Rooms:
The rooms are not very sound-proofed. You`ll wake up if someone walks in the hallway in the middle of the night. This was a problem.
Clean rooms, nice bathrooms with hairdryer.
Air conditioned.
Power regulated by inserted card right inside the room door. If you want a cooled down room after a long hot day at the beach, leave one card. The hotel does accept using air condition while staying at the beach.
Water temperature in the showers are not stable, so not safe for kids. Without touching the regulator it goes from boiling to ice cold and vice verca.

No refrigerator in the room. If you want cold sodas or beer, go to the local supermarket (supermercado, 10 minutes walking towards northwest) and buy a portable refrigarator box, fill it with ice and enjoy cold drinks at the beach and the room.

Tip: ASK FOR SEA VIEW UPGRADE.

Breakfast:
Breakfast consists of different bread and different cheese/salami/ham/Jam and some cereal.
It also has a two day cycle between sausage and bacon. The bacon is great, and the sausage does not look good, but tastes ok.
It`s always a line at the toaster, the hotel should upgrade this option with another toaster.
Juice does not taste good.

Tip: Squeese some ham and cheese between two loafes of bred, and put butter on the outside, before you send it through the toaster. If repeated 2-3 times you get that nice warm toast that all the beach bars serve.

Bar:
The bar is ok, but you`ll save 50% leaving the hotel for a drink or a beer.

Location:
Quarteira is a nice quiet low budget place that offers no glam, but you feel safe and satisfied if you`re in portugal for a vacation, not a party - see and be seen - journey.
Take a taxi to vilamoura for party and glam (5 euro) or a taxi to Faro for history, shopping and nice restaurants. (30 euro)

Beach: Nice beach, don`t bother spend 12 euros for a parasol and two beds. Take a taxi to a big shopping centre named apollonia, buy beach towels, parasol, bathingmatresses and beach chairs and you`ll have everything you need for a nice time in the beach right beside the hotel beach.

Security:
Hotel security is good. CCTV covers entrypoints and the reception is always manned by an employee.

Maid/cleaning:
Very nice cleaning staff. The always says good morning, they show discretion to privacy and the room is always spot free clean. Tip them, and you will make life a little better for a hard worker.

Employees/staff:
The staff in the reception is nice and helpful. Helena, a woman at the desk, should treat younger female guests with more kindness, but all in all we did not let this issue bother us.

Other:
The Hotel sell internet service for 10 euros a day. Ask to get this service included when upgrading to a sea view room.

Ask for Mammamia pizzeria, about 5 minutes from the hotel.
They are well known for their perfectly engineered thin crust pepperoni pizza. Make sure they will make it thin crusted and with extra pepperoni.

Room Tip: Sea view, but make sure you`ll get one of the rooms in 5, 6 or the top floor. The noise from the boa...

Dear Sir/Madam,
We thank you for your comments about the Hotel and we regret that your stay has not been totally satisfactory.
The satisfaction of our Guests it is very important for us and to know your opinion helps us to ensure the improvement of the quality of our services.
We have had a problem with water regulator that has already been solved and the cold/hot water is now stable.
Regarding the internet there must be lack of comunication because we had free internet access for all guests (24 Hour).
We took note of all your comments and we will do our best to correct all the mentioned points.
We hope to receive you again in Dom José Beach Hotel in a very near future.

DJ was the third hotel we stayed at while visiting Portugal. It has decent amenities and our room had a great view. This hotel is right in the middle of all of the exciting shops and restaurants on the boardwalk. I would recommend staying here, but I do have a few tips for you.

There is a private pool, but it is small and there are not many chairs. You also can't book the chairs, but people will put out their towel and hog the chair all day. Be weary of this. Bring your own towels! If you don't you will have to buy elsewhere as the hotel does not provide this service. Do not buy the towels on the boardwalk, but rather walk along the main street and find a cheap vendor as they sell the same towels for less than half price outside of the busier areas. The beach access is nice as well. If you are staying for awhile, consider buying an umbrella or bringing your own. Otherwise, you will have to rent their permanent umbrellas for 12 euro if you stay at the hotel. The reclining chairs come with a nice mat that is comfortable to relax on all day.

Food nearby at restaurants is great as well. Restaurants stay open way past midnight and people do not start their meal until almost 10pm. Expect dinner to last 2-3+ hours without a rush.

Room Tip: definitely pay a little more to have a sea view

A very modern hotel located, good rooms, staff very attentive. On top of beach and local facilities. Would recommend if planning a trip to this area of Portugal. Hotel is very clean and also near vilamora for a more lively night out.

10 days of pure relaxation, the area Quarteria that this hotel is in is a old fishing port so don't expect glitz and glamour, if you want that sort of holiday you need to stay at Vilamoura which is about a 30 minute walk or about 5 euro in a taxi but you will pay a premium there ( 2 cocktails 19 euro) .
Dom Jose is a good quality 3 star hotel, yes I agree tea making facilities in the room would be a bonus, but as we were fully aware of this fact before we booked we are not going to moan now, and yes the entertainment is not brilliant but being able to walk the lovely safe promenade every night or people watch on the hotel bar patio was enough entertainment for my partner and I.
I also agree with some other reviews that he buffet in the restaurant is quite small but I have to say that it was quality over quantity especially the meat section, the food was replemished continually and was always hot and fresh.
We travelled with Monach and everything from start to finish was organised brilliantly even the rep Trevor was not pushy at all ( unlike Thompsons) We booked the Guardiana River Cruise 57 euro each and I have to say it was an excellent trip and really good fun.
Just like to add a big thank you to Lana in the bar and Marco in the restaurant who both go out of there way to make everyone feel welcome and valued as a customer
I think this is one hotel we will be returning to.
To sum it all up, clean, comfortable very good value, very safe area and pure relaxation.

Just back from 12 days, 1st visit to Algarve. Really enjoyed it. Quarteira is lovely, loads of good restaurants. Stayed on B&B basis, which was great, plenty to choose from and tasty. Hotel very clean, nicely presented and friendly, helpful staff. Sea view well worth paying the extra. Nice to be overlooking the promenade especially at night when it's a bit busier. Tried most restaurants that were recommended on trip advisor and was not disappointed.

We stayed here for 4 days and were impressed by the cleanliness of the hotel, its styling and its fab location (right in the centre of things).
The staff are very good and the breakfast was also good. Its a very good 3 star hotel.
Negatives - the balcony - its very small and has a high wall so the sun doesnt actually shine onto the balcony during summer so didnt spend much time looking out onto the beach. Also a fridge and free wifi in the room would be very good additions.
If staying in Quarteira again, I would choose to stay here.
Tip - the parasols on the beach in front of the hotel are €14 a day, turn left and walk 80 metres to the next beach club where they are €10. Also a fab beach bar very nearby - great caipirinhas. The resort itself is nice, very portuguese and handy for an evening in Villamoura.
