Woman at front desk was short and abrupt. Asked for extra toilet paper, maid came to the room clearly annoyed, didn't even look at me and rudely handed it to me... if we had more then one roll to begin with, we wouldn't of needed to ask. Wish the service had been better. The location was perfect.
Our room had a great view of the marina. The room was compact in size but was very nice. They beds were very comfortable. Good choice for breakfast in a lovely dining room with great views. Great location - quiet but near everything! Nice staff too. We would stay there again 😀
Stayed here with my girlfriend at the start of the month, the hotel was very disappointing from start to finish. The first room they gave us was a muggy run down, humid little box that looked nothing like the pictures on booking.com , shabby carpets and chipped furniture, we asked for another room which was slightly better until I took a shower and the shower didn't work , I had to take a shower in the 'gym' p.s the health club is rubbish , tiny 3 person steamroom and Tiny tiny sauna . Also you have to run about 2 baths of water to make the water hot for shower on the room, not worth the money , stay elsewhere
Arrived in faro by airport shuttle. Hotel was easy to find and in a great location overlooking marina. Check in was simple quick and friendly. Room had a sea view and was to a high standard. Breakfast was fine. Only negative was that the room was not cleaned. We left early morning and returned at approx 5 to an unmade room.
15 mins and 15 Euro by taxi from the Airport. Lovely hotel next to marina. (Get room with a view over the marina. Worth the little extra. Very clean, bright and shiny inside and out. Great breakfast in restaurant on floor 5. Two tips: If you want English t.v. (for some reason?!) you won't get it. Very close to Airport and I guess what is RADAR interference. Also, like many continental hotels, no tea or coffee making facilities - take a travel kettle (and adaptor). Hotel will order you a taxi for trip back to airport, and they tell you it will be 15Eu, so don't worry about running out of cash! Great place to stay. Will go again.
We have stayed at this hotel before and our second stay was even better. Great location, lovely room, fantastic breakfast. When the weather is good you can relax around the roof top pool or sit on your balcony with a bottle of wine enjoying the view (make sure you book a marina view, it's worth it!). Restaurant on the top floor also offers great views and lovely food but there are many local restaurants to try close by. Rooms are a little small but have been given a modern makeover since our last stay and are very clean and comfortable. Free wifi too! The bar is lovely with reasonably priced drinks for a central hotel. If the weather isn't good the bus station and train station are just behind the hotel and the reception staff are very helpful with details of bus and train times and destinations.
The Hotel Eva is a very beautiful hotel situated right on the marina in Faro with magnificent views over the Ria Fermosa and beyond. The staff are great but what a shame the hotel is let down by poor breakfasts. While there is a wide variety of food on offer, cereals, fruit, cheeses, pastries and cold meats the cooked selection leaves a lot to be desired. Bacon not cooked sufficiently and cold, hard chorizo type sausages and watery cold scrambled eggs. Also on offer are mushrooms, baked beans, boiled and fried eggs. There is really no excuse for cold food, all the necessary equipment to keep food hot is in situe. The restaurant lunch and dinner menu would appear never to change and is badly prepared. The other downside is with the rooftop swimming pool which is now a health and safety issue. The steps down into the water are loose and dangerous and the pool itself is not the cleanest. The water should be changed every other day. And the children's pool is not much better. As stated at the outset the staff are faultless, nothing is a problem, from those at reception, waiters, those who help with your luggage, right through to the staff who look after the rooms. If one wants help of any kind, just ask. This Hotel has so much potential, pity it is let down by things so easily fixed. AP Hotel group have recently acquired the Eva and are refurbishing the bedrooms among other things. But the basics such as food and its presentation really must be a priority. We would like to return to Faro this Summer but will be keeping an eye on Tripadvisor for some indication that these issues are being addressed.
My wife and I stayed at Hotel Eva for 3 nights. First impressions, the hotel is modern, clean and well maintained. We paid a little extra for a marina view which was well worth it! The room was fantastic, my only complaint is that the bed was two singles pushed together not a double bed as we thought! The food in the hotel (we only had breakfast there) was everything you expect from hotel breakfasts! We were there in march and although it was warm enough to sunbathe (22 degrees) the pool was freezing, I tried to go for a swim but i literally thought my body was shutting down from the cold! All in all a great modern hotel in the perfect location for exploring the old town and the many places to eat and drink! Highly recommend!
Would recommend this hotel for a visit to Faro. Good breakfast and room cleaned daily. Easy check in and out with staff friendly and helpful at all times. In my opinion it's definitely worth paying a little extra to get a room overlooking the sea as the others overlook a busy road. Birthday free bottle of bubbly delivered to my room was a nice touch. No 16 bus runs from the airport to the bus station next to the hotel and costs 2.25 Euros. However if the bus times don't suit then a taxi including luggage in the boot comes in at 12 - 14 Euros.
The hotel is only 10mins away from the airport with the cost of 10 euros for a taxi its no hassle getting either way.Taxi ranks and bus stations are attached to the hotels end with the train station just down the road.The hotel Eva has been totally updated and WiFi is free.When booking in the porter took our cases to our room for us which helps.Two key cards for the room one must be put into small card reader so the power is switched on.Our room was on the fourth floor facing the marina with the sun shining from sunrise to 2pm the if you want more sun its up to the pool area on roof.The room has just not long been revamped all new.Mini bar with water in room.Tv was a let down with poor picture and small size.A breakfast was included in price which was very good.Bar prices was ok .Restaurant was very nice but nothing simple to eat,room service is where burgers and fries can be found which can be a good option is fussy eaters are in your party.There are plenty of food outlets around hotel.Old town entrance just in front of hotel, overall this hotel is one of the best you will get and i will be back.
