Our Client Reviews of Park Playa Bara

This two week holiday was fantastic! Stayed with Siesta Holidays, which we would use again, and the caravan was very clean and in good order, always pick the air conditioning, it would be essential. We went with another family, with a combination of 4 kids aged 9 to 13. The resort was outstanding, clean, secure, well staffed, catered for everything, I even spotted a dog shower and car wash! The onsite restuarants were great and not dear, the supermarket had a great selection of food for different nationalities, and they could have been dearer because they had a captive audience but weren't, if you spent over €40 they delivered your shopping free, handy if you have bought water and wine! The saline pools were well manned with at least three visible life guards posted at any one time. The pool bar is a great for both adults and kids for a light refreshment. The tapas at the bar above are excellent value and very tasty. You are also within easy walking distance of the beach, so you can have the best of both worlds. The free entertainment at the amphitheater is also excellent along with the happy hour between 7 and 8 there. The kids enjoyed hanging out at the football pitches, playing basketball and table tennis. This was the first holiday that the only time we saw the entrance was when we arrived and the time when we left, there is so much to do here and the walk to the beach and beyond caters for everything else. I highly recommend this resort and would challenge anyone to find a better, cleaner, safer, well run family site. We all would like to go back!
Footnote: is that we met another couple and they could buy nearly 3 weeks with Siesta for the same as 2 with eurocamp. Also the Siesta caravans are in a nice quiet corner of the site.
Alan - August 2014

I stayed at this site for the first 2 weeks of September 2013, the weather was fantastic, the site was clean, tidy and very well kept. The on site facilities were fantastic, the entertainment was also a very high standard. The restaurants all served great food. The on site supermarket was more than adequate. Also over the main road opposite the main entrance in a large supermarket selling everything need for a self drive camping holiday. The pool complex was also fantastic, views from the top sun deck are lovely. 
We stayed with Siesta Holidays, our van was excellent and the couriers were brilliant. 
I've read negative reviews for this site and at first prior to booking this concerned me, but I'm glad I ignored them. Me and my family have used over 12 different sites around the Costa Brava and Costa Dorada and I have to say this site is certainly one of the best. 
If you venture out then a trip to Tarragona and a wander around the town and the Roman ruins are a must.
The beach is a short walk, and again it's one of the best Spanish beaches I've used
a_b_c_etc - Sept 2013

An excellent park offering both good on-site amenities as well as easy access to the beach, a few minutes walk away. Pools were great with slides that kept the kids happy. A little tricky to get a sunbed but we weren't too bothered and opted for the grassy area (you can take chairs in if you have them).
The main restaurant has a nice atmosphere in the outside garden area and the food was good, though not amazing and reasonably priced, as was the take-away, shop pretty good value too. The night entertainment is hosted in the amphitheatre and is a great venue, we enjoyed it each time we went.
The spa is good value, 1 hour massage plus spa access was 42 Euros.
The site is a mixture of camping and caravans. We stayed with Siesta Holidays they have around 12 caravans in a nice, quiet part of the site. I would not hesitate to recommend this site and may well book again next year.
Anon - August 2013. Travelled with family

We stayed in a Deluxe 8 with Siesta and it was fantastic, Siesta reps were very helpful. The park reception was very friendly and helpful, the kids entertainment was fab; even the day time activities, my kids really enjoyed them, usually they don't want to go but they loved it. Crazy golf, basketball, swimming, games etc. Kids disco started each night at 8pm which is good as any earlier you are rushing to get dinner and changed etc. My daughter loved the animation team, especially George! Then there was usually a show at 10pm which was well presented, Mamma Mia, Shrek etc, the animation team work very hard.
Service at the bars is excellent and the staff keep the bar and tables clean and tidy etc. Drinks are reasonable. Happy hour 8-9pm so 1 pint beer, 1 g&t and a fanta, 6 drinks in total = €9.
The park is immaculate, on site is a hairdresser, gym, large supermarket, restaurants, shop, spa which you had to pay for which is disappointing... Pool was great, kids really loved the slide, infant swimming area, basketball courts, tennis courts, mini golf, blowing alley, cinema; showing kids films each day. The Siesta area is great, thoroughly enjoyed our week here, will definitely be back next year if not before.
The beach was not very clean though this is the only down side, but not the park owners fault.
Jackie - June 2013

Just home from 2 weeks in Parc Playa Bara - stayed with Siesta Holidays and had a fantastic holiday. Siesta caravans are spacious and spotless, reps were fab too. Went with our 2 girls aged 4 and 7 and they absolutely loved it. Pool area was great - slides were shut during our first week but open for second. Beach is 10 minute walk and was gorgeous. We will definitely be back to this site it has everything you could want from a caravaning holiday - top class
