The most striking thing about Tavira Garden is the fact it is located just off a busy A road. The leisurely walk to town is anything but, as lorries and speeding cars roll by on the 250-350 walk to the nearest roundabouts. Crossing requires great care as there are no pedestrian crossings on this stretch . To get round this... More

While it is true that one needs to stroll along a busy road for perhaps 250m, the hard shoulder is quite generous and is seldom regarded as a problem. Also, taxis to or from the old town are readily available at a cost of €4 to €5. Ted Mooney. More

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Tavira Garden and thank you for the kind words. The point you make about the apartments being individually owned is an important one, standards can and do vary significantly from one to another. Ted Mooney. More

This place was dingy and dirty. It has a kitchen but not so much as a salt shaker for guests. No paper towels or napkins. We were booked for two nights at a beach town and only given two thin towels. There is no air conditioning in the bedroom and the overhead fan and light in the bedroom did not... More

Tavira Garden is presented on TripAdvisor as an aparthotel. In fact, it is a condominium. The various apartments are individually owned and, unfortunately, standards vary dramatically. PortuGolf, in common with most owners, goes to great lengths to maintain high standards -- you were definitely not in one of my apartments. You seem to have experienced one of the few embarrassing...

Lovely relaxing place to stay. Easy to walk to restaurants and into the lovely village. Supermarket close to stock up, and a lovely fish and veg market. Nice boat trip across to Tavira Island, lovely beach and lots of nice restaurants.

The place was clean and comfortable. It is located few minutes drive from Tavira center and has a small supermarket nearby. We were a family of six so any other option was much more expensive. The apartment is a bit outdated but we didn't care.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tavira Garden, Algarve, is a modern holiday rental apartment complex. Set on a low hill looking out to sea over Tavira town, it is an expressionist rendition of the medieval Moorish style. The lush, mature gardens boast an impressive array of palm, carob and ancient olive trees, set off by lovingly tended shrubs and flowers. The family-friendly complex is ideal for those seeking a relaxing location from which to enjoy the sun, sand and sights of the Algarve or the magnificent golf courses, hills and countryside! Disco bars and lager louts are in short supply in Tavira but two night clubs are to be found! The complex has main pool 20mx10m, second pool 15mx6m (plus 2 kids pools), full gym (with personal trainer), tennis, boules, 2 kids play areas.
