campsite code: CV011

Campsite Summary

Campsite Description

Playa Joyel is a first-class campsite, enjoying spectacular views of the Cantabrian Mountains and direct access to a superb beach of wide golden sand - children will love fishing and snorkelling in the huge rock pools that are exposed at low tide. Pitches vary in size, are defined by hedges and trees, and most have shade. Customers select their own pitch on arrival, on a first-come first-served basis, so those with large outfits should aim to arrive early, if possible. The facilities on site are excellent, with modern well maintained sanitation, a super bar, well stocked supermarket and a popular restaurant. In high season there is also a take-away and on site hairdressers/beauty salon. Teenagers will love the underground disco which operates every night in July and August, while the site’s animal park is sure to be a hit with younger children with its deer, pygmy goats and ostriches! There is also a new indoor play area for children. A lovely coastal walk from the beach is ideal for exploring and experiencing some fabulous views. Special rates are offered to guests at the nearby 18-hole golf course and a trip to Santander, the region’s capital, is a great day out.

Helen Scott, Playa Joyel, Noja, Spain

Our recent holiday sufficient

The campsite has very good facilities (great shops (one for groceries and newspapers and another selling camping equipment if you've forgotten anything) knowledgeable if slightly unfriendly reception staff and clean bathrooms and toliets. When we had our holiday, the other campers were mainly Spanish, with a few English, French, Dutch and Germans-most people were friendly and respectful of others' space and privacy. However, this is a lively site and the Spanish habits of doing everything a bit later than is usual in England (eating, going to bed)meant that on occasion, there was some noise late at night. The pitches are quite large, but as most campers are families with either large tents or caravans, it can seem quite cramped. So, if you are looking for space, and peace and quiet, this is not the campsite for you. The reception staff will let you choose an alternative pitch if you don't like the one you are allocated on arrival-this didn't help us much though as the site was almost full when we were holiday in early August. The on-site restaurant was quite over-priced for the quality of food on offer so if you like eating out, there are better value places in the town or further afield. We would recommend hiring a fridge on site-the freezer for putting ice packs in was very inefficient (ie the blocks were not frozen after 24 hours in the freezer)and our blocks were stolen on one occasion.On a more positive note-the beach nearby is excellent and when the sea is calm, offers great swimming. Other good beaches nearby are to found at Laredo. Bilbao and Santander are very interesting places for a day out, if you like museums, shopping or just people watching. We enoyed the maritime museum in Santander (and just wandering around the city) and the Guggenheim in Bilbao is a must for art-lovers.

Bailey Family,

This campsite is unusual in that on arrival you were given a map and asked to go and choose your own pitch. It also has UK type 'three' pin electical connection. The facilities were incredible, aways clean and there were plenty of them. The restaruant was Uninspiring, over priced and had a poor selection. However the shop on site was well stocked, we never used any other supermarket, just the butchers, fish mongers and bakers in Noja
