All of the rooms, are amazing, we had a chance to take a tour of most of them. This place was built in 1680. Margarida was a wonderful hostess; this was once a farm and was turned into a hotel/ inn by her grandfather. I love that its a family business. I could easily have lingered on the grounds and...

Staid for a couple of days in September and really enjoyed my stay. The hotel is a cute family owned "finca" with an Andalusian style. The gardens, the flowers and the fountains makes it very cosy and beautiful. The staff and the owners are very nice and helpful and really make you feel at home. They speak several languages and...

This charming property was the farm belonging to the grandfather of the sisters who now own it. Its lovely old but well-kept buildings are set around a courtyard with lots of space for guests to relax. It's just a short walk to the center of Tavira, yet feels completely separate. A very authentic feeling of an old estate.

We booked the hotel at a fairly late stage and were not disappointed. The hotel is a fantastic find. Top quality accommodation. Staff very friendly. On the edge of the town but like being in the country. Large grounds with trees, ponds and total peace and quiet! No complaints about anything. A wonderful, peaceful holiday........cannot wait to go back to... More

Great time had at this place, very relaxing, really nice surroundings. We stayed in the "Pansy" room which was right next to that quirky pool, could not fault anything except we would have loved a pot of tea at breakfast, we had to make our own-one of the things that made this trip so memorable I suppose ! We love... More

The Quinta is an oasis in a newly built up area. It is round the corner from the rail station, not far from the town centre, and the large garden and aspect is charming and the farm complex has been sensitively converted. My sister and I were transported to the old Algarve we knew and loved of the 1960s, including... More

The city of Tavira grew basically towards Quinta do Caracol surrounding it with new buildings. However Quinta do Caracol did not loose much of its original rustic looking and atmosphere. We just stayed at "Jasmim" room. A spacious, clean and really great room overlooking the gardens, the old washing water tank (now a swimming pool) and the old well. We... More

Although I agree with the other reviewers that the gardens and setting are lovely, I was not happy with my stay here. After I checked in, I was told that the wifi wouldn't work in my room, which was a problem because I had planned to use it in the evening. In fact, wifi only worked sporadically for me anywhere...
