10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"I decided to book Sanguli as an alternative to high rise hotels etc. Travelled with my then 3 yr old son and my mum. Would recommed this for anyone who has children and would like lots going out without being in the main hustle and bustle of a resort centre. The site is literally accross the road from a not to crowded beach! Ideal for little ones! If you do wish the venture into Salou, the bus and 'blue train' stops are right outside. The pool areas are fantastic with a snack bar close by! I would have to say the entertainment was very spanish aimed at the spanish children - but the entertainers do involve everyone who wants to join in! We are planning to go back june 09!"

"Just returned from an 11 night stay at Sanguli, booking direct with the site and I must say it was brill. Lets put it this way, I'm so glad we stayed here and not at one of those awful hotels in the heart of Salou. YUK!! Sanguli is situated nearer Cambrils than Salou and its far far nicer. Salou town is full of old dirty looking hotels, however saying that the hotels situated near to the Portaventura Theme Park appeared alot nicer. The campsite itself its lovely, everythings catered for, 3 lovely pools, the big one with a pool bar, restaurante, doctor on site 2 shops, laundry services, the list goes on. I have never been to a campsite like this one. They even had an amputheartre with nightly shows including Cats, Shrek, The 4 tops etc. The site is located about a 15 min walk from the local train station. If like us your travelling from Barcelona airport, it takes around an 1 1/2 hours to get there. The taxi fair from Salou train station is about 7 Euros, you could walk it, but its easier to get a taxi. On arrival at the site we booked in and a golf buggy was arranged for us to take our luggage and tent to our pitch which i thought was a rather nice touch. The site was very busy but that was to be expected. It was July/Aug after all. Our pitch was a standard size one, but had ample shade. Some of the bigger ones didn't have this. I'll post pcitures soon. Book now Sanguli wont dissapoint."

Great place to stay but !!!!!!!!!!!
"We stayed in the Taihiti suite which was dark but very comfortable. The only problem I had with this site was the pool with the slides although it was great fun for the kids the water was not clean. One day my son spotted some baby poo floating around and we had to notify the lifeguard who dealt with it immediately. Then another day I put on a pair of goggles and had a look under the water and I was surprised at how dirty the water was. Now we went at a very busy time I know but still I feel they should clean it more often especially when the kids are inclined to swallow some of it. We used the local bus all the time to get around and we found them excellent. We did have a great time but not sure if I would go back to this site."

Sanguli Camping Resort - well worth a try!
"Just got back from Sauguli camping resort, just outside of Salou, it was a lovely family site and would recommend it to families wanting a relaxing break. The site has various companies on it and also has a large area for touring van, which get ample space. We went with Siesta Holidays, we flew to Barcalona and hired a car and then drove down to the site. The site is large and you do need to keep an eye on your kids as its so big they could get lost and there is traffic on an off all the time. The site provides 3 pools to suit all the family, but don't bank on a sun lounger unless you are there when they open the gates to the pools at 9am. I only had a couple of moans about this site and one was that people take all the sun loungers then don't turn up till after lunch to use them, by that point we had been there all morning and had to use the grassed areas. But by late afternoon the grass areas then are occupied by a small groups of teenage girls and boys, which can intrupt your peace. Avoid buying drinks at the pool bars during the day, most people took there own, quite expensive. It was nice not to be surrounded by Brits and have lots of nationalities on the site. All the campsite staff are spainish, some where lovely but some very ignorant. The site has its own entertainment programe going on which we did not bother with, but if you want there is exercise classes in a gym or in the pool, a kids club and evening entertainment. The site has strict rule about noise and once midnight comes its all quiet which suited ourselves. The site has two supermarkets which we found had ample supplies and were reasonable in price. There is also a couple of eating areas near the pools, we never ate there, so can't comment. But Salou is on your door step, there is a few restaurants and bars just outside the campsite or if you walk a mile up the prom (which is lovely) you can find a few more. Would recommend d'Albert, near the first fountain, good food, reasonable price, service a bit slow! For those of you wanting to keep in trim while away, there is a gym on site, its very basic but I found it better than having to get up at 7am to run before it got to hot! Cost is 4 euros a day or 15 euros for the whole of your hols, but it closes on an afternoon between 1pm and 4pm which was a pain as I would have rather used it then and the limited opening meant some mornings it got busy. As for Siesta Holidays, the reps and maintenance man where friendly enough but the information pack told you nothing about the facilities on the site. There was no welcome meeting, although my partner said he did noitce one written on the board a few days after we arrived. When you asked them then about certain things they where vague, i.e. cost of gym, times or cost of the tram that ran up and down the front. Poor information, needs improving. Accommodation was near enough how it was described on the website."

Can't wait to return
"A lot has already been said about this camp site and it really is fantastic, we could not find one single fault with it. However, would not use the Siesta accommodation again. On our arrival it was grubby and my 8-year old found a medicine capsule on the floor. Siesta customer service was very poor and were unconcerned about it. Have booked 3 weeks next July direct with Sanguli and got it at much the same price as 2 in June with Siesta. Our accomodation for next year is more spacious and better equiped. ...we can't wait and the kids can't wait to see the kid's club mascot "Guli" again! Have never gone back to the same place twice, no matter how much we have liked it but don't think we can beat for all round entertainment for the kids, ours are 4,5 and 8 and they'd not forgive us if we went anywhere else."

"Sanguli was brilliant, already booked to go back! The site itself had everything for families and children a week was definately not enough to be able to do all the activities. A 20-25 minute walk away is the heart of Salou, worth a night out the see all the fountains, and a similar distance to cambrils, which is more of a quieter fishing village. We went to barcelona for the day on the train which is easily accessible fom the site. All the staff were friendly, and the showers and toilet blocks were kept clean all day and night! The only downside we found to the site was the fact that the entertainment at night was mostly in Spanish, but the children still loved it and the entertainers were really friendly. The site is also perfect for beach lovers as it was only over the road and had lots of watersports and was lined with bars and restaurants. Overall, a fantastic holiday, we had never been to an Al Fresco holiday before, but have already booked to go abck as everything is literally on the doorstep!"

top class campsite
"Just back from this campsite, where we camped independently with our own gear. We had an excellent pitch in the middle of the site and would recommend independent campers to select area C or W if poss as the pitches are a good size with nice shade, though be aware the middle road on the site is a busy thoroughfare for people to and from the entrance to all parts of the site. The site is on a gentle slope, with a pool and bar at the top, middle and bottom, so if you are in the middle area you are convenient for everything and its not too much of a hike back from the beach. There really is something for everyone here, but also the option to sit quietly if thats what you prefer. There are two good supermarkets on site, which is handy as Salou doesnt offer much variety, and they are open all day, everyday until 10 at night in the season. The showers and loos are tip top, continuously being cleaned from morning until night. The train line runs across the front of the site, and there is a barrier control to get across, but this was never an inconvenience and we were rarely disturbed by the trains as you became accustomed to the hoots! In the high season there was entertainent most nights in an open air amphi theatre which was amusing at times...for the wrong reasons! The beach is only 50 metres from the entrance, however be aware as the site is so big, you could be walking another 1/2 mile to your pitch! The beach is superb as is the sea, great for all ages. All in all an excellent site, but if you want small and quiet probably not for you."

"I was a little nervous - We had always gone on apartment holidays with our 3 children - Never again - Sanguli Campsite changed our minds for good - IT WAS FABULOUS!! I recommend it highly - We booked it directly- (it saved us a few euros) The site itself is spotless and the kids had a wonderful time - We stayed in a Tahiti bungalow and next time (we are already planning for next year!) we will stay in the Tahiti executive - just a little bigger and towels are supplied!! The staff were friendly, very helpful and could answer most of our questions!! It is a wonderful relaxing holiday -"
