Camping Les Pins
Reviewed 21 August 2017 via mobile

Just returned from our holidays at Le Pins. We travelled down with Siesta. The Siesta reps Heather & Paul were always around should you need anything.

Really enjoyed everything about the site. Plenty of room around the pool. Very clean but found it very odd that you couldn't take drinks. A bottle of water with children would have been a great help and feel the site management should readdress this especially with the soaring temperatures we experienced.

We stayed in the Siesta 5 chalet which was perfect. Clean and in a great position. The food on the site was very reasonable but found the drinks very expensive.

10 min walk to lovey beach and also into the shopping area. Plenty of bakeries and food eateries. There was an Intermarche just outside the site which was reasonable. We had a BBQ most nights and sat out on our veranda.

Would definitely return here and loved every minute.

les pins is a small complex,small bar and fair sized pool, limited entertainment-staff were amazing and the accommodation clean.Argeles- beach was busy, windy with no shade, no small coves and no snorkelling but a busy classy harbour. The town was busy and somewhat cheesy-we liked Collioure a short boat trip away-medieval castle with a small fishing harbour and scenic village -take the land train to the mountain and grape vine plantations.

Just got back off of our holiday, we booked with Siesta Holidays who were superb, Heather and Paul the Siesta Reps are welcoming, flexible and very professional, the holiday homes are very clean and stand put from the rest of the site. This site needs a facelift, weeding and a bit of of TLC, the pool is far to small for the size of the camp, at times even finding a space for your towel it a challenge, the pool is clean but the lifeguards are more interested in their mobile phones, loud music and the young girls than what is going on in the pool, no chance of a swim without being hit in the head by a ball and the rule of men in tight swimming shorts is selective to if you are a lifeguards friend or not. The good things about this site is security, location to beach an Siesta but if you are looking for a pool holiday don't ho here.

We have just returned back from Les Pins after 2 weeks and found the holiday to be a great family break. The travelling on the coach is exactly as you would expect. Long, boring and tiring. We couldn't fault the hostess or the facilities on board.
The camp site is smashing. The Siesta pitches are about 5 mins in from the entrance and opposite the bar, the on site entertainment, the pool and laundry. The entertainment is mostly in French and loud but finishes at midnight. The bar is expensive and food is not great. There is a fast food take away at the entrance to the site which is much better.

The pool is great. I agree that you can't take inflatables into the pool or food, but you can certainly take drinks and balls. With the accommodation being outside the pool, it doesn't harm leaving your towels on your lounges and disappearing for lunch. The French don't tend to come to the pool until about 4ish so sunbeds and chairs are plenty full.

I would certainly recommend that you go out on the euro buses just outside the camp and visit the neighbouring towns. They are beautiful and the beaches are stunning. It's really easy to get around. We also went to Barcelona for the day. The tourist information will make the bookings for you. It's 3 hours to Barcelona, a tiring day but well worth it.

We have found that the cost of living has gone up in France. We have holidayed in France for the last 5 years and can certainly see the difference in food and drink costs. Be prepared for this.

The staff on sight where more than helpful and came every day to see people to see if everything was ok.

We would certainly go back. The holiday was great, very relaxing and enjoyable. Well worth taking the chance if you have never tried this type of holiday before.
