This hotel is beautifully presented and very spacious. However the most notable attribute is the staff. A fantastic warm friendly team. We shared a generous suite with our two children (6&8). The hotel is ideally situated for pottering about the very pretty and historic Tavira. Definitely recommend.

This place is gorgeous! If your budget will run to it - and me being a solo stay, mine won't - then please do treat yourself, as this Pousada is wonderful. Calm. Special. They do sometimes have deals and offers.. and, yes, it's pricey. But, as I said, it IS a very special place. I know one or two staff...

Our experience at the Pestana Pousadas de Portugal was outstanding in every way! Service was extraordinary (especially Anabela at the reception desk, who was on duty when we arrived and when we departed). The property, a former convent, is beautiful and meticulously maintained, from the Arabian courtyard, to the outdoor pool area, to the dining room, the hallways, and our...

This Historic hotel is a former Convent in the heart of the old town surrounded by narrow cobbled streets. Tastefully converted to retain the relaxing atmosphere - much of the original architecture is still in place. There is adequate car parking although we did not use this facility. Our standard room was not especially large, but was comfortable and well...

This is a historic and excellent place to stay. Easy walking to downtown Tavira. We rented bike and went 18 km to a beautiful beach at Manta Rota. The Pousada is well appointed and luxurious and quiet.

This was the last stop of our three week vacation in Portugal. My husband and I loved this Pousada. It was walking distance to the main area of town! our room was clean and tidy.

We stayed for three nights in this former convent situated just above the tourist town centre.

As with all the pousadas, this one is a conversion from a historic building.The re-building has been carried out tastefully and elegantly, so that all the rooms, both public and private, have a gracious feel to them. The attached restaurant is also superb. If you enjoy a taste of luxury, this is an excellent place to appreciate it.
