The luxurious Melia Dunas faces the ocean, and has a boulevard brimming with places to eat and drink.
This resort leads down to the white sands of Algodoeiro Beach. It’s huge - in fact, it'll take around 15 minutes to walk from one side to the other - and is surrounded by tropical gardens. Santa Maria is just a few minutes' drive away, too.
Interior designers here are going for something completely contemporary, so expect rooms and public spaces dressed in neutral, earthy tones, and accessorised by plants and wall art.

Dinner at rancho
You can’t have better steakes on the Dunas. A great benefit is the wines. Furthermore you are served by very nice and kind waiters and waitresses. Excellent performance and fine atmosphere with good sense of humour of the employees. More
Re-cap flight info was wrong all ok now flight info up from previous departure flight info updated this afternoon. Glad that’s sorted out and we don’t have red eye flight would not have wanted a great holiday to end that way.More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and I was overwhelmed when we got there because the place is huge! Our room was brilliant and the food was amazing! We had 4 restaurants to choose from and the service was fantastic. The entertainment was brilliant and I would recommend the lion king show, we saw it twice, I think there should be more entertainment on the melia side as it was mostly on the sol side. Also I expected a bit more of a fuss as it was our honeymoon.More
Fantastic place, hotel amazing and the people and staff just can't do enough for you, special mention for Antonio who gave us 10 ⭐️ treatment in the Rancho restaurant 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 We recommend and island tour booked with Nice Jason who will find on the hotels beach.. 10 ⭐️ experience worth every penny loved it ❤️More
Not the first time in Cape Verde- but first time on Sal Island🏝. It was a 'Last minute' decision to go on Holidays with my husband and 5 month old girl. From the very beginning we've been treated so well. Our room was the biggest so far, comparing to other holidays. We had a bath ( which was perfect - usually you get a shower) our room was very big and the hotel itself huge. You get the access to gym, spa, swimming pools etc. Staff is very friendly, and very helpful. Our favourite place for breakfast and lunch was Aqua- a la carte- Italian/Mediterranean restaurant . Each time Gildo and the rest of the staff were taking care if us so well, with a big smile on their faces!!😁. Food was fresh and tasty. In the evenings we used to go either Aqua or Rancho restaurant. Rancho is a ala carte - grill restaurant - if you prefer loads of meat like my husband - this is a place for you😁. We celebrated our Anniversary, and been welcomed by Antonio and his Staff with a lovely Champagne and extra Cake to celebrate our day. 👏 The hotel beach is big, clean and full of sun beds so there is no need to worry to find a place for yourself. 👍 Bars - there are multiple bars and places to get a drink/ cocktail or water around the hotel. There is an Adult only section which we obviously didn't use, but the service In this area was great. The weather was amazing - 28° during the day and a bit windy in the evenings which was perfect. I will highly recommend this place and this hotel :) More
