Very tranquil.The pool area was good for relaxation after golf or a days siteseeing . Covenient location for the town centre restaurants etc. A bit formal
this was a luxury stay in authentic impressive understated premises and fantastically located for when you wanted to step out of this chilled oasis and wander the streets.
Nice atmosphere and relaxing
Central location within the city. The swimming pool, when we arrived, was very cloudy and dirty due to what seemed a filtration problem. We did report the problem to the hotel but we were unable to use it during our stay which was very disappointing.
The building is interesting, stylishly modernised and well located. The staff were friendly and attentive. There is a good pool and a gated car park.
Central location and good initial reception. Parking was easy. Splendid, delicious breakfast. Lovely outdoor pool. Twin room, wasn't offered a double. Internet connection was difficult to obtain and when available, couldn't access any web site. Air conditioning was too cold, so had to turn it off. Window in the bedroom wouldn't open. The lock around the bedroom door was damaged and suggested that someone had tried a forced entry at some point.
It was very relaxing in the most wonderful building The only complaint was the price of drinks
The sense of calm and luxury. The room layout and view over the trees (Room No. 3). The orthopaedic kingsize bed, crisp sheets and pillows. The cuisine (a bit expensive) and the wonderful Arabian night with authentic music and dancing. The Pool area is very exposed and windy and the 'garden' looks unfinished and needs landscaping and care. Too much air-conditioning which wasn't needed.
The staff is outstanding, the place is fantastic, great value for money, breakfast buffet (included in the price) is perfect, beds and sheets are very comfortable, good TV choice, room is well insulated, we highly recommend it We find the restaurant (a la carte) expensive if compared with restaurants in the area / the room lacks an electrical outlet for the laptop besides the internet outlet
Quality of staff ,service and location. lack of drawer space
Rigtig dejligt sted med gode store lyse værelser. Lækker morgenmad og fin restaurant.
Dejlig morgenbuffet, fint poolområde med gratis håndklæder, rummelige værelser. central beliggenhed. Der skulle være flere solsenge ved poolen, og større udvalg i minibaren.
Venlig og imødekommende personale, dejlig atmosfære, gode faciliteter, tæt på centrum,
Behageligt sted, ingen støj trods mange mennesker og biler. Rustikt portugisisk miljø, hyggeligt, rent og pænt overalt.
Den gode beliggende i rolige omgivelser og tæt på lækker strand, at de har købmand restaurant, bar etc.
Helt afgjort arkitekturen og fuglelivet. Også de grønne plæner, gamle oliven- og korkegetræer samt buske af Hawaiblomster osv. Morgenmadsbuffeten er fremragende. De radmagre katte og enkelte syge katte
Meget central og charmerende beliggenhed. Lidt mindre "turistet" end andre steder på algarvekysten. Aircon på værelset.
Beliggenheden var fin. Byen meget charmerende. Værelset lidt mørkt. Dobbeltsengen meget smal.
Hotellets beliggenhed perfekt. Hyggelig by uden al for megen "turistsminke". topservice i receptionen.
Beliggenhed, renlighed og lækker morgencomplet Intet
Selv om vi udtrykkeligt havde bedt om et roligt værelse var vi de første nætter meget plaget af støj (høj musik mv) fra den nærliggende bar. Så fik vi et andet værelse langt fra baren og det var vi meget tilfredse med. Lydisolering af baren.
Vi valgte Albacora fordi min mand er dårligt gående, og havde brug for optræning ved bl. a. opvarmet pool, + nemt tilgængeligt værelse. Vi ville gerne have haft gelændere til trapper til haven. V i ville gerne have set daglige Portugisiske specialiteter på menuen.
Very nice and tastefull room, fresh, no need of aircondition and good location.Owner very friendly and hospital.In the old Bathroom it works all. You need to get prepared to undergo the noisy train passing a very few times on the metalbridge but already from 6h in the morning.Some breackfeast or a way to have the possibility to prepare yourselff some thea, toasts would be nice.
It was very central The room was dark and damp and there was no plug for the bath
very quiet no
We loved about everything at the Tavira Inn "Casa do Rio". Factually: 1) Nice room, with superb decorations; 2) The wonderful sea water pool; 3) The gentle host Sebastiao Bastos; 4) The proximity of Tavira's town center. We didn't miss the lack of a breakfast included, since there are lots of places near the hotel. Nothing worthing mention.
We liked the owner,the river view, the swimming pool,and the location as it was close to bars and restaurants.
The peace and tranquility with a lovely pool area. The prices charged at the bar compared with other bars in Tavira.
The manager Lack of breakfast
large rooms, quiet, parking! breakfast at the hotel would be nice!
Our host, Sebastio, is the best thing about this hotel, treating the two of us like personal guests rather than mere room occupants. From the time he volunteered to pick us up at the train station to complementary drinks in his private bar, to bar-hopping together at night to chauffeured outings to the beach and the countryside, to our last Tavira coffee together in the town square before he roared off on his Harley Davidson, we had his personal attention. Bravo y obligado, Sebastio! The only negative was that we had only two days there.
It was in a good location We were allocated a room on the 1st floor which was severly lacking natural light, smelt damp and the bed linen was musty. I asked for another room and was told nothing available but in the morning we paid more and were given a room on the 2nd floor which had a balcony and more natural light. The bed and pillows were uncomfortable and the towels smelt musty. Shower was good, we didn't use the pool so can't comment on that.
Very peaceful place but near of Tavira. The acceses to the hotel.
I liked the fact that it was near Tavira and yet quiet. Also, it so a fair distance from my favorite beach, Cacela. My room was big and quite comfortable, and the bed was wonderfull. The bathroom was also very nice I think they really need to improve the acess road to the hotel and I would have liked a pool. Also, I think the surrounding garden needs some improvement
A beautiful spot and made to feel very at home.
friendly staff, nice breakfast, lovely view, peace and quiet. Great place for couples, families and everyone who desires nice break from a hectic life. I spent there very romantic time with my girlfriend. It was excellent choice :)
wonderful location, facilities, staff is very nice
The very kind reception and personal appraoch of the landlady. Just not everything was ready. Ther were some works on a terrace. Not to disturbing!
The rural setting and relative closeness to Tavira for restaurants and bars
Lounging, swimming and relaxing
The design of the hotel, the staff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast outside, atmosphere of relaxation, free use of internet on a pc. Dogs barking occasionaly, our room (nr. 7) was a bit small and the location is quite isolated. Always take your car to go a restaurant (hotel offers free bikes, which is nice)
We had the most amazing time at Vilacampina. Sofia was a wonderful host and all the staff were so friendly. Astrid in particular was so helpful and polite. The room was amazing, and the site the guesthouse is situated on is beautiful. The area by the pool is lovely, and the whole place is decorated with care and finesse. Go and stay there, you will love it. No, nothing at all
We wanted somewhere to relax and certanly found that at the Vilacampina. Sophia and all her staff were very helpful and friendly. Would go again next week!
The absolute quiet and surinity of the place was wonderful. The staff are friendly and informitive. Everything is within a few kms distance.... beach, golf, restaurants!! Vilacampina is fantastic! The pool is not heated.
Everything!! We ar egoing back soon and staying longer,
Wonderful welcome from charming owner. Beautifully maintained and equipped. Exceptional breakfasts. Extremely comfortable 'beautique' small hotel.
It was perfect! Sophia is so hands on with the guest that I felt apart of the family. Would definitely return. leaving
Service was attentive. No
The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was great!
God og venlig betjening af ejeren selv. Hvert værelse havde en hylde i et køleskab, hvilket er dejligt til vand, drikke varer eller hvad man ellers har lyst til at opbevare koldt i et varmt klima. Der er også mulighed for selv at lave et enkelt måltid eller grille, og så nyde måltidet på den hyggelige terrasse. Dette er mere et luksus Bed & Breakfirst end et hotel. Meget hyggeligt og romantisk.
wonderful people, location and breakfast. The hotel is charming. we would go back No
Beautiful location, superb food and caring and attentive staff. Ideal for quiet luxurious getaway.
Everything was superb.
Quinta da Lua was perfect in every way. The gardens were lovely, there were areas in the shade, hammocks, sunbeds round the beautiful pool. The rooms were bright and clean very modern. The breakfast were delicious. We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a quiet break away in perfect surroundings.
The hospitality is unsurpassed. The breakfast is something special. If Quinta da Lua was in Ireland it would definitely be in the blue book. standard.
A beautiful hotel with fabulous gardens, a 24 hour honesty bar, friendly staff/owner and sensational breakfasts
Very friendly reception. Beautiful rooms and gardens. Good location.Very relaxed. The waitress at breakfast was very pedantic - her way or the wrong way.
A delightful, quiet and private location in a rural setting. It is only a relatively short drive to a number of Algarve beaches and nightlife - but without the noise, people and resort atmoshere. Although the facilities are communal, there was no sense of proximity to other guests. The breakfast in the garden setting was delightful. Nothing.
Everything at the hotel was excellent, the staff, food, service, facilities, pool etc. The hotel was close enough to the beaches, Tavira and the Spannish border, however a car is recommended. We had peace and quiet, apart from some local dogs barking, and really enjoyed our stay. Would stay again. Nothing
The hotel was superb and well exceeded our expectations. All the food was perfect including dinner. A perfect gem with food to die for! Wasps were a problem at breakfast but we discovered that most could be lured away from the table by placing meat a short distance away. Perhaps consideration could be given to attracting the wasps away from the breakfast area on a permanent basis.
the quality of the staff was very good the room cleaning left a lot to be desired, not enough toilet paper and the cleaner left paper on the floor the whole time we were there
No nonsense service - local to town centre Prices for drinks and snacks seemed a little high
Well situated,clean and tidy Hotel was noisy at times
very noisy room!
Staff very friendly and hotel spotless Noise from adjoining room,poor insulation
The Rustic Style, privacy. Very beautiful decoration. The duplex only had one heater and was very cold in November, no additional blankets also did not help. Gate very difficult to open. The internet was not wireless and the cable was to short to allow the use of the pc comfortably. But I would recommend as these issues can be solved easily.
We travelled for several weeks in Spain and Portugal and Forte De Sao Joao Da Barra was our absolute favorite place to stay. The tranquility, privacy and luxury of the Forte combined with the easy walking distance to the beach and town made this a perfect place. The views from the Forte are unbelievable. The hotel is mainted to perfection and the architecure and accomodations are magnificant. Perfect. Nothing
If you are concerned about ambiance, setting, friendliness and something more than ordinary, you must stay here. The old fort setting is phenomenal. Sitting on the old fort walls having breakfast or a cocktail while overlooking the Isla de Tavira and the Atlantic was breathtaking. Cabanas de Tavira is a small tourist beach town where we had several good meals, met some very nice locals and is totally different than the old Fort. I would think that this B&B is more suitable for couples than families, but given that if I ever return to Cabanas I will surely bring my children so they can experience this as well. Trying to locate the elusive Sr. Gabriel. We found it easier to pay for water service than wait for the paid person for the hotel to return from his seemingly endless breaks.
The staff was accomodating and knowledgeable of the region. The forte is rustic, unique and intriguing. The hotel is secluded down a dirt road, but has it's own character. It is not on the beach, rather it is perched above the water (as a forte). The rooms do not have veiws, but are very upscale.
fabulous venue, would recommend it to others breakfasts were a bit basic, some fresh fruit, eggs or salad would have been appreciated
An amazing location with unbelievable, very quiet with a very friendly hostess. The breakfast was a bit bored.
Rent og pænt. Komfortable værelser. Godt som base. For upersonligt efter min smag til længere ophold.
Super skøn lejlighed til 2 voksne og 2 børn. Flotte omgivelser og en dejlig svimmingpool. Ca. 1 km. ind til hyggelig by med mange restauranter og rimelig kort afstad til skønne strande. Modtagelse i receptionen da vi ankom. En del regler omkring svimminspoolen, hvis man ikke har bil er der langt at gå til by og strand.
