The apartment was OK, the grounds are well maintained and pleasant, and the staff is helpful. The main minus point is the sofa bed, which was very uncomfortable. Having a car is recommended to enjoy the stay.

Tavira Garden is a pleasant enough complex with a mix of holiday-makers and 2nd home owners. The complex is quite large and situated just outside the delightful town of Tavira. There are two swimming pools on site and they are good enough for most people, with sun-loungers, drinks etc readily available. Our apartment was nice enough with a large balcony... More

I'm glad that Matt H was satisfied overall with his stay in Tavira Garden. It is true that there is no pavement/sidewalk on the main road, the hard shoulder is more than 2m/7ft wide and one is on the main road for only approx 300m to go to the supermarket. The footpath to town is directly across the main road... More

We have just returned from a fabulous 2 week holiday. Our apartment was booked via 'owners direct 'had 2 balconies, sunny and shady so it suited everyone. It was kitted out with everything we needed and more! The pool was a great size and I especially enjoyed my long morning swim when the kids were still asleep. Never a problem... More

Tavira Garden does not claim to be perfect but we do claim to be regarded as probably the best family-friendly vacation apartment complex in the Eastern Algarve. Reviews like this are a great encouragement to all of our staff. Ted Mooney. More

we booked appartment 16a directly with the owner, Mr. Ted Mooney, and we had a fabolous week in Tavira! Mr. Mooney is very helpful and answered all our questions before the trip. We loved the apartment, the complex and the city. The walk to the city was for us just perfect - it allowed a little dessert every day without... More

Tavira Garden is a mix of recidense and holiday apartments. The apartment was ok. The complex is very close to the road and a long walk to the city center.

I'm sorry that the reviewer was not completely satisfied with Tavira Garden but I am puzzled by the reference to a problem with the pool. It's true that the two adult pools have depths of approx 120cm at the shallow end. However, there are kids pools beside each of the adult pools -- these are designed to provide a suitable... More

Just returned from a week in Tavira Garden booked direct with owner. Complex is not really a holiday resort per se, more a managed estate which has a mixture of permanent residents and holiday lets, which makes for a different feel (and clearly some of the apartments are empty at this time of year). We had a large apartment spread... More

I guess the old saying holds true, "You can't please all of the people all of the time"! But the review, while critical, is objective. We typically manage at least four stars out of five and we try to do better. Ted Mooney. More

Entered the apartment to find that it was massive, two large bedrooms, huge lounge\diner, large fully equipped kitchen, balcony off the lounge and master bedroom and finally a lovely solarium with tables, chairs and a gas BBQ.

We aim to please and it looks like we may have succeeded in this case. The review is much appreciated. The client is right about the furniture looking a little tired.

Took a 2 bed apartment with what looked like a lovely roof terrace and was going to stay 10 weeks. The apartment was so damp we had to have heating on all the time and it just didn't improve.

There are several different people offering apartments in Tavira Garden. Generally speaking, the apartments are of a high standard and the owners take care to ensure that clients are not disappointed in what they receive. However, there is always the exception which proves the rule and it would appear that this particular couple were unfortunate in their selection. As to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tavira Garden, Algarve, is a modern holiday rental apartment complex. Set on a low hill looking out to sea over Tavira town, it is an expressionist rendition of the medieval Moorish style. The lush, mature gardens boast an impressive array of palm, carob and ancient olive trees, set off by lovingly tended shrubs and flowers. The family-friendly complex is ideal for those seeking a relaxing location from which to enjoy the sun, sand and sights of the Algarve or the magnificent golf courses, hills and countryside! Disco bars and lager louts are in short supply in Tavira but two night clubs are to be found! The complex has main pool 20mx10m, second pool 15mx6m (plus 2 kids pools), full gym (with personal trainer), tennis, boules, 2 kids play areas. On-site bar, restaurant (off-season opening limited) ensures convenient wining and dining. Large supermarket 300m. Car rental on site (airport drop-off OK) but many visitors walk (10-15 min) or taxi (4 Euros) to town centre. Free WiFi internet on site in Tavira Garden main reception area (guaranteed during office hours). ... more   less
