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

I am so sorry to be writing this review after the review I gave it last year. This was our third visit to the hotel. The room was clean and tidy much like last year however this year we had visitors in the form of huge cockroaches which appeared to live in the bathroom. I reported this to the reception... More

We stayed at these apartments for a week at the beginning of June. We had stayed there about 6 or 7 years ago and found the apartments, once again , to be ideal for our needs. The apartments are quite spacious and have everything you need for a self catering holiday. They are about a 5 minute walk to the... More

A great location 5 minutes to town with many good restaurants. Only 10 minutes to a wonderful beach with plenty beach bars. The hotel itself basic,clean and tidy. Our room was opposite a bar which was slightly noisy at night. The pool is a good size with plenty of sunbeds. Overall enjoyed our holiday.

Great location and central to beach and town alike. Beautiful restaurants within a five minute walk. Plenty of bars on your doorstep too. Will definitely return to Dunas do Alvor as the pool is also superb and has lots of space.

We stayed at Dunas in October 2014 and were so impressed with our holiday as a whole we re-booked to return in June 2015. The Dunas apartments are great value and, whilst they could not be described as luxurious, they are very spacious and comfortable. Kitchen facilities are good and included a washing machine this time although we did not... More

We just returned from our hols lovely spacious apartments, and perfect area near beach, food choices and more, however I do feel I should warn families of a man who drinks at the apartments throughout the day and night, we were involved in an incident on our 2nd night, our two young daughters were playing pretty quietly at the bar...

Recently spent a week in these apartments in Alvor. Found them to be spotlessly clean and in an excellent location. Was quite at night but a lot of traffic early in the morning. With a school across the road. Staff were excellent and very helpful. Mentioned that the door at the main entrance to the apartment block wasn't closing properly.... More

We spent ten days in the Dunas do Alvor Apartments and we were very pleased. These apartments are so spacious, clean and the staff are so friendly we could not have wanted for more. The pool is private and we needed a security token to access and exit which we were given by the Dunas do Alvor. They are about... More
