This hotel is situated in a fantastic location overlooking the marina. It has a terrace on the roof where you can enjoy drinks and meals. In December we were able to sit on the terrace in the afternoon and enjoy a beer and watch the world of Faro go by! We also enjoyed a great sunset. The hotel is chic... More

We stayed a few nights in the Hotel Faro and had a lovely time. Its location cannot be beaten in this town. We had a view from our window over the marina. There was a concert held in front of the hotel which was great fun. The room was a good size, the breakfasts were nice, and the staff were... More

My friend and I have just returned from 4 nights at the Hotel Faro and I felt I should add our comments to those already posted. Our first impressions were very good, the hotel was stylish and appropriately chic and Faro is a good place to visit although 4 days is about enough time to really get to see the... More

The Hotel is in a very central location on the main square and just round the corner from Faro's shops, restaurants, bars etc. The old town is also a couple of minutes walk away. The first impression of the hotel was a bit odd as it felt like we were walking into an office block and did not feel like... More

Nice place to stay and a good location, however, it is very much a 'corporate' place to stay and is somewhat lacking in atmosphere. In addition, how it rates a 4* rating is beyond us. There is no pool, gym, etc., the facilities are poor. If you want to see genuine Faro, forget this place as it is not worth... More

We stayed for two nights in June in a 'superior' room. The room was quite small - just about accommodating a double bed - but lacked any tea making facilities. The hotel information pack was lacking any real substance, just a list of phone numbers and no dialogue. We had a good view overlooking the marina and there were plenty... More

Stayed here in Nov for 6 nights, way too long in Faro. Staff on desk realtively helpful, restaurant staff rude. We got up one morning at 10.10, breakfast ended at 10.30, went to breakfast room, it was dirty, no clean cutlery, staff walked past us. We ate stale bread, and they did not come over to offer us tea/coffee. Other... More

The Hotel Faro is an excellent modern hotel in the centre of the capital of the Algarve. It is approx a €9.00 taxi ride from the airport. The hotel is very clean and the staff are efficient and friendly. If you are exploring the wonderful city of Faro it is ideally located in the centre of town. The restaurant offers... More
