Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay in the villa and would definitely consider booking with Sandyblue again if we come back to the area. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sandyblue to any of our family and friends thinking about going to the Algarve and we have already spoken highly of the villa and Sandyblue. Thanks for the offer of a discount!

The villa is very comfortable and even though there were 8 of us staying there, 2 families, we all thought that the villa was big enough and well laid out so that it felt like we all had enough space. It was great having little extras like the children's toys for the pool and beach and the books and games for the children in the villa. They are the kind of things you don't want to have to bring with you or buy just for your holiday. The area is beautiful and is ideal for families with young children. Neville & Amy

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Most tours offer a pickup/dropoff bus service from Dunas Douradas/Vale Do Lobo to the attractions. The Algarve offers many excellent attractions from adrenalin packed adventure to more leisurely pursuits. You name it – we have it!

There are many attractions within a short distance from the villa, including 20 kilometres of glorious sandy beaches. Towns include – Faro, Vilamoura, Quarteira, Guia and recommended are day trips to the nearby islands of Tavira, Isla Deserta, Armona and Culatra. There are several water parks in the Algarve, the closest is Aquashow which is about a 10 minute drive. Within the area there is an excellent selection of watersports, tours and activities including horse riding. In the villa is a well stocked folder with all the details of the attractions so you can read at leisure and book your choices.


Ancao beach is a easy 5 minute stroll through the resort. It is a safe, clean, 'blue flag' beach for families. Cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and toilet facilities are available at the beach too. There are sun loungers are for hire.

The beach is fab for all - long sandy and with numerous restaurants and bars all just within walking distance. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon on the beach and then wander home for a bbq and watching the sunset while you have a nightime dip in the pool. Perfect !


We recommend that you hire a car to make the most of the fantastic facilities in the area. If you are a bit unsure of driving from the airport we can arrange a personal meet and greet service from/to the airport in a registered private car and also supply baby/car chairs for the children. Then you can have your hire car delivered to the villa at your convenience.


Almancil (5 minutes drive) has Apolonia Supermarket (excellent continental selection of foods and wine) they accept all major credit cards and next door is Aldi (cash only or Portuguese registered multi banco cards). In Faro (15 minutes drive) there is a large shopping centre with Jumbo and Pingo Doce supermarkets. Just up the hill in Loule there are several supermarkets including Continente, Modelo, Pingo Doce and Lidl.

Further Details:

Dunas Douradas is an upmarket, luxury development, situated by the beach between Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago and lies in some 76 acres of African pine trees. It is a safe, family-friendly resort with a Roman communal pool and a children’s pool. There is a pool-bar serving all-day food and a reception area which is open 24 hours a day, where the friendly staff will help you with anything from booking tours and discount golf to recommending one of the many excellent restaurants in the area. There are two tennis courts with a resident pro for lessons for all ages. The resort is guarded by 24hr security.
