    For me and my wife, this is one of the best hotels in the world. We have known and loved Tavira and its surroundings for 25 years. Being able to stay right in Natural Park of Ria Formosa and in a place like this hotel, which was an old Tuna Fishers "town" and has been restored magnificently is something really amazing and a real pleasure. Also, staying in May, with very reasonable prices and very few people in the hotel was superb.

    In a beautiful area, Tavira is a great area to be based in, close to Sapin too.

    The atmosphere in early season was homely and the added Carnival entertaining. Very comfortable and always worth a return visit.

    The ants nests in the room, the staff sprayed those they could see but it was ineffective, they need to destroy the nests. Offensive smells from the sewage tanks which were too close to our and nearby rooms.

    Was in Europe for 10 days. Visited the Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain. By far the best hotel we stayed in. Beautiful views and resources. Very friendly staff. So nice that we stayed an additional day to visit the beach as opposed to getting up and moving on to Faro.

    The hotel was in a wonderful location away from the town in the middle of a nature reserve. The staff were very friendly and helpful and really tried to help anyway they could. The buffet breakfast was excellent and the choice was good.

    The hotel restaurant had a choice of buffet or a la carte, the buffet was 22 euros and was very poor quality, food had been left standing was cold and dry. I chose a la carte and waited 1 hour for my one dish to be served. Our room was not cleaned during our stay and the facilities were very basic in the room. A family hotel so dont go here if you are looking for peace and quiet.

    Excellent food choice and quality. Adjacent to river and beaches

    Slightly remote from Tavira

  • 7.8

    Good facilities and comfort and while their were good attractions there were some down sides.

    Very remote approx three or four Klm from Tavira,shuttle bus did not run every day,and had early return times in the evening,so taxi fares can be up to 10 € one way,if you wanted to stay in town to eat .which can be less expensive then the hotel external terrace at each room could not be used in the evening,because of small flies and a good number of people had annoying and sore bites.

  • 9.2

    Staff - very helpful and friendly.Location - very peaceful and beautiful. Rooms - Very comfortable. Pool- Beautiful - plenty of sun beds

    The food. only average
