Stayed here for 3 weeks over christmas and new year. I cannot praise the staff enough they were very friendly helpful and kind. The hotel is very close to every thing in Faro, great restaurant and supermarkets . I did not eat breakfast every day but what was provided was good. Bath room walls could do with a good clean...

Clean and comfortable hotel, close to Faro airport. Stayed 2 nights before my flight back to Canada. From the moment I checked in, I felt at home. What a lovely family, Lisa and her husband Frank. They made me feel very welcome and were very helpful with pointing out places to visit near the hotel. My flight was early in...

Clean and tidy location for a few days in Faro. I've stayed only 2 nights in the hotel, we had breakfast but they arranged a half-board with dinner in a restaurant nearby which had good typical Portuguese food. A "must do" in Faro is to go in the evening in a bar with Fado music - there are some not...

Agree with previous reviews - clean, tidy, good location and value for money if your expectations are realistic. We were there for 2 nights. 3 issues however which spoiled our enjoyment of a rather charming hotel in its own way. 1. First morning no hot water. Staff we're charming and apologetic but that does not compensate for no shower or...

Don't let the somber pictures on the website fool you.... this is an excellent choice if you want one night in Faro. The city location was ideal to savor the delights of Faro..... from the start the reception was generous and informative with staff speaking native English, very helpful and thoughtful. We accidentally left gloves & boots outside in the...

Positives - A young lady with excellent English, checked us in. She was very polite and helpful. The room was basic but clean and tidy. Fresh sheets and towels every day. A voucher for the wifi had to be obtained from the reception each day for each device, it worked fine. Breakfast was a buffet type affair, plenty of choice...

Thank you for your review. I would be remiss if I did not comment regarding your experience with us. We are a very family orientated hotel and treat our clientele as part of our family, which has always been our appeal to our customers. To hear that you were ignored in our lobby bar is very unsettling. Our goal is...

Stayed here for a week as part of a vacation. The hotel is relatively small and homely. The staff were excellent, very helpful and friendly. It is only a short taxi ride from Faro airport and located close to Faro town centre. The bus and rail station are almost together and an easy 10 minute walk from the hotel. The...

My stay here was unplanned due to my Dad being admitted to Faro hospital with pneumonia. The hotel was superbly placed for visiting the hospital but the thing that separates this hotel from any other is the people. We were obviously worried about my Dad's health and unsure of so much being in a foreign country but Lisa and her...

Hello, just wanted to say Lisa was brilliant, especially with information sharing to insurance and family, in our situation as my father was ill in hospital which was five minutes away.

“Rooms were kept very clean and tidy by the cleaning staff, Beds we found a little firm, but that could be because we were used to softer ones at home. The only thing that was a little tiring was the air-con unit in the next room which was quite loud and disturbing at night.”
