Just back from 2nd time visit with young family (all three under 10). Have also done Pine Cliffs, Martinal and Blue & Green Villamoura over the last few years. I liked them all but I think Dunas Doradas is the best of them - very high standard of accommodation (best I have seen - very cleverly designed apartments with large... More

Dunas is 5 star from all perspectives. Accommodation, restaurants, pool and especially beach close to VDL for entertainment but away from the crowds and great for beach restaurants like Maria's that are fantastic.

Our 4th visit in 5 years and standards are still superb. Stayed in 3 bedroom ground floor in Praia which is very close to pool but no significant noise. Albatroz restaurant excellent and better value than many nearby well regarded restaurants. Staff very friendly. Only comment is housekeeping come calling a little too early (10.30am) for sleepy teenagers !

This resort has everything you need for a relaxing family holiday. Many people seem to return which indicates its quality. Speaking to other guests everyone has come to the conclusion that there is nowhere else that comes close to this development . It is kept spotlessly clean and the apartments also get a thorough clean each day . I expected... More

This place is just amazing, the location is very convenient for the airport and obviously right on the beach. The main outdoor area is sheltered from the coastal winds but still affords a gentle breeze. There are 4 pools and a hot tub with numerous comfortable sun loungers all over. The pools vary in depth and design and we found... More

Quality of apartment was excellent, Maria's restaurant on the beach is recommended. Hotel to airport shuttle bus driver was very rude, threw our bags on the kerb and drove off without a word.
