Marshal Costa Blanca is a very good campsite with excellent pools.
The Europarcs cabins are up at the top left of the campsite close to the Tahitian pool complex which is beautiful.
The main pool complex is busy, pretty noisy at times with music and dance, water polo etc can be good fun. Slides are good, queuing typically 10-15 minutes.
Shop is decent, well enough priced.
Entertainment at night is late but good, 2 or 3 shows per week, foam party once a fortnight, weekly quiz.
Typically kids show kicks off at 8.30 and the main show 10-11.30pm.
Can be hard to get a seat after 10pm.
Actually a waiter was quite rude to us on the 1st night when we moved two tables of 4 together to accommodate us all (2 adults and 5 children). His attitude was very disappointing and his manager knew he’d done wrong, but blamed it on technology! This put us off eating there for the rest of the 2 week holiday.
We did have the buffet once up at the Tahitian end, good enough value.
A pint of local beer was €3.50.
Down side about the entertainment is it’s very much geared to the Spanish tourist, not much attempt to speak English. This did put our kids off joining in with the clubs etc.
Sports facilities good, a soccer pitch they played ad hoc every evening (it was too hot during the day), tennis courts, table tennis.
The cabin had good air-con and a tv with bbc which was a godsend in the afternoon, it was so hot early July.
Not really walking distance from the nearest town Catral, especially with children.
We had a car and needed it, we felt. Lidl was 10 minute drive away.
The market at the Torrevieja north slip road was 20 mins away and had loads, on a Sunday.
Catral itself had a small market on Saturday mornings, nothing to write home about.
Excellent water park in Quesada 15 mins away, suited our kids age 7-13.
Did the campsite bus beach trip to Guardamar, good value but a long day in the raking hot sun from 10am-5pm.
Reps were Dave and Karen, very helpful and informative.
Overall, our kids had a great time.
Would definitely travel with EuroParcs again. Not sure about this camp site again,it was very orientated towards the Spanish tourists who come down from Madrid and the likes.
