This hotel is simply wonderful! Why? 1. The staff are exceptional. Effecient, polite, charming.....every one of them! Never have we felt so welcome and so well looked after. Both before arriving and during our stay they were very helpful. 2. The hotel has been sympathetically and beautifully converted from a C.16th convent. The rooms are tastefully decorated and good size....

Perrrrrrfect Hotel, beautifully restored and maintained, Great pool and amazing cloisters. Staff were professional but friendly couldn't do enough for you without ever being pushy. Tavira is beautiful with interesting Roman, Moorish and old christian buildings. Loads of good restaurants, we sampled about 10 during our stay all were good value. We would return

Spent two nights at this Pousada and must say that I am quite pleased overall. The building is lovely as is very often the case with Pousadas, very well kept and clean.

We enjoyed our stay so much last year, we returned again. We both enjoy the 'Tavira vibe'. Not too touristy & enough to entertainus throughout our stay.

The Pousada de Tavira is a busy hotel which occupies a quiet position on the top of a hill overlooking a pretty square and is a very short walk from the busy river front.
