Travelling party: Seniors

Large site near beach accessed along 2km cobblestone lane. Little vegetation, so site looked a bit desolate, despite many pitches occupied by permanent caravans. 6 amp electricity supply which readily trips off.

Travelling party: Seniors

This site is over priced and has very little going for it for the winter camper. This is the second time we have visited this site and will undoubtedly be the last. Each time the restaurant has been closed. The beach is filthy (not the fault of the site). The roads to the site are badly maintained and potholed and on our visit were constantly narrowed by local farmers dumping loads of manure opposite their small holdings. We will not be returning to this site. In our opinion one of the worst sites we visited in Portugal.

Travelling party: Couple

This park would be ok except for the following
1 the shower blocks are clean but in 7 days I only had one hot shower, the rest were tepid to say the least and women's tolilets are smelly
2 a bit of water to the gardens to keep the dust down on the windy days
3 the staff can be a little bit abrupt some times
4 check your maps to make sure you come in the right way when you have a large motor home as surrounding roads are narrow.
Apart from number 1 staying here is ok for large vans, just bring extra power leads, not too many power points around.
