Having just returned from our third visit to this hotel we found it to be once again a fantastic place to stay. The staff in all areas are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. The town of Alvor is a 10 min stroll and the fabulous beach is just beyond the hotel gardens I would thoroughly recommend this... More

The Pestana Dom Joao II is located about two thirds of the way along the beautiful Alvor beach; the hotel's gardens edge onto this golden sanded paradise. We have stayed in Alvor before but had decided this time to find hotel accommodation right on the beach with a sea view. On first arriving, we were impressed with the front facade... More

Stayed early July and upon check-in were upgraded to a sea view room, a great way to start the holiday! The room was spacious with a kingsize (or larger) bed, there was a walk in shower with the loo, basin etc in a seperate area. The hotel is set on the edge of Alvor beach, a short walk through the...

Myself and my boyfriend spent 10 days here from the 6th July. The hotel was nice itself but the rooms were not great! The air conditioning wasn't the best and the rooms got very hot at times and the carpets in our room (407) were stinking! The pillows were lumpy too and uncomfortable but my boyfriend found them ok to... More

Just returned from Alvor after staying for 11 nights. Our room had a very small balcony sea facing and my husband went back to reception and asked if we could move to a higher floor with large balcony. They were very obliging and We moved 2 days later. Our room was fantastic with a view to die for. Hotel is... More

Room has a small fridge which is really handy. A/C wasn't too effective. Breakfasts good with a decent chioce inc freshly made omletts. Large pool surrounded by lawned area which has numerous...

There is nothing to dislike about this place unless you want to be really picky!! So the picky bits that no normal person would have an issue with IMHO. Its not really four star, it may have been when it was built. The corridors are a bit tired (spotless though) and the restaurant for evening meals is not really four... More

We were booked in to the hotel in June this year but due to over booking we were given a villa which was tremendous. We had a two bed three bathroom villa to ourselves. It was serviced everyday and although it was meant for people who were self catering we still enjoyed the breakfast in the hotel which was part... More
