A good location and friendly staff. Excellent breakfast and the top floor restaurant and plunge pool are both very pleasant. But... We booked through Booking.com and the price turned out to be way over (about €50) what it should have been! We were told to park in the underground car park at €12.50 per day when we later found out...

This is the second time we have stayed at The Hotel Faro. It's a lovely place, with amazing food, great young staff, great views and location and facilities. Our only comment would be that the rooms are in need of TLC now, peeling paint and some damp, but not enough to spoil the stay. We will definitely be back again....

We had the Sunday buffet, which is remarkably popular with locals, so reservations are advised. The selection of foods is great, and is apparently varied to use seasonal foods. The prawns and mussels were great, as was the smoked salmon. I have learned to avoid the dried cod dishes (bacalau) – the Portuguese seem to love it, but I find...

The view from the dinning room and terrace is beautiful, you can see the old city and the wetlands between the city and barrier islands. At walking distance from Faro old city, a must for all visitors to Faro. Staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are simple but very clean.
