“Wonderful building in a wonderful town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

This is lovely hotel right in the town centre of Tavira, full of historic charm large rooms and a nice pool. Breakfast is great and price is reasonable. We ate there one night of our stay and food was too a high standard. Staff were friendly and extremely informative, and very helpful. Overall great 4 night stay.

Room Tip: I would prefer to stay in one of the rooms in the main building just for the historic value, however...

We drop by and received a very warm welcome; it is a beautiful place, peacefull and full of charm. The staff is most helpful; lunch was very good and relatively unexpensive, olives and bread, soup of the day, fish or meat and delicious desserts plus glass of wine and mineral water, coffee for 15 euros per pers. Walk around, look at the architecture, stay in the garden or have tea outside, it is a pleasure.

Very nice historical building managed by very friendly staff. Lovely town down the street and sweet villages nearby. Room furniture and decoration are "historic", and seem to vary from one wing to another.

Room Tip: Check the new wing out

As we were in much need of some serious r&r, our dear friends recommended we visit The Pousada in Tavira. And how glad are we that we did just that. From arrival to departure, our two night stay could not have been better. Excellent service from all the staff, so helpful & friendly. Lovely light, comfy room over looking the gardens, very tranquil. And the 5* breakfast gave us fuel for the whole day! very scrummy. We shall definitely return, in warm weather so we can use the lovely looking pool.

On a world championship trip with my son and friends we stayed in this beautiful hotel. Very nice with very attentive staff and good food. The building is historic and very nice renovated. We did enjoy a lot with all family and sailors!

Stayed in Suite 9 for 2 nights, late January. Most enjoyable. Staff very attentive and whilst there were few other guests we enjoyed good food in the restaurant in the evenings (good choice - a la carte as well as good value fixed price 3 course menu at Euro 15.) Breakfast also good with hot menu cooked as requested.
Suite clean, warm and roomy. Air Con/heating very efficient. Comfortable bed and good bathroom/separate shower. Large balcony. Few UK programmes on the TV. Kettle and just 4 tea bags! (no coffee) !
Good private parking and good position with just a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Tavira.
Would certainly return.

Stayed here low season. Wonderful historic building must be lovely to have breakfast in cloisters in season. Reception staff charming and helpful on arrival. Disappointed in room dark but some of this maybe due to poor light in low season and lack of working light bulbs not what one would expect in such surrounding Also disappointed that there were no tea and coffee making facilities in room unusual now a days !
. Ordered bar snack in bar not good put us all off eating evening meal in dining room both nights,better places to eat in town. Breakfast was fine. Staff a bit low on ground probably due to season but the staff that were there were very good. Worth staying a night due to lovely buildings and setting in historic centre of town.
