A great place for an almost isolated R&R

A super stay in a fantastic hotel.
A super stay in a fantastic hotel, the facilities were excellent, breakfasts some of the best hotel buffet breakfasts I’ve had, and it was in a lovely location by the river outlet to the sea. Looking forward to going back.

Good 6.0
slightly isolated converted fishing village
the hotel is an old fishing village in which the terraced cottages have been converted, planning restrictions as to windows leave the room a little dark and the cobbled streets amplify and sound outside.The rooms are a good size, but can be a little welcoming to mosquitoes and ants. it is a 45 min walk to tavira minimum, and 25 min walk to the shopping mall. lots of bird in the surrounding salt marsh nature reserve, also ideal for exercising. facilities in the hotel are decent with the spa ,although the gym could do with maintenance and updating. tavira is probably the most authentic portuguese town on the algarve. ferries are needed to access beach

Unusual hotel with excellent facilities
The hotel was formed from a renovated Tuna fishing village and is about 2 miles outside of the main town. You will need a car to get to the town. The hotel runs shuttle boat services to and from the island, and the beach there is excellent with restaurants, water sports, crystal clear sea and fine sand. The hotel itself is made up of rows of villas on a single storey. The rooms are fine and spacious although the beds and pillows are pretty hard. The pool is good and excellent for children. The spa is a nice feature with special offers running each week on massages and treatments. The town itself is nice enough with lots of restaurant choices in the cobbled back streets. The town comes to life at night with a little market and plenty of people out walking around and enjoying the town. Hotel staff are friendly if a little distant, and we enjoyed our stay here.
