This hotel is open contrary to a recent tripadvisor report. we stayed here in October for 10 days booking with golf breaks.com the check in at the Pestano Dom Jaoa 2 was courteous and friendly though i can see the potential for staff to be overwhelmed by a sudden rush of guests, luckily for us that didnt happen. we had been guaranteed a sea view however the view from the rear apartments on the lower floors is severely restricted and of course we were allocated one of those. A hasty return to reception saw us allocated the top floor albeit with a limited but definite view of the sea. If you can book ahead try to secure rooms ending in 01 03 or 04 on the upper floors there are 11 in total, as they have the best views. The apartments were built in the 1970s and are now be sold off by the Pestano group. The level of cleanliness and maid service was excellent with good self catering facilities but no washing machine. Despite falling very ill with a norovirus I cant fault the hotel ,the grounds are quiet, plenty of sun beds, lovely beach, indoor pool, and a decent but not outstanding breakfast which is at the DJ main hotel . The main pool is sea water and at 22 c much the same as the sea which was refreshing. Alvor is a brisk 10 minute walk away down an uninspiring road but once you arrive there are plenty of restaurants to choose and a lovely fishing village come holiday resort atmosphere. Played Pinta da Vale and Gremacho courses and scored well on both they are not long courses and with generous fairways a good second ball will give you a chance of a good score, even if you are not a big hitter. I found the Gremacho greens superb and true. Pinta was a bit slow and the putts needed hitting and i was often short which was a shame . Sadly the norovirus kicked in and that was that ,however the quiet apartment helped recovery. Would I return for the price I paid bed & Breakfast well better deals can be had at Belek in Turkey all inclusive . Perhaps I might negotiate a deal direct with Pestano who own 6 or 7 courses and many hotels . Finally PESTANO will take you to the golf course every 2 hours for 40 euros a week each but this can mean an early start and not always convenient pickup time. Pestano del SOL course is not included in this package as it is 50 kms away, my advice is hire a car and then you have better flexibility.
