We arrived at Residencial Dandy for a 3 night stay and were presently surprised. Although our room's air conditioning was not working and there were not two dining rooms as stated outside we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Residencial Dandy is very quirky and decorated beautifully, the pictures really do not do it justice. The people working there were extremely helpful... More

We arrived for a short 2 night break at 11pm. It seemed we had just woke the concierge although he was pleasant enough showing us to a massive room (2 double a bunk beds) for the two of us. The 2nd night we were moved to another room with its own terrace. The hotel is quirky with narrow corridors lots... More

I booked a two-night room there last month. It just appeared to be the cheapest room I could ever find on booking.com for this period. Well, it looks a bit odd and it's next to the Church, but who cares? It is the cheapest room of the town. You have a bed and a bathroom for the price, and that's... More

What a great find! For less than £10pppn, we got ourselves a double room with an ensuite. It's certainly a little tired looking, and might appreciate a bit of tarting up, but it was spotlessly clean and the shower had decent water pressure and was hot hot hot! Except for on the day we left there was no water running... More

I stayed at Residencial Dandy in the end of 2012. It was a very short weekend trip so I was not looking for fancy hotel, which could have been easily found in the region. I made an online reservation for 2 nights but due to transportation problem I phoned the receptionist (a lady) and she told me it was OK... More

. Stayed here for a weekend in August. Extremely quirky place. Landlord reminded me of Rigsby, a skinflint character from a 70s TV comedy. He pointed to his heart and said bad when telling me he couldn’t help me with my bag. However he recovered quickly when a woman needed help. The Furniture was as old as the Portuguese empire....

Everyone says this guest-house has a bit of quirk to it, and it's true. But we liked it! It is clean and functional and central and inexpensive. And we loved Faro... more than we expected, honestly. Good value, if you are easy.

Beautiful sprawling pensao crammed with oddball decorations. Very high ceilings and quite comfy beds. Hasn't had a refit in, oooh, 20-odd years, but it's clean and more or less everything works. No travel cot for baby but otherwise no complaints. Not exactly US-style "have-a-nice-day" service with a style, but baaaaaa

Our room was traditional and fairly basic but comfortable and immaculately clean. We did not see the owner or staff often and we were left to come and go as we pleased. There was plenty of hot water and our en suite had a bath and shower. Our room was very quiet and we were never disturbed. The central location... More
