Inside is dirty, dark, old fashioned and damaged. The room where we stayed was terrible and worse than the 2 hour dealt. However the outside and pool area was amazing. Would definitely recommend going to the pic nic bar. Additionally the hotel is near a lovely town.

The Dunas from the outside looks great. Pity same couldn't be said for the inside. Our apartment was very spacious but very dated. Curtains had holes in them. Toilet seat was loose. The bottom of the toilet was dirty. Cushions on the sofa bed were dirty. The sofa bed was hard and very uncomfortable. A hob but no oven. One... More

Our apartment was spotlessly clean and tidy. The rooms were large and can easily hold 4 people. We had all the appliances we wanted. They are perfectly located near to Alvor centre which has amazing restaurants and bars. The pool area is very large with a large grass area to sun bathe on. We will definitely return.

Stayed here for a week at beginning of May with my husband. I'd been with a friend years ago and had always wanted to return. We were worried being self-catering that we might spend a lot of euros eating and drinking out but we couldn't have been more wrong. We had a large clean spacious apartment which we couldn't fault.... More
