Reviewed 17 June 2013

I am writing this review on behalf of my parents.. They stayed at this hotel for a week in June. Here's their review. We are a older couple and this hotel made our holiday perfect. The room was spotlessly clean, and very comfertable. The location was amazing, right on beach front, with lovely prom to walk along, it is a beautiful relaxing place to visit.
May we thank the reception staff for being very helpful.
If you do eat out try the Joker pub, a lovely English Pub serving homemade food.
We will definitely return to the Dom Jose, hopefully September.

myself and my dad have just returned from the dom jose hotel in quarteria after booking in for 10 days 5th june -14th june .we both had a fantastic holiday,the hotel was spotless the maids worked really hard and every one we spoke to spoke back, some staff it was hard to get them to understand but the majority did ok .. the rooms were a bit on the small size and lacking in storage space /draws but spotless clean bedding, towels, floors . the bathroom was beautiful ! you can hire a safety deposit box from reception for 10 euros but you do get that back when you check out ,..we were only on bed and breakfast as neither of us eat that much so what was on offer was sufficient :tea, coffee, milk ,orange juice, pineapple juice, toast, jams preserves ,rice crispies ,cornflakes. muesli, mixture of fresh fruit ,yogurts and hot ,beans or mushrooms, scrambled egg ,fried egg ,sausage, bacon and grilled tomato , all we quickly re filled if empty , you can have an evening meal for 13.50 euros(3 course ) or they serve snacks in afternoon in the bar area which we tried and they were very nice specialy the tuna sandwiches and tuna and feta cheese salad ..the entertainment could be better but you can find good entertainment in vilamoura ,lots for the younger ones ,the pool is small but deep (I wouldnt recommend it for the younger ones or those not a strong swimmer) the beautiful beach is a stones throw from the hotel so that was used a lot by familys and they life guards on duty all day .there are plenty of little shops all along the front, and bars cafes ,restraunts ice cream parlours The front is all flat and pedestrianized so I found it ideal as since suffering from a stroke I am in a wheel chair 99% of the time so this is totally suitable for wheel chair users/ the disabled .we found a lovely pub for our sunday lunch lovely roast beef or lamb ,chicken pork all served with fresh local veg and a good Yorkshire pudding ! drinks were cheap too a pint of lager was 2 euros it was called FANTASIA and it was just along from the dom jose hotel ,You can walk into vilamoura which is a lovely place ,great to sit around the harbour and it only takes approx a 15-20 minute walk to get there, One other good thing is it only about 20 minutes drive from the airport, .All in all this could easily be a 4 star hotel it just needs 1 or 2 "tweeks" this hotel and resort was so great we are booking up to go again in august or September if we can get in ! I am sorry for the long review but there is so much to comment on ,,all good ,We would highly recommend this hotel ,pay the little extra for a sea view and balcony it is well worth it ,we were on floor 3 overlooking the pool ,one other tip for the ladies there is no dressing table mirror so I took a hand mirror but bought a bigger one in town for only 3 euro

Room Tip: pay that little extra for a balcony and sea view.., room 318 was a good room :)

I stayed in The Dom Jose in May. It was a nice hotel. The pool area was grand very small area not enough deck chairs. The food in the hotel was of very poor quality. I would not eat in the restaurant only for breakfast it did the job. I would not go near it for lunch or dinner. In the bar at night there were not enough staff. There was a girl there running around. Her name was Svetlaha. She was very nice hard working girl and very friendly very good at her job. There was two lovely girls on reception called Vilma and Barbara very helpful and very good at recommending place to see and eat in. There was another woman on reception and was so rude abusive I have never seen anything like this before. Her name was Helena I would stay well clear of her.Overall I would not stay in the Dom Jose again and would not recommend it to people at all.

Room Tip: Sea view and high floor.

On arrival I was really surprised. From the outside it doesn't look that great, however as you step through the glass doors you see straight across the bar area with its mirrored columns and have a fabulous view of the sea and beach through the wide expanse of floor to ceiling windows. Staff on the whole friendly and helpful, although getting served at the bar can take some time, especially during happy hour!
I can see why previous comments have said book a see view room, not only do you get the great view, but also a balcony which you do not have on the other side. Sadly for us there were no available rooms for us to upgrade to.
The rooms are very modern and quite spacious compared to some I have been in. I must say however that the beds are rock hard, but you get used to it. If you have a twin but want a double, do ask, as they will put the beds together and put on a huge super king sized mattress.
There is a long mirror in the room and a large mirror in the bathroom which has excellent lighting and a hair dryer with a shaver style socket which you can plug straighteners into. I say bathroom, but our room only had a shower, which was fine for me. There was a desk/dressing table but no mirror above but two power points.
If you like a cup of tea bring your own kettle, there is no fridge or mini bar in the room which is a bit of a pain for water, milk etc. however we found mini uht milk's (like you get in hotels in uk) in the nearby supermarket.
There is a safe, but there is a charge of €10 per week and €10 refundable deposit. Wifi is also available, you can get 24 hours for €10 which if you use for an hour then log off, you still have 23 hours, so €10 lasted a week for us.
The pool is a lovely area, but there are not that many beds for the number of guests staying, however with the beach in front of the hotel and plenty of beds there shouldn't be a problem, only drawback being the pool beds are free but the beach is €7 per person per day.
The restaurant is a bit like a canteen, not much atmosphere, but actually quite good value for money at €16 per head for three course, help yourself meal, not very inspiring but quite tasty.
The resort is pretty quiet in June and not particularly great for younger couples as there isn't much to do. It is very popular with the Portuguese holiday makers, so if you are looking for British bars etc. you may be disappointed, but if you are just looking to chill out, great.

Room Tip: Sea view get a balcony

I have recently organized a large event using Dom José conference facilities and it all went smoothly and exactly as planned. Apart from the fact that the conference room has little natural light and some participants complaining about poor ventilation, the service was excellent, everything was exactly as scheduled, the staff was very responsive and friendly and the food was very good, all at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend the hotel if you are planning an event in Quarteira.

We had a short stay, hotel very well located, friendly staff, good clean rooms, Breakfast was good with a wide variety. Need to have better parking arrangements for those with cars. Also would expect a beachfront hotel to supply beach towels

This hotel was recommended to us and I have to say enjoyed the stay. Hotel was clean and tidy. Staff very help full. Bedrooms very nice but could have done with a kettle. We will be back that's for sure. Would pass hotel details on to friends.
