We chose the beach club on the recommendation of friends. We stayed in a 3 bed in the Praia row. The apartment. Spacious, comfortable, great barbeque area, sea views, English TV channels for the kids and good Wifi. The restaurant. Child friendly, good value. Only issue is we could not order any food between 4 and 6. With young children... More

Just back from a fantastic holiday at Dunas Douradas with our young family. The resort is beautiful and has been thoughtfully designed and equipped. I think the architects, owners and staff deserve much credit for this as they seem to have considered everything a guest would need. This might not be the place for teenage children or those looking for... More

Great stay - you will not beat ddbc for a relaxed luxury stay in the algarve. Watch for: Whirlpool is ready to go in arrival (double check) Security have you on check in list - stroppy response from guards at times Pick and book your Quinta restaurants in advance ...... Especially good are florian (pricey) and green valley (families). Try... More

I stayed here with my two teenage sons in July 2014. Everything was first class, from the warm welcome to the luxury apartment, beautiful sea views (Apt j54) and amazing rooftop terrace with jacuzzi! The pool area was lovely and the large grassy area overlooking the beach was thoroughly enjoyed by my sons as there was plenty of room to... More

This is a great resort. It is a large property and the units are very well appointed. Everything is extremely clean. Be picky about where you stay (the web site has a map of the complex). Don't stay by the pool unless you have kids and want that. It is quiet and more scenic further up. The staff is helpful.... More

This Beach Club is excellent, we have just spent a long weekend here in an apartment with wonderful sea views. The resort really is first class & we found all the staff to be very polite & attentive, the reception staff were very helpful & booked golf, taxis & restaurant reservations without hesitation.

Great facilities and some (but not all) stand out people in the restaurant and pool bar. Essentially high quality apartments rented out to customers by a management company on behalf of the owners. Reception has been lifted from the local jailhouse -- charmless, unfriendly/fake, officious and set to merely do what is required. Dunas insist on 100% advance payment and... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and for your compliments about the facilities and apartments. As we usually receive good reviews about our staff, obviously something did not go well for you to write such strong words about our reception staff. We take this matter very seriously and would like to get to the bottom of the incident that... More

My husband and I have just returned from a week with our 3 children (13, 11 & 7). We all loved Dunas Douradas and will definitely return. The service is extremely efficient, helpful and so friendly in every part of the resort. The staff are sensible, real people unlike the rather pompous staff that we found at Martinhal last year....

simply fantastic - location, apartment, pools, service, restaurant, family friendly, access to beach, pool bar, bus to supermarket ................. Would recommend eating in the restaurant for lunch; very casual and can go straight from the pool! Dinner is also good but restaurant seems to lack the buzz that some other restaurants have.

I cannot think of one single criticism about this resort. We stayed in a vista downstairs apt - 2 adults and 3 kids. Absolutely perfect in every way.
