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

I liked it, can't say it's excellent but it was good value for what I paid. The pool is very nice and big, with a smaller one for the kids. The apartment was good enough, it could be improved in a few things like installing a smoke extractor for the stove and improving window blackouts. Also, cleaning wasn't bad but... More

The apartment is roomy with a large living area with a well equipped kitchen including a bottle of wine in the fridge !! The bedroom has... More

The cleaners supplied clean towels, & emptied bins daily, it was spacious, plenty of wardrobe space & drawers, loads of coat hangers too! Hope to return again &... More

Our trip in May was the fifth time at this complex in six years, says a lot. We go with Thomson. Its quite a big place with four bars that do snacks and a recently re-opened restaurant (Albur's)for more formal meals. The bars have got crazy happy-hour prices of a pint of lager for a Euro and that's for up... More

The location is exactly what we needed as my husband is unable to walk very far. A quick 5 minute walk and you are in alvor, 10 minutes in the... More

I have been coming here for 20 years and I just love the place. It is always clean, with very polite staff. It is near the lovely resort of Alvor. The beech is a short walk as are the shops. It is quiet and not over run with nightclubs and bars as other resorts are. There is plenty to do... More
