Camping Almafra Campsite is the only 5 star campsite in the Benidorm area. This rating has been give in accordance with the facilities that the campsite offers, the high level of campsite maintenance and the cleanliness of the whole campsite in general. Don’t pay too much attention to the category of ‘campsite’ though! In Spain, a campsite is a generic title given to what we know in the UK as a caravan site or caravan park. This campsite is more of a resort and most similar to what we know of as a Haven Holiday Park in the UK.

Is Camping Villamar the most popular campsite in Benidorm? Quite possibly as year after year many Brits have chosen Camping Villamar as the ‘go to’ Benidorm Campsite to live on or buy a holiday home.

Camping Villasol Campsite in Benidorm is often overlooked as one of the best equipped campsites in the Benidorm area. Camping Villasol has evolved over the last couple of years to position itself amongst the ‘Camping Resort Elites‘ with fantastic new bungalows in a village style setting.
Year on year Camping villasol improves it’s entertainment programme and offers a year round animation programme for both adults and children.
Camping villasol has a mix of touring caravans and static caravans but where it differs from the others is that the caravan is often attached to a fixed extension rather than an awning.
