We stayed at the Portanova for 4 nights as part of a two centre stay in Portugal. Maybe we had been spoiled at our previous hotel in Olhao which was the 5 star Real marina but we wanted to visit both towns in one go.

We booked the Hotel Porta Nova for a week stay from the end of December 2014 to include the New Year on a bed & breakfast basis. The hotel is in an excellent location in the town of Tavira, albeit it is on a slope so if you are not in a position to walk up or down a gradient... More

All the key cards looked very worn, as if they'd been overused. Never experienced that in an hotel or hostel before. Good... More

Just home from a 3 night stay at the Porta Nova with some friends. We all agreed that the value for money here was incredible and would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a decent standard of accommodation for a very reasonable price. Reception was very helpful, and able to answer various queries we had regarding taxi, restaurant bookings,... More

Stayed at the Porta Nova for a week in October half board. Our room was a good size, with a large balcony with lovely view over the town, must say it was spotlessly clean. Would have been nice to have a kettle in room to make a drink. The rooftop bar is lovely, its lovely to sit at night and... More
