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!

Pretty setting, a little too far from town
We had a very nice stay. The outdoor garden and pool area is lovely, and the boat to the beach is very convenient. We're a family of 3 and the room was a bit small. The position of the camp-bed meant we couldn't open the terrace door. Cleaning happened late in the day, sometimes as late as 7 in the evening, so we often came back to an untidy room. The buffet for breakfast and dinner was OK. We stayed B&B, and wouldn't recommend the dinner buffet - the quality does not match the price.

Resort Hideaway
The Hotel Vila Galé Albacora is a lovely resort, however it is located quite a distance away from downtown Tavira. For me, the seclusion was very relaxing. Their spa was refreshing - sauna, Turkish bath, whirlpool, and indoor pool - especially since it was still a little too cold (late May) for us to enjoy the beach. The food in the restaurant on site was remarkable, and the front desk staff were very kind and helpful. The night we stayed there, there was also a dance demonstration in the resort bar area. Very neat! I would definitely recommend staying here for someone who's looking for a little tranquility in their Portuguese travels.

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.

Good3.0 / 5
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.
