Susana. Recepcionista del Camping Playa La Bota

I’m Susana and this is my author page.

Many of you know me from the reception of Camping Playa la Bota.

Chance brought me here, to this corner of Punta Umbria, a place I have always known from having spent my summer holidays here. In the summer of 1998, I heard that they needed someone at reception who spoke languages and I decided to apply. What started as a summer season and covering the holidays of my colleagues, turned into something more permanent from the summer of 2000 onwards… and here I am still, to this day.

Before all this, my professional path seemed to be heading towards the hotel sector. I studied Tourism in Seville a thousand years ago and after working in a tour operator and doing an internship in a hotel, I never imagined that I would end up here, in a campsite. But destiny is capricious, isn’t it?

What I love most about my job is the direct contact with the customers. Here, at the campsite, the relationship with them is much closer and more personal than in a hotel. Also, working in an outdoor environment, surrounded by nature, is priceless. And we can’t forget the working atmosphere, which is crucial for me. If I didn’t feel at ease, I wouldn’t be here, that’s for sure.

When I’m not working, my favourite pastime, as typical as it sounds, is spending time with my family. However, working most weekends prevents me from spending as much time with them as I would like to. That is perhaps the most difficult part of this job: the lack of holidays and weekends off.

Advice for first-time visitors?

I would tell them to enjoy the tranquillity of being close to the sea, in direct contact with nature. And that as well as enjoying the sun and the beach, they can also enjoy cultural tourism, as we are very well located, just 11 km from Huelva, 2 km from Portil, 5 km from Punta Umbria and less than an hour from Seville and the border with Portugal.

I hope to see you here soon, enjoying all that our campsite and its surroundings have to offer!
