    :idea: The campsite now has free WiFi - although at the edges you will need a good N1 WiFi reciever - G and G+ just dont cut it more than 50 yds away from the reception base station
    :idea: This is one of the ONLY campsites that accept camping cheques / discount cards 365 days a year
    :!: If you are prepared to put your hand in your pocket (cash) and are booking for 3 months - they will do you a pitch for €300 Price (correct at time of publishing) per month (2 adults and including electricity) for July, August and September - cheaper than using camping cheques , and possibly the cheapest site in southern Spain / Portugal at that time of year

On arriving at La Sierrecilla we where mindful that we had read that the camp-site was brand new and a little barren...

It is …

But that is not really the point. - its brand new – the plant life needs to mature.
We also read that " the person who designed it had obviously never been camping "

… well on that we would beg to disagree – the plots are well drained and very very flat – putting the caravan on the plot was done in one swinging manoeuvre with the car – no messing about, no back and forward , no need for a motor-mover. Wide tramways between the pitches made it a doddle : Exactly what a caravanner wants.

16amp 'lekki as standard – YES! - (oh the woes of watching what you have on on a 6amp camp-site) – brand new Toilets, showers and amenities – "Real" toilet seats and soft loo paper ! Cloths washing machines at 2€ a load (half the cost of others we have seen elsewhere).

The pitches are gravel – but that is not a problem – wiggle your awning peg about a bit (to go through the gravel) before whacking it into the earth below - and bob is an uncle again !

True – there is no supermarket on site : but since we all got there somehow (Car & Caravan, Motorhome, Bicycle) : having a supermarket approx 1km away is not really a great burden, even hoofing it is possible.

We also read that "the restaurant was over priced and poor service" … again we beg to differ : with a "Menu de dias" [three full courses @ 9€] that the chef was prepared to do for us – before the restaurant had opened – heartily feeding two weary (530km that day – or 8 plus hours in our slow old rig) travellers with a smile and a warm welcome couldn't be a more opposite impression

With Brian in charge of Reception etc – consummately helpful, brilliant English : all that we had read appears to be a bit "grumpy and nit-picking".

Yes, its new, Yes it is a bit Barren, Yes there are places where improvement could happen.

But the point is these guys have only just got their feet under the table – best to let them settle in, and this will become a very good site.

No doubt there will be more added to this comment later (we have only been here one day after all)

But so far we are very pleased.
