Just returned from a week at Dunas with my wife. Apartment was very spacious although furniture was basic. Maids kept the rooms and communal areas immaculate at all times. The pool area was excellent for relaxing and fernandos snack bar was ideal for an ice cold super bock while keeping out the afternoon sun, its literally right next to the... More

Last year we decided to spend our first holiday in Portugal. We stayed at the "Dunas Do Alvor" , Alvor, Algarve. What a great choice we made. And talking about choice, we strongly recommend a transfer company we used for the first time (and won’t be last) called alvortransfers , com, easy to book on line, great value for money,... More

We stayed at the Dunas do Alvor last October, my husband and i came back to this beautiful village, still untouched by high rise and mass tourism as such, after 16 years! And for this occasion we decided to take our 16 years old daughter and a friend of hers, and Dunas do Alvor was the right choice for us.... More

We stayed at the Dunas Do Alvor for 2 weeks in August 2010 and had a fabulous time. The location of this Hotel is fantastic, close to Alvor Beach, Pubs, Bars and Restaurants. The complex is of a good size and standard. Well kept, clean and tidy. The rooms are of a very good size with plenty of wardrobe space... More

The apartment complex is kept clean, has a mini-supermarket and good choice of snackbars. The apartments are generally clean and regularly serviced during the stay, though the furniture is basic. The staff will try to help where they can and the maids are always polite.The complex is well situated for the village itself and if you fancy a short walk... More

Good location on the edge of Alvor but within reasonable walking distance to the town, either left along the sea front (short piece of waste ground to cross) or right and up a steepish hill. Takes about 10 to 15 mins depending on your pace. Reception quite friendly and talk good English. Room sizes were quite large. Include usual self... More

The reception was friendly and helpful. The weather wasn’t too good and there was no heating in any of the apartments so the second night the receptionist brought up a space heater for us to use during our stay even though we hadn’t complained or asked. A rare treat in this day and age. The rooms were spacious with a... More
