This spacious, bright, first floor apartment is situated in a quiet location of the resort, within a short walk to all the facilities of Dunas Douradas. These include a very large outdoor pool, a baby pool, extensive sunny terraces with lots of sunbeds and sunshades, 2 tennis courts, Xenia the restaurant with its lively bar and the main reception. The main appeal of this lovely family resort is its close proximity to the long sandy beach, just 20 minutes away from the apartment, and barely a 5 minutes' car drive away.
The open plan layout of the apartment gives a feeling of light and space and as you enter the whole apartment opens up in front of you right through to the south facing covered terrace overlooking landscaped gardens.
The open-plan kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and microwave, conveniently located beside the dining area.
The guest bedroom and its adjacent shower/WC room is to the right of the entrance. Here there is also a large walk-in lockup area where buckets and spades, beach body boards and additional blankets and duvets are stored. This can also be used as a lockup for any valuable items.
The south facing master bedroom floods with sunshine in the morning, it has a double bed and an ensuite bathroom. Both bedrooms have air-conditioning units (hot and cold). The living room is very tastefully furnished to ensure easy holiday living and has a flat screen TV with digital/cable TV, a DVD and radio/CD player. The main sofa has a pull-out bed.
Wi Fi for internet connection is available free of charge in the apartment.

RESTAURANTS / ENTERTAINMENT: There is an immense choice of restaurants for all tastes and budgets. Information and recommendations are available form Reception or found in the info booklet in the apartment.
Quinta Shopping and Buganvillia Plaza are two shopping malls which are situated 10 mins from the resort. Quinta Shopping is an elegant open area of luxury shops and restaurants, outdoor cafés and potted trees, creating a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy lunch, dinner or just an evening drink at the nearby pubs, the Melting Pot and the newly refurbished Cheeky Pup (previously De Barra's). Here you will also find restaurants, catering for most palates. If all you're looking for is a lunchtime salad or baguette, the cafés are the perfect place.
Summer Holiday in Portugal
By Emma Lowery on 20-Jul-2018
We’ve just returned from a week away in this apartment. This is our second time in the apartment, having had such a lovely time on the first visit.
Whilst the apartment is dated, it’s very clean and has everything. The two bedrooms is an added bonus and great when travelling with children. Linda, the owner, is great and the level of communication is amazing. She’s really helpful and nothing is a problem.
The complex is great. Again, it’s clean and has everything. There is no rush for a sun bed on a morning. There is a little shop and coffee shop on site; both of which are great. It’s walking distance to the beach and restaurants.
It’s great here and we always enjoy our stay.
Lovely, comfortable apartment close to everything
By Nuala on 26-Jun-2018
We stayed in the apartment with our two young children for 2 weeks in July. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and made the whole booking experience very easy. The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay, with a very well equipped kitchen and barbecue on the balcony if you choose to eat in some nights. It’s just a stones throw from the resort swimming pool and restaurant/bar, and a short walk to the beach.
We found a car was necessary for trips to other beaches/supermarket/restaurants etc but it would be possible to get by without a car if you were happy to stick by the pool and nearby beach and restaurants on the beach. Also some of the supermarkets and restaurants in the area do home delivery!
Review from stay June 2018
By Jessica Welch on 27-May-2018
We’ve stayed in this apartment before and will come back again! We recently stayed for a week in June 2018. The apartment is in a great location near Vale de Lobo, with great amenities (bar, swimming pool) easy walking distance to beach, restaurants and close drive to shopping malls and supermarkets. Spacious and agreeable apartment in a very nice, safe area and very well equipped- WiFi, lovely balcony and barbecue and all mod cons. Would recommend.
Enjoyed the experience
By Michael Kilroy on 01-Nov-2017
I would like to say what a very pleasant experience we had for the month of November at Linda Forbes apartment. 311D Dunas Douradas. Everything worked in the apartment and the maid service was excellent. We found Linda very easy to work with and. We could highly recommend this apartment. We are in our seventies and we read alot and travelled by car to many places. We had our main meal at lunchtime out and cooked at home in the evening. Michael kilroy

The apartment was perfectly situated near to the reception, pool, tennis courts and Pool bar and restaurant. It is about 10 minutes stroll from the beach where there are other bars and restaurants. The complex is well designed and constantly being tidied and manicured to a very high standard. The apartment is very well equipped and furnished and the owners being local means that if there is any thing one needs they are on hand.
I fully recommend this apartment and although it is not inexpensive you get what you pay for.
