Stayed for two nights late May 2022. The lady on reception when we arrived was very helpful and processed check in efficiently. You are given a pass for your windscreen and wrist bands which she fitted at the desk. If you lose either there is a fine! The pass has to be returned at checkout. Your ACSI card is retained until you leave. Our subsequent two visits to reception were not so pleasant as there was a young guy with an abrupt manner and bad attitude. The swimming pool area looked good but we didn\'t use it. There didn\'t seem to be enough sunbeds to cater for busy periods though, but there were enough for this time of year. Toilet facilities were clean but very dated and in need of renovation. No toilet paper or hand drying facilities. Pitches were varied with a few hard standings and the rest were dirt and shingle. Some levelling is needed. Electricity connection points were not optimally placed and often needed cables to be laid across roads. Also the boxes were locked so you had to find your pitch, locate the nearest box then return to reception to arrange for someone to meet you there to plug in. We didn\'t use the electric in the end as our pitch wasn\'t well served but I suspect you have to go through a similar process on departure. There were lots of permanent residents/seasonal pitches. We found a spot between two that were not occupied so had a lovely quiet stay. In fact it was the first CC campsite we have stayed on this trip where we haven\'t been annoyed by local barking dogs. There are two motorhome service points, one at the top of the site and one at the bottom. We found one extra toilet emptying point, but depending where you pitch it can be a bit of a walk to them. The Jolly Bar on site is run by a nice English couple. We had Sunday lunch which was good, however the pricing was not far off UK prices. Up in the mountains food and drink was cheap. There is a shop on site but with a limited range of stock so call at a supermarket on the way if you need supplies. Alvor in general seems to be a predominantly British tourist trap and priced accordingly. If you like Irish and sports bars you will enjoy but other options are available. It was a little too \"home from home\" for us. That said Alvor is a lovely town with plenty of choice. The harbour area in particular is very nice. If you are walking or cycling there are some steep hills both on the campsite and in Alvor. If you are a beach lover be prepared for a long walk.

Nice friendly campsite with good bars and eating places onsite. live music at the weekends a bonus. Good swimming pool but a long walk to the beach and souvenir shops. Would definitely come again.

Calm place with no problem about Corona. Always I put my mask in facilities and outside the family caravan. All tourist people put the facial mask. We need put all days the mask if you enjoyed holidays in safety.

Great location- walking distance into the beautiful town of Alvor.
Toilets and showers are very outdated and seriously need an upgrade. The location is the only reason to use this site.

Difficult to work out where pitches were as no system of numbers or markers. Ground uneven and dusty apart from top of site which looked very cramped. Wi-fi ok as was pool although sun beds needed attention or cleaning. Small shop and reasonably priced bar. A lot of permanent residents who frequented the bar. Easy access to the town and seafront downhill with plenty of shops restaurants and bars ..including several Irish bars, but also very good Portuguese local restaurants. Can only pay with cash in reception.

Camping estrategicamente ubicado para combinar playa y visitas.
Inconeniente camping con parcelas en terrazas dificultando aparcar con caravanas sin Mover. A mi gusto falto atencion del personal de recepcion y operarios del camping para ayudar a colocar caravanas en plazas tan complicadas. Ayuda que si encontre en muchos otros camping. Ahi te dicen ahi estan las plazas coge la que te gusta era temporada Baja pero me falto ayuda.

camp site Bars too much like burger, fish n chips, karaoke etc.camp shop closed??? No cards at all (except Portuguese bank cards) so have cash. Reception staff miserable. 10 minute walk into Alvor port and old town - lovely. walk to town centre and beach something else 20 mins. Free camping arrangement no pitch allocation vans may be very close. Alvor fortunately really nice though lots of Brit/irish bars. Support the local businesses and you will see the friendliness come good.some class restaurants.

The position is good to get to Alvor, Praia de Rocha and Portimao easy cycle to all. Bar/restaurant ok if you want anything with chips. Toilets clean but dated. No marked pitches so can imagine if busy pretty chaotic but plenty of room in May

Not a bad site, with clean toilets and showers.

The site has no logical layout, yes it’s large enough, but we found it difficult to find a flat pitch for our tent and couldn’t get one with shade.

That said we stayed for over a week and seemed to get use to the local barking dogs.

Good entertainment some evenings, the campsite allows new arrivals with caravans and motorhomes up until midnight. So witnessing idiots turning up well after dark trying to negotiate this steep and poorly lit area is most amusing.
