Simple but comfortable holiday home. My friends and I enjoyed a few days in Formentera. Lovely location in a pine forest. Well laid out living space, lovely terrace, loungers, the smell of pine and the birds singing and then a 5 minute stroll to a wonderful beach, with a popular chiringuito. Just perfect and reasonably priced too.

We stayed here for 5 nights. At less than 100 euros per night, we expected something with a few downsides but it was superb. We were given the apartment at the bottom of the hill literally 40 metres from the beautiful beach which also has a beachside bar that does a sensational mohito. The room wasn't modern or sophisticated (that's not why you come to the island) but it was spacious and clean with a good quality cot which our baby was very comfortable in. The mini-kitchen and bathroom were in excellent condition, interior decor was in traditional rustic island style, sofas perhaps could be upgraded but a very minor point. Plus we had cleaners come in halfway thru to do a full clean which is unusual. The front of house guy was very friendly and we dined at their restaurant one night which did a tasty and reasonably priced meal. They even have a small shop on site to buy some essentials. When you consider the cost of some beachside resorts on this incredible island, Las Dunas ranks as amazing value for money. My wife lived on the island for 4years so has seen most of the places to stay, and she was extremely impressed. We'll be looking to stay at Las Dunas every time we return here.

Simple but comfortable accommodation a few steps from a stunning beach with great restaurants and bars to walk to. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The photos don't do this place justice - it's much nicer when you get there. Lovely infinity pool. Great to hire bikes and cycle to local towns.

We stayed at Las Dunas Playa over a month ago and have not stopped raving about it to friends and family since. Frequent travellers, this has got to top our list for service - the staff went above and beyond to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

The apartment we stayed in was quirky and comfortable - spotlessly clean - and with a million dollar view of sparkling beach.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we felt more like the spoiled guests in a warm Spanish home than patrons of a hotel. The onsite store is stocked with all the produce and handy items you need at extremely reasonable prices (we looked forward to our daily jaunt for bread, cheese, tomatoes and ham/chorizo every morning) and just about the friendliest Shop Assistants you could hope to meet.

After spending a week travelling around the island (grab a Vespa for €28/day from reception and do the same thing!) we're certain this is the best physical location for a stay on Formentura. Simply walk down from your apartment to the Piratabus Bar, a stone's throw away on the beach, for a San Miguel and bright, fresh tapas.

We'll be back for sure!

Las Dunas Playa is the perfect place to stay in Formentera.
Secluded and with pristine views of the best beach in the island.
Low key with excellent food and very nice people helping with your every need, this is a great place to relax and enjoy life in paradise Formentera.

My girlfriend and I just came back from Formentera, where we stayed in Las Dunas Playa. From the first moment, we started to love this place and we will come back for sure.
We stayed in the studio, which was very near to the beach, so we could hear the sound of waves at night - very refreshing and just what we needed for the good sleep. Studio was fully equipped with all things we needed (kitchen with all necessary stuff, shower with enough room for two people, huge double bed), no luxury here, but very good quality for the price we paid.
Location is also very good, it is on the southern part of Migjorn beach, on border of "urban" - Es Arenals part and "rural" part of the beach with a very few objects on it and with no crowd. Regarding transport - best combination is to divide your staying in 3 equal parts - rent a moped for the northern and western beaches (Levant, Es Trucadors, Illetes, Cala Saona (if you really must go there)), rent a bicycle for the northern and middle part of Migjorn and Ses Platgetes) and walk on foot for the nearby parts of the Migjorn (Es Copinar, Es Arenals, Calo des Mort). When you walk to the beach from your room, if you go left you can find more people on the beach, easier entrance in the water and mostly family oriented people with small kids. On the right side is more deserted area, with more rocks, but with much more privacy and peace for you. We even succeeded to find a little cove just for two of us. If you are nudist, this part of Migjorn could be your favourite place on the whole island! And it is just 10 - 20 minutes walking from your apartment!
Nightlife is very poor here - you have two bars in the neighbourhood - Piratabus and Flipper&Chiller, music stops about 22h, but if you want crazy nightlife, you are on the wrong island!
Don't bring your fancy shoes; they will be full of sand all the time! Flip flops or sandals are all you need for the whole time staying here.
One more advice - don't miss morning swimming on the empty beach while sun rises. Coffee and breakfast can wait!

This is a very special place in a fantastic location. The owners are extremely friendly and our appartment overlooking the beach was very well thought out and comfortable. We had such a relaxing holiday and can't wait to go back.
