Staff was friendly but had perhaps had a touch too much valium in their morning decafeinated coffee. Bar on the roof with a splendid view of Tavira (no need to be a guest of the hotel to visit it though). Worn down hotel badly in need of a serious make over (looks like they only modernised the outside walls). No... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel in August. Nothing fancy, but does the basics well. Room large and very clean. Food choice not vast but what was provided was good. Staff were polite and helpful. Nice pool.Not too far to walk in to town, which is pretty. Enjoyed the boat ride out to the island!

Having stayed here before (2yrs ago), I knew what to expect, but, having raved about Tavira itself so much, my 75 year old uncle convinced me to take him!! Not that I need much convincing to go to Tavira!!! We booked with Jet2 and will do again (enough leg room). Hotel Check-in was quick, simple,and informative (Obrigado Deborah). The rooms... More

I would not recommend this hotel to anybody. It is dirty.. The food is absolutely disgusting. This is the most depressing hotel I have ever stayed in!. Should be 2 star (maximum). Myself and my family were so disappointed that we tried to get an early flight home (like another guest that was appalled by the hotel). I don't understand... More

Just come back from 10 days at the Porta Nova, where the hotel had a good atmosphere. Food was good and the staff friendly. This was not a noisy place, even with catering for families. The view for the roof top bar was out standing, though the lifts are a bit scary when travelling in them. Would return to this... More

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
