My Husband and I return every year to celebrate our wedding anniversary as this is where we spent our honeymoon.
Its a friendly place and the breakfasts are wonderful, fantastic selection.
Dinner is a must, try the cataplana dish :-) its excellent
Super modern little hotel close to the old city Center and perfect for exploring Faro. Really ideal location, walking distance to everything, only 5min to all the sights and about 15min to the train station if you want to head to Lagos after. Rooms were nicely decorated and comfortable although a little noisy, not sure if it was the street or other guests. We also had some rushing water sounds in our bathroom throughout the night, don't know why but we closed the door and it seemed to be quiet enough to sleep. Overall would stay there again, really nice and modern and clean, good value for what we paid.

We stayed overnight, were very pleased to find a bar facility available after a stressful journey. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially when we were unable to re open the bathroom door. Fortunately no one was inside. It wqs very stiff and needed a lot of force. We didn't close it again during our stay!
Breakfast buffet layout could be improved.
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.
