“Amazing hotel and location - quiet and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2011

We have been to this complex twice in the same year - FEB 2011 and MAY 2011 - we have stayed in both the townhouses and the apartment/flats and both were amazing!!

The townhouses are excellent; clean, modern, spacious and they have a back garden with a pool! it was brilliant!! ... but it was luxury and to be honest you have everything you could need in the apartments which are also very spacious modern and clean and they have a kitchen area as well as TV/living area, dining table and a bedroom with en suite.

If we went again we would definitely go for the apartment, because it really is all you need - unless you fancy the luxury of the townhouse or you have a family - we were there as a couple so the townhouse was much bigger than we needed. There is garaged parking for both.

The resort it self is great, really quiet and peaceful - hardly saw many other people there - there were good tennis courts, but the best part was how close we were to the beach - there was a perfect wooden walkway right from the hotel down to the beach front, the beach is beautiful - very quiet and lovely sand and the sea is the best - lovely clear frothy water.

We went to the gym one day and that was nice - we didn't really eat in the restaurants/bars because you have a kitchen in the rooms/houses and there is a supermarket on site (called ocean) so we just brought our food from there.

The service at the reception was brilliant - staff were great and very helpful and spoke good english. Overall we had an amazing time. If you hire a car I would recommend driving to a cinema/shopping complex about 10 minutes away off the main road - it had all sorts of shops/restaurants there and we wish we found it sooner in our holiday.

Good accommodation, well equipt with washer/dryer and dishwasher. The supermarket next to resort was well stocked. The biggest negative was that although it was 28degrees and there were quite a few people by the pools everything seemed to shut down. From the 1st October the reception closed and we had to use the hotel next doors, the only one bar (not in the hotel itself) called the liquid lounge, a lovely rooftop bar - closed for the 'winter', the pool bar - the only place to get a drink and your pool towels, closed down the beginning of October for the winter! This meant walking to another hotel pool bar to get your towels to then walk back to your hotel pool! About 30 min round trip twice a day! There was only one restaurant in the resort open called mama Mia open for lunch and dinner and during our stay they shut the lunchtime service down for the winter! As the resort is so quite it just seemed mad to shut down the only small facilities they did have!!! Not 5 star service walking about a mile to get a towel! They don't tell you before either that these things will be closed for the 'winter' which is so frustrating.

We went there just for the long weekend break. The self catering apartment where we stayed was fabulous with lots of pools around. The beach was mere 5 mins walk and was quiet and clean. The breakfast was elaborate and had a wide spread of continental and full English breakfast. The only drawback was the buffet dinner. It was disappointing as didn't have enough choices, many dishes were salty n it was not vale for money at€25 per head.
Otherwise it was a great resort.

Booked a 3 bedroom apartment and it was great, specially for the ones travelling with family and with babies!The apartment was spacious, clean and with 3 bathrooms. Full kitchen, with several appliances. Daily cleaning. The resort itself is beautiful, with several outdoor pools - including a kids pool which our 6 month old loved!!Nice equiped gym - free of charge - as well as some classes, and indoor pool. Nice bar to have a drink by night at the reception building. You also find a mini market, and a nice and surprisingly cheap supermarket at about 150m from the resort. At a nice walking distance you'll have a fantastic beach-about 8minutes walking.Wifi area at the reception and at the pool area - this can be improved maybe. And if you are taking a baby, you can take your stroller to the beach easily and just leave it at the entrance of the beach! The staff is very nice and helpful. Loved it!

Spacious apartments with all the commodities we need for a family break.

I agree with previous reviews that say these are not 5 stars amenities, but I find it has a good price/quality balance.

Location is great, you can walk to the beach even with small kids (200m), lots of swimming pools (some only for small children), plenty of options for eating out.

I will be back !

My wife and I were checked in in a 2 bedroom apartment for a 9 days stay in July. The apartment was very spacious, with full kitchen, very clean but otherwise a bit basic. The mattresses were very hard. In all: more 4 stars level but daily serviced which is nice.
The park itself is very nice, with many pools, sun beds and umbrella's. You can get clean towels at the pool. Also at 5 minutes walking distance to a very nice beach, which is just beautiful. The gardens well maintained. The staff were very friendly and always taking time to help us. We would rate the park itself at 5 stars.
We have tried the buffets in the Dunas hotel, which was good value for the money although the barbecue buffet was disappointing because of cold meat being served. You can have a fresh espresso for just €0,50 in the coffee bar just outside the park where you will find a well sorted supermarket.
You need a car to get somewhere, because it is outside of Albufeira which was fine for us. We did the Blackrunner boat trip and saw dolphins and beautiful caves of the Algarve coast. A great experience!

We didn't like de cleaning, the materials of the apartments where not 5 star, in fact they were very poor. The amenities provided are very, very bad.
The location is very good.
The service is very bad.
