If you want to go to Tavira and stay in a beautiful quiet place, then this is where you have to go to. Quinta Arruba has an amazing view, it's really quiet and has a lovely pool with terrace to relax. Nice rooms with a great view, everything was clean and enough space for storage. We rent a MBT to...

We stayed with John and Jane last year and had a brilliant time. The breakfast was really good and the room was lovely. John and Jane were really helpful and gave us some really good tips on where to go locally. It's a great location, peaceful yet lots to do as well. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely stay at Quinta Arruba. The owners are helpful and hospitable and made a great, fresh breakfast every morning. The swimming pool is lovely and the rooms are perfect (apart from the very creaky bed!). We had a car which I think is a must as the town is a good ten minute drive away. Tavira is... More

There's a "living room" and a terrace for the guests an a honesty bar where you can get wine or other drinks. It's located in a rural setting and quiet, but only... More

We stayed with John and Jane in June of this year, at the same time as guests Sarah and Tim who have also reviewed their stay. We wanted to have a week in the sun and to relax away from the buzz of our daily lives. The villa is situated down a long drive away from all traffic, and has... More

Last week, we had chosen Quinta Arruba because of the excellent reviews we found on the site of trip advisor. However, with these in mind, I couldn't help wondering if we hadn't arrived at another place also called Quinta Arruba since our experience differed slightly from the ones mentioned on the site: "friendly, helpful, nice, keen to please, if you...

We are very sorry that the family of 4 did not totally enjoy their stay with us. Unfortunatly the question that was asked on first arriving at Quinta Arruba was"is it possible to store food in the fridge" with no explanation of what the food was. We have 4 double rooms and if all guests store food it would maybe... More

Sometimes we struggle to find a large comfortable villa to suit our large family group needs - good size bedrooms, enough bathrooms and a good size lounge - but this fitted the bill. Importantly as well it had a very nice, relaxing yet secure (good for little kids) pooled area. This is predominantly a B&B throughout the year but owners... More
