“a real gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2011

Just returned from a 5 night stay @ Hotel Dom Jose @ the end of May. It is a fantastic hotel and it really is hard to believe that it's only graded as a 3 star.
The hotel itself from the outside looks plain enough but once you step inside its a whole different ambience. The public areas are kept immaculately clean. The pool also is very clean and refreshing. The beach is lovely and during our stay was not busy - just what we needed. I am now a beach convert.
We stayed on a B&B basis and walked into Vila Moura every evening for our tea - its approximately 20 minutes dander and it is lovely. The marina although pricey is really a nice place.
I really couldn't praise this hotel enough, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
My only criticism would be that in May the complimentary beach loungers are not available. However, this is an extremely minor criticism as I really couldnt find anything negative. Oh and yes we got it for a ridiculously low price. I will be back to this wee gem hopefully before the end of the year.

just back from Dom Jose hotel great location lovely hotel spotlessly clean only dpwn side was the food. not much selection , waiting a lot of the time bexcause food ran out,also the staff were run off thier feet, trying to clear tables and fill up the food. At lunch time we had a snack in the lounge the girl that served us was literally running!! with the orders from the bar to kitchen then back wih the orders, definately need more staff. would go back to hotel but on a bed and breakfast basis. On the whole had a great holiday. ps best of all no fighting for sun beds!!

Room Tip: best rooms are sea view 8 euro's a day extra

We decided to stay at this hotel after reading the reviews on this website. We weren't disappointed. The hotel itself has been renovated into a modern, clean and comfortable place to stay. The staff are helpful and friendly. The best feature of this hotel is the veranda which overlooks the beach and ocean, a great place to just sit and relax. We spent most of our time down there and we never got bored of the view. The room was nice, great air con which kept it cool and comfortable. Overall a great place to stay and would definately return here.

Upon arrival my heart sank.....from the outside this hotel looks nothing......but I have to say a big surprise when we went through the doors! Lovely modern decor, huge lounge & welcoming reception. Our room wasn't quite ready when we checked in as it had been an early flight but the staff took our luggage & stored it & checked us in. We sat out on the bar terrace & took in the amazing sea view & relaxed with a couple of large beers. The food was always good with plenty of choice, however, some guests had gone for 2 weeks & got a little fed up with it, but as we were there for just a week it was fine for us. The bar menu wasn't as good for lunch & snacks so we would recommend eating in one of the many seafront cafe's. A couple of doors down from the hotel we found a great place to eat called TINA snack bar & they do the biggest toasties you've ever seen & the best ice cream sundaes ever! It's run by a lovely lady called Fatima & her right hand man Nelson who is a gem, they stayed open late for us on our last night so we could have our final ice cream sundae with them so pop along & say hello for us. Our only regret was paying 60 euros for a trip to Zoomarine, as a couple it was a not worth the money, if you have kids there are more things to do, the aquarium was a let down, 1 tank with 1 shark, a couple of bluerays & a handful of smaller fish & the campest seal show ever seen!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view when you check in

I stayed in the Dom Jose with my Brother-in-Law from 14th to 19th May 2011. The Hotel has been tastefully and adequately refurbished and was extremely good value and I would definitely stay there again. The staff were friendly and helpful, though sometimes a little slow.... an Algarvian habit!!! Really, there were no complaints and many of the guests told us that they go back year after year. Very enjoyable.
