Overview

Kids will love the splash park, waterslides and playground here. But that doesn’t mean this place has forgotten about the grown-ups. There are four bars across the site and access to a swanky spa.

There’s plenty going on during the day – you can get stuck in with an A to Z of activities. Or, if you want to explore, take a stroll to the beach – it’s a 15-minute wander away.

Please Note

While you're away, you'll have access to our 24-hour digital service, and a rep will visit at least once.

Pools

There are three pools to kick back by, all of which are surrounded by loungers and thatched parasols. Toddlers have a pool of their own to paddle in, too.

Pool Scene

A sunken pirate ship, plus animal and tree-shaped fountains are plotted into a kids’ splash park. There’s also a four-lane slide and a couple of curvy chutes for little ones to charge down.

Food & Drink

You’ll want to load your plate high with the tasty offerings dished up the buffet restaurant. Breakfast is just as impressive, with a spread of hot and cold food for a hearty start to the day.

For daytime delicacies there’s a little restaurant with a good line in à la carte dining. To cure those afternoon hunger pangs, pop along for a tasty snack.

Entertainment

After dark, the amphitheatre’s the place to be. It’s the setting for mini-discos, live music performances and West End-inspired shows. The seating’s staggered, so you should get a good view wherever you sit.

For something more chilled, there are five bars where you can settle in for a couple of post-dinner cocktails.

Sports & Activities

The water-based activities include the likes of aqua gym, fishing* and kite surfing*. Back on dry land, you’ve got stuff like beach volleyball and table tennis to choose from. You can dial it down a notch with yoga, too.

Facility Overview

There’s a main buffet restaurant at Sol Dunas Resort serving international cuisine, and a snack bar, too. If you fancy a tipple you can take your pick from five bars. There are three main pools and a separate spot for children to take a dip. There are hotel-run clubs for children and teenagers, a splash park and a playground. Treatments* are available at the spa and there’s a gym too, both located at the adjoining Melia Dunas Resort.

Little ones can let loose at the kids' clubs, or the play area – it’s castle-themed, with wobbly bridges and climbing nets to clamber over. As for teens, the games room – stocked with board games and billiards – is a big hit with them, as is the mini-cinema.

Health & Beauty

This place shares spa and gym facilities with the stylish Melia Dunas Resort. There are treatments* on the menu and it's right beside the Sol Dunas.

The hotel room was clean and spacious and, where we were located, very quiet. But it was like a large bedsit as opposed to a hotel apartment. So if one of you wanted to stay up, the other just had to...
