I had a fabulous stay a Calcada Guesthouse. I opted to be collected from the airport which saved a lot of hassle. I received a warm welcome and was given a full tour and intro to the house and most importantly the wifi password! Wifi connection was good and I had access throughout the house and on the roof terrace.... More

We felt at home the moment that we stepped through the door. The hotel is an easy walk from the bus station. We had the twin room which is spacious and comfortable. The common areas provide comfortable seating as well as free coffee and tea. The wifi works well. The owner Andy gave us great travel suggestions.We thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Our stay at the Calcada guest house was perfect. You couldn't ask for more from the hosts Andy and Tamsin and their lovely guest house. We arranged to be picked up from the airport and on our first day immediately hit the beach by hoping on the boat which is about a 5-10 minute easy walk from the guest house.... More

We spent 4 nights here and really loved it. Andy was a great host - really helpful but also left you to your own devices. Our room was very comfortable but the highlights were the roof terrace and breakfast. We sat on the roof terrace at night and watched bats fly across the town (they also have a fridge that... More

A seamless wonderful holiday in Tavira, from the transfer to Calcada Guesthouse from beginning to the end, - a memorable stay. Hosts Andy and Tamsin and staff member Daniel went out of their way to ensure every request was catered for. An exceptional Guest house, quiet, impressive, spotless and breakfasts not to be missed, served on the roof terrace. Ideal... More

What a find! Hidden away in old Tavira, the Calcada Guesthouse is a real gem. Great room overlooking a central courtyard with spotless en-suite. The reception area, where you can make hot drinks, is comfy and welcoming and best of all is the breakfast on the roof terrace served by the friendliest of hosts.

Andy was a great host at this wonderful little b&b. it is located in the centre of town close to the river but was still quiet outside our bedroom window. We paid the extra for breakfast which was well worth it. So glad we chose Tavira and calcada guesthouse for the Algarve part of our trip

Spent a lovely week at the Calcada Guesthouse this last summer. Tamsin and Andy were delightful hosts. The apartment was clean, pleasant, and comfortable. Do the breakfast. The location is near everything, yet quite. This is where I will return to when visiting Tavira.

A little difficult to find but well worth the effort - great value for money, healthy breakfast, accommodation recently renovated to a good standard - quiet (so is Tavira) but very close to the town centre. - towels changed daily - friendly owner/s and staff.
