    Hi

    We have stayed at Kiko Park Olivia, (there are two Kiko's)

    Camping KIKO PARK en Playa de Oliva y en Villargordo del Cabriel

    We stayed there one night as a stopover on our journey south through Spain.

    We stayed in December 2008, although it was advertised as being by the sea (which it is) a huge embankment resembling a railway embankment separates the campsite and the beach.

    When you are on the campsite you can’t see the sea at all, there are no views only steep steps up the embankment. We used our ASCI card which reduced the prices from 25 Euros to 14.
    All the summer photos looked excellent. Even though it was winter it was still quite busy.

    It absolutely chucked it down with rain all evening and night, we left the next day.

    It's a nice site especially if you get a super pitch, they are on the right as you approach, nice bike ride into Oliva through the orange groves. Restaurants around the corner and beach bar on site.
    We stayed there for a week in early March two years ago, paid around £20 a night though.

    We have spent quite a bit of time at Kiko.We generally stay there on our way south about Oct/Nov time. You do need an ACSI card to get the price down to a reasonable level. Also a long Hook up lead (over 25m) is needed on some pitches. It is great for walking the dog on the beach and as mentioned previously there are some good local restaurants within easy walking distance at reasonable prices. The camp one is a bit expensive.

    It is an easy bicycle ride into Oliva on quiet roads and there is a good market on Fridays. There are 2 Mercadonas, Lidl and Consum in the town.

    We have found it the best site on this stretch of coast when compared to others such as Eurocamp which is a bit remote.

    The serviced pitches on the right hand side are bigger than on the left side buit they tend to be a lot more expensive.

    Its a very smart site. However, I have called in there on route to Souithern Spain and foujnd it to be full.You will need to book to secure a pitch. 15 euros a night with ACSI; otherwise very expensive.

    We stopped there for one night last year but found it very tight even with a panel van. I had to reverse into a very small pitch and anything bigger than a SWB would have found it impossible.You need an ACSI for the discounted rate but the beach is fab! Pitches were a bit too small and close unlike Roquetas de Mar where we stop for a month, for the discount and catch up with friends, which are double pitches and with 3 towns within easy walking/cycling dist. Bit further south but a good long stay site.:thumb:

    Hi geoff1947

    Was interested in your stay at roquetas de mar...... we have 35ft RV... do you think we'd be OK...often it's the height though that beats us because of the trees, we're 12ft 5 high.

    cheers

    alice

    p.s. there's a cracking site at Orgiva, if you like the mountains and the solitude. Open all year, and a bar across the road.

    Your find now that the pitch size in La Garrofa have got smaller and the bar has changed hands and prices have gone up a bit. And its time it had a make over.

    No problem The staff will remove any poles in your way. I've seen quite big RVs on site. Trees are quite high and lower branches were trimed last year Site access is OK and the site has one straight road with branches left and right and there is no problem with space.
    Cost this Feb - Mar for 32 days was 428 euro but the longer you stay the cheaper it gets.
