Another stay at this hotel (this is our 6th stay). Fabulous elevated position with panoramic views. We stayed on a room only basis so can't comment on the food - it's a short downhill walk to the pretty little square where there are several restaurants and it's great to sit and have breakfast. Tavira is a superb old Portugese town,... More

We arrived at this hotel at 8pm ish only to discover that they had no notice of our booking. A very pleasant young man quickly assured us that there was no problem and had us booked in very quickly to a lovely pool facing room on the first floor. Even on first impression I was happy. The room was clean... More

Tavira is a beautiful town, full of charm & a sense of old Portugal. Unfortunately this cannot be said for this hotel. First impressions are good. Polite front of house but that is where it ends. We could not sleep all night as noise from adjoining rooms's occupants could be heard loud & clear. In the middle of the night... More

We stayed here at the start of our holiday, it was very nice, the rooms were spacious and clean, and the staff were very helpful and accommodating to our needs, the pool area was lovely with plenty of sun loungers that weren't squashed together around the pool, the roof top bar was very romantic to sit with our drinks and...

With living in Tavira I always take first time visitors to the city, to the roof top bar in the hotel. Bar is open to non-residents and gives a spectacular panoramic view of Tavira, Atlantic ocean, and surrounding area. It provides a perspective of how the city is set out. Bar prices are reasonable for a hotel, e.g bottle of... More

On the top of a hill, this hotel claims 4 stars, probably one too many really as there are some things that need sorting out. The bed covers were threadbare with holes in them, however the sheets were clean and changed daily. The TV was from last century and only had a few channels, only two in English but basically...
