Just spent a glorious week at Dunas Douradas Beach Club. The house (three-bedroomed ground floor) was truly amazing, from the outdoor kitchen to the hot tub to the fully equipped kitchen. We really appreciated the daily cleaning, we felt like we were truly on holiday. What really stood out was the kids club. Our two children aged 6 and 4... More

I have lost count how many times I have stayed at DDBC since it first opened. It is certainly more than 12 and I have just arrived home from another fabulous stay. I have looked at trying somewhere different, but I never book anywhere else through fear of disappointment. I have 2 young boys who love it. They spend their... More

It's half term at the Beach Club and the staff are raring to go for another busy season. Without doubt the club restaurant, Albatroz, takes some beating. It caters for the high level of expectancy you would expect from a 5 star resort, the staff are mature and experienced and the menu choice probably the widest on the beach. Last... More

Tucked right over the sand dunes in a vacation oasis in Almacil. Large villas with ocean view and a full service pool and restaurant complex. Great food with first rate service. We used Dunas Doradas a 2 day chance to decompress before heading back to the U.S.

Been here for lunch before - never disappoints. The 'new' Portuguese steak is fab! And the sautéed potatoes to die for, we'll be back. Clean and friendly - not one to miss on your travels. The garlic prawn starter was amazing too.
