Just returmed from a weeks holiday at the dom joa 11. The hotel is in a briiliant position on a fabulous stretch of beach and a ten minute stroll into the lovely village of alvor which is full of excellent restraunts. This is are third stay in this hotel in 4yrs and the staff are nothing short of excellent. We stayed b&b and ate out every night as you are spoilt for choice in alvor. The price of drinks is expensive so we drank at near by bars ,try the cactus bar or the chill out bar for your afternoon snack and at 1 euro a pint you cannot complain. The hotel and rooms are spotless and the pool area is relaxing with plenty beds and towels are free and can be exchanged daily. Worth taking a travel kettle if you like a cuppa in your room. This is the first time we have been bothered with mosquitoes so take some spray as a precaution.If you get chance try a relaxing drink in the square in alvor by the little chapel there is a face in the tree with out sretched arms i believe it is called the guardian of the square,hug it for luck. Spooky.
