My wife and I stayed here for a 5 day break starting 26/11/16. We have holidayed at this hotel several times over the years and have never been dissatisfied. We arrived on a Saturday evening and our check in was a speedy and efficient experience. We had booked a premier sea view room and were allocated room 507. These rooms...

We are currently enjoying a wonderful break away here at the Dom Joao II. It is fantastic value for money costing just 50 euros a night for b&b. That's for two people!! Not each!! Amazing!! The breakfast is all you could hope for with a great choice of fruits, cereals, and hot foods. The evening meal wasn't great to be...

We got a good deal for B and B through Secret Escapes. This provided a carpark facing refurbished room. A better view was available for €15 per night extra but as we were planning on being out all day and it went dark at 5pm we stayed put. Our room was modern and compact and perfectly adequate for our 3...

A very quiet hotel with a very good service and with a privileged location. My family and I were very well received at this hotel. A complete hotel, where we did not miss anything. We feel at home. Highly recommend to all travelers.

Great location and facilities but the evening buffet was extremely poor quality. Consequently, I would avoid full board and enjoy the very good restaurants in Alvor and surrounds, Some of the reception staff need to be more customer orientated.

Stayed here on a golfing trip and not disappointed. The room was clean and well serviced during my.week stay, breakfast was excellent with good selection. The view from the hotel is stunning and nice to be able to walk on beach on walkways. Highly recommended.

We have stayed at this hotel twice and found it off high standard. Buffet breakfast was excellent and rooms very comfortable. Location is perfect and staff very efficient. The grounds are very well laid out so you don't have to necessarily bathe at the pool only.
