Jomres is the first and most complete online booking toolkit for Joomla.

We've been in this business for 13 years, focussing on just the one product to make it the absolute best in it's class. Our competitors copy our features, but we do it first and we do it best.

Actively developed, this year alone we have released 14 new versions, that's an average of nearly 2 a month.


The Core system is free, if you want a simple booking or reservation system for your hotel or villa website then the free core system is all you need to get up and running. If you decide you want to add functionality later on then you can upgrade your Jomres membership which allows you to install any of the 160+ plugins available through the easy to use Jomres Plugin Manager. We also support third party developers, who offer 80+ plugins of their own.

There's no need to buy a plugin for managing multiple properties, as the multi-vendor functionality is built right into the free Core of Jomres.

Works on both Joomla and Wordpress, so if you want to switch from one system to another you can do so easily as the basic structure is exactly the same.

What's new in the free core?

  • Integrated tutorial videos Built-in, context sensitive videos show you how to do things such as install plugins and configure prices.
  • Dynamic widgets in the property manager's dashboard. Individual property managers can decide which widgets they can see in their dashboard.
  • Guest Blacklisting Individual properties can blacklist guests, which prevents them from making bookings. Guests can still use the contact form, which gives the propèrty manager the option to reach compromises with the blacklisted guests if required.
  • Room descriptions Do you offer boutique properties? Showcase individual rooms, with slideshow images and full descriptions.
  • Webhook and REST API built-in Create your own REST API plugins or use ours. Full documentation available in the online manual.
  • Property Completion monitoring If the property approvals feature is enabled, once the manager has followed the guided setup then site admins can see that it has been completed and is ready for review before approval.

All of this is free!

  • We listen to our users. The property manager's User Interface has been designed after consulting with real property managers to provide the most logical User eXperience possible.
  • Clear separation of Site and Property manager responsibilities All property management is done via the front end of the site, no need to allow managers to access the administrator area.
  • Totally multilingual. Use any multi-language plugin you want in Joomla. 45 language files are included by default. Unique label editing feature allows each property to have their own labels, and our Language Context feature allows different property types to have completely different language files.

  • Works for single property sites, or multiple properties.
  • Intelligent, Ajax driven reservation system.
  • Optimised for performance. our clients have successfully used it on websites with more than 30,000 properties listed.
  • Bookings per night or per day.

  • Dynamic Dashboard Property managers can add, remove and order widgets in their dashboard.
  • Guided setup Property managers are helped every step of the way to create, configure and market their properties.
  • Todo lists. They guide your property managers through setting up individual properties, from pricing through to property description and images.
  • Crisp, clean dashboard. Drag and click the calendar to create or modify a booking's room and dates, or drag away to easily cancel a booking.
  • Slick Media Centre. Images are exceptionally easy to upload, and you can upload images for the main asset image, property list slideshow, main property page slideshow and more. Small, medium and large images are created automatically and the slideshow for displaying images is fully responsive.
  • Calendars Several different calendars for displaying occupancies and arrivals and departures. Whether it's a villa or hotel, you'll know at a glance how busy you are.

  • Amend bookings. After a booking has been created, add extras to bookings while the guest is on-site, or completely change the booking's dates and prices.
  • Email templates. Property managers can customise the email templates to suit their individual properties.
  • Detailed invoicing. Shows all line items, including tax. Additional items added to invoices can have their own tax rates.
  • Taxes Accommodation and other services can each use their own tax codes.

  • Guests have their own accounts. Their details are remembered from visit to visit.
  • Guest dashboard. This allows them to easily see their bookings, invoices and favourite properties.
  • Contact form. If the guest's not ready to book right away, they can contact the hotel directly through a simple form instead.

  • Elegant Property List. Shows multiple views including List and Photo views, plus various sorting features and when a guest sets a budget then properties outside that budget are de-emphasised. Offers both infinite scrolling or paging to show search results.
  • Property comparison page Guests can compare up to 3 properties at a time.
  • Property feature icons. Create by property managers, they can be defined for all property types, or selected property types.
  • Review functionality. Reviews can either be automatically approved or not, guests can input comments and other reviewers can score a review's helpfulness.
  • Fully automatic exchange rate conversion. No configuration required at all, just request a free API key from OpenExchangeRates and Jomres will download the current rates daily and use them as needed.
  • Plugins plugins plugins. Using our plugin philosophy, all areas of Jomres functionality can be modified. This has helped to breed a healthy and diverse plugin community. Template overrides follow the standard Joomla formula, and you can have different templates for different property types.
  • Modular. It's designed to be third party plug-in friendly. See the extension specific plugins page here on the JED, or visit our Partners page.
  • Google maps well supported. Drag and drop pointers or type your address for the pointer to move. Choose to show POI's or not, and choose a map colour scheme that suits your site's theme. 30+ map styles so that the maps match your site's theme. Upload your own unique markers and assign them to different property types.
  • QR codes in both front and back end facing pages. Receptionists can scan a customer's booking printout and immediately book them in on arrival. Guests can scan QR codes to be taken to directions to the property.
  • Logging Detailed logging for the data-nerds out there. Extensive log files that are cycled regularly, and logging can be sent to a remote syslog server.
  • Recaptcha Uses the most modern No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA in contact forms to reduce spam.
  • Supports both Bootstrap 2 and Bootstrap 3, another first. Completely responsive. We have adhered to the BS2 and BS3 coding standards religiously, so Jomres will work in any Joomla 3 template. As always, where we lead other Booking systems will follow.

Don't offer another cookie-cutter booking site, be creative and innovate, using Jomres as the foundation you can build upon.


Good Base


Posted on 28 November 2017
Functionality

there is a lot of plugin's, modules. you will never find a product which can solve 100% of your problem.
but this one do it for 95% in our c

Ease of use

medium. need's a lot of time to understand logic and structure.
not easy to change or expand something in style or content

Support

very good. very fast.

Documentation

medium, but of course, it is not possible to document every different case of problem.
but a documentation of structure would be good.

I used this to: Online holiday accommodation rental portal.

Functionality

Countless plugins with several functionalities

Ease of use

It needs programming skills (in many cases), and lots of time and effort and a few support tickets to get to understand its structure.

Support

Sometimes effective some others not.

Documentation

Τhere is a lot of material there, some not up-to-date in the latest publications and some another very informative.

I used this to: the website of vacation rental properties, which I had to redesign in order to get rid of Jomres.
This component shouldn't be classified as a free one, as almost nothing in there is free
Owner's reply: Hi Villy,

I'm sorry you feel that way. I've reviewed your ticket history, the last one being in May. I can't find any instance where we have failed to resolve your questions for you, so I'm at a loss to know what more we could have done.

> This component shouldn't be classified as a free one, as almost nothing in there is free

We have no choice but to charge for plugin downloads and support, however the description on this page is 100% accurate, everything listed on there is free and available for download from our Github page for the plugin at https://github.com/WoollyinWalesIT/jomres

Functionality

An extremely versatile extension, options are abundant, and you almost definitely will not need all the possibilities that it offers.

Ease of use

Depends on what are you going to use it for, but it is quite easy to use once you get a hang of it.

Support

The best part of this extension. Booking components can't be idiot-proof but Vince and his support team will take care of your problems ASAP

Documentation

Extremely well documented, and if you don't understand something, the support team will help you.

I used this to: I use it for a booking portal with lots of different product categories, and it works like a charm. Don't waste your time with other components (I did...), there still isn't one out there that comes as close to perfection as this one does.

Functionality

The most comprehensive and flexible online booking / property rental solution I know. Offers more features than any other solution I found.

Ease of use

The quickstart packages are a very good start. Very easy for a single property sites. Naturally time needed to configure/customize a portal.

Support

Top & very fast. Vince, Aladar and also Rodrigo from Jomres Plugins & Development (JPD) are always a great help and find a solution quickly.

Documentation

Detailed online user manual and video tutorials available. I am not a programmer/developer and get along very well with it.

I used this to: Online holiday accommodation rental portal.

Functionality

Once I understood the makeup of Jomres, functionality became easy. It's the BMW and Mercedez Benz of the Villas and Hotel booking system

Ease of use

Even though I am a 68-year-old neophyte, I was able to figure it out. Youtube videos really helped.

Support

Wow, what can I saw. Vince was always there to guide me. professional and on time support

Documentation

Documentation is fine. I will recommend that they spend a full day and do some Video Recorder from installation to configuring Jomres

I used this to: to build websites from my clients in the travel and tourism industry in the Caribbean, especially, Jamaica.
Owner's reply: Thanks Theo.

Functionality

Beyond any other Joomla booking component. It can be built in many ways and flavors.

Ease of use

They offer quick-start package - installation and initial setup is easy. More experienced users can build and customize from the scratch.

Support

Great support. Note that compared to many other devs they still have forums. Personally I tend to avoid components without forums.

Documentation

Very detailed. If something is not clear they will happily answer it on forums.

I used this to: Tourist Agency. I wrote my 1st Jomres review in 2011. 6 yrs latter it still holds the 1st place. Firmly.
Owner's reply: Aw, now I'm blushing :D

Functionality

Highly flexible online booking and property management system (also with REST API and Webhooks!) that can you can host on your own server.

Ease of use

Very easy to get started with the Quickstart Packages. Certainly a bit of time involved if you want more than a single property installation

Support

The support is fast & excellent. Thank you so much!

Documentation

Very detailed user manual where all configuration options for frontend and backend are explained.

I used this to: Accommodation / Holiday Rental Portals.
Owner's reply: Rene's been a dream customer from the get-go. Intelligent, hard working and willing to learn. I wish I had a hundred customers like him. Best wishes for the project, Rene. I know it'll work well for you.

Functionality

As described a very complete booking tool which is highly configurable.

Ease of use

It has a steep learning curve as it has so many options. On the other hand there is good documentation and it works out the box.

Support

Cannot complain about this. They're quick, accurate and helpful. Usually a response within a few hours or within the same day

Documentation

Documentation is good with videos in most cases

I used this to: To run a portal that rents apartments for individual homeowners.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the great review mate, we appreciate it.

Functionality

Outstanding. It does everything I need and a whole lot more so I do not see the point in using something else. Also open and customisable.

Ease of use

Put effort in to get the best out of it but well worth it. Would prefer some minor things done differently but just my personal preference.

Support

Cannot remember when I last had to raise a support ticket. Mostly sorted any issues by looking at the forum/manual, also regular updates.

Documentation

Great manual. Also, youtube videos etc.

I used this to: Managing a small number of holiday-lets (SRPs). At first I developed some of my own plugins/customisations but now I don’t have time and feel I don't need to so run jomres quickstart more or less as it is delivered. My thanks to Vince (& Aladar) for a great and useful product.
Owner's reply: Hi Paul,

Thanks for the great review, glad we can be of help.

Functionality

Le funzioni sono moltissime, pertanto esse aggiungono delle difficoltà alle configurazioni semplici. Il free non serve, se non paghi niente.

Ease of use

Difficilissimo, l'ho usato per anni, basta! E' molto difficile farlo funzionare. Non sai dove sbagli. Occorre essere esperti in generale.

Support

Il supporto prima era eccezionale. Poi hanno posto dei limiti. Quindi paghi e speri che il forum ti aiuti.

Documentation

La documentazione c'è. Ma non risolve il problema. Conosco gente che ha abbandonato dopo aver pagato. Potete verificare dal forum!

I used this to: L'ho usato per anni. Sono diventato esperto. Ma ho abbandonato perchè ogni anno devi pagare. Se non paghi non aggiorni! E se non aggiorni Jomres non aggiorni Joomla! Mi sono trovato male quando mi sono trovato a ripagare due volte. In occasione dell'aggiornamento alla 3.5.
Owner's reply: This person used Jomres for 7 years (yay us for commitment) when what they really needed was a simple calendar.

> Functions are so many, so they add to the difficulty of simple configurations.
> Very difficult, I used it for years, enough! It is very difficult to run it. You do not know where you are wrong. You need to be experts in general.

See, as developers, we can't win. If there aren't enough features, we get slated. If there are too many then we're hammered for that too.

Damned if we do and damned if we don't.

> The first support was awesome. Then they set limits.

For some reason Gian Luca refuses to understand that support and ongoing development requires time and that somebody, somewhere, needs to pay for that. Without income everybody is poorer. We have to get proper jobs and you don't have great plugins for Joomla.

This plugin adds X-Clacks-Overhead: GNU Terry Pratchett to the headers of your Joomla website. See https://www.reddit.com/r/discworld/comments/2yt9j6/gnuterrypratchett/ for more information. A lot of what travelled on the Grand Trunk was called the Overhead. It was instructions to towers, reports, messages about messages, even chatter between operators, although this was strictly forbidden these days. It was all in code. It was very rare you got Plain in the Overhead. But now . . . 'There it goes again,' she said. 'It must be wrong. It's got no origin code and no address. It's Overhead, but it's in Plain.' On the other side of the tower, sitting in a seat facing the opposite direction because he was operating the up-line, was Roger, who was seventeen and already working for his tower-master certificate. His hand didn't stop moving as he said: 'What did it say?' 'There was GNU, and I know that's a code, and then just a name. It was John Dearheart. Was it a—' 'You sent it on?' said Grandad. Grandad had been hunched in the corner, repairing a shutter box in this cramped shed halfway up the tower. Grandad was the tower-master and had been everywhere and knew everything. Everyone called him Grandad. He was twenty-six. He was always doing something in the tower when she was working the line, even though there was always a boy in the other chair. She didn't work out why until later. 'Yes, because it was a G code,' said Princess. 'Then you did right. Don't worry about it.' 'Yes, but I've sent that name before. Several times. Upline and downline. Just a name, no message or anything!' She had a sense that something was wrong, but she went on: 'I know a U at the end means it has to be turned round at the end of the line, and an N means Not Logged.' This was showing off, but she'd spent hours reading the cypher book. 'So it's just a name, going up and down all the time! Where's the sense in that?' Something was really wrong. Roger was still working his line, but he was staring ahead with a thunderous expression. Then Grandad said: 'Very clever, Princess. You're dead right.' 'Hah!' said Roger. 'I'm sorry if I did something wrong,' said the girl meekly. 'I just thought it was strange. Who's John Dearheart?' 'He . . . fell off a tower,' said Grandad. 'Hah!' said Roger, working his shutters as if he suddenly hated them. 'He's dead?' said Princess. 'Well, some people say—' Roger began. 'Roger!' snapped Grandad. It sounded like a warning. 'I know about Sending Home,' said Princess. 'And I know the souls of dead linesmen stay on the Trunk.' 'Who told you that?' said Grandad. Princess was bright enough to know that someone would get into trouble if she was too specific. 'Oh, I just heard it,' she said airily. 'Somewhere.' 'Someone was trying to scare you,' said Grandad, looking at Roger's reddening ears. It hadn't sounded scary to Princess. If you had to be dead, it seemed a lot better to spend your time flying between the towers than lying underground. But she was bright enough, too, to know when to drop a subject. It was Grandad who spoke next, after a long pause broken only by the squeaking of the new shutter bars. When he did speak, it was as if something was on his mind. 'We keep that name moving in the Overhead,' he said, and it seemed to Princess that the wind in the shutter arrays above her blew more forlornly, and the everlasting clicking of the shutters grew more urgent. 'He'd never have wanted to go home. He was a real linesman. His name is in the code, in the wind in the rigging and the shutters. Haven't you ever heard the saying “A man's not dead while his name is still spoken”?' GNU Terry Pratchett
