Thanks to reviews we asked for a room facing the pool - good move. No late night entertainment so no noise. Entertainment is inddoors, mainly easy listening music/ wine tasting. The hotel is built in a hollow square so the other rooms looked over the town/streets. The salt flats alongside the river to the sea are close by and some...

Stayed in Vila Gale Tavira last week, lovely hotel, very relaxing, breakfast gorgeous. Kids little pool is great for Toddlers. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Tavira is gorgeous too! Trains a lot cheaper than buses when travelling to markets in Olhão/ Fuseta.

Stayed in the Vila Gale twice now, and will be staying again in a few weeks. Tavira's great, and the Vila Gale is very handy for the shops and restaurants, as well as having underground parking and free internet in reception (which reached my room both the two times we've stayed). The breakfast was mega, and we didn't eat lunch...

Had a lovely 3 night break at this hotel as part of a 2 week road trip through Spain and Portugal. Reception staff were exceptionally helpful and while agreeing the bedroom furniture may be a little tired, it did not affect the comfort of our stay! So much choice of breakfast was very welcome and would love to return for...

I got back from this hotel on 15th August and must say I had a very pleasant stay with my 12 year old. It is a very quiet resort and very pretty town with lovely beaches you can get to via water taxi. I would say the hotel is a little tired in places and could do with a refurb...

Great hotel, atmosphere a bit similar to the town - classy, a bit retro, wide spaces - room as well as hallway and pool area, lovely decor - objects laying around, color schema ... really made the Tavira trip very pleasant.
