This Hotel is located just out of the town centre but only a short walk away. Hotel was very clean staff were very friendly and the facilities were excellent, evening entertainment was good fun. Came away for a short quiet break and this is exactly what we got. Room was exactly what we paid for basic but very clean and... More

Last stayed here three years ago - hmmm - what's changed? Staff have new uniforms, much more up to date. All public areas/bedrooms freshened up with a good coat of paint. Breakfast still great - some new additions - fried eggs cooked to order; crepes also available; all hot food now covered over; additional coffee making machines. Free wifi in... More

A good location- quiet, but near all the restaurants etc We stayed here for 3 nights in March and liked having a sunny room. The south west side might be too hot in summer. There are a variety of rooms facing either internally over the swimming pool or the roads outside. Select with care!

This moderate sixes hotel is conveniently situated in the eastern Algarve town of Tavira. The buffet breakfast is excellent and the staff and friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The best thing is that it is just a few hundred metres to the local town bars,restaurants and shops. The houses have traditional tiles and the streets...

This is a large hotel with 268 rooms. Our room was comfortable and clean with a good shower in the bathroom. It overlooked a fuel station, a car park and a flyover and was on the shaded side of the hotel. As this was February and we were on a walking holiday this didn't bother us as it was quiet... More

This hotel is liberally decorated with prints of post impressionist artists, my bedroom had large prints of pictures by Raoul Dufy and Paul Klee. It is a spacious and comfortable building and all the staff are really friendly and helpful, however the buffet meals are rather monotonous and I would only book breakfast if I visited again. The salt pans... More

Just got back after 5 nights at the Vila Gale Tavira on a Golf Break. The hotel was ideal for our stay with very clean rooms, plenty of hot water and a good breakfast. Its location in town is ideal with all the local amenities within a short walk. The bedrooms are comfortable but maybe could do with a little... More

Good hotel, very clean and well located near the centre of the town. Rooms over the atrium reception can be noisy (unless you plan to be the last ones to bed). We asked to move and this was accommodated without any fuss. Only ate in the restaurant once, fairly typical buffet but there are plenty of places to eat within... More

More than most! In the winter you need to be overlooking the pool on the inside of the hotel but on the side nearest the river. That will give you sun all day which is vital in the winter. Avoid rooms facing outside of the hotel unless you like looking at roads and petrol stations. I reviewed this hotel 2... More

Had a marvellous two weeks in this hotel. Our beds in our sunny room were very comfortable and the food delicious. The staff were helpful and friendly. It was good location for walking and bird watching, also for exploring the historic town.
