The Tavira House is quaint and beautiful with extremely welcoming and helpful staff. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the dining room, sitting room, deck, and roof terrace are all beautifully decorated and available to enjoy at any time. It is conveniently located in the town near the bus station, train station, and the water taxi pickup. We highly recommend...

This small hotel is hard to find since it does not have a sign outside. Once there you will definitely feel at home. The owners will great you and serve you tea, show you around and make sure you are comfortable. The decoration, keeping the olden times ambiance plus the creative, artistic details will make you feel very comfortable and...

There are several inconsistencies between the information on the site and the real experience in this guest house. Yes, the location is perfect and the building has been carefully restored. But the "plunge pool" is an uninviting tank, the breakfast is not a buffet and is quite basic, and if you need to cut short your stay, for whatever reason,...

Our first impression was not uplifting as we were looking for a hotel with car parking facilities - as had been described on the booking website that we had used. We were allocated a room on the ground floor where the windows opened out onto the road. We were tired and not at all receptive to the courteous lady who...

Our 3rd stay and the new manager Catherina and her team are incredibly helpful and have added touches that enhance a fantastic hotel experience. The rooms are luxurious and the sun deck almost too comfortable and relaxing.

We stayed at Tavira House for 5 night in June. A friend recommended the hotel, and I thanked her before we even got home, as we enjoyed our stay at the hotel so much and our visit to the town. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a complimentary drink, I chose the mint tea which was...

We booked for 14 nights, but got off to a bad start, we were allocated a room on the ground floor, which didn't have a wardrobe, the extractor fan in the bathroom didn't work the water wouldn't go out of the basin and there was no hot water. To make things worse the wooden window shutters in an adjacent room...

A king bed in Portugal? Yes! This lovely spot had that, a wonderful rooftop terrace, fabulous breakfast and really helpful owner. Christoph was fun to talk with, helped us find a great spot for dinner and told us about interesting places to see in the city. This was a great location and I only wish we could have stayed longer...

We stayed two nights in two rooms on the ground floor. Quiet, nice and very clean rooms with comfy beds. The staff is so nice and friendly, and helped us out with restaurants, places to see etc. The roof top terrasse is excellent, and the decor in the rest of the house so elegant and cool. Loved the use of...

We stayed one night in this house during our road trip. The owner Christoph is a very kind person, he was very attentive and had a positive energy. The hotel itself has a nice atmosphere, especially the terrace is quite nice. Also the interior was quite nicely decorated. The room was also ok but not a master piece. There were...
