We arrived from Ireland on 09th October 2012 around 11AM - whilst our room was not yet available the receptionist was very welcoming and took our bags into the "hold room" also allowing both myself and my partner the time to change into some clothes more akin to the weather in Tavira (very warm)!! We duly collected our room keys later only to find that the key reader in the room didn't work. However after contacting the receptionist the hotel manager promptly arrived and duly arranged for another room. Within minutes of this the manager had sent up some refreshments to our room by way of an apology (which was most appreciated). I have to say that this was the only "blip" on our stay. The overall attitude of the staff was excellent and the buffet breakfast was excellent. There was a varied and wide slection of cereals, cold meats, cheeses, hot food and beverages. In addition there were ample sun loungers and the location to the centre of the town is excellent. The hotel runs a shuttle service to it's sister hotel enabling guests to avail of the the ferry to Tavira beach. We would definately recommend this hotel and will have no hesitation in staying at this hotel in the near future.
