    Well we got there but didn't get in,they were full to the extent that vans were pitched in the carpark waiting for a pitch.Ended up in Armanello.

    I have walked past the Armanello site several times. It looks clean and tidy from the outside, have never had a look around the site though. I would welcome your opinions.

    No complaints really,wifi ok and good toilets with powerful showers. Bar and resto,we were recommended the overspill area which is an enclosed area outside the site,plenty room in there.

    Good point Bill, the lane is unlit and would be a major concern to us.

    Lane? It's on the main road... other sites further out.

    Personally don't like BIG sites:)

    You come ask them to relocate the 'Tropical' Brian, sure they would oblige,:) maybe they could move it to Villasol, they need a decent bar, hard to believe but the service this year is even worse than last year :Eeek:
    Cheers

    I didn't think the service could get any worse Ed.
    I will just have to spend more time in the Tropical.
    See you soon.

    We have stayed in apartments in Benidorm a few times in the past but have only stopped on one site, Armanello, for 2 nights and that was enough. Know what sardines feel like now, don't think another visit is on the cards to the site or Benidorm.

    As I said the overspill area has large pitches and I have no worries about dark lanes,been to plenty campsites with walks like that and never had a problem.Carry a torch.
