    Cycled past this today but didn't stop. Checked out their website and they offer 55% discount for stays of 1 month or more which makes it a good price. Haven't heard of Funsters staying there so thought there may be a good reason? Anyone tried it?

    Hi Coolbeanz

    Not been to camping Benidorm but spent 10 days at camping Cap Blanche Albir and enjoyed it, (about 4 miles from you at Alfas) having the beach close was a nice change.

    Enjoy Totana the cycling is good, can be challenging but good and @jumar will help you with some good routes and local knowledge.

    Are you on road or mountain bikes.

    This site looks quite a distance from the town and the sea front. The others are walking distance.

    Normally have our road and mountain bikes with us but this trip we've left the road bikes at home as its difficult to sightsee when using SPD's.

    We don't mind the distance as we cycle everywhere. We are on a lovely Aire at Alfaz del Pi which is 2 kms to the beach. Gorgeous surroundings and nice and peaceful.

    Pitch 52 below first shower block, kettle will be on...... Keen cyclists as well, especially my wife who's in training for london to Brighton:)

    Just worked out price its £9.19 per night over a month inc tax at current rate, I had nealy 1.40 exchange rate before we came out. Plus elec on top.

    You need to have a wander around them all to be honest, all nearbye, some have better internet but you pay for it. But most are real big sites and we prefer small....

    Adios amigo Eddie

    Our stay at Villasol worked out at €14.60 per night, including 2kw of electricity per day.

    not see it.

    It's not in the actual village but is near the tram station in the orange groves.

    Hi Eddie, we left Benidorm on Monday morning. We are now at Aranjuez near Madrid, will be here until next Monday when we head off to Bilbao and the ferry home.

    You must be close to Almafra then, will have to have a look around there when we next return.

    It's not in Almafra. Look at the map and we are the blue dot. There is also another Aire called the Orange Grove 300 mtrs past this one which is the Costablanca. image.jpg
