We had a great time at Dunas do Alvor apartments. We stayed from the 6th-20th August, in a one bedroom apartment over looking the pool, with two large terraces above Marco's. I don't know why people are saying that towels were left over night, on sun beds (that wouldn't be allowed) or that people were queuing from 8:30 to get... More

Fantastic place. We had all the facilities right on our doorstep, from an underground private car park to our own washing machine in our room!! There was a very simple pool which wasn't too overcrowded, secure for the children, always clean and manned by a lifeguard. In the evening there are a couple of bars on the complex and they... More

We had a very nice holiday at this hotel. The reception was prepared nicely for our arrival and the rooms were ready and clean and fresh. The room had no air-conditioning but we didn't mind this too much as the heat wasn't over bearing. We paid for a safe for our more expensive items and the rooms were very secure... More

Just returned from 2 weeks holiday in Alvor, staying at Dunas.To sum up, Alvor is brilliant, Dunas location is brilliant, but the accommodation falls slightly short of standard on a few factors. We booked through Thomson, so the following may not be applicable from all renters. Safety deposit box rental at 20 euro per week is extortionate, balconies are not... More

Our family of 5 just back from our first stay at the Dunas and Alvor, and have to say was pleasantly surprised. Was a little apprehensive about going due to reviews about break-ins and cleanliness. Have to be honest didn't risk using safety deposit box, but was very impressed with our rooms. We paid for 2 one bed apartments with... More

We stayed here in 2013 would never ever go back. Apartments lovely and clean but they are apartments not a holiday resort. No kids club, no entertainment bar the one man karaoke every night with the same songs. No snack bar or anything you'd expect to see. Loads of naked old ladies sunbathing. Not for children at all! Location is... More

Stayed in a private apartment on the Dunas after having such a great time in Alvor last year and loved the place. The Apartment was very spacious and spotlessly clean. The swimming pool was huge with lots of sun beds and parasols. There is also a mini market on site for all your essentials. Marcos and the Pic nice snack... More

We returned to beautiful Alvor and yet again had a fantastic holiday. We stayed at the Dunas for the first time and were a bit apprehensive having read reviews after we booked a private apartment. Our apartment was well equipped, clean and bright. The swimming pool was fantastic - much bigger than where we stayed before and, together with location,... More

The complex is in a great location very handy for the beach and town. However the apartments and complex could do with some TLC. We stayed in a Thomson one bedroom apartment. It was very spacious had a fridge freezer, microwave and electric hob with 4 rings and a toaster. However there was a lack of utensils eg no chopping... More

We stayed in a spacious, comfortable one bedroom apartment (2 adults, 2 teenagers) that had two huge roof top terraces. Yes, the apartments are basic but have everything that you need. Great location, close to the fabulous beach and town which had a lovely atmosphere and plenty of restaurants. There are snack bars on site that do both cheap food... More
