Lovely place to stay. No breakfast served but so much choice within minutes of leaving the inn as it is a 5 minute walk to the city centre. Parking beside the inn. Room tastefully decorated and very clean. Directly underneath the rail track; train goes by in seconds and barely disturbs the tranquility of the area. Sebastian is a great...

Lovely little hotel for those who prefer somewhere with soul and character rather than corporate luxury. Room was clean and comfortable with good size balcony with views over river. Pleasant pool area with beautifully landscaped surroundings. And great interesting artwork everywhere. Sebastiao, our host, was very welcoming and friendly. All in all, a very pleasant stay.

The owner of this property is a lovely kind and gentle person, who is very helpful. The room was spotless and very comfortable (especially the bed). We stayed in the front room at the top of the property with a lovely balcony with a view over the river. The weather was perfect and what a great place to just sit...

It is a very artful ambiance, the house , the rooms and the terasse with the swimmingpool. Though you get to Tavira center in only a few minutes, the environment of Casa do Rio is calm. The friendly Sr. Sebastião gave us very good tips where to go and where to eat typically portuguese. We liked this place very much...

The inn has some character/tasteful decorations and is located just behind the railway bridge along the river. No more than 2 trains per hour, not late nor very early. Rooms have double glazing also. Not so suitable for handicapped because of stairs. Pool area very cosy, salt water .. very nice, it was still 19 degrees celsius early October, in...

Friendly host, plenty of advice of where to visit. Large seating area around the rooftop pool. Nice views over the river, good value for money. Car parking to the side of the hotel. Noisy during the day from the trains passing but they do stop at night.

Would highly recommend this accommodation. Location is perfect being so central and one of very few central options with a pool. The pool itself is perfect. The house is nicely decorated and our room had a great balcony looking over the river . Sebastiou is a fantastic host. Very helpful in terms of local knowledge and recommendations aswell as being...

We arrived at the Tavira Inn after a long drive from elsewhere in Portugal only to find that our booking had been canceled one day prior by Booking.com for reasons unclear and without notification to us. Our room had been rebooked to someone else. The lady who greeted us was very nice but after a time when the male host...

Dear Traveler You were explained why your reservation was cancel as your credit card was denied. I told you that booking.com was a serious company and has emailed you 2 times regarding this issue without any contest from you. This is not a convenient way of dealing with other parts. Then you argue with an astonishing argument : " even...

stayed a week and had a lovely time. relaxed atmosphere and friendly owner/host. Sebastiao made me feel very welcome without being at all intrusive. really the inn is an extension of his home, and he built it himself, so there is a personal feeling to the place, which is nicely designed with lots of interesting things to look at. the...

Sebastiao is a great host and makes you feel most welcome - we checked in late but her was there to greet us, explain everything and make some recommendations for eating. He has built this place himself and is rightly very proud of it. His place is really quiet apart from the odd train that passes by. Rooms are spotlessly...
