    They're not lying about being surrounded by oranges. Looks like a carpark in an orchard. If you do stop it will be interesting to see what you think.

    Just met some friends who tried to get on there. They reckon it's been over marketed and that, when they called, they were obviously squeezing extra vans in where they could. But that was last week; you know how volatile these sites are in Spain. Also, it seems generally busier here this year; we've never had to book on previous winter visits.

    Went to visit the Orange Grove in January and personally do not rate it. Miles from anywhere despite assurances that it was only a 10 min walk to the shops and restaurants - only if your name is Jack Flash. Swimming pool is much, much smaller than the picture depicts. Site at the time was completely full and one wonders if the toilet/facilities could cope.
    Benisol was also fully occupied as indeed the other campsites in the Benidorm area. I stayed at La Torretta for two months (handy for the shops and restaurants) with pitches being in great demand.

    I'm amazed how busy the area must be, we still in UK for a couple of reasons till end of march and we are at a site, unity holiday site in brean sands.
    Very empty, must be the weather?
    Will definitely be there or somewhere warmer next winter brrrrr.

    we managed to get the last pitch at benisol when we arrived but i think the changing weather may make people move further south at the moment it is geting colder but we are off tomorrow on the journey homeward so get here early if you want our pitch :Rofl1:

    We leave for Benidorm on 8th March, hopefully down there around the 12th. Am hoping some of the long stayers will be setting off home by then. Will do my best to get on La Torretta.

    You should'nt have any problems getting on La torretta in march, here on Raco there are several good pitches starting to become available as people start to head back to northern europe and lots seem to be talking about going home next weekend.

    The forecast still looks a bit iffy in Britain yet so I can't see us moving just yet
