Website ready for 2014

These last weeks we have been busy preparing the new design for our web site. Finally it is ready and you can view and use it in
The new design tries to be usable from mobile phones in that when viewed in a small screen it then disminishes the number of columns and enlarges the character size. The number of pages has also been reduced drastically, so you don't have to wait so much between loading pages. We have tested in an iPhone with the latest Safari and Chrome browsers. It should work also from other phones. (Please tell us if you have problems from your phone...)

New in 2014: providing bed clothes and towels in the bungalows and apartments

As standard equipment in the bungalows and apartments, in 2014 we will be providing bed clothes and towels. Replacement of all this will be done approximately every 7 days. This is a basic service that will ease the stay of the guests.

Goodbye bungalows 5 persons

We have had 8 bungalows for 5 persons, model Gitotel Club, during the last 12 years. These last years they needed more and more reparations and inside the colors, materials were beginning to look outdated. So this winter we are going to replace them for 8 bungalows 5 persons Plus, the same model as the other ones that we already have. The area, distribution of the bungalows is going to be changed also, to be an extension of the Sector C. More about that in the next days.

Changing colors in the playground

Finally, we can change the black nets by beige nets. The process has begun, there are 3 workers involved and in 3-4 days they should have finished.

Prices for 2014 already available

Prices for the next 2014 season are already available in our web site, more specifically as PDF here. There are some changes in the bungalows/apartments that will be explained in the next posts.
As for the camping plots we distinguish now adults and children. In most camping places children are aged from 3 to 12. Surprisingly here it will be from 3 to 16 years old. The cause of this extension from 12 to 16 is just to adapt better to the tourist tax. As you know, following orders from the inept political dictatorship in Catalonia, we have now to apply a tourist tax of 0,5 € for the persons > 16 years old, for a maximum of 7 days. Distinguishing in this way between adults and children makes it easier to apply this tax, because only adults will pay it.

Changes for 2014 in apartments upstairs

Apartments upstairs are going to be changed following the same criteria as downstairs, explained in the last post. Air conditioning (warm-cold), new furniture, new colors inside, removing the wall from the bedroom, and a wider door to the terrace. Plus, the separator between terraces will be much bigger and nicer, in a similar way to the apartments downstairs, so the terraces are going to have more privacy.
Bed measurents and detailed measurements may change, but this is the idea. About the price, instead of increasing it we are going to REDUCE it, as a promotion for 2014, and it will be the same price as the bungalows for 2 persons.
Reservations are already available in the reception and also on-line.

Changes for 2014 in apartments downstairs

Apartments are going to be redecorated for the 2014 season, with BIG changes. First, air conditioning (warm - cold) will be installed in all the apartments. Second a more modern look with colors - furniture will be arranged.
Here is how apartments downstairs are planned, after a lot of changes because of the comments of some of you. We will keep the capacity of 4/6 persons, with the sofa bed. All the apartments on the ground will be transformed to have this capacity, even the bigger ones that were 7-8 persons. There will be a possible trick to accommodate a 7th person: an additional (exceptional) folding bed that can be put at the end of the main bed. A small exception, one of the apartments will be adapted for wheelchair users.
Bed measurements may change, but we will try to make beds longer and possibly wider. For example, the main bed will surely be of 160 cm width. The sofa bed could be also 2 m long, and in the children's room the beds will have another distribution. In the bathroom we will put white tiles. A big change, in the main bedroom we will remove the wall that separated from the living room, in order to give more space and open it. The apartment's main door will be much bigger, something like 1,5 cm wide, similar to the bungalows, in order to have more light and also open all the space inside.
Reservations for 2014 are already available from the reception, by email or directly from the on-line reservation system.

The new brochure for 2014 is ready and we are going to distribute it in a few months, we still have some few boxes with the old one ;-) Anyway it is already in our web here.
The new brochure focuses on the beaches, removes the detailed info about bungalows and adds new photos about services and playgrounds.

Miss Mini Camping 2013

Tonight there has been the Miss Mini Caming event, in the terrace of the Internet Cafe. A big applause for all the participants and the animation team.

Wednesday, 17 July 2013

Apartments finished by now

The front of the apartments is, since some weeks, completely finished. By now. We are planning more changes during this next winter, mostly in the decoration inside. All these changes will be explained at the end of the summer, once the campsite is again closed.

Friday, 5 July 2013

New 4 bungalows are the best

The 4 new bungalows for 5 Persons Plus are finished, the green area in front of them is the most spacious among all bungalows. By now they have been numbered as 21, 22, 23 and 24 in the Sector C.

Monday, 1 July 2013

New playground already usable

The new children's playground area is already being used. Some details are still missing and we will be completing it in the next months. It is intended for children from 6 years old and the design makes it very safe while requiring a good deal of effort and enthusiasm to cross some paths.

Saturday, 29 June 2013

Details in the multisports court

The multisports court is now completely finished with the addition of a sign with the prohibited actions, and an indication that balls can be borrowed from the reception, at no cost (in case you don't bring your own). A very important point, the court will be free to use. By now we don't make reservation lists since it is easier if you can go and inmediately play. If later in the high season there are conflicts we will have to rethink it, but it will be nicer if we can keep it without any list.
There are also lights for the night (if the guards don't automatically turn them on just ask them please), so you can play until 23:00, afterwards it is prohibited because the camping has to be more and more free of noises.

Friday, 21 June 2013

Never ending playground

The street between the river and the new playground is being finished, after a lot of changes and addition of various electrical and water lines. Hopefully now it is definitive and if so we will open the area in several days.

Wednesday, 19 June 2013

New playground getting ready

Parts of the new playground area are almost ready. We plan to open it in about one week.

Monday, 17 June 2013

Ping pong tables area is ready to use

These last days, after putting more benches and the garbage bins, the ping pong area is ready to use, and this weekend there were already quite a few people testing it. The area is prepared with lights, so it is possible to play until 23:00 in the night.

Sunday, 16 June 2013

More and more plants

Near the new bungalows 21, 22, 23 and 24, gardeners are finishing the area, and builders put some lamps. Next weekend these bungalows are going to start being occupied and they will surely be among the preferred ones.

Garbage bins near the multisport court

Near the multisport court Vadim is putting 2 new garbage bins of the same model than the ones near the supermarket. The area here still needs some small details, but children can already use it very well.

Thursday, 6 June 2013

Good progress with wrong color

Basic build up of the nets is going to finish in about one week. Afterwards there will be a lot of points to finish: garden, replacing of broken nets, lights, benches, garbage bins... If all goes well it will probably be ready for the children at about 20th June.

Monday, 3 June 2013

Continuying with wrong nets

So, the bigger portion is progressing, despite some rain and false colors. Here a builder is shaping a small mountain that will give more character to the area. You can already see the rather unnatural-looking black nets.

Friday, 31 May 2013

Small portion mostly finished

The building up of that small portion is now finished, a lot of details need to be addressed but the critical part is done. As you can see here the nets are in the right color.

Thursday, 30 May 2013

Black disaster

The builders of the new playground have now discovered that the nets have arrived in black color, when we all wanted white. So, they are going to have to mount them first in black and in some months they will have to replace all the nets in the right color... It will be no small task because as you will see there will be a lot of nets.

Monday, 27 May 2013

Now comes the laundry

A new, big ironing machine is arriving. This last months we have modified a little bit more upstairs from the Amberes building, so we have more space for our internal laundry. This new machine goes now to the new space. Still to be decided, but for 2014 we would like, in the bungalows and apartments, to provide always the bed clothes and towels.

Saturday, 25 May 2013

And material arriving

New material is arriving for the new playground, basically wood poles. Some drainage work is already done, much more still to do.

Thursday, 23 May 2013

Progress in that small portion

We have had some rain, the work progresses slower but it still continues. In two days the basic build up of that small portion of the playground will be finished.

Tuesday, 21 May 2013

Building a small portion of the game

There is a small portion that the builders are right now already mounting. This portion is rather independent of the rest and the material already arrived.

Sunday, 19 May 2013

New signs inside the supermarket, changes coming

This summer we are trying to sell more prepared meals in the supermarket, and thus we have added new big signs to publizice that food.
Since last summer we have changed the name in the entrance of that building, from 'Supermarket' to 'Commercial Center', and while the supermarket area is remaining, the objective goes more and more towards the bread and prepared meals section.

Friday, 17 May 2013

Water draining in the new playground area

Now the builders are beginning to prepare the terrain in order to drain the water from the rain, so it goes to the river nearby. Because the area is rather big this work will take a lot of time.

Wednesday, 15 May 2013

Progress in playground installation

Installation of the playground is progressing well but it is a slow and long process, at least 20 more days until the basic build up is finished, and afterwards there will be some other aspects to finish. We expect the playground to be usable in about one month, so by the middle of June, always if the weather permits that continuous progress.

Saturday, 11 May 2013

Plants for the new playground area

The new playground area is needing a lot of plants and the gardeners are busy preparing the terrain and putting them. We are going to need about one month still until the area will be ready for the clients.

Wednesday, 8 May 2013

The beginning of the build up

Finally after months waiting, the building up of the games in the playground area has begun. Let's hope there is no raining... and then it should be finished in about one month.

Tuesday, 7 May 2013

More progress in the ping pong area

JuanMa is preparing the ground around the ping pong tables to put some grass. Meanwhile, people can already play ping pong in the 4 tables.

Thursday, 2 May 2013

Planting bushes near the multisport court

The gardeners are now planting a line of bushes near the multisport court. In the next days the surroundings of that area will receive some more plants in order to make it greener.
Behind the gardeners you can already see some children playing in the new court.

Tuesday, 30 April 2013

Progress in the area of ping pong tables

After some rainy days, the builders are again at the ping tables area, now just starting the entrance ways. Between entrance ways there will be some plants. It should be finished in about 10 days.

Friday, 26 April 2013

Playground area almost ready to put the games

After some dry weeks, work in the playground area is again progressing. Here Jesus is shaping a little dune. In the next days we are going to put the concrete basis for the new games.

Wednesday, 24 April 2013

Progress in the multisport court

The multisport court is progressing well, fences and goals are already mounted. The builders are now filling the holes. This next weekend it will already be open to play, although from time to time we are going to close it in order to finish details. It should be finished in two weeks.

Monday, 22 April 2013

Modifying behind the Amberes building

Behind the old Amberes building there were 8 sinks for washing clothes, these have to dissappear, because that space will now be occupied by parkings lots for the bungalows. Here in the above photo the sinks have already been removed and the painter will hide any traces of them.

Thursday, 18 April 2013

Protection nets for the football

A builder is preparing the net that is going to protect the vehicles's parking from the balls in the new football area. The area below is still far from ready.

Tuesday, 16 April 2013

Ping pong table ahead of time

The two new ping pong tables have already arrived. Although the area is far from finished, JuanMa is already mounting one of them, just to see how it looks.

Sunday, 14 April 2013

Front of apartments again progressing

Well, after a lot of weeks without progress because it was too wet, the area in front of the apartments is again getting ready. Here the gardeners in action, preparing the terrain to put grass and plants. As a detail, the wooden dividing walls between apartment's terraces are finished.

Wednesday, 10 April 2013

Welcome new football / basketball field

The new activities that are going to replace the minigolf are: 4 ping pong tables and a football / basketball field.
During these last years we had 2 ping pong tables below the old swimming pool. The place was rather terrible because the ceiling was low and also because there were some camping plots just in front of it that were disturbed by the noise. Now we move these tables to the new location and add two more.
We have been having a green football field outside the campsite, quite big, but the inconvenience is that the door to that place needs to be open, and this poses security issues, because easily non-clients could enter the campsite without control. The football field also was sometimes 'occupied' by cows that escaped from nearby fields and that made the area dirty, even breaking the nets of the football goals. The new football area will add basketball facilities and will be totally inside the campsite.
In the next weeks we are going to report about the progress that is been made. We hope to have it ready in about one month.

Monday, 8 April 2013

Goodbye minigolf

As you may have been suspecting these last months, the minigolf is going to dissappear in this 2013 season. We are going to replace it by some other activity that we hope will be equally or more successful among young people. This will be detailed in several days, in a new post.
Interest in the minigolf was high some thirty years ago, when it seemed that campsite went obligatory with a minigolf, but in the later years the trend seems to go in other directions. Moreover, our minigolf was full of palms and other plants that grew very much, so much that they were too dense for the small area. These plants will be now of very good use in the new playground area in front of the apartments.

Starting parkings for the bungalows

Vadim is currently putting some new signs for the bungalows' parkings. A lot of signs and numbers are going to be needed until it is completely ready.

Wednesday, 3 April 2013

New bungalows not ready yet

Because it has been raining a lot in marz, the gardeners couldn't finish the green area in front of them. Now they are again at it, preparing to finally put the grass. We will be reserving these bungalows from the middle of May, maybe beginning of June.

Sunday, 31 March 2013

New equipment being painted

Some of the poles discharged some days ago are being painted. More about it in the next days.
