Faro holiday

The Faro Hotel is very central for the marina, old town, shops, bus & train station. The staff were very helpful at all times. Breakfast was nicely presented with a varied a selection. of cereals, fresh fruit, cheese, ham, fresh salmon and a cooked menu. The Dining Room is on the top floor with a glorious view of the marina and vast harbour.

Numerous restaurants within short walk offering set meals with wine for 8-10 euros. Fresh fish meals are plentiful. We didn't fancy octopus!

lady weekend away

Hotel was above expectation. Modern, clean and comfortable. We shared a room for three adults and there was more than enough room. The buffet breakfast of hot and cold food was provided on the veranda restaurant overlooking the marina. My only complaint is that the hot breakfast became cold very quickly on the unheated buffet area. The hotel is in a very good position for exploring the city and with lovely views of the marina. The staff were really helpful and friendly and we would happily return to the hotel again. ( It would have been even better with an indoor pool).

Nice place to stay

Hotel is a short taxi ride from airport and is a few steps to shops, restaurants and bars as you are in the centre of things in Faro. Found the room to be clean, quiet with a comfortable bed also a decent sized fridge which is not full of mini bar stuff so you can actually use it. Breakfast was great with lots of choice in a fabulous location on the roof of hotel overlooking the harbour, breakfast was served between 7:30 to 10:30 which was great as no need to rush. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the cleaners also friendly and kept the room spotless, they even washed the floors each day and made sure toiletries, towels and bedding were replaced as required. Of course as the airport so near you get flights going over most of the day but this was not a problem for us as it did not detract from having a good time, we would put bets on what airline would fly over next. All in all Faro has some great places to eat, drink and chill or shop depending on your taste.

Lovely break

very central and not too 'touristy'. the staff here are the best asset-always helpful and patient. Found the location really great for exploring the small side streets and taxis to the larger towns always available. We had a lovely breakfast on the fourth floor each morning. We stayed for five nights and it was just the right amount of time. Area in general very safe and clean, good for families. No beach nearby, but that was okay. Can be accessed easily by catamaran which adds to the adventure especially for the kids!

elderly ladies in february.

took care of elderly lady guests. general view of guests was that the hotel evening dining was too expensive and not that good, so most people ate out. there are lots of reasonable restaurants nearby. had requested that the beds be separated (two sisters) but the message had not filtered to room staff, so had to move beds each day. not a big problem but would have been nice. pls note traveler type does not really reflect two elderly sisters.
