Just spent 5 nights at Hotel Eva and it was great. Check-in was quick and efficient. The staff members at the reception desk are very helpful, and provided us with information on trains, buses and boats - even providing us with printouts of timetables. We had marina views, and the view was superb from the balcony. The rooms are compact in size, but not cramped. The bathrooms were clean and well-equipped with toiletries and towels.
The breakfast display is exceptional - there is scrambled egg, sausages, bacon, mushrooms, boiled eggs and beans. A variety of breads, a toaster, jams, hams, cheeses, fresh sliced fruits, fruit juices (not squash!), yoghurt, pastries and cake - all meticulously laid out regardless of the time of morning you turn up for breakfast. It's served on the 5th floor so the view from there is great.
There were local music performances around the marina every night, going on until midnight or 2am. These were pretty loud, and even the double glazing couldn't block it out. This is no fault of the hotel though, and may only be a summer season thing. Didn't use the pool, but it's on the roof with a poolside bar.
Took the 30 minute boat trip to Ilha Deserta - the water was crystal clear for swimming and the sandy beach was clean. The railway station is conveniently behind the hotel, and train services run east and west along the Algarve coast - we went to Lagos and Tavira.
