“Perfect yet again”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here in 2014 and had such a good time that we booked again for 2015.
When we arrived, they had all of our details from the previous year so it was a very short check in (which is extremely welcomed when travelling with children)
I had asked if possible to have the same room as the previous year, but unfortunately that was occupied, so they put us in the room directly above. It's that kind of customer service that sets this place apart.
The rooms are very well laid out and have all of the amenities that make your holiday hassle free.
The pool area is great and there is plenty of room to lay down your towel even if there are no loungers available.
Overall, it's a perfect place to base yourself as it's quiet but still only a few mins walk from the town centre.

“Loved It!”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here a couple of years ago but with Thomson Holidays and really enjoyed it, this time we booked thru Torralvor which worked out even better and saved us money. Miguel & Sara welcomed us on our arrival and showed us to our apartment which was immaculately clean and over looking the pool. The room was a one bedroom with two single beds with a pull out double in the living room, the room has a fan, iron, ironing board, hob, cooking utensils etc. The shower is excellent with lots of pressure. There is also a safe supplied free of charge with Torralvor.
The pool is huge and clean, the kids loved it and there is a smaller pool for the toddlers to use, the pool opens at 9am where you get the usual thing of people claiming their spot on the loungers then leaving them empty for a few hours.
The pool is monitored by a life guard and only guests can use the pool area.
Dunas apartments are situated a ten min walk away from a gorgeous white sand beach, and local restaurants are close by, all of which served lovely service and food.
Miguel organised our transfer to/from the airport via taxi which saved us visiting everybody else's hotels by coach until we reached ours, and the price was reasonable.
We will be going back for a third time, Alvor is lovely, a good place to take the family.

“SIMPLY THE BEST FOR EVERTHING!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have visited the Dunas twice before in the last 4 years and this has been our best stay yet! The apartment we rented through Torralvor and I can safely say it was the cleanest and most spacious we have had yet. The facilities in the apartment are excellent with iron and ironing board and washing machine included. The cleaners are excellent and very pleasant and trustworthy. There have been reports of break ins but this seems to have been resolved and Torralvor are giving out the best advice which is use your safe, they give them free of charge so why wouldn't you use it. The pool was kept fantastically clean and the life guards are always on hand. The grounds of the complex seems to be the cleanest they have ever been with maintenance being carried out every day. We have travelled as a family of 5 each time and the 2 children have refused to go on holiday anywhere else. The apartments are excellent but combined with a fantastic resort with lovely fish restaurants and bars at reasonable prices you cannot go wrong. The people that return every year to this place say it all ITS WONDERFUL. Can`t say a bad word about the place and I would recommend travelling with Torralvor. Sara and Miguel are always on hand to help and are totally professional when it comes to corresponding from the uk. A totally FAB holiday once again!!!!!!!!!!

“Basic clean accommodation in great location”
Reviewed 6 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed in Dunas last week when visiting Alvor for a wedding. They were good spacious clean apartments in a good location ( 5min one way to the beach and 5 min the other to town). Was a proper big kitchen not just a kitchenette like in other apartments. Had a lovely big pool area. Beds were limited sometimes as people hogged them with their towels but there was plenty of green areas to throw yourself down under the trees.

The apartments were perfect for our stay and would definitely return and recommend them. the only two issues I would have are - 1 there is no air con in them (but they did have a fan in them which worked out good in the end!) and 2 - they appear to be run by a management company (if booked through Toralvor). They work out of a small office downstairs that has limited opening hours. You are given details for 24 hour contact so it works out fine but just don't expect the usual big reception area that you would go through.

overall good clean apartments, good value for money and great location.
