The Dunas has large apartments and an excellent pool area with just enough beds when we were there. Inside the fitments are old and they need a bit of TLC to get them up to modern standards. My main problem was that there is no air conditioning and, while I accept I should have noticed when I booked, I just...

This is a large complex of apartments, located near the centre of Alvor, with lots of restaurants, bars and allkind of shops, and this is good. It is (or can be) within a walking distance to the beach (10-15 minutes walking), which is also good. The apartments are quite large and clean, well equiped, although everything is very simple. On...

We were able to check in earlier than expected which was very convenient. The apartment was lovely – spacious and very clean. We had stayed in Dunas several times before (in the Thomson owned apartments) but this one (owned by Torralvor) had extras including a washing machine, tall floor fan, iron and ironing board, soft fluffy towels, a safe (at...

The complex is very good within easy walking distance to the beach or town centre or harbour area. The apartment has all you need for a self catering holiday. There is even a laundry on site. The Reception area is always clean and the staff are very friendly and will try to help with all manner of enquiries. The living...

After reading mixed reviews, I was a little hesitant about our stay at Dunas do Alvor but I had nothing to worry about. We booked through booking.com - Torralvor. Our flight was delayed but Miguel and Sara accommodated us with a late check-in with no problems at all. We were greeted in the apartment with a bottle of rose wine...

We returned last week from a one week stay in the Dunas Do Alvor. The apartment we had was spacious and well equipped on the whole. A large fridge freezer, oven and proper hob if you wished to cook, which we didn't. A kettle that seemed to smell of burning was a little disconcerting. We were in room 101 in...

Apartments are a good size, we had loads of room but it is all a bit dated and only one very lumpy pillow each. Bathroom, again, good size, but dated and the loo seat didn't fit properly. No patio furniture at all, a table , but no chairs? Not enough sun loungers around the pool area, which is a great...

We have just returned from 11 nights at the Dunas with 2 teenage boys. We had an absolutely great holiday and the boys want to go back next year. Our apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable. Basic kitchen with microwave, fridge freezer, kettle, toaster and hob, but certainly good enough if you would like to self cater. A safe is...

Whilst our apartment was spacious and generally clean, there was an awful smell coming from the bedroom which we quickly worked out was the mattress - it absolutely stank, but despite numerous requests at reception, this was not changed during the whole duration of our two week stay and my husband had to sleep on a pile of sheets, which...
