Overlooking Alvor Beach, one of the best beaches of the Algarve and extending for several kilometres, this contemporary style hotel is situated in a privileged location close to the Alvor Estuary, a major nature protection area for birds. The centre of Alvor is within a 10-minute walk, Portimão, the largest city in West Algarve, is 7 km away. In the city, guests will find themselves in a place of many cafes and restaurants. Faro International Airport is at a distance of 74 km. The hotel offers modern guest rooms with air conditioning, cable TV, mini bar, safe, telephone, hair dryer and bath amenities.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

16 ON A GOLF HOLIDAY

Found this place to be absolutely perfect for our needs. Stayed 5 nights B&B. Rooms were ideal for the type of holiday we were on with a spacious bath/shower room...

Hotel was very clean, as were the rooms. Staff were friendly, helpful and even went above to provide a room for our clubs for 4 hours while we waited to check-in. Breakfast was a highlight with an egg chef being the icing on the cake. Beer and food prices were very competitive for the area and not overpriced. The sauna/steam facilities and indoor pool were fantastic, however a towel service in there would have been a welcome addition. All in all a fantastic hotel to stay in a stunning location. Booked again for the same time next year and can't wait to get back there.

Holiday from hell

Review by brendanb997 Dublin, Ireland

When we arrived my wife noticed a damp smell but thought it was it was because the villa wasn't let put for a while then noticed mold on the walls . Damp seats so complained to reception they just cleaned the mold on the bed room wall . When complained again on check out we were offered a lunch voucher which we never used because it was an insult

Love this hotel

Review by Gillian R Keighley, United Kingdom

We always stay at this hotel, there are so many things that are great about the Dom João, the staff on reception are so helpful, kind and so lovely. The dining staff are always polite, smiley and helpful, the housekeeping ladies are also very helpful and lovely. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel...

In the breakfast area this time we were very pleased to see the addition and new mugs, much better for me to hold and easier to carry. Staying at this hotel enables me to walk into the village as it is an easy walk, no hills its straight forward. I really could not see us staying anywhere else when we visit Alvor and we visit alvor at least 4-5 times a year where possible. Keep up the good work everyone.
