A fantastic 10 day holiday. Hotel fully refurbished. Lovely bedroom. Bar/lounge lovely. Dining room very nice. Loved it. Very flat outside made walking easy. Didn't want to come home. Maybe the food could have been a bit hotter, but plenty of choice. Would definately return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor bedroom if you are booking a sea view. We were on first floor and full view was...

We have just returned from a very relaxing week here .We stayed in room 501,which had a wonderful view of the beach but was small, , with a small balcony. .
The bathroom had a great shower, and was very modern, and shampoo and shower gel ect supplied which was a nice touch. Sound proofing in this room was quite poor especially from room above us, and from people coming and going in the lift outside our door.The room was spotlessly clean and cleaned every day.The air conditioning system in the room was excellent too. there are no tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms, and wifi and safe have a charge. The hotel itself is cute,smallish but spotless, and a very good 3 star hotel. The food was good generally. Breakfast buffet consisted of scrambled egg one morning fried egg the next. tiny sausages one morning, streaky bacon the next. usually mushrooms, tomato, or beans. breads, yogurt. cereals, cheeses, juices( not the real thing),tea coffee ect, so quite an adequate breakfast. Evening meal consisted of a buffet of 2 meats, 1 fish dish, usually 2 vege, 1 pasta dish, and a salad counter with a variety of cold salads.There were usually about 4 desserts one of which was always fresh fruit salad. there was also 2 varieties of icecream available .While the amount of food was very adequate , if you did happen to come down for your evening meal after 8.30pm it was often the case that dishes were not replenished , especially desserts, which was a pity as evening meal hours are till 10pm. Overall we enjoyed the food which for most of the time was excellent but note there is no tea or coffee in the restaurant after the evening meal.
The best feature of this hotel is its proximity to the beach.literally on the beach just separated by a promenade.The hotel is well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Get a room with sea view.

Stayed there in the begining of May, firs time in Portugal. Really enjoyed Quarteira, nice and quiet town, not much night life there. Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, was nice and clean. Most of the people who stayed there was old, like a nursing home, but it didnt bother me. The location- on the beach. Was no ambrelas or sun beds there, which would be brilliant. By the pool you need to be early, most of the people leave their tawels on the beds, then go for breakfasts..
Our room wasnt cleaned once in all 4 nights we were there.
Would stay there again, but only for the beach and good weather. Quarteira is brilliant for a cheap holiday, not over crowded with tourists and thats why is much cheaper then in Vilamoura.

Room Tip: Any room is good, didnt stay much in it :)

Just arrived back in Dublin today and because our experience of the hotel was so good, I thought it would be a good idea to write a review in appreciation. Everything about our stay there was first class. All the staff were friendly and helpful. It is a modern clean environment and feels superior to its three star rating. Our room was huge ..I know some have complained about the size of their rooms particularly the ones with a balcony facing the sea. If you want a big room go for room 513 (at the back), it had a large floor space, two big single beds joined together, a decent sized bathroom with shower and bath and a long couch against the wall. The majority of the guests are of a mature age and are mostly made up of English, Irish and some German but there was also some younger ones there as well. The hotel provides a swimming pool and bathing area which gives a welcome shelter from the breeze. However, you have to get there early to claim your place as the loungers get snapped up fairly quickly. The bar has a happy hour from 9-10pm which we never bothered with as there are plenty of cheap bars nearby but we did use it for our night cap. It is decent enough, plenty of space and gets quite lively. Breakfast consists of cold meats, cheese, breads, sauteed mushrooms, grilled half tomatoes, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, bacon, beans and mini frankfurter sausages. They also had a variety of fruit- sliced oranges, cubed water melon and pineapple as well as a selection of Danone yogurts, jams, cereal and honey. Cereal consisted of Muesli and corn flakes. Brown and white sliced bread was also available for you to toast along with croissants and rolls. The brekkie was tasty and the highlight for me. If I had one minor quibble it would be the elevators. They are quite cramped and slow so we just used the stairs most times. There is a decent selection of books left by other guest underneath the stairs if you fancy a read by the pool. Overall an excellent place to stay and can't praise it highly enough.

Room Tip: Go for room 513, it might not be facing the sea but it is huge. Claim a spot early at the swimming p...

Check in went without a hitch and the check in staff were very friendly. We had booked a standard land view room but it was a real disappointment, very small, no balcony and located on the first floor immediately above the kitchen. We went back to reception to see if there were other rooms available and were told that maybe in 3 days a sea view room could be offered instead at a supplement. We stayed in this room for the first night but after being woken at 5am by the noise from the kitchen we went back to reception to seek a room change. At this point we were told that we could move to a superior room on the third floor at a supplement which we immediately paid and so glad we did! The reception staff were very helpful during the second stage of this process so a little disappointing that they could not have been so the night before.

Anyway, from here on in we could not fault the staff of the hotel. We went the week before half term so the majority of the guests were older which made for a quiet week. Breakfast was very samey by the end, scrambled or fried eggs and tomatoes every day with local sausage or bacon alternating days and the occasional appearance of baked beans. Also the usual fruit, cereals, meat and cheeses were also available. The homemade bread was a highlight.

All in all a very enjoyable stay, the hotel was very clean throughout and the staff were very pleasant. Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a sea view or superior room and try to avoid rooms 101-115 as kitchen noise likely...

Just stayed for 3 nights at the Dom Jose Hotel with my daughter. We had a lovely stay - hotel very clean and tidy. Modern rooms with great shower. Breakfast was buffet style with good choice - even a fussy 23 year old enjoyed her breakfast !
Pool area quite small but adequate and very well kept. Sea and beach area directly across from the hotel so that was a huge bonus. A lovely walk to Vilamoura takes half an hour but well worth it. Would definately recommend and visit again.

Room Tip: Sea view with balcony is well worth the extra money. Room 112 was lovely

One of the best 3 star hotels we have visited. Stayed for B&B for two weeks and had a lovely time. Couldn't be better situated, separated from the beach only by pedestrianised prom. Breakfasts buffet style catering for all tastes. Rooms clean and modern and all public areas spotlessly clean. Only gripes - no tea/coffee making facilities in rooms and that decking round scorching hot.
