Although we didn't stay we stopped in thinking it was a museum. The wonderful reception let us take a look around at the church and courtyard. Both were very beautiful. The hotel also had a pool with a backdrop of the old city wall. If we would have stayed overnight in Tavira it would have been here. Also - it's... More

We arrived in the late afternoon and we're delighted to find they had parking here. We parked and wandered into this beautiful pousada - converted from a convent. The staff was courteous and gracious. The kind fellow walked out to our car and carried out bags in to reception and then to our room. The room was huge. We had... More

We loved this hotel. It was so peaceful, relaxing and calming. A beautiful former convent and monastery in the centre of the old town, near the castle. Although only a few minutes walk from the river, main square and many restaurants, it is set in a very peaceful location. One word of advice if arriving by car. Make sure you... More

This historical pousada that originally was a convent is exquisite especially the ambience created by the sense of authenticity and architectural design. It is exquisite especially the ancient courtyard of the cloistered quadrangle. The modern decor is tastefully appointed that compliments the historical setting. There is an accent on the features of the ancient 16th century convent pousada that are... More
