We spent a week at Hotel Dunas de Sal, early Dec. Some reviews under this hotel appear to refer to the Sol Dunas, which is a different and much bigger hotel, so read reviews carefully! Dunas de Sal has one restaurant and one bar and one pool. We had a standard room on ground floo

Great location. Minutes from a quiet beach and 15 minute walk into Santa Maria. Much nicer than the spoilt all inclusive at Riu palace , further along beach. We only ate breakfast , which was fine. Staff fairly friendly , if somewhat reserved.

Small but clean hotel near the beach. I would not say it’s 4 stars hotel but it was ok. Pool is small so we usually went to the beach for sunbathing and swimming. Room was a bit too simple, there was actually nothing else than a bed and a table. It was very noisy too as it was on

The hotel is close to the city center of Santa Maria. When you walk about 200 meters, you enter the beach with private beds. The hotel itself is clean, there are enough facilities and the staff is very friendly. Our room was located on the ground floor, so we could walk to the po

Hi, I understand there is a shop nearby that sells bottled water can you please tell me what else it sells thank you
Hi, There's several small shops where you can buy groceries, people do live in the area albeit mainly devoted to the tourism, prices will vary from place to place so for example in the city of Espargos where the airport is, prices are lower, near the hotels at Santa Maria, for obvious reasons prices are higher. Still, all is cheaper than anything in Europe. Enjoy the good restaurant offer as well.

Two questions please; (1) We will be staying at the Dunas de Sal in December and we have booked 'bed and breakfast'. Will we be able to use all the hotel restaurants during our stay and charge teh costs to our room ?; (2) what currency is best used for buying drinks at the bar ?
Dear Destination160945, Thank you for your kind message and preference. It will be pleasure to have you with us in December. :) Regarding all your questions, I couldn't reply you any better that Mrs Luis M just did. Thank you dear. Hope to see you both of you very soon and in case you need any further information feel free to contact us anytime. The team HOTEL DUNAS DE SAL

Looking forward to staying next week. Are there tea/coffee making facilities in room or do we need to bring a travel kettle? What type of electric sockets are used?
Dear GMK10, Thank you for your kind preference. All our Superior rooms, Junior and Master Suite have a tea/coffee making in room facilities and which are refiled every day for free. Not the Standard rooms though. The sockets as Mr Luis M informed are Europeans but can request adapters at the Front Desk which can be borrowed upon availability. If you have any further question or need any other information about Hotel DUnas de Sal or the destination feel free to contact us directly on geral- at- hoteldunasdesal - com Kindest regards from Sal and looking forward to welcome you soon, The team HOTEL DUNAS DE SAL

"I recommend a room on the ground floor"
"Familie should go for Junior Suite"
"Second floor 201 - 212"
"higher floors are best if lifts are working as they have less a/c unit noise"
"The room we had, a junior-suite, absolutely perfect with a glimpse of the Atlantic from our balcony. We would have enjoyed the balcony even more with a chair like a recliner."
