“Basic clean accommodation in great location”
Reviewed August 6, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed in Dunas last week when visiting Alvor for a wedding. They were good spacious clean apartments in a good location ( 5min one way to the beach and 5 min the other to town). Was a proper big kitchen not just a kitchenette like in other apartments. Had a lovely big pool area. Beds were limited sometimes as people hogged them with their towels but there was plenty of green areas to throw yourself down under the trees.

The apartments were perfect for our stay and would definitely return and recommend them. the only two issues I would have are - 1 there is no air con in them (but they did have a fan in them which worked out good in the end!) and 2 - they appear to be run by a management company (if booked through Toralvor). They work out of a small office downstairs that has limited opening hours. You are given details for 24 hour contact so it works out fine but just don't expect the usual big reception area that you would go through.

overall good clean apartments, good value for money and great location.

“Spotless, well equipped, friendly and happy to help any time.”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The apartment was well equipped and even had a washing machine which came in very handy. The rooms were spotless and very spacious meaning you were not under each others feet and it even had a big balcony which was a bonus. There was no air conditioning but they were a stand up fan and we were evening given an extra one upon request. Very happy and certainly will be booking a return visit.

“Excellent location, large room, very clean”

Excellent location 10 mins to town center and 10 mins other direction to beach. Large one bed apart with double pull out bed in open plan living room/kitchen. Small but adequate balcony. Check in staff very friendly and helpful. We always went to the beach but one could see, loungers around the pool were in short supply. Good bars in the complexx but head up town when eating out.

“Perfect !!!”

We have stayed here many times, but this was the first time we stopped with Torralvor. Everything was spot on. Loads of clean towels and sheets left for us, a bottle of wine to welcome us on our arrival and a spotless apartment that provided everything required for a great holiday. The location is perfect, with several bars serving great food and drink.A great complex that is ideally positioned both for the village and the beach. In my opinion, having stayed elsewhere, these apartments definitely have the based pool area. there's plenty of room and a 10 yard work to grab some food or drink. I would highly recommend these apartments.

“beautiful appartments very modern & spacious”

I had a lovely time at dunas de alvor, the appartments were fabulous best ive ever stayed in anywhere, very well eqipped & everything spotless, i found it very safe, very well kept gardens, & a lovely atmosphere around the complex, we ate very cheaply in The Chillout Bar & bar picnic which is the pool side bar, & had many a cheap nites drinking in the chillout bar where most of their drinks are €1, this is situated in the dunas complex. Overall we had a fab time we had 2 daughters with us age 15 & 12 & they loved it too. We travelled with 4 other families & had a few teenagers & young kids between us all, our only complaint was the sunlounger situation, every morning at 9am the pool attendent would open the gate to let people reserve their sun beds for the day, as a large group of us were together 1 from each family would reserve the beds for their family, & by 11 the pool attendant would start to get annoyed with us if they wernt down at the pool by then & proceed to remove our towels to give the beds to people who were only just coming down at that time, this was very frustrating to us as we had set alarms to get those beds, & when we did come down we stayed there for the day we spent plenty of money between all the bars & the onsite supermarket. I feel that this needs to be addressed with him for future times as he would see us there all day, we would never reserve sun beds & go off for the day & not use them, if we were a bit late coming down it was because kids were tired & we feel that 11am is not too late to be getting up out of bed when on holidays, i hope when we return next year that this will be sorted & they will have more sunloungers available as there was plenty of space around the pool to put more in, apart from that situation we had a fab time & will definatly come back next year & highly recomend this complex to more friends, thanks to Miguel in Torralvor
