“A place to forget the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

I Loved the place!!! If you want to get relax and forget your stress, this is the place. We went with our little daughter and she had great time. The beach is perfect for kids because there are not big waves. There is a little park for the kids where they can expend their energy. The breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in what you pay by day, but if you want food out of this times you can always order it. The food was very good for me, and you can eat all you want. Available wi-fi if you need to get connected to the world. There is not hot water in the rooms but come on, you won't need it with that weather, you just need that water to refresh yourself. But if you need hot water you can always ask for it, and they will bring it to your room. The room had a porche and view to the sea, it was amazing. We could see the sun raising in the morning...what an experience!!! The linen is impeccable and fresh...no humid or bad smell like in some island's hotels...finally, nature, nature and nature everywhere...what else could you ask for?

Room Tip: Ask the rooms with view to the sea...but all the rooms are great...

We spent two nights at Punta Faro and loved it. The snorkeling was excellent, the lack of vendors and day-trippers very welcome and our rooms were comfortable and had a beautiful view of the sea. One recommendation to management would be to add a chair to the rooms - I found I missed one. There was no hot water, but this wasn´t really a problem as the weather was hot and the water came out warmish anyway. The food was simple but tasty and the coconut lemonades and Caipirovskas delicious. Staff were friendly and there was free wi-fi which was a bonus for our teenage daughters. We needed to relax and we certainly managed to do that at Punta Faro.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view

Went recently for a wedding and although the views and beaches are amazing, the place is overshadowed by the terrible service and lack of attention from the employees at the hotel. We were promised a couple of expeditions that never happened and there was hardly a waiter serving the beach. As other reviewers have said, the food is appalling and they serve the same thing every day. Although the room was spacious enough, there is no feeling of security and the water is not clean enough to shower.
Will probably never return to this place unless someone really starts managing this hotel.

It's a great place! Amazing island and a very cozy hotel. The food it is not sofisticated but is very good. The staff are perfect and the beach very nice. Negative points: old fashioned bedroom, no hot water and the desserts are definetely terrible. Since the we have to pay for internet, we forgot the world and relax a lot.

My husband and I, 2 of my daughters, their husbands and children came with us! The best vacation ever!!! If you want to be disconected from the world and enjoy each others company this is the place to go! The food was very good, very fresh and plenty of it. We all enjoyed it! Simple, but very tasty. Everything was very relaxed, like if you were among family! The people taking care of us were very pleasant and always ready to help you! Can't wait to spend another vacation there!!! Thanks again for a GREAT time!!! We never felt like we were surounded by four walls or snobish people, keep your mind open and enjoy a very down to earth place!!!!
