This complex is ok but the beaches or very rocky impossible to swim. There’s not shuttle to the airport. The reception staff are completely slow like your a number and all the want is to get more money out you . I’ve been to many Melia ressort this one is a no go for me...

The Dunas resort is divided in two, SOL Dunas and MELIA Dunas. We stayed on Melia side - which was more adult/couple suitable and the Sol side more family or younger family orientated. The complex was clean and well kept. The pools and facilities (such as communal toilets) were spotless. Our room was large and clean, with fridge and good air conditioning, there was also kettle and hairdryer and a free to use safe for valuables. The food buffet was great and we loved having 4 restaurants to book for dinner if we wanted something more formal. There are also many bars to grab that late night drink or nightcap ! The Gabi beach bar and the beachcomber bar provided drinks at the beach and there were swim up pool bars for refreshments (drinks) poolside! Drinks really were all inclusive- spirits(local but extensive) wine, beer, cava, Prosecco, and cocktails- we had zero addition spend! The only downside is the 6 hour layover in Lisbon outward , but we survived! We will definitely be going back!

we stayed here for 4 days and it was nothing short of perfect. We wished we had stayed longer. The ambience was great, even better than the pictures. Food was great too and literally all inclusive, meaning you don’t have to pay for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even drinks. Everything is covered in the cost of the room. Totally amazing! The pools are relaxing and great too.

We were very disappointed with this hotel. Booked as a 5 star hotel, and for a €200 room per night, the deluxe room we stayed was very dirty, shower in the suite in terrible conditions, damaged furniture, poor food (canned fruit for example), etc... Fortunately the local staff with their incredible hospitality and friendless made it bearable.
