Excellent food, brilliant breakfasts and quality evening meals. Service was friendly but efficient. Rooms were in good order and spotlessly clean. Kettle available in room but guests need to bring your own tea, coffee etc. Each room could do with an A-Z directory of amenities, although staff were only too willing to help. Swimming pool a bonus plus well tended garden with numerous shady nooks.

Good afternoon,

We thank you for your comment :)

We are all glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you used your time spent at the Hotel to explore our garden and the Hotel in its self.
The Country-side, is a magic place!!

Regarding the Kettle in the rooms, it has been all the time more frequent that people bring their own Tee and coffee with them.
But, we have always plenty of verities of Tee and also Coffee in the Bar that you can request whenever you would like to enjoy one of these in your room...

It has also always someone smiling behind the Bar that is ready to serve you.

We really hope to see you again and to welcome you soon in our place!!

We first holidayed here in 2017 and in that review I focussed mainly on the hotel and staff; this review is more about the restaurant. The restaurant has been moved to a much more suitable location and makes for a more pleasant dining experience. As always the owners and staff are very helpful and friendly. The food is superb and you can expect it to be fresh. The fruit, veg, eggs and goat's cheese are very locally sourced within the hotel grounds. The menu isn't hugely extensive, but then you wouldn't expect it to be at a good quality restaurant and the prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is also open to the public, so booking is necessary, even if you are staying at the hotel.
As for prices, well it depends what you choose to eat and how much you drink. There is a tempting wine cellar and reasonably stocked bar that could bump prices up, but for a bottle of low end priced Portuguese wine, it is 10 euros and if my memory serves correctly, a vegetarian main course is between 10-12 euros. For a few more euros each there is chicken or lamb (more choices available this is just what we had). My favourite was monkfish rice and razor clams which was a bit more expensive again. I don't remember what we paid for starters etc, but none of it broke the bank and we ate there five nights on the trot.
As other reviewers have said, this hotel is rural, so it's fantastic the restaurant is so good. Expect to drive a least 5km to find somewhere else to eat. The views are amazing too and later in the evening you can hear the owls!

Room Tip: There are new rooms called Panoramic and they look good

After touring Portugal for a week, we finished our 2 weeks holidays in this hotel and it was just perfect. The rooms (sparkling clean) on the ground floor are big enough for a family of 4, the staff is faultless, always very kind and very helpful. It was really a pleasure to chat with them everyday. The food (breakfast and dinner) was excellent and diverse (and we stayed long enough to test most of it) with very good fresh vegetarian/pescatarian alternatives. Exhaustive wine list. The pool food was very good too. All very well priced. We liked the fact that the hotel was only 10 minutes drive from Tavira, 30 minutes from Faro airport but well isolated from hoards of tourists, quiet and very restful. The pool area and the animals feeding kept the children well entertained. We will try to come back! Thank you for this wonderful relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Families on the ground floor where the biggest rooms are located. All rooms are similar and quiet.

Had a lovely 5 days relaxing at this small rural hotel. Food in restaurant very good, snacks round the pool delightful and served by the lovely Martina (always helpful and a smile on her face). Lovely ambience. Loved the donkey, chickens, geese, peacocks etc, lovely area for the children to visit. Very enjoyable stay.

Helpful staff who took our bags (they were the cleaners, so not normal for them to take luggage to the rooms), nice rooms, good breakfast, nice dinners (though they did forget our reservations) and a good view across the countryside to the sea. Close enough to drive daily to beaches (Isla da Tavira is special, though it requires a short boat trip ).

Stayed: July 2018
