This is the former Vivo Rio and has changed very little in vibrant appearance. It does not have a large sign but is opposite the pedestrian entrance to the town bus station, as you walk up the river on the west side just beyond the town centre. It is not staffed continually and we were one of three groups waiting...

Leonardo is an excellent host and the rooms are very cute. The views from the river-side rooms and roof is excellent. In winter, make sure you have enough blankets and the heater works, as it was the coldest place we stayed (end Dec) in several towns in Portugal

Budget hotel in the heart of Tavira just by the river. Everything you need is in walking distance. Very friendly staff, large clean rooms, free Wifi, even after checkout. Breakfast is not served but nice cafes with all kinds of options are just around the corner.

This little place is in a fabulous location right along the river and There is a car park 200m away (beside the bus depot which is across the street from the hotel). It's an easy walk to loads of restaurants, pubs, shopping, and attractions. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are simple, clean, and nice (comfy beds,...

“Rooms facing road / bus station are naturally somewhat noisier , but not a problem.”
  • River view from hotel entrance, and roof terrace .

“The ones with a view to the main street are a bit less quiet. Choose the ones on the other side for a better sleep quality.”
PatriciaMadeira, Jan 3, 2015 | Read review
“I believe you can either choose a room with a view of the river but no terrace or a room with a terrace but not really much of a view. I would choose a terrace in the good weather, for sure. The rooms with a view of the river do have the road below but it is a one way small, slow road so not that busy or noisy.”
