We spent 2 weeks at Fegan Villas near the Dunas Douradas Beach Club, located in Almancil, Portugal. The location is ideal, the cost was reasonable and we were a mere 10 minutes walk to the beaches. If you stay in a villa rather than a hotel in this area, you will need a rental car to pick up food and...

We had a 1 bedroom apartment which was enormous. Lovely big and well equipped kitchen. Large lounge, balcony and two bathrooms. Maids came each day and were really friendly and even did the washing up if needed. The resort was very quiet and so the bar and restaurant lacked atmosphere but the local restaurants were great. Walks along the beach...

I stayed here for 4 nights. I had a first floor 2 bedroom apartment with sea view- very spacious. It had two balconies and a private roof terrace. Kitchen had everything you would need. Having a washing machine and dryer was useful. Although it was Easter it was generally very quiet. Beds were comfy and slept like a log. The...

We stayed in what was termed a 5* 3 bed townhouse on the resort. However these are hit and miss as the one we had was up for sale and the owner had not invested in bringing the facility up to the levels you would expect a 2 week break costing £9,000 should have. The management were completely useless in...

Apollonia in Almancil is our favorite. I think the Dunas shuttle goes twice weekly. The Dunas shop is terrific for basics and for fresh bread and croissants. The Dunas restaurant is terrific and for something different go down the beach: Maria's right in front of Dunas; Julia's a walk to the left; and just past Julia's we think Antonio's has the best fish on the beach. Antonio's doesnt have a kids menu but our daughter gets grilled chicken without piri piri sauce.

Hi.

You can play tennis everyday but would be better to book in advance. The cost is 32€ per hour including tennis racquets.

Hi Chris

We originally owned an apartment in Dunas Douradas, but now we have one in the Beach Club

They are both separate entities, next to each other.

The town House in Dunas Douradas would have use of the lovely communal roman style pool there by the reception.

They have a small shop and a Bar and a lovely restaurant open to non residents called 'Xenias' which puts on different things in the evening, i.e. Live music, BBQ etc it is approx a 10 min walk to the beach, where you will also find 5 restaurant s

Dunas Douradas beach club is a gated development of 1,2 & 3 bedroom apartments and a few villas with 24hour security. The bar and restaurant are open to non residents but the 3 pools outside and 1 inside are only for owners and guests, there is also a gym.

It is also a minute walk from the beach which has Maria's restaurant and is also used by the clients of 'the Conrad' in Quinta Do Lago

Both places are lovely as you will see by the trip advisor scores, I thoroughly recommend it!

Around 100€ for 4 people but the quality doesnt correspond to the high standards of the hotel. Drinks are expensive, but this is normal in a 5 star hotel.

I wouldnt mind to pay a higher price but better quality.

“Some apartments are quite far from the pool area. If you want to be nearby, you should specify this upon reservation.”

“Around the pool on the first floor if you like good views, not too far from the clubhouse. In the 'back' if you like to be quiet.”
