My husband and I and another couple stayed at Dunas for a week from 4th - 11th October. We had a two bedroom apartment overlooking the central plaza. The apartment was clean and very spacious. Television,safe,Washing machine,iron,hairdryer etc were provided and kitchen equipment was adequate and there were plenty of towels. Like some of the other reviewers I just presumed... More

I managed to get a last minute break with Thomson at the Dunas Do Alvor, and after a swift transfer we arrived to find a clean and spacious one bedroom apartment, which contained everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The apartments are located in the lower part of town, opposite a school and are a short walk from the... More

We booked through booking.com for a week; end Sept /beg Oct. Our biggest problem was finding the place! (Arrival by car and despite GPS which didn't show the apartments). There is no name-board outside; only Inside the reception area which is something that should be changed and would make a huge difference to people searching for the complex. We were... More

Spent 6 days at the end of September. This was my second visit and unfortunately was a different experience from my visit in May. We were unable to get the same apartment as previously and although the one we were given was next door, it was smaller with smaller balcony. The apartment was not as well kept with 2 broken... More

The Dunas has large apartments and an excellent pool area with just enough beds when we were there. Inside the fitments are old and they need a bit of TLC to get them up to modern standards. My main problem was that there is no air conditioning and, while I accept I should have noticed when I booked, I just... More

This is a large complex of apartments, located near the centre of Alvor, with lots of restaurants, bars and allkind of shops, and this is good. It is (or can be) within a walking distance to the beach (10-15 minutes walking), which is also good. The apartments are quite large and clean, well equiped, although everything is very simple. On...

We were able to check in earlier than expected which was very convenient. The apartment was lovely – spacious and very clean. We had stayed in Dunas several times before (in the Thomson owned apartments) but this one (owned by Torralvor) had extras including a washing machine, tall floor fan, iron and ironing board, soft fluffy towels, a safe (at...

The Reception area is always clean and the staff are very friendly and will try to help with all manner of enquiries. The living... More

After reading mixed reviews, I was a little hesitant about our stay at Dunas do Alvor but I had nothing to worry about. We booked through booking.com - Torralvor. Our flight was delayed but Miguel and Sara accommodated us with a late check-in with no problems at all. We were greeted in the apartment with a bottle of rose wine... More
