We drove into Faro during the motorbike convention and were able to find parking close to the hotel, weekends are free but check with the hotel staff. The staff were very helpful showing us places of interest and sorting out our a/c very quickly. The room was a good size, had wi-fi and a balcony overlooking the road. Breakfast was... More

Had a one-night stay. Clean, comfortable, and large balcony. Wifi on the 5th floor was weak, but the breakfast was delicious, easily the highlight of the hotel. It is located centrally and directions from Google maps were direct and correct.

We stayed 2 nights with our small children. Location is perfect as the tourist spots are right next to the hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The service was kind and helpful. I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

I spent one night at the hotel and I liked the room, though it was tiny. Breakfast was nice and the location is great. Very close to the sites and the shopping area. The service at the hotel was very nice, kind and helpful.

We come in hotel for only one night between flights. it was clean and nice room for small rate. Breakfast was excellent, better than in some brand hotel. Hotel is in city centre, great location, reception woman was kind and helpful. The choice of accommodation in Faro is not so good, so this hotel was great deal for money.

The staff was helpful with all needed information about the city and transport. The location is very close to the old town. Restaurants and shops are just around the corner. The... More

I booked the hotel based on the good reviews. I do think the hotel was good value as I got quite a good deal, however I was disappointed with the wifi signal in my room. The T.V only had one station in English and that is the news. It was impossible to watch videos on my ipad because the wifi... More

I just arrived at home from a two night stay at Hotel Santa Maria and only have wonderful things to stay. The rooms were clean and worked perfect for our girls weekend. The hotel staff were super friendly and provided excellent customer service. They arranged a boat tour of the Algarve along with transportation to and from the boat. As... More
