An exceptional hotel in the Algarve, uniting modern luxury with classic Portuguese tile. It's a 5-star hotel with direct access to the beach of San Rafael, which is one of the most beautiful in the area. You'll want for nothing - great breakfasts, and beautiful decor. In the room, which comes with a balcony, you have everything you need to make your stay perfect - a bathroom with tub and shower, hairdryer, amenities, cable TV, telephone, safe, minibar, etc. It is certainly a great choice to stay in this touristy part of Portugal.
We like to spend at least seven days at Christmas time outside Madrid, and on this occasion we chose to go to the Algarve. We booked all the way back in August - better to be safe than sorry - and paid 159 euros for the entire week. The hotel location is just perfect, a little over 400 metres from the beach and about 200 from a large supermarket. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, it has everything you need to spend a few days relaxing, with an outdoor pool and deck, a small jacuzzi, gym with sauna (7.50 euros a day), games room, dining room, bar, live music, and wifi for 3 euros an hour. The spacious and comfortable apartment is composed of a bedroom, full bath, kitchen, and living room with two sofa beds.
We chose this hotel because it seemed like good value for 1 week with 5 stars. We paid less than 80 euros a night, including breakfast. There's freee parking and free internet (wireless in the lobby, wired in the rooms). The location is away from the centre of Albufeira, which we saw as positive. It is in a complex with several other hotels, almost all part of the CS chain. The Dunas Suites is near the beach, and in fact everyone who accesses the beach parking passes by the hotel. The rooms are all huge suites, with a very large bed separated from the lounge by a few screens. The living room has a sofa, coffee table, dining table with four chairs, fairly large flatscreen TV, two cabinets and a kitchen area, as you can see in my photos.
The balcony is very big, with a small table with two chairs. The bathroom was simple, without towels but with bathrobes and a hairdryer. We didn't use the room service, as it was a bit pricey. You can ask for an iron and ironing board. They have a bar and a restaurant, and a buffet is 15 euros a head plus drinks, although it was quite limited for a 5* hotel. You can always order a la carte if you prefer. There's also a snack bar, and nine pools with different depths, some suitable for children. There are umbrellas and towels for rent, and live music in the evenings. You can use the spa, the gym, the Italian restaurant and the lounge bar, and there's a mini-market just across the road. The staff are great, very friendly, and always willing to help. The breakfast buffet is wonderful, and includes champagne. Finally, I want to mention that this is popular as a family hotel, and a good place to stay if you're going on holiday with the children.

Really disappointed by this hotel. We found a rusty, dirty-looking bathtub, stained walls, spider webs, moisture and a strong odor. The last straw was returning to find three cockroaches, and the water running non-stop, unable to turn off. They didn't offer us any solutions, just put a towel on the floor for the water and killed the cockroaches. The next day we tried to get our money back for the rest of the stay, but nothing's happened so far. The agency has even spoken with the hotel manager, but no solution. We've changed room, and the new one is a slight improvement, but there are still plenty of problems. I strongly advise against staying in this hotel, which has 2 stars and quite a high cost (we paid 115 a night), way more than it should be.

We stayed here three nights, with breakfast included. The room wasn't very modern, but it was very clean, and the kitchen was complete - I expected to find an electric stove, and instead there was a microwave, refrigerator, sink, all kinds of kitchenware in perfect condition, and even an extractor hood. There was a large bathroom, with tub and bidet, and a terrace with a table and two chairs for outdoor dining. The hotel facilities were pretty good, with a large outdoor pool and a very nice indoor pool. We didn't use the other facilities on offer. Breakfast was a buffet that seemed to be more designed for English tourists. They only had a couple of varieties of muffin, and not much fruit or cereal. The rest was all sausages, scrambled eggs, French toast, bacon, beans ... I prefer a more Mediterranean breakfast, but if you like this kind of thing, then you'll enjoy it. The overall cleanliness was very good, the staff were charming, and the location was great.
This is a perfect place to relax with family, away from the tourist bustle of Albufeira hotel. You can enjoy the relaxation and tranquility in the resort facilities. Close to Salgados Beach (white sand, spacious and very clean), 5 min on foot or 2 min drive. It has three very clean, round pools: 0.4 m, 1.5 m and 1.8 m with plenty of sunbeds, a spa, free parking, and a golf course. We had a quality breakfast buffet included. Spacious room, large bed, and a huge shower. Our room had a resort view with a very relaxing, spring water sound, but if you close the windows its completely soundproofed. Wide and comfortable terrace. Very friendly staff, condition of the hotel is very comfortable, and clean in all facilities. The only downside is the beds and pillows are somewhat soft. TV is huge and great quality, but the signal was defective for any channel. Highly recommended and if we return to Albufeira, we will return. Note: 9.5
