Breakfasts excellent and great to sit beside the window on the top floor sipping coffee and watching planes approaching the airport, with the marina below. Overall the hotel provides very good for money. Internet booking saved about 7 euros per night While we were there we booked an extra night for a fortnight later and were given suite style accommodation for that night, which was excellent recently refurbished accommodation. Swimming pool on the roof is a real bonus, with excellent views across the coastline. Accommodation very central, excellent position.There is a busy street below and the main bus and coach station, however, two layers of double glazed doors and thick curtains means that sleep is not a problem Other guest reviews I had seen were not as positive about the hotel as I thought they could be. Unable to get a marina side view even though requested in email.
Good location yet very quiet Don't know why we weren't given a balcony when we paid for most expensive room and hotel was far from full
the location very poor service for a 4 star hotel: no working safe in the room, a mini bar with 3 bottles of water, no working internet service.....
We selected hotel EVA in Faro for location and value for money. Both were excellent. The hotel is in the same building as the bus station for the lines from faro to Sevilla, Spain, and at the same time 200m from the old town. Internet should be free of charge, as there is no running cost for it. Safety box in room was not large enough for my laptop.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the short distance to local bars,restaurants and shops was a bonus.
The gym WiFi access not available
Hotel Eva is a very pleasant place with helpful staff and great facilities, which makes it an ideal place to stay in faro,If their is a down side it would be that their can be some street noise but this depends on which room you are staying in as to the level of noise that you will hear.
practice sports in hotel Gym
Staff were really great, location was good, beds were reasonably comfortable although it was two singles and as we'd just got engaged we wanted a double. Wifi didn't work, beds were crammed in- and there were three, when we only needed the one double- room service selection was really poor, facilities were ok but the pool was absolutely freezing, shower leaked everywhere and the bathroom grouting had mould growing on it, room temperature control didn't work so on a hot day was pouring out hot air into the room...to say it was a four star hotel it has two star qualities. Be glad the staff are fantastic because the rest of it was really poor. Would definitely never go back.
Great view , good location in Faro, very nice spa .
Breacfast on the 4th floor with nice view to the salt marshes I did not now do I need to pay additionally for drinks from refregerator or it is included in price
Convenient location, very clean and comfortable room found the sound proofing minimal with noticable noise from adjacent rooms
The location and the design of the hotel.
Good location, easy to find easy to check in and out nice scenery at the breakfast room air-condition was poor carrage was expensive (10 e/ngt), same as bigger cities
Good Location Information pack in room not good
comfortable and relaxed.Friendly staff who are helpful. Breakfast prepared too far in advance.could be varied.Car park too expensive and poor design
No bedside table No facecloth No tissues Very minimalist decor
We liked the location, the view from our room to the marina, the excellent rooftop restaurant,the friendliness of the staff.
No room service menu - only on bar menu which was ham & cheese or cheese & ham sandwiches!;
Great location in the centre of Faro with stunning coastal views from rooftop the Restaurant The noise from the town square can be an issue in the early hours
It was unpretentious and great value for money. The breakfast was excellent.
Staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was great. Hotel is in nice quiet location close to the centre of Loule
Friendly and kind staff. Good room service. Not very impressed with coffee machines in breakfast room. When I wanted to buy water or a drink from the bar, there was rarely change available, and cost had to go on my bill. I prefer to pay as I go. Television channels different in both rooms I stayed in. Perhaps televisions could be retuned?
The hotel was very comfortable and clean
the location being in the town
Location, room and staff were all brilliant!!!!
It was very relaxed and comfortable. The staff were very helpful.
A very well located and friendly hotel, with a good breakfast included. We had a room with a huge balcony overlooking the city. The pool is also very nice. The restaurant close by (Alfonso III) is very good value.
Convenient for business trip in Loule. Friendly staff. Parking difficult.
Cleanliness of rooms was excellent, location was ideal for exploring the town Couldn't fault it for a short stay but not a place to stay if you want anything other than a base
Accessibility A bit old fashioned
Great facilities at a great rate and staff very accomodating. N/A
great area, pool area great and location was super TV was not clear, toilet seat kept falling down rooms a bit shabby,
The birds and the trees. The people of the front desk. They tried to charge me with the telephones calls that are toll free. They are very rude.
The villas are comfortable, nicely refurbished and quite attractive. I did not have hot water in the first day which meant having cold showers... something that I always detested, even if after a lovely day at the beach
Nice spacious suite, well equipped, great resort facilities. We felt we were more nuisances than guests at Bobby's restaurant.
The accessabilityto local shops, restaurants and seafront. The smart appearance and politeness of the staff. Newly refurbished to a high standard. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
great value for money, good room, not big for 2, but ok. Breakfast is nourishing, the hotel has its own confectioner, all the bakery is very delicious, especially Portuguese national round cakes with custard. The hotel is near to the centre and city mall with shops, pastelarias and small restaurants they have no ironing room or at least iron. Also there is no computer with i-net. So if you are unlucky to travel without netbook, prepare to look for an i-net cafe.
Excellent location and very clean. Also, all facilities are in hotel for food and beverage.
Proximity of excellentn restaurants and services Parking problem (no street parking aside from 2 spots)
Location, cleanliness, staff Not applicable
We have been travelling around Italy, Southern Spain and Portugal for three months and this hotel is easily the best value for money accommodation we found. Staff are wonderful, very friendly, professional and always anxious to help. The hotel has a nice restaurant with a set menu (changes daily) of a three course meal with either a fish or meat dish for seven and a half euros. They also have a great (and cheap) coffee shop with some of the best cakes we could find. We stayed four nights and wished it had been more. Faro is a lovely little town where you can spend quite a few days looking around and just taking it easy. We met people who have been coming back to this hotel for years and we can understand why.
Family room, clean, well equipped. One of the staff members at the reception desk was kind of rude. The rest of the staff was good. The room we stayed in was tiny. The pillows were very old and unconfortable.
nice staff, esp at reception, spoke fluent English, well situated hotel, clean and modern it was like it was still undir construction, not complete, the breakfast was not so interesting
location was tops ,staff more than helpful and it met all my requirements of my holiday Balcony door did not shut properly , was no security risk but noise was a slight issue room 207
great location. very competent courteous and helpful staff. excellent breakfast! rooms were exceptionally clean and provided all amenities. would highly recommend great value for a stay in Algarve
The quaintness and character of the house, both inside and out. There were no credit card facilities and the pool was neither heated (as advertised) nor particularly clean. As an aside to the hotel itself, the neighbouring church chimes its bells on the hour and half hour too which can be a bit disruptive if you want an afternoon snooze by the pool!
It was a perfect Portuguese hotel set in a small agricutural town with fantastic staff , a lovely room and balcony, small pool set within a relaxing courtyard. Very atmospheric and delightful.
the staff were very attentive and they had a pool table and a number of chess boards just laying around the place, it feels like your at home, there was a lot of traffic sound, you are surrounded on all sides by road and they tend to fly around reving the engines a lot,
wonderful hotel full of nooks and crannies to explore.great service,nothing is too much trouble.Very helpful manager who is very welcoming and friendly.Had a great stay as it is a great location for airport,motorway and Faro.excellent base. Somewhat noisy rooms opposite village square. breakfast ok for short stay,but became boring after fourteen days
Beautiful house - lots of history and nicely appointed rooms.
The hotel staff was very helpful and we enjoyed staying there a lot. The hotel is very beautiful, its swimming pool is great too. If bored its possible to play pool or chess. The city where hotel is located has a nice atmosphere. Having a car is a must.
Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast and a great house. Rental car recommended. Great place to relax.
friendly and helpful manager; excellent breakfast; very nice interesting town.
The management immediately make you feel welcome. The hotel is beautifully appointed and the staff excellent. Everyone shares their days' experiences at breakfast or in the comfortable bar/lounge in the evenings. Nothing to fault.
Set in a quiet village it was like stepping back in time on passing through the Doors of Casa de Estoi. Fabulous hotel superbly clean All the staff made us feel welcome and spoke good English.Perfect spot for a quiet weekend getaway.
The welcome that we had when we booked in. The staff could not do enough for you or give you a cleaner, nicer room.
Very close to Faro airport. The hotel was a very positive surprise, big rooms, breakfast from 4am, helpfull reception staff, very good food at the restaurant.
The price v service ratio is excellent and exceeded expectations. The rooms were clean. It was quite noisy at night added by fridge in room.
Thje size of the rooms and cleanliness Perhaps a softer bed.
+ close tho the airport + clean rooms + rooms are comfortable + very friendly hotel staff +/- no elevator, using stairs with luggage to go to the first floor. However, for us no problem at all. Hotel staff is very friendly and will help people who want/need it. +/- no dedicated no smoking rooms. When letting staff know preference no-smoking, they will accompany you and make sure you get an odor-free room.
Very convenient for Faro Airport
Great location for early Faro departure. Hotel, modern and spotless, staff were extremely helpful, evening meal excellent value, breakfast great variety. Nothing at all.
The convenience to airport. The restaurant although we didn't eat in it looked to be very good. Bit vague in identifying hotel. Seemed more like a restaurant from exterior.
proximity to Faro Airport and ease of check in Web site should provide full directions from the airport
Clean, large rooms. Noise from the street
Very convenient for airport for early or late arrivals and departures and have used it for most of these situations. Also good value as it is well placed for motorway connections, also Faro centre. Nothing
We needed a hotel near to the airport and were more than pleased with Hotel Monaco. Friendly efficient service, good quality room, good breakfast choice. Helpful with booking a taxi the next morning.
Nothing exceptional and not a hotel to go on holiday too. I was away for business and it was ok. construction work and no bar.
Very good welcome & service. Very comfortable room. The staff looked after my expensive jacket that I left behind. We had to take a smoking room as very few non smoking rooms.
location for seeing area round Faro
A very good little hotel in the medium price range, with good facilities including a nice restaurant.. I particularly chose this hotel as it was advertised as having a shuttle service, but when I asked to use it, I was refused because I needed it at 08:15 to go to the airport and this was too early.
Hotel Monaco went above and beyond what we were expecting. We read the reviews on here and thought we would take a chance as we were on a budget. The hotel was impeccably clean though, with new feeling linen, fresh looking interior and decor to match. The room was really nice, and big, with a balcony (you must ask for a balcony room), and there is buffet breakfast every morning which is actually very good!! There is fresh fruit, cereals, milk, nesquik, tea, coffee, scrambled eggs, fresh rolls, ham, cheese, sausages, yoghurts and juice. A great way to start the day!! We had no problem with noises, and the cleaners were very trustworthy and did very good jobs on the room daily. The staff were all helpful and very kind. Fantastic!!! The sausages and croissants at breakfast, though everything else was perfect!! I did think the hotel was a little closer to faro centre, but the courtesy bus which was available almost every time we needed it was very good. Even if it's not - its only 5 euro to get to the centre.
Overall experience and the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. Fruit juice at breakfast was not fresh - it was clearly orange squash.
Perfect for Overnight for an early flight next morning . Food choice not very good. I had a hamburger , very average .
The pool area was good Unable to get hot water from reception, at 6.30am, to heat up babys bottle and no hot water in room.
Very quiet, close to some good restaurants, convenient for golf and beach along the Algarve coast. Nothing
The staff were happy to help whenever you needed them and the breakfast in the morning was always nice! I would advise anyone staying here to get a car as it is expensive to always use cabs!
the pool the beds hard and two singles pushed together
Good welcome,, nice room and breakfeast. Well located and nice place, near of the beach. Very attractive price. The personal is really professional and sympathetic. Recommended! Anything all was perfect!
Good place to stay near Vilamoura and Albufeira for a cheap price
Good value for money Lack of English-speaking receptionist
Friendly staff, good standard of existing facilities, pleasantly situated in quiet village. Handily placed for access to coastal resorts provided you have a car Bar only open on request. No restaurant other than buffet breakfast facility and few caf�s or restaurants in walking distance
no problems no
attention and help of the staff
Breakfast, Cleanliness Small tv, Bit Noisy
It's close to all places important in algarve. Rooms are not clear for a 4 stars.
No hastle No
it was clean, comfortable, good location, close to airport and walkable to all town amenities.
The hotel was very quiet and we had view on a church from our window. Someone walked into our room straight after we checked in - we think that it was cleaner.....
Everything was ok, we stayed there very shortly but it was clean, easy to find,
The cleanliness of the hotel was superb and the staff knowledge was excellent, providing maps and showing you where everything was. The lack of facilities at the hotel was disappointing, there was nothing to do when the weather was bad and I am pleased I didn't have the children with me because that would have been a nightmare.
parking and cenral
The room door lock was pretty poor and staff merely showed me how to open it with my shoulder
The room was quite big. It had a separate living room as well a jacuzzi. The breakfast was excellent. It is a bit far from the bus/train station. It was a bit difficult to find it.
The rooms are spacious, clean and the hotel is very quiet. The staff are nice and helpful and the location is good, about 10 minutes walk to the city center. The only thing I didnt like too much was the breakfast, as it is very basic. A bit more choice and variety would be really good.
Friendly and helpfull staff.
The hotel staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We had a wonderful stay and the hotel was very central and only a short walk from the town centre.
Great location, very close to the bus station and old town. good price. Poor sound isolation of the room. could appreciate if they changed towels for the 4 days that we stayed
Nice location, not too far from the train station but that's about all it has going for it... there are better options nearby. Rooms are tiny, no real views or atmosphere. For the budget conscious only.
Friendly and helpful staff rooms were quiet, Use of large terrace very central Price was brilliant. I would stay here again Rooms were very small and the facilities were very basic, which was reflected in the price. Good value for your money.
Staff were friendly with very good English.
narrow path to reach the room on the balcony and no lift
This hotel was a great disappointment. The only good thing about it was its close proximity to the marina and old town. There were so many stairs to climb and no offer of assistance with our bags. There was no warm welcome. The room was very basic and the beds were terrible - so lumpy! I bet the owner/manager wouldn't sleep on them! It was at the cheaper end but compared to where we stayed in Albufeira for less there was no comparison!
The only good thing about this hotel is the location: really close to the train station. The price is way, way to high! And it includes only sleeping over, no breakfast. The room has the size of a matches box and we're not fat people and not even too picky. But definitely didn't like it here. The windows make you feel like you're in prison or samething(exetremly small). The bathroom is suited maybe for kids up to 5 years old; only they can fit in there. And the door of the room is so thin that it feels as you're sleeping on the hallway. Would definitely not recommend it except if maybe the alternative is to sleep in the street.
Value for money. Location is just a couple minutes away to the local downtown. It's not like a usual hotel, it is very much a guest house. Very noisy. If you get a room by the entrance, you'll be hearing door bell very loud and anoyng. There are different wired smells in this guest house,pretty old furniture,but rooms are really clean. No breakfast!!!! But I suppose its value for money.
Great location. Friendly staff. Very clean. Cable TV. Very nice terrace with the possibility of buying cheap drinks from reception. Quiet, although walls are very thin and you can listen to people coming in. Bed wasn't very comfortable.
We needed the hotel for one night, it was reasonably close to the airport and had good parking and suited our requirement very well. No
Greta breakfast Smelly room, not that clean, broken AC
The Friendlyness, cleanliness,good food and great funny Darius at the bar Lift out of order
They were happy for us to leave our luggage early before the room was ready. I paid for breakfast when I didn't have to, annoying.
Staff at Hotel Ibis Faro were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Also very close to airport, ideal for an early morning flight. Room was not very comfortable while bathroom was not entirely clean.
The staff were all pleasant and the room, though small, very clean.
Close to the airport the bed was not comfortable
I picked the hotel as its close to the airport for the early morning flight. They were well organised for this and I will use them again
Extremely convenient for a one night stay. Very close to the airport. Efficient staff.
nearby the airport Very bad communication with hotel staff. Room wasn't clean. Very expensive facilities and services with poor standard.
