“Nice, Clean, Great location but”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Lovely modern Hotel in a great location across from the beach with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.

Unfortunately there were a few minor details that irritated.

1. Internet access - costs 10 euros per day extra.
2. TV channels - Only english programmes were 3 news channels.
3. Small pool area, not much space

As a result couldn't recommend it for more than a few nights

The hotel is ideally situated on the beach, along a quiet pedestrian road. I had a room with balcony and front sea view and I've slept with open fensters, listening to the sea waves the 4 nights long, it was very relaxing. The location near the bus station is very convenient to go to Faro or Albufeira. There is a small supermarket near by and lots of cafés and restaurants along the sea side. The staff is very helpful and nice. The room to recommend is 101, 3 beds, shower, may be a little small for three people for a long stay, but was perfect for me for 4 nights!! Amazing sea view...

Room Tip: Ask for the room 101, above the restaurant, but very quiet, nobody above or on the right side..

We stayed here for 3 nights in May with fantastic weather. The room was spotless and comfortable with nice furnishings. Breakfast was pretty standard european fare but certainly plenty of choice with hot and cold options. Not many beds round the pool but we never had a problem getting a bed at any time of the day as the majority of the guests were older and didn't sunbathe.
There is a fantastic seafood restaurant just around the corner which serves a huge mixed seafood platter in a boat, 55 euros for 2 but worth every penny.

Have just returned from a most enjoyable weeks holiday at the Dom Jose with my wife, daughter and 18 month old granddaughter. The Dom JOse is a nice! modern and spotlessly clean hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Only downside to this hotel is the disabled ramps which are far to steep, it's a pity because a lot of thought has obviously been put into the Dom Jose to make it the hotel it is a little more thought with regard to wheelchair users would be good. Having said that it did not spoil a most enjoyable stay and we would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room.

Second time back to Dom Jose on B&B. Excellent location, right on the beach.
Had room on the 7th floor with amazing sea views. Rooms bit small but nicely decorated.
Great hotel and lovely staff.
Restaurants, cafés and nice bakery, all within walking distance.
Within walking distance to Vilamoura (20-25 mins) or you can catch the bus at the bus station which is nearby.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are fantastic. Requesting a high floor room is a must!

Having read some great reviews for this hotel we were looking forward to going to the Dom Jose. We were not disappointed. The location of this hotel is fantastic. We booked a sea view room and as most people say it was well worth it. The rooms are not very big, but they are decorated nicely(especially the bathroom.) The weather was glorious every day, a lot warmer than we were expecting. The breakfast was good but we were glad we had opted for bed and breakfast as there was a vast choice of restaurants close by. The promenade was lovely to walk along, nice and flat with beautiful views out to sea. Rooms cleaned everyday and the reception staff were very good. There are only 2 small lifts so we were glad we were only on the 2nd floor. Villamoura Marina was lovely and only cost approx 6 euros each way in a taxi. The local bus station is 5 minutes walk from the hotel and we went to Faro and to Olhos D'Agua both taking about 30 minutes. It is easier to buy a return ticket from the station. Overall, I highly recommend Quarteira and the Dom Jose Beach Hotel.

Room Tip: Sea Views are lovely and worth the extra cost.

Just back from a long weekend break. Really friendly hotel right on the beach. We had a room on 6th floor with a sea view, so amazing sunsets and views. Beach a little steep so not really suitable for peope with limited mobility. Sea, to say the least, was freezing with quite strong currents so didn't entice me in!! We were on B & B and breakfast was adequate and always being replenished. We didn't have an evening meal so cannot comment on that. Really nice walk into Villamoura, which is beautiful and well worth a visit. Would definately return.

Room Tip: High Floor Sea View a must for great views.
