“4th stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

This is the 4th and last time we will stay here . It used to be immaculate. Not any more. First we walked into our room and stood on someone's finger nail one out of three lamps didn't work I went to plug in my phone and the dust on the floor and skirting boards was bad. No kettle to make a drink the fridge had 6 bottles of water and no prices. The bed was comfortable and clean. Then came breakfast which I was really looking forward to as it used to be really nice. Not not now. The pineapple juice was watered down a lot the toaster was very slow and only did one side thr rolls were hard the croissants cold there was no bowls of fruit or muffins scrambled eggs were burnt well I think that's what it was not got to the pool yet. It is such a shame when you see places go down hill.

Stayed for one night to spend time in Faro after having 10 days in Lagos, lovely hotel, clean, the staff were very friendly, rooms were basic but adequate, not much choice at breakfast but good enough to start the day, pool area was quiet and a welcome break from the heat, outside of Faro town, but only about 8 Euro's in Taxi each way or there is a bus you can catch. Free shuttle to airport all day and to the beach and town in mornings and return early evening. Don't think I would spend two weeks here, but for a short break I would highly recommend it.

Many Thanks to all the staff here on our unexpected visit due to waiting for a flight after a delay due to my partners broken ankle missing our original flight.The raising platform from the lobby was vital but the wonderful help from everybody really made all the difference.The hotel is well run clean and being modernised in many areas.Great location for Faro and free shuttle service to the beach or airport.

This is or 3rd visit passing through Faro and standard is always very good
The Hotel is small enough to care and big enough not to be in your face
Nice pool in the garden with service too. Breakfast is good & lots of it ....
10mins to the Airport, great for 6am early morning flights. Bus just down the road brings you into Faro town, Taxi home is cheap if you are trying out the local restaraunts, and they are worth the effort.

Room Tip: Handy access to Faro town (bus) Taxi is cheap and Airport

We stayed for one night in this hotel and really enjoyed it. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It is located very close to the airport but very little aircraft noise. A bonus is the lovely pool and gardens with sun loungers. Water was lovely and not cold. They also operate a shuttle bus to the airport. Hotel is very clean and good value for money. The continental breakfast was very good with wide variety and tasty. Bed was very comfortable and room was very clean with AC. Bar food menu had good variety and value for money. A few minutes by taxi to the center of Faro.The hotel has lifts.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies with chairs , nice in warm weather.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Was the hotel of choice for me on my week-long trip to the Algarve as it was very close to the airport and also into the centre of Faro - as a newly-qualified UK driver, confidence was a major issue with regards to renting a motor when everything is on the opposite side!

The staff were very friendly and chatty, and were always eager to help.

The hotel was very clean during my stay, and the bed was also pleasant and comfortable. Breakfast was included in my price plan as it was the cheapest option on the website where I booked my stay; it wasn't extensive on the occasion I went down for my morning brew (not a big breakfast fan, myself), but seemed to be very good value. The area around the pool was also very clean, as was the pool itself.

The only pointers I would have to say is that there were a couple of issues regarding the drinks at the bar... don't be expecting your cocktail to be perfect, as it most likely won't be. Unfortunately, it hugely depended on the member of staff behind the bar, but this isn't exactly a major issue! I also noticed that the hotel claims to have a 'fitness centre', which it doesn't. There is a massage room, and a disappointment I did encounter was that the Jacuzzi was out of use outside.

I would definitely recommend Hotel Monaco to all Algarve travellers!
