I booked Hotel Eva when looking for a short stay convenient to airport and in easy reach of beaches and day trips. I was not disappointed with my choice. Hotel Eva is a good hotel, conveniently situated for airport (I paid 1.90Euro on bus at airport and was in the hotel 20 mins later), train station (3 minutes walk) and bus station (next door).
The breakfast was excellent, with every possible choice to hand and I used the hotel restaurant for two evenings where I found the food to be of excellent quality.
It seemed most people staying in the hotel were there as a stopover on the way to Algarve resorts , or for business, but I stayed for 4 days and took the train for day trips . The hotel reception recommended Tavira (30minutes by train) and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there. I also took the train to Lagos (1hr 30mins) which is much more of a tourist resort.
Faro itself is a pleasant place to stay , with a lovely old town feel. It is covered in a day and therefore you will need to take day trips if staying there as I did.
I would recommend paying the extra for a Marina view as it was pleasant to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by.
I did not use the spa or health club but it seemed very popular with the locals - usually a good sign.
