“Location, location, location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Spent a week in June at the Hotel Eva which was absolutely fantastic. Location was superb on a prime site in front of the marina and so close to the bus and train stations which was handy for us as we travelled by train to Lisbon afterwards. Hotel very clean. Staff very friendly, polite and helpful. Food very good - view over marina from restaurant was great. We purposely stayed in a superior room at the back of the hotel which had more space but cost the same as the marina views with balcony which suited our needs better. A great location for some R&R with some great restaurants to sample in the town.

Room Tip: Ask to see which rooms best suits your needs. The marina views were nice but the size was compromis...

We stayed here as a quick stop over before or drive down the coast to the western most point. Sadly our plane was delayed due to air traffic controllers strike so we had very little time to enjoy the hotel and lovely balcony overlooking the marina. However for the short time we were there the staff were terrific and very helpful regarding parking at 1 am! the breakfast was delicious with a great view sitting outside on the roof balcony. It is a basic business hotel in my view but for us did what it said on the tin for a fair price,

So glad we chose this hotel.Beautiful white minimalistic lobby.Fabulous room - superior (not facing the marina) but much larger than the ones that do.It had a sitting room and well appointed bathroom & even a balcony.It did face the town but with double glazing,so not noisy at all.Breakfast good and tables inside or out, overlooking the marina.All staff friendly and helpful.Lovely roof top pool.A great choice and we would return.

After spending one night in Hotel Eva my wife and I were left to wonder how they have a 4* rating. The rooms were a throwback to the 90s in terms of decor and somewhat smelled of... well ... old. There were zero sockets beside the bed. Not one. So if you are in anyway modern and possess a cell phone then no bed time reading for you as it will be plugged in and resting on the floor on the other side of the room. Oh and the wifi is an inconvenience.

The redeeming features are the location, view and rooftop pool. Which are all perfect and a delight. That I suppose is how they can afford to charge THOSE prices. Even still, as nice as these things are, they don't warrant a 4 star hotel.

Hotel Eva was a wonderful surprise!
Clean, nice and large family room with a very nice bathroom as well.
Fantastic view from the breakfast restaurant over old Faro. The breakfast was good, with a large variety of choices, and included in the room price.
We only stayed for one night, but would definitely return if given the possibility.

Perfectly nice 4 star hotel.
Lovely roof top pool with fab rooms.
Some noise may be an issue with roadside low level rooms.
The harbour side rooms are quiter and enjoy the formosa views.
Airport bus stop, bus and train station all close by.
