The site is well located to visit Porto and the nearby beach.

The reception area is bright and airy and the staff very professional.

There is a nice pool area and the bar and shop are well stocked.

The pitching area for caravans is in the wooded area. There are no marked pitches, it's every man for himself. Whilst we were on site there was a breeze which resulted in lose pine cones and branches falling onto the van overnight.

The sanitary facilities were run down and not very clean.

We found it a bit grim and left after one night.

We stayed here for 6 nights costing 101 euros.

This is a good site for Porto as the bus stop is 200m away( the one we used passes Grahams port cave, worth a visit).

There is a tv room with wifi, tennis courts, I think there was a 5 aside pitch (couldn't get to it) a pool(not open at the while we where there) cafe and shop (open weekends in low season ?)

Very small play area for kids (very young ones)

The toilets and showers were not the best but clean and worked fine.

The staff were very good.

But this site should be a gem but we found it run down (needs updating and some repairs).

No marked pitches woke up one morning surrounded.

Long electric leads needed.

The beach is a short walk away very good sandy beach

Good supermarket near by.

This site, another in the Orbitur group, is convenient for visiting Porto and the Douro valley, but is rather run-down and depressing. It's a large site with many bungalows and permanent caravans. The touring area is also large but not divided up into pitches at all so parking was fairly random.
There are a lot of tall eucalyptus trees which also limit one's choice of location. The toilet block is basic and in need of refurbishment. The washing-up and laundry sinks have cold water only. There is a washing machine but it was out of order when we were there. The bar, snack bar, shop and swimming pool were all closed as it was low season (and yet the site was fairly busy as Porto is a popular tourist destination).
There is a pleasant beach nearby, and the bus to Porto stops close to the campsite. It's a lovely old town, full of character, not to mention port houses, many of which are open for tours, complete with tastings! A trip up the Douro valley also makes a pleasant excursion. A pity the campsite is so grim!
