Just came home from a week at Dunas de Sal - this was our second stay at the hotel, last time was in 2012. The best thing about the hotel is the friendly staff and the pool area. My favourite thing was enjoying the breakfast buffet outside every morning in the sun, with the palm trees swaying in the wind...

We chose Dunas De Sal because we are not fans of large all inclusive hotels. We prefer smaller hotels on a B&B basis so that we can venture out to local restaurants and enjoy the atmosphere.
