Hotel's Favourite
I was looking at the Travel Award results and saw Dunas Douradas was considered the World's Best Golf & Villa Resort, so I booked to stay for four nights in early December, a 3 bedroom ground floor apartment with jacuzzi. Despite the cold, I did enjoy my stay: the jacuzzi was perfect, we could take long walks to the nearby beaches, and enjoy the indoor pool in total privacy (just our family). The apartments are quite impressive and the terraces are huge. They had a mini market with fresh bred and croissants that was very handy. A larger supermarket was walking distance to the resort. A very good experience, so much so I booked again for September 2021. My only complaint - duly noted at the time - was that all our bathing suits were damaged in the indoor pool (colors faded as I had never seen), but they took care of the issue promptly. This resort offers a level of privacy and proximity to the beach that is simply perfect, specially during a pandemic. Service, cleaning and Wifi were top notch. We also tried the Restaurant Saudade, and enjoyed the food and service. The only thing I found to be worth improving is the booking system of Dunas Douradas site, nothing more!

We stayed one week at this resort and absolutely loved it. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! The apartment we had (2 bedroom, 2 bathroom) was extremly big, well equipped and comfortable! We felt completely safe and secure as all COVID precausions were there but didn't negatively impact our stay. The beach is just lovely and is a few minutes walk away. We will definitely come back once the whole COVID-drama is over as we would still like to experience the resort to the fullest without any restrictions :)

My girlfriend and I arrived here for our wedding in September. From the day we arrived to the day we left as a married couple all the staff we encountered were absolutely amazing. A few special mentions for Claudia, Detmar, Paulo, Joana and Augusto who made everything that little bit more special. The day was well orchestrated and everything was perfect for us. The property and amenities are well maintained and of a high standard. Their restaurant Saudade is very pleasant and the food is top quality. It is also far better than local restaurants close by! There is a massive beach that is accessible from the resort. In the accommodation you will find everything that you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Some apartments have jacuzzis and all have barbecues on the patio. We will definitely return to the stunning Dunas Douradas!

It’s the second time at the resort out of peak times and both times have been great. House in great conditions and with an excellent service (housekeeping, Wi-Fi assist almost immediately) and overall helpful staff. On the swimming pool I would like to thank specially Mr Augusto Silva who was truly kind with our children and always ready to help! Clearly to be distinguished. Thank you

Absolutely fantastic resort. The quality and comfort levels of the condominiums is amongst the best I have ever seen. The staff were all very friendly, the facilities top notch and the food in the restaurant was very good at reasonable prices.
