The hotel is beautiful with all common areas kept well manicured and clean. The main courtyard was very nice and the pool area was lovely. The rooms, however, seemed a bit dated and tired. The beds were quite uncomfortable, unless you like very hard mattresses. (I thought it was like sleeping on the floor). The bathrooms were nice and clean.... More

The hotel is charming and is located within easy walking distance of any attractions. The rooms are somewhat small but that might be expected from a historical property. The breakfast buffet was typical. The staff was ok. My note of caution is that Tavira is basically shut down on Sundays---attractions, bike rentals, many restaurants, and even churches!

This beautiful, comfortable, small and friendly hotel has charming original architectural features, a cool courtyard and a stylish blue (very cold!) pool. It's just a short walk from the Roman bridge and charming centre of Tavira with its shops and restaurants with great fresh fish, reasonably priced. The hotel bar and restaurant are on the expensive side but the fresh... More

We stopped here for 2 nights after a very busy schedule in Lisbon, Coimbra and Porto. The former convent is very beautiful, serene and nothing is too much trouble for the lovely staff. A very enjoyable rest in lovely Tavira. It was April and the town was a little quiet off season which suited us fine.

Lovely environment in old convent with courtyard, and an interesting walk down to the main town and river. Evening meal good with friendly service, though expensive. Breakfasts good but problems with coffee machine not being hot early enough. Room was large with comfy bed. The heating/cooling system was still set to winter heating, which could be turned off, but not... More

It would be repetitive to say what is right about this Pestana Pousada. We have stayed in one that was less than good (Obidos), but this one excelled in all respects. Besides Tavira is a very simpatico old town.

We enjoyed our stay at this very unique and historic hotel. Our room was spacious if a little tired. Breakfasts were plentiful but it is the staff who deserve a special mention, from checking in, to the cleaning and waiting staff, all were excellent. A very pleasant stay and would recommend.

Excellent place to stay! Amazingly beautiful historic building with a lovely courtyard - old pillars, a fountain, lounging chairs, tranquillity - you get the picture. There's a pool and gardens too - pool looked tempting but way too cold in April. Great location in the old centre of Tavira near the castle. Tavira is one of the few places along... More
