sunAbout The Dunas Complex

The Dunas do Alvor complex  (where Marco's Bistro Bar is located ) doesn't have its own website but you can find plenty of places on the web that refer to it.  The 'Holiday Watchdog' site ( link image left ) will give you a good idea of what is on offer.
The complex consists of two large linked plazas sharing a common large swimming pool and sun terrace.
The ground floor areas are mainly shops ( including Marcos! ) and businesses with apartments located above.
