid.
I therefore recommend this site to anyone, much less to bikers, and as I was asked the manager, the next time I would go elsewhere.

1 weeks Capming El-Far never again

Review of loveisgone from Hesse / Germany, September 2007
Language of the review:
Review is based on the year: 2006

We were a week in the annex "Camping El Far" ... Under no circumstances would I recommend this ...
Starting from the reception, begrü't will be very schnipisch asks you for a doctor after the bungalow number asked if there were any complaints. Then there is only right.
There is a restaurant, a mini market and a pool there. The restaurant has been tested udn it is flawed! Even the Grillgut on the grid is, looks very unappetizing, and it smells so so that is a really bad! Restaurant and mini market sidn both very expensive!
The pools can also be desired. The couches are disgusting, flying romp on the couch, it is already a nuisance, not very eholsam! Moreover, everything from very unkempt. As in a flophouse.
The bungalows with sea views are really not bad, but the 4-5 bed bungalows are clearly too small and too tight. Everything wobbles, in part, the organization already broken or it's missing something. Valuables there, I would in any case, since the doors and windows even from a layman within a few seconds can easily be opened, so prefer a safe to rent!
There were so many ants in the bungalows, it not only to have dinner apart, but also to clothing, everything. So there were very often even ants streets. What you could even ignore some point, since it is quite normal in southern countries.
Cooking should be in no case with water and drink anyway! It is with chlorine, to always equal NEN jerrican water buy!
With fair Zierhaltung the owners have made it anyway. There is a Schäferhung that really zusammengesclagen and collar with sting out is un hergworfen. And what do you say, one is threatened by the owners! So beware!
Overall, a plant which is nothing for families, in my opinion. Dear in a decent hotel with meals go, towel change (there was not even within a week !!!)!
