We have just returned from a fantastic week of rest and relaxation at Dunas Douradas beach club resort. Everything was perfect, apartment, surroundings, pools and beach. We have eventually found the resort that ticks all our boxes, can't wait for our next trip!

Stayed: May 2012, travelled with family

We have just been back for another week and have to say we were not dissapointed. There was hardly anyone there this week but it really didnt matter. The staff were very friendly nothing is ever too much trouble. The place is immaculate and the apartments are just beautiful. I highly recommend the restaurant too.

My only gripe is the plastic sheet covering on the matress - it made sleeping uncomfortable.

Just wish I was wealthly enough to own one!!

Linda

Room Tip: we have stayed in Vista and Laguoa - laguoa is nearer the club house. Nowhere is more than a 5 min walk to the the club house though.

We spent two nights in Dunas Douradas with our daughter and son in law and our son. The five of us were overwhelmed with our condo. Beautifully decorated, well equipped with everything you could possibly need to spend and excellent and relaxing vacation.
The pools, gym, and beach were all 5 star. The food and service at the restaurant in the resort was excellent.
We will definitely be back and recomend it highly to anyone looking for a relaxing, laid back family oriented luxuxious vacation!

We had a family holiday at DDBC during half term (23-29 Oct 2011) - my wife has been here with her girly friends before and we returned with 2 young kids (5 & 2). The resort is very well laid out with a 'village' feel to it with 3 outdoor pools (cold later in the year) and 1 indoor pool. our kids spent most of the time in the indoor pool. DDBC pretty much has everything you need onsite, small shop, restaurant, bar, gym, sauna and easy beach access. The appartments are spacious with excellent cooking facilities (utensils, bbq, oven & dishwasher) and all seem to have sea view (Wifi was the cherry on the cake!).

The resort is safe and secure with all residents getting access with a security card, which serves as payment for drinks, food and even in the shop - so no real need for Euros or even a car. We rented a car for 3 days to get out and about to visit the local towns (Albufeira). The beach is a 3 minute walk from the furthes apparment onsite and has a few local restaurants (Marias, Julias etc) within a 10 minute beach walk. We'd recommend trying the african rice at Julias!

The appartments are serviced daily and are spotless - they even heat up the hot tub on the roof terrace, ready for your return at the end of the day. All in all, I would recommend this resort to anyone who fancies a bit of quality relaxation holiday time.

Room Tip: Rooms at the top of the resort with a sea view and hot tub are a must.

We had a lovely relaxing holiday here, it had everything we needed close to hand and we're thinking about going back again soon.

Dunas Douradas Beach club is located between Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago and is about a 25 minute drive from Faro Airport. It is a lovely complex, well looked after, secure and right next to the beach.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom ground floor apartment with jacuzzi and BBQ and a great view out to sea. It was stylishly decorated and had a fully fitted kitchen with all appliances and every utensil known to man! (Dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, dryer included). There was also a burglar alarm with code supplied and air-con. The sound proofing was fantastic, despite being nearish to the airport (which my son loved and does not bother you as much as you may think it would) you could not hear the planes at all with the doors shut, and in fact the only noise we heard all week were some numpties next door who thought it was OK to whoop and play their music in the jacuzzi at 2.30 am, they kindly stopped when it was pointed out to them that it was perhaps a bit loud, but don't worry about that for your holiday, we were just unlucky.

The maid service was great with a spotless apartment every day, they even cleaned the BBQ after we used it, and the grounds were always being tended.

We ate at the resturant almost every day, it was so easy with the kids to just have lunch or dinner there. The menu had something for everyone and a great selection for the kids, lots of high chairs and very attentive waiters. The prices were very reasonable and you can get take out to eat in your apartment if you like.
The pools were great (2 large, one kids, one jacuzzi, one indoor) and the indoor pool was lovely and cosy for those days when it was just a tad chilly for the outdoor pools. we only saw sunloungers reserved once and that was not needed at all as there were plenty to go around.
Our only gripe was that there was no pool service, no-one ever came to ask us if we wanted anything and the pool area wasnt clean enough with dishes and glasses being left all day on occasion. This may have been because it was low season and they appeared to be a tad understaffed but still, that's no excuse. It was easy enough to pop up to the bar to order drinks, snacks or ice-creams but there was usually a wait for that too.
The gym looked fantastic and had good classes on every day. I had a spa treatment and it was the best pedicure I have ever had.
The shop has all your essentials and Apolonia in Almancil has everything else. It's only a 10 minute drive to Almancil although you can pay to take the bus laid on by the resort to do a shop there.
The access to the beach is via a gate on which you use your room key, its not a private beach as such but the area is reserved with loungers, lifeguards etc for residents. You can also walk along to Vale do Lobo should you wish.

We found all the staff to be very friendly helpful and responsive.
All in all this is a really lovely place to come with family (or anyone really) luxurious and relaxing I really do recommend it.

Room Tip: I'd say that anywhere there would be lovely.
