New stricter covid regulations were in force when we arrived, so that obviously impacted the hotel and guests but our stay was enjoyable and very covid safe. Breakfast was not just continental but cooked as well. Probably just as well as portugese bread is not to my taste! Incidently, an excellent bakers is down the hill 100 yards away so if breakfast is not to your liking you can have coffee and pastries there. The location is excellent but I must point out that it is on a hill and anyone with mobility issues might struggle. There are literally 20 or so restaurants within 10 minutes stroll so you can eat differently every night. The A/c in the room is the quietest I've experienced and Wi-Fi is good. Not something I usually care about, but having to fill in various covid forms online it was needed. If your covid documentation doesn't meet the new requirements (ours didn't) the hotel does a quick test for the princely sum of 5euros. Special thanks to the two girls on reception when we arrived who quickly sorted this for us. Plenty of umbrellas round the pool, although they are wearing slightly thin. No doubt they will be renewed when the hotel can return to full capacity. All the staff were friendly and efficient and the rooftop bar is lovely. Great escape from the gloom and chaos of the last 7 months!

Great experience , very COVID safe, in fact we stayed at 4 hotels on this trip and two of them were 5 star hotels but none of the others had the COVID protection in place like this hotel. Reception staff always helpful. Our room and bathroom were very clean as was the whole hotel. The buffet breakfast was first class, excellent choices and you were given a packet with knife, fork, spoon and tongs so you could help yourself without sharing the food tongs. Lovely outdoor pool and bar area. This hotel is a very pleasant leisurely walk down into Tavira town with a large choice of restaurants on the way. I am glad we paid extra for a pool view room. Highly recommend this hotel.

We have been going to Tavira since 2015, 4 to 5 a year. It never gets boring, the people are extremly friendly, great restaurants and lovely pubs. We love the local Irish pub, The Black Anchor. Great music and good old Irish craic with Gary Vecey from Achil Island who plays there twice a week. The owner Vinny and Joy and all their staff are great with the customers. Well worth a visit.

stayed in the Maria Nova for 8 nights at the end of June 2021 and had an excellent stay overall. We paid extra for a room overlooking the town and pool which was well worth it. The balcony was well used too as it is quite private from next door rooms. I love swimming and it was literally dreamy to be able to have a swim in the beautiful large pool set in lovely gardens every morning after breakfast. I had to pause and look each time before I started swimming, it was so amazing. The birds come to drink and fly over which adds to the ambience. The rooftop terrace and restaurant are beautiful and allow vistas all rounds, sunset included. Pity meals had to be pre-reserved - we probably would have eaten there more than once if this was not needed. The improvement that needs to be made is to take the fridge in the room out of the cupboard as it does not function properly due to being in an enclosed space and overheating. Once we left the door open it worked much better, but it was still overheating and it needs to be taken out of the cupboard completely. We were even worried about the heat it produces to the extent we switched if off at night. The bed was fine but I have had better (looking for perfection here!) Whilst the hotel decor was first class, the room decor was a bit too brown/beige for me, a bit more white and a picture rather than a blank wall seen from the bed would have been better (again, looking for perfection!). The suites with jacuzzi and rooftop terrace look amazing but at double the price were not value for money for us - we would have been open to offers though, ha ha! The breakfast was excellent with a live piano player sometimes (I think weekends and once a week). A couple of suggestions would be to make the omelettes on demand rather than pre-made to get a better quality and less waste. We missed bananas for some reason despite there being a good fruit selection and the amazing local oranges. Covid measures were extensive and I don't see anyone wanting more! For me I would have rather have had less (!) initial cleaning as I'm more worried about chemicals and the smell of the products was overwhelming in the room - I keep it open as much as possible. Gym equipment was put outside not too far from pool area but had to be pre-booked - so we did not use and so no-one using it during our stay. Parking is limited and sometimes you have to park in the surrounding streets, not a problem at all as you could drop off your stuff if needed. Covid pre-departure tests can be booked for morning appointments at the Germano de Sousa Clinic 5 minutes walk away - easy to fit in. Thank you to all the staff or an excellent holiday!

Hotel is lovely and has all the facilities you would Expect from a 4* hotel chain. however it is severely lacking the personal touch. Staff were not friendly with the exception of the breakfast lady who was lovely, not Adrienne who we found very rude. Having worked in hotels for years it was obvious the staff had a ‘ if it’s not my job I’m not doing it mentality.’ Sunbeds rounds the pool and in the pool were dirty and tables around the sunbeds were filthy and I didn’t see cleaned for the whole 2 weeks I was there. We sat at the same sun bed and the same dirty marks were in the table the whole 2 weeks. There are pigeons everywhere that poo on the side of the pool and in the water, whilst this can’t be helped and is not the fault of the staff there were some days it hadn’t been cleaned. 2-3 days was the longest it wasn’t cleaned and the same poo was in the pool and all over the side of the pool! Gross!! We had sunbeds from 8am till night and could see from our room they were not cleaned despite having 3 bar staff just stood around because the place was empty! Severely lacking customer service skills was the feeling throughout our entire stay with the exception of a couple of staff. I asked to change my room as we were overlooking a car park and the hotel was quiet I was told that was the room I had paid for. I accepted this as we didn’t get an option with tui just the offer of a double room, I was told if I wanted a pool view it would cost me €210!! As we were there for 2 weeks and have had such a crap year and wanted it to be our celebration I paid it, couple of days later I got a marketing email which offered me an upgraded room for an extra €11 per night not €15 so felt a little upset as he could Clearly have done a better price considering the length of our stay! But hey ho live and learn! If you want good service with a smile stay away from a hotel chain and go to a smaller hotel where they actually want your custom.
