The apartment is very spacious and just needs a lick of paint, general TLC to make it perfect once again. Staff throughout the complex are really friendly and very quick to offer help. The pool is fantastic and extremely well looked after. If you have Children on holiday with you then look out because they will never want to leave... More

The apartment was very clean & very spacious. It was fairly well-equipped, although looking a little tired. It was serviced almost every day. We were in Block A & the outside entrance door was an absolute pain to get into to - it really needs a new lock. There are bars, a small but well stocked supermarket & restaurants within... More

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...

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
