This small hotel has the advantage of a very attractive location opposite the River Gilão, in the centre of Tavira. Housed in a building of some character, which must have undergone many alterations over the years, judging by the rather complex interior corridors and stairways, is very well looked after. There is a restaurant on the ground floor, although apparently...

This is a nice no frills, value for money hotel in a great central location in Tavira. No noise at nights. I have been twice and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is OK and value for the price paid.

The hotel does not have a lift. Loads of hot water and comfortable bed. Buffet style breakfast with ham cheese eggs and lovely buns fruit, yoghurts. The hotel is old but don't let that put you off it is in a central location.

For a start Tavira is a lovely town with lots to do. The Residencial Mares is right on the river and close to bars restaurants and the town centre. The hotel rooms are basic but very clean and the staff are very helpful and charming. Breakfast is good, cold meats, cheeses, fruit, hard boiled eggs and lovely fresh bread and...

The room was very nice, and I had upgraded to the river view, so was very happy with my view too. The room was a good size, and had a very nice bathroom (which also had a full window and balcony!). The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent with a wide range of breads, pastry, meat,...

Booked this hotel for 4 people - 1 night - 2 rooms. Traditional Portugese style of hotel - bedroom was quite small but adequate for our overnight stay. Breakfast which was included in the cost was great with plenty of choice ie meats, cheese, cakes, toast etc. The hotel is in good location for getting around the town - 5...

A disclaimer first. I was a single traveler so possibly got the smallest and least updated room in this hotel. Good things first. The public spaces in the hotel are beautifully done with tile and wood. There is a nice terrace on the roof with lounges and a view of the river. The location was wonderful, in a quiet part...
