We have just returned from a 10 night stay at Dom Jose we were met by very helpful reception staff.
On arrival to our rooms we were more than happy with our room although on the small side , it also could have done with a fridge and tea making facilities because being on the 6th you can't keep going up and downstairs for a cold drink or a cup of tea when you are in your room.
We paid extra for a sea view and balcony and I am glad we did as the rooms without a sea view were at the back of the hotel and only had a small window .
The balcony had a solid brick wall instead of a glass partition so you had to stand to look at the wonderful views.
The breakfast was very nice but the little cocktail sausages didn't go down well with the guest .
If you are a fussy eater then don't go half board ,there isn't much choice but what there is is nicely cooked ,but all the meat dishes are in sauce and salty .
I must mention all the staff especially Anna, they were very friendly and attentive nothing was too much trouble .
Quarteira is a very quiet resort with nothing much going on unless you like the World Cup ,that's when the resort got a bit lively when the matches were on .
It's a perfect resort if you want to relax and wind down like we did after hectic work lives .
There is a gypsy market on in the resort on Wednesdays it's located near the lidl about an hour walk from the resort centre or take a taxi for €10 return its cheaper than the bus which is €20 return !!
There is a long promenade and beautiful beaches but the sea is freezing , the pool area is very small and you will have to be early to get a decent bed that gets the sun all day.
The transfer from the hotel is about 30 mins so you are not long on the bus .
