ZDTI Algodoeiro Santa Maria, Sal
The Sol Dunas Resort is a great spot for relaxing – there are four pools and it’s just a 15-minute walk from a sandy beach. Location gets a big tick here – you’re just 15 minutes’ stroll from the beach and the views of the Atlantic Ocean are incredible.

Melia Dunas was split into two hotels
1 year 4 months ago
We went to this hotel only to find out the day after we arrived the hotel was being split into two hotels this caused a lot of confusion for the customers and the staff, especially as we were booked into the Melia Dunas but we were put into the Sol Dunas a much cheaper hotel.

We were refused service in both hotels because of the confusion so we ended up having to wear two wrist bands. In the main restaurant the food was not covered so there was often flies on the food. Cats roamed around freely in the food outlets and birds often landed on the tables outside leaving bird droppings on the tables .

The main swimming pool in the Melia had black mould around the swim up bar the steps into the pool had broken tiles. The cushions on the sun lounger pods were very dirty and badly stained. Most of the food outlets had to be booked at a certain time of the day. It took at least 15 minute to walk to the beach from our room there were buggys but you had to go to main reception to board one and often had to wait 5 or 10 minutes.

There is not very much to see on the island a small fishing village a short bus ride away
