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 apt. as the kids and we were very tired. The apt is very well equipped! we had a unit with 3 bedrooms, ground floor, with jacuzzi and sea view. (nr 27). It was excellent! Beds were comfortable, loved the veranda with bbq and the space. The restaurants at the beach are great options. We tried jills, Monica's (not at the beach - but one of the best experiences!) and the one on the right side of the restaurant at the beach (forgot the name). We have already planned our return for next year!

Room tip: Unit 27 close to the main building and pools, sea view, jacuzzi (3 bd, ground floor), enough space in and out for the kids. Good furniture!

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 the outdoor pools are immaculately clean and a perfect temperature. We stay in the bigger properties and they are always immaculately clean and well appointed; with free wifi, a great kitchen, washing machine, bbq, outside entertaining area, loads of towels, etc. Everything you need to live very comfortably. There is almost no traffic, 24 hour security, and the beach is on the doorstep (so is Maria's - a wonderful beach restaurant with food to-die-for). The area outside the club is fantastic for eating, drinking, golf, and shopping. Whilst a car is preferable, Val de lobo is a short drive (and you can actually walk there along the beach - takes about 20 minutes) and so is Quinta do lago. The local taxi firms are good and the supermarkets in Val do lobo, Quinta, and Almacil have lots of fresh produce.
The staff at the club are the real stars of the show. They are all friendly, professional, and courteous. Some have been there for years and years and remember your name. It's like home. The Club should be very proud of the service and attention to detail and the food in the restaurant is highly recommended.
If I have any criticism, it is the prices and stock in the resort deli/shop. It is very expensive for basic items like 'swim nappies', sun creams, etc. There is a kids club on site but our kids are bit too old for it now - they have thoroughly enjoyed their time there in the past.

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.
