Pleasant short break

A perfect location for visiting Faro on a short break. The close proximity to the buses and trains was a bonus and we used both. We loved the old town and saw some beautiful churches and found the general atmosphere of Faro very relaxing. The only thing missing from the room is tea and coffee facilities. We would definately come back.

Across the marina is the Columba wine/ cocktail bar which is delightful. If you are sitting outside there are blankets for your legs and heaters to take away the chill at night. Not the cheapest of bars but certainly worth a visit.

Week away from it all!

Excellent helpful staff on arrival and throughout our visit. This hotel is perfect for day trips as it is central to all amenities. Railway station only five minutes away and hotel is very close to all shops, bars and restaurants. Although we ate out most nights as we wanted to try various menus, we did eat in the hotel which was excellent also. Wide choice available at breakfast. Rooftop pool was superb with it's own pool bar which offered food and snacks. Free wifi and room safe were also a nice touch.

Very nice

The family room was spacious and well equipped. The only issue was the air conditioning which was a bit aged and had trouble keeping the room very cool in the July weather. The gym and spa facilities were great. The first thing we did was go up to the pool on the roof, where they were just starting an aquarobics session which we joined in with, that was good. Normally the pool is a lot quieter (other than the occasional passing jet, which you'll experience from anywhere in Faro). If we come back to Faro we will probably stay here again. It's a nice location by the water but still close to all the restaurants and the old town.

Se7e Pedras is a really good value restaurant that we stumbled on. We had a couple of reasonably priced drinks there one night (€3 for a proper big glass of lager) and came back the following night for steaks, which were really nice. It's located on a very narrow rickety alley but this gives it a nice atmosphere when sitting outside. They're on Facebook.

Amazing place

Very positive. The price is still a bit expensive for a Four Stars hotel. The Wifi should be entirely free, as this was the only negative point I found at this hotel after beeing in NY, Prague and even at the Riverside Hotel by Portimao where the wifi is 100% free and with good coverage and download capacities.

Hotel Eva in late Sept.

A lovely location over looking the marina. I think the staff expect their visitors to engage in touring etc. and the service during the day was a little 'absent'. The pool area on the roof was comfortable, however the bar service was inconsistant and some staff were 'grumpy', Lovely piano in lobby was an ornament and the bar did not open during the day. This would have been fine if the weather allowed one to sunbath beside the pool #and be ignored by the pool bar staff.# However, it was not the place to meet other guests etc. A city hotel, generally, fine for a week-end break.

Some lovely local restaurants, very keenly priced. Check out the crowds at lunch time, good indicator of quality of service and food. If they don't smile at you, don't dine there.

Perfect location

The reception staff were friendly, helpful and spoke good English; excellent location near to station and minibuses around town . Breakfast had a good selection; Dinner was excellent but the menu was the same every day, so a week's stay was suffient; restaurant staff were excellent with good discreet service. Good rail service to Tavira, Vila Real de San Antonio, as well as to Lisbon.

Perfect Location, Perfect Service, Perfect Views

Took a short vacation to Faro Portugal for my husband's R&R vacation and we were very pleased with the hotel and mostly the service. The location was perfect, next to the Marina, our room had harbor views and a great balcony. The hotel is within walking distance of the city center, train station, bus station and all of it's sightseeing. Right outside the door there were a few restaurants and a restaurant at the roof top of the hotel. The pool was open but because we went in January it was too cold to go in the water. We traveled with our 4 year old son and the hotel was very friendly to him as well. The receptionist at the front desk assisted in booking us a day trip to Seville and told us how to use the train and bus. They also had a Taxi waiting for us at 4 am since we had an early flight. We took the bus to Olhao and the train to Lagos. The bus station is less than a block away from the hotel and the train is within a 3-5 minute walk. The only thing that I didn't like about the hotel was that the bed was way too firm. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding and so was the dinner at the restaurant. I highly recommend this hotel. ***There isn't too much to do in Faro so if you are going on vacation here I recommend that you consider taking the train to the near by places that offer more like Lagos or Albufeira.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Book the excursion trips that are available at a very reasonable price through the hotel receptionist. They range from 30 Euros and up. Also try the boat rides outside the hotel. There is a small office within 50-100 ft from the front door that offers boat rides and rentals. I paid 10 euros for a tour of the Ria Formosa.

Pleasant Enough

A pleasant hotel, though I felt the staff at the front desk were a bit on the brusk side but, with things as they are in Portugal, perhaps they don't have much to be happy about. Meanwhile, the buffet breakfast was, for me, a little below the standard that one would expect from such a hotel. The hot selection was a bit limited with eggs only coming in the scrambled form, the bacon was a bit tasteless and the sausages were of those those awful mini-frankfurter type used in many southern European hotels. I didn't try the cold selection, but that all looked pretty standard as were the pastries. My main criticism of many hotels these days, of which the Eva is one, is their charging extortionate sums for an internet connection - I think they wanted Euro 2 for 30 minutes, which is unacceptably ludicrous. So I just drafted out my emails, went to local hot spot and sent them for free. I really don't understand why so many hotels who need business travellers, especially out of season, feel so at liberty to then rip them off for an internet connection which actually costs them peanuts. Annoying, and something which clouds one's perception of their overall service.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a great restaurant, the Adega Nova on Rua Francisco Barreto, only some 200m from the Hotel Eva. It appears to be popular with the locals, so it must be good, and the prices are very reasonable. We paid Euro 23/head in total for a main meal (which is big), dessert, and bottles of house red and white wine (both very drinkable) plus a couple of beers. The ambience is good, and the service by a cheery and chatty waiter waiter excellent. Overall, a good place to eat.

A nice oasis

The hotel is generally very good. However, it is important to stress your basic needs, such as: patio. All rooms do not offer a patio, but will give one a much larger room instead. It really depends on your requirements. Front desk was very patient, and helpful, even though we did seem to have a language barrier at first. It all worked out well. I would stay here again, and recommend for others to do so too. The pool is worth at least one nights stay!

Pizza! Cant recall the name, but it is only a few minutes walk down the food alley. Wonderful. We ate there two night. Although, the staff pushes you to the roof to eat. We were a group of 7, and the second night we insisted on eating on ground level. Management was grumpy, but our table server was wonderful. Forget the fish, eat pizza in Portugal.
