As a base for a golf trip it was excellent with clean , spacious rooms and comfortable beds. However the communal areas require sprucing up and the breakfast food,although plentiful was a bit mixed in terms of quality. Alvor as a centre was excellent with a great choice of restaurants and bars within reasonable walking distance.

I tried to amend my (fully amendable) reservation before arrival but the central reservations were absolutely useless so I left it as it was. We stayed 6 nights in April. Arrived at 2:30 but our room wasn't available until 3:20 and we were left waiting in reception without any offer of a drink to pass the time, so didn't create...

We have travelled as a family and a couple to the Pestana hotels for the last 5 years in Alvor. This is the third time we have visited Dom Joao as it has always ticked all boxes. Sadly though we were very disappointed overall this year. There appear to have been cuts made in staff and food quality. This is...

A group of us stayed here for 7 nights, the men playing golf on 5 of those days. The hotel is in good order, clean and bright. My wife and I had a double room on the 4th floor. Unfortunately the view was over the car park (even numbers over the car park odd numbers have a view over the...

The hotel is in a great location overlooking a fabulous long sandy beach. The views of the sea area from the hotel are outstanding and very beautiful. The rooms are clean modern and nice for a standard holiday - with fridge and free safe - but no drink making facilities. The pool is large but is salt-water and is not...

“sea view rooms are best”

“Ask for a sea-view room as the rest of the rooms just look at the carpark.”
JoeGraham379, 11 Apr 2017 | Read review
“Always go for Air conditioning if in one of the garden villas, as it can be cold in the evening.”

“If you want sun then pick a beach facing room. Back of the hotel does not have the terrific views of the front but it is cooler.”
