To secure your holiday with us we ask for a deposit payment of 20% of the holiday price followed by the remainder of the payment 8 weeks before the start of your holiday.

Upon full payment and completion of the booking form we will end you meeting arrangments, directions and a comprehensive pack of information on the local area.

We can supply Euro and a sterling bank account for payments although if you wish to pay by credit/debit card we are able to provide you with an invoice using Paypal. You will not need to have a Paypal account to use this facility.

We require a damage bond and this is dealt with by way of a credit card slip with credit/debit card details of any person booked into the property.  If a card is not avaliable then the payment must be in cash and this will be returned via bank transfer once the holiday is over and upon reciept of bank details.

The holiday price includes a mid stay linen change every 7 days for stays of 14 nights or more.

Bed linen, bath and hand towels along with beach/pool towels are provided within the holiday cost. 

WIFI is included but may incur an extra charge please confirm that WIFI is included within the cost of your holiday.

We operate a strict arrival and departure time limit especailly during the summer months.  Arrival is after 1600 and departure is before 1000. For arrivals we are happy to meet you at the property after 1000 to drop baggage etc but then entry can not be gained until after 1600 to allow the cleaners to prepare the property to the exceptionally high standard that we at Mars Algarve pride ourselves upon. Departure is strictly before 1000 and failure to depart on time without prior arrangment will result in a financial charge.

Upon arrival you will be met by one of the very helpful Mars Algarve Team they will hand over the keys to your holiday home and take the time to show you the property and tell you about any local information and answer any questions you may have. The Mars Algarve team will then be on hand during your holiday for any issues that may arise.

Before you arrive, we will send you our new guest online welcome book which is packed with everything you need to know about your holiday property, the local area and has all of the meeting arrangements, directions and how to get the keys. The online book gives you a real insight and allows you to plan your holiday before you even arrive. This also gives you the guest the opportunity to take the book with you wherever you go on your smartphone or tablet, maximising your holiday experience. 

Top Service

Top service, top apartment. A bit noisy with morning supermarket delivery, but where is Tavira not loud in the morning? All in all, very good, including the friendly and helpful care by the staff. We'll be back!

"I would highly recommend staying with this host - the check in was seamless and the flat itself is lovely and well appointed, and is well located in Tavira."

“Great place in the heart of the old town of Tavira” “Thanks again for the wonderful stay and the quick response.”
TobiSep 2018
We enjoyed our time in Tavira very much, and we’re also very satisfied with the apartment!

“This place is a gem. Light, airy, quiet and spacious...... comfortable but firm beds, kitchen well stocked with ample crockery, glasses, cooking utensils and a drip coffee machine...... close to everything.... supermarket, fresh food market (the produce is wonderful.... try the unprocessed honeycomb) ..... wonderful restaurants, shops and ferry. The communication was excellent and very professional. We enjoyed everything about our stay.”

Great Location
“Great location close to centre of Tavira. Nice spacious apartment. There were just two of us staying and suited us perfectly. Would have been equally ideal for a group of four people. Clean and tidy. Close to large supermarket and short walk to the river. We had a lovely mini-break in Tavira and would return to this apartment.”

Spotlessly clean
Great place to stay in a lovely city. The apartment was spotless and in the ideal location - peaceful but near the restaurants and with a supermarket a hundred metres away - the welcome and information were excellent and we plan to return soon. Tavira is a friendly place with things to suit most tastes and a lovely laid-back atmosphere. Birdwatchers paradise.

Great Location
“The Tavira apartment was fantastic. We stayed here with a 4-month old and a 3-year old, and the place was perfect. There was a grocery store right behind the building (for late night diaper runs!), was literally 5 minutes walk from the Tavira Island ferry, and all of the other great restaurants and beautiful sites of Tavira. Claudia from MARS greeted us warmly upon our arrival, and got us quickly set-up in our apartment. The apartment was spotless and roomy, and was well equipped for a beach holiday (including a drying rack on the back porch for wet swimsuits). Loved it! Thank you!”

The website was very good. The booking service was very easy and efficient. The meeting service was very good. Claudia was lovely as I was unwell and the taxi driver could not find the apartment. The property details were very good, indeed the apartment exceeded our expectations for space, comfort and amenities. The property was very clean and tidy. We were very happy there and would thoroughly recommend the apartment to others. Regards Dr Jo Rayner

A great apartment in a great location. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment for us to make brekkie every morning, and being just round the corner from a supermarket was a godsend. The apartment is clean, and although the views aren't great the location more than made up for it. Walking distance to the centre of town and 10 mins from the ferry. A perfect base. The communication leading up to and whilst away were perfect. Our flight was severely delayed, but it was made to be made no big deal by the hosts which certainly took and element of the stress away! I would definitely recommend this place for someone a base in central Tavira. We loved it.
Naomi GaleSep 2016
The apartment was exactly as shown and discribed on the webpage. Our hosts we waiting for us when we arrived and spent time with us explaining the use of appliances and about the area. There is a grocery store less than a block away which is very convenient and it is a short walk to the center of town, if we are in Tavira again we would definitely stay there again.

Friendly host upon arrival. Location excellent as described. Close to beautiful town . All facilities excellent in appt .
Noreen KellyOct 2016
The apartment was beautiful, clean and well appointed with everything we needed during our stay. The location couldn't have been better; it is within walking distance to pretty much all the cafes and restaurants in Tavira and there is a supermarket, Pingo Doce, literally a stones throw away. Our host who met us when we arrived was very friendly and gave us valuable advice regarding the local area. Overall, these things added up to a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday and we would definitely stay here again.
