Pestana Dom Joao II
A Nice 4 Stars
The Pestana Dom Joao II is situated next to Alvor beach and is a really nice 4 star hotel. It has a nice restaurant and has entertainment at night. Even sometimes it is just a man and his organ or a show by the Pestana entertainment team.
Fantastic Hotel in perfect location
I stayed in December 2009 after the refurbishment of the hotel, very tastefull rooms, great food and very friendly staff. Could not have asked for more.
Unique Quality: Great beach location.
Directions: Torralta, Alvor
your safe isn't safe with Pestana
We went for 10 day relaxing holiday at the Pestana Dom Joao 2 (Alvor) but on day three it was anything but relaxing as we arrived back from a stroll into Alvor for an evening meal (lots of very good restaurants) to find that our room had been burgled (the door forced open as was the safe which was only held in with wood screws) and all our money , jewellery , camera and wallet had been stolen. The local police are hopeless (we had to spent hours in the station with interpreters to fill out forms which are only in Portugese) the staff were apologetic however 2 months later we are still waiting for Pestana's insurers Generali to get in touch and settle our claim (we're still €1000 out of pocket) and the hotel seems reluctant to do anything to help despite repeated requests. This is not what we expect from a 4 star hotel or from a company of Pestana's reputation.
So be warned keeping your valuables in the hotel safe isn't always a good idea.
No photos of this lovely area to post as the camera was stolen ....
Several rooms were also broken into ours was on the 5th floor !
Security around the hotel was poor as anybody could bypass reception by wandering in the rear of the hotel as there are no fences to stop them. We won't be using a Pestana hotel ever again.
And 6 months later neither they or their insurers Generali have been in touch to settle the claim !
Set next to the Pestana Dom Jao II Village this apears to be a converted block of residential apartments (there are other residential blocks nearby) but it has all you would expect from a Pestana hotel.
