We stayed at the Hotel Porta Nova for a week in May 2015 and had a very happy holiday. Hotel was well organised, clean and tidy. Reception staff were helpful - on leaving day airport pick up time not available online so staff telephoned several times until sorted. Room cleaned regularly and staff polite. TV was old fashioned but we... More

On the 14 May this year I booked in to this hotel for 3 nights. The staff were very frindly and the hotel was very clean although the interior was very dated. The TV could have been on the 'antiques road show' however there were two English channels. The pool was large but not enough umbrellas to go around. Unfortunately... More

Hotel was very clean but outdated bedrooms. Pool area nice but had to access it by a lot of steps (not great for anyone with bad knee/leg problems) Anyone using wheelchair/mobility scooter has to go out the front of the hotel, around the side and use a staff gate to reach the pool, no lift available. Breakfast: "hot" selection was... More

Hotel Porta Nova is in an ideal location to access the main town and roads. The room we had was basic but very clean (maid service every day) and had all most people would need away from home. The staff were polite and helpful when needed. We would stay here again. Went to the roof top bar when we arrived...... More

I like to start with the positive, great location, shorts distance to centre and restaurants, amazing view from my room with early morning sun, nice roof top bar, nice pool area with really clean water. Staff at pool bar and top bar nice and friendly. The negative: staff at the reception were rude and unhelpful when we arrived. What about... More

This hotel is very centrally located, cafe an mini market close by. The staff were friendly and helped with all of our questions. We were given a room facing the town and asked to move as it was on the Western side and very hot. Not a problem as we were moved to a room overlooking the pool. We chose... More

No surprises. Cheap price, cheap facilities, rooms, breakfast. No complaints with that but there is no need to recruit rude reception and bar staff. Tavira is a fun base for Monte Rei and this hotel is as average as you'd expect for the price. Don't ask for anything though because the answer will probably be no.
