Advertised as 4* but really less than that - rooms are basic, beds are hard and walls are thin! Bar and restaurant are cavernous and uninviting. However staff welcoming and efficient and breakfast was good.

Stayed 1 week on a golf tour. Large and well equipped room. Buffet style breakfast and dinner with plenty of variety - hot and cold food to suit all tastes. Friendly staff. Indoor and outdoor pools with spa and gym. Bar prices a little high but cheaper bars within short walk. Tavira is a quality resort relatively unspoilt by tourist...

Great hotel in a great city, very close to the salinas and the island of Tavira. Staff is good, the services are good, the food is good (the breakfast is included and is great), the indoor pool is nice, the room was nice but the only problem is that the walls are very thin (or the building very old) so...

A nice hotel right by the old town district of Tavira. We ate at the hotel one evening and there was a confusion in the order, so I didn't get what I thought I had ordered. This was solved in a very nice way. The dish I thought I had ordered was more expensive than the one I got so...

Stayed here for 3 nights in October as it was the only hotel near to a friend we were visiting. It's clean, has decent facilities and the buffet breakfast is pretty good with a large selection of food. The rooms are very dated with thin walls and hard floors so there is lots of noise transfer. You can hear the...

In the heart of Tavira, this hotel is close to eveything. The pool is good, there is a spa and a small gym. Rooms from 2060 to 2100 can be noisy, they are above the bar / restaurant. However, I could switch to a different room without any problems. Wifi connection was also better in the new room :-) Breakfast...

We stayed there for six days in Oct,16. Generally it is a good hotel but by no means a 4 star. The food is very poor for evening dinner and the breakfast is so boring. The internet is only possible if you are sitting very neat reception desk. The rooms are big but so old and worn. The air conditioning...

Just spent five days in the Vila Gale Tavira (previously stayed in the sister Vile Gale Albacora). Good quality traditional style hotel with fairly large rooms and a great location in the centre of Tavira. The quality that makes this hotel that little bit special is without doubt the staff: from the receptionists, to the cleaning ladies, to the waiters...
