To begin with the owner gave us a warm welcome. He recommended a good restaurant nearby. The other possiblity is to have dinner in the garden of Pensao das Dunas. Fish from the BBQ and a bottle of wine is served for a great price. The breakfast is delicious!! The only improvement that could be made is the matras on... More

If you are walking through the Algarve, don't hesitate to stop at this pension in Carrapateira. This is a family run outfit with wonderful hosts. Eduardo was very knowledgeable about walking and took the time to chat with us and give us advice. Our affordable double room was as advertised on their website (30 euro) and don't miss the delicious... More

After the southern cost of Algarve, coming to Carrapateira, where this Pensao is located, is a real huge change. Everything is much more quite and relaxed, people want to surf or just enjoying the sun; and the Pensao das Dunas perfectly fits this mood! The owners are smiling and kind person that will help you in finding a place to... More

Really friendly, really cosy, great value for money and on the doorstep of the most beautiful beach in Europe. Great find, especially for families in an apartment. Particular thanks to the family running it, who take so much time to look after everyone. If value, comfort and a warm Portugese welcome is what your after, this is the place to... More

After a fair bit of travelling in- and outside of Europe I have to say this little Pension is one of the most memorable and great places I have ever been to - for the special people who run it and consecutively the interesting clientele it attracts. The Pensao is managed by Edoardo who really goes out of his way... More
