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. It caters for the high level of expectancy you would expect from a 5 star resort, the staff are mature and experienced and the menu choice probably the widest on the beach. Last...

Tucked right over the sand dunes in a vacation oasis in Almacil. Large villas with ocean view and a full service pool and restaurant complex. Great food with first rate service. We used Dunas Doradas a 2 day chance to decompress before heading back to the U.S.

Dear guest, Thank you so much for your great review. Dunas Douradas Beach Club is set in a privileged beach front location, most luxury apartments and villas boast incredible panoramic sea views and are all just a stroll away from the wonderful beach!

Been here for lunch before - never disappoints. The 'new' Portuguese steak is fab! And the sautéed potatoes to die for, we'll be back. Clean and friendly - not one to miss on your travels. The garlic prawn starter was amazing too.

Just back from a fantastic holiday at Dunas Douradas with our young family. The resort is beautiful and has been thoughtfully designed and equipped. I think the architects, owners and staff deserve much credit for this as they seem to have considered everything a guest would need. This might not be the place for teenage children or those looking for...
