 This is our third review and probably our last. In winter, this place is amazing - it offers everything you need, comfort, friendly staff, space, everything! In summer it is hell on earth.

Packed to the hilt, every space taken with BBQs, families in tents, motorhomes packed even into spaces that they should not be in. It is a fire disaster waiting to happen. It is very expensive (in summer), even more so that your up market camping village - depending on what you are travelling with - ie extras such as 6 metres or more, trailer, motorbike, car, dog etc.

In summer the price quadruples and what is a wonderful, cheap, spacious campsite in winter, becomes a packed, unpleasant and noisy place to avoid from beginning July to end August.

Shame as we have been coming here for 7 years. Time to change country perhaps.

 A most comfortable camp. All facilities and English spoken by all staff ( who are very helpful and friendly ). One mile from a really nice fishing town. Buses every hour from camp gate. Some warm rain in February with very little the rest of the year. Portuguese come here for summer. Choice of pitches ( nearby activities or quiet shady spots)

 This was our third time at this campsite. If you want hot weather, value for money, this is the place to stay. We paid about 9 euros a night for two adults and a dog. WIFI is free and works pretty well - if you park near the restaurant. Facilities include free swimming pool in off season. Tennis courts. There is a supermarket on site as well as an ATM. Food at the restaurant is reasonably priced and varied. The receptionists are very friendly.

Toilets and showers are clean and numerous with loads of hot water.

There's a huge park next door for running and dog walking etc. The town is near enough to cycle to and offers all sorts of shops and a Saturday market.

The downside is that this campsite is populated by long term Ex-Pats who start with their happy hour at 3. 30 and continue till late at night. Of course, the solution to this is not to park near the restaurant - so swings and roundabouts I guess.

It's like all places, it's what you make of it and if you want to be part of the 'in crowd' then it will appeal to those seeking company.

Unfortunately this year the weather wasn't great, but that wasn't their fault.

 A big site with lots of long term Brits and Dutch campers. We liked it, hot and cold running water, hot showers with no time limit! Toilet seats, but no loo paper or soap. It's not the Ritz, but it is kept clean and the restaurant is very reasonable. There is a mini market for the essentials and a 20 minute walk takes you into Olhao where there is a big market on Saturday mornings. Very helpful staff and free WIFI as well as a computer and printer in reception. Electric hookups are nearby and there is a walk next to the campsite for dogs. Swimming pool is kept clean and tidy. It has everything we needed and it is cheap (9 euros per night). Mosquitoes weren't too bad either. Just a small issue (wasn't a big deal), we had a package delivered from the UK, there are mail slots in reception, but they forgot to tell us, in spite of the fact we asked everyday. I guess they had other things to think about. So our advice is just to check the mail slots.

 A big site that is on the edge of town. It has 800 pitches, majority of which are totally shaded by trees, and are fairly small. In the winter months a big population of Northern Europeans over winter on the site. Any vans over 7 metres are pitched on the side of the roads that run through the site. Not the most scenic set up with sun chairs and tables on the side of the roads but most people seemed happy with it.

Toilets and showers very clean and well kept. Several blocks and we never saw any queues. Plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Loos all have seats - no toilet paper or soap though. Loads of dish washing and clothes washing areas and several washing machines. No full serviced pitches but plenty of water taps. Chem disposal at each toilet block. On site supermarket really well stocked and fair prices.

Bar and restaurant on site. Appears to be used mainly by some very long term residents who live on site. Entertainment on some evenings put on by residents.

Security passes issued when we arrived but we were never asked to show coming or going from site.

The area is great, Olhao has loads of shops and cafes but its not very touristy. The harbour is mainly taken up with fishing boats. Trips out to the Ria Formosa islands run from the prom, we paid 15 for a 3 hour trip which was fantastic. The Parque Naturale is literally next door to the camp and free to enter. A good 3 hours to walk the well marked and well kept footpaths.

This site is very cheap - for 2 adults with ehu we paid 9 per night. It won't suit everyone and it does cater to short stays, winter stays and full time caravan dwellers. However its kept very clean and tidy and very well situated with plenty to see and do in the area and only 15 minutes cycle to the town.
