Arrived at site and greeted by very helpful gentleman at reception. We pitched up near reception and had excellent free wifi throughout our stay, paid a little bit extra to have 10 amp instead of 6 amp. Toilet/shower block very clean and showers had plenty of very hot water. Short walk through 2 tunnels took you to most fabulous beach. Supermarkets quite a few miles away and nowhere to go for a drink of meal within walking distance so felt quite isolated especially as facilities in site where not open because still low season, but overall a great site and would return.

een keer nooit meer. Voldoet niet aan wat website aanbiedt. Weg vanaf doorgaande weg naar camping gaat 3km over kinderkopjes en ingang van camping laat zien dat deze camping geen sfeer heeft. Receptiepersoneel is redelijk vriendelijk maar oogt niet enthousiast. Camping lijkt meer op een parkeerplaats en de plekken zijn krap. Camping is ook winderig ondanks de duin. Door buizentunnel naar strand vanwege het golfterrein. Strand en uitzicht goed dan goed.\'s Avonds in restaurant wat meer op een kantine leek gegeten. Een man bediende in dit geval 40 mensen en kon het niet aan, onze wachttijd op slechts een hoofdschotel bedroeg anderhalf uur en dat gold eigenlijk voor iedereen. Daarom besloten om slechts 1 nacht te blijven.

Für einen 5 Sterne Platz waren wir enttäuscht von den Stellplätzen.Sind offen gelegen und kaum abgegrenzt. Der dauernde Wind machte den Aufenthalt ungemütlich.Strand durch einen Tunnel erreichbar, aber steil und viel Wind.Am Platz selber kein Frischwasser und Abwasser.

This park would be ok except for the following
1 the shower blocks are clean but in 7 days I only had one hot shower, the rest were tepid to say the least and women's tolilets are smelly
2 a bit of water to the gardens to keep the dust down on the windy days
3 the staff can be a little bit abrupt some times
4 check your maps to make sure you come in the right way when you have a large motor home as surrounding roads are narrow.
Apart from number 1 staying here is ok for large vans, just bring extra power leads, not too many power points around.

Le point fort: très belle plage accessible du camping! Nous avons séjourné en mobil-home: propre, situation ombragée, de façon général, le camping est très bien entretenu et le personnel agréable, les possibilités de restauration sur place sont également très appréciables. La piscine est aussi un point fort. nous étions bien situés pour la visite du nord du Portugal car à proximité des autoroutes pour Porto, Braga, Guimaraes, Povoa etc... Un avis donc positif concernant notre séjour à rio alto.

Grote, zeer open camping. Weinig beschutting en veel wind. De weg erheen gaat over kinderkopjes. De caravan schudt dan behoorlijk achter je auto. Restaurant lijkt meer op een kantine en het eten was in juni heel slecht.
