Pros: Nice clean swimming pool.
We really enjoyed our stay and the staff were very pleasant. And the location is great with just a short walk to some great restaurants and Tavira town.

Always provides a relaxing, enjoyable holiday

Posted Jul 16, 2017
Pros: Everything
Location: Centrally located, easy walk to beach boat and land train stops outside hotel. Lots of nice restaurants and bars a stroll away.
Large room overlooking pool, clean and laundered regularly, hotel staff are friendly and helpful, hotel is minutes away from Tavira town centre with enough restaurants and bars to satisfy a fortnight away. Relaxing

Typical "beach" Hotel with a bit More.

Posted Jul 15, 2017
The hotel itself has much to offer. Pool, indoor pool, gym, sauna, and close proximity to many shops, restaurants and the beach ferry. The rooms are a bit dingy (though I believe they are renovating). The staff, except for Abdul and one other gentleman at the pool area, were kinda slow. The "concierge" was of no help at all. The buffet, while it had many options, was a little bland, but definitely filling. Overall good fun for the kids and a nice break.

Delightful

Posted Jul 7, 2017
Pros: Location. Staff
Cons: N/a
Location: Ferry to beach €2 return. Lots of varied restaurants, take the time to read reviews before deciding where to eat. Be brave try the smaller ones
Whilst hotel was quite full there was always sun beds free, room at breakfast and not queues at bars etc. Well located to restaurants and local town. Staff friendly, efficient and helpful. Would recommend for couples.

They charge to use the room safe which in this day and age is ridiculous

Nice hotel, but a bit dated

Posted May 29, 2017
Nice hotel in a very good position in Tavira, walking distance to the town. The hotel is dated and needs to be updated, work was been done when we stayed, so maybe they are in the process of updating. We had a drink in the bar one evening, but the colour of the decor was very dark and was not an inviting place to have a drink. The bedroom was spacious with a pool view. There wasn't coffee or tea making facilities in the room which I would have expected.

nice hotel:lovely room overlooking the pool:

Posted May 22, 2017
Pros: its location:
Cons: thought the quality of evening entertainment poor: except for folk group: your entertainment team did not seem to provide the right programme.
Location: good train service/ good boat service to the Island/ good cafes etc.
ideal location for the town restaurant could have done better with set staggered times it got far too busy bedrooms were often not cleaned before 5pm which was a bit late.but in the main a very enjoyable exerience

A very nice mid sized hotel close to town

Posted May 8, 2017
Pros: The location and the cleanliness of the whole hotel
Cons: I think the being charged for the room safe is a bit cheeky in this day and age
Location: Location is good. Not far to walk to bars,cafe,and resturants.A bit too quiet for 12 to 16 yrs old l would say
Overall the hotel was very good. Bar prices steep 14 euros for two beers and two cokes! Go into town and find a bar. Breakfast was good and plentiful no complaints there. When hiring a safe make sure you get a receipt as this may cause a problem on checking out.

Not hotel we booked

Posted May 4, 2017
We booked Vila gale tavira but due to their error we were placed in albecora, outside town. Staff gave recompense but the time spent addressing issues cut into the time away significantly. We got the impression we were not the only guests this happened to

Dear Guest, We appreciate the feedback we receive and welcome any opportunity to improve. We are very disapointed for not being able to provide you the service that you were expecting, due to an allocation error reservation. We would appreciate if you give us the opportunity to return to our hotel and to show you that this was not our standard service. Best Regards,
