Great location very peaceful .Rooms a good size clean and well equip.Nice sized swimming pool with plenty sunbeds.God quality food from restaurant with very friendly staff.A great place to stay for a quit relaxing holiday.
Went for a relaxing break and it certainly was. All the staff very friendly and helpful. Yes the beds are firm, but no trouble sleeping. the air conditioning is a whizz. pool nice and cool enjoyed the aqua robics and tai-chi. the food is good and varied. the hotel offers plenty of very local trips to do. went to tavira one day, and excursion to sweltering Sevilla. went for a short bike ride, good healthy exercise. its a 4 star for what it offers, not the actual hotel itself but very nice and clean. the TV is Portuguese programmes but who cares. cabanas itself - the beaches are nice, but the village a standard resort nothing special so only went for odd afternoon drink and walk on lovely boardwalk. there isn't really a bar- and the large wooden seats are best avoided. most of all -we have a great time chilling out in the very hot sunshine. going again
The best parts of this short stay were the beautiful swimming pool and the walk along the 'boardwalk', which is a 5 minute walk away. The apartment I had was clean and functional, the bed was really hard and I was pleased I only had to sleep in it for 3 nights. The food was ok - not a huge selection and again for 3 days it wasn't an issue - forget about it if you're vegetarian! The reception staff were very helpful. I was disappointed that there wasn't a lounge or bar area and the building itself was functional rather than inviting. As I was only there for 4 days and only wanted to walk and sunbathe, I didn't go to the beach, which is a short boat ride away, or the many tours offered to explore the lagoon and see flamingoes and dolphins. If I had stayed longer I would've definitely wanted to do those things. I would definitely return to Tavira but would want to stay in a more luxurious hotel/apartment.
The hotel is situated at the end of the road so there are no close hotels which makes it nice and quiet. The rooms are good sized and clean - the beds are a little on the hard side. We had a some meals here and they were all very good, we mainly went into town for the evening meals and there is plenty of choices for good food there. We enjoyed the free little boat trip to the beach - if you want to stay the day on the beach you are better off on the public one as there are no facilities apart from a few sun beds on the there but the public beach has a café and toilets. I think the best thing about this hotel was that there was no sunbed saving. By 10am there were just a few people round there but no towels! We could go to the private beach and still get sunbeds with our friends in the afternoon which made the holiday so stress free!!! Lots of lovely scenery - we saw flamingos one day and also went kayaking.
Private boat to the beach is a plus. Very friendly staff. Kitchen and utilities are good, but no cleaning service for the kitchen (you would expect it for a 4 stars). The gym is a joke, forget about it. Beds could be improved. Not bad, but it's closer to a 3 stars superior, not 4.
We (2 adults and 1 teenager) stayed for a week in July/August having booked the package through Thomas Cook. The hotel was advertised with a 4* rating but unfortunately it really didn't warrant this. It was pleasant enough - nice location, not too far to walk into Cabanas, free shuttle to closest beach, lovely pool with no problems getting sunloungers, reasonable food and drink available (although breakfast was nothing great and we didn't bother with trying the evening buffet as it seemed pricey for what was being offered). The apartment we had was basic but ok although the wifi just didn't work in our apartment and most other places we tried it. However what really let the hotel down completely was the beds which were the worst mattresses we have slept on in probably 20 years! Absolutely no padding so I ended up every night with broken sleep and an increasingly painful back (I was taking painkillers both to get to sleep and then during the day from the middle of the week onwards). The hotel and travel rep were not particularly interested in our situation, providing just a thin slightly padded layer to put under the sheet and then saying nothing more could be done. Overall therefore I'm just frustrated that they can advertise the hotel with a relatively high rating when the beds are such poor quality; when you go on holiday you want at least to get a good night's sleep.
My husband and l stayed here for 5 nights. Lovely hotel with very friendly and helpful staff especially the lady on reception, sorry we didn't get her name but was on duty on 9th July when checking in. Every place very clean. Fabulous pool and although a busy time it was never a problem finding loungers. Apartment well equipped but it is so reasonable to eat out we only had breakfast and light lunches in the apartment. We ate a couple of times in hotel restaurant. Food was both lovely and great value. Excellent service from very pleasant staff. I have to agree with other reviews about WiFi but personally it doesn't bother us for a few days. Nice activities organised by the hotel and day trips also. We took the half day tour to Tavira, well worth the 8e each. Thank you Rostram (hope l have spelt it correctly) for a very interesting morning. The one downside for us was the lack of a supermarket nearer the hotel if only for daily basics. A Spar was about a 15 minute walk away. Not far but in the heat carrying groceries like water, milk etc.it seems longer. Cabanas is such a pretty spot. Lovely restaurants, cafes and quaint shops. Although very busy especially at night there was a lovely and safe atmosphere there. A boat trip on the Ria Formosa is well worth it. Overall a great place for holidays. We liked it so much we have booked it again for later in the year. Really recommended both the hotel and the area for couples and families.
We enjoyed our stay here, fairly peaceful and the hotel pool area was good with no reservation of sunbeds allowed-great policy😀 Two or three: negative points: beds were not very comfortable; it was difficult to cook much in the apartment because of the limited range of facilities and lack of space; restaurant didn't open until 19:30 and had restricted menu. We went to the restaurant in the nearby Golden Club Hotel instead as they offered a buffet every evening-good choice and lovely food.
Great hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are very good, Cleaned every few days, bedroom with twin beds , living room has sofa bed chair flat screen TV CNN and BBC world only English Channels. Dining area is a two ring Halogen Hob Microwave with grill and fridge even has an Iron and Ironing board. Restaurant is A la Carte or Buffet Menu which is a Soup, Salad , Fish Course, Meat Course and a selection of deserts. Buffet is E14 per person reduced for children We ate here several times and the food is very good . Breakfast and afternoon snacks are available Waiters and Bar staff again very friendly especially young lady with a unpronounceable name She said to call her Sneezy. Excursions can be booked at reception there are also free walking tours available from reception, Tia Chi and Aqua aerobics couple of times a week and a small gym. Overall I would rate this hotel as Very Good Hotel runs a free water taxi to the beach Location is a bit out of the way 15 minute walk into Cabanas very flat Cabanas is lovely with most facilities based around the River Front I would recommend Atlantis Pizza and Quasi's at, Taxi back to apartment was E4,70 WiFi is free but a bit hit and miss Definitely recommend for Couples and Family
upon staying in these apartments we found the wifi in our room was very poor we were in the middle of the building .cleaning very basic. english breakfast very poor. continental breakfast very good .evening meal poor . location ok staff very good.car essential has a good walk to village.
