Very enjoyable stay with nice surroundings, the service at the bar were a bit slow as if they were new to the job, also the same applied at morning breakfast time, I feel that a bit more of organisation is required at this time within the restaurant, generally a nice hotel with very pleasant staff and very convenient to the central areas of Tavira

A great hotel in heart of Tavira
Easy and swift check in, friendly and helpful staff who got us kettle for our room, explained how to get pool towels from the spa and ordered a taxi for us leaving. Room was ideal with a view of the pool and salt flats. Lighting in the room could be brighter and a dressing table to apply makeup and fix hair would make it perfect as it’s difficult to do in a steamy bathroom after a shower, but that’s only a small niggle. Breakfast was great, lots of choices and good service from the friendly staff. As others have said, the coffee is pretty tasteless but there’s plenty juice and teas. The hotel is perfectly located to enjoy the delights of Tavira. We would definitely stay here again and use more of the facilities the next time.
