What a fantastic hotel for the Price. I went with 3 of my mates for a break. The hotel was clean and tidy with friendly staff, great pool and great rooftop bar. Drinks were cheap in the hotel, with fantastic views from the bar. Tavira is magical, very laid back and cheap to eat and drink when out. Cabanas is... More

It's quite clean and tidy. The pool is nice and the staff helpful. It's quite bad that there wifi is only available in the entrance hall and in the panoramic bar, which means there's no wifi in the rooms. More for families than anything. Worth it for the price.

Hotel was ok, a good base to explore from as you can walk everywhere. Staff on reception are a bit surley&they dont tell you that you need (by law) a... More

We were transfered to this hotel by thomas cook as our previous hotel was horrible. On 1st impressions the hotel looked lovely and clean and rather spacious. We were on the 2nd floor accessible by both lift and stairs and we had a pool view. The room had 2 beds and a table and chair and plenty of storage space.... More

Folks who have read my other reviews will know that they are fair, and mostly complimentary. We did visit Tavira "out of season" and I was not in the best of health, as I was recovering from Flu and had been injured on the way to the hotel when a transfer driver pushed me in the back and made the...

Last night we went to the Porta Nova to experience the view over Tavira from the hotel roof top bar! What a disappointment......... A great big cocktail menu.....Fabulous night time views over the very special Tavira, and NO FRESH LIMES, so my two favourite cocktails OFF the menu!!! Now this is VERY strange as the whole of the Algarve is... More

I spent a week at the end of August with my 19 year old cousin. When arriving at the hotel we were very pleased! The reception area is big and modern and immediately the staff were happy to help and sorted us out quickly so we could go to bed. (It was the middle of the night!) We were on... More
