We have been here a year now and love it.   It's a great place to live if you want the support of your neighbours and want a community spirit.   Great choice of houses and areas.

This is very inflammatory and totally untrue.  Yes there is a very small percentage of houses that have problems but not any where near the extentyou are suggesting.  There are over 5000 properties on Camposol and if life was so bad there why are there so many people still there after 18 years and still people wanting to move there.  You obviously have a personal grudge against Camposol.   Which is sad but your experience does not hold up for the rest of the residents there.

When you get rid of the smell beneath your nose and get TRUE facts you will have a right to comment. Until then don't slag off the people that live there.  They are genuine people who care for each other.

Sorry but sector B has the most shops, bars and restaurants, god it must be at least 12 years since you have been to Camposol, but I do agree with a few things that you mention

Camposol  is a bit of an enigma wrapped in a mystery,  A sector residents live in palaces, B sector is noisy in summer because all the residents rent out there houses and clear off somewhere cooler.  C sector has a golf club and a newly re-opening hotel.  D sector is full of  quiet restrained people  whose houses seem to mysteriously get bigger and bigger, with swimming pools appearing almost overnight, along with extensions and other amendments.

The gardening groups have worked steadily to improve the surroundings of the roads and the phantom tarmac gang appears on a regular basis, fixes the potholes, and vanishes again. The fish and chip shop does a roaring trade and the local supermarket sell lactose free milk and gluten free bread along with most other requirements.  Coffee and wifi ? no problems in the local café/bars   After you have scoffed your cakes you can nip down the gym.  Thursday morning over to the market on A sector followed by more cakes and coffee.  

Most of the houses have been standing for at least ten years and you can quickly identify any that have problems  as you can in the uk.  The original developers have finally gone totally and completely bankrupt.   All their stock of old houses have been disposed off at bargain prices and the general appearance of the place is improving, and the new airport at Corvera is only 30 minutes away.  

What about the floods that happened once, 4 years ago?  The local, regional and national authorities had a circular meeting and all blamed everyone else.  Thankfully no one had guns. Perhaps the fact that the local water board opened the overflow dam gates on their reservoir had something to do with it.

What about the certificates of habitation which you have to have before you move in and connect up your water and electricity? Just didn't happen. You can't have a town of 5,00 houses full of people without final paperwork - can you?  Erm.. Afraid you can, It is all a bit of a mistery?
