Roomy, well maintained and can accommodate up to 8 people very comfortably. The view across the complex and out to sea from the upstairs dining area is stunning and it also has a retractable canopy to give shade for lunchtimes. The pool is larger than most villas in the area with plenty of space for sunbeds. The gas barbecue is easy to use and there is a fridge adjacent to the pool to keep everyone fully hydrated during the hot summer days. My family have been holidaying on the Dunas complex for over 10 years now and this villa is our first choice.
