I can't say enough about all the staff who go out of their way to make you feel special and take care of any need... More

Wow, we are so glad we have found this resort and will be back. We travelled with 5 children and always find problems finding large enough 5 star accommodation. This is perfect in every way. It may have been fully booked but you would have no idea, everything is so spread out it felt like we had the resort to... More

Despite looking we have been unable to find anything to match it, hence the reason we return year after year. Only slight issue this year was the service in the restaurant which was a... More

We've stayed in a number of resorts and hotels along the Algarve and this wins hands down. The apartments are spacious, well kitted out and are kept immaculately clean - maids come in to clean and change towels daily. The pool area is lovely - always plenty of sunbeds, whatever time of day. In fact, it's the first time we've... More

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.

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
