I was on a golfing trip with 11 fellow golfers. Hotel location was good - handy for local Irish pub & restaurants ( very good) All inclusive in this hotel was not good value for money. Food choice was limited & I was expecting better. It was more like mass produced canteen food. Due to this we chose to eat... More

We were based here during our Ramblers walking holiday. The hotel is quite big, with a lovely pool area We had breakfast and a lunch at the restaurant which was good The room was big and kept clean, but being on the main road was a bit noisy and the aircon wasn't the best Staff were really lovely in all...

Just had two nights here for the second time and am still happy. No problems at all, nice place and very handy for the town centre. Pool and gardens very nice and peaceful to chill out and unwind. Staff were all very professional yet friendly and helpful.

spent a week in late September at this hotel. what a severe disappointment, the hotel is tired and dated, my bedroom was very basic and unclean. but the biggest regret was the food, salads were as dull as dishwater, as a non meat eater there was only ever 1 fish option ( baked cod was so tough I could have...

My husband and I are just back from an eight-day stay in the Porta Nova in Tavira. It is listed as a four-star hotel - but I think that Four-Star Tourist Hotel would better suit. It certainly fell short of our expectations. On the positive side the location is good, being on the edge of the town - though some... More

This hotel is supposed to be 4 star? It's a complete joke. It isn't even worth 2 I believe. Rooms are rubbish and the service is one of the worse I ever experienced hotel-wise. To start, we booked a double bed and could only get 2 single beds. We had no towels at my arrival, and I only noticed after... More

Stayed on all inclusive basis. Allowed to check in early and go to the restaurant for lunch. All meals are a buffet service with lots of choice. Plentiful salads, fish and meat for main courses and large choice for deserts. Snacks available around the large pool. In the evenings the panoramic bar had great views over Tavira.

Stayed in room 305. For what we paid, the hotel represents good value. It's basic but clean with reasonable facilities. On the downside, staff were not helpful and stood around talking keeping us waiting. The greatest problem was noise. We heard everyone coming or leaving the hotel at whatever time of the night. A neighbouring property had dogs that barked... More

I have just returned from a weeks holiday at the porta Nova. I had read numerous reviews and was starting to get worried as there were a few negatives. I was pleasantly surprised, the rooms were very clean albeit basic. The rooms could do with updating, tv's are probably older than me! Although you don't go away to watch tv... More

I’m not sure where some of the more negative comments about this hotel come from to be honest. I’ve stayed in far worse hotels that haven’t attracted half the negative reviews of this one (especially one in Albufeira I could mention). I stayed here at the end of August for 4 days room only and agree with those comments from... More
