For the last 5 years no upgrading! The ablution blocks is so filthy and sometime, or most of the time, no water at all!! The place look just like 5 years ago with absolutely no upgrading. Some showers do no have showerheads. And when there is some water, it is cold. You can be glad to have one warm shower in 7 days. I understand now why we were the only campers except one other group of young people. When we drive to Ponta Malongane, we drive into their camping site, and it were full of campers with nice ablution blocks! Tandje beach camp will never see us again!

We camped here, it is a pity the place os so neglected. I never saw anyone clean the abblutionblocks, no opportunity to leave your garbage, so you find it everywhere. The worst is that anyone walks around and when you are eating, dressing up..no matter what, people come to sell things or beg for money. Positive is that shops, market and restaurants are very near and the beach is nice.

The ONLY positive thing about this campsite is its location - easy access to the main swimming area and surf spots. The beach in Ponta do Ouro is idyllic! The campsite however is not:

- The level of filth is, in my opinion, at an unacceptable level (see attached photos). No effort is made to keep anything neat and tidy. There is litter lying everywhere, the 'washing up facilities' (if they can be called that) are filthy with trash lying around the basins (and in them) and there are piles of rubbish lying everywhere. The packs of dogs that lurk around the campsite also result in dog poo lying everywhere.The frustrating thing is that no one cares. The supposed 'cleaner' has wondered around aimlessly (or sat doing nothing) the whole day. When I complained about the mess, no one did anything about it.
-There is no hot water at the washing up facilities, and (even though advertised) no hot water at the ablutions. One camper indicated that he didn't have ANY water for a shower. There are only three lots of campers here presently, and I would HATE to see this place in peak season given that they have enough sites to house at least three hundred people, and they only have four showers (that often don't work) for males and females respectively.
-The campsite is used as a thoroughfare to the beach for anyone and everyone. The result is that you have people walking and driving past your campsite endlessly, which detracts from your privacy, and results in an environment that would be hard to describe as peaceful. It also does not feel secure.
-The mornings are very busy with dive boats, tractors etc driving through the campsite as it provides access to the beach.
-The manager took no responsibility for the state of the campsite when I complained. She first said that it was the campers that made the mess (!?) and then she said that she has casual staff and it is their responsibility. As a manager, it is YOUR responsibility to keep the site clean. End of.

Ultimately, if you value a peaceful and hygienic environment with attentive staff who make an effort to ensure that you enjoy your stay, then this place is NOT for you.

If you can put up with filth, unfriendly and unhelpful staff, and a feeling of paying a lot for nothing in return for the sake of a good location with access to a beautiful beach, then maybe consider coming here.

The resort has deteriorated due to lack of proper maintenance. Apparently the company who did the maintenance was not paid for their services and thus no longer did proper maintenance. The ablutions were in a very bad state and hygene was a concern to us.
