Site located in pine trees, with individually demarcated pitches, creating a neat and tidy impression. Water and 6 amp electricity between pitches. Beach accessed through gate at end of site. Helpful receptionist who spotted that we were eligible for a lower rate than the standard, ACSI rate. Returned for second stay during our return journey in February 2017.

We were lucky enough to find a pitch near the beach side and what a beach! The magnificent beach just a few yards away with its safe swimming, body boarding and surfing was all you needed on a hot summers day. The restaurant was not up to much but the staff were all very friendly and there was fun in the bar and Wifi. One of the better Orbitor sites as we had experienced a few en-route - we would love to be there again next year.

This campsite has a wonderful beach about 200m outside the gates but the general service is poor. Camping cars be careful of sandy pitches and deep holes. We had to get a tractor to pull us out of the pitch! No shade whatsoever on more stable pitches and in July it was 38°.

Of the Orbitur sites we have stayed on this was the best as far as the facilities were concerned, the impression was that money was being spent to maintain those facilities in good condition. The staff were friendly and helpful although none spoke English. We thought there was little in the area to interest us but a visit to Montemar-o-Velho castle is a must despite our guide book saying otherwise.

We arrived with car and caravan and had no problem with the pitch. However for campers over 3T then you could easily get stuck especially with four-wheel drive! Nice to see that Day Room & Bar where 'Open' even in Winter, so you could access Internet in comfort while enjoying a coffee or beer, and the staff are really helpful, and pleased to see you.

Poor space on the pool. The pool is nice thou,but poor space around the pool. Garbage collect and cleaning aspects excellent.

Returned June 2008. Site still not very crowded. Access to flat and stable pitches under trees at rear of campsite more suitable for motorhomes but very difficult for any longer than 7 metres. Easy access to beach at few hundred metres. Site very clean, rear gate locked at night for reasonable security. Staff extremely caring and helpful in emergency. Will no doubt return here. Good site for dog owners, no extra charges, lovely walking.

Were here for several days in early '08 with friends, both of us in motorhomes. Finding suitable pitches is very difficult for motorhomes of more than a few metres. The surface was too sandy and treacherous. Back entrance to path to beach closed in winter, so need to walk all the way around on difficult sandy path. Virtually empty in winter, despite excellent climate. Beach fabulous for walkers. Nearest village with good small shops within easy walking distance.
