Quite a large site but the pitches are quite small but double pitches are available for small extra cost. We paid 15€ pn in October for a single. Most pitches have little shade. Reception was very friendly and spoke good English. Site has barrier entrance, supermarket, restaurant, swimming pool etc. Toilets/ showers were very clean and good but own paper required. Short walk to the town/harbour with bars and restaurants, supermarket and train station.
Train fares for over 65 are half price with evidence of age (3. 65€ return to Faro for us oldies).

Other reviews have mentioned the standard pitch sizes. We had no problem with our 7. 5m unit & awning. However we stayed out of season and if the campsite is full I can imagine it being claustrophobic. The campsite is very practically laid out with excellent and heated service blocks. The staff were friendly and helpful. As well as a small supermarket on site there are others within walking distance as well as the train station and bus stops.

The superb pool and good wifi is a bonus.

A very clean, neat and tidy site, maintained to a high standard with very friendly and helpful staff.

The pitches are all gravel, drain easily and vary in size. The facilities are excellent, spotlessly clean, lots of hot water, even piped music to entertain you whilst washing the pots.

Every member of staff goes out of their way to smile and help if possible. The young lady in the attached mini market always has a chat as she serves you. The range covers all the essentials and isn't overly expensive for a convenience store right on the doorstep.

Cabanas is a bird watchers delight, with easy access to the salt pans, coast, scrubby inland and cultivated gardens that throng with feathered creatures.

There are plenty of good value places to eat and drink along the front, it's a bit of a walk but worth the effort.

I'd highly recommend this site, it's friendly, spotlessly clean and in a good location, reasonably priced and everything is done to a very high standard

This is a 'high density' site with a grid structure of block paved roads and clearly marked pitches of varying sizes and prices on good hard standing, (gravel).

The facilities are clean and well maintained, although there was a 'blip' on a couple of days with the hot water in one of the two blocks, quickly rectified.

Playground looks good, (my boss said not to use!)

Pool nice and clean with recliners.

At the time of our visits there was a lot of empty pitches but I can imagine it would be crowded in high season and the small pitches are small!

Twenty minutes stroll to Cabanas sea front, nice promenade but no beach without a water taxi ride to Ria Formosa, (a long sand spit) at 1. 5 euro return.

The railway station is a five minute walk away and the line runs the length of the Algarve. For those of us in our second childhood, (over 65), proof of age, (passport) gives a 50% reduction on the already low fares. This is a real plus as it is much quicker by train than driving with no parking problems.

We paid 112 euro for two adults, motor home and electricity for 7 nights, we got a 10% reduction for international camping card.

Long termers get a much better rate.

We recommend this site mostly for the convenience of the train to visit other places, although its other attributes are good.

Site less than 4 years old, but does appear to have been there longer as it seems dated in style. Over 300 pitches - the pitches are fairly small and several people were paying for 2 pitches to give more space. We found ok with a campervan - but then another camper parked next to us and totally blocked all sun light. Would say spaces are more ' aire' sized. All pitches are on gravel with ehu.

Site staff are brilliant, speak good English and very happy to help on anything at all. We got great recommendations on where to eat etc from reception.

Toilets / showers are immaculate, plenty of hot water and cleaned regularly. Swimming pool and petang courts plus small children's play area on site. There is also a cafe / bar which served good meals for less than €4 and also a gym and reading room.

A 10-15 minute walk into Cabanas and well worth it - really lovely town with plenty of cafes and bars along a promenade facing a lagoon. The beach is on the other side of the lagoon and you reach by water taxi. Even in February we found most places open and plenty of life around town.

The Algarve cycle way runs towards through Cabanas, you can ride to the Spanish border going east (mainly on tracks and quiet lane) or as far as you want west, we found it about 15 miles to Olhoa and great paths through the Salt Pans.

There are numerous trips out to the Ria Formosa, worth every penny its stunning.

Overall a good campsite in a fabulous area. The pitches are small but if you choose carefully then you should be bale to find one where you get some sunshine too. We would use again for sure. We paid €14 a night for 2 adults with ehu.
