Just got back after a 5 night stay. The hotel is basic, but clean, wouldn't say it's 4star but has most things you need. Staff are polite but not overall friendly, just did their job. The pool area was decent size, and we always managed to get sunbeds, even on our first day, when we arrived around midday. The panoramic... More

Booked a room for aprox, 35 euro pp a night in august. Hotelroom is good and verry clean. Good location in tavira and the hotel has a nice pool and gym. The only bad thing are the prices of the drinks in the poolbar. These are way to high for potugese standards. overall nice stay!

My wife and I have just returned from a late minute holiday to Tavira. It has been out fourth trip to this lovely town, we really do like it. This was the first time we'd stayed at this particular hotel, and had a good time overall. It most certainly is not a 4 star hotel by UK standards (no tea/coffee... More

Lovely hotel, room is basic but very clean with a fridge and large balcony. We went room only - and were able to eat out in some lovely restaurants and it was all very reasonably priced! Tavira is beautiful. The roof top bar at the hotel is a must - lovely view from up there. We can't fault the holiday... More

Returned from this hotel yesterday after 5 nights all inclusive & was very impressed. The room was cleaned every day & had a nice balcony overlooking the front of the hotel. I wouldn't call the pool large but there were plenty of sun loungers & plenty enough space to swim. The town of Tavira is definitely NOT a lively, bustling,... More

We booked this holiday three days before we went, thus making it an exciting trip. We flew from Leeds Bradford Airport, which is a nice friendly airport. Having never heard of Tavira before we booked, we approached this trip with a little trepidation. We need not have worried. Tavira town is a gorgeous, quaint, old fashioned, unspoilt, traditional place. Our... More
