Site Convenient For Gijon Ferry Port, Spain


Recommended Posts

For those using the new LD Lines ferry from/to Gijon in Spain, Camping Deva is only 4/5 Km from the centre of Gijon. It is open all year, ACSI inspected, and looks good on its website - will prove this in a couple of weeks time!

we stayed at Camping Deva for a couple of nights last week - was practically empty, bit untidy and run down looking, showers variable in temperature dependant on how many had used them, reversed polarity, reception friendly but we thought was expensive at nearly 25 Euros a night off season. They seem to have a set price all year of about 31 Euros for 2 people, car, caravan and electrics but knock off 20% in the low season. If you used all the sports facilities etc in the height of summer 31 Euros probably fine but 25 in March is high. We didn't eat in the restaraunt but were told it was ok to good.

One final thing - a couple arrived at just after 2100 hours and couldn't get onto the site but were told they were ok to use the large car park outside - no problem, except they were charged the full 25 Euros for the privilege. They were not too impressed.

Would we go there again, probably not.

We seem to have been very close but far apart we too stayed the night at Deva before the ferry home we paid only €18;00 for the stay using the ACSI card and thought that was enough

Just received an e-mail from LD Lines informing us that our Ferry will be delayed and will arrive at Gijon 20:00hrs instead of 14:00. Does anybody know if there is overnight parking for caravans at the port? We thought it would be good if we stayed over at the port for an early start the next morning rather than trying to find a site for one night.

LD Lines told me it is not possible to stay on Gijon port - the Deva site is pretty easy to find and only 20 minutes or so away, but note the comments earlier.

Hi

 

When we travelled LD from Gijon a few weeks ago there were at two travellers, one a caravanned and one a motor-hommer that stayed in the port overnight. There are two security gates to go through to get to the place you queue, waving our're computer print out got us through both with hardly a pause and talking to the caravan chappy he said did the same the previous night and was likewise just waived through. He stopped near the LD gate which is close to a port office which had toilets and showers, he said it was a reasonably quiet night and would not hesitate to do it again.

 

He and the motor-homer may of course have been lucky but the Spanish do seem to have a more laid back attitude to this sort of thing than we do.

Is there a difference perhaps between inbound and outbound? Are they happy to let you overnight in the "queue" to get the morning ferry, but not to hang around the port when you disembark? Just a thought.
