Explore the whitewashed streets of Tavira from a Moorish palace with striking pool, health club and characterful interiors – includes breakfast, welcome drink, spa discount and parking

  • This enchanting building was a former Moorish palace and is just moments on foot from Tavira Castle and the famous Ponta Romana bridge spanning the river. Surrounding the hotel are some of Tavira’s fabulous terracotta-roofed buildings, cascading with hot pink bougainvillea.

  • Though modern inside the hotel is enveloped in old-fashioned charm, with traditionally tiled floors, domed ceilings and bold colours. If you’re staying put, there’s a health club with hammam, hot tub and massages, two swimming pools, lovely gardens and a games room.

  • Head out for days at the beach or the local golf courses and return to delicious Portuguese cuisine a Aladino, the main restaurant. Expect classics like cataplana (clams and sausage cooked in a big copper pan), dried codfish and bountiful breakfasts of pastries, ham, bacon and eggs.
