Overall the apartment was excellent. It was big, bright and very clean. The pool is big and the surrounding area is well... More

Gripes were only 3 chairs at the table a mis-match of crockery including only 3 cereal bowls, a fridge that didn't get very cold, smelly towels and bedding and some lights... More

Just returned from a great week at the Dunas. There are some pictures of great apartments featured on both TripAdvisor and Thomson websites. However, I have to say our apartment, although very spacious and clean was very dated, with kitchen cupboard and oven doors that did not close, and a bathroom that could do with updating. Having said that, it... More

We had an apartment just above reception and a couple of times it got a bit noisy outside. Despite the Portugese Police being really strict about the bars on the complex keeping their doors shut and finishing... More

Whilst not the prettiest view in the world, it was ok & after checking in, we were pleased to find a balcony off of our lounge/diner. We then checked the bedroom & found... More

Just back from the dunas apartments and what a lovely place to stay. The apartments were very clean and spacious and had everything that we required. The oven was very good with a grill and 4 ceramic hobs. You had to look carefully at the dials on the oven to get the grill to work but it was first class.... More
