Just returned from DDBC following another fantastic holiday . The resort ticks all the boxes- location , quality , setting ,accommodation , child friendly etc .

We've stayed in a number of resorts and hotels along the Algarve and this wins hands down. The apartments are spacious, well kitted out and are kept immaculately clean - maids come in to clean and change towels daily. The pool area is lovely - always plenty of sunbeds, whatever time of day. In fact, it's the first time we've...

Just spent a glorious week at Dunas Douradas Beach Club. The house (three-bedroomed ground floor) was truly amazing, from the outdoor kitchen to the hot tub to the fully equipped kitchen.

It's half term at the Beach Club and the staff are raring to go for another busy season. Without doubt the club restaurant, Albatroz, takes some beating.
