Surely not? A Family Spa experience at La Marina, Elche

Ok, it’s a little ‘off piste’ for us… we’re normally found up mountains, snorkelling or trailing around historic places… but if you’ve got a family and you want a genuine campsite that everyone will love… then read on!!

W​e have to be honest here… we’ve not just stumbled on the amazing ‘La Marina Resort‘ near Elche… we found it last year on our route through Spain & Portugal and we’ve been desperate to return… maybe it was the fact we’d made great new friends including wonderful couples like Jeanette/Guenter or Dick/Glen who’ve helped our journey… or maybe it was the amazing waterpark which has entertained the girls over the last couple of days…. or perhaps it was the lure of the chance to have a family spa experience at the La Marina Senses
The girls were in heaven… a swirling lazy river  with water volcanoes, bubble beds, underwater jets and jacuzzi. An area to create their own version of the ‘ice bucket challenge’ complete with steam bath, Roman bath and Finnish sauna…. From hot to cold and back in 30 seconds… it certainly wakes you up!!!! And to top it off, Catherine gets to enjoy the ‘complete relax area’ with heated beds and chromotherapy.
Having spent the past 390+ days on the road across Europe, we’ve yet to find anywhere to match it… a few have come close either for more spectacular views when we’ve wild camped… others have had more to see (if you’re into city sight seeing)… but for pure unadulterated family fun with a sense of community thrown in for good measure… there really hasn’t been anything to match this place….
Throw in a series of pummelling jets…. a pool with over 50 lemons and limes… it’s really the complete sensory overload!!! Plus you have to wear an emasculating hat for the entire duration!!! So perhaps one for the girls… but in truth it’s hard not to enjoy the chance to see them having such fun…. New games were invented such as swimming upstream through the lazy river’s current… throwing lemons underwater…. but all in all it was a great afternoon’s entertainment…

so where did we park the bus for the night?
