“A hidden treasure”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

We stayed at the Tavira House for four nights in May 2014 and had an excellent stay. The building has been restored to its original beauty. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and the room we stayed in was beautifully clean. Its position is ideal, being less than five minutes walk from the bars and restaurants but in a quiet street with no noise at night. After a leisurely breakfast, take a walk into town and sit in the gardens to watch the world go by, or just go up to the sun terrace on the roof of the hotel, with plenty of comfortable seating for everyone. All in all, it was a delightful stay.

We stayed for 3 nights and I have to say I cannot fault it. The bedroom was huge and i loved the style. I was initially 'miffed' there was no bath robes as I thought a hotel of that standard should provide them, but when I saw how much we were paying i changed my mind as I'd thought it was about three times more expensive than it was! The public rooms are stunning and the staff couldn't be more friendly/helpful if they tried. The wine tasting was a great experience and really informative - a lovely touch for residents that's completely free of charge. The location is perfect for wondering into town and Tavira itself was very quiet on an evening (and I felt very safe). If you like cocktails visit the Tavira Lounge by the river, definitely the best!

Room Tip: Pay for a suite, it's not much more and well worth it.

We visited off season in mid-March 2014. We were blessed with wonderful weather that always helps! Tavira House is in the heart of Tavira which is a delightful unspoilt town with lovely squares and spaces for sitting and some great restaurants. We had the suite at the top of the house which was good although there was not enough headroom above the bed as the bedroom is in an area in the roof space. We could imagine it could get very hot in summer.

Staff were great: Serge who looked after us during the day, Mark who cooked us breakfast, and Roxanne who cleaned our room. For most of the time we had the whole hotel to ourselves, which again was a treat. The sitting area and sun beds on the roof is very relaxing and a real sun trap.

We went for walks to see the profusion of wild flowers, hired bikes, played some golf. A really excellent break.

After cycling in the Algarve hills and camping for 3 days it was paradise spending the remaining 3 days of my vacation in relaxing tranquil surroundings.

Room. Comfortable with large walk-in shower.

Breakfast. Relaxing with lots of selection, strong coffee.

Staff. Very knowledgably, my thanks to Serge for recommending exceptional restaurants.

Hotel. Plenty of nooks and crannies to relax in and read my emails, strong internet signal.

Overall excellent.

Room Tip: Engage with the staff for local knowledge

We had not been to Portugal for 30 years so this was a new experiance for us. We arrived in late September and stayed for 2 weeks. We were very impressed with the interior of this hotel and while in the town it was very quite.While the interior is very palatial the staf are warm & friendly. Jo & Isabella a very helpful and accomadating While Mark who served us breakfats everyday made our holiday complete. He gave us an insight to the resturants in Tavira and pointed us in the right direction to some more traditional portugeuse resturants.He was certainly an asset to the restuarant.
The wine tasting is very low key and not very pretentious Serge kept us in stiches while passing on his vast knowlegment.
One disappointment was the pool. It is under the terrace so does not get any sun hense it is very cold. It is also more of a plung pool than a swimming pool.
But this did not spoil our trip we would certainly stay again and recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: Go for an upstair superior room they are a bit more expensive but well worth it.

Experienced a great week in a very comfortable hotel which is very convenient to the town and restaurant's. The interior is wonderful with the rooms although not overly large very tastefully decorated. The staff, Jo and Isabelle could not be more helpful with a delightful manner and not forgetting the wine tasting evenings which are not to be missed with a very knowledgeable Serge doing the honours.

This is a lovely, old home which has been completely renovated with a lot of style! There are lots of stairs to negotiate so it is for mobile people. Breakfast was very good...staff was great! Very quiet in this neighborhood of Tavira....only a short 5 minute walk to the center of town...highly recommend a visit.
