We stayed here with 2 of our grown up children and found the place excellent, the apartment was large clean and well positioned and equipped, the hot tub was a great success and made the break. We will definitely consider returning and would recommend the resort

This was our stop off on the way back to our accommodation not at the Beach Club. We had superb cocktails and ice cream. Outside comfortable chairs and friendly staff. One night there was a lounge singer which was good too.

We spent about 5 nights at this resort last April '16. It was off-season, so the hotel was not full. It was very peaceful and relax. Our kids loved the heated swimming pool inside with the jacuzzi. Breakfast was not buffet style - so you order from a menu. The first night we ordered food and had delivered at the... More

We've stayed here every year for the last 6 years and Dunas is simply perfect. The kids love the estate, the pools, and the beach and we do too. The estate has four pools around the central 'club' and the baby pool is graded so the toddlers can waddle in and out. The indoor pool is lovely and warm and... More

Have stayed annually at the Beach Club since it opened, the apartments and facilities are still as a spotless and well maintained as they were on our initial visit. First Class Accommodation, First Class Service. Just perfect, wonderful pool area, easy access to the beach, safe and secure - all the right ingredients for a memorable family holiday.

Beautiful resort, clean, friendly staff, lovely restaurant and wonderful location. You are right on the beach next to Maria's (wonderful food and live music on a Sunday) and down the boardwalk are 4/5 lovely beach bars (personally recommend Julias and Izzys).
