Redelijke camping, niet voor de natuurliefhebber. Grote camping met allemaal straatjes.
Gras is er niet te vinden. Netjes onderhouden dat wel.
Echte kritiek is er over het internet, ze zeggen gratis over de hele camping, bij ons heeft het geen dag goed gewerkt. Tegenwoordig is WiFi toch een normale voorziening. Hier is het bagger!!

Wir waren in den Sommerferien drei Tage mit unserem Wohnmobil auf diesen sehr schönen Platz. Haben für einen akzeptablen Aufpreis einen großzügigen geschnitten Stellplatz gehabt. Die meisten Plätze sind ohne Schatten. Sehr freundliches Personal, sauberer und in ausreichender Menge vorhanden Sanitäranlagen, ein sehr schöner Pool und ein hübsches Restaurant (dort haben wir allerdings nicht gegessen). Der nächste Strand ist circa 2 km entfernt, der Ort Tavira circa 6 km, mit dem Zug gut erreichbar. Wenn es überhaupt etwas auszusetzen gäbe, dann das große Aufkommen von Campern mit Hund. Wir können diesen Campingplatz unbedingt empfehlen!

Hele mooie camping, goed onderhouden. Vriendelijke mensen. Men kan makkelijk fietsen tot bij de lagune alwaar het gezellig vertoeven is. Leuke terrasjes. Mooie campingwinkel met lekker verse broodjes. Hier komen we zeker terug.

Initially I wasn’t sure about this site, but after a 4 night stay I grew to like it. It’s a bit like an aire in some respects, lots of gravel/concrete and generally small pitches (max 7m) with little shade or privacy. However, it’s got everything you need and it’s well located for the local railway station or level walk into Cabanas de Tavira with a lovely beach beyond the lagoon. It has a selection of shops/bars/restaurants. On site there’s a restaurant and mini-market, even an ATM. Security is good. Sanitation blocks are good and facilities plentiful - great showers. The swimming pool is large and a nice facility complete with sun loungers. Staff speak good English and are very friendly. The 16A electric system is a big improvement on most Portugese sites. The only disappointment was the WiFi, for the most part it was completely useless. If you’re staying at the weekend you might want to avoid pitching too close to the picnic area & sports/playground. It seems to be a focus for large groups who can make a lot of noise. Barking dogs were also a bit of a nuisance at times. The ground is very firm so not easy to pitch your awning - you’ll probably need rock pegs.

Very helpful reception staff. Most of the pitches were gravel with very little privacy between them and not much shade. There were a few long term residents but not horded like some campsites. We were able to choose our own pitch and for 18 euros a night we had a large pitch which could have been 2 smaller ones and as a large motorhome we would then have parked parallel to the road. We needed heavy duty pegs to fix the groundsheet.

Toilets and showers were clean and cleaned regularly. The swimming pool was open but not heated, although it was just about warm enough to swim briskly.
The camp restaurant served a tasty monkfish and rice stew that was freshly cooked and very hot. Along the promenade in Cabanos there were lots of bars and restaurants and a couple of small supermarkets only 1 km from the site.
A very quiet site, with few British people but that could have been down to the uncertainty about Brexit.

Vlakke maar kleine plekken, grote plekken aanwezig tegen bijbetaling, redelijke prijs, ligging in het stadje dus winkels en leuke restaurants dicht bij. Zeer vriendelijk personeel, sanitair zeer schoon!

Found the site rather depressing. Lots of grey concrete and dust, with an abandoned unit (like a bus) just up the road. Lots of long stay people, with scruffy tarpaulins over their units. A bit like a poor UK travelllers site. Pitches were small front to back (barely 6m) but we had a double pitch which was OK for width. The trees were pleasant but quite few, offering little shade. Pitches were very very hard, so a very heavy hammer and heavy duty steel pegs necessary which were damaged trying to get them out of the ground again. Some people used hammer drills. There are no dividers on pitches, just a yellow mark to denote the edge of each pitch. This meant there were no restrictions on how close units could be to each other and some were very close together. At one point, we had a young couple with an old Coca Cola van parked half a metre from us and they were cooking inside their van which was a huge fire hazard. There was only one grey water emptying point on the whole site, the motor home service point, very inconvenient. There was plenty of hot water in the showers; the facilities were old and tired, but cleaned regularly. The site was quiet and the swimming pool looked good although we did not use it. There was a children\'s play area, but it was next to a repulsive green slimy pool with ducks on it. I think it was supposed to be a decorative feature. There were also biting flies, but a mosquito coil helped.
The younger staff were good, the older ones less helpful and not so good. The restaurant was very good, nice staff and good well-priced food. The camp supermarket was full of empty shelves and no stock. Access to the site is easy enough through go d security, but beware of the tree by the road outside, the roots make a big hump in the road. Cabanas is pleasant, with a useful Spar supermarket, Taviras is pretty and worth exploring. The Gran Plaza in Tavira is a good shopping mall, with an excellent underground car park and a very large Continente supermarket. The railway station is just outside the campsite, but the trains seem very slow. The A22 is very convenient, but it is a toll road.
I would not stay here again, didn\'t really like it at all, but it\'s convenient enough.
