We stayed here at the beginning of July. The hotel was a short cab ride from the local train station and was about €5-€10 can't remember exactly. The hotel was recently refurbished so the lobby looks bright and welcoming and all the staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a room facing the beach with a balcony, the room and bathroom was small but comfortable and modern and clean so we have no real complaints there, plus the view is beautiful, especially at sunset. We only ate breakfast at the hotel and that was a buffet breakfast with a range of cereals and hot food etc, the breakfast was average but satisfied us. We only stayed at this hotel for two nights as we spent the majority of our time in Lisbon. However, the time we spent in Algarve and at the Dom Jose beach hotel was great. The hotel has a decent sized pool but limited beach chairs so I can imagine during peak season it must get packed quickly. The concierges were a great help, they assisted us with everything from booking local excursions to giving us tips on local restaurants and places to visit. If you stay here I recommend that you book the catamaran tour around the caves as they are worth seeing, however there are a range of tours so read the tour specification properly as some tours are better than others. The only downside about the hotels services is that there was no free wi-fi and if i was staying longer that would have been a necessity.
Overall I would recommend this hotel and would probably stay here again if I visit that part of Algarve.
