Hotel Vila Galé Albacora

Hotel in Tavira

Overlooking Ilha de Tavira 4km east of town, this four-star, 162-room property has been converted from, and ingeniously incorporates, an entire former tuna village, complete with the original school and chapel. Along with sleek modern rooms (the former tuna workers’ living premises), there are indoor and outdoor pools, a spa, two restaurants and two bars. Kids under 12 stay free.
