When we arrived we were taken away by the beauty of the resort. It is very impressive. We were also impressed by the member of staff advising us to go to the restaurant immediately as lunch was nearing an end and then check in after. This was the last time we were impressed. It only cost an additional £50 a... More

I stayed at this hotel for 1 week with my partner and we both really enjoyed it. Great location to go and relax. Hotel is in a good location as its very close to restaurants and bars although the hotel is at the top of a hill so best to take comfy shoes to walk home in. The hotel's pool... More

My wife, son and I have just spent a week all inclusive at this hotel. I was glad I only booked 1 week instead of a fortnight. Every department we encountered needs improvement. One positive I have to say is the staff are very helpful and polite and overworked. Upon check in we were told all inclusive drinks end at... More

Just an hotel really...WiFi is a problem, it only works in the lobby and the bar areas..so you can spend money to buy drinks while checking your e mails...do not use the small elevator, it plays up. It is an old hotel, all feels like you are in a time warp, that goes for all Portugal anyways and that's what... More

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...
