Perfect place to spent your vacations.

Lovely hotel
beautiful hotel. Great staff. Bed was a little lumpy and I hate buffets so not impressed with the food. Gorgeous grounds. Very well maintained. Wish we could have stayed longer!

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.

Not great
The hotel looks nice but it took 45 mins to check in. The pool bar closes at 6pm even though everyone was sitting outside by the pool. The beds are rock hard and the drains take forevermore drain making it tough to have showers one after the other. The spa only works 9-5 which is stupid. Who wants to sit in a spa during the day when it's 28 degrees. The beach close to the hotel is really bad and lots of mosquitos. You have to pay the hotel a fee to take you to the beach on Tavira island which is lovely. Breakfast is a buffet and the fried eggs were hard and badly cooked. They wouldn't do some fresh for me and weren't prepared to make an omelet. I ordered an omelet at the pool bar which was so hard I left it. When the waiter asked.. Don't you like it and I said no he just shrugged his shoulders wandered off and have me the bill. the biggest problem is that there are no decent hotels in Tavira.
