Loved this campsite it had everything going for it from the moment we checked in & collected our plastic wrist bands!
The price was great, we only intended to stay 4 nights but ended up staying 7 it was so good. The pitches were pretty level some had lots of shade, others not so much. There was free WiFi around the site, which was a little sluggish but in view of the number of people using it in July/August it was actually pretty good! The pool was fabulous with lots of loungers around it...we always managed to get a couple no matter what time we went for a swim, and this is peak season. The site also has a small supermarket a couple of bars, and a restaurant. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly and the food and drinks were VERY reasonable. This is one of the best sites we've stayed on in Europe!
I read mixed reviews for this site! It seems to depend on where you pitch, the top of site has lots of permanents because it gets the sun in winter and the nicer toilet block, at the bottom it’s muddy, dark and the toilet block is in serious need of updating, no seats, loo roll or hot water! Be very careful before deciding where to pitch! Alvor is a lovely little town with great bars and beautiful beach.
Camping Alvor, lovely site, toilet seats, loo roll, plenty of hot (& free) water in the clean showers (they seem to have abandoned the free token system) what more could you want? We had a pitch at the bottom end of the quiet area and although bothered by a few mosquitos, we were treated to the local goat herd taking his flock of goats for a walk every evening!
Yes, the site could do with a bit of modernising, but we enjoyed the isolation of the pitches. Alvor is a lovely town with lots of choice of restaurants, excellent beach, river estuary, salt marshes & spectacular cliffs at the eastern end. The town apparently becomes VERY busy during the summer months! We will be back!
Large hillside site, with large proportion of permanent users. Space for touring pitches at far end of site. Very helpful English-speaking receptionist. Some electrical distribution boxes have higher amperage supply, so worth checking before deciding on your pitch. Short walk into Alvor town and good supermarket just around the corner from the campsite.
Beware the processionary caterpillars, they are deadly and I am suffering with an all over body rash so I am not impressed. There are a lot of the trees that attracted them and the site seems very blasé about them.
Stayed here our usual 3 nights. Found a nice pitch right down the bottom in the quiet section and it was. Small building with one toilet and one shower each, showers very good and hot, loo paper. Easy to get to Alvor and we cycled to Portimao as well. There is a pool but we didn't use it. We were able to get WiFi where we were pitched despite being told it's only round the pool. We enjoyed our stay, the only downside is the trek up to reception to get the electrics plugged in and then out when we left as they are locked.
Lovely location, near to busy seaside town with all the holiday facilities. Nice pool which is a bit extra if you want it, ideal to save money if you don't. Pitches fair size at the front but they shrink the deeper into the site you go.Lovely open space opposite for dog walking, town great for the evening. Free wifi poor , but it was free...2 pin plugs but good electric amps. No toilet seats, paper available but not in the cubicles........
We stayed here two nights. The campsite was ok. Nice pitches with shade, very clean bathrooms and nice staff. We had a car and drove to other beaches in the neighbourhood as Alvor beach is extremely crowded beach, the town has enough options for dinner.
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).
