Stayed here for the second time, for a long weekend with my husband an our friend. Chose the hotel due to its close proximity to the pretty fishing village of Alvor and the beautiful beach. We were pleasantly surprised that the Dom Joao seemed much fresher than our last visit. Some of the carpeted areas appear to have been updated...

We chose this four star hotel for its good location and spa facilities. It is perfectly located with a beach front and a few minutes walk to the town. As it was not peak season, there were only few restaurants open near the area, nevertheless, we found our favourites and dined with them few times. The hotel is kept clean,...
