Our trip to Tavira came at the end of a two-week top-to-bottom trek around Portugal. We felt a trip to the Algarve would cap our Portugal trip with some R&R time by the pool and a relaxing vacation town. We chose Vila Gale Tavira based on reviews. The hotel does well for what it aims to do well: Cater to... More

We stayed in the same room (1037) as SmithS&B (the previous reviewer). We can confirm that we used a bottle of water and left the other two, so certainly preceded them. We didn't find the room excessively noisy, but very occasionally heard young children and furniture moved. We also found the shower tended to wet the floor. The room was... More

Very central hotel in Tavira, walking distance from city center and all the restaurants in town, except for "Vela 2" restaurant. Beach only reachable by boat (line boat) or by car. In July there was a very quiet ambiance, very relaxing. Friendly staff. A little too expensive for what you get. Anyway, it's a nice hotel and a secure buy.

We booked a last minute, 5 night break at the Vila Gale Tavira in August. We arrived just before midday and we were told to come back around 2:30pm as the room wasn't ready! They reluctantly took our cases after I had to actually ask if they would!! When we finally got checked in after a nice stroll around Tavira,... More

Spent a week here with the gf and really were pleasantly surprised. Generally I have found Portuguese and Spanish '4 Star' hotels barely the equivalent of an Irish 3 Star, but this place was definitely up there. The outside is very impressive, immaculately cut lawns and hedges etc. On entering it is huge with plenty of wide open spaces, very... More

I was at this resort hotel for 7 nights in August. After i had some small "issues" I went to reception and was immediately introduced to the hotel General Manager (Elia) to address my issues. She was completely understanding and professional saying if one siongle guest was in anyway unhappy then so was she. She immediately resolved any issues i... More

Didn't stay in the hotel, but dined for lunch. Had a lovely cheese salad with strawberry compote - beautiful. Drinks also superb in a lovely setting. Pool very clean and sun beds plentiful. Very good value for money.
