Just arrived home from a wonderful week in Tavira! We booked the holiday very last minute and our room was inexpensive, so we arrived hoping for little more than a basic week in the sun, yet we were pleasantly surprised by Porta Nova. The reception area is lovely with free wifi and the pool area is spotless with plenty loungers.... More

Absolutely spot on location (best views in Tavira)... Pool - Large and plenty of space to sunbathe! Cheaper than some very, very basic accommodation we researched (and we are backpackers). Rooms extremely comfortable and everything you need! Only downside which would be super easy for the hotel to rectify in this day and age... The wifi!

Hotel Porta Nova is such a friendly hotel! The first impressions are very good. The pool area is lovely and the staff are friendly. But when you see the rooms, some of your best impressions seem to change. The hotel decor is very, very nice outside the rooms, but the rooms seem oldfashioned. The rooms are good sized which is...

2 star. Food was awful, cold and the taste was really bad! Pay for things like towel's, safe. Pay for drinks after 11pm. No tea coffee in the rooms. Air conditioning was bad always warm. Rooms was dated. Only good thing was pool. Would not recommend.

This was a great place to stay for 5 nights. The hotel although large has a familiar feel to it and is in a wonderful position for a panorama view of Tavira but also good location to visit places on foot. The pool is huge and always plenty of sunloungers available.

Hotel rooms are starting to show their age but are clean, great pool area and only a short walk to town downhill so be aware its uphill on the way back. They do offer a mini train service but it costs $.

We have recently returned from a weeks stay at this hotel. Myself, my husband and our little girl stayed for a week. I cannot recommend this village and hotel enough. We absolutely loved it and are already planning our return. The hotel is spotlessly clean, staff are friendly and there's even a pet cat! Food is good but if you... More

My first advise would be not to go All Inclusive. The food is of a poor standard and the variety is worse. I travel quite a lot now and would not rate this hotel at a 4 star. The staff are however lovely which makes it a shame to leave a negative remark. The pool area is average but the... More

Stayed beginning July - excellent restaurant, reception, bar and housekeeping staff. All very friendly and especially well run restaurant. Food tasty and rooms clean. Originally was in room 218 overlooking swimming pool, but as there was an outside seating area underneath our room groups of people seemed to stay there until early hours of the morning and there was, at...
