The staff is always extremely helpful and welcoming and the restaurant is very good. There are three outdoor pools and one indoor pool. There is a gym and many other facilities. The area is... More

Spent 2 weeks here in July. Couldn't fault the facilities or accommodation in any way. The apartments are modern and clean and daily maid service is great. The pool area is nice if a bit busy. The location near the great beach is fabulous. It's convenient to the Val do Lobo tennis centre which is handy. My only reservation is... More

Our great plans for New Year’s Eve were rather disappointing for a space supposed to ooze exclusivity like Dunas Douradas. As it turned out, despite the fact that the masterfully cooked 5 course meal and excellent wine were spot on the atmosphere got totally ruined by a large group of four- years-old running around. You would think it would be... More

Amazing. The apartments are spacious with a large balcony or hot tub. The beach is private with access to all famous seafood restaurant 'Maria's'. I would definitely recommend this restaurant with nightly rates from £250 and it is a very good price for what it is

We visited here early October . We had a 3 bedroom ground floor apartment with a hot tub. I really can't recommend this resort highly enough to anyone. The beach is wonderful and Maria's restaurant just in front of the resort is fabulous. We had breakfast once at DDBC and it was very good although the service was dreadfully slow.... More

6th year of staying here. We love it to bits out of season. Everyone's friendly, the service is great. The apartment is divine overlooking the wonderful beach. Can't fault the place. Would recommend to everyone. The breakfasts are terrific and good value even if you aren't staying.
