After reading some earlier reviews we were a little concerned about this park, however it really is OK and a great place is Alvor. Staff friendly upon arrival, the pool great and whilst the showers are very old..like many in Portugal , they were clean and cleaned regularly. The biggest issue is with the pitches and that they are not clearly defined and near some real upkeep to at least try and level them or at least remove tree roots, fill in large holes , trim branches etc etc. the town of Alvor is a real gem and the restaurants are lively, cheap and friendly. There is not really a bus at the front door as shown..it only goes to nearby village, so it\'s a 15 minute walk into the centre of town to get the bus. Worth doing, as trips are great to all nearby towns..Lagos etc. The old town and bars etc are only a ten minute walk and there is a huge supermarket one minute away ! Would recommend and return

Very poor campsite. water was cold. the picth very small. toilets stinks. very expansive and the staff not helpfull. When you pay the night the reception don\'t give you any receipt (very weird, for sure they don\'t want to pay taxes).

nice site the toillets a bit dated but it all works the best thing is it\'s not laid out like a car park you can choose where you pitch up in the sun or under shade bit narrow in places but good the town of Alvor is close to the site and has something for all the beach if you walk to the end is Beautiful to your left by the cliffs we\'ll be back

Oct 2015, last English review, says it all. An easy walk into town which is nice. Facilities kept very clean and always plenty of hot water but pitches somehow a bit random. Only stopped a couple of nights as just didn\'t seem our thing. Others may disagree.

Camping ombragé mais très peu de place pour les camping car, surtout ceux de 7m a 7m50. On s\'est retrouvé au fond du camping avec des caravanes et 1 camping car qui étaient abandonné depuis un certain temps et l\'endroit pas entretenuont aurait dit une casse de véhicule. On est resté 1 nuit.

17 jaar lang de winter doorgebracht op deze camping maar ben nu alleen nog maar welkom indien ik een mobil-home koop of een jaarplaats neem. De gewone toerist die er maar een paar maanden per jaar komt kan dan de verloren hoekjes op vullen, neen dit WAS een prima camping maar nu??

Emplacements petits et peu nombreux car préférence est faite aux mobilhomes et résidents anglais. Le personnel féminin peu agréable à l\'accueil. Commerces à proximité.

Very convenient campsite in walking distance to the town of Alvor. Large supermarket close by. First impressions were a little disappointing as the layout is very higgledy piggedly and the facilities quite dated. However everything worked and lovely pool & pleasant bar area/terrace. There is another campsite much nearer the beach and the same distance from the town but it is more an estacion servico Autocaravannes with just electricity and a water/elsan point though the low price reflects this. Wifi is woeful but fortunately there are a number of bars and restaurants in town with excellent free wifi.

Veel hoogteverschil op de camping. Plekken soms erg lang en ongemarkeerd, waardoor het niet duidelijk is of je ergens kan staan. Sanitair beetje goedkoop maar wel in orde. GEEN wifi op de plekken. In de zomer eigenlijk te heet om naar het strand te lopen. Supermarkt om de hoek is perfect. Pizzeria op camping is ook erg goed.
