Alan Rogers Review

If you prefer a quieter site, out of the very busy resort of L’Escala, then Illa Mateua is an excellent option. This large, family run site has a dynamic owner Marti, who speaks excellent English. The site is divided by the beach access road and has its own private accesses to the contrasting beaches - one a rocky cove and the other gentle, sandy and sloping. There are 350 pitches across both parts of the site, all with 6A electricity, some on sloping ground, although the pitches in the second part are flat. Established pine trees provide shade for most places with more coverage on the western side. A new purpose-built diving centre and club opened on the site in 2013.

There are two swimming pools, the largest an ‘infinity pool’ enjoying an idyllic and most unusual setting on the top of a cliff overlooking the Bay of Roses. The second pool in the bar, restaurant and terrace area were scheduled for redevelopment in 2014. A CCTV system monitors the pools and general security from a purpose built centre. The new diving centre offers a comprehensive programme of training, and has a small bar and snack bar. There are bungalows to rent, including one for disabled visitors, which is normally booked well in advance.


Very modern, fully equipped, heated sanitary blocks are kept spotlessly clean by omnipresent cleaners. Baby baths and brilliant facilities for children. Washing machines and dryers. Shop, extensive modern complex of restaurants, bars and takeaways (all open all season). Infinity pool (June onwards, lifeguard). Pool bar. Play areas. Kayak hire. Bicycle hire. Organised activities for children in high season. Diving school. Sports centre. WiFi over site (charged). ATM. Private access to beach.
