nothing fancy but clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We had a so called budget room which was not in the main building but on the other side of the complex. The budget rooms don't have aircon just a portable fan. The check in time we thought was rather late 3.00pm, we arrived at 2.00... More

We spent 6 nights in Rialgarve with my girlfriend in July 2014. Arriving late in the evening and leaving in the middle of the night the location close to airport was handy. On the other hand, the location was quite bad for anything else. Beach is very far away, definitely don´t try to walk there, it´ll take you an hour... More

This is a real little gem in the Algarve. A stone's throw from Faro Airport so great location when arriving late evening or early morning departures. It is a no frills place, spotlessly clean, with most helpful pleasant staff. We arrived rather late in the evening with torrential rains. We were able to have a very nice meal in the... More

Kept awake by a very noisy dog,banging doors and although we had requested alarm call and taxi,..did not get either, and worst of all no hot water at 5.am. Staff in the restaurant was very friendly and room was clean ,but goodness the bed was uncomfortable.

We are totally impressed by the Rialgarve and would come back anytime. We rented a room without a balcony since it was cheaper and received a room with a balcony as big as a terrace! Amazing view on the pool and Faro, especially at night. 2 outdoor pools which are very clean. We have been here in May and it... More

Had a lovely stay at the Rialgarve. Excellent value for money. Staff were very nice and helpful. The pool was the best thing about the place, loved it. The restaurant was spacious and the beer was very inexpensive. Their budget rooms are basic but comfortable and are the best value for money I've yet found in a hotel. The only... More

The staff were amazing. Very nice and resourceful. I cannot empathize this enough. The facilities were in good state and very clean, although there was a lot of dust under the sink in my room. The restaurant opens very early and closes very late. Breakfast was *very* good, but then I had prawn salad and it wasn't great -- the... More

My first thought on arriving with two large and heavy suitcases was What have I done! Reception was at the top of two flights of stairs that seemed to present a problem without suitcases. I left the suitcases behind and hauled my way up the steps, only to find the reception closed and a notice saying to contact the restaurant.... More

It is a very clean, friendly but also very basic sport hotel located in a town next to Faro. Rooms were clean, but with basic equipment. It is a sport hotel with many basketball, and tenis courts and one outdoor pool. Rooms sold by "discounts on the internet" do not have an AC. If this hotel would charge 20 eur... More
