The rooms were very clean, staff and owners helpful in so many ways: - Oh you forgot your towels? No problem, just borrow from us for free. - Oh you need a parasol on the beach? No, problem, just borrow one. I realize these two examples says a bit about me too, but still - these small details are what... More

Cozy place, friendly hosts who treat you like family. You'll have a clean room with a nice breakfast, and a lot of information of if you want to travel the area. Great people in a great location. Two thumbs up!

Little to add to other positive reviews. We had ensuite rooms; these were pretty basic (no toiletries at Pensao das Dunas!) but the delightful courtyard garden, informal atmosphere and friendliness of both other guests and staff more than made up for such minor shortcomings.

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

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
