"places to stay tavira algarve hotel gale"The eastern area of the Algarve is often overlooked by many holiday makers coming to the region who head instead straight for the holiday hotspots of Albufeira and the central areas of the region.  However there are an increasing number of people who are looking to the east for a more subdued holiday and Tavira is a fantastic destination for this with the Vila Galé Tavira Hotel right in the heart of the city.

Tavira is known for its cobbled streets, Roman bridge over the river and fantastic cultural and historical sites, it is also right by the Ria Formosa natural park, an area of outstanding natural beauty that is protected by law to preserve its flora, fauna and wildlife.

The outstanding natural beauty of the park surrounds the Vila Galé Tavira Hotel which makes it an ideal place for anyone looking to combine the charm of a traditional Portuguese town and history with wonderful beaches and wildlife at the same time.

The Vila Galé Tavira Hotel is a good standard four star hotel that is clean and well maintained.  This is a hotel where the traditional style has been kept which can make it seem a little dark and old fashioned compared to other hotels in the region of the same standard.

While it may be more traditional in its style , this has however meant that the hotel has been able to maintain a real atmosphere and is less clinical then other hotels making it feel inviting and welcoming to families and visitors of all ages and backgrounds.

There are 268 rooms in total in the Vila Galé Tavira Hotel and an additional six junior suites for family groups and each comes with a veranda to enjoy a beverage in the sunshine and all the extras you would expect including satellite television, air conditioning, room service and a mini bar.

The layout of the hotel makes it one that is best suited to those who like to meet others while they are away.  The swimming pool in the centre of the hotel is the main draw during the day and many of the rooms look onto this area giving a sense of community.

For children there is a kids club while anyone looking to be able to get away from it all can head down to the spa for a treatment or a sauna.
In the cooler months it is still possible to swim thanks to the heated indoor pool while there are also plenty of food options available throughout the year with two restaurants (one being a buffet), a bar and the pool bar in the summer.

This is not a high end hotel but it has a lot of charm and has embraced the Algarvian theme of the Moors throughout making it really feel like you are in Portugal and not in just another carbon copy hotel anywhere in the world.

If you are looking for a base to explore he east of the Algarve of simply want to relax by the pool for a couple of weeks then the Vila Galé Tavira Hotel ticks all the boxes and is very reasonably priced too.
