A beautifully restored period hotel with many interesting features. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are serviced daily and kept very clean. The staff are always attentive and accommodating. It seems that nothing is any trouble for them and that your stay in the hotel is paramount. Well recommended. We will return without a doubt.

If you are spending some days in Tavira this small place is a nice choice. Keep in mind that this hotel is not a luxury one: no elevators, no nice breakfast, no service. Rooms are simple but if you have a room with a balcony with a view to the river you will understand the reason I liked it. Location... More

We spent a very pleasant 5 days in this hotel. Our room had a spectacular view over the river. It was a delight to wake early in the morning to the winter sunrise. Staff were very helpful in this well run hotel. If you want to see the real town and its life this hotel is an ideal place to... More

My wife and I arrived in Tavira without a hotel reservation. I looked on trip advisor. Our first choice was the Convento, but it was booked. Then we noticed Residential Mares. It was only two blocks from where we were having lunch on the square. They had a room available for €45 which is the off-season price. It is bigger... More

Good location along the river. I would STRONGLY recommend a GPS to locating this hotel. The Google maps or MapQuest are very confusing in that they give you street names BUT finding the street names is very difficult. We stopped at the local police station and they were most helpful. Very good breakfast is included!

We just came back from Tavira. The hotel is very clean and the breakfast is decent. The location of the hotel is one of its advantages because it's close to the boat for Tavira Island. It's also close to the centre, which was great because there was a Mediterranean Festival going on while we were there.

This is well located on the river front. Adjacent to ferry to the island and walking distance to central areas. The rooms are fairly small but very clean. An excellent shower. Small fridge but no tea-making facilities.. No lift so ask for lower floor if you have mobility difficulties. Room had a small balcony overlooking street at back and was... More

We booked this small hotel at the last minute and for just 1 night as a stopover on our way back to Faro from Spain. Friendly staff and good rates for a double room with a view to the river in high season. The residence is surprisingly big once you are inside and there is a roof terrace with views... More

The location of Mares is good and we found it easily. You can drive right down past the river and you find it just past the "old market". The lobby is a little worrying, looking a bit shabby, but the rooms whilst basic are extremely clean, large and sufficient. In my opinion there is little use to pay extra for... More
