Great view , good location in Faro, very nice spa .
The gym WiFi access not available
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
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.
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 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.....
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.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the short distance to local bars,restaurants and shops was a bonus.
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.
Staff were very attentive and friendly. Hotel traditional portugese in style and spotless.
Friendliness of staff Seemed exceedingly quiet - lacked some atmosphere
The standard of the hotel is excellent. The staff were all both professional & friendly.
Location and quality of the hotel. It is a relaxing envirnoment Not really. We were allocated the wrong room on arrival but that was quickly changed.
Impressive reception area, helpful staff, cleanliness Expensive, limited facilities for a 5 star hotel
The staff were incredibly helpful and did everything they could to ensure we had a fantastic trip. The quality of the hotel, staff, facilities, food were all amazing. Only a short walk to a beautiful sandy beach. It was by far the best hotel I've stayed in! Nothing - it was perfect!
There is nothing to do but relax. No shopping, no nights out, the hotel is in a secluded part of town. The bed was made of two single beds. This was very uncomfortable for my partner and I.
The pool was excellent They arranged a taxi service that was substantially more expensive than local firms. Also local firms charge from receipt of call not collection, can't be avoided but worth knowing and still cheaper than the hotel recommendation.
The staff were excellent throughout I believe that a Chef / Cook in attendence in breakfast room would make a huge difference be it for fresh cooking of eggs / pancakes and suchlike
Staff were attentive, friendly and provided a high level of service. Excellent facilities and good value for the money. The only complaint I have is the poor quality of the beds and pillows. An upgrade is required in these areas. That is why I rated comfort as satisfactory. As well, the fitness facility could use additional equipment.
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.
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
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
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!;
Good Location Information pack in room not good
No bedside table No facecloth No tissues Very minimalist decor
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
comfortable and relaxed.Friendly staff who are helpful. Breakfast prepared too far in advance.could be varied.Car park too expensive and poor design
The stff were delightful and the hotel well appointed and peaceful
Everything. Staff were so courteous. Service excellent all the small touches added just made holiday. Just could have a little more choice for eveing meals. Nothing wrong with quality which was excellent. Which would have kept us in hotel on evenighs
Fantastic location and view. The hotel is difficult to find by car.
quality of food, cleanliness, friendly and helpful staff small bath, wine list not very descriptive (who knows anything about portuguese wines!).
We have stayed over many years,one of our favourites in Europe NA
staff very helpful and prepared to go the extra mile
good room,nice view, generally pleasant staff, excellent included breakfast main restaurant closed on the 3 days of our stay. stroppy attitude to relatives using pool for 3 hours.
The location and the extremely friendly staff (it was very quite in the hotel so that might have positively influenced the friendliness of the staff and our very pleasant, relaxed experience). However, we have been there multiple times before and we always had a good experience we have no complains whatsover
It is not a Hotel. They have service apartments of various sizes. Good for longer stay. Great for golfers or Tennis enthusiasts. Because of the size there is a mini bus service for the resorts, very efficiently run. The reception area is too far away from the actual drive way. Long procedure checking in. No seating while waiting for bus to collect.
nice hotel similar to villar do golf parking down by sea
We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment and could not have gotten better accomodation. Everything was luxury and the staff and security were very helpful. The kids loved the beach, the pool, the tennis and the putt putt golf. Would recommend to someone wanting to get away and relax.
Excellent resort, very safe and something for all ages. Great beach and accommodation options. Would highly recommend.
total privacy ... big appartments, lots of space1
Vale do Lobo resort is luscious and green and extremely well kept, the staff were efficient, helpful and polite. A golfers paradise or simply a great place to relax. Hire a car if you want to explore surrounding areas. Many of the restaurants on the Vale Do Lobo resort are overpriced and the food disappointing. Similarly, the onsite supermarket is incredibly overpriced (€7 for a can of deodorant!) so beware.
Excellent apartment with a pool. Golf courses fantasic but expensive. The apartment was advertised as being 500 metres from the sea with sea views. This is not the case. you had to drive 15 minutes to get to the sea.
We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom villa and it was absolutely luxurious
Our apartment was covered with ants the kitchen and living area
Extensive resort with all facilities that one needs. Range of accomodation that suits families as well as couples. Sport & service facilities are excellent. There are a wide range of restaurants that suit most travellers with the food being good but not excellent. The main restaurant and bar/beach areas tend to have music/life music which is fine occassionally however can be a little much at times so we found a few restaurants that were not in the main areas of the resort and hence quieter or there is of course always the opportunity to have dinner outside the resort.
people very friendly felt it was a little tired
This is a 3 star hotel - certainly not a 5 star. Rooms are tired and require refurbishment. They don't even have proper showers. The pool area is crowded and too small. Totally overpriced. Tired rooms. Simply not 5 star by any stretch of the imagination.
Proximity to Faro, and the location near the beach and Val do Lobo restuarants. the hotel is generally tired and in need of an up-date, however it is still good, but perhaps not worthy of 5 stars.The breakfast is anly average and would benefit from real fresh jusices, not canned and also more variety, especially grapeftruit juice. Also, the fresh fruit was limited ansd several options were canned fruits.
We unfortunately got some bad news very early into our stay at the hotel and the staff were magnificent in assisting us to re-arrange flights home. Staff were brilliant
The Hotel was in an excellent location within minutes of the beach and restuarants of Vale Do Lobo, the rooms were spacious and staff were extremley helpful when required. Bedrooms are a little tired and ready for a refurb but not to the extent of being shabby
the peacefullness pool side service was terrible and tv coverage for 5star was poor
Easy for golf, lovely pool and very helpful staff Nothing - every thing was good.
good food and athmosphere
Hotel staff, relax atmosphere, luxury No
Location of hotel close to restaurants and beach Dated room. Uncomfortable beds.
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.
Accessibility A bit old fashioned
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
Great facilities at a great rate and staff very accomodating. N/A
Nice spacious suite, well equipped, great resort facilities. We felt we were more nuisances than guests at Bobby's restaurant.
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
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.
Location, cleanliness, staff Not applicable
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
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.
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.
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.
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
Proximity of excellentn restaurants and services Parking problem (no street parking aside from 2 spots)
I have stayed at the Formosa Park Hotel 4 times and have had a great experience every time. The staff are great, the 2-bed appartments are fabulous. The proximity to the beach and the nature reserve are an added bonus. The pool is lovely - one of the best hotel pools of my experience.I have no fault to find with any aspect of this hotel. The fact that we go back year after yera speaks for itself.
Swimming pool and how clean it was, lovely gardens, peace and quiet, nice not being surrounded by high rise apartments or other hotels Not a complaint but it would be nice if there were a few tavernas near by for a drink by the beach
To be a quiet place Yes ,I didn't like, at the bathroom, the fact that the shower is attached to the wall by a stiff device.It should be flexible in order to be orientated towards your body.If not you have to stand almost against the wall
size of modern bathroom and cleanliness of room. very difficult to find even with GPS. felt that the dining facility was expensive. No others nearby.
The pool was great for children. Good Towel service. Got upgraded to pool view.
very family friendly, very relaxed, professional staff, great breakfast
Uniformly excellent. The staff are always friendly, helpful and pleasant
Location is amazing - beach & golf.. Pool v. good. Didn't receive sleeping arrangements we had booked.
Big apartments. Hotel location - quiet and near the beach. Away from crouds Room decoration could be improved.
The hotel was immaculate, rooms very comfortable and staff both efficient and friendly. A very enjoyable experience.
great place...wright next to the beach I had a problem with the shower,but the hotel took care of it pretty soon. couldnt find any heating sistem. And I had a room faced to the back at the hotel,not the beach.
The hotel has lovely sea views from the restaurant, is only a few yards from sea, evening entertainment is brilliant, and only a 3 minute walk from bus station and taxis, bus service very resonable and good. No
hotel was fantastic. the location was perfect close to beach, very short distance from airport, beautiful view from room.(booked city view but changed to sea view) will definitely be back again
friendlyness of staff no fridge in room
the breakfast was very good lift,s too small
sea view locality to facilities in the area breakfast very limited fresh fuit would of been good
good food relaxing and good beach for walking no
The hotel was great for the price. I had a beach front room, and I was very pleased. It was close to shopping and a few beach bars
beach and promenade room and balcony too small
in the centre for golf Very much old people
room was very dirty; tv and shower not working; reception staff very unfriendly; breakfast room just simply a joke
The hotel is newly refurbished after a sprll of closure. This Hotel has just been re-rated as a 4 star establishment. However many of the facilities you would expect of the higher rating are not yet present. As a result of this regrading the Hotel intends to increase its prices fourfold. On that basis, a stay there would not be good value.
Peace and quiet. Clean. Friendly.
Air conditioned in my room 603 not functioned
The staff were very helpful,good location to the beach and prom and nearby cafe`s. The only bad thing was the breakfast! The only edible thing was the melon!
The new parts off the hotel were clean and nice, pool area also ok. friendly staf and a reasonable breakfast. Great location off the hotel and very easy to spot with its red coloured facad. The annex buliding is not rennovated and therefore not as nice, clean but not worth the money. These rooms are also missing a fridge. Secondly internet is only available at the reception, and they charge guests 2 €/ 30 min!
Close to the beach and town center. This is more like 2 stars hotel, not 4. Extremely small rooms, very bad bathroom. Shower was leaking all the time. Air conditioning was working however I put it on 17C (the lowest possible) and it was just blowing a bit of some air. It was very very hot in the room. No place to put your wet towels or swim suit. Awful breakfast (poor choice, disgusting coffee, bread tested like old, juice taste like flavored water - in the country full of fruits it is a joke!) Hotel is full for older people and families. The whole town is like that - if you are a young couple it is better to go to the next village (vilamura).
Excellent location (bus station in 100 m (buses to Faro, Albufeira), beach 300 m, 2 car rental companies within 200 m), clean rooms, friendly staff, Ok breakfast, hotel has pool.
Friendly and helpful staff, good location near to beach and restaurants/bars, on pleasant tree-lined road with easy access to shops The gym was very basic, the breakfast could have been better
Nice apartment. The reception closed before we arrived (17:00) and there was left no note on the door on on how to get the key. It took half an hour to puzzle out that se had to find a restaurant who then in turn called security. Calling the hotel didn't help as no one picked up the phone.
The apartment with private pool is fantastic. Nice garden with pool view where we took our breakfast. Comfortable rooms. Nice design and areas.
I would recomend encosta do lago resort club, I can not speak highly enough of it, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, do not hesitate to stay here
We only went for a short break and really felt relaxed and pampered when we left.
proximity to Faro Airport and ease of check in Web site should provide full directions from the airport
The welcome that we had when we booked in. The staff could not do enough for you or give you a cleaner, nicer room.
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.
+ 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.
Great location for early Faro departure. Hotel, modern and spotless, staff were extremely helpful, evening meal excellent value, breakfast great variety. Nothing at all.
Very convenient for Faro Airport
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.
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.
Thje size of the rooms and cleanliness Perhaps a softer bed.
Clean, large rooms. Noise from the street
