Reviewer: Lbarkas 51 reviews from this member

We don't now tend to use the larger commercial sites but we had read good reviews and wanted to see something of the Algarve. Our circumstances meant that we arrived as the ACSI discount expired so we're in the high season and was evident from the number of families, though still not at full occupancy. We opted for a deluxe serviced pitch, but the surface of many that we considered was poor and uneven, compared to many sites we have been on.

There are several sanitation blocks - the upper one is now dated, but the one midway up the site is modern, superb, having a couple of washrooms fitted out with shower/loo/basin. All were scrupulously clean - the staff are going around the site all day.

Praia de Luz is a few minutes drive away and frequented by many British tourists, but small and friendly. Some of the cafes and bars are obviously catering for them judging by the offerings of Sunday roast, fish/chips/mushy peas, and the like.

Used the site restaurant once which has menu options as well as a buffet. Staff were very pleasant.

Wifi was dreadful considering it was a charged-for service - €10 for the week. My iPad was difficult to connect, then it was slow and dropping off.

Had a couple of nice excursions. Went to Cape St. Vincent to see the sunset one evening, the to Bordeira Beach another.

Great site with excellent facilities and a good bar and restaurant which are well used. Possibly because the site is a good walk or drive to civilization.

Site has a number of bungalows and long stay winter visitors it is terraced and covers both sides of a small hill. When we visited there were a couple of rallies on site so we ended up over the hill. We paid the additional fee for 10amp EHU but even putting on the kettle tripped the electric, which was a real pain. The water point to fill up was back near the entrance and it was not possible to connect to the the water points around the site. You could fill a container but not connect a hose.

With a 9m motorhome a number of the pitches would have been to small and we got stuck reversing onto one of the terraces with a number of pitches on it. The bike rack on the towbar caught the ground and the front wheels sunk on what I thought was hardstanding. Another camper kindly hooked onto the tow bar and helped me out. I then discovered there was another route onto the terrace which we used to exit, so worth checking your route in to the pitch, and don't assume all the hardstandings will take the weight.

This is a very classy site, fantastic facilities, very modern and luxurious.

The pitches vary in size and you can choose from a variety of positions. We chose one with shade and suffered from mosquitoes so I'd be careful when picking next time.

The supermarket stocks a brilliant range of fresh bread, cheese, meats etc as well tinned goods, wines and spirits, camping necessities and local products. The lady who runs it selects the range and I wish she stocked my local corner shop at home, I'd never shop at a large supermarket again if she did.

The whole site is clean and tidy, and reasonable value for money at €18 per night considering the comfort you have. The pool area is excellent, lots of sun beds, a hot tub and quiet areas to lay and read.

It's not in a great location, on a main road 5km from Lagos and quite a way from Luz and Burgau, you really need a car or bike to get anywhere away from the site.

We agree that this has every facility one could wish for in a camp site including immaculate washrooms, the best laundry facilities and even hot water dog showers. We found a nice pitch on gravel under trees despite the fact that the long-stayers who make up the large part of the winter population had has the pick of the best pitches.

We just wanted to add that is is possible to walk down into Praia de Luz along pavements in about 30 minutes for a lovely beach and interesting coloured cliffs. We found a few cafés open although the town looked a bit shabby out of season.

Third visit to this site and will review again as there has been quite a few changes. Fairly busy with long stayers but a good numbers of short stayers too. Plenty of pitches available in sunshine and they are happy for you to move if you want a different pitch.

The new toilet / shower block is now open in the middle of the site. Absolutely first class facilities that could give a 4 star hotel a run for their money. The cleaning staff are in and out all day and it is with out doubt the cleanest facilities block we have ever used.

At the back of the site the work has nearly been completed on the new pitching area, not yet open. Would guess about another 50 pitches that face towards the mountains - look a decent size and well terraced so everyone gets a view.

Espiche is literally next door to the site and is worth the short walk with several cafes and bars and three good restaurants. We used Adega do Papagio - where you get a plate of seven different meats which you cook yourself at your table on hot stones, along with salads, chips, rice, a pudding and a bottle of wine we paid €40 for 2 - A really lovely place which is well worth a visit.

All the staff on site speak English, are very friendly and cannot do enough to help. They work constantly at keeping the site looking immaculate. Overall the site remains about the best large site we have found in Portugal.

I have no doubt we will visit again in the future

One of the the best sites we have ever stayed at, very impressed.

The new shower blocks were very clean, the cleaners are in and out all day making sure it stays that way, some of the sinks are in private cubicles, (excellent idea), there are also 2 full shower rooms with private loo, sink and shower. There is a separate shower room for kids and even a dog washing area!

Bar and Pool area very nice, also with terraced, grassed area away from pool. There were plenty of sunbeds available but this was at the end of September, not high-season, I would imagine that in the summer when kids are on holiday it could be very busy. The Restaurant offers a Buffet for 9. 95 per person, it was quite good.

Wifi costs 10 Euros for 7 days, a bit expensive I thought as it was rather hit and miss to pick up a signal. Shop on site is expensive, but we expected that, but there is an Intermarche Supermarket in Lagos

We hired a fridge for 5 Euros per day which was definitely worth having as we were in a Tent.

The pitch itself. We booked a Deluxe pitch which had its own tap (for which you have to have a key and you pay 20 Euros deposit for it) and Electricity hook-up, I would say that the Deluxe pitches are very UNSUITABLE FOR TENTS, they are covered in large stones and we had real trouble getting the tent pegs into the ground and ended up tying some of the guy ropes to the trees, rocks the electricity pole etc!

There is a bus stop outside the site 1. 75 Euros per person into Lagos, not a very nice place to stand and wait for a bus though, no pavement and traffic whizzing past!

I would say that this site is closer to Praia de Luz than Lagos, you can walk into Luz, (or get a bus) but Lagos is a bit far to walk and the road isn't suitable for pedestrians.

All in all we liked this site at this time of year, however I wouldn't stay there in the height of the season.
