Can anybody help me. We are staying at Dom Joao ll in October 2015, on a golfing break. We have a couple of early rounds booked, where we have to leave the hotel at 07.00. Does anyone know what time the restaurant opens for breakfast please ? Many thanks if you can help.

We stayed here mid February 2015. We were having a lovely stay, nice room with a sea view from the balcony, good buffet breakfast, reasonable evening entertainment THEN my wife broke her leg whilst out cycling. The help from the hotel / staff was magnificent, nothing was too much trouble, help was freely given. Thanks very much All for less... More

Location to beach fantastic. Lovely gardens. Modern, clean hotel with good amenities. Room fresh and cheerful, though bathroom window questionable. Also pillows needed replacing. Staff very nice. Breakfasts good.

A weekend break with my hubby. We stayed here for 3 nights in October. The location was perfect. The hotel very clean and staff very helpful. I did not request a sea view so our room was facing the car park, so next time I will request a sea view. Even at this time of year the hotel was busy.

Stayed w/c 8th Feb. Chose half-board & sea view. Staff very professional, rooms nice, apart from the carpet was badly stained. Sea view worth the extra. Meals very nice with a variety of choice at breakfast & evening meal. Overall good value for money. Phil .

Just spent a week in the Pestana Dom Joao II and loved every minute of it. The location on the beach couldn't be better and the short walk into town suited us well as we only had breakfast in on our stay. Even at this time of year there was plenty of bars and restaurants open to give a good... More

Our second visit here with a group of golfing friends. A very good location for a walk into the town of Alvor, the beach and boardwalk by the estuary. The hotel is kept very clean with plenty of seating areas in reception and the lounge which is light and pleasant. The bar & restaurant staff are very helpful, courteous &... More
