On arrival, in the evening, we were allocated a fairly dowdy looking room. My wife noticed that there we no tea/coffee making facilities that she'd been assured by email that were present in all superior rooms. We advised reception via the room phone and were advised that the room we'd been given was not superior and she'd given us the... More

We stayed here the first week in April 2015. A fantastic location on the Marina with resident White Storks nesting on the lamp post outside. Very helpful and friendly staff and a spacious, clean and well air conditioned room. The best part though was the rooftop restaurant, bar and terrace. We booked half board to get the better room and... More

The hotel is in an ideal location, and the Old Town and newer areas of Faro are easily accessible. It’s also very close to the nearby train and bus station, and is just a short taxi from Faro airport. The restaurant was lovely for breakfast, and has beautiful views overlooking the marina. There was plenty of choice available, with cereals,... More

Our rooms were quiet, cleaned daily and had a change of linen & fresh towels. We really enjoyed our all inclusive breakfast, especially the smoked salmon.
