Having read previous reviews I opted to give the Dom Jose a go for our budget mini-moon, on main entrance is on a back alley which isn't great, but you will only every use this for taxi and transfers. The beach side entrance is far more pleasant.
On entering the building the reception area feels spacious, clean and modern. The desk staff spoke decent English and where very helpful.
Our room was on the 2nd floor and had a sea view (worth the extra cost!). The room was clean and of a decent size. The only big down falls where the cheap mattress and the doors aren't sealed like in some hotels so noise from the hallway seeps in, particularly annoying at night. So if you are a fussy sleeper, maybe not the place for you. Saying that my wife and I slept fine every night.
The pool area is a proper light sun trap, but is fairly small and fills up quickly. But the beach is only 10m away! The dinning area is clean and comfortable, the breakfast is decent and the drinks prices are ok.
Overall for a 3 star hotel at the right price I would recommend it
