We are Tavira regulars and have wanted to stay at the Calcada Guesthouse for ages - having been inside and seen how lovely it is - and how well located for the centre of Tavira and boats to the beach. We almost got there this year but couldn't make it in the end. Tamsin and Andy were absolutely great to deal with though - highly professional - and we are hoping to stay with them next year. Everything suggests it is a great choice for those who put authentic Portuguese decor and architecture above soulless modern hotels!

I've been in Calcada Guesthouse for 5 nights and I couldn't be more satisfied.
It is very clean and well decorated, with very stylish common areas: a big living room with sofas, books, tv and coffee/tea/milk/water always available. There's an inner garden but the best part is the terrace, with white sofas, a solarium area and a hammock. We've spent some pleasant hours there, having a coffee or talking to other guests. You can also hang your stuff to dry.
Talking about rooms, they are spacious and clean. Everything has been studied in details and the bathroom is big and well planned, with complementary fancy shower gels from London. Rooms are tidied up every day and towels are changed on a daily basis.
Andy and Daniel have been very nice and helpful. Andy also gave us some touristic info, a map and tips.
The only "negative" aspect is that we had some difficulties to pay by credit card as the tool was not working properly and we had to try several times with different cards. If they fix this aspect, it'll be flawless.
Paying by credit card (multibanco in Portuguese) is not very easy and as common as in many other European countries.
The location is very central and close to the bus station (very close) and the city centre.
We would definitely come back.

We had a lovely stay here in July. Andy and Daniel are helpful hosts and the guesthouse has a wonderful energy about it. The rooms are pretty large, very clean and serviced each morning. The aircon in the room was perfect after being out in the sun all day! Many great restaurants and bars just around the corner. Finally that terrace is amazing! Stay there: you won't be disappointed!

This is a fabulous guesthouse. My wife and I keep coming to Calcada year after year as the service, the facilities are absolutely perfectly. The house sits right in Tavira's historic centre. It has been designed and built with excellent care and taste. The rooms are lovely and well decorated and are simply so confortable. The terrasse is a delight where discussions with other guests easily starts. The breakfast is home made and delicious. We have already came three times and will come again as the owners and their amazing staff always care for us. A must in Tavira !!!

We stayed here for a week and could have stayed weeks longer. If you are looking for a friendly atmospheric and personal place to stay then this is it .Perfectly sited for all of the restaurants and other attractions . Andy, Daniel and Andrea made each guest feel very special and it is obvious why fellow guests we met were all on their third visit here. Perfect town with perfect accommodation.
