I absolutely loved staying in this hotel- it was spotlessly clean, breakfast was of a good standard and plentiful, our room gad a gorgeous view from the balcony. I liked its location, the fact that it was on the beach and a little stroll from the town centre so we could take a walk after all the fantastic food! We... More

Although we have been to Alvor many times this was our first stay at Pestana Dom Joao II. On arrival we were checked in efficiently and quickly by reception staff who were friendly and courteous. We were given a room on the first floor near the lift (due to my mobility disability) the room was spacious, walk in shower, separate... More

We were back for our second stay recently and are counting the days till we can return. The hotel has a lovely large pool area with plenty of space for sun bathing either beside the pool or off under one of the many trees in the manicured garden. The endless sandy beach is no more than a 2 minute walk... More

Stayed here for a week in the middle of Sep, as a base for a golfing holiday. I could not fault the place, rooms were big enough and clean. Swimming pools were ok, but i did not spend a lot of time in the Hotel, so i can not judge it to much, but overall it was nice and i... More

Check in was average, room average, bathroom good, breakfast not good enough, poor selection of fruit, poor selection of hot items, poor selection of fruit juices, coffee appalling, beach good, waves great, staff generally uninterested and not smiley. Will definitely try elsewhere next time.

I have stayed in this hotel as part of a golfing group for 4 years now and find it perfectly acceptable. The rooms are ok for 2 people, the staff are friendly and efficient when you need something and the buffet breakfasts have everything that you need to eat. The hotel has a feeling of tiredness in a few areas... More

I rated the hotel as excellent because it has excellent characteristics for a beach hotel, but is not perfect or excellent in all aspects. The best is the location, the garden areas, the outside look of the hotel and the rooms (despite the fact that they should not be carpeted under the bed for better hygiene). It stands by a... More
