This was the third time we have stayed at the Hotel Faro in Faro – and it was for a full week. There is a great deal to commend this hotel, though it is not completely faultless.

Corporate hotel, centrally located overlooking the Marina. My room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, if a bit soulless and minimalist. Odd arrangement where to open the window you needed to climb up about one foot onto a platform. The window was set in from, thus preventing access to a Juliet balcony. As the weather was lovely, I would have appreciated... More

After a bad experience with the air con for the first couple of nights I got the hang of it - put it on minimum (around 7˚ C) and leave it on all night! And yes it is noisy because it is close to nightclubs and people don't tend to be quiet at 3am 4am 5am 6am but mainly at... More

I stayed at the hotel faro for 2 nights on the way to a yoga retreat. The hotel is "modern minimalist" to the extreme. Room was comfortable with a glimpse of harbor. The restaurant/bar on the roof is a lovely place for a glass of wine in the late afternoon. The old city is a minute beyond a park. The... More

we stayed here overnight on our way from Spain to catch a flight the following day. Room was spotlessly clean if a little spartan. The Ria Formosa restaurant was excellent, if rather more expensive than expected. Would I spend a whole holiday here? No, but it is fine for a couple of nights.

Came back one year later and booked a smoking room with private balcony overlooking a stork's nest! They will let guests use the hotel laptop for free. Ideal for those with memory sticks! The rooftop restaurant is the best in town. Great gaspacu and gambas.
