Stood here for the second time in two years. This is a Y shaped site past the entrance. The left side runs between statics onto tree covered pitches which can be difficult to reach and have little sunlight. The right side runs down to an open area with rough ground that is open but sheltered. Very badly kept, yet the best part in winter as it is in full sun and will receive wifi. There is a small but excellent, clean toilet block which, incongruously also has two warm pet showers. We really enjoy staying here, close to town and plenty of walking, with good supermarket round the corner. However, we were witness to the site being prepared for more and more mobile homes, there was already less space than 2 years ago, and we were told that there would be little space left for campers. The site always says that space is available, so phoning beforehand is not useful. We hope ACSI will evaluate this site which excellent value.

Agree with comments made by last two people. We stayed for 4 nights and there was a barking dog and sometimes more for hours on end in the evening. They weren\'t on site so not sure where they were but really annoying . You can catch a in the town to Lagos and Albufeira but get the timetable from the tourist info. Local buses about every 1/2 hour to Portimao. Lots of restaurants and bars in town .

I agreed with the last reviewer - conveniently placed, first impressions not good but once a pitch was found (chocs are a must) we settled down. Sanitary facilities old but plentiful, clean and free hot water, Wifi erratic but can be used. Staff very helpful. Only bar open early April but would return later in year.

Very convenient campsite in walking distance to the town of Alvor. Large supermarket close by. First impressions were a little disappointing as the layout is very higgledy piggedly and the facilities quite dated. However everything worked and lovely pool & pleasant bar area/terrace. There is another campsite much nearer the beach and the same distance from the town but it is more an estacion servico Autocaravannes with just electricity and a water/elsan point though the low price reflects this. Wifi is woeful but fortunately there are a number of bars and restaurants in town with excellent free wifi.

Very good place. Not so far from the beach(~1km) and little town. Only 400m from great supermarket. We were there 2 weeks and we will come back!

Stayed here for a few nights. Its a smallish site on the edge of Alvor, so you can walk into town. It has free, reliable wi-fi across the site. The pitches are quite small but well laid out with new sandy coloured gravel. the site is well taken care of, and the toilet and shower facilities clean. There are a lot of very friendly English staying here for the winter and the price of Euro 10 per night for 3 nights of more is exceptionally good value. the only small criticism would be the button on the outside of the showers giving you 4 minutes hot water which is a little shorter than I would like!
