Stayed at the apartment for 2 weeks in March. It was on the 5* Melia Dunas complex and was a really lovely place to stay - it had everything you needed for self catering, otherwise you could eat at the restaurants on site or in Santa Maria. The people on the complex and in Santa Maria were all very friendly. We didn't eat on site as it was fairly pricey - dinner was Euro49 or a full days food/drink was Euro65 per person (you can buy 7 days all inclusive for the price of 6). We preferred to go into Santa Maria by taxi (Euro6 return during the day and Euro8 after 6pm) where there was a wide range of restaurants. We were able to eat for cEuro40 for 2 people including drinks. We did use the coffee shop on site a couple of times and it was excellent - cappuccino and cake for 2 for Euro9. The complex is fairly big and was good for a walk after dinner. There was a good variety of entertainment at night. The grounds were well maintained with a great variety of flowers and shrubs.
The apartment had a nice balcony overlooking one of the pools and a lovely secluded sun terrace on the roof, which to be honest is where we spent most of our time. Temperature was mid twenties every day with no rain. We didn't use the beach although the sun beds/beach furniture looked good - sea had some rocks so care would be needed if swimming.
Would recommend the place for a nice relaxing holiday.
Spacious and modern penthouse apartment. Good quality kitchen appliances. Two bathrooms (one en suite) which was great. Large tv's in lounge and ensuite bedroom. Plenty of towels and sheets supplied and beach towels are supplied by the resort and can be changed as often as you like You can catch the sun all day on the large roof terrace which has loungers, table and chairs. The resort itself is huge and appears to have lots to do for children. There are also various adult activities during the day and entertainment at night. We did not use these facilities so could not comment on the content. The resort is very well maintained. All in all a lovely flat and very good value.
