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... More

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... More

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.

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.

We returned to the Dom Joao II after a gap of two years. The place has not changed. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. A gem of a place to visit and a beach to die for. If you are visiting the Algarve, this is the only place to stay!
