Firstly let me say that this place is exceptionally cheap, in a beautiful location and was a good laugh.
However, it needs a bit of love and attention. On arrival reception staff were very good and we were able to check in 2 hrs before normal check in time. The apartments are massive with a big kitchen, roomy bedrooms and really good bathrooms.
But the beds, oh dear. It was like concrete. We stayed 2 nights and had to use the cushions off the sofa the second night. We were all exhausted when we left.
Breakfast- pure comedy, we ordered toast and eggs, the toast came first before the eggs and we had to pay for the butter on our toast before the eggs came. The guy at breakfast wouldn't let us have for coffee ( self serve) before we paid for our first cup, I should add we were using our own coffee. It was a laugh!
The pool was very nice although we used the beach.
I would stay here again if the beds were changed because the location was perfect and the views over the field very pretty, we saw peacock's, piglets and all sorts of different birds. Only a ten minute walk from the beach.
Bad and Lazy Attitude

I never stayed in this hotel. But intended to spend a couple of days with a group of 6 to 8 friends in here. I had some confusion in regards to some services provided by this resort, So I called them directly. A Lady answered my call and there seemed to be some distortion while she was talking. She bluntly told me to Send an email and stopped responding, though the call was still on. I then disconnected the call and called back atleast 5 to 6 times and she never answered the phone. What a Lazy front office staff. I never bothered to checkout this resort again and am looking for different options.

Nice place atmosphere . The rooms are also good n spacious with near by beaches . Only thing need to improve is food service and quality . Time taken to deliver food is too long nearly one and half hour.

Dreadful Hotel, Dirty.

Hotel SAN Joao is a no go unless you want a very low budget holiday. It was dirty in desperate need of upgrading. In the bedroom we didn’t have a wardrobe or draws ....in the bathroom was just a light bulb with bare wires showing...the beds were dreadful very uncomfortable, bed linen was all bobbly and the pillows were dirty. They were cleaned but at an exceptionally low standard. Definitely not worth the money they charge even for a budget hotel.The kitchens were ill equipped with filthy curtains. Definitely not recommended. Could not wait to get home to be honest.
The only positive remark is Brice the owner was very accommodating and the staff were friendly and helpful.
Needs upgrading to a better standard in all of the bedrooms also the whole building outside.
My daughter rented a room with a corner bath which had a hole on the bottom of the bath and scratched and dirty.
Do not recommend this hotel at all. Do not let the photos fool you.
