We stayed in the family tipi for two weeks in july with our little girl. We thought it would be a good idea to experience some nature all together. And we were so right, she loved it! Sunny, the owner´s dog is just adorable and my daughter had great fun feeding the chicken. Beaches and Shopping is just around the... More

I went with my partners family to Tipi Algarve in August 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The safari tent's we stayed in were very large and accommodating. There was 6 of us in total and Calvin went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed for a large family. He even got us a second fridge so... More

We stayed here for 5 days and really enjoyed our stay. You are best to have a car because public transport does not exist. We stayed in a lovely Yurt in a corner on our own. We loved it. There was a pool but it smelt pretty bad due to poor filtration maybe? There was chickens in a coop but... More

I'm pretty lazy and have never written a review in my life. The fact that I am writing this shows how much I rated the place. A really relaxing, chilled place with a laid back atmosphere to it. We stayed in a tipi and then a safari tent. Both were really nice but I think the tipi just edged it.... More

We stayed at Tipi Algarve, originally booked 4 nights as we were travelling around. After being there for the four nights we decided to book for another 2 nights after we returned from Lisburn. Calvin and Sam were very relaxed and accommodating, which made our stay even more special. The site is very peaceful and in a car you can... More

The only reason I did not give Tipi a 5 out of 5 is because the site is a work in progress...the track to the site is very rough, and there were a few pesky wasps...but my car is quite small hence the problem with the track (family cars will manage this fine, but slowly) and wasps happen..especially in the...

My wife and I stayed at Tipi Algarve for two nights on the August bank holiday weekend 2013. The owner, Calvin, despite having a very young baby, was always around to help with queries with his trusty band of international volunteers who kept the place spotless. Highlights of the time on site were: a sunset yoga class (although my flexibility... More

We stayed at Tipi Algarve with our four children aged 9,9,7 and 5 in August for 3 nights. We had the two Safari tents side by side with their own camp kitchen. The tents were fab with a double and single bed in each and the kitchen had gas rings and a fridge so everything you needed for cooking and... More

I read about Tipi Algarve online and instantly knew I wanted to go there. My boyfriend and I booked last minute, I was worried we wouldn't be able to stay as we wanted to stay for 5 days but Calvin managed to squeeze us in for 3 days as it was mid august- peak season.
