A lovely hotel and great overall value for money. It is true to say, that on one side it looks out onto the hotel car park. However, it is set so close to the beautiful sandy beach that it would be fair to say the overall location is perfect for beach lovers and holiday makers in general. The staff were... More

Ideally located for the beach. Tasty breakfast and prearranged golf. Within walking distance of the harbour and town centre bars and rstaurants. Ideal location for a group of friends to stay and play (bad) golf ... on good courses. Shame they have changed the beer from previous visits.

We stayed in this very nice hotel situated on the beach. Staff very efficient and friendly in every way. Room was nice, with balcony, however the only downside was that you had no privacy from either side, only open style dividers. Buffet breakfast was good,with a fresh hot counter available too. Poolside area very spacious and clean and a lovely... More

This hotel has all the add-ons that a 4 star (as advertised) hotel usually boasts - fancy reception area, large dining room, bar with entertainment, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, spa facility, etc. However, the rooms are a real let down. The night before flying, I stayed at an airport hotel which is everything premier but the price and I... More

Staff were excellant and friendly, The Hotel is mainly occupied by Golfers and most of them Irish, so the general atmosphere is very friendly. Very much an older crowd stay here. Common areas are a bit dated looking but in good condition. Rooms are small but well decorated. The glass window from the bathroom to the room is a bit... More

Great location for beach and town. Clean friendly hotel. Breakfast good. Better out of season as not so busy. Rooms and decor really nice and fresh only spoiled by the lumpy pillows. When clearly money has been spent on a re fit why cheap lumpy old pillows ? For me a good nights sleep is so important.

Just returned from 11 days at the Dom Joao and enjoyed every minute! We have been holidaying in Alvor for over 20 years and have stayed at this hotel many times usually in February or March. The recent improvements in the dining room are excellent - better quality produce, show cooking and more coffee machines. Our room was lovely and... More
