A beautiful 18th century place with a dramatic view and surrounded by orange trees, with original and vintage furniture and decor. All the bedrooms are in a modern extension of the old palace, with all the confort and ammenities one would expect, including spa and swiming pools. If looking for a quiet mansion to relax and walk around typical unspoiled small towns and orchards, this is the place in southern Portugal. We'll certainly repeat the experience next time we are around.
Excellent little hotel, close to Faro airport, clean, cheap and cheerful. Helpful staff, don't expect any luxuries, good air con, fantastic shower, no food as such so eat in restaurant next door. Ideal if you have an early flight or are arriving late. Didn't get overly excited with the continental breakfast, but at that price I wasn't expecting to.
Hotel Faro is directly at the harbor which gives a nice few when you have breakfast on the roof terrace. Though it is in the city I found it very quiet. The stuff is totally nice and answers every question you have as good as possible. The room was good and comfortable with air condition.
For an overnight stay before the next day' flight, this hotel is adequate. The breakfast is quite good, but in a land overflowing with oranges, to charge a euro for a glass of fresh juice is a bit much!
Shuttle service to airport doesn't start until 8am this isn't stated in the hotel advert, we needed to leave at 6am - so had to take taxi 10 euros! Receptionist proceeded to tell us that breakfast started at 7:30, again no good as we left at 6! So free shuttle service and breakfast not available for those with an early flight!

This bustling characterful little town, gateway to the region, is overlooked by most Algarve visitors. Its elegant cobbled, peaceful Old Town is a delight for strolling. The Cathedral is its highlight; climb to the top for wonderful views across Faro’s lagoon. The newer, late 19th-century part of town is a likeable jumble of shopping streets, local bars and restaurants, a regional museum and the Carmo Church with a ghoulish bone chapel.
