Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Pedras del Rei is suitable for families who look for rest and stillness. They are housed in small white cottages in the heart of a well maintained flowery park planted with trees. A playful point in the stay : the small train that drives you to the beach.

    Location 3.05 /10

    The Pedras del Rei is in the countryside near Santa Luzia in the municipality of Tavira, 3 miles away from downtown, 600 m away from the nearest beach, 22 miles away from Faro airport, and two steps away from the Formosa Nature Reserve, a preserved lagoon area. To get there, follow the directons to Tavira and then the road to "Pedras d'el Rei".

    Accommodation

    We were unable to visit apartments but after viewing pictures and getting information, we can say they are comfortable and modern. The 725 apartments are located on two floors. They each have a room with a lounge area, a bathroom with a shower or bathtub, a hair dryer, a TV, a telephone, a kitchenette with a stove and a refrigerator and a balcony or terrace with a view of the park, garden or sea. Maximum capacity : 2 adults and 1 child.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    No less than 725 apartments located in a beautiful park. An outdoor swimming pool with a well-fitted out solarium, deckchairs and sunshades awaits for you should you not want to go to the beach, located 600 m away.  Bars and restaurants   offer diverse catering services. 
    For kids, there is a miniclub for 3 to 12 years old children  beginning in May :  an international team welcomes children and offers them a large range of activities and games on the beach and in the swimming pool. The mini-club is open from 10 to 12:30 and from 15:00 to 18:00.
    As for activities, there is a lot to choose from between land and water sports !

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The   half-board formula serves its meals at the main restaurant Val d'el Rei with substantial buffet-style breakfast and dinner offering international and Portuguese dishes. A kids' menu is also available Open all year round, the piano-bar has musical nights several times a week in July and August. Only open in summer ( depending on the weather), the Nora bar, near the swimming pool, serves snacks and light meals. There is a bar restaurant on the beach, open in July and August.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    Of course, Praia do Barril beach is located 600 m away from the apartments. But don't panic ! A small train allows you to go there every few minutes. ?f you are a little hungry and if you are there in July/August, you are lucky ! Restaurants and bars await for you directly on the beach ! The beach is pleasant and has different water sports.

    To know

    The Pedras del Rei offers quiet, isolated vacations which suit those who take their time during their vacations. The beach is 600 m away and, of course, accessible by train, but not just opposite. A detail not to neglect if you are looking for a rapidly accessible beach...

      A smart and contemporary home away from home for travellers in need of full-on rest and relaxation. Let the soothing spell take over as you arrive and give in to the tranquil atmosphere as the daily stresses of everyday life slowly melt away. Staying here is like spending time at a friend's house for the weekend. Located in Luz de Tavira, a small village 20 minutes away from Tavira in eastern Algarve, close to the coast, Vilacampina is a large house that is run by Sofia, also the owner; she is very passionate about giving her guests the best. Ideal for couples looking to get some quality time together, but as the house is quite a small property in comparison to a hotel the setting is quite an intimate one and therefore wouldn't be suitable for rowdy children.

      The Vila Galé Tavira is open all year-round, unlike its sister hotel, Albacora, in Quatro Aguas just outside of Tavira. A resort hotel located right in the new centre of Tavira, it is an old-fashioned hotel with dated décor. However, even if you are not a big fan of resorts in general, it can be a good base to explore the area from, but to spend all one's time onsite might be a little depressing after a while due to its lack of ambience, dark interiors hiding from the harsh sun, and dull colours used.

      • Easyopinions -
      • Value for money 8.08
      • Location 7.0

      A charming, authentic and stylish 17th century Portuguese guesthouse that wins our hearts hands down in terms of places to stay in Tavira. If what you are after is living the life like the locals, then the Casa Beleza do Sul is the place to stay. Originally a large family home that has been estimated as dating back to the late 1800s, Paola and her husband, both architects, built the house into what it is today together. Located on a narrow cobbled city centre street, the house chimes with impassioned debates usually about football from the bar just across the street, or the sounds of children playing along the streets, the house lives to the rhythm of the community. The best of the Casa? Its roof-top balcony looking over Tavira's peculiar square rooftops and of course, its lovely rooms, which are all different and very stylish. This is the perfect place for couples, but as the house has an intimate atmosphere, it isn't ideal for noisy guests/groups.

      • Easyopinions -
      • Value for money 7.02
      • Location 1.0

      A charming and historical upmarket and slightly eerie place to stay, the Pousada Convento da Graça (or Pousada Tavira for short; and 'pousada' pronounced 'posada'), is an 18th century convent that was converted to a hotel and opened in 2001. The peaceful but slightly cold pousada (large house in English) is laid out around an angular cloister, but is nevertheless a charming place to stay that stands out from the rest. Set by Tavira castle in the old part of town where cobbled streets lead to quaint parks. This is the place to stay if you want to immerse yourself in local culture while staying at an upmarket hotel within the village itself. Although the hotel doesn't refuse children, it is more of a place for couples or friends due to the general quiet atmosphere, even in high season.

      One of two Vila Galé hotels in Tavira, the Albacora Hotel is situated outside the village on a sand bank lining the river Formosa that crosses Tavira just steps away from the ferry that takes guests to the various islands in the area. The area looks extremely quiet and calm - an ideal retreat for those in need of some quality r and r, however, from end of May till September, the area is seething with tourists. The Albacora ('Albacora' meaning tuna fish in English) used to be a fishing settlement, which was converted into a hotel. Out of the way and close to the beach, the hotel is ideal for families needing the convenience of onsite facilities while remaining in remote natural surroundings.

      Far from crowds of frenzied tourists, the charming little house sits on a hill flanked with orange groves as far as the eye can see and right in the centre of beautiful wild natural gardens teeming with birds and butterflies. The Casa del Rei is a good example of some of the comfortable guesthouses that are springing up all over the Algarve. Located in the east of the Algarve close to the village of Tavira, beaches are within a short drive. A warm welcome from Geraldine and Robin, a British expatriate couple, makes guests fee at home right away. An ideal place to come to wind down for a few days. The casa is great for couples looking for a bit of peace and quiet.

      Tavira House is a discreet contemporary boutique guesthouse nestled in one of Tavira's residential streets. Extremely well-renovated, the 19th century house is a home away from home for a high-end clientele that likes things simple, neat and fuss-free. Comfortable with kitsch 'Austin Powers-esque' touches, the house is a great base to explore the rest of the area from. An ideal pied à terre for a wide-ranging clientele, from couples to families.
