After travelling by car through Portugal for two weeks, I said goodbye to my fantastic traveling companion and navigator and travelled by train from Lisbon to the Algarve for some much needed R&R.

Lonely Planet at my side, I arrived in Tavira looking to find that special place to spend my last five nights in Portugal. So far the reviews in Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor had not failed to deliver.

After a 5 minute walk from the centre of town, I arrived at the Tavira Inn and I was greeted by my host Sabastiao, and shown to my room. The room had a Mexican Villa feel to it and was bright, spacious & clean. The bathroom was large with an opening window and a heated towel rack, excellent for drying laundry! What a luxury! French Doors opened onto a private balcony overlooking the beautifully landscaped backyard and terrace around a sea water pool. This was truly the nicest room I’d seen during my travels. A perfect little paradise!

I welcomed the opportunity to skip a few traditional morning meals and the mini fridge in the room would be perfect for storing a few snacks and chilling a bottle of wine or beer.

This guest house is also Sabastiao’s home and has a very eclectic mix of furniture and art both of which reflect the eccentric personality of my host. Several beautiful architectural elements some evident, some not, have been put into this home. Sabastiao’s design has enabled him to have his own very private living space both inside and out while hosting guests in five other rooms. Three of the guest rooms have private balconies and the pool and terrace are common areas for all guests to enjoy.

The time I spent in Tavira was the most memorable and relaxing of my three week vacation. I enjoyed beautiful beaches, excellent food, entertaining nightlife and uninterrupted sleeps.

Sabastiao, thank you for your guided tours, your generosity and sharing your love of the classics. You are a wonderful host!

We have just returned from a 3 weeks at the Tavira Inn Hotel. Sebastiao - the owner of the hotel prepared beautiful plece to stay in Tavira. 5 min walk from center of the city, with nice sea-water pool and small but cosy rooms. There is also privat bar with the owner as a masterbarman and excellent jazz music. If you have idea to visit Tavira (beautiful town !!!) you have to stay in this hotel.

Clean, comfortable yet quirky: the small and friendly Inn is a truly relaxing spot minutes from the centre of Tavira. I stayed at the Tavira Inn for a full week and could have made it two! This is not a hotel in the ordinary sense, but rather Sebastiao’s home that he shares with his guests. On the night he opened the bar, reidents of the five rooms were able to meet for a drink and get to know each other whilst listening to some high quality sounds.

The saltwater pool is sparklingly clean and the sunbeds and shady umbrellas offer an irresistible invitation to relax for a few hours between boat trips to the beach on the sandspit island, eating locally caught fish at one of the recommended restaurants or an evening listening to the free concerts in Tavira town.

The Inn is built on different levels into the hillside beneath the train track but rather than detracting from the charm - in my view - the few seconds as the train snaps through the calm adds a certain frisson to the tranquillity that is a feature of the Inn.

I work with children and enjoy the company of young people. but just sometimes it is great to be with adults only. For me it was a real treat to stay in a child free zone! Sebastiao, I will be back...

A great little hotel/Inn in a truly beautiful town.

There is a big pool (10m or so) and pool area which boasts excellent views of the inlet which snakes its way through the old town- just a short 3 or 4 minute walk away.

Sebastion is warm , helpful and friendly host.

The room was large and very clean. There was ample storage space and a small fridge. It had a nice big air conditioner which was welcome.

Tavira was excellent. There are enough services for we tourists but it still has enough local culture and colour (eg the fish market) to make it memorable. Take a trip to the beach or sit at the cafe at Bishop Square and have a few local beers (Super Bock is best).

Tavira Inn is a small Inn with 5 rooms placed in beautiful settings near Tavira. It's an easy walk from the center of the town with it's lovely restaurants, and slightly further away beautiful beach with lovely sand. Back from a day's swimming the Tavira Inn is so relaxing with it's beautiful palm trees and cool patios. It's the typical sort of place you're always looking for but generally don't find. That is if you're like me and don't like staying in big unpersonal hotels. Tavira Inn offers the perfect amount warmth and hospitality, allowing you to feel comfortabel and at ease. However, it must be mentioned, it is near a train bridge, and every now and again you do hear it. Overday it runs about once an hour, or less, and I never heard it at night. As far as I'm concerned worth another stay, and the place to be to escape the hastle of busy life.

Decir que nos hemos encontrado muy bien en este alojamiento. Sebastiao fue muy cortés con nosotros y en todo momento nos ofreció información sobre el entorno, que por otra parte es precioso. La habitación era muy bonita y las vistas al río preciosas. El único incoveniente es el tren... pero no deja de tener su encanto cuando te acostumbras. Muchas gracias

Tavira Inn is a quality small boutique hotel which gives the feeling of being a house-guest staying with friends. It is a great place to rest up and chill out when travelling and a convenient base for daytrips in the Algarve. The pool was an essential for us, as were the local restaurants and cafes. Sebastaio is a fun host and we hope to return. Regards Ian
