This hotel is a little bit old but very nice,with big swimming pool, near the city center. The staff is excellent, specially Mr. José Cuiça, which is always very kind to the customers and with an open smile.

The hotel is located on top of a hill in Tavira. It's within walking distance from the train station and the bus station. The views from the hotel bar which is located on the top floor are amazing. The maids did a very thorough job cleaning our room every day. The property in general was always spotless. The front desk... More

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
