5 out of 5
The Dunas resort is divided in two, SOL Dunas and MELIA Dunas. We stayed on Melia side - which was more adult/couple suitable and the Sol side more family or younger family orientated. The complex was clean and well kept. The pools and facilities (such as communal toilets) were spotless. Our room was large and clean, with fridge and good air conditioning, there was also kettle and hairdryer and a free to use safe for valuables. The food buffet was great and we loved having 4 restaurants to book for dinner if we wanted something more formal. There are also many bars to grab that late night drink or nightcap ! The Gabi beach bar and the beachcomber bar provided drinks at the beach and there were swim up pool bars for refreshments (drinks) poolside! Drinks really were all inclusive- spirits(local but extensive) wine, beer, cava, Prosecco, and cocktails- we had zero addition spend! The only downside is the 6 hour layover in Lisbon outward , but we survived! We will definitely be going back!
