Arrived home yesterday from a great holiday with my husband and 12 year old son. On arrival check in was swift. Room lovely, beds comfortable and very clean. Only complaint we would have was a huge tree in front of balcony, so could not see anything other than shrubbery and balcony very small. Breakfasts were excellent with so much choice... More

Four night stay on a golfing trip (group of 9). Nice hotel on the outskirts of Alvor, 5-10 mins walk from bars and 15 mins from main area of restaurants etc. Clean, recently refurbished rooms with good beds and bathrooms. Only had breakfast in the hotel but was better than expected, plenty of choice and includes omelette bar and fresh... More

Had to comment last year on the shoddy overbooking scenario that seems to prevail here. Happy to redress the balance this year. We had ensured in advance that our annual booking for a party of twelve golfers would be honoured as we find the Dom Joao ideal for our requirements and had no problems this year. The rooms are great... More

My wife and I had booked a week in the Pestana Dom Joao II through Jet 2 and hired a car from Faro Airport. The drive takes about 1 hour if you use the A22, which I would highly recommend and stay on it until the sign for the Alvor slip road, very straightforward. The hotel is easy to find,... More

I booked a double room in Dom Joao 11 in May for 7 night in Sept/Oct. I booked through the Travel Republic and they use an agent – Magic Rooms – to make bookings on their behalf. I had read on trip advisor that this hotel was often overbooked and clients were let down at the last minute. Because people... More

It was my partner's birthday while there, and they brought him champagne and cake - excellent. We went on B&B basis and breakfast was brilliant - well impressed with the choices... More

We arrived at the hotel early but the rooms were ready so that was great. We had requested 3 rooms on the same floor. We had paid extra for seaviews and I think this was money well spent as we enjoyed the wonderful sunsets over the vast sea every evening. The hotel is located a short walk from the centre... More
