Algarve paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a great week in this lovely apartment. Great views over the coast from the terrace, with some lovely terrace furniture, great to watch the sun go down. The complex has lovely gardens and the apartment is overlooking the pool. Separate French doors from the bedroom onto the terrace giving access from both living room and living area. Tavira is a short walk from the apartment, with plenty of bars & cafes en-route for a pit stop either a coffee or my favourite Sagres. What makes this place great is it’s not over touristic. All in all an excellent stay at the apartment and also the destination. Thank you, we will be back later this year.

Fabulous, beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful apartment in such a lovely relaxing setting. Have never been before on a self catering basis however, what a wonderful surprise, very clean with every type of home comfort you could think of and may I add all working superbly (having read a few other reviews) but if you don't feel like cooking plenty of cafes and restaurants galore. The apartment also boasts it's own Sun terrace for complete privacy overlooking the coast with table and chairs which again may I add were clean and Sun loungers to be able to relax quietly and read my book without disturbance may I add again (No cracks or dirt to be seen) even though the breeze brought a little sand up we just took a brush which is in the well equipped kitchen and swept it away no sand on our sandwiches.

Thanks so much for a lovely relaxing stay will definitely be booking again

Regards Sean and Elaine Quigley

Apartment has great potential but outside area needs attention.

  • 2 of 5

Inside, the apartment is a good size and quite comfortable. . The air-conditioning would benefit from being extended into the bedroom. The washing machine is temperamental . The extensive outside terrace has great potential but there was no shade as both umbrella stands were broken on arrival and the furniture was filthy and not fit for purpose. The seats and sunbeds were cracked and we did not feel safe sitting on them. Improvements would need to be made before we would return.

Owner's Response: Hi Shona, I'm glad you had a good holiday and thanks for pointing out the terrace furniture. After a long season in the heat of the Algarve sun the outside furniture definitely needed replacing which we have now done. It is difficult to keep the terrace perfectly clear of dust and sand as we are facing the sea but we have brought this to the attention of the cleaners. Regards, Sean

Our Stay in Tavira Gardens Apartment

  • 3 of 5

Overall the property was basic it was clean although the oven was dirty. The free standing fan in the bedroom wouldn't function properly until I took it apart and cleaned it. The umbrella on the terrace had no stand to support its weight so couldn't be used. The sheets weren't changed during our 11 day stay lucky we had a washing machine. However we enjoyed our holiday.

Owner's Response: Hi Stuart, Sorry about that. Sheets should be replaced every 7 days, so will check it out as we have to pay for this service. We don't have a fan for visitors, maybe someone took it out of storage, again sorry and will remove it asap. Glad you enjoyed the terrace and had a great holiday.

huge sunny balcony

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in this apartment,Sean the owner was very helpful and gave us lots of info about Tavira,the best beaches,car hire and good places to eat.The apartment is in a lovely location within Tavira Garden complex just a few steps away from the smaller pool which is surrounded by trees and flowers,just great for relaxing.We thought the accomodation was clean and extremely well equipped with everything we could possibly need, but the best part is the huge sunny balcony with views of the national park and the sea ,What a great way to wake up ,, sun shining through the patio doors and the sea sparkling in the distance..We enjoyed the local food in Bica restaurant in Tavira town and also the restaurant in Tavira Garden which has some really good beer!and lovely staff.
