An absolutely fantastic site, everything you could wish for. Extremely clean showers with a plentiful supply of hot water. The facilities for a motorhome are on nearly every corner. Bus stop right outside the gate. Staff very helpful. Loved my stay. I would recommend this site to all my friends and family

We stayed for 2 nights here. It's a beautiful campsite. Well kept. The showers are lovely and hot and always spotlessly clean whenever you go in. There is a well stocked shop with a cafe outside, also a beauty salon on site too. Really handy. The bus stop is just outside the entrance and costs 1. 40 to go to Albufeira. The lady on reception was lovely and very helpful. Would definitely recommend this campsite.

After a nice couple of days here to get a feel for the place we decided to book a month for the discount, that was our first mistake.

It's not a bad site per se, but there are a few problems that anyone who is thinking of staying here needs to be aware of.

If you like peace and quiet forget it, the on site restaurant is apparently not part of the campsite, and in the weeks leading up to xmas there was a party every single night with loud bass music sometimes til 3am making it impossible to sleep.

When we complained at reception we were just fobbed off that they could do nothing as it wasn't under their control.

There are also no clearly marked pitches, so its a free for all, so make sure you leave your chairs out etc to mark your pitch if you go out for the day or there will be someone in it when you come back.

The problem when you leave it upto some jackass to decide where to pitch they will take as much room as they can, caravan, car, awning, tent, washing line, table and chairs resulting in what is a big site being really problematical to find a space to park up in when people take up 3 spaces each.

Even though there are people on the gate, they never come upto the site, so be prepared for dogs running around off the lead, barking all night, and inconsiderate neighbours who seem to think their taste in music is amazing and everyone should enjoy listening to it til the small hours.

Caveat emptor.

Big site and pretty close to outside facilities. Visited Albufeira almost every day so enjoyed that. Problem with pitch allocation and lost our pitch twice when we went out for the day. Noisy and had a problem with neighbours so moved. Staff not interested in making anybody happy so wont return. Booked into a private site outside Vilamoura for a month after (Rustic Aire) and loved it.

We spent 21 nights at this site and were really sorry to leave but were booked and paid for elsewhere.

We were with the Camping and Caravanning Club winter rally and there were events going on organised by both the site/restaurant and the rally. On Valentine's Day the meal, organised by the restaurant, was 16. 50 but was five generous courses and all the wine you could drink.

The site in general is beautifully maintained and the facilities blocks spotlessly clean. The pitches are vaguely marked and are among trees so you can pitch any way round you can fit in, which seems to make it a much more relaxed site. Some of the pitches had huge puddles when we had a couple of days heavy rain but they were quickly filled in with copious amounts of gravel.

The restaurant is excellent and we thought it was very reasonably priced, the three course lunch from noon to 3 pm is 9 with wine.

The walk into Albufeira is about a 30 minute stroll through a park. The old town is lovely and has loads of very good restaurants and interesting little shops.

Lidl is walkable but the site shop is very good and not too expensive.

Our only gripe would be the laundry facilities which were only at one facilities block, a very long walk. The machines were only domestic size and a wash or dry 5 each. Other sites we had been on charged 3. 50 and had huge machines which took a double load.

If we came back to Portugal, especially over winter, this would definitely be our site of preference.
