We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for two nights at the end of a 10 day holiday. Having been in a fully equipped villa with a maid and private swimming pool, maybe our expectations were high. However, I doubt we'll be going back to Monte da Eira apartments.
The apartment was very clean, well maintained and functional. There is also a small supermarket 75 metres down the road from reception and on the other side of the road from the complex's bar. Otherwise everything else Tavira offers is a long walk away. Better to have a car (we did).
Checking in was a brief affair and we were told next to nothing of what the complex offers other than a restaurant, the nearby supermarket and 2 swimming pool areas. On going into our apartment, we couldn't find the third bed, so had to go back to reception to ask - the sofas are fold out beds, though given their design, this isn't very obvious. Neither these beds nor the main bed offered a good night's sleep. Air con worked well. The kitchenette had a microwave and electric 4 ring hob but no surface area left to prepare anything on and, although there were pans, there were no utensils to cook with other than a blunt knife, a sharper bread knife, a ladle and a straining spoon. We went to one swimming pool area and, although there were no free beds, the smaller pool was child friendly if your children are over 1m tall or can swim. The larger pool was wet.
On checking out at 8:20am on a Monday, reception was closed, so we left the key in the apartment and phoned them later to say that's what we'd done. If you do go and stay and intend to check out early, ask what the procedure is first.
Functional, very clean and well maintained, as I say, but that's about it.
