Recent guest reviews

Spent two nights in June at this hotel We arrived early and our room wasn’t ready but the receptionist kept our luggage whilst we took a book from the hotel library and chilled by the pool with a drink The food was good but a limited choice we had cod and cream which was delicious Next day we took the complementary shuttle bus down to downtown Faro took a tuc tuc sightseeing tour then looked around the shops and market the bus collected us at 5pm Our room was good sized and breakfast good too on our departure day we left at 5 and a water juice apple and sandwich were waiting for us at check out I couldn’t fault the hotel at all The staff were brilliant especially Vitor Robario who was very helpful with everything thoroughly enjoyed our stay would definitely visit again

This was fantastic for us - provided you accept it for what it is when you are booking - it’s a really clean - very organised 3 Star hotel that is very very convenient to the airport and provides shuttle into faro also. Was delighted with our room - had cot all ready for our exhausted toddler when we arrived - beds very comfortable - I think check out was 12 which was handy too - late enough - breakfast was in my opinion really nice - fresh breads and cakes - cereal and yougurts - hot food (Portuguese so scrambled egg and hot dogs but stay at home if you want a fry in fairness) - my husband was delighted with the coffee machine and I liked the orange drink very well - it wasn’t actually pretending to be juice - is more like squash - thought it was very tasty - anyway - clean comfortable helpful well organised and convenient - just what we needed

Small hotel room. Kind of dated. But it was just a place to sleep so it was alright. The saddest part was the morning breakfast. Bread buns were great. The coffee machine is awful, tasted like very cheap coffee. Also, the orange juice. I could not understand why a place that is surrounded by orange trees with people selling cheap oranges off the side of the roads and they served the cheapest, fakest orange juice I have ever tasted. Not impressed.

Our room was quite comfortable on the first floor. The breakfast was included with a good many options. The parking was free and had ample parking spots at the time of our stay. The pool area is nice, quiet but cool during the time of our stay. We did enjoy a massage and the prices are very reasonable and so worth it. The front desk staff was helpful in giving us directions to the nearest beach.

Ok,. we did not book this hotel its close to the airport though in a very nice suburb and EZJ booked us and a number of others into the hotel at short notice. There was a bit of stress but the staff dealt with it all really well. I misunderstood them when they said Baby Cots are in the hallway and you help yourself, I was pleased I located one. No issues, We had 2 rooms a family room ( 3 large single beds) one floor one and a double on floor 4, the views and sunrise from the toproom were nice and some of the rooms have balconies. which would have been even better. Ok big plus - the staff they make you feel at ease and at home are superfriendly - a welcome break from the usual corporate airport hotels. If you have time the suburb around the hotel is nice and safe the 16 bus takes you to Faro or Faro Beach via the airport. You can also walk to local supermakets or hike/ taxi to the forum Algarve shopping centre. Location aint bad your not on a highway but pretty close to it. Rooms are quiet- there is some renovation work taking place but its considered. Breakfast is decent - continental with some cooked eggs/hot dog sausages (if that's your bag!). Juice is cordial - you get the drift. The dinner or dish of the day is decent enough and there is a wide choice of usual bar food to tuck into. All freshly prepared and made to order. Free Gym and massage ( add charge) on site/ Swimming Pool outdoor with old fashioned change rooms outside. Most people will use the hotel for a night maybe 2 and for this I highly recommend as the staff are helpful and it beats being part of the FARO airport terminal. Have a go try something different - its not the Hilton but is quite charming and if you adjust your expectations you willl enjoy a nice. quiet and relaxed day or two hear. we stayed 4 nights. Well done Staff of Monaco Hotel!!

Not posh, not fancy, not close to anything in particular (other than the airport), but a welcome sight when our flight was cancelled due to snow at Bristol. Rooms dated but clean, extractor fan not working but plenty of hot water and clean towels, breakfast consisted of cereal, fruits, eggs, Frankfurter type sausages, pastries and dodgy coffee. Check out is midday and they will store your bags in Reception, check in from 14.00. Gym onsite and pool. Big shout out to the staff who are friendly and helpful.

Landed in Faro, late evening; needed an hotel close to the airport that served some food. Had a room bar but would have preferred tea/ coffee making facilities. Pizza in bar was fine, as was breakfast. Clean and as the title says, it did the job!

Most helpful staff great location great price deal. So handy for the airport and bus stop almost at the door to town. Ideal for short break or stop over en route to holidays further afield. 4th visit ans we'll be back

After being unable to return home on our planned flight we booked this hotel for 1 night to get our heads down and catch up on sleep. The next day we had to try arrange flight home and insurance etc and the staff helped us with phone calls and emails. Also had use of computer. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Huge thank you to all the staff

We used the hotel as it was close to the airport. They advertise a free shuttle. We came to find, after taking the taxi from the airport, that the free shuttle only runs during daytime hours and pretty much just for the business part of the day. Upon arrival at the hotel that evening we requested a shuttle back to the airport the next morning. First shuttle was at 9:30 am! We accepted the time and prepared to leave then. When we showed up for the shuttle in the morning we were told we were not on the list and the shuttle was full. We took a taxi to the airport. I won't be back. We will visit Algavre again, but the next time in Faro, we will stay somewhere else. Not as advertised. Reception needs improvement. Rooms are fine.
