Great stay in Tavira
We definitely enjoyed our stay at Vila Gale Tavira. The location is excellent within a 5 minute walk to the ferry to Ilha da Tavira as well as restaurants and shopping. The pool was key for us. Even with all the beautiful beaches, its nice to hang out by the pool with our little one before and/or after the beach. The breakfast was great to with everything you could ask for. There was nightly entertainment at the bar which we enjoyed before heading out to dinner each night. The parking was a bit awkward. I would have appreciated instructions ahead of time. For convenience, we ended up parking in the garage below the hotel but it was very dark and there is no signage as to how to get back up to the hotel. The games and activities for kids was also very limited: from 11am-noon ONLY. Apparently they are very concerned with people walking away with their ping pong rackets and their balls for the knock-down-the-cans -game so they only allow games to be played for that one hour and they are supervised. I found that very odd. Overall Tavira is very quiet but it was a nice change of pace from where we usually go (Albufeira). The rooms need updating. It was more of a 3star by U.S. standards but still comfortable nonetheless.

Not good for a quiet stay.
The front desk staff is grossly understaffed making my check-in and check-out at least an hour each. This is a cheap hotel with a big pool. The pool area is loud and chaotic filled with little kids and their parents. The buffet breakfast is exactly the same and the quality is POOR! however it is close to the main eating and shopping areas of Tavira and close to the dock to get to the beach island. I would not stay here again.

How does this place earn 4 stars???
Upon arrival, staff was not welcoming at all. In fact, staff was mostly indifferent, unhelpful or unavailable. I was given a room that was possibly the noisiest in the hotel, even though there were plenty of other rooms available. I believe it was because I was a single woman. The room's furniture and wood trim was battered and seemingly water-damaged. The room was worn and weary.

Oh dear ...
Could try better , very tired and geared for coach parties , 3 hours of grounds maintenance from 07.45 was not the way to enjoy the stay .
