Just got back from a wonderful week stay at the soa joao, the staff were friendly and welcoming, the hotel was kept immaculate all the time and the food was out of this world. The master chef evening is a must whilst at the hotel, any infomation about the island just ask Rosie nothing to much trouble for her.

Calm, peaceful, understated, interesting, warm & welcoming. All staff terrific, All questions answered, information about the island at your fingertips. A turn down service every evening is a lovely touch, which you don't often get anymore. We will definitely return to the QSJ.
