As a traveler with much experience we felt in this hotel very probably. The size and the number of rooms was just right. The rooms were clean and the service very friendly. The largest part of the guests were british and portuguese (with small children) the average age about 50 years. read hotel review

    The rooms are big enough and the establishment of standard. Toilets and showers were clean and functional.

  • Gastronomy
    3.0

    There is a buffet breakfast and restaurant for dinner and a bar. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and international. The evening buffet (on half board) was unfortunately not to our taste. The warm meals had no four star quality (very english, unseasoned, saltless and tasteless). We would only overnight stay with breakfast recommend (nearby there is several local)!

    The location of the hotel was ideal for us, since there are several places on the Algarve wanted to visit. One is in shortest time on the highway (liable to pay the costs and therefore very little traffic) and on well-maintained roads. In the very beautiful city on foot it is only 5 minutes and there is a lot to see. There are many small restaurants and shops and the location on the river was very nice. Also the the ferry landing on the sand-and island right behind the hotel (definitely recommendable). To the airport we drove with the car about 20 minutes.

Ideally located hotel see day trips to undertake. We had a room on the poolside. From the road traffic have We received nothing. The building and the rooms are well maintained and Clean. On breakfast buffet we always something delicious found. In the evening a food in buffet form offered. Also here was The selection enough (sometimes the fish and the meat Freshly grilled ). Because of the central location worth it - not only once - The old town to explore. There is again at any time something new to see. read hotel review

As night stop with breakfast possibility used, we came for four nights clear. Sleep in slightly musty standard room to the street with ear plugs possible. Quiet are safe the rooms the well-kept outdoor pool. The bed a closet with a fairly soft mattress, their feathers/mesh was to feel. Teppichbrücken and decor are a bit outdated. Tubes -tv with German channels (private ). Easter holidays very many families, mostly English. Children were the ubiquitous entertainment team well looked after, disturbed never. A pleasant together. Apropos disturbing: a very hectic staff attempted for breakfast places classified. He ran and beckoned constantly ... walking through the room. According to mood his colleague were inside. The daily same dishes were quite English. Small, somewhat poor selection sausage and cheese. With fresh fruit, muesli and occasionally fresh bread was enough for the start of the day to find. No freshly squeezed juices. Unfortunately swam in the good clorinated indoor swimming pool Bundle of hair, the floor of the pools was not more fully tiled and already pointed out some rough holes. This should not be. For the jacuzzi it must have no fear. Despite fresh painted walls, the whole seemed somehow receive. Besides still a small steam. Massages were available. Highlight is the place: here you can evenings - instead of half board - wonderful restaurants find, in which good and inexpensive can be eaten. The hotel wines were always good and due to the courts. read hotel review

Centrally located Hotel. Downside around thoroughfares in the rooms to the street side have a disadvantage. Inside rooms face the pool. For short trips as well. Less suitable location for beach holiday, always with the ferry to the beach must be driven by the lagoon. The place was comfortable and Nice. cosy evenings in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed the three days. We can recommend. read hotel review

The hotel is very centrally located and an easy walk to the very nice place Tavira. There are many small bars, restaurants and shops. Very nice atmosphere. Wonderful natural landscape. To the beach one drives with the ferry, which constantly comes for a small price. Great White, long sandy beach. Many small restaurants. If you don't as touristy like, a bit of a walk along the beach. There were hardly any people and no more restaurants. There are many possibilities of Tavira from the Algarve to meet. To the Spanish border is about 30 minutes read hotel review

It is a very large, well furnished and clean hotel, and easy to get, on the edge of the downtown area, close to the river to the beaches, from the outside in a style typical for the country. Over three floors in a rectangle are the rooms. In the courtyard of the large pool area with bar/cafe.

    We had a room facing the river, in the view not so nice. Everything was very clean, inside you had to rent the safe, €15 , the bathroom was fine. The balcony was very small, the minibar full, no chance to cool our own drinks. For a longer stay the closets were too small, instead a lot of drawers. The TV can you international channels (Austria) see. The facilities are good, functional.

    The breakfast is served in a large interior, unfortunately no outdoor area, at the fine weather appropriate. To reserve a seat and depends on the other, partly lines. It is clean, the buffet well executed or overseen, no wishes remain open - no problems to see.

You will be treated to the shuttle bus picks you up, brought to a ferry station, 2-4 events on day, or every hour boat for 1.90 € (there and back), about 200 meters from the hotel, on the island. Lots of eating and drinking options, a lot of space, a dream beach. Traveling to watch and flamingos are storks. On the beach a lot of peace, clean, stone free on walking, many shells to collect.
