Bit concerned before going as burglaries are mentioned on this site and the apartment next to us in c block was broken into. However all the signs say make sure you triple lock the door and put valuables in the safe which was 30e for 10 days and a 10 deposit. Next door did neither so you can't blame the... More

Was a bit worried after reading some bad reviews on here before we set off, but we were very pleased with the hotel on arrival and security. Some reviews on here had mentioned a spate of thefts - all rooms come with a safe you can hire for 20 Euros and door to apartments double lock. The thefts that took... More

I visited the Dunas do Alvor complex from the 23rd July to 30th July 2015. This was my second visit and once again I wasn't disappointed with the apartment! The standards have remained high and the staff there, Miguel and Sara were both very friendly and helpful. The apartments are ideally placed, close to the town and the beach. Furthermore... More

Prior to flying, we read the recent reviews and became worried about burglaries, cleanliness and noise. To be fair to the staff that run these apartments, if there were problems, they seem to have done what they can to fix them. When we got our key for the room we were also given a safe key for free (apparently these... More

Having last stayed at the Dunas in 2009 when we were burgled, we decided to return this June because it is in such a good location for the centre and the beautiful beach is a short walk away. The only downside was that our apartment was above the Chill Out bar, which proved to be a little noisy in the... More

My wife and myself have been staying at the dunas for about ten years, we love alvor sadly it is under new management. As most people have said most of the rooms are clean and tidy. The pool area and surrounding walking areas have taken a bit of a dive with bird droppings everywhere, drink stains ,cigarette ends , in... More

We've been going to Dunas for a number of years and were aware some changes had been made to the pool use. You now get a fob to unlock the two gates to enter the pool area. There are now "lifeguards" - two rather sullen young men worked most of our stay who, give them their due, will bring mats... More
