Great location right on the beach. Pool area bit scruffy- uneven tiles, weeds etc. Ridiculous price for beer no wonder "happy hour " popular. Cannot be justified. Take your own . Sea view essential at a price because some rooms at roadside not good at all. Breakfast fairly good. Bedrooms nicely furnished. 4* hotel ? Debatable. Would not stay here again. Been to Alvor many time. Better places to stay cost wise.

We visited Dom Joao hotel on 4th september for 10 nights & this was our 10th year to return. The location on edge of Alvor beach is stunning and the views from seaview room balconies are breathtaking. We stay on a B&B basis & the breakfast offer is comprehensive & wholesome. But sadly Pestana have failed to upgrade the hotel with worn stair carpets, bedrooms with baths only & no handgrips to help aged people like ourselves to access them,couches that are tattered & worn and poolside furniture falling apart. It grieves me greatly to confirm these things because we have great effection for the hotel as we keep returning but Pestana needs to urgently invest in this facility if they wish its success to continue.

Just returned from our holiday. 2 wonderful weeks in Alvor at the Pestana Dom João. The hotel is amazing. At check in I was a bit disappointed with our room as we had no balcony. My husband spoke to Ana at Reception. This holiday we were celebrating 34 years of marriage. Ana changed our room the next day. What a wonderful surprise champagne, marshmallows with chocolate sauce and bathrobes and slippers and of course a balcony. The room was very clean and really comfortable. Lots of wardrobe space. A lovely bathroom. Bright decor. The bed and pillows were really comfortable. Breakfast was amazing, lots of choice. The pool and garden area was beautiful. Your right on the front and the beach is just outside the gate. Beautiful coast line. Alvor is delightful with lots of bars and cafes and restaurants. All the hotel staff were extremely friendly and made you feel special and welcome. Special mention to Ana and Jana. Nothing negative to say. Yes the pool bar was expensive but there are plenty of supermarkets near by. I would love to come back again. Thanks Pestana for a fabulous 2 weeks and to Ana for making our anniversary extra special.

Excellent location. The beach so close - 2 minutes walk. Very nice swimming pools. All staff very helpful. A member of our family needing gluten free food was well looked after at breakfast. It was great to be offered an upgrade to a sea view room. Hope to make further visits.
