“Fabulous setting - relaxing atmosphere - comfortable rooms”
Tucked away in a maze of tiny streets near the castle, this hotel has a great setting with views over the lovely town of Tavira. One of only two 'not good' comments is that for anybody who doesn't know Tavira, it must be a nightmare to find. The very pleasant, helpful, front-desk staff admitted that the hotel's postcode rarely helps visitors navigate the local streets - some one-way and barely wide enough for a car - and that visitors are frequently escorted up by the local police. Even the map on the website doesn't help much.
The second 'not good' is that the included breakfast was very mediocre - not at all at 4* standard.
That aside, I can thoroughly recommend this hotel. Converted from a 16th Century convent, there is a feeling of quiet, peaceful contemplation about the place - especially in the well-preserved cloisters. The rooms and en-suite are spacious with in-room safe and mini-bar - but no tea/coffee making facility - and the beds are most comfortable. The pool is set within some of the old walls and there is a well-stocked bar. The only meal we had was the breakfast but the menu for lunch and dinner looked very good. The front desk staff were excellent and most helpful. There is a small, gated car-park which, during our stay, was reduced even further by inconsiderate, or incompetent, drivers who took up two spaces for one car.
The hotel is situated on a small hill, near Tavira Castle, above the centre of the town and so has great views and excellent walking access to the delightful town centre, the Gilao River and Taviras many restaurants. Tavira's stunning beaches are 5 minutes away by car.
We will definitely return.
“Peaceful Calm and Comfortable”
This is the first Pousada we have been to and if they are all like this we wouldn't hesitate to go others.
The room was large with a large comfortable bed and excellent bedding. It was kept spotless, the towels were always thick and fluffy.
On arrival we were met by Alex who was excellent after a quick checkin he took us to our room and explained everything.
The food in the restaurant was excellent as was the service. The food was always nicely presented, hot and tasty. The staff couldn't do enough for you.
The breakfast choice was more limited than we are used to but still would satisfy all tastes.
The pool area was private and quiet with no trouble getting a sunbed.
We will definitely return and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
Travira is a lovely large town with plenty to do. It has plenty of restaurants and bars.
“We loved it!”
We spent a week here in September 2014 and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were lovely. The breakfast was fine with plenty of choice but the coffee was not great and I would have preferred freshly brewed. The building has some beautiful features the cloisters and the staircases were wonderful. The food in the restaurant was excellent but we found fantastic small restaurants in the town that were cheaper!
