Delightful but remote location

On the edge of an estuary about 2 miles to the southeast of Tavira, this hotel can be difficult to find. Look for Forte de Rato on map and roadsigns. There are some good walks from the hotel. We paid a little extra for a room with a river view – well worth it with the patio. The room was certainly comfortable and with very good wifi; the only quibbles were no tea-making facilities and having to pay a supplement for the safe. The remote location encourages use of the restaurant; the hotel gives a free bottle of wine for a couple dining on the first evening. Prices are reasonable with good service and a complementary appetiser (first night smoked salmon, second night tuna fishcake) but we felt that the food, whilst ok, should have been better for a 4-star hotel. The breakfast was very good – especially the scrambled egg and coffee. If you can get a window table, enjoy the views of hoopoes and hares. We enjoyed our stay, but we were there at a quiet time of year. The hotel has 162 bedrooms; breakfast could be very busy when the hotel is full. Just the evening food and lack of bedroom tea-making facilities prevent a top rating.

A great base to explore the Eastern Algarve

Pros: Location and facilities
Cons: Room lighting
Location: Tavira is a lovely old town with restaurants and a br that sells Portuguese craft beer, a joy!
A peaceful location with all the creature comforts from this hotel. Friendly staff and nicely located outside of Tavira. The rooms were clean and tidy but the aircon unit could have been quieter and a little more lighting in the room to allow for reading.. Good selection of food at breakfast. We would go back.

Havre de paix

Pros: Le calme, l'architecture, l'espace, les terrasses.
Cons: Les buffets (mets chauds souvent tièces).
Location: Visiter le centre de Tavira, ville non défigurée par le tourisme, Cacela Velha (hameau ravissant), Vila Real de San Antonio, ville intacte.
Situé loin de la ville, dans une réserve naturelle, bordé d'un fleuve et d'une lagune, cet hôtel est un endroit idéal pour récupérer du stress du reste de l'année. Personnel très aimable, en particulier à la réception.
